A history lesson is in order

To the Editor:

Can anyone name a dictator that came to power without disarming the people first? No? That’s because people who are armed cannot be enslaved.

• Vladimir Lenin stated that the best way to gain power over the people is to gain control of their health care.

• The Founding Fathers believed that freedom would not long survive in America if people turned away from God.

So what is going on today? We have an administration in Washington determined to ban gun ownership in defiance of the Second Amendment, a president who adamantly pushed government controlled health care and a movement to erase any mention of God from the national consciousness.

On Nov. 5, Virginians will have a choice to make. On the one hand a liberal Democrat Terry McAuliffe who opposes gun ownership and supports the expansion of government-controlled health care. On the other hand, a conservative Republican, Ken Cuccinelli, who defends gun ownership and the first attorney general to sue the government over Obamacare.

The choice is obvious. The handwriting is on the wall and time is running out for America, the land of the free.

    The people of the area would be hilarious if this were a parody of life. Unfortunately, these are the thoughts of too many people around here. If anyone thinks Cuccinelli is any better than McAulliffe they simply will approve of anything as long as it is followed by an (R). Same for the (D) hardliners. If you have latched onto any political party you have already sold your individual thought. Bottoms up, the koolaid is free flowing.

    Please don’t stay home believing there is no difference between the two candidates for governor. If you are for big government and the steady eroding of your constitutional rights and for killing babies and entitlements including obamacare then vote for Slick Terry. If you are for individual freedoms and a government by the people then vote for Ken. Just remember that your children and grandchildren are depending on you to do the right thing.

    Indeed, it does seem to be that simple, folks. Please do not be lazy on election day this year. Will your children have to ask you why you failed to do your simple civic duty and prevent a leftist to be our Governor and other top elcted officials? The results will be long-lasting it appears. If we lose our self-defense weapons like northern cities have, chaos will reign here as well.
