Gilchrist for Congress
By Mark Cooper-Basset
Mr. Cooper-Basset is an independent writer based in Orange County, CA.
I am pleased to endorse Jim Gilchrist for Congress to represent California's 48th Congressional District. Mr. Gilchrist epitomizes the Jeffersonian spirit of the citizen-politician. He identified illegal immigration as a grave problem. He took action by spearheading the Minutemen Project, which at the time of its inception, was a controversial and politically incorrect endeavor. And he oversaw the Project through its successful implementation in April 2005.
Whether one agrees with Mr. Gilchrist or not, one cannot help but admire his tenacity and his willingness to take an unambiguous stance.
