AJC’s Wingfield: One Georgia senator, 13 reps earn A’s from limited government group

Another reminder that the primaries are less than a month away: scorecards and voter guides are beginning to appear.

The Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity, which champions limited government and free markets, has a new scorecard for the 2009-10 Legislature, and unfortunately for lawmakers the grades weren’t put on a curve: A’s were given to just one senator and 13 representatives who actually cast votes on the issues that were scored.

That’s one senator out of 56 and 13 representatives out of 180. Read the complete post.

Democracy, not Anarchy

I’m glad to see their scorecard. Now I know who not to vote for. Americans for Prosperity are nutcases. They advocate for limited anarchy, not “limited government.” Too bad too many people in this state don’t have the vocabulary to actually understand what all those high-flying “platforms” are really espousing.

Maybe this group, along with the other nutcases you mentioned need to head down to the Gulf. There they can get a glimpse of how free markets and states rights function in real time!
