A few days ago I got a call from Ken Cuccinelli’s office. They asked what I was doing in the next month to help elect Mitt Romney and George Allen. I told them that I would be volunteering at the Leesburg Victory Office, and the various other things that I am doing to help elect Romney and Allen. They told me how important it is that we all do all we can to elect Romney and Allen. I couldn’t agree more. Tonight I read this article in the Hampton Roads paper, reporting that Cuccinelli is “all in” for George Allen.
Every month I attend the NOVA Tea Party meeting in Ashburn. Every month I hear them talk about important this election is, we must help elect Romney and Allen to save our country. The Tea Party is working very hard to elect our republican candidates. Last month I heard their leader, John Jaggers, urge everyone to join their local republican committee and do all that they can to elect our republican candidates. Our country may not be able to survive 4 more years of Obama. America will be a shell of what it once was.
Americans for Prosperity, with an office in Leesburg, is working hard to elect Romney and Allen. They KNOW how important it is for the prosperity of country, for our future, to defeat Obama and the democrats. They’re walking the walk daily, and making phone calls to voters daily.
So why am I hearing that some of Ken’s most ardent supporters, some of the most conservative members of local republican committees, and some Tea Party members, are going to help re-elect Obama?? Why am I hearing that they’re sitting out this election, or voting for libertarian Gary Johnson or Virgil Goode?! Why would ANY republican, much less a conservative supporter of Ken Cuccinelli, help elect Obama? Why is any member of any local republican party, or worse, on the state central committee, not working to help elect Romney and Allen? Do they not think that taking back the Senate is important? Or that’s it’s ok if we’re all stuck with 4 more years of Obama? Is it really about a protest vote over a convention rules change? Can they be so silly as to think that their protest vote will ‘punish’ the RPV or RNC and not punish the country, our children and their children, for decades to come? (Assuming that we will EVER be able to get our country back if Obama is re-elected?) Have they forgotten what happened in 1992 when Ross Perot cost George H. W. Bush the election? (What ever happened to crazy Ross Perot and his crazy aunt in the attic?) Do they REALLY want to be responsible for helping to re-elect Obama? I see in this blog post that one of our own in Fairfax is admitting to doing just that while others are making their protest more quietly. No one in Virginia can think that a vote for Gary Johnson (L-New Mexico) or Virgil Goode (D-VA, then I-VA, then R-VA, now?) is anything but a vote for Obama. Do they think we won’t notice that they are helping elect Obama?
Does the executive committee of LCRC think we won’t notice those people on the ex Comm who are doing NOTHING to help elect Romney and Allen? I spoke with one district chair who apparently had not heard that he should help elect Romney, never heard of volunteering for Romney, didn’t know about the victory offices, and had done absolutely nothing to help during this election, (nor has the supervisor he represents). Joining some of those on the ex comm are some of our board of supervisors who seem to feel there is no need for them to do anything to help in this election. They’re busy, doncha you know. We’ll remember that when they run again and expect campaign help.
An excellent blog post on this subject, urging all republicans to stop sitting on your hands, can be found at Nova Town Hall.
To all those ‘republicans’ who are sitting out this election, or staging their own little ‘protest’ vote, SHAME ON YOU. We know who you are, and we won’t forget. My children will suffer because of you and your little protest. We won’t forget that you helped re-elect Obama and helped him to continue bring down America, to make us more like Greece and France and to put our children in more and more debt to China. When you lose your job and can’t find a new one, we’ll be sure to remind you that you helped re-elect Obama. We won’t forget that you were once a republican but decided to help re-elect Obama and ruin our nation. Please don’t show up at Tea Party meetings and republican committee meetings pretending to care about the people of this nation when you won’t get out there and help defeat Obama. I don’t ever want to hear you say that you’re a good republican who cares, because it’s obvious that you don’t. Get out and help, or get the hell out. We don’t need you if you can’t support our candidates at the most crucial time in our nation’s history. And don’t think that we don’t know who you are, and what you’re NOT doing to help elect our candidates. We know exactly who you are, your absence is glaringly obvious. Your little protest vote is not as secret as you may think and we will never let you forget it. Please consider your country and our future, get off your butt, follow Cuccinelli’s lead, and help elect Romney, Allen and Wolf, before it’s too late for all of us.
