A Republic, if you can keep it. Ken Davis

The people of this country, taking the attitude of “I am not interested in politics”, violate their right to self governance. It is so easy to ask why does our government spends more than it makes and blame others for this spending. However, our government is a Republic that represents the will of the people through elected Representatives. Those of you who have no interest in politics, do not involve yourselves in simple participation by even writing or calling Representatives, do not deserve the right to complain. Our country is based on participation of a free people in the determination of their paths. It is based on involvement of the people to correct the wrong done by the elected Representatives […] more

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TEA PARTY SUPPORTS BRAT DECISION CALLS FOR SAME FROM VA REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP Henrico County, Virginia, January 5th, 2014 The Henrico County TEA Party strongly supports 7th District Representative Dave Brat’s opposition to John Boehner as the returning Speaker of the House in tomorrow’s vote and challenges the rest of the Virginia Republican Delegation to do the same. ­­­­­­ “In recent days and weeks, I have given careful consideration as to how I would cast my vote for Speaker of the House. I do not cast this vote as an individual, but on behalf of the citizens of Virginia’s Seventh District who sent me to Washington to act as their representative. While I like Speaker Boehner personally, he […] more

Virginia School Board Association wants to adopt Common Core

From the Virginia Free Citizen. November 19, 2014 Do they not know that states that have it are trying to get out of it? by Celeste Busby Believe it or not, the Virginia School Board Association (VSBA) is encouraging the Virginia Board of Education (VBOE) to adopt Common Core.   Have they not paid any attention to the abundance of states that are trying to get out of Common Core? Have they not checked out the complaints from other states like New York where only 33 percent of students passed the end-of-year tests, or like Montgomery County, Maryland where Algebra students and their families had to cancel vacation plans so that that the 80 percent of students that failed algebra could […] more

7th District Assembly

United We Win

On Saturday, July 26th, 26 Conservative, Liberty and Republican Leaders in the 7th District met in the Community Center at The Bass Pro Shop in Ashland. At first islands unto themselves, but then a dialog began and the walls started to come tumbling down. In the end, the beginnings of unity and coalition started to develop. Below you will find a summary of the events that day.

 

1st 7th District Assembly Meeting

A Supporters Perspective on Dr. David Brat – Candidate for U.S. Congress

Dave Brat

Below you will find one supporters perspective and research of the upcoming 7th District race for U.S. Congress and the 2 candidates running for it. She has done her homework and has links we suggest you take the time to look at. We would like to add a few more that have come in to help in your educated decision. One final thought, there is NO Democrat running for this office, so whoever wins the Primary will be our next Congressman. There is no chance of losing a Congressional seat to a Democrat as some have been led to believe. This Primary is probably one of the most important ones in VA history!

On to the Letter!

Good afternoon!

I don’t know how much you may already know about Dave Brat, the candidate who is challenging Eric Cantor in the upcoming 7th District Republican Primary on Tuesday, June 10th.    I have had the opportunity to meet Dr. Brat and hear his message upholding the Republican Creed and advocating for genuine conservative solutions in Washington.  I believe that, given his background, and his perspective, he would more effectively promote the interests of the 7th District, and the long-term interests of our nation, than Eric Cantor, especially given Mr. Cantor’s record in recent years.  I believe Dr. Brat is genuinely committed to small government, free-market principles and could provide true, much-needed, conservative leadership, especially regarding the fiscally irresponsible, seemingly endless, federal government spending and dangerous debt position that  threatens to completely collapse our economy and our country.  I encourage you to watch and share the two web videos, one that highlights discrepancies between Eric Cantor’s rhetoric and record, and one that promotes Dave Brat’s plan for the 7th District, and consider the points made in each.
 
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
 
 
More information about Dr. Brat, his background, position on issues, and his plan for the 7th District can be found on his campaign website: www.davebratforcongress.com 
 
As a former supporter of Eric Cantor, I believe he initially did a good job representing the interests of the district and promoting conservative policies and legislation.  However, I have come to believe that, over time, he has lost his way and more and more, has abandoned integrity and the conservative principles of the Republican Party in pursuit of his own political interests.  It seems Mr. Cantor, like so many others, has become part of the “political machine” that has distorted the political process and governance of our country in the name of self-serving, crony politics, which is increasingly doing great harm to our nation.  So many of Mr. Cantor’s votes, behind-the-scenes maneuvering, and rhetoric in recent years seem to be calculated, self-serving, political posturing, rather than actions based on a sincere, conservative stance on issues.   In this election cycle, Mr. Cantor has even stooped to completely dishonest, underhanded political tactics to discredit Dr. Brat and manipulate the Virginia Republican Party, state politics, and constituents to his advantage.  (Below is a list of links to articles that provided me with some insight into the questionable and manipulative nature of Mr. Cantor’s actions and his seeming abandonment of principle for politics). 
 
This is an extremely important primary election, at an extremely critical time in our nation’s history, where we face many serious threats and issues on so many fronts.  Poll after poll indicate that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe our country is, and has been, moving in the wrong direction, yet we continue to elect the same people who are responsible for expanding the size and power of government and implementing the very policies and laws that are undermining the Constitution, crippling our economy, weakening our national defense and empowering our enemies, subverting our education system, over-regulating and restricting our freedoms, and, essentially, steadily destroying our nation.  I urge you to look closely into each candidate and consider the destructive direction our nation is being led, and whether Eric Cantor or Dave Brat would be the better representative who would earnestly pursue fiscal responsibility, and small government, conservative solutions in a meaningful way, and provide strong, principled conservative leadership at this critical time. 
 
As always, I share this email in an effort to provide information I have found to be helpful and observations that, I hope, will inspire greater engagement on the part of others who are interested in preserving the nation and the freedom that we so often take for granted.
Thank you!
Nancy”
