Virginia Constitutional Conservatives

2018 Federal Candidate Survey

   

The Virginia Constitutional Conservatives is a growing group of citizens who believe passionately in preserving individual freedom and constitutional government.  

  Are you tired of not knowing where your Federal candidates really stand on critical  issues?
 
 We’ve all heard the political rhetoric that comes with it and the lies politicians tell to steal your vote.
 
Many politicians will try to steal your vote with vague statements and rhetoric.
 
Even worse, many candidates refuse to take a stand on key issues, hiding their views from the voters. 

  As such, the Virginia Constitutional Conservatives has sent our 2018 Federal Candidate Survey to all currently filed Federal Candidates.

Candidates were asked their stance on:

  • The Right to Keep and Bear Arms
  • Your 4th Amendment Right to Privacy
  • Monetary Policy
  • Taxes and Debt
  • Constitutional Powers
  • Your Right to Due Process
  • ObamaCare
  • Abortion

 
If candidates can’t answer basic  questions, they certainly can’t be trusted to vote correctly if elected. 

Here is the survey we submitted to those candidates for the 10th Congressional Seat and the United States Senate.
