I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

The Minuteman and the Constitution Party

The inability or unwillingness of politicians both Republican and Democrat to understand why people are so enraged over will encourage the entrance of third party candidates. Such is the reason behind talk that Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project will seek the office of President through the Constitution Party. Although polls show a third party candidate that has a secure border, anti illegal immigration platform would be competitive, the office of President may not be the most advantageous position to seek. Not that the major parties have shown they have any dynamic candidates, but it's still too early to tell. Mr. Gilchrist has said as much. His initial statement alluded to a run only if John McCain ran.

I don't see this as an eventuality. John McCain may be enjoying the support of the MSM and various other nit wits and Democrats, but the Republican base sees him for what he is, a kook. Besides, the 2008 election is too far in the future to begin to handicap at this point. Mr. Gilchrist has some political experience and should use it to seek an office that would better serve one who has a central platform issue. His run for Congress in the 48th district of California only pulled a 25.5% vote, but for a third party candidate before the latest illegal immigrant rallies that is quite impressive. It is unfortunate that it is too late for him to move to Arizona and run for Governor. Gov. Janet Napolitano has played games with the border issue talking tough but vetoing any tough legislation. That would be an ideal position to launch his political aspirations along with the Constitution Party's.

In the mean time actually building a fence on the border would make a statement that the politicians could not ignore. More importantly they may jump on the band wagon making a run for office by Mr. Gilchrist unnecessary. Anyone entering into the world of elective office faces certain peril. It is a corrupting environment that has marginalized the best of people.

The best place for this fella to get his point made is in the primaries as a candidate for one of the "big two". Otherwise he may very well cause the election of the greater evil.
