Make Your Move

To my friends at the RPV Network and for those that are not yet my friends. The Outreach movement is taking on a life of its own. Besides our own group, there is a group forming in Texas, and other groups are coming to life as we speak in Colorado, Ohio, Florida, and Arizona. My idea is to expand the outreach program for the whole nation. Many people may be opposed to an Outreach strategy for some reason; they may think that we don’t need it or maybe that the outreach is something bad (there… Continue

Constitutional Convention NOT for Virginia

Fellow Conservatives,

There is a movement across America to call a Constitutional Convention. Many states have opted to do this and some have rescinded their yes vote realizing the impact a Con Con would cause. However, under Article V of the Constitutional, there is no provision for a rescinded vote; so the vote stands. There are currently 32 of the 34 states needed to call a convention.

Virginia is now on the block with Senate joint resolution #315, the bill from Hanger… Continue

Look Stuff Up And Become A Better Republican

Again, I bring you attention to the live Virginia General Assembly “doings” that will resume tomorrow. The key to turning Virginia “RED” again lies in this body and that of your own local government. Forget the national scene. You’ll just get a “bad stomach”.

Concentrate on how you can help capture a solid majority in the General Assembly and your own local government in those cities and counties that have a reasonable chance come November. It’s the way forward.

Please… Continue

A More Competitive Virginia - Lower taxes, cost & higher performance

Virginia State and Local Government needs to get out of competition with Commerce, Charity and the Individual's Rights and Responsabilities and reassume their oversight obligation to be an honest broker in order to remain competitive.

To Be Or Not To Be

Instead of blowing hot air at one another about “degrees” of what is or makes a “good” Republican, or who is inclusive or who isn’t, or who should be or shouldn’t be, or how far to the center or to the left or to the right the “elephant” should lean, why don’t you take the time to read and study the 2008 Republican Platform. Find out what you support and what you don’t support and then work within our Party to change it to your liking. If you can’t improve on it, then, within your abilities,… Continue
