In all honesty, I can't vote for any Democrat. I very much oppose abortion on demand. I believe it is the murder of innocents, therefore, if I give my vote to a politician who supports murder I am a murderer myself.

I do believe that in years to come a new conservative party will come into existence -- one we can all support. I believe it will be a necessity since the Democrats and Republicans, as we now know them, will no longer exist.

Wait until election day, 2004 and see what misery Bush is dishing out for us at that time, and vote accordingly, I guess.

2004 Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is hereby drafted to run for President of the United States of America in 2004

To:  Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO)

We the Citizens of the United States of America do hereby draft the Honorable Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo from Colorado to run for the Office of President of the United States of America.


Congressman Tancredo gives Citizens who are fed up with Illegal Immigration a true feeling of hope for the future. He understands the financial drain Illegal Immigration causes on the average hard-working American. He fights to close our borders, while other lawmakers grant amnesty and visas to lawbreakers. Therefore, the Undersigned do respectfully ask Congressman Tom Tancredo to run for President in 2004.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

___________________SITUATION REPORT______________________

Twenty years ago a high school drop out could get a job in construction, trucking, or manufacturing, and still do pretty well for himself. Well enough to own a car and afford some type of housing, by the age of twenty.

One by one these jobs have been outsourced, or filled by a wage suppressing immigrant, lowering the expectation and living standard of many Americans. Such is not suppose to be the case. In raising the boat of third world nations we have sunk the boats of many average Americans. Meanwhile those that stick it out through college are finding their jobs outsourced and their options limited.

Why do you think so many people my age are enraged, we know what has happened, we know America is being stripmined, and youth who has never known anything else, raised in the fed propaganda camps, have no clue of how badly they have been robbed.

You are merely parroting the propaganda of the enemy like a good little public school student. There are not that many white collar jobs and in fact all jobs have been artificially manipulated out of the country, or by immigrants in country all due to deadly socialist government policies and freedom robbing Free Trade.

Rounding up 10 million illegal aliens at one time would be physically impossible. Shipping them back to Mexico (the vast majority) at one time would be physically impossible.

However, rounding them up when caught or reported and sending them back in batches would be relatively easy. Anybody on this forum could think of several ways to implement this without straining themselves.

If the "physically impossible" notion is malarkey, and it is, what else about the plan, that is not readily apparent, is also malarkey?

My plan says take what you have and leave or if we catch you, you'll go without anything but the clothes on your back!

"The National Population Council reported that 9.9 million Mexicans call America home and that more than 7.82 million of those - or 79 percent - do not have U.S. citizenship. It did not break down how many had legal residence papers."

"According to a RoperASW poll from last year, 83 percent of Americans support mandatory detention and forfeiture of property for illegal immigrants, followed by deportation."

I'm one of the 83%.

If the President Bush or Tom Ridge would announce that in six months they will be paying a $50 per head bounty for each illegal alien on American soil there would be a mad rush for the borders.

A policeman in a car costs the average city about $200 an hour. Helicopters cost at least $2000 an hour with the ground crews. What is the full cost of a teacher per hour? $140.00 or there about.

If we could get illegal aliens to turn each other in, just the ones trying to slip through the net, (I know thousands would attempt it) we would save billions in law enforcement, welfare programs, unemployment, medical care, job training and schools the first year.

Do all this under Executive Order and tell the Courts to back off. This is national security!

Any employer who has employed an illegal alien more than five months from the announcement date will be fined $5000 per employee. One month later enforcement begins. This will give employers 5 months to shed the illegals and hire legally papered actual American citizens.

Then on the announced date, start in a state such as Oklahoma. Well centered, not overly populated and clean the state out. This would give Homeland, INS and Border Patrol time to install their co-agents in various court houses around the country to verify a persons paperwork, i.e.. birth certificates, hospital records, etc.

Go state to state from the epicenter sweeping out the criminals who have successfully avoided suspicion. They already had 5 months to get out, hanging around to test the system carries a SEVERE penalty. They won't be able to say they weren't warned.

Divide a state into quadrants depending on population per square mile., First arrest those whose names were turn in for the bounty. Then others suspected by local law agencies. When arrests slow down, open an adjoining quadrant.

Get caught after the selected dated and the result would be every foreign national who is not in America legally would forfeit all their belongings (houses, cars, bank accounts, etc.) and be deported within 24 hours. These forfeited belongings would then be given to local churches for distribution to the needy in that community. Another cost saver!

This enforcement would apply to illegals from every country in the world, not just Mexico.

Imagine the number of Chinese who would be taking the ship home with everything in the house, new cars, you name it would be on those ships. The thousands of Canadians who decided the USA was better than Canada would be again headed North.

How many schools could be closed? How many hospitals and state paid housing tracts? How many welfare offices? How many planned jail enlargements could be stopped for lack of need?

How many state and federal employees would find out that they have the time to actually give good service to their American customers?

Oh yes, it would be an economic shocker in the amount of taxes that could be reduced or used to actually improve something needed for American citizens, instead of illegal foreigners.

Want an approximate number of the population drop? Try 50 million+ with the majority over 30 years of age, having been illegal residents of America for over ten years.

