There has been a new website setup to encourage and support Lou Dobbs to run for president. At the website Lou Dobbs for President you can pledge your support and voice you opinion on why Lou should run for president.
I honestly believe that the current slate of presidential candidates is far lacking in their actual caring about the American people. Just looking at them it is obvious enough that they are all about personal ambition and do not have the best interests of the American people at heart. Oh sure, they talk a good game and have come up with solutions that are mostly based on what the polls show people want (for the moment at least), but they don't have that in their heart. And of course, once elected, they'll do whatever the hell they want.
I believe that we need someone else to step forward. Someone who does have a burning desire for the American people to succeed.
Lou Dobbs has said time and time again that he will not run for president, well almost. He has left the door open that if he has enough of the public pushing him he may take up the torch and run with it.
So what do you think? Is it time for a self described Independent-Populist to make a run for the White House?
What a huge breath of fresh air should Lou Dobbs throw his hat in the ring. I would definitely vote for him. He is the only voice in the MSM that is absolutely right on illegal immigration. Furthermore, he has taken on the economy, special interests, lobbyist influence peddling, government corruption, truth in government, religion in politics, free trade and favored trade status issues, national security, middle class erosion and American worker protection, our crumbling infrastructure, education, food safety and inspections, the environment, China's dangerous imports and its influence on our national deficit, NAFTA, SPP, NAU, LOST, ridiculous government treaties, crime, drugs, racial issues and the list goes on.
Lou Dobbs has talked about, taken stances on, exposed and researched more issues than any other presidential candidate ever has or ever will.
It would be great if Lou would run for president!!! He stands up for middle class America and is against all that is trying to destroy it!!!! I admire his stand against illegal immigration. We need a man like Lou who will represent us and not the globalist elites who are promoting illegal immigration!!!! RUN LOU RUN!!!!!

Lou Dobbs does have a degree in economic's but more than anything I think Lou has the good old common sense to surround himself with competant people, instead of his buddies. I believe his loyalty, compassion, principles and convictions for America and Americans can turn this country around and set it on the right course again. Wake up America before it is to late!
GOOOO LOU !!!!

As of 2006, California contained greater than 25% of the total illegal alien population within the U.S. Many of these illegals concentrate in Los Angeles. New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in November 2007 – up $3 million dollars from September. Twenty five percent of the all welfare and food stamps benefits are going directly to the children of illegal aliens. Illegals collected over $20 million in welfare assistance for November 2007 and over $16 million in monthly food stamp allocations for a projected annual cost of $444 million. “This new information shows an alarming increase in the devastating impact Illegal immigration continues to have on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich, LA County Supervisor. “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $444 million in welfare allocations, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year – not including the millions of dollars for education.”
Just keep in mind that the $37 million a month is for only one county in one state and is only welfare and foodstamp benefits. It doesn't include hospital care, education, fraud, wage depression, crime, depreciation of housing values, the portion of bad loans given to illegal aliens by banks, insurance costs and the myriad of other burdensome expenses that illegal aliens put on the backs of American citizens. There are 29 sanctuary cities in California and because of that there should be little wonder why so many illegal aliens stay in this state. They basically operate with impunity and even if they get arrested for a serious crime there is little chance of them being deported. They can sign up for welfare and food stamps with no questions asked and the hospitals provide them with free care as long as there are still emergency rooms that can’t turn them away for lack of funds. All things considered, California has rolled out the welcome mat for them.
Is there any wonder that California is right now in a fiscal crisis emergency with a budget deficit greater than $14 billion and growing? Reliable estimates calculate illegal aliens cost the state $10.5 billion each year! Why not cut all public services to those not in the U.S. legally? Just a simple thought on my part that would go a long way to putting California back on its feet. But, I digress…Lou Dobbs is the only news anchor who has been reporting and exposing this situation in the MSM.
