Electing the most qualified candidate as leader is the aspiration of all
democratic societies and political systems. Trusting America will not prove
to be an exception,
pleased to endorse Duncan Hunter for President for five compelling reasons.
Firstly, a nation at war needs a war-time President. To protect our national
interest, America must win in Iraq and Afghanistan, and against the rise of Islamic
terrorism and Iran. While John McCain's 5½ years as a POW in Hanoi
during the Vietnam War proves his
valor, Duncan Hunter's 26 years on the House Armed Services Committee, which he
chaired, is more directly applicable to leading a nation engaged in a complex,
Secondly, the Hunter candidacy isn't a creation of political strategists. Most
of the candidates leading in the polls have discrepancies between their present
claims and past record. Some say they changed their minds recently. Others claim
lapses in memory. All are stretching their persona and platforms to broaden
their appeal, as advised. Duncan Hunter has neither political handlers nor such
discrepancies, and is a refreshingly genuine exception to the norm.
Thirdly, Duncan Hunter is a man of action. He wanted secure borders, so he built
a double fence along the Mexican border. He wanted to protect life and marriage,
so he authored multiple bills to protect them. He wanted to protect the country,
so he fought in the Vietnam War, returned with a Bronze Star, and sent his son
to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. Actions speak louder than words, and Duncan Hunter's
actions speak the loudest.
Fourthly, Duncan Hunter is the most dependable person to protect the
Judeo-Christian foundation of America. While the other conservative candidates'
Supreme Court Justice nominations may be open to speculation and doubts, Duncan
Hunter's uncompromised conservative social values record precludes the need for
Fifthly, Congressman Hunter's low poll ratings can be reversed fairly quickly.
Little can be done about low poll numbers caused by a weak candidacy, which
isn't the case with Hunter. Most conservative political commentators rave about
Hunter's presidential qualifications yet remain reluctant to support his
candidacy, citing the lack of momentum behind it. A stampeding herd can be
redirected by a few at the front stepping out with conviction, and the sudden
rise of the Huckabee candidacy has shown how quickly the conservative vote can be
redirected. That vote is still largely uncommitted.
Duncan Hunter isn't as suave, funny, telegenic or rich as some of the other
candidates. But based on the qualities becoming a President,
Duncan Hunter is the most qualified person to lead America for at least the next
In accepting our endorsement, Congressman Hunter highlighted,
"Thank you for your endorsement of my campaign based on my
qualifications and conservative positions of providing a strong national defense
and secure borders. As president I will work to restore opportunity for the
American worker. I will bring high paying jobs back to this country by stopping
China from cheating on trade. By restoring economic opportunity for the next
generation we re-gain the majority position in U.S. politics. Recent world
events point to the need for conservatives to choose a nominee who is ready on
day one to lead. I am grateful that you have chosen me as that candidate."
