He's the one we need
I got an email from a voter . He went to the rally and parade in Reno on Sunday last where Duncan Hunter was appearing.
Here is what he said:
“I went down and listened to him. Damn I wish he had a larger following. He's the one we need.”Yet, this person has not done one thing to encourage others to take a look at Duncan Hunter and still shows no support. It’s curious to me, since he is aware the media and GOP party heads have done all they could to shut out the most conservative candidate in America. He realizes if we are to succeed in electing a man like Duncan Hunter, we, the people, have to get it done.
Hunter is the only candidate talking about the threat of China..... the only one who voted against Most favored Nations trade status for China. He is the only candidate who has the record and actions to actually secure our border. He is the only candidate who has refused to buckle under party pressure to vote their way on unfair trade deals like Nafta, Cafta, etc. He stood against the Bush administration on China, the border, Dubai ports, the law of the sea UN treaty, to name a few.
“Damn! I wish he had a larger following! “ Well, wishing in one hand and doing nothing with the other will get us more of the same. Sitting back and waiting for everyone else to get the best candidate ‘a larger following’ will only get us more of the same. We the people?
Like many of us, this voter is disgusted with government out of control and being run by anyone except ‘we the people’. So what do many of them do? The go to the extreme and push the extreme candidate without the record to back up his promises. Namely Ron Paul.
Ron Paul. The ‘small’ government guy. The ‘constitutional’ candidate.
His supporters insist he has incredible accomplishments. But none of them can tell you what they are, because as a congressman, he accomplished nothing except to co sponsor 1876 bills written by other congressmen. Small government??
This election , wouldn’t it be refreshing if we actually looked at the facts? If you want an ‘average’ do nothing congressman, Ron Paul is your man.
Just for comparison of actual accomplishments in congress:
Sponsored means he wrote or introduced the bill. Co sponsors sign on to other bills written by someone else.
Statistics: Duncan Hunter has sponsored 105 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 72 haven’t made it out of committee (Average)
and 10 were successfully enacted (Good, relative to peers).
Hunter has co-sponsored 894 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers).
Now take a look at Ron Paul, who claims many ‘accomplishments’ and would never vote for any frivolous, unconstitutional bill!
Statistics: Ronald Paul has sponsored 346 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 341 haven’t made it out of committee (Extremely Poor) and 0 were successfully enacted .(Average, relative to peers).
Paul has co-sponsored 1876 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers)
NOTE: 1876 bills, written by other congress members. All ‘constitutional’ ? You decide.
Lastly! Keep the words of this wise man in your heart and mind when you pick your candidate:
No one can speak well, unless he thoroughly understands his subject. Cicero
Not to know what has been transacted in former times is to be always a child. If no use is made of the labors of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of knowledge. Cicero
Men decide far more problems by hate, love, lust, rage, sorrow, joy, hope, fear, illusion, or some other inward emotion, than by reality, authority, any legal standard, judicial precedent, or statute. Cicero
The first duty of a man is the seeking after and the investigation of truth. Cicero
