Regarding "Lawmaker's 'how to slap Washington' strategy" – as Virginia goes, so goes the nation?
The sovereign state of Virginia rises to confront the despotism harboring on the banks of the Potomac. The Washington establishment, circling the Constitution and the states like jackals, flashed their razor-sharp fangs in the NDAA (monstrous offspring of Carl Levin, John McCain and Obama). But Virginia – the birthplace of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence – reacted swiftly to federal usurpation and abuse of power. No tyrannical regime in Washington, D.C., will slay the sovereign states as long as there are Virginias.
