Still, if he's anti-war, anti-tax and anti-spend, and bucking the GOP machine, he's probably an order of magnitude better than any of the alternatives.
    Every bit counts. Thank you.

    BTW I beleive he voted against warrantless wiretaps.

    The Hoss is solid. He's not a neo-con, and really dislikes them.
    The evils of the protecting-duty, may undoubtedly be graduated by compromises, like those of every other species of tyranny, but the folly of letting in some tyranny has in all ages been fatal to liberty. A succession of wedges, though apparently small, finally splits the strongest timber. ~John Taylor of Caroline, Tyranny Unmasked

    We have four boxes with which to defend our freedom: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. ~Congressman Larry McDonald.

    If dollars translated to favorable poll numbers, the Hoss would be deadmeat right now:

    Coats raised $379,299 though March thanks to his past ties with GOP heavyweights.

    Stutzman the "lowly farmer" turned politician somehow raised $226,847.

    Even Behney the goddamned plumber outraised Hoss with $47,199.

    And bringing up the rear, the old Hoss with a disappointing 37k.

    Now how is Hostettler polling within the margin of error? It's amazing how badly he's getting beat down in fundraising and still remains highly competitive.

    Levin loves Stutzman predictably:

    1) Ron Paul has endorsed John Hostettler for Senate.
    2) Hostettler voted Ron Paul in the 2008 presidential primary and said he would do it again in 2012.
    3) Hostettler, like Ron Paul, voted for Chuck Baldwin in the 2008 presidential election.
    4) Hostettler voted against the Iraq War, and argued for that vote from the House floor in a speech that articulated a clear noninterventionist foreign policy.
    5) Hostettler continued to stand up for that policy, writing a book against the Iraq war, which Ron Paul highly recommends.
    6) Hostettler’s record of noninterventionist foreign policy extends back into the Clinton years as well, when he opposed intervention in Kosovo.
    7) Hostettler speaks against fear mongering about Iran and the popular belligerent talk against that nation. He was also one of only 6 Republicans in 2006 to vote against a resolution “To Hold the Current Regime in Iran Accountable for Its Threatening Behavior and to Support a Transition to Democracy in Iran.”
    8) Hostettler is against all foreign aid.
    9) Hostettler voted against Medicare Part D. In fact, Ron Paul and John Hostettler are the only 2 Republicans to have voted against both the Iraq War and Medicare Part D.
    10) Hostettler explicitly opposes all federal exercise of powers not among those enumerated in the Constitution.
    11) Hostettler voted against No Child Left Behind.
    12) Hostettler authored a bill to end federal income tax withholding.
    13) Hostettler said while in office and continues to say that he supports total elimination of the federal income tax.
    14) Hostettler sponsored bills to eliminate the Department of Education.
    15) Hostettler sponsored bills to eliminate the Department of Energy.
    16) Hostettler sponsored bills to eliminate the Department of Commerce.
    17) Hostettler has stated publicly that he supports auditing and even abolishing the Federal Reserve.
    18) One of Hostettler’s first acts in Congress was signing on as a sponsor of legislation to repeal the Brady Bill and assault weapons ban.
    19) Hostettler authored a bill to facilitate reciprocity of concealed carry permits between states that respected the 10th Amendment and did not include national standards.
    20) Hostettler singlehandedly shut down a deal between the Clinton administration and Smith & Wesson that would have used the power of the Executive branch to bypass the legislature and impose regulations on the ownership and sales of guns by manipulating the market for guns in its awarding of government contracts. Hostettler did this by a series of amendments introduced into appropriations bills.
    21) Hostettler has demonstrated that he shares Ron Paul’s commitment to shutting down judicial activism by leading Congress to exercise its constitutionally enumerated power of making regulations and exceptions for the jurisdiction of the judicial branch. Ron Paul has done this with his We the People Act and Sanctity of Life Act, and Hostettler did it with the Public Expressions of Religion Act, which he authored and successfully got to be voted on and passed in the House of Representatives (later to be rejected by the Senate), as well as the Marriage Protection Act of 2003, and various amendments to appropriations bills over the years legislating that no funds be used in the enforcement of activist court decisions.
    22) Hostettler is pro-life.
    23) Hostettler supports repealing Obamacare.
    24) Hostettler joins Ron Paul in supporting the use of earmarks.
    25) Hostettler voted against warrantless wiretaps.
    26) Hostettler voted against the creation of the Department of Homeland Security.
    27) Hostettler opposes a national ID card.
    28) Hostettler voted against every so-called free trade agreement that was brought to a vote in his tenure in Congress.
    29) Hostettler sponsored a bill to withdraw from the World Trade Organization.
    30) Hostettler led the fight in the immigration subcommittee of the House judiciary committee to keep the House from passing the amnesty for illegal immigrants that President Bush supported, after that bill had passed the Senate.
    31) Hostettler cosponsored Ron Paul’s amendments to appropriations bills for defunding the United Nations.
    32) Hostettler voted against the $52 Billion Katrina aid package.
    33) Even on issues where Hostettler disagrees with Ron Paul, he always gives clear, well-thought-out, principled, Constitution-based reasons for those differences. This can be seen in his interview with the Indiana state coordinator of the Campaign for Liberty. Ron Paul expresses his own appreciation for this quality of Hostettler’s in his endorsement.
    34) Hostettler has stood many times in defiance of the wishes of his own party’s leadership.
    35) Hostettler is recognized by friend and foe as a champion of the Constitution.
    36) In the Senate Hostettler will vote on and question judicial nominees. He will be able to bring to bear in this questioning a level of seriousness about the Constitution that no current senator has.
    37) In the Senate Hostettler will be able to exercise much more influence than what just one member of the House of Representatives can exercise.
    38) Hostettler refused PAC money for all 7 of his House races.
    39) Hostettler would make a great ally for Rand Paul in the Senate.
    40) In 2008 Ron Paul had zero endorsements from any sitting members of the House or Senate. He could have at least two endorsements of sitting senators if we elect Hostettler.
    41) Hostettler is polling neck-and-neck with the GOP establishment pick, Dan Coats.
    42) Hostettler polls better than every other Republican candidate against Brad Ellsworth in the general election matchup.
    43) It is widely believed that the reason Coats was recruited back to Indiana to run again was out of fear of the party leaders having to deal with an uncompromising constitutional conservative like Hostettler. The timing of the Republican leaders’ recruiting of Mike Pence and then Dan Coats to run, right after a poll had shown Hostettler within the margin of error in a general election matchup against Evan Bayh, combined with the fact that every single general election poll shows Hostettler performing better than Coats against every possible Democrat opponent, suggests that to be the case.
    44) Hostettler sponsored a bill allowing parents not to get social security numbers for their children without having to forego their tax deduction.
    45) When most Republicans voted to end the government shutdown of 1996 by passing the unbalanced budget Clinton wanted them to (driven in part by the presidential aspirations of Bob Dole), Hostettler was one of only a handful of Republicans to vote against it.
    46) Anti-war Republican congressman, Walter Jones says, “The president [Bush] was calling people as late as 1 or 2 in the morning to get them to vote for the Medicare prescription drug benefit, John voted his conscience first, not his party…. I admire him so much. He knows more about the Constitution than almost anyone in Congress.”
    47) The RNC member who was most active in recruiting Dan Coats, Jim Bopp, was the very same one who orchestrated the last minute rules change for the Indiana Republican state convention in 2008 that was used to prevent Ron Paul supporting delegates from exercising any influence on the delegate selection process there.
    48) In legislation that Hostettler supports pursuant to his staunch socially conservative beliefs, he always takes an approach that is consistent with the 10th Amendment.
    49) There were only 3 Republican senators who voted against the confirmation of Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court. If Hostettler were in the Senate for that vote, he would have been #4.
    50) There were only 17 Republican Congressmen who opposed all 5 bailouts of 2008-2009. If Hostettler were in Congress at that time, he would have been #18.

