Tom Tancredo for Colorado Governor


To say Tom Tancredo has taken a strong position on the problem of the invasion of illegal aliens is an understatement. He was one of the lone voices in either party urging the government to do something about our open, unsecured borders. Tancredo is running for the office of Colorado governor. He is closing the gap against the front runner, a Democrat.

RealClearPolitics linked to a TheDailyBeast article, "Immigration Hawk Could Win" by Bryan Curtis, on their website. The article related how Tancredo irked even his fellow Republicans, "When he suggested that the Bush administration’s border-security policies could allow another terrorist attack, Karl Rove, in Tancredo’s florid telling, called the congressman a “traitor” and told him “never again to darken the doorstep of the White House.”" Now that's my kind of statesmen! He has the courage of his convictions.

Tancredo is a third-party candidate. The Republican candidate has had some major setbacks and is running in the single digit. The Democratic candidate is the mayor of Denver, which is a sanctuary city, which flies in the face of solving the illegal immigration problem. His opponent is a a big-time liberal.

We need to do something about our open borders. Tancredo as governor, like Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, would be another loud voice crying in the wilderness and drawing attention of an issue both the Democrats and Republicans want to keep under the rug.

Tom Tancredo, who also ran for President, would have made a much better President than the two less than adequate candidates that the major political parties gave us in 2008. At least one of our problems, illegal immigration, might have been dealt with by now. Tancredo is a conservative and his election would be one more step in the right direction for Colorado and for America.
