As I researched the candidates, I found only one whom I believe I can truly support for the presidency -- former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson.
Thompson believes in federalism -- understanding the need to keep the balance of power between local, state and federal governments, and that too much power vested in too few hands in Washington makes for an unresponsive government that tramples our constitutional rights.
Only Thompson can hold the Reagan Republican coalition together to defeat the Democratic nominee in November. He does this by being an across-the-board conservative -- strong on social policy, fiscal policy, defense issues, protecting our Second Amendment rights and stopping illegal immigration. He understands that securing our nation should be our top priority, whether by building our military against the Islamist threat, or securing our borders at home.
I hope that you will join me in support of Thompson's campaign for the presidency.
