Jim Gilchrist, MBA Biography

Title:
Founder and President of The Minuteman Project
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“What I don’t want is [organizations] like the ACLU getting their influence into legislation – while they claim they have as much right as you or I, or anyone else to have input… I disagree with their premise, and their premise is really communism, which is really ignoring that commandment which says thou shalt not steal, which I feel communists are a bunch of thieves. That’s pretty much what I see – that’s kind of harsh language, but I really feel that way.”
