Letter: Cuccinelli for governor
The Commonwealth of Virginia is where America began laying the foundation for the only successful democratic republic in the world. Think for a moment what this means, because it is powerful, and then start feeling some pride in what was accomplished. Then ask yourself, "What can I do that supports and respects this gift of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?"
Being Governor of Virginia is a position of respect that requires the ability to lead, based on experience, education and knowledge of our laws and our history. With this background, the governor can work with our representatives to provide more job opportunities that will fit all of those who want to find work. The Democratic candidate, Mr. McAuliffe, has none of the qualifications to be governor because most of his life has been spent making deals, often the "you scratch my back, I scratch yours" kind and there are more questions than answers as to whose back was being scratched and why.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, despite efforts to smear his reputation by saying he has broken the law, has not broken any laws and those who accuse him are either wrong due to lack of knowledge or simply repeating the lie. If you make the time to learn Mr. McAuliffe’s history you will find how deep he is in the fuzzy deal making in D.C. His back was covered by friends such as the Clintons and other leading Democrats, and it make some of us curious as to his current financial support.
Here are our choices—Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli or Mr. Terry McAuliffe. Our Attorney General has the qualifications we need, plus the courage to stand up for his personal beliefs and values at a time when those traditions are often mocked. But he respects the rights of those who disagree and would not mock them for doing so. Virginia has always made room for God and, in doing that, has prospered; but has also made room for those who don’t believe, and that is how it should be.
When listening to many Democrats today, God isn’t welcome. And, if you need evidence of this sad fact, just remember their last convention. I am not of the same faith as Attorney General Cuccinelli, but I trust him to represent Virginia. He will not try to make us into another California or New York, where the already rich become richer and more powerful, the number of people requesting state and federal aid grows larger, and the rest are required to pay more taxes to satisfy their needs. I don’t believe this is what Virginians need or want.
