Rick Green works for David Barton’s organization, Wallbuilders, and is his co-host on Barton’s radio show, Wallbuilders Live. He also really wants his boss to be a U.S. Senator. On Facebook today, Green wrote:
There is a lot of talk out there about people wanting David Barton to run for the U.S. Senate. Let’s find out how true that is. If you want to see it happen, then take 2 seconds to like the page below, or 30 seconds to leave a post about why you think he’d be a good U.S. Senator alongside Ted Cruz fighting to restore our constitutional republic.
Just imagine what that would be like. Imagine the progress we could make towards saving our nation.
If the draft page gets 5K likes in just a few days, then we’ll know people want him to run. So if you’d like to see it happen, click like, click share, and start spreading the word. Don’t just like my post, go to the Draft David Barton for Senate page and like it. https://www.facebook.com/DavidBartonforAmerica.
In this post, Green links to another page on Facebook — Draft David Barton for Senate — which will apparently serve as a kind of fleece to know whether or not Barton should run. Currently, the page has 558 likes (in about 11 hours) with the goal being 5,000 within “a few days.”
Out of 1.11 billion monthly active Facebook users, 5,000 likes will trigger a challenge to conservative GOP Senator John Cornyn.
Green’s page is a new one; the original draft Barton group is up to 1700 members.
UPDATE: Glenn Beck is imagining and apparently he likes the idea.
