The Virginia Thinking Institute is Endorsing Robert Sarvis for Governor

Robert Sarvis is clearly the best qualified candidate for Governor of Virginia. Sarvis is a 37-year-old businessman with degrees from Harvard, Cambridge, N.Y.U. and George Mason University. He is married with two daughters and his wife is a pediatrician. I had the opportunity to interview him today; you can listen to that interview below.

Unlike Terry McAuliffe, Sarvis understands the damage that crony capitalism does to the fabric of our nation. While McAuliffe, a Washington insider, has made no secret of his belief that business and government go "hand in hand," Sarvis knows that when government makes special provisions to support one taxpayer (like the special tax breaks that McAuliffe sought for his car company), all the rest of the taxpayers suffer. Unlike McAuliffe, he would fight against cronyism instead of actively promoting it.

Unlike Ken Cuccinnelli, he is not an ideologue. He understands that in a diverse nation we will not agree on everything and fighting over unanswerable questions will only polarize us rather than bring us together.

Sarvis understands that we must place restrictions on governmental power. More than any other candidate, he wants to protect our freedoms of choice and privacy and limit the coercive powers of the state. And he favors sensible tax policies and giving parents and teachers a much greater say in the education of their children instead of centralizing education authority with bureaucrats.

On November 5th, we can vote for more of the same. Or we can vote for a visionary who understands what Virginia needs to more forward. If you visit Sarvis's website and contrast his positions with the other two candidates, I think you will see that he has the best ideas for our state.

Surprised that The Virginia Thinking Institute would endorse a candidate that wants to further the expansion of ObamaCare thru Medicaid expansion in Virginia.

@Stephen Hamilton - that's not true. Sarvis is OPPOSED to Medicaid expansion. He says:

"Medicaid expansion comes with diminishing federal subsidies over time, meaning expansion now will lead inexorably to future state-level spending increases and tax increases and the crowding out of other spending priorities."

Do some research instead of spouting falsities.
