It was a nail-biter of a governor’s race, but as the polls predicted, Democrat Terry McAuliffe narrowly beat Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinnelli, a Republican, with 47.39 percent of the vote.

And that wasn’t the only close race in Tuesday’s Nov. 5 general election.

    Well Virginia had better start some $100 million dollar training classes on how to rub to sticks that the government provides to us. We all are all entitled to that much now.

    Just what we need a democratic carpetbagger from New York. The state of entitlements, high taxes, high welfare roles, etc. People and businesses are leaving New York, because there is no work, no positive growth and high taxes.

    Is this in store for Virginia?

    Paraphrasing:
    Winston Churchill said, "People get the kind of government that they deserve."
    The Scriptures say, "In your elder years you will hate the ways of the world."

    Virginians better know how to rub two sticks together to build a fire. By the time the next election rolls around they'll need it.

    We have learned absolutely nothing and voted in a Governor that sides with Obama! If you take a stand during an election it seems you will lose every time to the democrat. Wake up and take a stand!
