» Huckabee Unfairly Criticized For "Living, Breathing Constitution" Line from Ace of Spades HQ
I think this says more about his off-the-cuff dog-ate-my-homework thought processes, such as they are, than about his actual concept of constitutionalism. There's no doubt that the "living Constitution" terminology is one favored by the left as a justi... [Read More]

You Are So Delusional

umm, joseph, where exactly did I predict a victory for Thompson? the closest I got was a "look for" statement which isnt exactly firm, THATS MORE OF A MAYBE, if things line up right. If I felt he was a lock, why even bother to write this? And dont bother comming back, I dont like having stupid people misrepresent my words.

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.

Please help Fred win in 2008:

Well, S.C. used to be a Conservative/Red state, if the vote is any indication, No Mo! I used to live and work in Columbia,S.C. many, many years ago! Had this older gentleman take me for a walking tour of the Capital over one lunch, he showed me all the Canon ball marks that us yankees put in the Wade Hampton(SP?) bldg!!:)

Course he made sure to tell me the difference between a yankee and a "Damn Yankee!"

Yankees come visit and go home, "Damn Yankees," stay! I'm beginnin to think there are too many "Damn Yankees" in S.C.!!

I've donated to Fred's campaign twice, as long as he decides to stay in, I'll continue! If the Pubs nominate McNutt, Rudy, or Romney, it'll go down in flames! Used to call myself a Pub, NO Mo!!

The cannonballs hit the state capitol bldg, not the Wade Hampton office bldg behind the capitol. All yankees lately are Damn Yankees..scalawags,too. For you the un-educated a scalawag was a turncoat person of Southern birth who sided with the yankees and reconstruction. Point of order..if slavery was the reason for secession..then why did the South reject the proposed constitutional amendment by northern democrats such as Ohio's Vlandaningham(sp?) to appease Southerners to stay in the union?
Thanks for your support, Mike. you are what we call a copperhead and not a yankee.For those who wonder what a copperhead is, well look it up. DEO VINDICE!
