For those of you who are still hungover at the fact Sen. John "F--- You" McCain is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, this is going to be the first in occasional posts about those conservative Republicans running for offices down ticket.
Today, I want to introduce you to California state senator, Tom McClintock http://tommcclintock.com/ who is the Republican nominee for congress in the fourth district.
Mr. McClintock is one of those first elected to the California state assembly in 1982, during the Reagan Revolution era.
Mr. McClintock has always fought for small government, lower taxes and for tax reform.
And, this is Mr. McClintock's first run at Washington office.
On the issues, he is spot on.
Take illegal immigration. Mr. McClintock favors completing the border fence and enforcing the laws that we already have on the books. In other words, we do not need so-called "comprehensive immigration reform" so much as we need to keep our borders secure and then plan a strategy that may include guest workers. Call his position the Laura Ingraham position http://lauraingraham.com.
On defense issues, the McClintock position is the Ronald Reagan position, Peace Through Strength. One of the fundamental reasons I believe that the United States has not been attacked again on American soil by the Islamofacsist radicals is because they know that even a poll-weakened President Bush will fight back and hard. And, if the United States military is feared, that is one way to keep the Islamofacsists on the run.
An issue that is near and dear to my heart is education. I am so tired of the federal government taking more and more decisions about education away from the local parents and school boards, which the people elect. Mr. McClintock is a strong advocate of local control of education. It is local control and knowledge that can lead to some serious education reforms that would be in the best interests of parents and students, not the teacher's unions.
The bottom line is that Mr. McClintock is a true conservative. He is a product of and an unashamed supporter of the conservative ideas that Ronald Reagan espoused throughout his political life. He will be a leader of conservatives in congress.
That is why I am supporting Tom McClintock for the California fourth congressional district. And, you can too by going over to his website and make a donation. He will need all the money he can get because the Democrats are gunning for this district.
Let's win one for the Gipper here with Tom McClintock!
