This election isn’t so much about who controls the Senate but who gets
to be in control of your life! The truth is, both parties have been
controlling us for decades! Neither party in Congress thinks you are
responsible enough to make your own decisions but they certainly think
they are responsible enough to make decisions for you!
At her core, Amanda doesn’t believe Big Government solutions work! As a
former member of the Flowery Branch City Council, Amanda has an actual
record of voting to provide less government and more freedom to the
residents she represented on the City Council. She voted to base water
rates on actual usage, to allow residents to opt out of trash service,
to put Sunday Sales on the ballot, fought against expensive consultant
studies and to stop government from picking winners and losers.
You may hear that a vote for Amanda is a “protest vote” or that she’s a
long shot in this race. But Georgia is growing weary of voting for failed
promises and major party candidates who promise one thing during an
election only to deliver quite another in Washington. The one thing
Amanda can guarantee is that a vote for one of her opponents is a
vote for more government in our lives and less freedom! Her opponents
only want to rearrange Big Government in an attempt to make Big Government
more efficient. But when has redundancy ever produced efficiency?
Amanda wants to end our reliance on government solutions and get back
to the Constitutional purpose of the federal government by preserving our
It’s time we get serious about electing a candidate to the United States
Senate who understands the power and responsibility of the individual
lies in true Liberty, not in government.

Gay Pride Weekend
Amanda was proud to participate in her fifth Pride parade this year in
support of LGBT issues. Since 2010, Amanda has been at the Atlanta Pride
Festival reaching out to political activists. Most recently, Amanda received
great coverage from The Ga Voice in this year's election issue as a result

July 26th: Gave the DC Establishment the BANG BANG
Swafford for Senate hosted a FUN Raising Party on July 26th at the Georgia Gun Club
and everyone had a great time! The Georgia Gun Club is a First Class, top of the line,
BRAND NEW FACILITY located near the Braselton area and features an extraordinary

Volunteering at the Georgia for Fair Tax Booth, Cumming Fairgrounds
In July, while her opponents were only talking about bringing the Fair Tax to a vote
in the Senate, Amanda went to work in Forsyth County, Georgia at the Cumming Fairgrounds
to help the Georgia for Fair Tax organization enlist more supporters and create greater
understanding of the Fair Tax. As both a long time grassroots volunteer for the Fair
Tax and a former income tax preparer, Amanda clearly knows the advantages of moving
away from a system that penalizes earnings based on productivity.
Georgia Carry HB 60 Celebration
On July 1st, Amanda joined supporters throughout
Metro Atlanta at Adventures Outdoors in Smyrna to celebrate the hard fought victory led
by the grassroots Second Amendment organization Georgia Carry. HB 60 clarified
many conflicting provisions in Georgia's firearms statutes pertaining to where gun
owners could lawfully carry firearms in Georgia. Amanda has strongly
supported Second Amendment rights and spoke out on the day HB 60 was signed into law
saying, "With the passage of HB 60, Georgia has become one of the best states in
America for understanding the power and responsibility of lawful individuals pertaining
to gun ownership instead of the power and responsibility of our government."
Fourth of July Parade in Cobb County
Amanda and supporters gathered with the Libertarian Party of Cobb County to participate
in the annual Marietta Fourth of July parade and celebrate our nation's independence
from oppressive government rulers. Over 40,000 spectators were witness to a patriotic
float that proclaimed the virtues of smaller government not just some of the time but
all of the time! One of the highlights of the float was a talking bird that reminded
parade observers to "Ax the Braves Tax" in reference to the millions of new obligations
being placed upon Cobb County as a result of the new Braves baseball stadium.
Memorial Day Parade
The Memorial Day parade in Dacula was an outstanding parade! Our entry was seen by well over 10,000
people and many thanks go out to campaign volunteers who arrived early to decorate our entry! Blessed
are those who sacrifice today so we are free tomorrow!
