As we come to the end of the campaign for the LCRC Chair, I am asking people to consider what my esteemed compatroit Greg Stone has said. It is about leadership. Mr Stone it absolutely correct. We need the best possible leadership for the upcoming campaigns. We are dealing with a majority of Democrats and Independents in the BOS in 2011. We will need to contend with recruiting potential candidates for these seats. This challenge comes with the large pool of volunteers that will be needed. The new candidates will need help from our LCRC, and for this the GOP in LC will need a plan. Mark Sell has the vision and the plan in place to lead us going forward …

Recruiting the right candidates–
Candidates who know how to create jobs, meet a payroll, and keep a budget!

Raising Money to support those candidates–
Systematically leverage our revived and energized Republican base here in Loudoun to widen, deepen, and diversify our fundraising pool.

Resource state-of-the-art campaigns–
with world-class websites, research, and polling.

Reach Loudoun–
We are not going to give up a single group, demographic or individual voter to our opposition but will reach out to the independents, moderate Democrats, and minority groups who share our values.

Roasting the current Democrat/Independent Majority on the Board of Supervisors–
and their job-wrecking, business-busting, tax-and-spend-and-tax-some-more policies that are leading Loudoun tiptoeing down the road to fiscal ruin.

Please take some time to read the plan and vist Mark’s website:

You will see that Mark has the plan the vision and an understanding of the local scene here in Loudoun that will lead to the ouster of the big spenders in 2011.

Mark Sell, candidate for Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, yesterday released the following statement from Kyle Kunkler, the Eastern Loudoun RPV Victory Field Director in 2009:

I consider Mark to be an instrumental part of the GOP 2009 victory in Loudoun. Mark Sell’s ability to recruit and coordinate volunteer activities was essential. Throughout the campaign season, Mark came through and was able to motivate volunteers time and time again to come out and support our Republican ticket.

Mark was involved in virtually every aspect of the grassroots campaign in Loudoun from door to door events to the staffing of ‘Back-to-School-Night’ events for half of the county to his participation in various festivals, fairs, parades and community events. Mark brought people to these events, and participated, standing shoulder to shoulder with the volunteers that he so frequently was able to motivate into action. Mark also participated in phonebanking, the 72-Hour Task Force, and Election Day Operations. No job is beneath Mark, he knows that in order to lead one must be willing and able to do the grunt work needed to win an election.

Mark Sell always had a can-do attitude, and is ready to do whatever is needed to help a campaign. With his long background of activism in the local Party, Mark understands the nuts and bolts of what it takes to win the ground war. I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy for Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Party.

Klye was the Virginia Republican Party’s coordinator for eastern Loudoun. He lead the victory team. He oversaw the day to day trench warfare of the political campaign here in eastern Loudoun. The guy knows who brought the goods to the table. Mark Sell kept a steady stream of volunteers coming through the door. Volunteers are the life’s blood of a political campaign, especially at the local county level. The ability to put boots on the ground is called leadership.

It was this kind of leadership that helped make last falls campaign the success that it was. Politics is about advancing an ideology at the balot box. The Republican Party’s stated ideology is conservative. We all are conservatives here in Loudoun GOP. Some conservatives, like Mark, have been giving voice to conservatism for years in the public square. This involves, among other things, running campaigns. With this experience, Mark is able to consistently bring people to events. This is how campaigns are won. This is why Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli endorsed Mark for our Chairman. This is why the 2009 Victory Campaign in Loudoun endorses Mark Sell in 2010 — to take back the BOS in 2011!

Today Loudoun County is at a crossroads. The people need to make a choice, either they can take back control of their government, or, they can leave it to the fiscally challenged Board of Supervisors (BOS) dominated by liberal Democrats. If the choice is to take back control, then Mark Sell is the man for this job. As a life long Republican Mark has been a campaign volunteer, Precinct Captain, Magisterial District Chair and Party Treasurer. Mark has paid his dues and learned the ropes in multiple campaigns. Mark has learned what needs to be done on the ground, in the trenches, to win elections. In the last election Mark was a deputy for Ken Cuccinelli in his successful campaign to become our Attorney General. The McDonnell-Bolling-Cuccinelli team ran as unapologetic conservatives, and won in a landslide.

Mark plan is to field a full suite of candidates, who will build on this momentum. Candidates who will remember their conservative roots, and that their duty is to the people. Candidates who are also unapologetic about their conservatism. Candidates who know that a government that governs well, governs least. Smaller government demands that the spending must be cut. Mark plan is to field a full slate of fiscal conservatives to oust the big spenders on the BOS in 2011, and engage every constituency in our county. This will require seasoned leadership. It is for this reason I support Mark Sell for Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Party and ask you to come out and vote him on March 6th, 2010.

