Come out and help "Paint the 10th Red" on 10/16/2010 when the 10th Congressional District annual OKTOBERFEST will really kick the campaign into high gear. It's a chance in the last important weeks before the November 2nd election to come out in large numbers and support Congressman Frank Wolf, the entire 10th District, and to demonstrate that we will stand and fight for liberty, freedom, and our Constitutional values.

Your reservations will include special wine tasting (and soft drinks and water), yummy food, live patriotic and country music, and good ol' fashioned politics. The 10th District Oktoberfest will be held on:

Saturday, October 16th from 2-5 pm at:
Meadow Pavilion - Tarara Winery
13648 Tarara Lane
Leesburg, VA 20176

Congratulations to 10th District Republican Committee Chairman Howie Lind on his Victory! Now it is time for the 10th to pull together and work to send Frank Wolf back to Congress for another term.

For those of you who live near or know folks in the 11th, Gerry Connolly is just aching for early retirement!! We will know who the 11th's nominee will be after tomorrow's primary, please support him, also, as Frank can use help in the fight on the Hill for our liberty, rights and freedom.

I didn't miss anything. I know the Tenth like the back of my hand.....and running against Wolf will end in defeat. Period.
As Trautz ends his bid for the Republican ticket....I begin to see an even larger number for Wolf if there's a three way vote. I'm still interpreting Trautz' message on his website, but it has "independent" run written all over it.
I've even heard rumblings that you're contemplating stepping in, instead.

1. Not actually my 'blog',
2. yet another personal attack
3. Once again, you miss the point. People are growing less and less concerned about a "thumping of the " other party and more concerned about restoring the Constitution, Honor, and Integrity to our government and political groups.

Most importantly, I believe we need to reform the whole election process. The only reason that people like Wolf stay in office for 3 decades or more is because the politicians have built a corrupt empire that gives incumbents a vast advantage over any opponent. As that advantage then becomes known to others, the intrinsic advantage is expanded by a machine that is built up around the politician. At the end of this process, you have politicians surrounded by lackeys who say the seat is theirs as long as they want it - because they are all connected and reap benefits. At that point, the politicians are no longer being held to account by the people and then they can run rough shod over the Constitution. A couple of years ago, that was Republicans with TARP. Now its Dems with health care. The same issues arise on a smaller scale in the local offices and party machines. So, yes, we desperately need reform!

You also show a fundamental misunderstanding of my intent. This is not about me; it is about reforming the system before our country collapses.

Finally, you once again have shown how the Wolf defenders always throw attacks without ever discussing the issues. You claim that the Alaska Dispatch is a "bold-face liar" without any evidence or even what their motive might be in telling a lie about a Congressman from the other side of the country.

And yes, as you point out Wolf did get up on the floor of the House, shortly before the vote, and gave a very brief statement about how he would vote. As I said, I never questioned how he would vote; my question is what did he DO to stop it. He has a $2 million war chest, but did not spend any of it to motivate people to come out and protest. There are more than half a million voters in his district, all within easy travel distance from the capitol. Had he actually motivated people to come out and protest, perhaps we could have blocked the passage of the bill - but that would assume that he cared more about blocking the bill than he did about keeping his seat by maintaining a low profile on a divisive issue. That is not leadership - it is corruption.

Further, in reading your blog (or what passes as an excuse for one) I found great humor in one particular posting.
In the posting, Loudoun County GOP Chairman Vote.... you actually typed "If you live in Loudoun County and you want to help reform the Republican Party, this is your chance".
As if a 61% thumping of the democrats in Loudoun actually needed reform. That feat was not duplicated anywhere else in Virginia, sherlock.
As Glen Caroline's 72 Hr. Chair, I cannot be prouder of the result, and have to ask you....if you want to "reform" that kind of success, what exactly do you want for the committee. An absolute blowout where the committee gets it's ass handed to it, instead?

You may yet get your wish, in that regard. It remains to be seen exactly what kind of leaders emerge from that Committee. The original members of that 2007-2009 outstanding team still control the membership, despite what the ExCom looks like, so we may still be able to steer the selection process by vote.
You might want to take a humble pill, and apologize to that membership in order to work with them. Their combined strength in bringing the vote in will be required if you actually plan on winning anything. This is one of the top two districts in the State to watch, as of 2009.

