We believe that the Republican Party needs to expand its agenda to attract more urban and suburban voters — and we believe that motorist rights should be a key part of the Party’s agenda. Vehicles are a necessity for many Virginians, and our laws should set a high threshold that must be met before a vehicle can be seized or the owner barred from driving it. For too long, an alliance of government and corporate interest coalitions have used Virginia law to shake down unsuspecting motorists.
The Motorist Bill of Rights would not only fight crony capitalism but help restore integrity and trust in government.
Virginia Republicans’ recent victories present the Party with enormous opportunities to pursue agenda items that can satisfy our electorate and cement our electoral gains; these opportunities must be seized.
Although this year’s elections went well, Republicans must not be lulled into a sense of complacency.
