Nick Popaditch running for Representative for CA51 opens his debate with the incumbent Pelosi-bot Bob Filner by expressing his four qualifications for legislation.

1.What does his constituancy want?
2. Is it Constitutional?
3. Is it moral?
4. Is it ethical?

Now normally when a politician says anything remotely resembling this, I feel it is time to grab your wallet and jump into a bomb shelter. However Gunny Pop is a retired (not ex) Marine Gunnery Sergeant with a Silver Star, so I’m prepared to take him at his word (officers are occasionally political weasels but senior non-coms usually say exactly what they mean). And it is possibly the best concise statement of what a Representative should be doing that I’ve ever heard actually proposed.

    Thanks for posting this about Nick “Gunny Pop” Popaditch.

    PS. Although the media is ignoring this race, Filner is not. Word is that he and his staff are VERY worried. I think his internal polling is keeping him up at night.

    You DO NOT need to live in his district to help Nick Popaditch win. Here is how you can help (I am copying some of this from a fellow poster on another blog; he or she captured it spot on):

    ** If you live in the 51st District in California: Call his campaign office ( and get a sign for your yard, a bumper sticker, and ask your neighbors and co-workers to do the same. DO IT TODAY.

    ** WHO TO ENCOURAGE: Don’t waste time talking to those who are firm Leftocrats. Talk to people who DO NOT usually vote and the independents. TURN THEM OUT TO VOTE. This is also where races are won and lost.

    ** TALK to your neighbors. Get them involved. Tell them why Nick needs to win and why it is important for your district.

    ** EMAIL this video clip/page link to your entire email database, and ask them to send Nick ten bucks.

    ** Host a house party and invite Nick. Yes, HE WILL COME.

    ** Call everyone you know–EVERYONE–and make sure they are registered, and then organize RIDES TO THE POLLS. This is important regardless of where you live. REALLY important. This wins elections, folks. Do this wherever you live for the Republican candidate in your district.

    ** Call family and friends who live OUT of the district and ask them to send $5.00, $10.00 . . . $100.00 . … ANYTHING they can to Nick. They can still help him win.

    Finally, if you want to learn about Nick and his family, read his book ONCE A MARINE. ( Buy it new, buy it used, get it at the library, order it from us-–I don’t care where you get it. Just READ IT. Send copies to friends and ask them to pass it around. It will answer all your questions about this man and his character.

    Let’s take back our country. We can do this, but only if we all work together and support Nick with money and turnout.


    ** Disclaimer: I am the publisher of his book “Once a Marine,” and since that time have become a good friend of the Popaditch family. I am proud to be able to say that, and proud to be working for his election to Congress.
