Sue Ella Deadwyler is the marvelous lady that has personally dedicated her life to being our "UNPAID Lobbyist for The People" (she has been called by God to be a “watchman on the wall.” ).  She has been at the Georgia Capitol for 30 YEARS - looking out for YOU & ME - there to protect our Individual Rights, Personal Sovereignty, State Rights, State Soverignty, the GA State Constitution and our Federal Constitution. 
   She and her team of volunteers read THOUSANDS of bills and do so many good things it is mind-boggling!  One of her main jobs is; once they find a problem, she gets with the Elected Representatives involved and explains exactly what the problems are - sometimes it is a simple as ONE WORD!  Sometimes it is the whote thing!
   Sue Ella has a website, GeorgiaInsight.org, and she publishes a Newsletter by that name: Georgia Insight (weekly during the Georgia legislative session and monthly the rest of the year).    See a sample Newsletter
