I'm a Millennial with multiple young children and a full time job. I vote in county sheriff PRIMARIES. I write to my Senators and Representative. People who criticize Millennials for their laziness and entitlement (sometimes deservedly) and then don't get out to vote... Let's just say that is not an act deserving of any respect.

If I can do it, almost anyone can. It takes like 15 minutes if you go at the right time. Besides the real difference it can make locally and nationally, voting is simply a part of being a respectable citizen instead of a willing slave of those who do vote (or rig elections).

Just to repeat, you can use PopVox to make it faster and easier to make your wishes known to your legislators.

I totally agree. Take also into consideration that many districts in VA won by less than 6% margin (which, in some districts, means that they won by less than 100 votes)...

The more local an election is the more power you have. In my area there was an election win by 15 votes that was "blamed" on a single person going to a high school basketball game why so and so was a bad choice.

You can count on it..... that the Virginia Socialists will be working hard to build their voting numbers over the next 10 months. They will legalize Felons to vote. They will legalize illegal aliens to vote. And... they will be mounting a HUGE campaign for voter registration.

Virginia Constitutionalist Patriots best out work them!

The strongest message that can be sent across our great nation, is if the Virginia House flips Republican and the Governor is replaced with a Republican.

To make this happen..... EVERYONE has to push voter registration and everyone has to vote! Hell.... help drive people to the ballot box!

I think voting is definitely part of the solution, but as others have said it can't be the entire solution. The government is practically famous for not rolling back bad laws once they've been signed, or at least taking decades to do so.

What I've seen suggested so far, in my opinion, doesn't do much to fix the Virginians' current situation.

Cujet is premature in his pessimism, IMO. As Ghost863 said, we still have the fourth and final recourse to fix our society if all else fails, which it hasn't yet, although it feels like it may be getting close. If VA goes that route, they must all hang together or they will assuredly hang separately. In other words, I sort of wonder when more Virginia militias will start forming if it isn't already happening.

I did see some recall signature booths in some of those pics of the rally. That also needs to be factored into the thinking here. Another thing that amazes... All of those folk armed, and not a single accidental discharge.

I am happy and relieved all went well yesterday and I am proud of my fellow gun owners for their conduct. Just wanted to post this so all of you can see what the sheeple are being told the rally.

Well done, Tard Army.
With a total lack of planning, and a 25% chance, you had a "success".

IOW, you didn't kill yourselves or anybody else (and hey, sincere condolences to the wingnuts and "burn everything" jackhole keyboard commandos who were salivating for just that), or shoot yourselves in both feet.
While they were in your mouth.
If we set the bar that low, this was a "successful" rally.
What does this ^^ accomplish?

First time I've read anything of his, not impressed. Reading his blog was a waste of time. The guy is an idiot (me being nice).

I left a couple of anonymous comments on his blog. He needs to read this old book:



IMHO the Richmond rally was a step in the right direction. No riots, no fires, no shootings, no beatings, no arrests, no pepper spray, no police lines with shields, no broken store windows - they even picked up their own trash.

The goal now is to get the truth past the media.

Edit: Aesop quickly deleted my 2 line mild criticism of his ten page rant.
