Welcome to Georgia First, the website of Georgia's own champion of liberty... Ray McBerry!







Federal Attacks Upon our Liberties: The constitutional Republic given us by our Founding Fathers is in great peril today at the hands of an out-of-control federal government; and our states are now the final guardians of our liberty. It is the privilege and duty of the governor to interpose himself between his people and the enemies of their liberty, even when that threat comes from a federal leviathan. As governor, I will take that stand for the people of Georgia and will invoke the doctrine of interposition on their behalf. (more)

Taxes: I support the abolition of both income and property taxes and the replacement of them with a state sales tax. It is my belief that any graduated tax based upon income is Marxist and should be repudiated. For this reason, vigilance must be maintained in order to make sure that whatever sales tax is put into place should not be tied to income in any way, including the use of rebates; it should be a straightforward simple tax. (more)

Jobs: There are three things that I will promote from day one as Governor to encourage job creation. Implementation of these three things will make Georgia the envy of America for families and businesses and will result in the creation of more jobs than any other place in America. (more)



Education: Ray is the only former educator in the Republican race for Governor; he taught for more than ten years at both the high school and college level and in both public and private schools. (more)


Second Amendment: I adamantly oppose any effort to infringe upon the right of law-abiding people of Georgia to keep and bear arms and encourage public awareness of the principle that the best guarantee of liberty is a well-armed populace of good citizens. (more)


Life: I believe that all children, including the unborn, have a right to life and that the state of Georgia has the responsibility to protect that right. I support amending Georgia law so that it more clearly recognizes these basic rights of the unborn, beginning from the moment of conception. (more)


Immigration: Illegal immigration is one of the most critical issues facing Georgia in the early years of this century. The excessive influx of illegal immigrants is more than Georgia's infrastructure can effectively accommodate, resulting in neglect to the needs of our citizens and an increased tax burden upon those of us who live here legally. Furthermore, the excessive number of immigrants is unassimilable into our society and culture, creating counterproductive divisions and dangers to our historic way of life. (more)
