Huckabee Not The Real Conservative That Media Claims
We all know that Rudy, Mitt and McCain all have liberal leanings which concern red stater values voters like myself. Huckabee is being sold to us a the real deal conservative... but consider just who is doing the selling and what their definition of a 'conservative' is.
Here is Mike Huckabee on TAXES... see if he sounds like any conservative you know...
Duncan Hunter is for making the Bush tax cuts permanent and opposes any new taxes, plus Hunter is a sponsor of the FAIR TAX plan.
Mike Huckabee has said he supports the fair tax... and every OTHER tax proposal as well however. The Club for Growth takes a close look at Huckabee's 10 year tenure in Arkansas, and it's not pretty.
UPDATE:11/13/07- BATESLINE has this followup story confirming the Club for Growth analysis today.
On illegal immigration Huckabee tries to straddle a 40 feet wide 20 feet tall double fence.
He says he wants to enforce the laws but...
"What does make sense is a revision of our laws, one giving those here illegally a process through which they pay a reasonable fine in admission of their guilt for the past infraction of violating our border laws and agree to adhere to a pathway toward legal status and citizenship".
i.e. Pay the gov some $$$ and go to the front of the line... ahead of those that applied for citizenship LEGALLY. (THIS is Bush's Amnesty bill)
Huckabee sponsored the Southern Governors Association bill to "IMPORT FARM WORKERS FROM MEXICO to America. Huckabee's bill would...
"Implement a farm labor system, based on the agreement between Canada and Mexico, which will provide an orderly, efficient way to import farm workers."Sound like any conservative YOU KNOW OF? Me neither.
Duncan Hunter says "If you can climb over my fence, we'll sign you up for the Olympics".
Hunter is the author of the US/Mexico Fence Bill signed into law by President Bush and supports tough enforcement of our borders and immigration laws.
We are still over a full year away from the 2008 elections... so please, TAKE THE TIME and compare Duncan Hunter to all the candidates on all of the issues and vote for the best candidate NOT the best known candidate.
Looking for the "REAL DEAL" Republican conservative?
The Missouri Republican Assembly say's Duncan Hunter truly represents the "Republican Wing of the Republican Party".
Find out why that is so and perhaps you too will support Duncan "The Real Deal" Hunter for President.
