Virginia Right BLOG Endorsement: John McGuire III for Delegate in the 56th!

The blog has not endorsed recently very often but Tom and I are in agreement on the GOP candidate (and the general election too!) in the leans Republican 56th HOD district.

No need to complain about an uncontested election in the 56th!  Two Dems v. SIX Republicans!  Wow!  I wish I could cover this primary a bit closer.

But the blog has decided – now there are several great candidates running – heard good things about Graven Craig (and he has a great name for politics, too!) and I am very impressed with George Goodwin – what I saw and heard at the Louisa Tea Party in April


The blog is going with John McGuire, III:  Navy SEAL, came back from a horrible accident to walk and live a decent life again (of course Jesus did the healing part!), staunch conservative, brother of excellent Commonwealth’s Attorney Rusty McGuire, who my Hanover readers will remember for his two runs – Hanover CA and Delegate in the seat won by John Cox and now held by Buddy Fowler – and Rusty moved to Louisa.

We believe McGuire will best represent the citizens in the 56th and that he’ll do ’em proud.  He will listen and will tell it like it is.  John is endorsed by Del. Buddy Fowler!

Vote John McGuire III on June 13 in the 56th.

A Memorial Day Note:  I have it on authority from a unimpeachable source that John McGuire Sr. (grandfather), John McGuire, Jr. (father), the candidate and Navy SEAL John McGuire III, and John the Third’s son, yes you guessed it:  John McGuire, IV had all served or serve in the armed forces of the US.   A great tradition of service.  I thank all four Johns for their service to our nation.

    I hope Mr. McGuire will indeed do us proud. We’ve had so many disappointments in recent decades. Each time, with candidates everywhere, we hope that “this time it’ll be different.” And then it isn’t. Things keep getting worse. I may well vote for McGuire, even though I probably don’t agree with him on health care. By the way, I think that not just God, but probably also many fine caregivers at the VA, helped heal Mr. McGuire. I myself receive VA care and am generally satisfied with its socialized-type medical care—I count myself as damned lucky to have it, and am grateful to my country for it. In most other ways I am to the right. But not on health care. The system we have is broken and inequitable and cannot be fixed with band-aids. Do we really want a country in which only the rich get decent health care?

      John McQuire refuses to answer questions like this over and over again. Maybe, as someone who only moved into this district because he thought there would be an easy race, he is just not prepared to do anything but promise “good ideas.”

      Maybe he will fight for quality healthcare for all people, maybe he will carve out veterans as a protected class as he contributes to the worsening problem of uninsured folks. We don’t know because he has no positions on the record that come close to a specific policy.

      Melissa Dart will fight for access to affordable healthcare. Her campaign is about her desire to help other people live great lives. John McGuire’s service to this country should never be forgotten. We owe veterans more than gratitude, but until he demonstrates a basic understanding of the needs of this community, he should not get a free pass. For all the balking from the right about lazy people expecting things without putting any effort in, it seems like John McQuire should have to work for your vote. Melissa Dart is doing this every single day.

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