If I was voting in a Caucus . . . .

I am not a super political person - but the more I learn about this canidate, the more I like him. If he doesn't get the nomination (which is looking doubtful right now), he will be my choice. Outside of these two - I really can't get excited about any of the other Republicans.

1) He is the most conservative candidate in the race. He has a 92% lifetime rating, American Conservative Union.

2) He is the "National Security" candidate. He served with the 173rd Airborne and the 75th Army Rangers in Vietnam, and was, most recently, the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee in the House of Representatives. Duncan Hunter knows defense.

3) He is a strong supporter of missile defense.

4) He's a strong supporter of Israel.

5) He was responsible for building the fence along the Mexico-U.S. border in San Diego. That double fence cut smuggling (people and drugs) over 90%.

6) He opposes the McCain-Kennedy Amnesty bill in the Senate.

7) He is a co-sponsor of the Fair Tax.

8) He was the co-sponsor of a bill that would require a 2/3 majority in Congress to raise taxes.
9) He is a strong proponent of fair trade and will fix some of the bad trade deals that have been made by previous administrations in order to keep high paying jobs in America.

10) He pledges to appoint originalist judges like Antonin Scalia.

11) He has a 100% Pro-Life rating from National Right to Life.

12) He believes that marriage is between a man and a woman. He supports a Constitutional Amendment to protect marriage.

13) He is a strong defender of the 2nd Amendment who has an A+ National Rifle Association rating.

14) He supports school choice.
To be honest, I will be glad when it's all over. I just pray for the Lord's will to be done in the situation. To do that, and vote, is all I can do. I know many of you support Huckabee - who may be a fine man and a great Christian, but is not a conservative.

Yes. You beat me to it. I was going to post this information on my blog!

I started out liking Huckabee but have changed my mind. I like Duncun Hunter for all the reasons you have listed. I do hope he can get the recognition he deserves. He would be great for our country.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving the nice commnent. Come back.
