Not a bad total for a state with about 8.3 Million residents (including children who are not old enough to vote yet).

How dare you question the vote totals.

What happened in Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania last November is going to look like fair play against what happens in Virginia next month.

The Democrats CANNOT and WILL NOT allow the Virginia Governor’s race to be seen as a referendum on this administration’s first year.

I'm miffed. If you don't trust the election system, then you OF COURSE support compromising with the left on a set of rules to make the voting system fair for both sides RIGHT?! (I hear birds chirping)

Ask yourself, if a party doesn't even support the idea of establishing standards for the voting system that both sides can agree upon, does it actually support democracy itself? Worse yet, if the party thinks the favorable solution is to spread mistrust in elections, is that not the same thing as a direct assault on democracy?

Yet, regardless of the choice Virginia parents make, the government will continue to take my money without my consent to support the government schools. Meanwhile, the privileged like Terry McAuliffe will keep their kids as far away from the government school system as possible.

Who wouldn't prefer private over public if they have the means? Regardless, that doesn't hide the fact we all must pay the cost of society, and that includes education, unless you just prefer to live in a very uneducated society, much worse that what it already is.

For the clueless numbnuts out there, I sent two of my kids to private school. The cost of their tuition was about $2000 less than the cost per child the city was funding public education for. So the "cost of society" is a lot less when you get the government out of it. Also the quality of it was light years better.

Why not just fund the students by giving that money to parents and thereby giving all parents the choices currently reserved for the privileged?

Bingo. THIS is the answer. When school boards and teacher's unions keep pushing curricula unpopular and considered dangerous by parents, and refuse to listen to parents, this solution of the $$ goes with the student is a way to make a point in a big way.

When a sizeable portion of a school district's parents pull their kids out of public schools, they are going to realize that it is the parents who have the real power in education. Try running a school district with a continually shrinking funding base.

By any means necessary. Virginia Dems are now suing the USPS for delayed delivery of election related material. Can't have their fail safe running behind.

There's a mail truck full of ballots somewhere just waiting to be "found" when it's needed.

(10-24-2021 01:43 PM)CrimsonPhantom Wrote:  Reporter Has an Uncomfortable Reminder for Terry McAuliffe After He Again Invokes Donald Trump


Quote:We have been closely monitoring and documenting the wild developments that seem to occur daily as the race between Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe and his Republican opponent Glenn Youngkin hits the home stretch before Election Day (Nov. 2nd).

McAuliffe’s campaign has been in a freefall, which started a month ago during a televised September debate where a visibly agitated McAuliffe admitted that “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” As a result of his repeated blunders and Youngkin relentlessly staying on message and on the attack, the race is now in a dead heat.

McAuliffe’s primary campaign tactic has been to make the race about former President Donald Trump, believing he will be a drag on Youngkin’s campaign in a state that has drifted further left over the last several years. But the tactic has now backfired with the press, as not only has CNN called him out for his over-emphasis on Trump (he mentioned him 18 times in one interview), but now ABC News has. Watch as reporter Jon Karl provides an uncomfortable reminder to him as to who he’s actually running against:



Karl mentioning that to McAuliffe made me think on the issue a little more, and my thought on this is that McAuliffe is not simply invoking Trump every chance he gets because he thinks it’ll hurt Youngkin, but he also appears to be doing it because he can’t craft articulate arguments against anything Youngkin has had to say about how he’d govern Virginia.

Seriously. Has anyone out there ever seen McAuliffe successfully take on any Youngkin argument on running Virginia? I haven’t. All he has is “but Trump.” In effect, he’s actually trying to run against Trump here and not Youngkin which, in my view, is another sign of desperation.

The other signs of such have been obvious, with him bringing in fellow election denier Stacey Abrams in to campaign for him, resorting to bringing an oversized blow-up “Trump chicken” to packed Youngkin rallies, denying clear video evidence of him stomping off a news station’s set in a huff over education questions, and making an embarrassing admission in a fundraising email about how they “thought folks would be fired up to get out the vote, but at this point, it seems like enthusiasm is at an all-time low.”

And enthusiasm is likely to sink even lower with signs like this cropping up across the state:



Ouch.

Even if McAuliffe does end up winning the race, his opposition can at least take comfort in the fact that not only did Youngkin, his team, and Republicans across the state not make it easier for him, but he also didn’t make it easy for himself – at all.

Do you think that the cheat is in again, and the Dems are prepping for McAuliffe’s narrow win - but that becomes a mandate for CRT, Trans stuff, and parents muzzled from questioning any of it publicly??

Unfortunately, I don’t trust my government anymore………..

Let’s take the easy/obvious issue first — if McAuliffe wins (or if he “wins”) by even one (1) vote, then *Hell* *Yes* his victory will “become a mandate” for all the things you listed and more, and yes of course dissenting people, whether parents or students or anyone else — will be told, in so many words, to sit down and STFU. But that’s true, really, for every Democrat running for any federal or state office anywhere in America. At this point, that agenda is baked into everything they say or do.

As to whether the fix is in… unclear. You never know with those people, but this time, I tend to doubt it. Remember that with Trump, they had 4 years to prepare. And 6-7 months to mobilize the absentee ballot operation, once Covid set in.

With McAuliffe, they thought they had this in the bag until mid-September. Both because of the polls, and also because Dems have shown authentic, non-cheating strength in Virginia the past 10-12 years. So I don’t think they have been gearing up, the way they did with Trump. A successful operation like that cannot be suddenly turned on like a faucet with 5 or 6 weeks to go.

Plus, no matter what they say or claim, everyone knows that Glenn Youngkin is about as threatening as a bowl of lukewarm oatmeal left out on the breakfast table all morning. It’s hard for the Dems to whip up that kind of hysteria about him. People like Douglas Wilder keep giving unhelpful interviews to the media. That serves as a powerful reminder to AA voters that there is no “danger” here, and they owe nothing to a professional sleaze-bag like McAuliffe.

So, all in all, I don't believe McAuliffe’s supporters have the time, resources or manpower to implement the same kind of operation that they used against Trump in places like AZ, GA, PA, etc. Now, the flip side of all that is, those states from last year were all slightly pro-Trump to begin with, and VA is usually about 55-45 for Team Blue. So they may not need the full court press to hang on, they way they did last year.

Neighboring Fairfax County, also NoVa, has lost more than 10,000 student enrollments in the last year or so. And it is still growing very quickly.

People that can are voting with their feet and sending their kids to private schools. The segregation of our society is becoming more rapid as the left ruins everything they get involved with.

Sad

lol

We can go 3 consecutive days with no mail delivery at all.

I see mail trucks out delivering on Sunday evenings. There has been a Hiring sign at our local PO for months now, they can't find anyone to work and the USPS used to be a rather coveted job, with the Fed benies and all.

Dims, as usual, barking up the wrong tree. Their fake case might be heard sometime this decade I guess.
