Mindset on Politics - a One Act Play
Before the election last November a friend told me he would vote for Roy Barnes for governor if Barnes was a Republican. Well, he has the right to vote as he sees fit. And I have the right to do the same. I much prefer to vote for the person, not the party. I feel I have more freedom of choice that way.
"The state's new insurance commissioner seeks legislation to keep insurance commissioners from doing what John Oxendine did: Granting themselves insurance licenses without taking mandatory tests.
Ralph Hudgens, who succeeded Oxendine as insurance commissioner, wrote the new legislation after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday that Oxendine issued himself several insurance agent and adjuster licenses the day before his term ended. Oxendine used an agency regulation that enabled him to waive the mandatory tests other Georgians must pass to get the licenses
Hudgens is expected to be introducing in the state House a bill that would prevent insurance commissioners from bypassing testing requirements and simply granting themselves licenses." – ajc.com, about Feb 20, 2011
With the above in mind, here is a one person one act play:
Say John Oxendine granted himself a state insurance license just before leaving office without taking the required test? That is just like a Democrat, misusing his authority to give himself special treatment!
Er – what? Say Oxendine is a Republican?
Well, if he is a Republican it just means we don’t know the whole story. If he did give himself an insurance license you know he did it for a good reason! I still have trust in him and would vote for him again!
