In Virginia's 7th Congressional district, where I live, Eric Cantor is our representative. He is a rising star in the Republican party, having been named Chief Deputy Majority Whip after only one term in Congress. He has been rated 7% by the ACLU, indicating his typically Republican aversion to civil rights and 0% by the League of Conservation Voters, demonstrating he has done nothing positive for the environment. 0% from NARAL. Voted in lockstep with every failed pet project that the Bush administration has put before Congress. And, as the only Jewish Republican in the House, he has stood in forceful support of Bush's unquestioning backing of all things Israel and its concomitant hatred of all things Muslim.
Enter Jim Nachman.
Nachman's campaign site, which you can view here, gives you all the necessary information on all of his views. He is running on a typical 2006 broad Democratic platform against the Iraq war, ensuring affordable health care, education, national security, and the classic chestnut anti-corruption. In a quick review of the more in-depth analyses of his views, he stands for practically everything Cantor supports, from stem cells to border fences to Cantor's destructive environmental policies.
If you live in the 7th district, get out there and vote for Nachman. Cantor has voted with the Bush administration 98% of the time and no longer represents what Virginia or America stands for. It is time for him to be removed.
