Albert Pollard Has History of Voting for Big Government
February 23, 2010

Dear Editor,

Did it surprise you that Del. Al Pollard voted AGAINST the Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act which sends a loud message to Washington that Virginians will fight to remain a state of self-directing citizens and not docile, powerless serfs? Well, it didn’t surprise me at all. Let me explain.

Mr. Pollard has a long history of voting for big government, big taxes (voted for the largest tax increase in Virginia history) and increasing government control. Increasing taxes annoys me immensely, particularly when there’s very little talk of cutting wastes, but when my delegate votes to entirely usurp my parental authority, I believe I cannot trust him to protect my rights to any degree, whatsoever.

Mr. Pollard voted against parental consent for minors taking the highly toxic RU-486 abortion pill. His vote completely usurps the role of parents being the moral guide in their child’s life. He voted against the role of parents teaching their child that there is a consequence to every decision she makes. He voted against parents having the opportunity to even pray with their child about such a decision. He voted against parents consenting that their child can take a toxic chemical concoction which has caused death to both minors and adults who have taken it.

When he followed party line on the aforementioned bill, he showed everyone the degree to which our country is infected with “big government can solve your problems” mentality. Isn’t it time for the 99th district to be represented by someone who will say no to big government and yes to individual freedom? Isn’t it time to have a delegate who not only stands up for fish, but for faith, freedom and family too?
