Since Donald Trump took office last week, Democrats across Virginia have been mobilized into hordes of protesting temper tantrums. These Democrats believe that the end is neigh and, gosh darn it, they are going to do something it about. So, whether you know it or not, your delegate is most likely under attack from a swarm of angry liberals. Your State Senator is probably under attack from a mob of macabre Marxists. Your Congressmen is certainly besieged by battalions of battle-hardened snowflakes and professional liberal activists.
Please, reach out to your Republican delegates, state senators, and Congressmen and let them know that you support them. Encourage them. If a bunch of crazy liberals show up somewhere to protest something, call some friends, make some signs, grab some American Flags and go out and counter-protest them. I know that liberals have more free time than conservatives, but if you think that your Republican House and your Republican Senate, and our Republican General Assembly won’t fold like one of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits at the first sign of trouble, then you are seriously overestimating their courage and commitment.
You elected a Republican legislature in the Commonwealth, but now is the time to support and encourage them. You elected a Republican Congress and a Republican President – and when the Democrats react like the writers of The Walking Dead, trying to make their monsters more terrifying and vicious than the previous season – you need to show up to support the people you elected.
For Republicans, I know this is going to be hard. We just might have to take a break from arguing with each other and turn 100% of our attention and ire toward Democrats. In fact, we should be blowing up the email of Senators Kaine and Warner. We should be protesting outside their offices. If you have a Democrat Congressman, you should be calling them up, absolutely furious that they aren’t 100% behind the President of the United States. (Yes, I realize that is a ridiculous position to take, but when you mimic Democrats, sometimes you have to set aside your pride and behave somewhat ridiculously).
Republicans, don’t make the same mistakes you always make. Do not believe because you now have a Republican government that anything has changed. Now that you have a Republican government, it’s time to fight harder! You’ve knocked your enemy to the ground, now go in for the kill.
Most of us all have big Twitter (God bless you if you do) or Facebook networks right? Let’s do this, let’s take a break from bickering amongst ourselves, and let’s start patrolling for apoplectic liberals attacking Republican Delegates, Senators, and Congressmen. This won’t take as much time as you think. You don’t have to reason with them. Do not waste time and energy on logic. They aren’t using logic. Just defend your representatives.
If you have any talent as an internet troll, now is when your talents will be greatly appreciated.
[…] by angry liberals armed with the same histrionic talking-points. This is why, last week, I wrote an article encouraging Republicans to call their representatives in D.C. and Richmond and encourage them. The […]
A man who works hard and does right by his family is righteous in the eyes of the Lord let’s see Virginia. Va Republicans come together and produced legislation that protects the Forgotten men and women of America the working class and support our president please just don’t look to ride the coattails of his winning election to get into office this November.
This isn’t about Trump. This is plain and simple the Democrats paying back all things Republican for what right wing hate radio and TV put Obama through for 8 years. Learn to live with it as I doubt this will end for many, many years. Since Trump took office, it is virtually impossible to call Virginia Senators Kaine and Warner due to phone volume. Every day, busy signal.
I’m just the messenger. The message is what goes around, comes around.
Every once in a while Tucker nails the subject he talks about. Stand with Trump.
This is a great post and very timely. Over the weekend I was talking to one delegate who was describing how Republicans folded on an issue in Richmond for which you’d think Republicans would have gone on the offensive.
Liberals have gone absolutely apoplectic over Trumps victory and, now, the speed at which he is implementing new policies. I think Trump’s new slogan should be “I accomplished more in 1 week that most Republicans do in a lifetime.” On every media outlet they have just gone crazy because Trump is putting a stake right into their shriveled globalist hearts.
Such withering assaults can take their toll on any human. We need to support our elected Republicans wherever we can to help bolster them so they don’t cave. Remember, most politicians are “people” people and negativity can get to them much more easily than regular folks so they need to hear that people support them and our republican policies.
Now, if we could just get liberal sites to un-ban us….
It would be nice if I had at least one single Republican representing me. Maybe next year.
You have lost you mind.
Support R’s across the board.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was complicit to illegal aliens operating as Unlicensed Contractors, then allowed
VEC Commissioner to classify these criminals as independent contractors.
Tuck please pay closer attention to facts not a faction.
Trump on illegal employment of illegal aliens is like Winnie the Poo in charge of the honey.
Trump lied, I am tougher on illegal immigration , I go after the illegal employer.
I’m simply letting you know what is going on sir. The Democrats have shown their hand over the last week and our response is simple. If there are Democrats you support, then by all means, but no individual Republican gets anything done in a legislature without the support of every other Republican. So, when I tell people to support Republicans, I am operating under reality, not vanity or imagination.
NO I am letting you know what is going on , in particular
how criminals and illegal aliens are illegally employed in Virginia violating Va. Law.
