It is with great pleasure that I write this endorsement of my friend Winsome Sears for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor of Virginia in the upcoming Republican convention. I have known Winsome and her husband Terry for over 20 years now and they are the epitome of solid Christian folks of great character. Winsome has not only served the nation, state and our community, she also serves the Lord and is an active member of our church. We have worked together several times over the past 20 years, and I have always been impressed with Winsome’s knowledge, wisdom, and integrity. She represents the type of individual that we should have working for us in the halls of government. Please when you attend the Republican nominating convention vote for Winsome to represent the Republican Party on the ballot for lieutenant governor of Virginia. She will provide the kind of reasoned leadership that we need and will all grow to respect!

There appears to be some misinformation that Democrats do not appreciate personal freedom and responsibility. Where did you get that information? Oh, don’t tell me. You listen to Tucker Carlson spew his filth. Why exactly do you feel religion is under attack. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this. What idiots are you listening to as they vomit out their lies and misinformation? You’re so use to Trump’s lies, you believe anything you hear. This is sad.

Leftists... so racist against those who won't stay on the plantation and who advocate for personal freedom and responsibility.

You’re right, Mr. Spock, conservatives do not have a hold on God, country, or family. Remember, conservative Christians embraced and still embrace Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump is the opposite of Christianity and there is no embracing Trump and the Gospels.

With one Republican legislature after another like Georgia trying to force voter suppression laws to make it as difficult as possible for people of color and all minorities to vote, it’s clear the Republican conservatives are racists bigots. That is also Not of the Gospels.

So conservatives, which god do you worship? The likes of a sociopathic, narcissistic pathological liar, racist, sexual predator called Trump or the true God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and the true Gospels of Jesus Christ. You need to make a choice here.

I've met Winsome Sears and she has my vote. She is awesome and is a true Patriot, conservative, and Christian. There is a revival in our country currently of Patriots who do no like what the current administration is doing in the White House. Like the 'woke' movement, the Patriots are awakening and not tied to any particular past president. A revival of sorts is happening to spur Christianity given the current threats to our First Amendment, Bill of Rights in pursing religious freedom. It is the reason many came to America in the first place. Winsome upholds the values I hold dear - God, country, and family. She is a class act and will steer us back to what we once were. God bless her.

Conservatives don't have a lock on "God, country, and family" you realize, I hope. And "patriots" come in all parties, left, right, center and in between. That said, there t are other religions besides Christianity that are patriots, hold family values, and worship. I'm sure you already realize that, of course.

missliberty

Yes, I agree--you are right - patriots come in all parties – left, center, and right and from all religions. A Patriot is one who supports their country and will defend it against enemies or detractions. Like in the American Revolution, Patriots were colonists who rejected British rule – Patriots today reject Marxism, which is against my values – God, family, and country. Marxism is against those values and doesn’t believe in nuclear family structure, wants to tear down capitalism and laissez-faire economics, and abolish the passing down of personal property to heirs. Since I reject Marxist views, therefore I am a Patriot.

Blackhorsegirl

Colonists didn’t reject British rule. Their complaint was taxation without representation. I would say Marxism is the opposite of capitalism. Do you really know how Marxists feel about their families?

missliberty

Reject British rule = taxation without representation. Yes, I agree – Marxism is the opposite of capitalism. I am not a Marxist so not sure how they feel about their families. There are many family types – I believe in the nuclear family where a couple has dependent children and stands a s basic social unit.

Blackhorsegirl

Miss Liberty, I’m not quite sure what you are implying: are you saying if a person is not a conservative Republican and far right Christian, they are Marxists?

missliberty

No, Marxism is Eurocentric ideology – they believe in a Bourgeoisie (a small ruling class) and the Proletariat (large working class). Those who are not conservative e.g., a centrist, not a Republican e.g., independent or non- Christian e.g., Hindu does not necessarily mean they are Marxist.

Blackhorsegirl

Thanks. I would say Marxism is the opposite of Capitalism and has nothing to do with family values. Even communists love their families. Even liberals have no issue with capitalism. I’m not sure 🤔 to which life you wish to return or long for.

In a society that focuses on individual liberty, small government, and personal responsibility. Something our Founding Fathers had a vision for us all. Where we all can be free to think our own thoughts and believe our own beliefs. And reside next to each other respectfully. And it’s ok to disagree with each other – where we can debate in a civil manner without censorship and making personal accusations. I dream of a country where we can choose our beliefs, thoughts, job, officials, laws, taxes – being equal citizens before a law that is the same for all.

Let me remind our good conservatives that Judge Roy Moore who lost the Senate election in Alabama because he was a sexual pervert who was banned from shopping malls for going after underage girls (while an assistant district attorney) still had quite a following.

I’m going out on a limb here but I don’t think supporting the Roy Moore’s of the world is a path Jesus would have taken.

Blackhorsegirl

There are no threats to religion. Whose lies are you listening to?

Blackhorsegirl

Nope, do not vote Republican. More Trump and more backward thinking. Virginia has moved forward in a positive way. Please, let’s not go back to the dark ages
