Send It, They'll Spend It

In an op-ed in today’s Washington Times, Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-Prince William and Fauquier Counties) provides electoral advice for his fellow Republicans. Essentially, his advice was to urge a return to more conservative government, i.e., less taxes and less government. In his own words, Lingamfelter’s said:

Republicans have wandered from the winning path ably blazed by Ronald Reagan and have paid a price.

Scott also wrote about the coalition built by former President Ronald Reagan – “conservative Republicans, Democrats, and independents.” He went on to write:

To that end, (Reagan) proposed a clear conservative course: a strong defense to protect America from our adversaries, a less burdensome government so free enterprise could thrive and lower taxes so that families could have a higher standard of living within a robust economy. In the wake of his success, the conservative coalition he built went on to elect Republican majorities in state legislatures around the country, including here in Virginia.

Sound advice indeed! By the way, the subject of this post is a take-off on a quote of retiring Virginia Delegate Vince Callahan (R-McLean) in the op-ed, which was:

“If you send it, we will spend it.”
