This is your "Democrat Socialist Party"?

This is your "Democrat Socialist Party"?

0 comments

The Dems nominate flaming socialist Creigh Deeds for governor of Virginia:

Although his conservative voting record served him well with his Bath County constituents, his votes on several politically charged issues could put him out of step with voters in next month's Democratic primary, which traditionally attracts a more liberal base.

Those votes have included support for a family life program in schools that would define abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage as "moral obligations and not matters of personal opinion or personal choice," a mandate that the words "In God We Trust" be displayed prominently in every school and a bill to increase the penalty for killing a fetus.

Deeds voted to designate English as the official language of Virginia, to make illegal immigrants ineligible for state or local benefits, and against a bill to allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition rates. He voted to void contracts between members of the same sex that would have provided rights associated with marriage, such as hospital visits, and voted against adding sexual orientation to a list of hate crime categories.

It probably helped Deeds that his main rival was wretched, barely-a-Virginian opportunist Terry McAuliffe.
