No Private Prisons

Private prisons in North Carolina have driven furniture manufacturers out of business. Citizens need to wake up: private prisons are not sustainable.

The next time a local construction firm wants to build a government project, they might have to compete with Ashley Paulk's private prison laborers. Paulk is now on the Georgia Board of Corrections. He'll be pushing private prisons everywhere, including Valdosta.

Construction firms will be out-competed for government contracts. Paulk is the Chairman of the Board of Guardian Bank. Why support a business that supports a private prison pusher? No thanks. I closed my checking account and took it elsewhere, and I urge Christians whose denominations have opposed private prisons (Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopal) to do their banking elsewhere. Where would Jesus bank? With a private prison pusher? I don't think so.
