Libertarian David Montané Shines in Part 2 of Decatur News Online Candidate Survey

Check it out Folks,

Part two of Decatur News Online's candidate Survey is up and ready for scrutinization. Our guy, Libertarian David Montané had the best responses of the crew as he has previously posted Videos right here at Bludgeon & Skewer on Annexation and Budget priorities. It's a great series and a must read for any of the readership in the Decatur area.

Here are some snippets from DNO:

Question: Given declining revenues and a legal mandate to balance the budget, the state of Georgia has had to make tough spending choices. Please assess the current budget and/or provide details on your spending priorities.

David Montané (Libertarian):
Low-profile departments such as Natural Resources have been cut too deep (43%), in order to prevent high-profile departments such as Education from being cut as much. Education is about 60% of the state budget. As a business owner, I believe further cost savings can still be found in Education while also improving quality. For starters, let's get rid of the unnecessary CRC Tests for 1st and 2nd graders, and state-subsidized Practice SAT's. With the current Obama administration, we could also now get many "No Child Left Behind" mandates waived, relieving much administrative overhead. Quality would actually go up if our teachers and school administrators were not so pressured to perform miracles.
The Department of Corrections is a billion-dollar per year cost center which could be cut by 20-40% simply by decriminalizing victimless crimes. We would then also have less real crime, which should be defined as violence, theft and fraud.

Don't forget that the only forum that will feature all four candidates for State Senate 42 will be tonight at Congregation Beth Jacob at 1855 LaVista Road NE, Altanta, GA 30329 at 8PM. Be sure to get there early!

Vote for Smaller Government, Lower Taxes and More Freedom! Vote Libertarian David Montané for State Senate 42!
