Question to ask at Candidate Forum for Bobby Franklin's seat - @politicalinsidr

On Monday, Sept. 12th, there will be a Candidates Forum in the Special Election race for the seat which was left vacant by the untimely death of the late Rep. Bobby Franklin.

Rep. Franklin, you will recall, was the lead sponsor of HB 3, the Constitutional Tender Act (along with many, many other excellent bills).

One of the panelists who will be questioning the candidates is a writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Jim Galloway. Now, Galloway has asked his readers to make suggestions for what questions he should ask them.

Here's my suggestion, posted on his wall at the AJC:

Here's a question that's actually relevant to the office they're running for, AND the particular Member's seat they're looking to fill:

If you are elected, you will be required to swear before God this constitutionally-required Oath of Office: "I do hereby solemnly swear or affirm that I will support the Constitution of this state and of the United States, and on all questions and measures which may come before me, I will so conduct myself, as will, in my judgment, be most conducive to the interests and prosperity of this state."

Since you will be oath-bound to support the U.S. Constitution, as well as the prosperity of the State of Georgia; and since the U.S. Constitution, in Article I, Section 10, mandates that each State use ONLY gold and silver coins in all of its financial transactions; and since the federally-forced use of over-inflated Federal Reserve Notes has destroyed over 95% of the wealth of the citizens of the State of Georgia:

Will you pledge right now to sponsor the late Rep. Bobby Franklin's bill, HB 3, the "Constitutional Tender Act," which would return the State of Georgia to adherence to the United States Constitution's actual legal tender provisions and increase the State's prosperity?

I believe that economically, this is the most important question that could be asked at such a forum, because economically, there is no greater threat to the future prosperity of the State of Georgia and its citizens -- indeed, to the citizens of every single State in the nation -- than the Federal Reserve's destruction of their wealth through its over-inflation of unconstitutional fiat currency.

If you agree, and would like to support the passage of the Constitutional Tender Act in Georgia, please contact Jim Galloway to let him know that you would also like to see this question asked:
