In Support of Our Flag, Our Anthem and All Which They Represent

Written by Senator John Albers

Our country’s national anthem is played at sporting events, holidays, festivals, political events and military bases throughout the country and the world. When it is played, it signifies our independence, support for our military, first responders and the privilege we have to be living in the greatest country in the world. For most, the “Star Spangled Banner” is chill-inducing and brings pride to those who hear it. However, for a select few, our anthem is a way to protest current events and political agendas. But thankfully, for most, it is an honor to stand with pride and put their hand on their heart in support of the anthem and the men and women who risk their lives daily for our freedom and this great nation.

Winning the War on Terrorism

Written by Senator John Albers

Winning the war on terror is more important than ever. It’s a war being fought at home and around the globe. Our nation and our liberties have come under attack in places like California and Orlando where lives were lost as a result of terrorist activities. It’s imperative that we stay alert, and realize that each one of us plays an important role in preventing and fighting the biggest threat to our security, our freedoms and our way of life.

Come Together—Stand United, Not Divided

Written by Senator John Albers

I struggle with words to describe the grave events happening in America and around the world this summer. I fell to my knees to pray on several occasions. Investigations will be conducted, and we’ll look for answers, but no answer will change the past. I reject the notion that a few bad people will divide our nation, the pundits and press sensationalizing every moment, creating additional controversy, and the leaders and groups who will use these tragedies for personal gain. We’ll mourn those who lost their lives, take a deep breath, and move forward. We are citizens of the greatest nation on earth, and with great resolve, better days are still ahead. May God bless the fallen.

An Abundance of Thankgiving

Written by Senator John Albers

This Thanksgiving, we have much to be thankful for as fellow Georgians and citizens of this great nation. It’s easy to take for granted the many blessings we have in our lives. Kari and I lost many good friends and family this year to heaven. Many times, it takes a tragedy for all of us to truly appreciate our family, friends and community. As I reflect on my abundance of Thanksgiving, I am both humbled and grateful.

Fair Tax: A Way to Restore the American Dream

Every day, thousands of people immigrate to America to pursue the American Dream; a dream of economic prosperity, success and freedom.

Their earnings increased in correlation to productivity increases. Middle-class Americans were thriving and making a life for themselves and their families.

What Rising Tuition Costs Mean for You

Transportation Funding Options

A major focus of the 2015 legislative session is improving the transportation options in Georgia. I have met and listened to scores of people; and I believe consensus exists. First, allow me to identify the problem. In Georgia, we have a growing population (5th fastest growing nationally for decades) resulting in congested roadways and infrastructure needing repair. In contrast, we spend the least per capita of all 50 states on transportation needs. Ultimately, we need to assure public safety while citizens and goods flow through our state. Secondly, we need to set parameters. Georgians overwhelmingly oppose a tax increase, including me. Lastly, the public deserves accountability and transparency with the funds used to solve these challenges.
