Fighting a possible base closure
the power curve rather than behind it there," he said.
Rep. Bob Barr of Smyrna. Rep. Phil Gingrey (R Marietta).
it and say, 'Oh, we don't have a clear and present danger' is I think the word that he used," Barr said. has a national security interest in Iraq and while he doesn't think that means sending "a bunch of troops" back in, providing the support and influence through intelligence and perhaps drones is needed.
"Based on my past Nike Air Max Thea Premium Grey experience having looked at some of these issues when I was in the House before, and questions came up about federal funds Nike Air Max Thea Nordstrom
The stakes are high with Dobbins Air Reserve Base and Lockheed Martin at risk from a potential base closure in the near future, Barr said.
Barr said he's never been an advocate of nation building, noting it didn't work in the ancient world, colonial world or post World War I era, where Britain carved up the Middle East into artificial boundaries that have largely caused the problems there today. withdrew its forces from that country.
That country is now in chaos, he said.
for bus rapid transit, my conclusion was that in very, very, very rare instances is it a wise investment of taxpayer money," Barr said.
Sue Everhart of east Cobb, former chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party, said one of the reasons she's endorsed Barr is because he understands the importance of Lockheed to Cobb's economy.
Turning to county Chairman Tim Lee's dream for a bus rapid transit line, which would need hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government to finance, Barr said it's a question the voters of Cobb County should decide.
"You don't even have to have lived over there in that part of the world to know that the worst thing you can create or give rise to, anywhere, but particularly in that part of the world, it is so volatile and so potentially violent, is a vacuum," Barr said.
"The danger to the F 35 program that's always there, or to the continuation of the C 130 program and the next model of C 130 and some of the renovation work that Lockheed is involved in. There are constant threats to that, and we need to make sure that we always remain ahead of Grey Nike Air Max Tavas
"That being the case, I don't think it would be responsible as Barry would do to just wash our hands of Air Max Tavas Blue Fade

"We can't fill that vacuum certainly that we helped create, but we can help contain it right now, and that's particularly important given what's happening in Syria," Barr said. "We made I think some serious blunders there in providing arms to groups that we really didn't seem to have an understanding of who they were, what we would do with them. They're now finding their way into the ISIS camps. This is a very serious situation over there and to just step back and say, 'Oh, I don't see a clear and present danger' or 'We ought not to be doing something' betrays either a lack of knowledge of what's going on over there or a very naive sort of Ron Paulian view of the world."
Barr says it s important for Cobb to have voice
The threat is also from the administration's "constant nibbling away" at the defense budget.
To avoid a base closure, Lockheed needs to keep as many jobs filled at the plant as possible.
With no Democrat in the race, the July 22 runoff is expected to determine the election. House from 1995 to 2003, claims Loudermilk has already alienated the Republican leadership, an action he called strange.
Creating a power vacuum in the Middle East
"If Lockheed goes and we were to lose the contracts and they pulled up and moved to California, it would take, I believe, Cobb County 30 years to recover, even with the business we have, because the vast majority of blue collar workers work at Lockheed in Cobb County and they make good money," Everhart said.
"So we're going to have a very young delegation with no senior members on key committees up there," Barr said. "That's why it's so important in my view that I be back up there. But the danger to Lockheed and to Dobbins is not just the Base Realignment and Closure Commission, which could crop up next year or the year after," he said.
Of the 57,009 voters, Loudermilk came in first with 20,862 votes, or 37 percent, followed by Barr with 14,704, or 26 percent, state Rep. Ed Lindsey (R Buckhead) with 8,448, or 15 percent, and Tricia Pridemore with 9,745, or 17 percent. Trailing behind them were Larry Mrozinski with 4 percent and Allan Levene with 2 percent.
"Do we want somebody in the Congress representing the 11th District, and this applies especially to Cobb County, which if I'm not back in the Congress will be the first time in decades, at least three decades, that Cobb County has not had somebody from Cobb representing them in the House of Representatives," Barr said. "Do the people want somebody that actually has a track record and the experience on the issues that matter to the district and to Cobb County to once again move those issues forward, or do they want to take a shot in the dark and send somebody up there with no experience in that arena, and who's already basically told people I'm just going to be on my own up there. In other words, somebody that won't get anything done."
One of the ways to remain off the chopping block is by making as much use of the base as possible, whether it's bringing in such state agencies as emergency management to fill empty space or making use of the old Army building, Barr suggested.
That is achieved by having a strong Georgia delegation in Congress, Barr said. Rep. Reps. Phil Gingrey (R Marietta) and Paul Broun (R Athens).
