Enforce child support with criminal prosecution

For juvenile crime, nothing helps like good parenting

[A Harris Poll of] 2,500 middle and high school students found that 15% had personally carried a handgun at some point during the prior 30 days. 9% had shot a gun at another person. And 39% knew somebody personally who had been injured or killed by gunfire. We hear tragic stories nearly every week, not just in Atlanta, but also in rural communities around the state. The stories and the statistics are not only unbelievable, they are also morally unacceptable. This is not just a city problem. It is not just a rural problem. It is not a black problem it is not a white problem. This is a Georgia problem. And it’s a very big one. I want to do several things that I think will help...but let me say this: right up front! nothing will help as much as parents doing what parents are supposed to do: instill some values and some discipline and some tough-love at home. Parents have got to spend more time with their children. Nothing can take the place of that, not school, not church, nothing!

Rated 100% by the Christian Coalition: a pro-family voting record.

Miller scores 100% by the Christian Coalition on family issues

The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pat Robertson to give Christians a voice in government. We represent millions of people of faith and enable them to have a strong, unified voice in the conversation we call democracy.

    Our Five-Fold Mission:
  1. Represent the pro-family point of view before local councils, school boards, state legislatures, and Congress
  2. Speak out in the public arena and in the media
  3. Train leaders for effective social and political action
  4. Inform pro-family voters about timely issues and legislation
  5. Protest anti-Christian bigotry and defend the rights of people of faith.
Our ratings are based on the votes the organization considered most important; the numbers reflect the percentage of time the representative voted the organization's preferred position.