    Bump for renewed relevance.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    This guy started out decent with a Freedom Index score of 80% in 1999, but by 2005-2006 fell down to 68%. He might be a shade slightly better(?) than a neocon challenger, but Hostettler seems to be another run-of-the-mill republican himself. IMO, no liberty-oriented candidate would ever vote in favor of Military Tribunals, Patriot Act (twice), Headstart Funding, Federal Education grants, NATO expansion, Foreign Aid giveaways, or other things listed below.



    John Hostettler
    Representative
    Indiana District 8
    Republican
    Status: Former Legislator


    Voted YES on H.R. 6166 Military Tribunals
    We Oppose. Under this bill, a defendant's rights would be curtailed: he would be denied the right of habeas corpus; he could be detained indefinitely; and evidence obtained through coercion could be used against him--so long as the coercion falls outside the administration's definition of torture.

    Voted NO on H.R. 5631 Iran Military Operations
    We Support. The power to declare war belongs to Congress, not to the president, and such power should not be in the hands of one man. The amendment would bar any funds to initiate military operations in Iran unless it is in accordance with Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, which delegates to Congress alone the power to declare war.

    Voted YES on H.R. 5384 Agriculture Appropriations
    We Oppose. Federal aid to farmers and federal food aid to individuals are not authorized by the Constitution.

