We did it! Frank Fannon and Alicia Hughes have the title of Alexandria City Councilmen-elect! I just love the smell of victory in the morning!

I want to “personally” e-thank every one of you who took the time to vote yesterday in the Alexandria City Council race and sent a message that one-party rule just isn’t right in the land of a democratic-republic.

Whether you responded to my column or the Alexandria Republican City Committee messages of “plunking,” for our three endorsed candidates, you took to the polls to buck the trend of single-party domination in Alexandria.

Thank you, not just for your vote, but for your time – be it an hour, a day, a week or a month of helping this team-oriented campaign succeed. Whether you walked your neighborhood or several neighborhoods; made phone calls or sent e-mails by the dozens, wrote a check, wrote a letter or simply cast your all-important ballot, this grassroots effort allowed us to garner two seats on the City Council.

This is just the beginning. As Lincoln became the first Republican president in winning the election of 1860, GOP candidate John C. Fremont helped lay the groundwork with his 1856 candidacy. Likewise in Alexandria, we shocked the community when Joe Murray was narrowly defeated by a mere 16 votes in a January special election for a House of Delegates seat. This, in an 80-20 Democratic majority district, jump-started the current GOP effort.

While we congratulate our new councilmen-elect Frank Fannon and Alicia Hughes, we also thank Phil Cefaratti. Each of the three GOP-endorsed candidates worked tirelessly getting out their messages to the public, appearing at countless homeowners association meetings, Metro stations, strip mall parking lots, neighborhood after neighborhood and candidate forums. All three can hold their heads high for running honorable campaigns with dignity and integrity.

But the work isn’t over just yet. We are on a roll. With House of Delegates seats at stake along with statewide races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general, we are looking ahead to November and a Congressional race in 2010.

All things are possible – with your continued help and support. Let’s keep the ball rolling and continue to take back out government.

    “… one party rule just isn’t right in the land of a
    democratic republic … buck the trend of one party
    domination.” Amen. Hopefully Manassas citizens will
    remember that advice when they vote in next
    May’s municipal elections.

    Is this the 100th day Barack Obama is not really president?

    Are you suggesting that there is some significant difference between Republicans and Democrats? I perceive them as the same coin with two diferent sides showing for marketing purposes. Like two supposedly-competing products actually manufactured by the same company, same ingrediants but differenbt ad campaigns appealing to different demographics.

    Fuzzy headed idealists and perpetual victims have the Democratic party to vote for.

    Anal-retentive fatalists and fundamentalist Christians have the Republican party.

    Either way you vote you get the pleasure and priviledge of paying for the wealthy class’s bailout and begging them to enforce US law or to give a damn about you.

    It’s true… All through the decade of the 90s, and this decade of the 00s, neither the Republican majority nor the Democratic majority did diddly about illegal aliens. In fact, they competed to see which of the parties could do the most harm to the country. And together, they really did a bang-up job.

    Having said that, the only group that is doing -anything- about illegal immigration is in the Republican Party. They are great, and I support them, but the crooked party hierarchy is worthless.

    The issues are beyond party affiliation. I am pleased that the voters of Alexandria are starting to see the light. The voters of Fairfax County are starting to wake up too.

    It’s about time. Who knows, maybe Arlington is next?

    Obama is “destroying” America? I guess we need a real leader in the WHite House, like Bush or McCain.

    Or Palin.

    Change We Can Count On:
    1. Enforce all Immigration Laws to the fullest extent.
    2. Prosecute business that hire illegal immigrants (do not use “knowingly hire” in the determination…anyone can say that they “did not know”. Therefore, they better demonstrate due diligence like using e-verify)
    3. Prosecute illegal immigrants and those who aid and abet them. Take a photo, fingerprints, etc. of all parties. Never allow illegal immigrants an option to acquire citizenship or work permits. Rescind the citizenship status of legal individuals who aid and abet illega immigrants and never allow them to acquire work permits here.
    4. Check all people for legal status during traffic stops. This will eliminate any argument against racial profiling. When a cop takes a license, they run it through their computers anyway, what’s one more step in adding the immigration status to the check.
    5. Legal status of parents of newborn children should be verified in order to issue a birth certificate. This will help prevent the anchor syndrome.
    6. When acquiring social benefits (welfare, foodstamps, housing, etc.) legal status of the adults applying for those benefits must be checked. Additionally, children’s information should never be allowed to acquire the benefits….don’t you think this is the loophole? I do! The loophole must be shut down.
    7. We must fix the 14th amendment loophole! We must do this now!
    8. No amnesty (or pathway to citizenship or whatever new term is developed)…EVER! Rewarding illegal behavior is RIDICULOUS!

    Our government does more harm & is an more serious threat to American Citizens & the future of this Nation than any of the terrorist organizations or diseases like Mexican Swine flu!

    Our Politicians keep telling us our Immigration laws are broken and we need an comprehensive solution, which are code words for Amnesty, our Immigration Laws are not broken, what is broken is our Political system when we elect Corrupt/Pandering politicians that puts votes ahead of American Citizens or the future of this Nation!

    Our government fails the most basic and primary task of government, to protect this Nation and its Citizens from invasion and enforce its laws.

    They refuse to abide by our Constitution, refuse to enforce our Immigration Laws and refuse to honor their Oath of Office!

    Our Government, past & present, Republican & Democrat, have allowed the invasion of 20 to 40 million criminals and uneducated peons which is the largest invasion of any Nation, at any time, by any means & in direct violation of Article IV, Section IV of our Constitution. This refusal to abide by our Constitution or enforce our Immigration Laws should be classified as Treason of the most foul kind, & is grounds for impeachment & trials for Treason!

    Not only have they allowed the invasion, they force American tax payers to pay Billions on Billions of dollars to provide Welfare, Prison cells, Educate the invaders numerous children, and free medical care, at the same time the invading horde break numerous laws and massive document fraud, & are destroying our schools, hospitals, communities, culture and standard of living while Robbing, Raping, Killing & Assaulting American Citizens at an rate the terrorist can only dream about.

    Recent statements in Mexico from both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary something needs to be done. “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers, and civilians,” she said.

    But no mention or concern that their refusal to stop the Massive Invasion of Illegal Aliens pouring across our borders or enforce our immigration laws causes an estimated 25 Americans to be killed per day and 10,s of thousands victims of Assault, Robberies, Rapes, Identify thief, and other assorted crimes committed by the invading horde of Illegal Aliens from Mexico on American citizens each year!

    Most of our Politicians in Wash. DC are wading knee deep in innocent American blood and suffering because they put Politics ahead of the welfare of American Citizens & the future of this Nation! The Welfare vote for the Democrats to further their Socialist Agenda and the Slave Labor for their Pay Masters in the Chamber of Commerce & Business for the Republicans is more important to our Corrupt /power mad Politicians than the lives and safety of Americans citizens!

    This government & most of the Politicians in Wash. DC have for years demonstrated an complete lack of concern for the devastation and havoc caused by the Massive invasion from Mexico and South American! Indeed, most have worked much harder on the behalf of the invading horde than they have for the American citizens that elected them!
