Editorial: Amendment 1 is too confusing for words ||
Topic: Miscellaneous 5:09 pm EDT, Oct 25, 2010

This is why Wiki Voter Guide is needed...

The plain truth is that, at this moment, the Banner-Herald's editorial board - after hearing from advocates and opponents of the proposed amendment, and reading various commentaries, pro and con, on it - can't comment definitively on the proposal.

What the board can suggest at this moment, however, is that the ballot language approved by the Georgia General Assembly is outright misleading, and the process by which the amendment came to the ballot is more than a little confusing.

In truth, Amendment 1 on the Georgia ballot is an attempt by employers to prevent former employees from being able to accept jobs with competing companies in the state. It is an assault on individual rights. The ballot language "Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to make Georgia more economically competitive by authorizing legislation to uphold reasonable competitive agreements?" does not suggest that. People who are voting for this will have no idea what they are voting for.