We all have seen our party lose its way in this last decade. The spending excesses of our Republican congress, and our local county elected officials resulted in a Republican Party as a small minority. The party deserved what it got. The party must never again forget its fiscal conservative roots. Small government is good government. If we do not reduce spending we cannot reduce taxes without running even higher deficits. Runaway government spending is the root of our economic woes. Mark will find candidates who understand this, and more importantly, will not forget this.

As a long time grass roots activist in Loudoun County, Mark has worked hard to stop the Meals Tax, the increases in the Sales Tax and on other liberal boondoggles, giving voice to our shared Republican and conservative ideals in the public square speaking before our BOS on many occasions, so that the people of Loudoun will not be saddled with even higher taxes. The People of Loudoun deserve better than what they have been burdened with in past years. Loudoun has the highest tax rate of any county in VA. Loudoun even has highest taxes of any county in the South. We can and must do better. To do so, we must win the BOS. To do that we need a leader who has been there, in good times and in bad, and who knows the ropes. Mark Sell will not need on the job training. He will be ready to lead from day one — Mark knows Loudoun.

One more time with feeling: Thank you Dede!! You liberal piece of trash. You were embraced by the party for 20 years, and when you suffer your first real setback you came out for the Democrat in the 11th hour.

Owens was brought into the Democrat fold real quick.  He lied on the campaign trail, and the idiot moderates, like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football Lucy is holding, voted for the Democrat expecting him to keep his promise.   Rats!  Owens said he would not support a public option, well he voted for it.   He broke that and three other promises the first day in office.  Where is that football now Charlie?  From the Gouverneur Times:

Many feel that it was unlikely Mr. Owens would have won those crucial few thousand votes if the voting public was aware of his intent with regard to the Health Care bill.  The majority of residents in this district do not support the Health Reform bill as it is now written and many feel like they’ve become victims of a fraud perpetrated by their chosen candidate.

Ya think?  Message to the great pho-intellectuals of the middle — read some history!  Democrats migrate leftward in a flash once they reach Washington.  Wishing it were otherwise will not make it so, accept reality.  Read up on economics and find out that there are NO moderate economic theories.  Either you are a socialist central planner, or you allow the market to make choices.  Mixing the two always leads to the former squeezing out the later. Always.  Wishing it were otherwise, will not make it so.

Let this be a lesson to Newt, Owens was the 219th vote. Owen’s win gave Pelosi enough ammunition to finish off conservatism in the US. Public Healthcare is the holy grail for liberals. Why, because historically it causes the country to drift ever leftward.  Gingrich has mud on his face for supporting Dede, and 2012 will be harder for him.

Note to Republican leadership, try to at least run a moderate.  Running leftists makes it difficult for the conservatives (who are 3/4′s of the party) to vote for the candidates you field.  Scozzafava not only threw her support behind Owen, she was more liberal.    I guess it would be more embarrassing if she voted for the bill, but, there was another option.  The primary reason for a political party is to espouse a philosophy in the political arena, and bring this philosophy to life in legislation.  Picking candidates that are hostile to this philosophy makes no sense.

This is the US, not France, not England. We are made of sterner stuff. I hope conservatives do not go quietly into the night.  This vote today will seal the fate of the Democrat party in 2010.  But if the Republicans cannot hold on till then, or, overturn Obamacare, we as a nation are sunk.

Just a low rez video of Tag’s victory speech last night at The Dock in Lansdowne; starts about 10 min. before, Tag giving an update on current returns as he did throughout the evening, then skips to right when the race was called.

Nice touch to have former delegate Dick Black introduce him. Black lost this House of Delegates seat to Democrat David Poisson in 2005, the beginning of a pretty downcast 4-year era for Loudoun County Republicans, and seeing Dick on the stage here in 2009 neatly symbolizes the end of the negative era.

The Speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi,  claims that last night was a win for Democrats.  Really!? According to the Politico:

“From our perspective, we won last night,” the California Democrat told reporters during a Wednesday photo op.

Nancy gives the term deluded a whole new dimension.  Someone should ask Deeds, and Corzine about the raging success they experience last night.  Not to mention Poisson, Miller, and the rest of the sordid lot here in VA.

The denial of the obvious is going to cause history to repeat itself, in a big way.  The Democrats think that passing the disastrous health care will save them.  It won’t.  The end result will be a tsunami of voters coming to the polls to destroy the party that socialized our medical health care.  It will make 1994 look like a walk in the park.   So please Nancy, keep claiming the Democrats won last night.  Please.

Not only did the Republicans sweep Virginia, gaining a seat or two in the House of Delegates along the way, but they took the governorship of New Jersey, and gay marriage was defeated in Maine.  The leftists have been spanked.  Praise God!
