Eddie Whitlock on Trump

Edward S. Whitlock, III is a lawyer colleague – a good acquaintance (if you are a business and have debts to collect – try Eddie) and I respect and admire him very much he is the author of the Whitlock Test!  From his state senate website:

Eddie Whitlock believes state government can do more to rein in unnecessary spending. As your next Senator, he will push for budgets that limit spending to core services. He will also insist on greater legislative oversight of the budget to ensure that every program funded in the budget is reviewed regularly to ensure it meets the following criteria: Is the program still needed? Is the program successful? Does the program provide a service that is unavailable from the private sector for less money or impractical for the private sector to provide? If the program does not meet all three criteria, Eddie will look to cut funding for the program and return the revenue to Virginia taxpayers.

I told Eddie if I ran for delegate or whatever I was stealing it but giving him credit!

Eddie is also the chair of the Henrico GOP.  Here is what he wrote on his FB page about Donald Trump:

I had the great privilege last night to have a personal meeting with Donald J. Trump before a small roundtable meeting, which was prior to the Richmond Rally. I had a minute or so to speak with him while our picture was being taken (picture to be received and posted soon). I was extremely impressed – he was focused and engaging, friendly and personable. I was introduced to Mr. Trump as the Chairman of the Henrico County Republican Party. He immediately asked me how things looked in Henrico, and as I explained, very briefly, my thoughts. He asked me: what issue would make the difference? He also asked me about the Governor’s actions regarding restoration of rights. When I explained my opinion as an attorney, he wanted to ask even more questions about the legal analysis of the case. He was equally engaging with our small group about overall election issues – he asked us questions, listened and responded – no stump speech. Clearly Donald Trump is not your average candidate. It is easy to see how he has been so successful in building businesses, and easy to see how he can be an effective and successful President. Having met the man, I am a true believer that Donald Trump will make America great again!

Of course I am jealous!  He got to meet Donald Trump.  (Of course my envy is tempered by the fact I met my political beau ideal – former Cong. Ron Paul!)  I do not agree with some things Trump says but there will be a tough choice for many people this November.  In the meantime, words to ponder…

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