In a sea of gloomy days that largely constitute 2021, November 2 was one of the brightest days of the year, no matter what the physical weather may have been outside.
And that brightness can be directly attributed to the undisputed patriotism on display across the nation, notably in Virginia, which has long since turned into a Democrat stronghold.
However, apparently even left-leaning residents reach a limit when it comes to egregious abuses in the public school system, not to mention a host of other issues uniquely associated with the far left.
Which is precisely why the election of Winsome Sears as the first lieutenant governor of color is such a favorable harbinger for the potential political future to come.
A staunch conservative, Sears expressed a high level of gratitude for the support that she received, especially when running as a conservative in a deep blue state.
“I am at a loss for words for the first time in my life … So, I’m here because of you. I’m here because you voted for me, I’m here because you put your trust in me. That’s the only reason I’m here. Thank you.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Humility. One of the greatest virtues a leader can demonstrate, yet one of the attributes least seldom displayed throughout the swamp.
Fortunately, voters with integrity who swept Sears into power have also swept back in a modicum of decorum into politics.
In addition, they’ve also swept attention back to legal immigration, and how legal immigration has been a blessing to the nation, as evidenced by Sears herself.
“I am not even first-generation American … When I joined the Marine Corps, I was still a Jamaican. But this country had done so much for me, I was willing to die for this country.” [Source: The Blaze]
Take that, snowflakes.
Snowflakes apparently can’t take a final exam in college when Trump wins an election, yet Sears is savvy enough to realize what a gift the United States is as a nation … and how important it is not to squander that gift.
Which is precisely why she calls out “representatives” intent on dividing, rather than uniting, America.
“I say to you, there are some who want to divide us and we must not let that happen … They would like us to believe we are back in 1963, when my father came. We can live where we want, we can eat where we want, we own the water fountains. We have had a black president elected not once but twice and here I am living proof. In case you haven’t noticed, I am black and I have been black all my life.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Thank you, Ms. Sears, for being so frank and direct about the reality of the American Dream.
One can only hope that the media will not mercilessly assail Sears in the same way that it did for Senator Scott, but since being a conservative seems to be the greatest offense of all, virtually anyone can be subject to trial by media.
Fortunately, however, Sears, along with Youngkin, will (in all likelihood) jointly ignore the media in favor of working towards a favorable future for Virginians across the state.
Just consider their commentary below.
“We’re going to have safer neighborhoods, safer communities, and our children are going to get a good education. Because education lifted my father out of poverty, education lifted me out of poverty, education will lift us all out of poverty. We must have marketable skills so that our children cannot just survive but they will thrive, and they will create generational wealth. That’s what this is about.” [Source: The Blaze]
Education, in other words, is the means through which Americans can achieve the American dream, which Sears also reminds the audience of in her powerful speech.
“I’m telling you that what you are looking at is the American dream.” [Source: The Blaze]
