It doesn't matter to me personally if this becomes law, but it will bring more revenue for our communities, therefore, we should vote for it.

There are better ways to generate revenue. People who drink already drink on Sunday, they just have to buy it ahead of time on another day. So, if they are buying it already, then there's essentially no loss of revenue. I salute former Governor Sonny Perdue for not allowing this issue to ever come to a vote during his administration. He is to be commended on his unwavering stand to honor the biblical principle of "remembering the Sabbath and Keeping it HOLY".......NOTHING good will come from an increase in consumption of alcoholic beverages on Sundays. To the contrary, stats show there will be a rise in accidents, an increase in deaths associated with DUI's and BUI's, and other negative impacts on our communities and the lives of our families. The loss of life and potential for increase property damages associated with an increase in consumption on Sundays certainly far outweighs anything positive that could come from a few dollars of "revenue"....

I totally agree with imzachsdad. Nothing good will come from this. I don't think this should ever come to a vote or fruition. OMGoodness - what has happened to my old hometown. I'm glad I'm not there anymore. I'm so sad.
