ANYONE but a democrap for us!!
How refreshing! We may actually have a choice of a non-politico! And someone with a great work ethic!
I agree_ refreshing!I look forward to learning more about him!
Careful what you wish for....Arnold was a "non politico" and look how messed up the state became under him.
I had the pleasure of meeting Judge Phan last year and was checking out his site. He seems to be a man of knowledge, integrity and resilience. He reminds me of Mc Cain-- and I don't mean the age;) I think his experience in Immigration will be valuable in dealing with the issue. I think the moderates of both side would like him, and hope they do come out to vote. Moderates tend not to vote as much and leave it to the extremists. We need more representatives like Judge Phan in Washington. Someone who has a stand, but open minded to listen to the argument and hope he will do what is best for the people.
Disclosure: another potential candidate I know showed me the Judge's open letter, but I am writing on my own behalf.
The Judge explains why he wants to go to Congress as follows:
"I decided...to run for the U.S. Congress... because I believe that the free Vietnamese-Americans and the people of Vietnam should have a voice on the international forum; and at this time, the forum is the U.S. Congress."
I am astonished this candidate would receive either Party's endorsement. I believe members of Congress, whatever their background, should represent Americans, not the population of another country.
I also noticed the Judge is on both sides of every issue. He wants American leadership in the world, but believes in "a balance of power." He believes in the sanctity of life and wouldn't uphold abortion, but he wouldn't interfere in a woman's private choice. He believes in 2nd Amendment rights, but those right have "to be tempered to protect the general safety of our society."
So other than being the voice of the Vietnamese people, what does this candidate stand for?
I would think that republicans, especially the affluent, consider themselves, informed voters.
So if you really want a better representative, do yourself a favor and read about whom your choice of candidate says himself, he will be representing, once you send him to Wash. DC. Web Link
What do you call the people who voted for Obama, because he is Black? "Drones".
What would you call educated people who vote for a candidate, only because he has an "R" behind his name? "Dumber Drones"
