Did you have to excerpt it?

If not, the first paragraph, at least, is worth posting.

I have been persuaded of Duncan Hunter’s excellent suitability for President, but he’s just not getting the message out. I wish he could raise more money and spend more money to get his beliefs out.

This thread (up to this point, at least) is a fairly accurate representation of the Hunter campaign.

Most people who frequent conservative Free Republic know precisely who the best GOP candidate is for POTUS.

Fred Thompson.

Today is a sad day for conservatism. Another candidate has dropped out of the GOP race, one of the few candidates that can actually be considered conservative. Right now, the media is shoving several moderate candidates down our throats, and forcing the actually conservative candidates to the bottom of the race. Tom Tancredo was one such candidate.

Not only was Tom Tancredo one of the few conservatives in the race, he was one of the few that could be trusted when it comes to the issue of border security; and he is an expert on it too. Now that he has left the race, where are those of us to turn that support actually securing our borders?

Unfortunately, the media seems to be dead set against the candidates that want to actually secure the border and protect our sovereignty. The media is obsessed with the current front-runners, which is evidence to me they should not be trusted:

Mitt Romney: See this article showing how he has flip-flopped on immigration: http://www.unionleader.com/article.aspx?headline=Romney%27s+migration%3a+He+shouldn%27t+need+to+lie&articleId=916a6347-2df9-4199-9050-1e684d0a0f7e

Fred Thompson: Has hinted that he supports path to citizenship programs (see this comparison sheet between him and Duncan Hunter, where Fred shows his true colors on amnesty, http://dhgrassrevolt.wordpress.com/2007/12/07/huckabeehunter-and-thompsonhunter-comparison-sheets/

Thompson also has supported NAFTA and its expansion. (Numbers USA has beefed up Thompson’s record a bit, making it look better than it did a few months ago. Here is an article delving into Thompson’s past, http://dhgrassrevolt.wordpress.com/2007/10/13/gary-c-huggins-illegal-immigration-history-of-fred-thompson-and-his-campaign-assistant-spencer-abraham/

John McCain: McCain-Kennedy (enough said)

Rudy Giuliani: Has connections to NAFTA through is law firm, supported sanctuary city policies in New York. Has some of the WORST ratings from NumbersUSA of anyone running.

—-

This is all not to mention the other shortfallings these candidates have when it comes to other important conservative issues, that candidates such as Tancredo and Duncan Hunter are much better on.

—-

I support Congressman Duncan Hunter, and hope you will join me.

Thompson has been falling in the polls. He lost 30 points at Intrade, squandering the lead — that’s a sign he’s a lousy candidate.

According to Intrade, the winner of the December 12th GOP debate was... Duncan Hunter.

Sorry, I don’t agree with your opinion at all.

And neither does the vast majority of conservative Free Republic.

I suggest you peddle that spam-crap somewhere else.

ETFOOM, but when the polls for FR asked who they’d support if they weren’t afraid their candidate would lose, they chose Hunter 3:2 over Thompson when one or the other was chosen. Does that mean you don’t agree with 3/5 of Freepers’ opinions at all?

Peddle your stuff elsewhere. Thompson is a lousy candidate.

Thompson is a viable candidate, Hunter is not. The voters in the primaries will make that abundantly clear.

To: Kevmo; All

FRED THOMPSON is the best person to lead this country. He is a true conservative and has been his entire life. All one has to do is check his record to see this.

During my time in the Army as an Intelligence Analyst, I served under both Presidents Carter and Reagan (as my commanders in chief). Without argument, President Reagan was the best commander-in-chief a military person could ever have served under. Fred Thompson possesses the same qualities and vision as President Reagan in that he is strong on national defense and sees a dire need to secure our borders and control immigration.

I can think of no better person to lead this country and fix the problems we have. He is the only candidate from either party who has specific and detailed plans on border security and immigration reform; revitalization of America’s armed forces; saving and protecting Social Security; and tax relief and economic growth. These are detailed on his Web site at www.fred08.com. I challenge you to find any other candidate who has laid out specific plans to fix anything.

Fred Thompson has published his first principles, some of which are mentioned above. In addition to those, he strongly believes in individual liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, federalism, traditional American values, the rule of law and is a strong proponent of the Second Amendment — all concepts established during the birth of our country and documented in our Constitution.

Again, try to find any candidate who has laid out their plans to “fix” this country. You will find they all speak in vague and abstract terms on their plans.

For those who have heard Fred Thompson speak, you will usually hear him say that the Fred Thompson you see today is the same Fred Thompson you saw yesterday and is the same Fred Thompson you will see tomorrow. He stands by his principles and values and doesn’t shift his positions based on polls or public opinion; in other words, he doesn’t say what the voters want to hear just to get elected, but remains steadfast on his views and convictions.

During his time in the Senate he focused on three areas: to lower taxes, strengthen national security and expose waste in the federal government. Fred Thompson has foreign policy experience, having served as member of the Senate Foreign Relations and Senate Intelligence committees.

As chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee, he opened the investigation in 1997 on the Chinese government’s attempt to influence American policies and elections, and this investigation identified connections with the Clinton administration (documented in the committee’s report).

As a member of the Finance Committee, he worked tirelessly to enact three major tax-cut bills. Fred Thompson remains steadfast and even though a person may not agree with all his views and he understands some may disagree with him, you can count on him to be consistent and unwavering.

Don’t be fooled by his laid back approach and what critics call his “laziness.” As a former assistant U.S. attorney, he earned a reputation as a tough prosecutor and he possesses the toughness this country needs in order to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s issues.

I ask that you take a hard look at what this country needs, then take a hard look at all the other candidates’ views, policies, their records and their track record on consistency. Fred Thompson possesses integrity, loyalty, commitment, energy and decisiveness, all traits of an effective leader, and will emerge as the best person to take this country boldly forward.

I think Thompson is most likely to gain the bulk of Tancredo’s voters despite his Romney endorsement. Most won’t be able to jump from Tanc to Mitt. No way.

Your ignorance of statistics has failed you again. That was not a scientific poll, it doesn't represent 3/5 of Freepers because the poll was self-selected, not randomly sampled. It represents 3/5 of those who took part in the poll.

"I have been persuaded of Duncan Hunter’s excellent suitability for President, but he’s just not getting the message out. I wish he could raise more money and spend more money to get his beliefs out."

Don't worry, some of the other candidates are getting boring and/or silly and the Media will change the channel.

I prefer Thompson but can live with Romney. Huckabee, Giuliani, or McCain would be a disaster for the GOP, especially on immigration.

That’s just you bearing down on another semantic issue.

I’m surprised you didn’t call me a liar over this particular semantic issue this time. You must be growing as a person.

Note that the question went unanswered.

Keep up the good support of your candidate, pasquinade.

I gotta hand it to you. You have no idea what you’re talking about, but you just keep chugging along, posting crap in spite of reality.

***I can. Duncan Hunter.

He is the only candidate from either party who has specific and detailed plans on border security and immigration reform;
***Hunter’s criticism of Thompson over this issue is well aimed. We need someone in the white house who isn’t a johnny-come-lately on this issue.
