Virginia’s Former-Governor George Allen again rises to defend Right To Work and the principles of liberty embraced by our Founding Fathers against attacks from the Obama Administration and the acquiescent U.S. Senate.
It is time for all freedom-loving people to stand up against the forces of tyranny that have taken hold of numerous government agencies such as the NLRB. It is time that elected officials and candidates for office to declare their positions for or against individual liberty. If for liberty, then they must act to oppose the tyranny of forced unionism and its suppression of the individual. (For Governor Allen’s full Op-Ed in Politico click here.)
President Thomas Jefferson defined the sum of good government as, “a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.”
Those words are the uplifting principles of a free society.
Unfortunately these principles are being ignored by the powers in Washington.
Virginia deserves leaders unafraid to speak out against this administration, the federal bureaucracy and the union bosses who seek to undermine our free market economy and who will fight for Virginia’s working families.
The National Labor Relations Board’s complaint against Boeing’s locating some production facilities in South Carolina is an attack on the founding principles of our country. It’s also an attack on the freedom and competitiveness of every state with right-to-work laws — including Virginia.
It is the responsibility of Washington leaders and candidates running for office to speak out against the dangerous precedent of the NLRB’s assault on the liberty of working men and women everywhere and the rights and prerogatives of the people in the States.
It’s time for this over-reaching federal government to get out of our lives and stop encroaching on the economic freedom of Virginia — and all right-to-work states.
