Roanoke Times is smoking Potts

The Roanoke Times finally finds a man who loves taxes as much as they do.

Leaders are elected to take the broad view, to weigh overall cost and benefits to society, and make reasoned decisions for the long-term public good. They have to make the call, then make the case to voters.

Is no prospective leader prepared to do this?

There is one.

Independent gubernatorial candidate Russ Potts, state senator from up the valley in Winchester..."

Norm, Will, John, Sic Semper, Lars -- take 'er away.

UPDATE: Commonwealth Watch has apparently caught the Roanoke Times' knight errant Russ Potts in a big lie about not supporting referendums. Why is the MSM always behind the curve on these things?
