Elections do not give us black and white choices. Since we always elect a mischief maker of some sort, we should wonder about the wisdom of people who want to give politicians any more power than absolutely necessary. That’s why I voted (in early voting) for Stewart instead of Kaine. When the Federal Government is already too powerful, Kaine is determined to further increase its powers.
What’s the difference between Stewart and Kaine? Don’t both men seem to be ruled by their ambitions? Because he something of a rascal, Stewart is not especially popular with members of the Prince William County Republican Party. However, I suspect the vast majority will vote for him. Both men are know quantities to the folks in Prince William County, and Tim Kaine is that much worse.
What is most aggravating about Stewart? He is trying to ride Donald Trump’s coattails into office, and he doesn’t actually represent Trump all that well.
What is the difference between Stewart and Trump? Well, I think Trump is just being who he is. Look at the assault the Trump administration has endured. An empty suit would have crumpled long ago.
Stewart, on the other hand, desperately wants to be like Trump. Unfortunately, Stewart seems to have Trump’s frankness and occasional intemperance confused with a taking no prisoners combativeness. Therefore, unlike Trump, whose love of America is more obvious, Stewart is more likely to be perceived as a bully.
Given all that, why is Kaine a worse choice? Unlike Kaine, if he wins the election, Stewart will vote with Republicans and Trump’s agenda. Check out VOTER GUIDES AND CONGRESSIONAL SCORECARDS. This page, compiled by the, Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance, lists a variety of voter guides. Checking out some of these guides is the quickest way to determine the differences between the way these two men will represent Virginia in the Senate.
Still curious? Do you want to see how these guys perform?
Here is the July 21, 2018 Virginia Senate Debate between Kaine and Stewart.
