Skip to comments.A true maverick for Colorado: Who’s afraid of Tom Tancredo?
Posted on 06/14/2014 1:36:56 PM PDT by Impala64ssa
Panicked liberals and crony Republican elitists agree: Tom Tancredo would be bad for their Big Government and Big Business rackets. Thats exactly why I support him in Colorados June 24 GOP primary election for governor. A fear-mongering ad campaign by the left-wing group ProgressNow, which is funded by billionaire George Soros, hyperventilated last week that Tancredo believes Obamacare is a scam. Gasp! Scam is putting it politely, of course. Billions of dollars have been wasted on defunct and dysfunctional Obamacare health exchanges. Criminals, illegal aliens and con artists have been hired as navigators to sign up Obamacare enrollees (a.k.a. future Democratic voters). And millions of Americans of all backgrounds, including my family, have had their plans canceled thanks to the costs and regulatory burdens of the law. Workers have seen their wages and hours cut; employers, especially small and family-owned businesses, have been forced to drop coverage. Its absurd to call Tancredos dead-on diagnosis of Obamacare radical. But the pile-on against Tancredo isnt just coming from out-of-touch Democrats. Here in Colorado, many corporatist Republicans who support the suicidal push for illegal alien amnesty claim Tancredo cant win because his divisive, unrelenting stance on securing Americas borders (gasp again!) will scare away Hispanic voters. This attack on Tancredo is nonsense on stilts.

I always liked Tancredo and supported him is his presidential run. He’s just not slick enough for modern America, but is a great guy who would be terrific in the quest to turn Colorado around.
I will vote for him.
My impression of Tom Tancredo is that he is a xenophobe who is opposed to all immigration. The United States needs more legal immigration and he fails to understand that. He is opposed to illegal immigrants and amnesty so that seems to be the only thing he gets right on the immigration issue.
You’re kind of special aren’t you?
40 million LEGAL immigrants since 1965 not enough for you ? Most legal immigrants vote democratic....by a large amount.
I am special enough to know that only an ignorant person wants to block all legal immigration. I stand against all Freepers who have an agenda that involves blocking all legal immigration.
Based on what?!?
I'm here in the Silicon Valley, and my experienced American Citizen engineering friends are going years between jobs!!
Meanwhile, foreigners flood this place, and radically change the culture, the morals, and even the language.
Do you want to block all legal immigration like Tancredo?
And I stand against anyone who stands for further flooding our country when over a hundred million of our fellow citizens are out of work!
Answer MY question: is 40 million LEGAL immigrants, most of who vote democrat, not enough ?
You stop all legal immigration and the US economy will go to the toilet. Many foreign firms wanting to set up headquarters in the US would effectively be prevented from doing so.
Stop with the rhetoric. Answer my question. Do you want all legal immigration blocked?
The we get this from the Dummies.
"DENVER Democrats really dont want former Rep. Bob Beauprez to win this months Colorado GOP gubernatorial primary, so theyre hitting the airwaves with television ads aimed at boosting his nearest rival, former Rep. Tom Tancredo.
Protect Colorado Values, a Democrat-backed 527 committee, released a reverse-psychology ad Thursday in the Denver media market that declares Mr. Tancredo is too conservative for Colorado because hes still one of the countrys strongest opponents of Obamacare. " -snip-
"Denver pollster Floyd Ciruli said the Democrats goal is to get not only what they perceive as the weakest candidate against Hickenlooper, but also the candidate that could potentially in their view cause the most damage and be the easiest to attack. "
That is obviously not enough as I want legal immigration to continue.
Do you want all legal immigration blocked?
I've seen so much abuse of the system that it makes me sick to think that anyone who calls themselves "patriotic" can claim to support it.
And I know people who lost family members to suicide because THEY CAN'T FIND WORK.
foregoing = forego
I want immigration levels taken down to the historical levels of about 200,000 a year that we had in place from 1924 until 1965.
