Skip to comments.A Letter to Virginia Republicans

Where is the condemnation?
As a member of the Republican Party of Virginias State Central Committee, l am learning that some Republicans resemble chameleons. The Republican Creed of Virginia is ignored. The carrot of power is sought as principle replaces pragmatism. Honesty is not their best policy. Giving or raising money covers a multitude of sins. Is $15,000 enough penitence for Bollings return? Cant we all get along now?
Criticizing a Republicans unethical behavior is shunned, unless condemnation is directed at one more conservative than you. Dont criticize a Republican. When the six point message of our creed is rejected to secure power, there will be no participation in kum ba yah moments around Republican campfires; I cannot just get along.
Hundreds of happy campers, attending Virginia Beachs Big Tent meeting for the first time were purged for power. Eric Cantors Young Guns destroyed years of coalition building. Where did Cantors Fledgling Firearms secure their basic training Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, Amelia Island?
A Freedom of Information Act request for Campbell County email addresses was used to tell employees that Republican extremists would eliminate their jobs if they did not participate in the Republican mass meeting. Sign the loyalty oath; it doesnt matter. Democrats helped eliminate convention delegates, including the candidate seeking chairmanship of the 5th District and a House of Delegates member. Parliamentarian for the evenings festivities was Mike Thomas, Vice Chair of the State Central Committee, Mr. Slating 101, and one of Cantors Big Three.
Cantor disenfranchised voters, promoted divisiveness Virginia Congressional districts, and violated the principles that define Virginias GOP. Where is the condemnation from Republican Party leadership, State Central, US Congressmen, Virginia Senators or House of Delegates? Is winning at any cost ever acceptable? Have money and retribution silenced the statesmen and hindered the penman? Why are leaders blind, deaf, and mute to Cantors destruction of our Big Tent message?
Should we ignore the obvious because of Cantors position? No one is that important no one. Cantors behavior mocks leadership. The Virginia Beach and Campbell County tomfooleries ridiculed principled leadership. Cantor is not principled. He needs no power.
My message as State Central Committee member to all Republicans, remove Eric Cantor from office.
Eric Cantor has instigated dissent in Virginia. To every Republican leader in Virginia, condemn Cantors behavior. Places of prestige are not more important than positions of principle. Silence is complicity.
A Cantor defeat on June 10th sends a message that deplorable and divisive behavior, even by the House Republican Majority Leader, is unacceptable. Help make phone calls or knock doors on Saturdays in the 7th. Principled Republicans must win; Cantors Big Tent evictions lose. Anyone who believes otherwise ignores history or worships at the church of R.
Success is fleeting when power and purse trump foundational principles. Principles ultimately prevail over power when principled people remain principled. Long term success is secured when Republicans reject Eric Cantor. The best time to start the appropriate and proper purging is June 10th.

The VA GOP is about as useless as a one-legged clothespin.
The Republican party in VA used ignorance and apathy to let itself lose to McAwful.
Losing to a creep like McAuliffe required more than just ignorance and apathy. A deeply flawed candidate didn't help matters.
“deeply flawed candidate”? Cuccinelli was a deeply flawed candidate?
Guess you didn’t notice all those RINOs who failed to support a good conservative candidate because they didn’t get the nomination for their RINO buddy, like Bill Bolling, Vince Callahan, Tom Davis, etc.
Guess that Republican unity stuff only applies when a RINO is the candidate.
The Virginia Republican Party has a long history of screwing the conservative candidate when one of their elites doesn’t get picked. Goes back to when Ollie North was shafted by John Warner and Marshall Coleman because he dared to challenge them and actually beat them in a vote from the people.
The good news is that McAuliffe is term-limited to four years and the House of Delegates is still strongly conservative.
Oh so you bought the war on women campaign BS. The quality of freepers is going down I see. Thread has been invaded by RINO loving GOPe boot lickers.
I've been a FReeper for some time, thank you, and I don't engage in adolescent name-calling like some of us do.
In any case, you missed my point. Cuccinelli never effectively countered the “war on women” ads by the democrats, and that is the primary basis for my statement that he was a deeply flawed candidate. Enjoy your remaining 3 and a half years of McAuliffe.
“Cuccinelli never effectively countered the war on women ads by the democrats, and that is the primary basis for my statement that he was a deeply flawed candidate.”
Your statement is illogical.
Cuccinelli was a deeply flawed candidate because OTHERS (democrats and RINOs) ran false ads against him having a “war on women”? Some is “flawed” because someone else makes libelous statements about him?
Sorry, but central_va is right - you bought the war on women BS by the barrel. The democrats love “conservatives” like you who so easily fall for their propaganda and distortions.
No doubt you consider Ted Cruz a deeply flawed candidate because democrats and RINOs are saying nasty things about him too.
No; Cuccinelli was a flawed candidate, in large part, because he failed to respond effectively to the false and misleading statements by the Democrats. In fact, for months he didn't respond at all. In politics, you can't let your opponent define you. That's what Cuccinelli allowed the Democrats to do. I seriously doubt that Ted Cruz would allow that to happen to him, but we shall see.
