FreedomWorks in Richmond With Dick Armey and John Taylor

The first official FreedomWorks Virginia event went off without a hitch tonight down at Europa Italian Cafe on E. Cary St. I highly recommend this resturant. Its easy to get to, plenty of parking less than half a block from the door. Go spend money and tell 'em FreedomWorks sent ya'.

We had about 100 folks in attendance, and some of those folks drove from as far as Rockbridge and Shennandoah County to hear Dick Armey, John Taylor, Nan Swift, and Tabitha Hale (SmartGirlPolitics) speak on issues near and dear to the hearts of Virginians. FreedomWorks is very lucky to have such talented, intelligent, motivated individuals

Doc was under the weather, but one of the best stand-ins ever filled in for him. Scott Lee from The Lee Brothers did the Emcee duties and he was, well, he was Scott Lee.

There may be a new segment on the Lee Brothers radio show on Saturday mornings. Seems Scott is a huge fan of good BBQ sauce, and since I happen to know where to get some primo, Scott came up with an idea. I'll let him develop it as he sees fit, but stay tuned. This may get sticky. ;)

Be sure to listen to Doc on Friday. He's going to have a film crew from the BBC in the studio with him. I met them tonight. A lot of Britons are going to get introduced to some real Americans when this documentary on Cap and Trade gets broadcast in England on BBC2.

Once the Virginia election is over, and we have a conservative majority back in charge, the real work begins. The mission is the re-affirmation of the sovereignty of the several states and the rights of those states to conduct business without unneccessary government regulations.

We need to stop cap and trade in its tracks. We need to drive a stake through the heart of domestic energy production restrictions. We need to push hard for the GA and the VA Senate to recognize that the federal government does not have the final word on the welfare of the citizens. The states have the right and obligation to defend the rights of its citizens.

It starts here. It starts now. In Virginia. Where it began the first time.

The Constitution of the United States is the Law.
Everything else is just a regulation.
