    Funny Get Out the Vote Story 

    Funny story – So I was out door knocking in a pretty rural area. People with small farms. The street is very long, and the houses were up off the street and VERY long. So I was walking up this driveway, which was uphill. Some guy drives up to me on his tractor and asked me what campaign I was with. I told him the Romney campaign, and he told me I could stay. LOL. Then he told me that he already voted. Then he asks me if I needed to go to one of his neighbor’s house. I looked on my list and said yes. He literally picked me up, put me on his tractor and drove me over. He told me it was too far to walk. I have never been on a tractor before. I am burbs girl. It was great. Sorry I was alone and wasn’t able to get a picture. Best memory of month travelling around to swing states.

    I am in the ultimate swing county in OH.  This county may just decide who will be our next president.  It is said to be decided by less than .001%.  So which me luck that I can get the Romney voters out to the polls over the day and a half.

      The kindness, helpfulness and welcoming spirit of some people are like a warm blanket and a mug of your favorite hot beverage. So glad you were able to experience that AND a ride on a farm tractor. You have now arrived !

      Glad you “plowed” ahead and “cultivated” some more Romney votes.

    Virginia 2012 Ballot Initiatives 

    Question 1

    Shall Section 11 of Article I (Bill of Rights) of the Constitution of Virginia be amended (i) to require that eminent domain only be exercised where the property taken or damaged is for public use and, except for utilities or the elimination of a public nuisance, not where the primary use is for private gain, private benefit, private enterprise, increasing jobs, increasing tax revenue, or economic development; (ii) to define what is included in just compensation for such taking or damaging of property; and (iii) to prohibit the taking or damaging of more private property than is necessary for the public use?

    Question 2

    Shall Section 6 of Article IV (Legislature) of the Constitution of Virginia concerning legislative sessions be amended to allow the General Assembly to delay by no more than one week the fixed starting date for the reconvened or “veto” session when the General Assembly meets after a session to consider the bills returned to it by the Governor with vetoes or amendments?

     

    I feel very strongly about question 1.  Of course we should do everything possible to protect private property rights.  We shouldn’t be allowed to lose our homes simply because some town wants to increase its tax base and take away someone’s home to do it.

    Question 2 I have no opinion on.

    There will be additional ballot measures depending on what county you live in.  Fairfax County, for instance, will have a $25 million bond question on expending the library system across the county.  I am against that.  We can do that when the economy improves, there is no reason to go into debt for that.
