Duncan Hunter is the man for the job of President of the United States. There is much at stake this election and if we elect the wrong man (or heaven help us, the wrong woman)then our great country will pay the price. Duncan Hunter understands the consequences of having trade policy that is unfair to American manufacturers. He will bring back our backbone of technology that is manufacturing. If the product is made overseas then eventually it will be designed overseas. Please check out Duncan Hunter for yourselves because the television media certainly is not going to communciate his stance for you. I believe wholeheartedly that if Americans knew what Duncan Hunter stands for and has actually done to support what he stands for then he would be a front runner. Go Duncan Hunter!

More proof that the Nazi Saul Anzuis has pre-picked the winner of the primary!

Folks who tamper with elections are criminals!

(As is every legislator who voted to move the primary to Jan 15)

IMO... this primary violates the Michigan Constitution.(secrecy of the ballot!)

I hope the media continues to ignore Ron Paul. Join me in ignoring Ron Paul - this annoys his delusional, deranged followers and makes me laugh. Ron Paul and his delusional supporters are one big freak show political Star Trek convention full of emotionally damaged lunatics.

Great to see a straw poll. But interesting the attendees had to "purchase" a ballot. Romney won the straw poll, because he attended the event. Michigan is approaching a recession and there's only one candidate talking about how to correct the problem. I would encourage all voters to give Governor Mike Huckabee a second look. He's true Christian Leader with a great plan for America.

A vote for Mitt is the same as voting for Hillary!

Both are pro war prostitutes for Isreal.

And Pete Hoekstra best be put behind bars soon or there WILL be a breakdown of law and order in Michigan!!!

Lock and load for Constitution hating America based Terrorists!

Ottawa county has a high density of bible - belchers. It's not a big surprise a poll there would favor one of the two christian cult candidates. They probably picked Mitt over Huckabee because Huckabee is a friend to illegals.

For all the big bucks that Ron Paul has pulled in, can't he even just travel to Michigan sometime? I'm sure Neko and his other devoted followers would love to meet him.

But then, maybe he knows that so he's not coming close?

At least the Republican Party feels that Michigan is worth a fight and to represent, I hope that the Democrats will see how their Party is representing Michigan and vote fair and honest if they do vote this Tuesday.
I know that I feel unjustly represented by the Democratic Party as an Michigander, this is still a democratic state and all Michiganders should be upset over what the Democratic Party is doing in Michigan absolutely nothing.
Anyway, glade this is happening on the side of the Republican Party. I am a strong Republican but I am also a independent and will vote for the right person. So it is important to have debates and representatives running for the highest office of our country come to Michigan. The Democrats are showing their true colors and how they feel toward Michigan, so think about it liberals and Democrats. At least the Republicans showed up in Michigan.
God Bless America.

... even though the "establishment" picked him.
Mitt Romney may share the last name of a former Michigan governor, but because he is the "hometown boy" doesn't mean he is the best choice to lead our country.
Why?
He's not trustworthy, that's why. He didn't keep taxes level in his state, he raised MILLIONS in fees. He is running a negative campaign, spending tons of money, and he hasn't won any of the major contests, and is not a leader in the polls.

The last couple debate contained some more Romney lies (from factcheck.org ):
Romney claimed Massachusetts gained jobs "every single month" he was governor after hitting a low point. In fact the job gains seesawed, with seven of 36 months producing job losses. Furthermore, Romney's job record provides little to boast about. By the end of his four years in office, Massachusetts had squeezed out a net gain in payroll jobs of just 1 percent, compared with job growth of 5.3 percent for the nation as a whole.
Romney falsely claimed to have been endorsed by the Massachusetts Right to Life Association. Actually, he was endorsed by a single chapter of a different group.
Romney falsely denied that an attack ad called McCain’s immigration bill "amnesty," though it does. One of his Web ads also attacks McCain for supporting "amnesty." He conceded during the debate that McCain’s bill "technically" isn’t amnesty.
Oh, and he said he never supported a timed withdrawal of troops from Iraq, when he did.

Someone sent me this link on Youtube. Its about immigration and uses charts to show our population growth.
Its long but interesting. I hope the link works. I figured this should be put into play when your voting for candidates who are for and against keeping borders open.

WOW!!!

I have always been a advocate of tightening our borders. This is perhaps the only nation in the world where border security is not taken seriously enough. This is a very strange policy for a country which is obsessed with national security and terrorism.

Michigan Primary Outrage - 1/11/08

There are cynics who say that all politicians are a gang of thieves who are happy to conspire with each other against the public. Most of the time, I like to think that isnt true.

Unfortunately, in the case of Michigans last-minute and half-baked presidential primary, thats exactly what happened. This primary was ill-conceived, has become a national embarrassment and was really designed to exploit the voters.

"Straw Polls" don't mean anything.

In fact, such polling is - I believe - detrimental to the process. If a poll says a certain person is leading, it might cause voters to either not turn up or change how they were going to vote.

WOW was my exact thought as well. I too am for tightening our borders, and this just makes you see how much we really need to do so. Its just mind boggling when you watch this.

DEM'S DON'T THROW YOUR VOTE AWAY!!!!!!!

Due to violating party rules, the Democratic National Committee has stripped Michigan of all its delegates to the Democratic National Convention. You can vote in the Democrats primary, but no Michigan delegates will be sent to the DNC to vote for you.

As if that isnt bad enough, most candidates running for the Democrats nomination didnt even register to be on the ballot or have withdrawn their names. Here is a list of people who will be on the ballot: Hillary Clinton, Mike Gravel, and Dennis Kucinich. So if you wanted to vote for Barack Obama, John Edwards, or any other candidate youre SOL because they wont even be on the ballot.

Instead of casting a meaningless vote on the Democrats ticket, you can vote in the Republican primary, helping bring a win-win ballot for the 2008 Presidential election by voting for Ron Paul. The war in Iraq has consistently rated the highest issue important to voters. Another issue not polled which Im sure matters to voters is the restoration of our civil liberties.

Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who is against the Iraq war and for the restoration of our civil liberties. All of the Democrats oppose the war in Iraq, so by voting for Ron Paul in the Republican primary you can help create a win-win 2008 Presidential ballot. It will be an anti-war, pro civil liberties Democrat versus an anti-war, pro civil liberties Republican. No matter who wins the election, the war will end and our civil liberties will be restored.
