Nick Popaditch is running for Congress. Previous occupation? Gunnery Sergeant, USMC. That patch he wears? Not preparing for Talk like a Pirate day, but rather a wound at Fallujah. His district? California’s 51st.
Oh yes, that district. Inland California tends to be right-leaning, but Imperial County is one big exception. It’s a poor expanse of desert along the Mexican border stretching from Arizona to San Diego County. Since redistricting shifted the seat’s number from 50 to 51, Democrat Bob Filner won by 19, 26, 27, and 48 points. This is not friendly territory, so it’s good we have a tough, strong, disciplined candidate like Nick Popaditch running there.
You can’t get upsets unless you have a good challenger ready, and Nick Popaditch is showing us how that is done.
The Democrats have noticed, too. A local left-leaning paper made fun of that wound he suffered in the war:
So he’s already attracting attention. Plus, he’s running on all the right principles we can support: limited government, strong national defense, strong border security, lower taxes, and less regulation to promote job growth. Imperial County is poor, and unemployment is worse than even the rest of California. This could have an impact.

Even American drinking water. | Read More »

Unfortunately, it was utterly unconvincing to me, because it doesn’t really address the core concerns that many #NeverTrump people have with Trump. The problem isn’t that Trump is a | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES That’s the ballgame folks. Donald Trump’s meteoric rise is complete. Here is Kasich’s official statement: There you have it. Kasich, who seems like a contender for Trump’s VP pick, is officially out. Like Sherman marching to the sea, Trump has successfully burned, destroyed, maimed and killed his way through the GOP, to what is probably stage one of the | Read More »
