Ok, so please go to http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/en-US/default.aspx  and research these newly implemented laws to see who and what they benefit, and who is harmed by them. Of special interest are HB 555, HB 757, HB 859, SR 675, SB 134, and SB 127, which IMHO should never have seen the light of day in any 21st Century State or Country. One clear item of contention is HB 127, which started as an adjustment to campaign and voting mechanics, but at the last minute became something else. Here is a article on Forbes that references this perfidy. The framing and details of much of SB 127 and the other referenced laws in the initial, middle, and ending phases amply demonstrates the degree to which certain segments of society will go to assist their personal causes at the expense of the general public.
