He says if elected he wants to get casinos back open to generate sales tax. He says he plans to work on a four point system.

First on his agenda: firing John Tyson. Second: dismantling Alabama’s gaming task force. He says he will also put people back to work and call a special session the day after inauguration.

“The people of Alabama are hurting and we need a governor that's willing to come to the table and fight for these jobs. Not only am I going to fight for the entertainment centers in Alabama, I am going to fight for a lottery so that everybody in Alabama that has an education,” said Sparks.

The inauguration is in January 2011. The legislature is scheduled to meet in March.

    I think for myself actually, I always have, I always will. No, I don't like gambling, yes, I am a Christian. I have my own views and opinions as to why I am against gambling. I don't want to see any families torn apart by someone who gets an addiction. I'm not a Riley fan. I'm a HUGE Jesus fan, but don't try and compare Jesus some insane cult leader. Whether or not you believe in Jesus is up to you, but at least be respectful about Him. Just because someone is against gambling does NOT make them a so-called Bible thumping, Bob Riley following, Koolaid drinker. If you believe that just because someone is a Christian, you're the one who's not thinking for yourself.

    Sounds like somebody with some common sense, something in short supply in Alabama. Good luck trying to convince the Jesus cult that the benefits outweigh the risks.

    I really like Ron Sparks and I just hope he keeps to his word if he is elected as our next Governor.
