What do Libertarians Believe in? Libertarian Andrew Hunt, Candidate for Governor

Let's talk about what Libertarians believe in and how the Libertarian solutions to problems are different from solutions sometimes proposed by Republicans and Democrats.

Andrew Hunt, the Libertarian Party's candidate for Governor, will be the presenter. There will be a question and answer period after Andrew Hunt's presentation. 

Hear about some the Libertarian solutions to problems such as how to create more and better paying jobs, better education, and Atlanta traffic.

As founder and former CEO of a leading nanotechnology company, Andrew Hunt knows the importance of a highly educated work force. He started nGimat as a “one man operation” and served as its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer for twenty years. He developed commercial relationships with industry-leading companies as well as research partnerships with key government agencies. As a pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, he has proudly represented Georgia in numerous national and international forums where leaders from around the world collaborate to solve the most complex challenges on the planet. Andrew is the published author of four book chapters and more than fifty scientific papers. He is also an inventor, with more than fifty patents proposed, pending, or issued.

Doors open at 7 to order dinner, official start at 7:30, you can show up late, we understand traffic and work get in the way.  The menu is here: www.alphasoda.com

The restaurant is 1.5 miles north of GA Hwy 400 (exit 9).

We're an eclectic group that meets to respectfully exchange ideas about controversial topics. 

Our group is more focused on learning and hearing different view points than winning a debate. We try to keep the discussion respectful and encourage devil's advocates. It's a chance to talk with and learn from people you would never meet in your existing circles. The conversations are moderated to keep things friendly.

The rules are pretty simple: be nice, brief and on topic.

There is a $1 optional charge to help cover the cost of the meetup group ($144 / year), and buy speakers beers & dinner when we have them.

    Andrew Hunt gave a great presentation, has got the background & personality to make a difference in GA as governor.

      I have to comment as well. The idea that your vote is thrown away is simply not possible as long as Georgia requires 50% +1 to win. Let me explain. If candidate A achieves a majority with 50%+1 votes, then it makes no difference how candidate B and C divided up the remaining votes -- candidate A still wins. Giving your vote to candidate C did not change the outcome. If you had given your vote to candidate B, it would not have changed the fact that candidate A still has the majority. If no one achieves a 50%+1 majority, then there is a run-off in which you get a chance to vote for your second choice, or perhaps vote a second time for your first choice. Taking votes from one candidate to vote for another does not help a third candidate win -- that third candidate was either going to win regardless or he is forced into a run-off. So you are never throwing away your vote win you vote your conscience. You are, however, sending a message, that will not go unheard.

      Part 2: When Libertarians start pulling 10-15% of the vote, we become a large enough voting block to swing an election and both sides will realize that they need our votes to win. They will shift policy to woo us. If policy changes in the direction of more freedom, then we win regardless of who is elected.

    14 minutes can turn to 60 minutes in Atlanta traffic in a heartbeat! We'll be there -- it's a great location for us. Can't wait to try the food as well as the conversation.

      At the risk of coming off as a nerd, I'd like to comment that a minute is not a measure of distance. It means nothing unless you are talking about a minute of angle of Longitude or Latitude, which I'm pretty sure this was not the intention here.

    Very intriguing topic. Not a great location, for me.

      The food makes up for the location! They have a daily selection of 15+ vegetables! I have eaten at this restaurant for 20 years.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
