Illegal immigration is simply 'share the wealth’ socialism and a CRIME not a race!

Hunter on top in Nevada!

Duncan Hunter has been able to spend time in Nevada and go around the media who excludes him from the discussion. This is what happens when the people are allowed to hear and see a GOOD candidate. Have you seen any republican beat everyone even the dems in a poll??

Duncan Hunter, the Patriot's Best Friend
January 18, 2008 01:00 PM EST

It was December 23rd 1978, and I was about to go home to Colorado for my very first Air Force Christmas leave. I was stationed at KI Sawyer AFB in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The transition from spoiled high school brat to a B-52 aircraft mechanic was drastic. Managed by super stressed out Vietnam Vets , pulling Nuclear Alert, and pushing maintenance stands through two feet of snow at sixty below zero (wind chill factor) was quite an experience, to say the least. The dormitory rooms I called home were 12’ by 12’ boxes painted over dozens of times. The good chow was a plus.

The fall of Saigon was only 3 years distant. The Carter administration and 16 percent interest rates were in full swing. Farmers were losing their farms at an unprecedented rate. Japan was gaining a foothold in the U.S auto industry. Even though my father, a retired Air Force Master Sergeant could depend on his VA check, times were tough. Both he and my Bavarian mother worked very hard, and watched every penny they made. For them “The Depression” and Post WWII Germany were a significant memories.

After technical school, things were much different in “The real Air force”. Attitudes among first termers were extremely bad. It was a “we/them” relationship between lifers and first term Airman. Drugs were still prevalent among a large percentage of the military populous. Airman and most DOD people did not wear their uniforms in public. "Baby killer" was still fresh on our minds! I never wore my blues to the airport etc.

Things began to change in January 1980. Reagan immediately raised military wages 14 percent. The DOD established “Golden flow” and started randomly testing for drugs. Bad attitudes were systematically replaced with professionalism. Old school yell and scream military discipline measures were also replaced. Lead by example, patient consensus building, mentoring, and interaction skills became the order of the day.

George Bush Senior’s victory during Desert Storm brought back the pride to be in the military.

All this time, Duncan Hunter was a member of the “House Armed services Committee”. For 27 years, Duncan has worked diligently to improve the standard of living for the GI. Dormitory cells were replaced with apartment sized living quarters. Old equipment was replaced with cutting edge technology. Zero tolerance was instituted and attitudes sky rocketed. The quality of training and operational readiness change dramatically. Survival rates after a battlefield injury increased from 70 to 90 percent.

Today, Duncan Hunter is still in tune with the military. In some cases, he is on a first name basis with our military leaders etc. He continues to make sure our boys and girls are as safe as possible while serving on the battle field. He continues to make sure our troops are taken care of at home. He continues to make sure our troops move forward and take advantage of opportunity. A combat veteran in Vietnam, he has been there. So with almost 40 years of affiliation and demonstrated excellence when it comes to helping create a better military for our patriots, my heart is with Duncan Hunter. Please give Duncan Hunter your vote, for he does deserve it.



Rep. Duncan Hunter accepting the 2006 Keeper of the Flame Award.

(Washington, D.C.): On September 20, 2006, the Center for Security Policy paid tribute to House Armed Services Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter and Those Who Serve – the men and women who render invaluable service to the Nation in the War on Terror.

Congressman Hunter’s address to the nearly 400 attendees at this elegant black-tie dinner held at Washington's landmark Union Station was preceded by a welcome from Dinner Chairman Jim Pitts, Corporate Vice President of the Northrup Grumman Corporation, and remarks by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. The Keeper of the Flame Awards were presented to Rep. Hunter and five outstanding representatives of Those Who Serve in the U.S. armed forces by House Appropriations Committee Chairman Jerry Lewis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Peter Pace, respectively.

The event concluded with moving remarks by Westwood One’s nationally syndicated talk show host Lars Larsen, who recently lost a close friend in combat in Iraq. Mr. Larsen joined in thanking Congressman Hunter and all Those Who Serve, and encouraged their support through the work of the Center for Security Policy.
