After attending a meeting where he spoke in Richmond recently, I was very impressed by Virginia state senator, candidate for attorney general, and self-described “strict constructionist,” Ken Cuccinelli.
Specifically, I was impressed by his willingness to invoke the Constitution early and often as his personal political compass.
But don’t take my word for it. Check out what the man himself has to say on his website about why the Gadsden Flag is the symbol for his campaign:
In the last several years, and most significantly since the election of the current administration and Congress, the trend towards increased Federal Government control over every aspect of the lives of Virginia’s citizens has been alarming. The time is now to turn the tide away from destructive big government policies, toward a less intrusive, less oppressive form of government; a return to the first principles intended by the founding fathers. I will apply these founding principles to every aspect of my work as your next Attorney General. For this reason, I have chosen the Gadsden Flag as a symbol for my campaign.
Needless to say, when the time comes to nullify ObamaCare in Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli is the kind of leader we want in the AG’s office.
Might also a prime candidate for the 10-4 Pledge…
