Gen. John DouglassOur 5th District candidate for Congress, John Douglass, was recently profiled in Time Magazine.

Here is an excerpt:

John Douglass–has a resume that would lead to you to think he’s a Republican: he’s a retired Air Force general, a military staffer on Ronald Reagan’s National Security Council, a former Under Secretary of the Navy, a military intelligence and technology expert. But he’s a Democrat, running in Virginia’s 5th district. We met at a strawberry social, just outside of Charlottesville. “I’m strongly influenced by what I saw in the Reagan White House as we began to negotiate the end of the Cold War. I believe that it’s now time–and we now have the technology–to focus on domestic defense rather than overseas operations. We need to concentrate more on our ports and borders. I mean, if the druggies can get stuff through, why can’t terrorists? We need to concentrate more technology on our borders–mostly for national security purposes, to be sure our security isn’t breeched, but I think we would also see big reductions in the amount of drugs and illegals crossing the border.”
