Looks like a few McClintock supporters are already starting a move to get California Republican Tom McClintock a on the GOP’s 2012 presidential campaign.
Paul Gann and Ted Costa have launched a Draft McClintock website and are already putting the bug in everyone’s ear to take a serious look at their guy. www.DraftTom.com is live.
When Paul Gann and I worked to pass Prop 13 here in California back in 1978 we had no idea what a major tax revolt it would start across the country, with the final triumph being the election of Ronald Reagan to the office of President! Well, now California and our county are facing even greater challenges and again a strong voice is being heard from California!
Congressman Tom McClintock has been sounding the fiscal alarms in Washington, warning them about how financial recklessness has driven California to the point of bankruptcy and defending our US Constitution at every turn with a powerful voice of reason to oppose government run healthcare, bail-outs, massive new energy taxes and the lack of security on our southern border.
Over 1.2 MILLION people have listened to the powerful response that Congressman McClintock recently gave to Mexican President Calderon when he actually received a standing ovation from the Democrats in the House Chamber where he dared to state his opposition to OUR immigration laws! IF you agree with me that it is time to take this battle to the next level, then please take a moment to watch this short video and join with thousand of your fellow Americans in signing our petition to Congressman McClintock!
Ted Costa is President of People’s Advocate, Inc. (www.peoplesadvocate.org) a group founded by Paul Gann.
So, that is at least one draft-my-guy movement in the political winds. There’s sure to be more to come but the McClintock folks are out of the gate early.
