This time from the political arm of the nation’s largest Taxpayer’s group. From Marketwatch:

The National Taxpayers Union Campaign Fund (NTUCF), the political action arm of the 362,000-member National Taxpayers Union (NTU), today announced it has endorsed former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore (R) for the state’s U.S. Senate seat.

“When he held Virginia’s executive position, Jim Gilmore time and again proved his commitment to reduce the burden on taxpayers,” NTUCF President Duane Parde said. “He espoused pro-growth economic policies, chief among them cuts in the state’s dreaded car tax, which inspired many similar platforms across the country.”
Gilmore, who also served as Virginia’s Attorney General, emerged as a national leader in the fight against predatory Internet taxes. He’s expressed strong opposition to the recent $700 billion bailout of the financial industry. Gilmore’s Democratic opponent, meanwhile, supports the bailout package, along with a number of other damaging policies, such as cap-and-trade energy legislation, expensive new infrastructure programs, and large tax hikes.
This is just another group that recognizes that Jim Gilmore realizes that government has to establish and maintain the trust and consent of the people in governance, while Mark Warner just sees the people as a means to an end. To put another way, Gilmore believes politicians should view the people as a bank offering an interest free loan rather than a piggybank to be smashed and raided at any time.
