All of the liberal media in the District, and in the nation for that matter, want to make sure you know that Congressman Goodlatte’s son, Bobby, decided to support Ben Cline’s Democratic opponent and asked his friends in San Francisco, the city where he now lives, to donate as much money as they legally can. That’s what happens when you move to the “left coast” and fall prey to liberal ideology.
And other prominent families in this election cycle have shown their differing political preferences. Levi Sanders is running for Congress in the 1stDistrict in New Hampshire, but his father Bernie is not supporting him even though he has supported many other candidates. And former Michigan Democratic Congressman John Conyers, who resigned last year due to a sexual harassment scandal, wanted his son John, III, to replace him. But the former Congressman’s great nephew, Ian, also ran and complained that John, III, didn’t collect enough signatures. In the end, John, III, never got on the ballot, and Ian Conyers lost out in a crowded primary.
But Michigan and New Hampshire are not our current concern. Our focus is on the Sixth District. You can be sure that the Democrats will try to score political points with the news unless we take a proactive stance. This means that we need to ask voters if they want to elect a woman who is beholden to San Francisco liberals who live in Nancy Pelosi’s district or to elect a man who answers only to people from the district he will represent. You can tell everyone you know that Ben Cline will never sell out to left coast Democrats, Nancy Pelosi, or anyone else who opposes the values and principles of the conservative citizens of the Sixth Congressional District of VIRGINIA. Remind them that this is VIRGINIA, not bankrupt and poorly governed California.
And then you can ask them if they think Democrats are smarter than a four-year-old. However they answer, refer them to the new study published by the “Association for Psychological Science.” In the study the researchers confirmed something that we conservatives have known for a long time. “Our findings demonstrate that from early in life, children both hold and enforce a normative expectation that individuals are intrinsically obligated to contribute to the common good.” In other words, even a four-year-old knows that there are no “free rides” in life and that everyone must contribute to the well being of the community.
Let’s focus on the races we have to win by planning our work, but more importantly doing our work. You might not have much time to give, but if you contact even five people, you might have made a five vote difference. Often, people will vote for a particular candidate for no other reason than that someone asked them to do so.
Everyone doing what they can is the key to getting Ben and Corey elected. And even if you don’t do any “official” campaigning, you can carry some literature in your purse or pocket. Then at appropriate times, bring up the topic of the election and hand a piece of literature to the person with whom you are speaking. The literature is important because it helps the voter remember whom they promised you they would support. A lot of people don’t stay as involved as we do so we need to help them remember the important things.
Let’s all do our part, spite the Dems, and elect a good, conservative Congressman from the Sixth and a good, pro-Trump Senator from Virginia.

P.S. While then candidate Trump was campaigning in 2016, he promised that the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) would reach 4.0% during his presidency. Of course the nay-sayers declared that to be impossible. So now that the GDP has hit 4.1% in the second quarter, those same so-called “experts” claim it is unsustainable. And the Dow Jones average has risen 5000 points since President Trump’s inauguration. Since the negative Democrats have said, in effect, that they don’t know how to improve the economy, we need to make sure that they don’t get back in control of it.