Tell me Tuck ,
What is Rigglemans plan on dealing with employee misclassification ( HOW ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE EMPLOYEED). The next Governor has to sign Employee Misclassification Legislation, watcha got on that ? No policy on website
WTF , do you even have clue.
please read ALL comments posted in story Trump keeps his promises, there is a black and white guide.
R’s just go after immigrants,
NOT THE ILLEGAL EMPLOYER.
That sir is two faced.
They say if you split a crows tounge he can talk.
How to bag a RINO, huh some are just unwanted game and we are able to hunt unwanted game 365.
Yes, we all know about the illegals, but I trust that the Trump Admin will get tougher on employers. That really has nothing to do with what the Democrats are doing right now though.
I could give a rats but about the illegal , I
am only concerned with
VA. Employment and Contractor law NOT being enforced by the last R Administration and the wanna be R’s in November in Virginia.
OH no former Army Ranger , NARC Officer ,now state Senator wants to be Ltd Governor. How will he stop the Cocaine trafficker as I posted in Trump keeping his promises?
JLARC 427 Employee Misclassification.
Broaden your way of thinking for one minute, It is about the law .
The White & black man use this Administrative loophole to skirt child support.
Do you support deadbeat dads? No way in hell I do.
You want to stop a Sanctuary city, run for Mayor.
Not a fan of the weak Republican, and there is an abundance of them in Va.
Back to the issue our next Governor address and sign into law, watcha got on employee misclassification?
I only care about my family’s economical lifesource, law full construction.
I don’t officially speak for any of the candidates at this time, but I don’t think any of them support companies hiring illegals.
It is not just the “illegals”.
It is the illegal employment of individuals(some questionabe characters) employers committing payroll fraud and violating contractor law.
Oh let’s not forget the VEC
classifying unlicensed subcontractors from licensed contractors in their Audits as ” bona-fide independent contractors”,
That complicit act deregulates my law and her prohibited acts!
Now our next Governor will sign employee misclassification Law.What are the Republican candidates stance on the issue ,what would they be willing to sign? what loopholes will they allow?
I don’t see a more credible issue facing Virginia right than illegal employment , it hurts us all ,even those insurance companies .
There is an all out attack by the left on all fronts right now. We all need to support out elected Republicans in order to be able to eventually work on the issues of illegal employment. If you can see this is what is needed right now, sorry, you are being short sighted and you are going to be hurting, rather than helping you cause, by not supporting our elected Republicans that are in office now.
Please understand this is not an attack on Tuck.
Now Executive Order 24 by Dem. Governor McAuliffe is wonderful!
How would the Republican Candidates handle this EO , repeal it , make it stronger.
If stronger how.
Just the issue please.
Elections are about issues , not political factions.
A bunch of cheerleader is all that is done here.
No substance on current issue specifically on Virginia law being violated.
No measures by Va. Law makers to support my President
My President spoke at Liberty University twice.
The first time he spoke very clearly of stopping the cheaters, “make them play fair” he said.
Mark, this is where I hang hat. Now there is and has been recent legislation by Republicans in our GA to whittle away at required contractor and employer verifications.
How about that there SB483 by retired Navy Officer , Tidewater Builder Association Director, Senator Bill DeSteph, he wanted to make it against Va. law for VOSHA/DOLI Commissioner to notify DPOR of the use of unlicensed contractors. Self serving is all that bill was.
I expect that most of you have a job , receive a check every or every other week.
Not me , in home building I am looking for a new home to build about every couple of months, having to compete with illegal Contracting as DeSteph desired to protect.
I have 3 employees , all with wives and children to be concerned for.
So please forgive for not ignorantly supporting people that won’t produce legislation that protects legal employers and my President.
Is this the way of Republicans prosperity , to suck the equity out of wages produced by law abiding employers and employers.
I apologize for not being ore collegiate in my response , for I desire for republicans to be more educated on the issues .
Voting R just because the other is D is not good enough.
President Trump exist because of two reasons ,
1. Obama was week
2. Because Republicans are squishy (weak)
I love EO 24 , I bet it was the first time you heard of it or this issue, very complex .
Governor wannabes better get with the program.
Good luck with your pep rally and election machine, I’m seeking representation.
I understand your frustration (obsession?), but the vitriol hurled at the writer seems terribly misguided. Organize your people, and fight to make a change. Surely there is an existing advocacy group that you can glom onto, and lend them your considerable enthusiasm. Railing at the estimable Mr. Tucker may satisfy your need to blow off steam, but doesn’t get us an inch closer to the objective.
I voted for Cucinelli only to receive a letter on this issue saying it was not his job to repent the citizens.
I’m ok on this.
Santuary City or Santuary State?
HB 253 is another one of those bills that whittle away at employer “verification” requirements,
then seeks to impose the requirement on the State.
I may be humbly incorrect but doesn’t that make our goverment grow? What actually is it’s purpose?
Just another reason for the Forgotten men and women to question Republicans , just as my President did in the primary.
Yes, we all know about the illegals, but I trust that the Trump Admin will get tougher on employers.
Har har hardy har har.
