Letter: E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor
Our founding fathers created this great nation to be a free and independent land. They broke away from the colonial power of the king so that they could decide for themselves how to raise their children. They did not need the predominant arm of big government intrusion to tell them how to live. Neither do we.
Who stands up for the values of our founding fathers today? Not many of the politicians. They think they are smarter than the founding fathers. Is there even one person that is running for public office that can be trusted to make the liberty and freedom our founders fought for the centerpiece of the political campaign? There is one that I know of and his name is E.W. Jackson.
E.W. Jackson grew up in poverty and climbed his way out of it through hard work and determination. He served three years and was honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps. He earned a law degree from Harvard University. Further, he studied ministry at the Harvard Divinity School. Such dedication to the betterment of his life shows me that he values people and what they can be if given the chance.
Some have tried to demonize him by pointing out that his religious beliefs do not line up with the politically correct worldview. So what? He is not running to be the pastor of your church, temple, synagogue or mosque. E.W. Jackson is running to restore the values of life, liberty and property that were guaranteed us by the Constitution. These rights have slowly been taken away by the rise of bigger-than-necessary government.
We can’t continue to follow in the path of the failed policies of the past. We must move forward.
E.W. Jackson wants to move Virginia forward. Creating jobs by encouraging business development and removing overbearing government regulations is the way to go. That is what E.W. stands for and that is why I am supporting him in November for lieutenant governor.