    Voted YES on H.R. 4939 Supplemental Appropriations
    We Oppose. Even if the spending were constitutional, the funding should be voted on as part of the regular appropriations process and not introduced after the fact as "emergency" spending, ignoring fiscal responsibility.

    Voted YES on H.R. 3199 Patriot Act Reauthorization
    We Oppose. The Patriot Act tramples on the constitutionally protected rights of U.S. citizens.

    Voted YES on H.R. 3010 Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations
    We Oppose. This bill would provide an increase in spending, and social-welfare programs are unconstitutional.

    Voted YES on H.R. 2123 Head Start Funding
    We Oppose. This bill would further federalize the educational system, and federal aid to education is unconstitutional.

    Voted YES on H.R. 3 Surface Transportation
    We Oppose. This bill increases transportation spending and is fiscally irresponsible.

    Voted YES on H.R. 3199 Patriot Act Reauthorization
    We Oppose. The Patriot Act tramples on the constitutionally protected rights of U.S. citizens.

    Voted YES on H R 2745 Henry J. Hyde United Nations Reform Act
    We Oppose. UN "Reforms." On the surface, this United Nations "reform" bill (H.R. 2745) appears to be a "conservative" get-tough response to UN corruption. It would withhold up to 50 percent of U.S. dues to the UN unless the UN makes certain operational changes, and many "conservatives" voted for it. In reality, the legislation calls for strengthening the UN in the name of "reform." Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) warned in his June 13 Texas Straight Talk column that the "reform" bill supports creation of a "Peace-building Commission," which "will serve as the implementing force for the internationalization of what were formerly internal affairs of sovereign nations."

    Voted YES on H R 1268 Making emergency supplemental appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, and for other purposes.
    We Oppose. Supplemental Appropriations. The final version (conference report) of this supplemental appropriations bill (H.R. 1268) would add another $82 billion to the federal budget.

    Voted YES on H R 3550 Transportation Equity Act
    We Oppose. Surface Transportation. This bill (H.R. 3550) would authorize $284 billion in federal aid for highway, mass transit, and safety and research programs.

    Voted YES on H R 3289 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Defense and for the Reconstruction of Iraq and Afghanistan
    We Oppose. Supplemental Spending for Iraq & Afghanistan. The final version (conference report) of H.R. 3289 would appropriate $87.5 billion in supplemental fiscal 2004 spending for military operations and reconstruction in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is the largest supplemental that Congress has ever passed. Of this total, military operations would receive $65.8 billion. Iraq reconstruction would be funded by grants totaling $18.6 billion, while reconstruction in Afghanistan would receive $1.2 billion.

    Voted YES on S. 2578 Debt Limit
    We Oppose. The supposed need for increasing the debt ceiling by $450 billion demonstrates that the federal government is still on a trajectory of out-of-control spending. Instead of raising the legal limit on what the federal government may borrow, Congress should cut spending.

    Voted YES on H R 3717 Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Act
    We Oppose. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). This bill would merge two FDIC insurance funds and increase the amount of FDIC-protected money in individual bank accounts from $100,000 to $130,000. As is the case with most agencies created by Congress, FDIC is just another example of an unconstitutional activity of the federal government.

    Voted YES on H R 2646 Farm Security Act
    We Oppose. Farm Bill. The final version (conference report) of H.R. 2646 amends and extends the major farm income support, land conservation, food assistance, trade promotion, rural development, research, forestry, and energy programs administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. When combined with estimated spending already authorized prior to enactment of this law, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that "H.R. 2646 will bring total spending for the above programs to $73.7 billion in 2002 … and $869.3 billion over the 2002-2012 period. Of these totals, food assistance programs account for $51.3 billion in 2002 … and $626.8 billion over the 2002-2012 period." Constitutionalists have denounced H.R. 2646 because it repudiates free-market principles and authorizes vast amounts of unconstitutional spending.

    Voted YES on H R 3210 Terrorism Risk Protection Act
    We Oppose. Terrorism Insurance. This bill (H.R. 3210) would authorize a three-year federal loan program to help the casualty and property insurance industry cover future terrorist-related losses. The loans would pay 90 percent of claims arising from acts of terrorism next year that result in more than $1 billion in insured claims. The loans would be repaid through assessments on insurance companies to repay insured claims for up to $20 billion. Loans for insured claims beyond $20 billion and up to $100 billion would be repaid through surcharges on commercial policyholders. This bill would also restrict terrorist-related lawsuits to federal court, ban punitive damages in such suits, and limit non-economic damages and attorneys fees.

