Fall Elections 2010 - #2322 - National Issues Forum - Jefferson Area Tea Party, Charlottesville, Va.

The Jefferson Area Tea Party will host a National Issues Forum on Friday, October 29 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Lane Auditorium in the Albemarle County Office Building in Charlottesville.  At its three public meetings this summer, the JATP gave each of the three VA-5 congressional candidates an individual, one-hour platform to discuss their positions and field questions. Now it continues its effort to educate voters by addressing the critical issues which affect us all from the Tea Party perspective.  A dynamic and distinguished panel will speak on several topics which include:  Business and Jobs: Laurence Verga; Constitutionally Limited Government: Robert Tracinski, Editor and Publisher of The Intellectual Activist; Economy and Taxes: David Marotta, President of Marotta Wealth Management;  Energy and the Environment: Dr. Charles Battig, Piedmont Chapter President of Virginia SEEE (Scientists and Engineers for Energy and Environment);  Federal Impact on Local Government: Rob Schilling, former Charlottesville City Councilman and host of "The Schilling Show" (WINA 1070-AM);  Health Care Legislation: Alex Cortes, Chairman of DeFundIt.org.


Each panelist will speak for five minutes on the issue he is representing, then the panel will answer questions posed by the audience for approximately forty-five minutes to the end of the forum.  The forum is free and open to the public. We especially encourage undecided voters to get and consider this valuable information in preparation for the November 2 congressional election. Jefferson Area Tea Party web site......

What's at Stake: The Importance of the Election by Hank Martin - Schilling Show Blog - This upcoming election, as are all of the elections to follow in the near future, will be of unprecedented proportions. Any one who knows me, or has ever known me, knows the values to which I have chosen to subscribe. They are apparent in how I have lived my life, in all that I say and write. That having been said, I also know that there is enough blame to go around. The liberal left has taken us on a course that is destructive, and the conservative right has lacked the sufficient courage and cohesion to prevent it. All of this can be analyzed and dissected later. When it is all said and done, the primary concern to me when I enter that voting booth in a few days, and the question that I will most be burdened with is this; what type of world do I want my sons to grow up in? When I am dust in the ground, what kind of life do I want to leave behind? My allegiance will not be to any party or ideology. It will not be an emotional nor political nor societal nor ideological statement. As I cast my vote, I will have two things resonating through the recesses of my mind, my two sons, and the legacy of my generation.  Read more.........
