Readers of this blog are familiar with our opinion of “former Republican” Stalinist yankee lawn gnome and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg (Summary: it ain’t good.) He’s spending close to $2 million trying to defeat Ken Cuccinelli, the pro-liberty, pro-gun, RLCVA-endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate this year, due to his having the audacity to stand against the Gnome’s plans to eventually disarm us all. That’s bad enough. But to make matters worse, now, he’s pouring in over $1 million to defeat pro-liberty, pro-gun, RLCVA-endorsed Republican attorney general candidate Mark Obenshain, for the same reasons.
I have had more than enough of this clown interfering in Virginia politics. From trying to ban large size sugary beverages to his ceaseless assault on our Second Amendment-guaranteed liberties, the Gnome is wrong on practically every single public policy issue of any consequence. It’s bad enough that he may succeed in making Terry McAuliffe, a contemptible human being if ever there was one, the next governor of the Old Dominion, but he’s now trying to help Mark Herring, a standard issue anti-gun Democrat state senator, come from behind to defeat Obenshain. Folks, I’ve had occasion to meet Mark Obenshain a bunch of times during the campaign. We don’t agree on every single thing, just as I don’t with Ken Cuccinelli, Rand Paul or anyone else. That said, he’s honest, forthright, down to earth, and actually listens when you talk with him. He understands the value of personal liberty, and that it’s actually possible to respect it while simultaneously doing the job of enforcing the law. He knows who he is, what he believes, and why he believes it, and is actually dedicated to public service in the finest traditions of our Commonwealth. He’s also the only statewide candidate of the seven out there to have run a relentlessly positive, upbeat, issues-based campaign. He’s actually focused on why he wants to be Attorney General and what he’ll do with the job when he gets it.
We cannot simply stand by and permit anti-liberty out-of-state influences like the Gnome to have this kind of impact unopposed. To that end, I’ll just share the image from Mark’s campaign that came out earlier today (click on it) and you’ll know what to do:
And get out on Tuesday, November 5th, and VOTE VOTE VOTE for Mark Obenshain… and Ken Cuccinelli. Talk to everyone you know who’s undecided. Convince them, and do what you can to make sure THEY get out to support Ken and Mark.
And as for Michael Bloomberg, he needs to get lost and stay there, permanently. People like him have made places like NYC and most of the Northeast into what it is today. Let’s not allow them to do the same to Virginia.
