A Brief Commentary - Jamie Radtke will win Virginia

Some say it’s a David and Goliath type battle as Jamie Radtke takes on George Allen for the Senate Republican nomination (and probably Kaine in the election) and that is why Mrs. Radtke has a better chance of winning than most pundits think because we all like underdogs and are fed up with Goliaths. With a solid aim at the giants that will be in this race (two ex-governor’s on both sides of the aisle,) Radtke can pull off the upset and move Virginia politics to a genuine conservative side and change the landscape for potential new “would-be” candidates for future races with a victory by staying on message and mobilizing her Tea Party base. With solid Tea party “street cred” behind her, Mrs. Radtke will be able to both attack the Democrats and the old guard Republican machine in Virginia, at the same time, tapping into the national discontent, as well as, those within the GOP party that are tired of the same retread candidates that the established GOP seems unable or unwilling to let go. When most people say that we should throw all the bums out in D.C. and fill Congress with newbies, few actually mean we should send people to Capitol Hill that have no political experience. What we need in D.C. rather, are smart, common sense people with fresh and convicted ideas that will move the country forward in the image that they hold dear and fight with conviction and backbone to make those ideals policy. Jaime Radtke is no novice to politics having worked for the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, American Management Systems consulting to the Virginia Department of Taxation, VCAP and her own campaign consulting company Sovereign Consulting but she is a new public voice in the muddy waters of RINOS versus conservatives versus liberal versus socialist etc. Having heard Jaime speak several times and briefly talking with her on others, one thing is very clear, Jamie is a person of conviction who is speaking from her briefs and not from what is politically expedient at the time to get elected. In a nutshell, Jaime is uniquely placed as a political insiders and outsider simultaneously and if played right can be swept into office as a new fresh candidate without needing to “ramp up” to be effective as a freshman Senator; which is a good thing in what will be an arduous 2012 Senator session. Jaime gained traction when she became the President of Richmond Tea Party and Chairwoman of the Federation of Virginia Tea Party Patriots. The core principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, free markets, and virtue and accountability has rung true to many Americans and Virginians and was the driving force of the Tea Party movement during the runaway spending and historic deficits over the last several years and Mrs. Radtke has been at the forefront of that movement for several years now at the grassroots level where campaigns are won and also on the national scene.
If Jaime Radtke sticks to her pledges to: Oppose raising the federal debt ceiling, ending the massive federal deficits, reforming entitlement and more fair tax structure her platform will resonate with Virginians across the board and she will have a shot to come out of this year’s elections as Virginia’s newest Senator. The key for her victory is to use her platform as a way to help all Virginians experience a better, more secure future through solid conservative ideals and following through with campaign promises and stump speech assurances (something retread candidates and career politicians never seem to do.) Mrs. Radtke cannot get mixed up in the status quo of incremental change seen as radical but radical policies that will be seen as revolutionary. It’s a simple formula but one that must be adhered too, Jaime Radtke needs to bee who she is and let the voters know that she’s not like other candidates, she’s a new, smart, common sense person with fresh and convicted ideas that will move the country forward to a more secure and prosperous future than we are experiencing now….this is a quick commentary, more to come.
