As we approach November, exhausted by breach after breach of our nations constitutional integrity, frustrated by the continuous creep of despotic theater emanating from the bowels of the Democrat Establishment, and shocked by the gutlessness of an impotent and passionless Republican Party, what are we to think and feel? Are we to look forward to the sweeping away of a Democrat Senate? Are we to look forward to the coronation of a McConnell-Controlled Senate? Are we really voting for Roberts, Cochran, and Gillespie?

Do we expect to see the push for amnesty end in 2015 under Boehner and McConnell? Do we expect to see an end to debt increases under a Republican Congress? Do we expect to see Obamacare Repealed in 2015? Do we expect to see the Bureaucracy halted, disciplined, and reformed? Is there a glimmer of courage on the horizon?

I don’t think so.

When I talk with conservatives, constitutionalists, and libertarians about their priorities and concerns, I am not hearing anything close to the priorities and concerns espoused by men like Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner. So what are we doing as a party? Are we moving forward, backward, or sideways?

Will we see movement on real investigations into Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS targeting of Republican groups, the possible arming of ISIS terrorists in Syria, and a manufactured crisis on our Southern border?

So I want to ask you, Virginia, what are you hoping for in 2015? What do you think will happen? What do you want to happen? And most importantly, do you believe that this Republican Party is capable of dealing with the challenges facing America, our fiscal health, and the integrity of our future as a Constitutional Republic?

As far as I’m concerned, the only bright light in this fog of Republican failure is the candidacy, campaign, and grassroots support of Dr. Dave Brat; but I’m looking for optimism, hope, and a plan of action. I’m looking to you Virginia.

    “The fact that those in Virginia government refuse to adopt the Federal ethics/gift standards is all one needs to know about what Virginia is for, and it ain’t lovers.

    Virginia Government is a defiant, corrupt bunch of hoodlums. In bed with any corporate, anti-labor, pro-labor, lobbyist, consultant, or PR type who can write a check that doesn’t bounce.

    The real talent with lobbying lies with those who can purchase legislation or favors for a client, yet, nobody can prove that it ever happened. Sound familiar?

    Just check out HB 532 from the 2010 Virginia GA session. A lobbying masterpiece. Stealth like, efficient, and screw the consumer all in one package. How many bills do you see these days that get unanimous support from both parties? This one did!

    How does HB 532 benefit Virginia consumers? How many companies had the $100 million dollars required net worth? Hint, the same number of countries that do not have Universal HealthCare. Who is/are/ the company/companies who had the $100 million net worth?

    Surely HB 532 should be voted into the lobbyist hall of fame! Is a former Governor on trial, or is he really just a front man for the real shall we say “Boss” who lurks downtown?”

    On another note, who was it who last week called for substantial spending cuts (12%) in the current McDonnell/Norment/Howell recently passed budget with its near $11 Billion increase over the last budget?

    Was it a Republican? Was it Batman or Robin? Perhaps Wonder Woman? Spider-Man? Nope. Why it was Democrat/businessman Gov. McAuliffe, stepping up to the plate once again to “reel” in the Republican spending follies. Once again a Democrat has to come in and clean up after the a Republicans. No surprise here.

    Say it ain’t so!

    From my vantage point here in central VA, the Gillespie campaign resembles a glass half empty of very warm beer—and most folks I know don’t like warm beer! The Gillespie campaign and message has no energy, exhibits no vibrancy, awakens no excitment, and stirs no conservative blood. In so many ways the Gillespie campaign reminds me of the George Allen campaign fiasco and we all know what happened to poor old George—you know— the pollitical retread with a lousy voting record who thought he was ENTITLED to another lackluster term because he was one of the GOP ELITES—instead he reminded many of us of a deer caught in the headlights on route 609 late in the evening during rutting season! That, I am afraid, is what plagues Mr. Gillespie who sees himself as another ENTITLED GOP ELITE and in the time between now and November 4, I detect no excitment among the electorate–in fact–there is real doubt he can pull his political bus out of the political ditch in time to sputter cross the finish line to win. After all–who likes warm beer–except the Brits?

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