In Waynesboro: A United Conservative Front Destroys Opposition

Posted by Stephen on May 7, 2008

On Tuesday the Republican Party was provided a sound example of what can happen when conservative ideals meet a passionate contingency of volunteers.

It was not only a clean sweep for conservatives in the election for Waynesboro City Council, but an overwhelming and dominant performance to boot. Bruce Allen and Frank Lucente both garnered more than 60% of the vote in their individual campaigns while their closest competitor earned less than 27%, and when added to the uncontested election of Tim Williams, Waynesboro will be led by a strong conservative voice for at least the next four years.

The moral of this story is simple; don’t mess with a motivated conservative who stands in a united front with those that refuse to lose sight of the greater goal which is to promote principles that unite and empower people by operating government as it is intended.

Government is the tool of the people and never shall it be appropriate for an elected official, no matter their makeup or political affiliation, to abuse the power granted by the Constitution, exercised through the people’s civic duty and acknowledged by their simple yet priceless vote.

The powerful supporters who backed the other side of the Waynesboro election could not have foreseen Tuesday’s result, but make no mistake about it, there was more than a mandate delivered by voters…. A message was sent…

The message to the Wayne Theatre Alliance, Bill Hausrath, tax and spend liberals, government expansionists, and those whose vision is wrapped up in a bow of special interests and pet projects, is that real leadership starts with protecting the people and not pilfering from them.

A vision for the community is one that is centered on understanding who the people are you are representing and what their real needs are before you push for luxuries and special projects that fall far behind clean water, storm water protection, safety, education, and the core responsibilities of government.

These are messages found at the core of the conservative belief system. They call our belief in the power of people rhetoric. They call our desire to protect faith, family, and the U.S. Constitution outdated. They say we need to come to some sort of an imaginary center created through illusions of government run programs built on the fantasy that they can cure all that ails you.

They reject our ideas while providing none of their own. They ignore solutions so that they can promote the problem. Doing so, they hope, will make them seem important and significant while establishing a false sense of power that they will use to intimidate the electorate.

They call our belief system, the belief system of the Republican Party, fanatical.

WE call our belief system, the belief system of the Republican Party, OUR creed.

This is a creed that we stand by which is illustrated through actions that we do our best to honor and live by.

For the uninitiated who wish to have something to believe in and be guided by as they seek a rational voice across the political landscape and for those seeking strength and optimism over the pessimism of those who seek to use you for personal agendas, titles, and pure raw power, please read the words that follow. Read them and share them with others.

VIRGINIA REPUBLICAN CREED

We believe…

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers, is essential to sustaining the moral essence of our nation.

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume the personal and civic responsibilities necessary to maintaining a free society;

That Federal and State Government must diligently preserve individual liberty by observing constitutional limitations on government power;

That excess taxation is a form of tyranny, therefore, fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints on spending must be consistently exercised at all levels of government;

That the free enterprise system, not government, is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice;

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense and that the borders of our sovereign nation must be protected.

It is a people centered solution based approach dedicated to providing you with the resources necessary to achieve your goals while eliminating the obstacles you face in the form of an intrusive government whose desire for self preservation and power presents the greatest threat this nation will ever face.

Join us, the Republican Party, and experience the best that freedom has to offer.

Stephen Winslow is the executive editor of Conservative Viewpoints.
