What have you gained? What have you lost?
My ancestral home. Before we migrated to South Caroline and Georgia. Before the Revolution.
You have never had a Governor like the one you just anointed. What you did gain was a man who will not step in to stop any attempts by the almighty federal government to declare a martial law. What you did not gain a man of good reputation, who will represent your interests. You have not seen days like you are about to witness since Arnold sailed up the James River to take, and burn, Richmond.

A major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Virginia Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert C. Sarvis on the ballot — a move that could split conservative votes in a tight race.
So much for the don’t vote, or vote for the third party libertarian, philosophy. But then, what do I know?
