Duncan Hunter Accepts GodVoter.org Endorsement
Electing the most qualified candidate as leader is the aspiration of all democratic societies and political systems. Trusting that America will not prove to be an exception, GodVoter.org is pleased to endorse Duncan Hunter for President, for five compelling reasons.
Firstly, a nation at war needs a war-time President. To protect our national interest, America must win in Iraq, Afghanistan and against the rise of Islamic terrorism and Iran. While John McCain's 5 years as a POW in Hanoi proves his valor, Duncan Hunter's 26 years on the House Armed Services Committee, which he chaired, is more directly applicable to leading a nation engaged in a complex, multi-front war.
Secondly, the Hunter candidacy isn't a creation of political strategists. Most of the candidates leading in the polls have discrepancies between their present claims and past record. Some say they changed their minds recently. Others claim lapses in memory. All are stretching their persona and platforms to broaden their appeal, as advised. Duncan Hunter has neither political handlers nor such discrepancies, and is a refreshingly genuine exception to the norm.
Thirdly, Duncan Hunter is a man of action. He wanted secure borders, so he built a double fence along the Mexican border. He wanted to protect life and marriage, so he authored multiple bills to protect them. He wanted to protect the country, so he fought in Vietnam, returned with a Bronze Star, and sent his son to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. Actions speak louder than words, and Duncan Hunter's actions speak the loudest.
Fourthly, Duncan Hunter is the most dependable person to protect the Judeo-Christian foundation of America. While the other conservative candidates' Supreme Court Justice nominations may be open to speculation and doubts, Duncan Hunter's uncompromised conservative social values record precludes the need for such speculation.
Fifthly, Congressman Hunter's low poll ratings can be reversed fairly quickly. Little can be done about low poll numbers caused by a weak candidacy, which isn't the case with Hunter. Most conservative political commentators rave about Hunter's presidential qualifications yet remain reluctant to support his candidacy, citing the lack of momentum behind it. A stampeding herd can be redirected by a few at the front stepping out with conviction, and the sudden rise of the Huckabee candidacy has shown how quickly the conservative vote can be redirected. That vote is still largely uncommitted.
Duncan Hunter isn't as suave, funny, telegenic or rich as some of the other candidates. But based on the qualities becoming a President, Duncan Hunter is the most qualified person to lead America for at least the next four years.
In accepting our endorsement, Congressman Hunter highlighted, "Thank you for your endorsement of my campaign based on my qualifications and conservative positions of providing a strong national defense and secure borders. As president I will work to restore opportunity for the American worker. I will bring high paying jobs back to this country by stopping China from cheating on trade. By restoring economic opportunity for the next generation we re-gain the majority position in U.S. politics. Recent world events point to the need for conservatives to choose a nominee who is ready on day one to lead. I am grateful that you have chosen me as that candidate."
