Tennessee Voter Guide – 2022 Primary Races

How To Vote For, Not Against, Your Values

Ratings: Every candidate is considered after thorough research; we also have a questionnaire for candidates to complete, including our Tennessee Taxpayers Protection Pledge.

Our highest ratings go to candidates who will defend freedom, stand for free enterprise, or have a conservative and/or biblical worldview based on their ability to stand firm against efforts to increase taxes, size of government, weaken law and order, and crush individual freedom. Here is our rating system:

 

  • ***** The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement.
  • **** Very good.
  • *** Acceptable.
  • ** Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning.
  • * Terrible. Do Not Vote. All your other votes will count.

JUDICIAL RATINGS

Judges sitting on the courts may be incompetent, corrupt or lazy. Even worse, many are political opportunists with a political agenda.

 

There are two types of judges: judicial activists and strict constructionists. A judicial activist legislates from the bench. Instead of strictly interpreting law, these judges make the laws. Instead of applying the law to facts, they rule based on their own values.

 

Judicial activists overturn voter-passed initiatives and laws passed by the state legislature because they personally have a different belief system, twist the law to rationalize their decisions, and impose their own moral codes, political beliefs, and secular values in an effort to reshape our society and promote social engineering.

 

Strict constructionists impartially arrive at a fair judgment based on law.

 

Judicial activists are usually more liberal; strict constructionists are usually more conservative.

HOW WE COME UP WITH A FINAL RATING

We come up with a final rating by taking the average of the candidate’s Judicial Index and Qualifications. For example, if the candidate had a Judicial Index of 8 and Qualifications of 6, their overall rating would be 7.

Rating 

Judges are rated on a scale of 1-5 — 5 being best.

5 Stars – The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement
4 Stars – Very good
3 Stars – Acceptable
2 Stars – Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning
1 Star – Terrible. Do Not Vote, Unless We Say Endorsed. All Other Votes Will Count
