Meeting Notes: Sep 25, 2012

Published September 26, 2012

This was an inspirational meeting, with important election-day planning and brief but important presentations.

Delegate Scott Lingamfelter – a retired U.S. Army colonel – spoke from the heart about the vital importance of the upcoming election to the preservation of our nation’s founding principles. He reminded us of the courage displayed on the Normandy beachhead on D-Day in 1944, and called us to display similar courage in the days ahead, with the goal of establishing a new beachhead: one of restoring the Founders’ vision.  He imagined his grandchildren asking him one day, “Granddad, what did you do during The Great Constitutional Crisis?”

Del. Lingamfelter highlighted three critically important facts relating to the upcoming election, in the form of numbers:

  1. 23 million: the number of unemployed looking for work, in the seemingly endless Great Recession underway since President Obama took office
  2. $716 Billion: the amount of money President Obama has stolen from Medicare, to fund Obamacare
  3. $16 Trillion: the current Federal Debt, which President Obama has been largely responsible for accumulating during his administration, and which threatens our entire economy and the future of our children and grandchildren.

Rick Buchanan of Fauquier County discussed the importance of precinct organization and GOTV door-knocking, especially in close elections. He gave examples from  the recent Virginia U.S. Senate primary race, in which determined GOTV activities in several Northern Virginia precincts reversed the overall voting percentages.
