Didnt the Gwinnett referendum state whether to allow the County to control whether there should be sales on Sunday? Also, when Newt runs out of money and drops out of the race in a month or two. Who do the delegates vote for then? Should we wait until the Fat Cat slobs in charge of the GOP party tell us who to vote for? How long will it take them to complete their back door deal making to try and strong arm the delegates into doing that?
