THE BEST DEFENSE -- A GOOD OFFENSE!
Believing firmly in the above attitude, Ol' Tuck is proud this week to align thoughts and beliefs with those Republican candidates who have seen fit to offer themselves to you -- THE AMERICAN PEOPLE -- for services above and beyond The Call of Duty!
It takes a strong man or woman to stand against adversity when those offering that diversity do not see fit to function under the same beliefs and authority that you expect from yourself. Deceit can be a demanding mistress.
That is exactly the field of defense in which the Republican candidates for President of The United States find themselves today. The political opponents of these patriots have seen fit to pit them one against the other in a blatant effort to gain political control of America in a way that is not only unprecedented -- it is totally unacceptable to most of us.
