ANTHONY RIEDEL to CHALLENGE Congressman WHITTMAN

The Virginia 2013 Bellwether Theme: Republicans Electing Democrats to Make Republicans Pay!

In 2008 the United States of America lost it’s collective mind and elected a Marxist, Socialist, Alinsky-ite for a president.

Last week I posted a rather scathing indictment of the Virginia TEA Party movement in general here and here concerning the aftermath of the Republican Primary in which a former TEA Party leader lost to the more mainstream Republican Candidate. There is no doubt that the TEA Party movement has lost some steam (and relevance) since […]
