George Allen on Families & Children

Republican Senate Challenger


Virginia families are under stress as never before

The family is the backbone of our society. Virginia families are under stress as never before in our history, due to a declining economy, falling home values, rising prices and government overreach. Also, wrenching social changes are weakening the foundation that the family is to America's vitality and promise.

We must adhere to the foundational principles of freedom, opportunity for all, and personal responsibility for ourselves and our families, rather than accept dictates, redistribution and dependency on government.

We need to take control of our own American destiny. The good news is that there are proven solutions and achievable reforms to reinvigorate the entrepreneurial spirit of America.

That's why I want to offer my commitment to you, Virginia's families: to work to reverse the overexpansion of government, reduce the tremendous debt levied against our children, protect innocent life, preserve property rights, and stand for families on a range of other crucial issues.

Allen scores 100% by the Christian Coalition on family issues

The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pat Robertson to give Christians a voice in government. We represent millions of people of faith and enable them to have a strong, unified voice in the conversation we call democracy.

    Our Five-Fold Mission:
  1. Represent the pro-family point of view before local councils, school boards, state legislatures, and Congress
  2. Speak out in the public arena and in the media
  3. Train leaders for effective social and political action
  4. Inform pro-family voters about timely issues and legislation
  5. Protest anti-Christian bigotry and defend the rights of people of faith.
Our ratings are based on the votes the organization considered most important; the numbers reflect the percentage of time the representative voted the organization's preferred position.
