I am no jones supporter at all.. My point was people claim not to know of these things but many of jones issues have been in the local paper. How do people choose to ignore the facts of jones confuses me I guess.
I think they were just agreeing and pointing out how completely mindless and devout his little cult of personality is. Its really going to be funny to watch what excuses they come up with when the info starts to flow out in the media. I want to hear their excuses then. What they are doing now is getting angry and scared so they want to come on here and force us to show our hand early so to speak, they want time to prepare and build a solid defense but that wont happen, it would just be lies anyways. We will control this fight and fight on our terms when we are ready, we will control the high ground and they will have to try and take it when times already ran out. Just hold your ground and spread the word to everyone you see.

Nazis, that's a little much dont you think. Well someone had to invoke the Godwin law I guess eventually lol. I agree a business can support whoever and i have no problem with that but have no problem with anyone boycotting one either. I personally wont support a business that supports Jones just because I know the truth but its anyone's right to do so. You guys is a strong statement too, I wouldn't say anything like this is endorsed by Wilson but he cant force his supporters to not do something ( he can just suggest or ask to not to do) then he would be a Nazi, you know like Jones forces his employees to do things which might I add are many Hatch Act violations.

I vote split myself, a conservative as well. i dont think its so much a "lynch mob mentality" as much as some people are just really tired of the BS in this county. I have never seen that kind of mentality around his close supporters so take that as it is.

My question. Did this class benefit us? How? Plus how much did it cost taxpayers and how long was our sheriff absent from work with pay in order to take this class. In reality does it help jones more by padding his resume or did it help the citizens any. Crime stats don't show it's helped us
Crime stats dont lie and the sad part is they are his own stats and they are horrible since he took office. He is doing nothing but padding his own resume and whats more is no one can show one thing how his education has helped anyone in this county but him.

Where's the stopping point? It's ok to financially damage sometime who does not share your political viewpoint. Great. Why not just beat the Hades out of him? Sound crazy? Maybe, maybe not.In Germany in the 1920's political opposites attacked one another in the streets. Jones has only a slim chance in the next election. Isn't necessary to make this a fight between good and evil.

Lance Wilson is a nice guy but so was Barney Fife. I would want him as a friend but not as Sheriff. He is just not qualified for the job. As far as all the talk about scandals and corruption surrounding Sheriff Jones I have seen no proof of this, just talk from people who do not like him. As far as I know itís just people who were arrested by Jones that are venting some personal vendetta. There are only 10 to 20 people in the county that read the nonsense on topix so it will not have an effect on the election.
I personally think we should hire a sheriff not elect one.
Jones is a educated fool don't let all his paper impress you he lacks common sense and the ability to lead just look at his record of all the immoral things that has happened while he has been sheriff. Everything that has been said about Jones is true he has no leadership qualities

Ted Bundy had a four year degree and attended law school, he maintained a 3.85 gpa. The detective that caught and convicted him was a high school graduate with his police certification. I say the education and training credits were on Ted Bundys side, but the detective was clearly the better person and foiled a serial killer through hard work and commitment to his community. Jones has more education and training than Wilson, but Wilson is clearly the better person for the job.

The reality of the matter is, businesses are free to support who they wish and consumers are free to do business or not do business with the these places based on their personal beliefs. Many people are so tired of politics as usual. I think the belief behind not supporting businesses that support Jones is more than a matter of signs being placed but many of these businesses are financially supporting Jones campaign so those opposed to Jones do not want to ,by proxy , help fund the same thing they are trying to unseat. Makes perfect sense to me. Simply put, why spend your money places that are contributing to campaigns you don't believe in.

Well obviously the stopping point would be just before street riots like the ones in Munich at that time. I suppose if we follow this train of thought the next step after Wilson wins is death camps? I think you may be over dramatizing the situation as in all honesty this isn't even half as bad as some Sheriff elections in the south. Its a very important Sheriffs election but not exactly a National Socialist movement. I do appreciate your moderate temperament and it takes that to even out the extremes but I dont think expressing disdain with businesses that support the opposition is extreme behavior, after all they are the opposition and that's the nature of the game. I do disagree with you however about it being about good and evil. I think if you knew more of the information some of us do you would probably agree with me. More of that will be forthcoming. If evil is a bit of a strong word then we can agree on good vs. bad if that works for you.

I agree it's not a good vs evil type of situation but more of an out with the old , in with the new type of politics. People are just tired of the good ole boy systems running the show.

What a great idea! Let's run the few people who can keep a business afloat in this county into the ground if they don't agree with our politics.

Did "Christian" Lance Wilson come up with this stellar idea?

Same garbage more words and no proof. Where are the links to the stories?
I want to see where Jones was convicted of a crime, involved in a cover up or a scandal.
Innocent till proven guilty.
Your rumors and hearsay evidence are useless.

While every candidate appreciates support from their base, Lance Wilson and his campaign team do not endorse boycotting any business because of their candidate preference. We prefer to let our voices unite and be heard on May 6, 2014.

You can call a lot things into question but you can't call Wilsons Christianity into question. Did Christian sex swinger Jones put you up th that or are you that dense? Man you people say Wilson doesn't have much support then next thing you say is they will have enough numbers to run businesses into the ground lmao. Worried much? Get a life or get your story straight.

A person is free to do as they wish. I don't think this is the best approach but people are entitled to their opinion. I can tell you this did not come out of Wilson's camp or those close to him. Like said earlier, people are tired of politics as usual so Wilson's supporters are spread wide throughout the county more than jones camp realizes. My guess is some that are tied to Jones publicly but support Wilson discreetly may have formed this idea as a way to support Wilson in their own way since they can't openly voice their opinion.

If you take sides with a crook, you're a crook. If you agree with how Jones does business, you can't be trusted with my money.

What has Alan Jones' education done for you, me, and the citizens of our county? The crime rate has nearly doubled on his watch, and that's using his statistics that have been submitted by his office. I have to believe you'll be hearing more about the scandals and corruption coming soon. Being educated doesn't make you qualified or the best person for a job.
I agree, I work for some people that have college degrees, but couldn't tie their shoes without me and another person in our office. All the college in the world doesn't mean anything if your dumb, lazy or crooked. I have always done business with people I like and agree with, I think everybody does, if you run a business and you don't won't to chance losing any customers, vote for who you want and while at work, don't get into politics.

If you're goin to boycott the businesses that support Alan Jones.... You will have To go out of the county every time you leave your house, because pretty much every business other than Ben Grifin supports him
No boycotts
