Elect Tom McClintock

After Charlie Brown got more votes than John Doolittle in Nevada County during the last election, I’m sure the Democrats and fence-sitters are thinking that Brown should be a shoo-in this time against Tom McClintock.

Why would a retired lieutenant colonel (Brown) even consider being a Democrat when 99 percent (approximately) of all military officers (active duty and retired) are card-carrying Republicans (they don’t like what happens to our military when a Democrat is president)? I am fearful that Brown would be just another foot soldier in Nancy Pelosi’s army of misfits.

McClintock, on the other hand, is an experienced politician and a true conservative. We’ve all witnessed the latest do-nothing move by Pelosi by taking Congress on a nice long vacation rather than deal with our obvious energy crisis. How tough is it for the Democrats to understand simple supply and demand when it comes to oil. Putin does. Chavez does. The Saudis do. But the Dems don’t get it. If you think we should drill where we know the oil is then don’t vote for any Democrat. Please, we need to send a strong message to Pelosi and her comrades. We need oil.
