Voter news alert

SoVaNow.com / October 30, 2013


Dear Viewpoint,

This is a news alert for eligible voters in Virginia. Christmas will arrive Dec. 25 and our state Election Day arrives Nov. 5.

There is a combined significance of these two dates. If we continue to elect liberal-minded persons to public office, we risk losing our Christian Liberty to acknowledge Christmas, even Easter, as holy times of devoted worship.

Liberal-minded candidates come to us from all political party affiliations, but the so-called Progressives, who are well funded from the anti-God sources, present the most danger to our Liberty. They have a platform mission in the Democrat Party to transform all things American: culture, tradition and even history. Hillary Clinton recently remarked at a “certain Virginia political event-supporting candidate Terry McAuliffe” that they (Democrats) were marching forward with this movement to transform America, calling this movement “Our Progressive Experiment.”

Thankfully, Virginia’s Republican candidates for its high offices of governance — Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain — are not Progressives. They are experienced God-fearing men who will bring their proven leadership abilities to protect and defend the Liberty of every Virginian, thus creating an environment for economic growth and good fortune. And, they are defenders of the Constitution of the United States of America.

We endorse these candidates with High hope.
