Duncan Hunter on Principles & Values
Republican Representative (CA-52)
Collins was arrested on insider trading charges, while Hunter and his wife were charged with misusing campaign funds for personal expenses. Both have pleaded not guilty to the federal charges. Hunter and Collins infuriated their Republican colleagues by staying on the ballot in the midterms--and both won reelection. But shortly after the elections, the House GOP adopted a new conference rule forcing anyone under indictment for a felony to relinquish his or her committee assignments or leadership posts until the legal matter gets resolved.
One Congressman cited: "You know the old saying: Congress on the floor is Congress in theater. Congress in committee is Congress at work."
I believe very strongly that God still loves this nation, that we are still a people of faith, and hope, and character. And so I am running for the presidency. I want to lead this country and serve the American people. And I hope all of you will join me.
A: I think restoring what I call economic patriotism. You know, in World War I, World War II and the Cold War, we rode to victory on the arsenal of democracy. That’s our great industrial base, our ability to make things in this country, this magnificent manufacturing capability, which right now we’re pushing offshore, pushing to China, pushing to India, pushing to Japan. I would stop China from cheating on trade. I would level the playing field. I would bring back that arsenal of democracy that we need, not only for high-paying jobs in this country but also to defend the country. When my kid came back from Iraq, he wrote a great letter. And the last part of that letter said, “Families lift this country up. They provide us with fidelity, morality, faith in God, and raising the next generation of Americans.” Our work: to make sure that we elevate the American family and make a life of opportunity for that next generation of Americans.
No. Mayor Giuliani stood with Bill Clinton for the 1994 gun ban when I was fighting that. Governor Romney has passed what I consider to be a major step toward socialism with respect to his mandated health care bill. John McCain is standing strong with Ted Kennedy on this Kennedy-McCain-Bush border enforcement bill. I think the guy who’s got the most influence right here with these three gentlemen is Ted Kennedy. And I think we need to move away from the Kennedy Wing of the Republican Party.
The idea had been germinating well before Nixon offered his advice. Gingrich had spent four years seeing his fellow Republicans in the House react instead of act. Newt reached out first to Rep. Vin Weber of Minnesota. Together they recruited Robert Walker of Pennsylvania, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, Dan Coats of Indiana, Connie Mack of Florida, Joe Barton of Texas, and Dan Lundgren and Duncan Hunter of California. The group met weekly and planned.
"Trent Lott was the godfather," Gingrich recalls. "He hosted a weekly luncheon. Dick Cheney came. I thought Cheney or Lott would be the Republican leader and I'd be the senior planner."
The Adherents.com website is an independent project and is not supported by or affiliated with any organization (academic, religious, or otherwise).
Such factors as religious service attendance, belief, practice, familiarity with doctrine, belief in certain creeds, etc., may be important to sociologists, religious leaders, and others. But these are measures of religiosity and are usually not used academically to define a person’s membership in a particular religion. It is important to recognize there are various levels of adherence, or membership within religious traditions or religious bodies. There’s no single definition, and sources of adherent statistics do not always make it clear what definition they are using.
The new generation of pro-market, small government leaders filled such a need that in October 2007, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard profiled Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy and christened them the "young guns."
Kevin approached Eric & Paul about the idea of traveling together, as "Young Guns", to visit Republican candidates interested in a new approach for the party.
What began as an informal way to support like-minded candidates became a more formal structure. Once the three Representatives had studied the candidate and given their support to become a Young Gun, they committed to providing financial support through their campaign committees.
Existing House Republicans were approached with a simple pitch: Are we willing to help ourselves by being proactive and going on the offense to change this House? Dozens of our House Republican colleagues joined the Young Gun effort as one of the many signs that the Republican Party had shifted.
As Republican Members of the House of Representatives and as citizens seeking to join that body, we propose not just to change its policies, but to restore the bounds of trust between the people and their elected representatives. That is why, in this era of official evasion and posturing, we offer instead a detailed agenda for national renewal, a written commitment with no fine print.
