Letter: Christina DeRosa, Leesburg

Editor: In 2020, Democrats took control of the Virginia House of Delegates and State Senate while already holding the office of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. 

Gaining control of the entire state-level government led the Democrats to become drunk on power and push a radical progressive agenda on the people of Virginia. Without checks and balances in place, Virginia Democrats passed legislation that eroded election protections such as permitting voters to register on election day and implementing “no-excuse” absentee ballots, passed the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which the State Corporation Committee estimates will increase electricity costs by $800 for an average household, legalized marijuana, and enacted Social Emotional Learning requirements in schools that many argue are in line with education moving toward indoctrination. 

Moreover, since the Democrats have been in power, our state is experiencing a homicide rate at a 20-year high.

These are all negative developments for many Virginians. It’s now imperative that we restore checks and balances to the state government and stop this apparent effort to become the “California of the East.” We have a chance to do that this November by electing a Republican to statewide office – Glenn Youngkin for Governor, Winsome Sears for Lt. Governor, and Jason Miyares for Attorney General. Let’s restore some moderation in Richmond this November and right this ship before it sinks.

    I think the Virginia boat is sailing just fine. Terry McAuliffe will go to bat for all of the people, not just a privileged few. Regarding pot, if that’s what floats your boat, who am I to judge? Prohibition went out in the 1930s. Terry McAuliffee is a strong supporter of public education. He was acively involved in his children’s education & advocates for others to do the same. SEL in schools appears to be the latest boogeyman from the Hard Right. Sorry, I’m not buying into the paranoia. Please vote Loudoun!

    The vast majority of Mcaulliff’s (D) campaign money is coming from OUTSIDE OF VIRGINIA.
    The opposite is true for his opponent Glenn Youngkin.

    We don’t need wealthy elites who don’t even live in the Commonwealth trying to decide who should be our next governor.

    This is our election and Terry is the wrong choice.

      The money pushing Youngkin comes from out-of-state in the form of dark money. Don’t be so ridiculous.

      Just have a look at who is funding all of these ridiculously belligerent protestors at our school board meetings: Manhattan Institute, Citizens Renewing America (a Trump-affiliated group), the Cato Institute-rooted Parents Defending Education (a misnomer if I ever heard one), Turning Point USA, the completely obnoxious group run by Charlie Kirk, the Proud Boys, the 1776 project, and Prager U.

      So spare me your hand-wringing about McAuliffe’s out-of-state donors. At least you know who those are.

        You cannot refute my comment, so you shout “LOOK, a squirrel.”

        My comment is factual.
        Yours is disingenuous, at best.

        Are you asserting that the (D)s aren’t using “dark” money? Or is it that only the (R)s may be called out on it?
