Virginia 7th District’s Three Choices – Yea, Nay or Abstain

The choices in Virginia’s 7th District come down to three: Yea, Nay or Abstain.

The question we must answer is ‘Do we want to roll back the left wing waste and return to fiscal conservatism, or continue with more debt, high unemployment and a continued transformation into a Socialist Nanny state‘.

If your answer to the above question is yea, then Eric Cantor is the only candidate with both the ability and the will to return sanity to the country. Cantor is the only candidate that will listen to the people and vote as we wish him to vote. When the prevailing wisdom was ‘Republicans need to move to the center’ we asked Cantor to support this position we now know was wrong.

When we told Cantor we wanted to reverse direction and move right, he not only voted to stop Obama and the Democrats, he managed to do his job as minority whip and convince the entire Republican membership in the House to do likewise. Without Cantor’s hard work, we would be looking at far more damage done.

If you think America can never have too much debt or welfare, and that it is the job of government to confiscate the hard earned fruits of another person’s labor and redistribute this wealth, and if jobs and the future of this country are not important to you, then your vote is nay, and Rick Waugh is the candidate of more of the same recession / depression Obama advocates.

If you decide to vote for the third candidate in the race, Floyd Bayne, this is the electoral equivalent of abstain. Present, but not willing to participate in fixing the country. You might be under the illusion that voting for Bayne is somehow a viable choice, but when you look at the millions of jobs his Health Care plan will cost America you begin to understand. Bayne uses the right platitudes, the bumper sticker slogans about the Constitution, but he is absolutely clueless on how he will implement any of his ideas.

Bayne is expected to come in a distant third place with votes in the low single digits, so any vote for Bayne is a useless exercise in self disenfranchisement.

It would be interesting to see Eric Cantor debate an opponent sometime. Perhaps in 2012 a real opponent will emerge to make a debate an actually interesting intellectual and politically relevant experience. The two candidates opposing Cantor this time are not serious candidates. Waugh, the Democrat, sees this as an opportunity to make money, and is paying himself to campaign. Bayne has only amassed a few thousand dollars and paying himself is out of the question with such a lack of interest and backing.

This is not a job for pretenders. Nay and Abstain are not viable choices and Congressman Cantor will become Majority Leader when the votes are counted.

    cantor is political scum and voted yes to screw taxpayers with the first bailout, when bush was still president. the writer of this article is correct about waugh– like obama, he wants to spread the wealth. the best choice is floyd bayne.

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