    Voted YES on H R 3167 NATO Expansion. Gerald B.H. Solomon Freedom Consolidation Act
    We Oppose. NATO Expansion. This bill’s self-described purpose (H.R. 3167) is: "To endorse the vision of further enlargement of the NATO Alliance articulated by President George W. Bush on June 15, 2001, and by former President William J. Clinton on October 22, 1996…." In this bill the House "… reaffirms its [Congress’] previous expressions of support for continued enlargement of the NATO Alliance contained in the NATO Participation Act of 1994, the NATO Enlargement Facilitation Act of 1996, and the European Security Act of 1998…." This bill also authorizes a total of $55.5 million in military aid for fiscal 2002 for Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, and Romania. However, Congress should be acting to preserve our national sovereignty by getting our nation out of NATO. NATO was established as a subsidiary of the United Nations by the North Atlantic Treaty (April 4, 1949), which stated in its Article 1: "The Parties undertake, as set forth in the Charter of the United Nations, … to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations."

    Voted YES on H.R. 3162 Anti-Terrorism Authority
    We Oppose. This bill expands the list of crimes deemed terrorist acts; increases the ability of law enforcement to secretly search homes and business records; expands the FBI's wiretapping and surveillance authority; and provides for nationwide jurisdiction for search warrants and electronic surveillance devices, including the legal extension of those devices to e-mail and the Internet.

    Voted YES on H R 2926 Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act
    We Oppose. Airline Bailout. After the September 11th terrorist attacks, the House voted on a bailout for the airline industry known as the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (H.R. 2926). This Act would provide $5 billion in cash, and up to $10 billion in loan guarantees, for air carriers.

    Voted YES on H R 4811 Foreign Operations Appropriations
    We Oppose. Fiscal 2001 Foreign Aid Giveaways. This bill would waste $13.3 billion for international giveaways and export subsidies. Although the bill represents a $451 million cut from fiscal 2000, one dime in foreign aid is one dime too much.

    Voted NO on H R 4392 On Agreeing to H. Amdt. 738 to H R 4392
    We Support. Disclose Intelligence Spending to Congress. Representative Tim Roemer (D-IN) offered this amendment to require the CIA director to submit an unclassified report every year to Congress on total spending on intelligence operations.

    Voted YES on H R 853 On Agreeing to H. Amdt. 709 to H R 853
    We Oppose. Automatic Funding of the Welfare State. Representative George Gekas (R-PA) offered this dangerous amendment to automatically renew funding for any of the regular 13 appropriations bills at the previous year’s spending level if they are not en-acted into law by the new fiscal year. According to Representative Jim Walsh (R-NY), under the amendment, Congress would "yield more power to the President by putting the government out on automatic pilot."

    Voted NO on H R 3908 On Agreeing to H. Amdt. 642 to H R 3908
    We Support. DEA Funding Cuts. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) offered this amendment to the fiscal 2000 supplemental appropriations bill. It called for a $293 million cut in Drug Enforcement Administration funding, a $186 million cut in funding for drug-fighting by the Defense Department, and another $1.1 billion cut in economic aid to Colombia. The amendment also would halt funding for military construction outside the U.S. and would end funding for military operations in Kosovo and East Timor, unless the funds were used to bring the troops home. In floor debate, Paul described his amendment as dealing with a "monster" of "careless foreign military interventionism."

    Voted YES on H R 3908 Making Emergency Supplemental Appropriations
    We Oppose. Money for Foreign Intervention. The fiscal 2000 supplemental appropriations bill provides $13.2 billion for a number of measures, including funding for operations in Kosovo and East Timor ($5 billion), aid to combat drugs in Colombia ($1.7 billion), and Defense Department funding ($4 billion).

    Voted NO on On Agreeing to H. Amdt. 612 to H CON RES 290
    We Support. 2001 Budget by Conservative -Action Team. Representative John Sununu (R-NH) proposed this substitute budget amendment on behalf of the Conservative Action Team. This amendment would freeze non-defense discretionary spending, increase defense spending, and provide for $270 billion in tax cuts.

    Voted YES on H R 3064 District of Columbia Appropriations Act
    We Oppose. Labor/HHS/Education Spending. This $317 billion appropriations bill is the main funding measure for the federal welfare state during fiscal 2000. This bill would amount to an increase over the bloated fiscal 1999 appropriation of nearly nine percent. This increase still wasn’t enough for President Clinton; some of his Democratic supporters joined stalwart opponents of the welfare state in voting against the bill.

    Voted YES on H R 2 Student Results Act
    We Oppose. Federal Education Grants. This legislation would fund Title I spending — which dispenses grants to primary and secondary schools — to the tune of $9.9 billion. This represents a 28 percent increase over fiscal 1999! Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) explained that, "like most federal programs, Title I was launched with the best of intentions, however, good intentions are no excuse for Congress to exceed its constitutional limitations by depriving parents, local communities and states of their rightful authority over education. The Tenth Amendment does not contain an exception for ‘good intentions’!"