I'm sorry that you fell for the opinion of some idiot at the The Alaska Dispatch who is a bold-faced liar.
As for the continued pressure on Congress, I'll be right there in April and again in September. I run a business, and right now it's hard to get away to do much, if I want to continue to eat.
As for Wolf's statement....since you didn't look for it anywhere else, I'll bring it to you.


WOLF STATEMENT ON HEALTH CARE BILL



Washington, D.C. – Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) today made the following statement on the House floor before the vote on H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:



Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks against this flawed health care bill.



I do not question the need for Congress to find a way for the millions of Americans without health insurance to be assured of quality, affordable health care. The majority of my constituents in the 10th District of Virginia have made clear that they want an open and transparent process in which Republicans and Democrats work together to pass responsible health care reform that lowers costs and offers greater access to affordable health care.



They told me that they don’t want more government spending.



They don’t want government-run health care.



They don’t want a plan that hurts America’s seniors, families or small businesses.



What they do want is a plan that fixes what’s broken and keeps what’s working without adding billions of dollars to an already ballooning deficit.



I cannot support today’s bill because it will raise over $500 billion in new taxes during a recession and times of high unemployment. This will especially hit small business employers at a time when the federal government should be assisting in job creation, not raising taxes.



This legislation cuts billions of dollars from Medicare, a program that our seniors rely on.



It requires individuals to purchase health insurance. If you don’t purchase health insurance, the government will fine you a minimum fine of $750, up to the maximum penalty of 2 percent of your income. This provision has drawn the attention of the citizens of Virginia, with the Virginia General Assembly, in a bipartisan vote, becoming the first legislature in the nation to pass legislation opposing this mandate.



This bill mandates billions of dollars in additional Medicaid spending in unfunded mandates for cash-strapped states.



It breaks a promise to members of our nation’s armed services, their families, veterans, and employees, with its failure to protect the military’s TRICARE system -- health care programs provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This means that, under this legislation, unless an individual has TRICARE for Life, additional health insurance would have to be purchased.



Madam Speaker, I am committed to working with my colleagues to pass real health care reform in a cost effective manner. This legislation fails that test.

I'm glad you attended some rallies; I am grateful to everyone who took time away from their lives to try to protect our liberties. I am also happy to point out that three of our VA Congressmen took actions in the past week to encourage the crowds to increase and maintain the pressure on the Dems to stop this bill. Rep. Cantor (VA-7) had “Vote No” in his Capitol building office window. At both the House Call in November and the Code Red rally this weekend, a stream of Congressmen, including Goodlatte (VA-6), gave wonderful speeches to the crowd. Randy Forbes (VA-4) sent out e-mails and tweets to encourage us.
However, I saw no action from Frank Wolf, with the exception of his vote. But voting ‘no’ was the party line and Wolf is a party guy, so I do not give him any credit for this. To the contrary, it is disturbing that he protected Cao in his original vote in favor of the bill; since you have called this a “bold-faced lie”, I am happy to provide the reference article from the Alaska Dispatch for your review:
"So Saturday night, our own Young, with all of his glowering presence, stood next to Cao during the whole vote and worked to protect him and keep the party leaders at bay. It worked. Cao reportedly didn't want to be the deciding vote, but once it was sure to pass, with Young on one side, and another protectorate Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), on the other, Cao was free to be the lone Republican to vote 'yea.'"

Finally, it is not as if I have not heard anything from Wolf recently. I have seen all sorts of statements about the Black Panthers, getting more money for NASA, and government-paid ads telling me how he is supposedly fiscally responsible; but I did not see a single statement from him about the health care bill or in support of the protests – even when it is clear that the People were against it. I believe that is a powerful statement as to his real position on the issue.
Comment by The Bulletproof Monk on March 20, 2010 at 11:19pm
"Oh, that's right, he was next to Rep Cao (R-LA), encouraging him to go ahead and vote for ObamaCare in order to make his left-leaning district happy "

See, that right there is a bold-faced lie. Wolf does NOT support this HealthScare, and you had to fabricate an outright lie to paint him in a negative light. I'm done with you. You're not as honest and righteous as we'd hoped.

I've attended the April 15th and September 12th marches, myself.
