I was going to suggest two sections of angle iron mounted in concrete 
that you could then lag the fence post to, but the Simpson E-Z Base 
already suggested looks like a better product you can get off the 
shelf.  I know people that use the E-Z Spike for mailboxes, but I don't 
know that it would stay stable enough for a gate post.

We had a fence rot out and they used some j-bolts to bolt a pair of 3" 
aluminum angle iron brackets to a blob of concrete.  The fence posts 
were lag bolted to the angle.  No wood in contact with the ground.  Felt 
sturdy, even at the gate.
