Republican State Senators Vote Yes To More Nanny State

While I wouldn’t call it a RINO (Republican In Name Only) watch list, the Virginia State Republican Senators listed below voted in favor of

SB 517 Wireless telecommunications devices; prohibits talking on such device unless in hands-free mode.

On it’s face, the bill seems a reasonable infringement on Virginian’s rights, but like so many of these intrusions on our liberties, this opens the door to far more intrusions aimed at protecting us from ourselves.

We have laws that protect us against reckless and careless drivers. If you are talking on a cell phone and driving erratically, you are subject to being ticketed as it is.

So the question is, does it stop here, or do we go after all other distractions. Radio, talking in the car, smoking, other passengers in the front seat? Once that foot is in our door, it never gets smaller.

I was really shocked that Senator Thomas K. Norment, Jr. introduced the bill! What was he thinking? This highest RINO points do go to Senator Norment for this intrusion.

The others on the watch list are:

Senator Harry Blevins
Senator Frederick M. Quayle
Senator Walter A. Stosch (We are shocked!)
Senator Richard H. Stuart
Senator Jill Holtzman Vogel

Our freedom and liberty are under attack in Washington and in Richmond by Democrats marching us down the road to socialism.

This dirty half dozen appear to be in partial lock step with them. If we wanted less liberty we would not have put such a strong majority of Republicans in the House of Delegates. Senate elections will be here soon enough, and we will not forget who took our freedoms. Does accountability mean anything to you?

The House seems to have a much better grasp on why our elected officials are not our Nannies. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
