The fight for our nation’s future has a new focus. In Virginia, right across the river from Barack Obama’s White House. Right now.
If you care about our nation’s direction – if you care about rising taxes, the specter of out-of-control government growth, the public humiliation of business owners, the assaults on marriage, our faith communities, and the right to life, the raw power being handed over to unions and radical interest groups — you don’t have to wait until next year to fight back. You can fight alongside us – the new Virginia Values Voter (VVV) PAC – in political contests we can win now –contests that will shape the national debate in 2010.
The new Virginia Values Voter PAC, founded by some of the most dedicated pro-family leaders in the nation, is ready with a gameplan to win these contests. We want to turn the tide now – and with your help, we can.
Let’s remember. Virginia played a special role in the founding of American liberty. It was the home of Washington and Jefferson, Madison and Mason, Patrick Henry and James Monroe. Ideas that took form here shaped our nation’s understanding of religious liberty and limited government.
Frankly, President Obama and the Democrats in Congress want to hit us so hard we can’t recover. Having won Virginia in the 2008 election, they are moving into this conservative-leaning state with lightning speed. Their nominee for Virginia’s governorship, Creigh Deeds, is just the kind of stealth candidate the Left has preferred all over the nation.
What would a Deeds victory this November mean? Look at his record.
- In 2006 he supported the popular amendment to the Virginia constitution that preserved marriage as the union of one man and one woman but now says his support was a mistake.
- As a state delegate, he voted against parental consent before a minor girl could undergo an abortion
- In the Virginia legislature last year, he compiled a 100% voting record rating from NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia
- This year he was endorsed in the gubernatorial primary by the ultraliberal Washington Post.
You know what happens next. The national Democrats, who are targeting the Virginia legislature for takeover this fall, will portray Deeds as a moderate and pro-family candidates as out of the mainstream. The media won’t tell the voters of Virginia about Deeds’ real record and why national Democrats are backing him to the hilt.
But the Virginia Values Voter PAC will. We can’t afford to let this Washington Post-endorsed liberal do the same thing in the general election.
