Letter to the Editor: Vote for Chris Perkins for a 'Better and Brighter Future'

Response to Connolly's comment that Perkins doesn't have "sweat equity" needed to hold office.

In Response to Gerry Connolly for his comment that veterans and career-first officers, including Colonel Perkins, do not have the "sweat equity" needed to hold federal office. Gerry Connolly, a lawyer who doesn't legislate because Nancy says read Obama Care after it is passed. Connolly also say Yes when Nancy and Harry want more Tax Revenues from the 53% who pay taxes, and Yes to Harry and Obama when the Far Left want devastating cuts to our national defense capabilities and increasing unemployment in private and public sectors.  Gerry Connolly's "sweat equity",is take money from tax payers and give it away in order to keep the very large size chairs he needs.  

Gerry Connolly is hell-bent on cutting the military and economic capabilities needed to protect Americans at Home and Abroad and increasing unemployment in the private sector. The provisions of this budget sequestration legislation include:

  • Over 100,000 soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen, many of whom are just returning from multiple combat tours Laid-off
  • Ground forces Reduced to pre-1940 levels
  • Naval forces Reduced to pre-1915 levels
  • Tactical air fighter forces Reduced to the lowest level in the history of the U.S. Air Force.

Congressional Representatives should fight to stop the coming demoralizing blow to local and nation-wide economic goods and services production and distribution systems and our national security! BUT, as in the past, Jerry Connolly follows his Democrat leaders who support devastating cuts to our national defense capabilities and increasing unemployment in private and public sectors. 

The Virginia 11th District needs Responsiveness and Leadership on Economic, Security, Education and Entitlement budget, program planning and cost effective implementation   Fellow Virginians Vote for Chris Perkins for Responsiveness, Government Stewardship, and a Better and Brighter Future for you and your Family.!.

War, war, and more war! $2 trillion more the military doesn't want or need! It'd be sad if VA loses jobs because of cuts in defense spending, but it's for the good of the country. It's time to stop protecting entrenched local interests at the expense of national needs. Vote sanity. Vote for Connolly and Kaine and Obama!

Thank you for writing this letter. Chris Perkins deserves our support. Jerry Connolly never served in the armed forces--what the hell would he know about sweating buckets in the jungles of Central America and in the deserts of the Middle East in the uniform of his country, which is what I and people like Colonel Perkins were doing during the years that Connolly spent sitting on his butt in air-conditioned offices around the beltway? Apart from the sequestration question, Connolly doesn't represent Virginia's 11th district, he represents the far-left vanguard of the democrat party, and that's about it. For Connolly to wrongfully demean Col. Perkins' long record of honorable, dedicated service to our country and excellent qualifications for congress as he did just further goes to show what a mistake it would be to re-elect Connolly.

Jerry Connolly knows about positive, progressive, effective government. Perkins' honorable military service is to be applauded, but it doesn't make someone a good potential Congressperson. You can't give orders and expect you'll get your way in the House, and pursuing regressive, right-wong policies is not the way to go. Put America and Americans first. Vote for Connolly.

Right-wing, I meant. Or Right Wrong.
