Perdue or Nunn:
Which would make Better Decisions in U.S. Senate?
To determine which candidate would better represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate, consider the responsibilities of U.S. senators. Certainly, senators make laws and introduce resolutions and bills, but additional major items of Senate business include the confirmation of Supreme Court Justices and ratification of foreign treaties. If ratified by the Senate, foreign treaties become the law of the land by superseding the U.S. Constitution, State Constitutions and statutes.
David Perdue or Michelle Nunn: Which would vote your values on the following issues?
a. What qualifications would Perdue or Nunn require of nominees to the Supreme Court*?
b. Which candidate would secure borders and stop illegal entry into the U.S.?
c. Which would give amnesty to illegal aliens and invite more “unaccompanied” illegals?
d. Which would vote to enact a global tax to be collected and redistributed by the U.N.?
e. How would Michelle Nunn or David Perdue vote on national or global disarmament**?
f. Would they ratify the U.N. Convention on Rights of the Child and deny parental authority?
g. Would either ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its hot-line authorizing U.N. intervention between patient/parent and patient/physician?
h. Would Nunn or Perdue agree to the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) and the International Seabed Authority with its total jurisdiction over all oceans and everything in them, including the ocean floor with its solid, liquid or gaseous minerals? If it were ratified, the U.S. would be surrendering national sovereignty, independence of action, and wealth.
i. How would Nunn or Perdue handle the International Criminal Court treaty and its power to put service members serving overseas at risk of prosecution for petty or malicious charges?

Excerpts from Democrat and Republican Platforms
Democrat Party will select and confirm judges who are men and women of unquestionable talent and character, who firmly respect the rule of law, who listen to and are respectful of different points of view, and who represent the diversity of America.
Republican Party will insist on appointing constitutionalist judges, men and women who will not distort our founding documents to deny the people’s right to self-government, sanction federal powers that violate our liberties, or inject foreign law into American jurisprudence.
