Mr. Hoekstra is no conservative. He voted for cash for clunkers the banker bailout and lied about term limits. Mr. Hoekstra loves big government and true Michigan conservatives need to give this man the boot in the August primary.

Hoekstra is still better than any progressive socialist.
We have to consider the big picture in the next election, the old "lesser of two evils" has never been more true or important.
Lets hope we get better choices but in the end, the imperative must be to stop the progressive socialists.
At any cost, the future of America depends on it

Look at Hoekstra's voting record. If you want to know what someone will do; look at what they have done.

Pete is a whore and will prostitute your vote as he sees fit. He told a friend of mine who goes to church with Pete, he votes and decides what is good or bad based on what HE thinks, not what the constituency thinks or says.

That is not what we want to represent us. Pete represents himself and no one else.

Mike Cox is the whom I am voting for. If you vote the lesser of two evils you are whoring your vote away.
Mike Cox is very conservative and didn't vote for the bailouts.

The point, BDWG, is Hoekstra did. Hoekstra helped to add to our deficit, bailed out bankers, voted for cash for clunkers and lied about term limits. Mr. Hoekstra can't be trusted.

"Mr. Hoekstra can't be trusted." ~ Alashieve

And what politician can?
Somebody who is NOT a politician perhaps?
Maybe somebody who is....a nerd?
