For whom should you vote? Dave Brat offers only Tea Party rhetoric. He won’t face anyone in real debate. Jack Trammell has appeared all over the 7th District answering all questions directly, honestly, intelligently and with care and concern.

And, you can vote for him twice — once for the term starting in January 2015 and again as the candidate to fill Eric Cantor’s unexpired term — vacant since Aug 18.

I read through Dave Brat’s campaign flyer, website and editorials from his supports, and for the most part, I was not very impressed and somewhat confused on the stance he is taking on some issue which seems to be contrary to Republican ideology and even common sense.

Two-hundred-thirty-three years ago that question would have been rather easy to answer — Oct. 19, 1781 was the date that General Charles Lord Cornwallis surrendered the British forces at Yorktown, Virginia to General Benjamin Lincoln, General Washington’s second in command.
Last week, I wrote about Joel Salatin’s book “Everything I Want to Do is Illegal.” The book argues that food safety laws in many cases do very little to protect people, but instead do a great deal to kill off or stifle entrepreneurship, homemade artisanal foods and cottage food operations.
Nov. 4 is just around the corner, so I would like folks in the 7th District to know about the candidates for the House of Representatives, Dave Brat (Republican) and Jack Trammell ( Democrat).
