There are three statewide races that I have no clue as to who vote for. The races are Attorney General, Labor Commissioner and Insurance Commissioner.
In the AG race…I’m not a fan of Thurbert Baker. I believe he lied to the people of Georgia after the Kelo ruling. Baker said, “Fortunately for Georgians, our state constitution and state judiciary have consistently held that condemnation for private purposes is not acceptable under state law, a position that will be unaffected by today’s federal court ruling.” Though I believe that Constitutional amendment passed last session wasn’t strong and it leaves a truck sized hole for future abuse, the statutory law that was passed was adequate.
But Perry McGuire is wanting to go after the ACLU. I despise the ACLU, mainly because of their
socialist progressive interpretation of the Constitution on the 2nd Amendment and scores of other issues. But I do see them as doing good work against the PATRIOT Act and the NSA spying. Privacy is a natural right and it’s one of the few things I can agree with them on.
Considering my profession, I should probably keep my mouth shut about the Insurance Commission race. But any suggestions would be welcome.
I’m leaning toward Brent Brown in the Labor Commission race, but it’s a branch of state government that shouldn’t exist in the first place. Then again…Michael Thurmond wants to reach out to Libertarians.
Any advice? Who are you voting for in these races and why?
