Getting ready for November 8th in Goochland County

The election is almost here !

Besides straightening up, (or adding) to your Dave Brat and Trump signs on display, the only thing left is to study the ballot overall ahead of time – especially the proposed Constitutional Amendments on the ballot.

Get to your polling place as early as possible.  There will be lines.  Make sure you have a valid photo ID and know where your polling place is.

Knowing what you’ll be voting on will help move things along quickly

It’s been a while, but not too long ago, when I went to vote I didn’t always have a full grasp or awareness of what was on the ballot.  I found the sample ballot to be especially helpful in these cases.  But even more helpful was if there was a knowledgeable and friendly someone at the polls that could put it in a nutshell.

Let’s all be that knowledgeable person this year

First, take a look at the sample ballot pre-filled out from the Goochland County Republican Committee.


For our tour of the ballot, we’ll start at the bottom right and move backwards until we come to the top.


Mike Caudill for Commonwealths attorney – to complete the unexpired term of Claiborne Stokes whose gone on to be a Judge.  Mike is the only and best excellent choice.


Moving up on the right side of the ballot – Constitutional Amendments! 


Ballot Question 2: Shall the Constitution of Virginia be amended to allow the General Assembly to provide an option to the localities to exempt from taxation the real property of the surviving spouse of any law-enforcement officer, firefighter, search and rescue personnel, or emergency medical services personnel who was killed in the line of duty, where the surviving spouse occupies the real property as his or her principal place of residence and has not remarried?

Nutshell rephrase – Should the surviving spouses of police and other emergency personal who die in the line of duty, become exempt from real estate property taxes?

There already is such a provision for the surviving spouses of military personal, but should we add more of this to the Va. State constitution? 

We think maybe not.  Perhaps it should remain as it already is.  Some don’t agree. That’s OK.
What matters is that you understand the issue and have formed your own opinion.
There is a survey we invite you to respond to about this – Please take the survey


Moving up to the top right, the last constitutional amendment question.


Ballot Question 1: Should Article I of the Constitution of Virginia be amended to prohibit any agreement or combination between an employer and a labor union or labor organization whereby (i) nonmembers of the union or organization are denied the right to work for the employer, (ii) membership to the union or organization is made a condition of employment or continuation of employment by such employer, or (iii) the union or organization acquires an employment monopoly in any such enterprise?

Nutshell rephrase – Do you want unions to be constitutionally prevented from interfering with Virginia staying a “Right to Work State”?

Of course you do.  It’s already a law, but laws can be changed.  It’s better to make this one harder to change.  Let’s put it in the constitution!
No doubt on this one.  Mark it a big fat (stay in the circle!) YES


Now we’re at the bottom left as we work backwards through the ballot…..


7th District House of Representatives? Congress?  Dave Brat of course.  Dave is us.  We are Dave. It’s really our government if Dave’s in office.  If Dave is in office – WE ARE IN OFFICE!


Now – Drum Roll…..Here we are – the spot on ballot that brings em all out!  Even dead people! People that don’t even legally live in this country and people who somehow have the ability to be different people at the same time!  And even people who somehow live simultaneously in many different states at the same time!  Bus loads of them!  It’s incredible!  It’s unbelievable! Believe me!  (Trump Voice)

You simply have to show up.  Goochland is already near and seems set to pass the 10% mark of early registered voters.  We typically get very very high voter turnout – this year could and should be among the highest.  In Goochland, I must say that we have the most top notch registrar in the Universe.  Based on some national news reports, other places maybe not so much.

So, the choice ? There’s only one team of men that God has allowed to be in the position at this point in history to Make America Great Again.  One team of regular guys (especially Donald!), who have nothing to prove and everything to accomplish.  Just one set of Administrative populist leaders who “get it” and will get it done / get it fixed:

  • Political Correctness set back on its idiotic snowflake heels – Check
  • Smug elitist Media put in their place – Check
  • Obama care repealed and replaced –Check
  • Illegal immigration honestly dealt with- Check
  • Untouchable privileged elitist (crooked) politicians jailed- Check
  • Supreme court appointees who will strengthen our Republic – Check
  • 2nd Amendment preservation – Check
  • Preserve and re-assert Religious Freedom – Check
  • No longer look away and rationalize the murder of the unborn – Check
  • Corruption and corrupt oligarchies inside the beltway broken- Check
  • REAL Business savvy – Check
  • Set the tone for common sense taxation and renewed American manufacturing – Check
  • The appointment of an attorney general who will prosecute-prosecute-prosecute the real criminals and resume the Holy Land Foundation TrialCheck
  • DEFEAT ISLAMIC TERRORISM – Check

And there’s many more.

Your ballot choice for President and Vice President is Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence.

It’s come down to this – Everything on the list above and more will likely be gone forever or otherwise severely damaged for many, many years if, November 9th has the spoken phrase:

President Hillary Clinton!?

Did I really just discover my country and my American heritage late in life so I could simply get the full impact of loosing it?  Did too many of us sleep too long?
Did scores of Great Patriots make the ultimate sacrifice before and during my time so that parasitic progressive leftists could hatefully destroy it?

instead,

Vote it to be so – Let it be – Make it be – Pray it be

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

See you all November 8th!
