Now I must personally mention that I was skeptical of Youngkin as the candidate at first. Coming from the Carlyle Group, I thought he might totally be in the pocket of big business which, as we have seen of late, is often counter to the needs of the majority of the citizenry. I was pleased to see, however, as his campaign unfolded, his style and content was one of blending the needs of all citizens into a powerful force impacting all of us positively. Contrast that to Terry McAuliffe, a man with no principles and blindly charting the course that the Democratic Party has turned into. Even so, McAuliffe had a large power base in Virginia and began with a hefty polling lead. Youngkin, however, refused to be discouraged and went to work eloquently explaining his positions which were much more in line with the average Virginian. He also supported and had the support of President Trump, yet he was not so tightly wedded to that camp that he couldn't distinguish himself as an independent thinker offering his own views. That, in turn, gave him the advantage of even gaining support from significant Democratic voters of the blue collar set who didn't like Trump even though they believe in many of the things he stood for. Youngkin could then gain their support and President Trump clearly understood that and gave Youngkin his unqualified support and with McAuliffe's foolish position on parents and schools, Youngkin was off to the races.
From the very beginning, Youngkin was upbeat and positive and he listened to the people. And when McAuliffe made the most stupid statement about parents having no business intervening in their children's education, the dye was cast. As we saw in Loudoun County, where Yougkin even campaigned in front of schools, he stood fast for the concept of traditional American education and the voters, the ones who counted, not the teacher's unions and the school boards, and the issue gained such overwheming positive support for Youngkin that even some cheating couldn't defeat him. The key to a Republican winning any election is turnout and in Virginia it is particularly noteworthy in Democratic areas. You see, when a Republican can have the impact of holding down the Democratic vote in places such as Arlington, Fairfax, Richmond and even Tidewater, the overwhelming votes they get in other areas of the state can't be overcome and he accomplished this by careful nurturing and coalition building. The result: Youngkin won with sufficiency to overcome any potential changes and he also brought in with him A Republican lieutenant governor (black, immigrant and woman) and a Hispanic male Attorney General. Furthermore, he now has a two vote majority in the General Assembly. He has effectively stopped the Democratic overthrow of constitutional governance in its tracks and watch Virginia move rapidly back to a more tradtional view of governance, honoring the long history of the Old Dominion.
Does anyone have any doubts why the tremblors which had been striking Monticello Mountain near Charlottesville have grown silent? Why, it's because with the return to traditional governance, Thomas Jefferson is no longer rolling over in his grave. Not only that, but it means the arrival at long last in Virginia of a giant Red Wave. Sorry, Dems, but if you think that is all I have news for you. The Wave is not limited to Virginia, but is ready to spread throughout the United States as the majority of Americans are at long last waking up. This Wave isn't so much about politics as it is about freedom from tyranny. Watch it grow and prosper in the months ahead. America has had enough.
