A history lesson is in order

To the Editor:

Can anyone name a dictator that came to power without disarming the people first? No? That’s because people who are armed cannot be enslaved.

• Vladimir Lenin stated that the best way to gain power over the people is to gain control of their health care.

• The Founding Fathers believed that freedom would not long survive in America if people turned away from God.

So what is going on today? We have an administration in Washington determined to ban gun ownership in defiance of the Second Amendment, a president who adamantly pushed government controlled health care and a movement to erase any mention of God from the national consciousness.

On Nov. 5, Virginians will have a choice to make. On the one hand a liberal Democrat Terry McAuliffe who opposes gun ownership and supports the expansion of government-controlled health care. On the other hand, a conservative Republican, Ken Cuccinelli, who defends gun ownership and the first attorney general to sue the government over Obamacare.

The choice is obvious. The handwriting is on the wall and time is running out for America, the land of the free.
