Frank Niceley

I recommend Frank Niceley for State Senate District 8 in Tennessee. He's been in the state house for several years and I've been impressed reading about him.

This past session he sponsored a "no sales tax on gold and other precious metals" bill. He is very free market oriented. He wants to legalize commercial deer farms, legalize cock-fighting (he's gotten a lot of grief over it, but it's a great tourist attraction!) he successfully led a bill that made a dent in the raw milk prohibition law (now people can drink raw milk if they purchase a share of the cow, so a step in the right direction). He fought the REAL ID act very hard (watch this GREAT interview with him about REAL ID http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OSnMGradyQ&feature=player_em...! ) He just won his primary. He was under a lot of pressure because the NRA dropped his rating from A+ to C because he voted against a bill that would allow gun owners to have guns in parking lots against the property owners' wishes (can't defend gun rights without protecting property rights first - no one forces the gun owner to work or shop somewhere that doesn't allow guns). And he has a great big picture of Confederate soldiers in his office for all of Nashville to see from the street, so he has good interior design tastes as well!
