A Clear Choice for Virginia's Future

Your Vote Today is a Vote that Matters

Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson, and Mark Obenshain are a clear choice for integrity in Virginia's government.

As Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli mounted the first challenge of the unworkable "Affordable Care Act," which has indeed proved to be... UNWORKABLE! He's also a champion of real women's health, fighting for regulations to ensure safety in abortion providers' facilities. Kermit Gosnell shows us that that is quite reasonable. Indeed, it is the experience of the candidates that matters. Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson, and Mark Obenshain all have practical experience in leadership.

Contrast that with a man who's primary experience is FUNDRAISING, who's stellar business successes include Greentech Automotive, who's Mississippi plant has yet to produce an actual car [1.] Didn't Preston Tucker get indicted for running a factory that supposedly didn't make cars?; (Tucker actually hand-built fifty). Meanwhile, Greentech's new factory actually appeared in ORDOS, a town in CHINA. A beautiful rendering [2.] (produced by a CHINESE renderer) shows the actual production facility which creates NO American jobs. Another McAuliffe project, a pellet plant in Franklin, Virginia, has a similar abysmal record.

Today Virginians have a choice. We can vote for proven leaders who will represent our interests, or those who are beholden to big money interests that do not have our Commonwealth's best interests at heart. Vote today for Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson, and Mark Obenshain.

Fifteen Million dollars and plenty of free help from the mainstream media, a 'Libertarian' spoiler financed by an Obama bundler and some obvious hanky-panky at Northern Virginia polling places and transplanted New York Democrat fundraiser Terry McAulliff squeaked to a narrow victory. Unfortunately the strategy that has resulted in an effective shut-out for Conservative representation in the U. S. Senate for Virginia worked again.

Northern Virginia, ever growing, beholden (thanks Jamie), to the growing Federal government, now asserts its muscle in Virginia politics. I suppose we're expected to be 'gracious and magnanimous' in defeat, BUT... I'm sick and tired of being 'gracious and magnanimous.' I'm sick and tired of hanky-panky at the polls. I'm sick and tired of professional politicians of ALL party labels who are more tied to big money in Washington than looking out for the best interests of their own constituents!

I'm sick and tired of 'mainstream' republicans trashing Ted Cruz for actually representing the interests of aforementioned constituents. I'm sick of the whole 'Bob Michel' happy to be a kinder gentler version of the majority party mentality. I'm all for a welcoming attitude to the oppressed peoples of the world but I am NOT ready to give the country to the illegals, especially the Central American gangs.

I'm sick and tired of politicians who oppose sensible development of our resources, making us dependent on foreign oil; telling me to 'keep my tires inflated' when we have the technology to provide safe domestic energy sources more than adequate to meet our needs.

I'm sick and tired of being thwarted at every effort to interject faith and values... and VIRTUE into our national dialogue. These are the foundations necessary for a libertarian society, yet I'm told I, as a person of faith, must pay for the contraceptives of an unmarried Georgetown University Law student... who after she parties and passes the bar will earn in one year more than I have in the last nine!

I'm tired of seeing faith excluded in our MILITARY. I am tired of top-down strategies that place our young troops in harm's way by placing them in dangerous situations with supposedly 'friendly' Afghans, who shoot them in the back! I'm tired of seeing the blood, toil, sweat and tears of previous generations of Patriots squandered. I am sick and tired.

But I AM NOT GIVING UP! Angus Buchan says: "The condition for a miracle is difficulty, however the condition for a great miracle is not difficulty, but impossibility.” The situation seems impossible, but two of my young friends were a great encouragement to me going into this election. My young colleague from illustrating the Civitas books told all of her friends on Facebook that Ken Cuccinelli had her vote! (Thanks Laney!) Another young friend reminded me to vote (I already had), and I realized that a baton had indeed been passed in the race. The final lap is yet to be run.

So I return humbly to 2 Chronicles 14:7, which reads: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." I return to humble prayer. The race is not finished and I will explore this further in the cover issue of THYME Magazine that will publish on November 21.
