Competing head-to-head in the Georgia Republican primary for the United States Senate in 2014 we got to know each other well. During a long year of primary and runoff campaigning, each of us pledged to support the eventual nominee.
We honored that pledge and put our differences aside. Our differences were nothing compared to our differences with the Democrats who wanted another seat in the United States Senate to push President Barack Obama’s progressive agenda.
Together, we put the people of Georgia above personal politics because we knew what was at stake in 2014 if Republicans did not win control of the Senate. Even more is at stake for the entire country if we do not win the White House this November.
Trump is our only chance to shake up the status quo in Washington. Trump is our only chance to stop excessive spending and over regulation sucking the very life out of our free enterprise system. Trump is our only chance to restore American leadership around the world with a strong foreign policy.
Trump has tapped into a growing movement of disenfranchised Americans. His powerful message has motivated more people to get involved in the political process and he has helped increase Republican primary turnout by over 60 percent. He is listening to all of us and he has already proven he is ready to do things differently in Washington.
It is time to truly change the direction of our country and make America great again.

President Gerald Ford pardoned former President Richard Nixon on September 8, 1974 for“all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974.”
On Sept. 8, one of the most enduring franchises in TV and movie history celebrates its 50th birthday. Star Trek debuted on NBC in 1966, developed by Roddenberry, a former Los Angeles cop who wanted to make a TV series which could sneak past the rampant escapism of most programs back then.
At a time when scripted TV rarely dealt directly with the turbulence of the times, Star Trek set its social messages against a space opera backdrop. Swashbuckling Captain Kirk ran the Enterprise, backed by cerebral first officer Mr. Spock and emotional Southern medical officer Dr. Leonard McCoy.
On the surface, the show’s plots dealt with exotic alien worlds in a future where space travel was commonplace. But Roddenberry and his writers slipped in subtle messages.
One classic story pointed out the absurdity of racism by depicting a war among members of an alien race, where one faction was colored black on the left side of their face and body and white on the right. The other faction had the colors reversed.
And as the end of state-sanctioned segregation rattled America, Roddenberry featured TV’s first interracial kiss: Aliens forced Captain Kirk to smooch his African American communications officer Lt. Uhura.
