Skip to comments.email from Virginia Organizing, 2/14 rally in Richmond targets Gen Assembly (BARF ALERT)
Posted on 02/08/2012 7:51:22 AM PST by Gopher Broke
Our hearts have been repeatedly broken by the Virginia General Assembly this year.
We've been lied to: "We'll work on jobs and education, we swear!"
We've been cheated on: "I am just going out with my corporate lobbyist friends tonight, it's really nothing!"
We can't take another excuse: "These voter ID bills are just to fight 'voter fraud' and have nothing to do with the election."
Virginians voted for legislators who promised to put people back to work, get the economy moving, and make our state the best place for a child to receive an education. Instead of focusing on the issues that affect Virginia's working families, the Virginia General Assembly has focused on far-flung legislation like lifting the one gun per month limit, fetal personhood, drug testing welfare recipients and much more.
We are outraged that Virginias General Assembly refuses to stand up for the most vulnerable Virginians, and were appalled that the Assembly has been spent time pursuing a conservative social agenda, attacking voting rights and protecting tax loopholes for the wealthy. These policies dont represent the kind of Virginia we believe in.
We believe in a Commonwealth that stands for fairness and justice.
On Tuesday, February 14 join us in Richmond as we tell our legislators that they've broken our hearts.
10:00am: Meet inside the General Assembly
10:45am: Deliver broken heart chocolate boxes to legislators
11:30am: Line the walk from the General Assembly to the Capitol with broken hearts signs stating the legislature's misplaced priorities
12:30pm: Pack the balcony, watch the action.
If youd like to attend, please register HERE. Well be in touch with more details, including carpool information, after we receive your registration.

The way to get the economy moving is for government to get the hell out of the way!
Hey Goph...thanks for this.
Just forwarded it to my delegate in Richmond as a heads up...he’s a conservative pubbie who just won election...great guy.
They want the Dead and Illegals to keep voting and saying it's their rights. They want to increase the taxes on the wealthy job creators and drive them right out of the state.
I went to their website, and saw a prominent picture bragging about Health Care (Socialized of course) for America. So they are promoting ObamaCare.
They are probably rejoicing that Catholics are being forced to participate in Birth Control, Sterilizations and Abortions (through Abortofaceints).
IE: This is probably an Progressive Organization dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and for the imposition of a Socialist or Communistic reign.
