Skip to comments.Ratings of Georgia Candidates

The American Conservative Union (ACU) rated these seventeen Georgia State Senators as Conservative All-Stars: Don Balfour, Charlie Bethel, Dean Burke, Buddy Carter, Ronnie Chance, Tyler Harper, Hunter Hill, Jack Hill, Bill Jackson, Fran Millar, Jeff Mullis, David Shafer, Cecil Staton, Jesse Stone, Ross Tolleson, and Renee Unterman. ElectTheRightCandidate.us graded them as replaceable RINOs.
This discrepancy occurred because the two systems use very different grading systems. Both used conservative legislations like SB 101 that prevented the government creating a database of gun owners. However, the real test is how politicians vote on non-conservative legislations. Only ElectTheRightCandidate.us used the following non-conservative legislations.
All of the RINO Senators voted Yes to HB 318 that has taxpayer dollars investing in seed capital. Governments investing or owning businesses is socialism. It is crony capitalism when governments pick business winners and losers.
The RINOs voted Yes for HB 198 that licenses and regulates navigators for health care exchanges. Conservatives should be working to end ObamaCare, not to facilitate it.
All of these Senators voted Yes for SB 81 that protects Ginseng plants on private property. The result is that once farmers have planted Ginseng, they must continue planting it. Also, a person cannot build their home if a Ginseng plant is on the site. This legislation is now law and it destroys property rights.
All of these Senators except for Sen. Bethel also voted Yes for HB 354 that regulates pre schools. This should be a matter for the local school boards.
The ACU has the reputation of being a conservative organization. Rating seventeen replaceable RINOs as Conservative All-Stars tarnishes this reputation.

I have to disagree on their assessment of HB 198 which regulates ObamaCare navigators. the bill places restrictions on federal power and makes it more difficult for Federal government to operate exchanges inside Georgia.
I am happy with my Senator, John Albers. I followed the campaign of Hunter Hill, and I was impressed with what I saw.
More info on the ACU ratings can be found here.
ACU is run by Grover Norquist, who is pro Illegal Alien Amnesty and pro-Islamic Terrorist. He gives low ratings to those who do not support Illegal Alien Amnesty
The ACU in no way is an accurate measurement of Conservatism as it promotes many liberal ideas
The ACU cannot, and should not, be trusted.
They are the Trojan Horse to Conservative politics.
Glenn Beck speaks of defunding the GOP that should include the GOPe front structure like National Right To Life and the American Conservative Union.
Groups like these and others that dare to call themselves “Tea Party” sucker in grassroots conservatives to support RINO’s.
