Welcome Congressman Duncan Hunter - LIVE Thread (virtual Free Republic press Conference)
From San Diego, CA | 8/13/07 | Duncan Hunter/Freepers

Posted on 08/13/2007 1:24:44 PM PDT by pissant

To members of Free Republic and friends, I would like to introduce a candidate for President of the United States and the current congressman from the 52nd district of California, Duncan Hunter!! To Americans who value the patriotism and missions of our Armed Forces, to those who want to put fear into the hearts of our adversaries from Beijing to Tehran, to those who value the rule of law when it comes to illegal immigration, to those who realize that the unborn deserve full legal protection beginning at conception, to those who believe Peace through Strength is far more than a motto, to those who do not like giving communist China unfettered access to our markets while they cheat at every turn, to those who want to halt and reverse losses of US sovereignty to global entities, and to those who want the GOP to return to Reaganism, Mr. Hunter is the Best choice.

Congressman Hunter currently is the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, after spending the previous 4 years as its chair. He is an original co-sponsor of the Fair Tax bill and he is the author of the Secure Borders bill, signed by President Bush in 2006, which mandates 800+ miles of double fence across the smuggling corridors of the SW. He also is the man who has led the fight against NAFTA’s Mexican truckers having free reign on our roads, has forced congressional oversight of the executive branch’s ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ with Canada and Mexico, and was instrumental in saving our military intelligence officers from having to jump through bureaucratic hoops unrelated to combat.

A Vietnam combat Veteran himself, he currently has a son in the Marine Corps, Capt. Duncan Duane Hunter who is busy hunting jihadis in Afghanistan after two tours in Iraq. Congressman Hunter has been the anti-dote to the liberals in Congress doing their damndest to cut and run from the battlefield. Mr. Hunter knows that this war is our generation’s calling, and “the only way we can leave is to WIN”.

Below are 15 questions we compiled last month on Free Republic, which we sent to Congressman Hunter a few weeks ago. They are followed by his answers. This is the springboard we will use to kick off Mr. Hunter’s live “virtual press conference” on FR today.

Please stop by and say hello and you may post additional questions. HOWEVER, Please realize that time limitations will prevent him from answering all the questions you may have. Though he may get time later to forward answers to many left unaddressed during this session.

Please drop Jim Robinson a note of thanks as well. For not only hosting this event, but for having the best conservative website in the country!

Also, no disruptors allowed. Your posts will be removed.

The following is our Kickoff Q&A session:

That said, wasteful projects should be eliminated, and their authors held politically accountable.

Thank you sir. I don't have any issue with military expenditures (and other constitutional items), but it's insane that a taxpayer of Georgia funds the Massachusetts "Big Dig", or bridges in Alaska. I'm all for each state spending their own monies for their own state projects. Is there anything you would do as President to curb/limit such projects?

As President, I will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon.
***Would that mean an invasion if push came to shove?

Welcome to FreeRepublic, Congressman Hunter.

I hope that we FReepers can help win you the Republican nomination, and then into the White House.

These are dangerous times we live in, and I honestly believe that you are the best man to lead America at this time in history.

To the Honorable Congressman Duncan Hunter:

Please continue your challenge to win the GOP nomination for the 2008 election. You are the only real choice that conservatives have to support in the upcoming election.

Question: What two or three things must be accomplished to elevate your message to the GOP voters to gain traction and increasing support so that the media must focus attention on your candidacy? What specifically can we do to help you get your message out?

Our prayers and support are with you. - OB1

How can all political bias in the mainstream media all over the world truly be ended for always and truly replaced by fair and balanced media coverage on all of the issues for always?

Mr Hunter, thank you so much for coming to our forums. My only question is: what steps you would take if Iran made any new moves to acquire nuclear weapons/technology?

Congressman Hunter,

It's a pleasure to have you here with us. I recently donated to your campaign because I've never heard a statement from you that I didn't like. This thread has been no different. Keep up the good work.

You are so right! Duncan Hunter you are the CLEAR CHOICE for President. I know you can turn out nation back in the right direction for a change. There is no other candidate out there that stands so firmly on what he believes and you tell it like it is. STRAIGHT AND TRUE!

Sir, why are you the only candidate who openly recognizes the economic and potential military threat posed by Red China?

The only GOP candidate. I've seen where Dem candidates including Hillary and Obama address China from this respect. I think it's an issue ripe for the Dems to exploit and I'm glad Congressman Hunter was first into the fray on this critical issue.

Dear Congressman Hunter,

First of all, thank you so much for joining us on FR. It's very appreciated.

If you do not succeed in winning the GOP nomination, which other candidates do you feel are worthy of your support? Would you accept a VP nomination? Would you accept a Cabinet position, and, if so, where do you believe you could have the most positive impact?

Again, thank you for you time and presence.

American Soldiers and Marines must have the ability to

1) destroy the enemy
2) protect themselves

These requirements are interpreted by battlefield commanders who adopt specific rules according to the area of operations. For example: a crowded city is not a free-fire zone, while a situation like the second battle of Fallujah where the civilian population is evacuated is much different. Urban fighting is extremely difficult, because the enemy is often revealed only as they expose weapons immediately prior to their attack. Most battlefield commanders take this into consideration when laying out rules of engagement in specific situations. My recommendation is always to enact ROE’s that favor the survival of U.S. Troops.
