FROM THE EDITOR
Duncan Hunter, The Best Choice
by JR Dieckmann

Duncan Hunter was the guest of Glenn Beck on his TV program for a full hour Friday night. After seeing this interview I am convinced that Hunter would be the best choice for President of the United States in 2008. I still like Fred Thompson but Hunter seems to display more interest and enthusiasm for the job. He was comfortable answering any question asked by Beck with spontaneous, direct, definitive answers. His position on issues has remained consistent no matter who he is talking to.

As a veteran of Vietnam and ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, and chairman of that committee for 4 years, Duncan is in a position to know about security and defense issues facing our country. He loves this country and will defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic to his dying breath.

He strongly believes in the conservative principles of smaller federal government and personal liberty and rights. He supports the 2nd Amendment and the people’s right to own firearms. There will be no gun control laws under a Hunter Administration.

Hunter opposes globalism and global socialism. He supports American independence, but not isolationism. He believes that America should be an equal partner in business deals with other countries, but that those deals should benefit America economically and be made with countries who support American ideology.

He strongly disagrees with the Bush policy on Mexico and giving into anything Mexico wants as Bush has been doing. If Mexico wants anything from us under a Hunter Administration they are going to have to earn it by respecting our borders, immigration policy, and our need to defend ourselves against our enemies elsewhere in the world.

Duncan is fighting hard in Congress to get his border fence bill implemented. The Secure Fence Act calls for 842 miles of double fence and was passed into law last year. DHS has $850 million already set aside for the project, that’s over a million dollars per mile. Hunter is pushing for independent contractors to take over the construction and could have the fence built in 6 months. He says there is simply no will in Washington or the White House to complete the project and at the rate they are going it will take 20 years to complete.

Rep. Hunter objects to the unbalanced foreign trade policy where U.S. goods are taxed when entering foreign countries, but not good from those countries entering the U.S. He wants a “mirror policy” where any taxes imposed on U.S. goods would be met with a mirror tax on foreign goods entering the U.S. to help make fair trade fair and decrease the trade deficit. He understand economic principles of currency manipulation and has co-authored the Hunter-Ryan bill to deal with China’s illegal manipulation of trade currency, the profits of which are being used for large expansions of China’s military and weapons systems which eventually may be used against us.

Congressman Hunter strongly opposes the “nanny government” being created by Democrats. He rejects the moral decay of the American family and government services replacing the father. Traditional American family values must be restored if this country is to survive.

America has a serious and growing problem with foreign energy dependence. Hunter wants to put the country on the fast track to energy independence in much the same way that JFK put a man on the moon in 10 years. “Whatever it takes,” says Hunter, to break our dependence on foreign oil. Energy needs must trump the concerns of liberal environmentalists. All domestic oil and gas resources must be exploited as soon as possible to make America energy independent.

Global warming is a hoax. Although there may be a degree and a half of warming over the past 100 years, even that is not certain, there is no definitive evidence that man has caused it. We can’t let this political agenda scare us away from developing energy independence.

Hunter also supports the Fair Tax initiative where everyone pays their fair share through a federal sales tax. With no more need of the IRS, the savings to the federal government in administration costs would be in the billions of dollars. Citizens would then have control over how much taxes they pay by controlling their spending.

Iranian nuclear weapons are unacceptable to Duncan Hunter. He would prefer a diplomatic course to end the Iranian nuclear program but if that fails, he would not be opposed to using whatever force necessary to prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon. He also believes that American soldiers should serve in the American army, not as U.N. forces. Nor should U.N. forces be used to defend American interests anywhere in the world when the job can be handled by American forces.

In conclusion, I could not find one single thing I disagreed with Hunter on during the entire hour interview by Glenn Beck. In the left sidebar at GreatAmericanJournal.com is a graphic link to Duncan Hunter’s contribution page. I hope you will use it. Duncan Hunter has my support. I hope he has yours too.
