“Turnout was light, and interviews with voters at several Northern Virginia precincts showed little sign of the blue tide that swept Virginia a year ago, when the state played a pivotal role in the election of Barack Obama as the nation’s 44th president. Instead, many voters said they were distressed about the direction the country seemed to be taking under Obama’s leadership, and would vote for Republican candidates in part as a way to slow the pace of change.

“I lean to the right and [government] is going way too left for me,” said Dick West, 49, who works as a construction supervisor and said he mistrusted the federal government on both health-care reform and taxes. West said he voted for Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert F. McDonnell when he cast his ballot at Antietam Elementary School in the Occoquan district, in northern Prince William County.

At Clarendon United Methodist Church in Arlington County, lawyer John Malanchuk, 61, said he voted Republican to protect small businesses — and because he fears that Democratic-backed health reform could lead to insurance for illegal immigrants, even though proposed bills do not allow for such an option.” – Washington Post

It seems that the Virginians are sending a message to both their local leaders and to the white house. We all over America need to spread the same message as we cast our votes. We need to show our local leaders and the White House that we do not support the socialist trend that our leaders our taking us down. We need to show our leaders that we care about America and our Constitution. We need to stand up!
