The mods or Jimrob must have put it in breaking news.

I did not. Regardless, there is only one candidate with real authority on the subject, and it ain’t the big three.

Nice picture. Good guy.

Bravo Duncan!

If my man, Mitt, wins, I hope Duncan Hunter offers his services to the Romney administration (and vice versa, of course).

Duncan Hunter is our country’s last hope. If he doesn’t win in ‘08, it’ll be the end of America as we know it.

I signed onto the Hunter campaign early. They sent me some bumper stickers, but that's all. They have no organization here in Florida and the whole thing is run on a shoestring. That's not good. What I could give and perhaps what all freepers could give combined is but a tiny drop in the bucket of what is needed to get his campaign jumpstarted. I have to confess, if Fred Thompson gets in (he'd better HURRY!) I'll jump ship for his campaign. I think Hunter is more of a valid "conservative" than Fred, but I think that Fred can win. In fact Fred might be the next Reagan in the drawing power he will have with those conservative and disaffected democrats that used to be known as REAGAN DEMOCRATS. Heck, my late mom was one.

Some on another board are calling for a "National Strike Against Illegals - "A DAY WITHOUT AMERICANS"...not sure of the details. Maybe we can encourage Conservative Radio hosts and Patriotic Congressman like Mr. Hunter, Mr. Tancredo, etc. to endorse...?

Just a thought...I'm so pissed off about this sellout that I could chew nails, and we must do something...anything to stop these CRIMINALS from destroying our republic.

I gave money to Hunter. I think this amnesty nonsense will give some of the lesser known candidates a chance against the ones GOP HQ has selected for us.

Bush will NOT veto this bill. It closely mirrors the type of immigration proposal that he espoused in his 1999 and 2000 election campaign.

You will have to work on blocking this some other way.

The RINO’s in the race(Rudy McRomney) are all weak on illegal immigration. I hope that the media stops ignoring Hunter after this tragedy.

why is this breaking news?

Apparently, it's been moved. I agree it isn't breaking news, though -- anyone with half a brain cell would know that Hunter would react exactly this way (and I'm saying this as a good thing). "Breaking News" would be if he had suddenly gone senile and supported this POS.

I’m surprised that the unions haven’t been squealing like stuck pigs on illegals 1) taking away work from potential members, and 2) from allowing the free market to raise the hourly rate for such work. Again, it’s the Washington mind versus the little people they represent.

They see it as a giant organizing campaign for more dues.

"I just wonder where all the outraged border-bots were in November of 2006 when it was time to support the courageous Republicans in the House of Representatives who actually fought the good fight on immigration reform?"

We were working for and supporting the anti-illegal Republicans, despite the efforts of the RNC to marginalize them. This outrageous amnesty is the direct result of President Bush's determination to force it on us. The RNC, headed by Bush's choice, Mel Martinez, loves this bill.

Your attempt to fault conservatives for this debacle is laughable.

I still haven’t backed a candidate but I’m sending the Hunter campaign some $ today because I’d like to see him replace one of the other ‘front runners.’

Anyone who can send this guy $20, please do. We need to replace one of the Rudy McRomneys with an actual conservative.

Realistically, He is an unelectable unknown.

A better course, a doable course, would be to recapture the House and have him serve as Speaker.

Bush has been wanting this for years. Once he started calling them “guest workers”, it was clear that he figured he would be able to sign some sort of amnesty.

We’ve only built 2 miles of the 700 mile fence we were promised.

Big Business doesn’t want it, Bush doesn’t want it, the GOP doesn’t want it(The Democrats don’t want it. Back when Bush was Governor, he wanted us to be as close to Mexico as possible (so did the democrats). I have a very strong feeling that that’s the reason why we have dragged our feet on the wall. (Because there is no one party that wants to do ANYTHING to stop the illegals!)

THERE fixed it!

He's already going to give up his House seat, win or lose the primary, so that option is off the table. VP or SecDef (maybe even Homeland Security?) are excellent possibilities, however.

Call. Write. E-mail your representatives

Tell what you think about this bill.

Also, send an e-mail to the White House and let Jorge know what you think about him.

LAST and NOT LEAST, write a check to Duncan Hunter and a letter of support.

Let him KNOW that people out there are beginning to take notice of him and his message.

Of all the candidates running and not running, Duncan Hunter is the best.

I just sent him $25. I want to see him rise to the ‘top tier’ of candidates and change the tone of the debate.

Not behind him 100% - too SoCon in certain ways for me, like the Parents’ Empowerment Act which was really dumb, but compared to rudy mcromney’s liberal positions, I can live with him given the rest of his record.

I remember a number of Freepers in particular who were adamant about staying home to “send a message to the GOP”.Is it now a requirement that someone post this same tired extremely flawed idea on every single topic in this forum.

Yes, but if the lamestream media cares to even acknowledge the topic, they will give Tancredo the coverage about it. It's been his issue for quite some time now.

Hunter had better get medieval on McPain's azz in the next debate, if he wants to pull out of single digits in the polls.

Well said.

Bush is seeking a legacy and with this amnesty bill and its highly undesireable long term effects, Bush’s legacy will be that he signed legislation, that among other things, gives the Dems tens of millions of new Dem voters.

Thus giving political and judicial control of the USA to the extreme left (the Dem Party of today fits that description) for the next 50+ years or possibly permanently.

With total political power, can anyone honestly deny that a DNC version of Chavez policies could be enacted?

There was a statistics professor on the radio this morning, who has been studying this for several months, saying the minimum number of illegals in this country today is 38 MILLION.

If these millions are made, by the stroke of the President’s pen, *LEGAL*, the economic, political and social patterns of this country will instantly be changed forever.

Apparently Pelosi said she would see the bill unless Bush got 70 Republicans in the House. I think that’s nearly impossible. This would be the first time I like Pelosi’s chose, if that’s truely how it will go down.
