Virginia State Motto - "Sic Semper Tyrannis"

"Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time." ~ Sir Winston Churchill

I am a Kansan at heart. But, I am proud and happy to claim Virginia as my adopted home. The people here are polite and friendly. And patriotic.

Bless their hearts, that's only part of what I love about Virginians.

Now, here is yet another reason to be proud of Virginia:

Governor Bob McDonnell has signed a bill exempting Virginians from Obama's ambitious and un-Constitutional health reform bill.

From the article:
"This is a historic unfunded mandate on the people of Virginia," McDonnell said at a signing ceremony attended by the sponsors of the bills. "We don't believe that the United States Congress should mandate the purchase of services."
Also, the state Attorney general has filed suit alleging, "the federal health care legislation violates this Virginia bill and the interstate commerce clause, among other things."

The bill passed by wide margins in both houses.

So this means not only Republican lawmakers oppose Obamakare, so do the majority of the Democrats in Virginia.

Thirteen other states have joined a Florida lawsuit challenging the Constitutionality of Obama's health care legislation. Whether these actions succeed or not in helping to defeat Socialism in Virginia, one thing seems abundantly clear:

There will be a major change in leadership in Washington in November.

And it couldn't come too soon.
