Ansley, please don't send any more of them our way!!

Are you sure Clinton won Cobb. Karen Handel took Cobb in the 6th District race.

I'd have to agree with that.

Yes, she did. It was Clinton 48.8%, Trump 46.7% in Cobb.

The fact that OP had to ask the question, is a good sign I guess.

And honestly, I don't want Georgia to be California, with all their financial problems and such. And I don't want high taxes. I just simply want a non-crazy-conservative state with a moderate governor (of either party) a moderate to progressive social climate (with Bible-belt bigotry pushed far to the fringe), a friendly business climate with good economy and jobs (we already have that- just maintain it), but also with at least average or above average education performance, much improved health-related stats and general quality of life stats, better upward mobility ranking and a more equitable economy in general, and appropriate taxation levels that appropriately fund the appropriate amount of services, including vast commuter transit expansions and general road maintenance and infrastructure upkeep.

And legal pot. Legal and taxed.

The only part of Cobb in the 6th district is conservative East Cobb. Had all of Cobb been in the 6th and able to vote, Ossoff might have barely won Cobb, which went for Hillary over Trump in November.

Quite proud of that and of Cobb's progress, though I know it's not a blue county quite yet.

I'm not arguing that--just pointing the OP toward *more* conservative areas, as I would have pointed someone looking for liberal areas to Decatur, Dekalb County and the eastern and southern portions of CoA.

i am getting tired of the nastiness. i used to like stephen colbert but lately all he has been doing is saying stuff like "the only use for trump's mouth is a c*ck holster for vladimir putin". what problem does this solve? and how can he claim to have any high ground when he denounces the crap trump says when he's descended to the same level?

the liberals and the conservatives need to get over themselves, with all of their incessant sniping, condescension, and the crucifixion of members of the opposite party for the slightest little thing when they give members of their own party a pass to do a lot worse. we all need a dose of humility, and a turn towards seeing our state and our country as members of a family rather than a game where we beat each other into the ground. our country is disgusting right now and i can't say i'm proud to be an american at this point in our history.

Also, I think a big issue is things don't go well if either party just runs amok. You mentioned California's issues with the Dems having little opposition. Here in GA we're close to the GOP just being able to run amok. Hence being one Nathan Deal veto signature away from anti-gay legislation that would've had major negative implications for the state's people and economy. GA is inching toward being a purple state, which I think is best. Still currently at risk at shooting itself in the foot until the Dems get stronger.
This is the problem in a nutshell, there needs to be balance, most states are purple even if they aren't represented that way politically and they need to be to provide balance.

Too much one side or the other is bad or really bad.