I've always wondered how many folks are on Medicare that don't deserve it. I'll bet that would save a big chuink of money that could be used for American war veterans and citizens health problems.

Just imagine the frantic squealing from our politicians thinking of the lost votes and contributions. That would be a sideshow worth watching!

To: All
As stated in at least a thousand FReeper posts, Bush's bold new reform plan is just that - an outline to be presented to the Hill for legislatoin enactment.

And as also stated, for coming forth with an initiative to change the status quo and end the crisis, something no predecessor has done sine 1986 is commendable

But something has gone terribly wrong and critical errorss in the terminology of the plan have now brought illegal immigration reform up to being an issue of equal, if not greater priority than even gettng out of Iraq.

"Out of sight out of mind," they say. But the illegal immigrant invasion of Anytown, USA can no longer be swept under the rug - put on the "back burner." The issue closest to home is what is heaviest on people's mind.

The instant Bush opened his mouth with the idea of a "National Job Locator" - a government operated, sponsored and driven system to find jobs that no American would want, in a split second managed to lose him 10% of his staunchest support base.

Don't mess with Texas has worked great for Texas. Dubya's style is written all over it and many people all over the country have looked to the ahievements Dubya did while gubner and said, "Hey - I kinda like that. Maybe he can do that for the whole country."

But a great political machine is a fickle thing that if you "mess" with it too much, can crackle and almost instantly fall to pieces right before your very eyes.

Don't mess with America is now on the mind and lips of millions of life-long Republicans who felt they were holding onto a 220V livewire standing in six inches of water when they heard Dubya's ideas on how to "fix" the immigration crisis.

And these are not RINOs - these are CORE REPUBLICANS Bush cannot afford to Disenfranchise.

The sting has been stung and the bite has been done. It may not heal for many on the relieving end in the nine months between January and the November elections.

And for those banking on these early bird polls believing Bush can ride the tailwinds of our military's great achievements into the White House in 2004, all they have to do is turn a page in time back to November, 1992.

The president is a good fence mender. This may be the hardest fence he has ever mended. And he'll have to do it in record time - the cows are getting out all over the field and it's getting close milking time.

FReepers are pretty a pretty savvy bunch when it comes to protecting our nation, its borders, its economy, its heritage, and its workers.

Can over 1,900 FReepers be wrong?

~ Take the FReeper Poll ~

Question ...

After hearing President Bush's speech, do you approve of his immigration reform plan?

Yes
602 votes - 21%

No
1,914 votes - 67%

Undecided
323 votes - 11%

2,839 votes total; you voted "No"

I prefer a ZERO worker program. This is just not going to be enforced. Period. Stop ALL illegal immigration. Seal the borders.

I propose legislation instead that would include EMPLOYERS WHO HIRE ILLEGALS be added to the RICO laws. Take away the jobs and the Uncle Sugar taxpayer freebies and they'll run right back to Mexico where they belong.

America The Beautiful Grassroots Movement In Cochise County

"America the Beautiful has begun its first campaigns in Southern Arizona’s Cochise County border area. The problem is spread across the southern border, but the ‘hot spot’ to cross into the country illegally is Cochise County. The number of people crossing nightly has been estimated at more than a 1,000. Take this number times the estimated 8 pounds of trash each illegal alien leaves behind, and this will give you an idea of the scope of the situation we face. Backpacks and clothing don’t grow in the desert nor do toothbrushes, but walk any of the trails and washes and you may question this assumption."

FWIW, the greatest testimony to the greatness of Americans and the American Spirit can be seen in each one of us here tonight.

Where else in the world could we openly and publicly exercise the freedom of speech we enjoy here on FR (or anywhere else in this country)?

What we say about ourselves is one thing. But what other nations say about us should not go unrepeated either.

The leaders in Israel were saying last week that the fall of Saddam Hussein has had a greater impact on bringing peace to the Middle East than anytime in modern history, even in the last 1,000 years. And who would know this better than them what the ravages of war, racial and religious hatred, and the assault on your sovereign homeland can bring.

Was Bush responsible for this? Yes, but not only Bush.

Let me give you a glimpse into what a real hero is.

When Time Magazine came to Donald Rumsfeld with the nomination for the 2003 man of the year - he turned it down saying there were far more worthy recipients.

He knows who the real heroes of this nation are - and he said so. The American Soldier. They are the ones fig ting, dying, leaving wifes, babies, mothers, fathers, sweethearts and loved ones behind.

And for what? For what I ask each one of you.

Is it so they can die on a cold hate-filled battlefield on a sandbar half way around the world for a country who won't even protect it's own sovereignty and borders from an invasion every bit as potent to the ruin of America as 9/11/01 was?

I wonder what our boys being shot at right now in Baghdad would think if they knew the nation they are laying their lives on the line for is not worth more than a voting majority on election day.

IT'S THE SOLDIER


It's the soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the
PRESS.

It's the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of
SPEECH.

It's the soldier, not the campus
ORGANIZER,
Who has given us the freedom to
DEMONSTRATE

It's the soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a
FAIR TRIAL.
It's the soldier who salutes the flag,
Serves under the flag
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who gives the protester the right to burn the flag.


-Father D. E. O'Brien
