Palin endorses Tancredo in Colo. gov race

DENVER (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has offered a last-minute endorsement to former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo in the Colorado governor’s race.

Palin urged voters Monday to support Tancredo — who is running on the American Constitution Party ticket — saying he will fight for lower taxes and smaller government, and start growing the economy.

Colorado GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes, a tea party favorite, says Palin is increasingly becoming part of the establishment. He says Palin waited until the day before the election to improve her odds of picking a winner.

Tancredo and Maes are running against Democrat John Hickenlooper, Denver’s mayor, in Tuesday’s election.

    We need Tom Tancredo to help us and Arizona in our fight against the; Clintonista-Obamanation, leftist-liberal-Democrat, anti-American; illegal-alien-invasion-crime-fraud-amnesty-menace, illegal-crime-promoting-sanctuary-cities, US-bankruptcy-destruction !!!

    Hickenlooper-D is polling at 47%, Tancredo-American-Constitution-Party at 43%, and Maes-R has 5%.

    Alot of the Conservative people of Colorado like most Americans have in the past been highly misled, misguided, and blocked-stopped from seeing Tom Tancredos real-full value as the pro-national-defense-fiscal-social-Conservative US leader, politician, and citizen that he is.

    So as has happened so many times before, Tancredo the long-time consistent Conservative Republican who has a 97.2% Conservative 10 year voting record in the US Congress, from 1998-2007, was as usual; misepresented, misquoted, taken out of contest, and mistreated in the Colorado Gov R-primary too.

    Tancredo has 10 years as US Congressman from Colorados 6th district. He grew up and has lived in Colorado since 1945. Dan Maes moved to Colorado sometime after 1985, and has never ran for or held a public office before.

    Ok,

    Tancredo has managed to poll at 43%, lets look at it from this angle:

    We can get this done. So if you’re a loyal Maes supporter you’ve shown-proven your loyalty. But now we must decide, is it going to be;

    anti-illegal-alien-invasion-crime-fraud-menace-amnesty-sanctuary-city-US-bankruptcy-destruction fighter Tom Tancredo,

    or leftist-liberal, pro-illegal-alien-invasion-crime-fraud-menace-amnesty-sanctuary-city, US-bankruptcy-destruction, supporter-enabler, Hickenlooper

    ???

    Put aside the old division from the post-primary conflicts and lets get ready to rumble !!! against the leftist-liberal-Clintonista-Obamanation-serving-supporting-ally, Hickenlooper !!!

    We can beat the Clintonista-Obama-serving-ally, pro-illegal-alien-invasion-crime-fraud-menace-sanctuary-city-supporting-enabling Hickenlooper !!!

    It’ll be well worth it to give Tancredo a try at getting some Conservative progress and accomplishments done, instead of the leftist-liberal-illegal-alien-invasion-crime-fraud-menace, US-bankruptcy-destruction, that we’ll surely get with leftist-liberal-Democrat Hickenlooper !!!

    At this point it’s fair to say, even to all of the staunch Maes supporter. Somehow Tancredo has managed to get enough support to be pulling around 43% in the polls, Hickenlooper only has 47% and his polling #’s have not changed much for months, so he’s not likely going to get more than 45-50%.

    No matter how annoyed Maes supporters are with Tancredo, compared to Hickenlooper he is still 100 times better.

    If most-all of the Maes supporters realize, “hey wait we actually can beat Hickenlooper, give Tancredo a chance for 4 years. Give Arizona some of the neighboring State support that they really need and deserve, etc. Lets do it, we can beat Obamas loyal-supporting-ally left-wing-liberal, illegal-alien-sanctuary-city promoting-supporting-enabling-advocate Hickenlooper, if we all vote for Tom Tancredo !!!

    Maes has a long political carreer ahead of him. What’s the point of losing to Hickenlooper at this point, to just prove that we’re upset with Tancredo jumping into the race months ago ???

    It’s not like he jumped in at the end of the campaign as a write in candidate.

    Look we can win this, will we seize the opportunity or get stuck with illegal-alien-sanctuary city-promoter-supporter-advocate-enabler Hickenlooper ???

    If Maes supporters vote for Tancredo, he will get over 50% and we all win !!!

    Even if you’re a staunch Maes supporter, here are some of the good points about Tancredo and why if you vote for him you will be much more of a winner if you don’t vote for him, which would mean that Hickenlooper wins:

    Vote for Tom Tancredo for Governor !!!

    Because:

    Hickenlooper would be a leftist-liberal, Clintonista-Obamanation-serving-ally, pro-illegal-alien-sanctuary-city-disaster-type-Governor.

    Maes poll #’s are low and dropping, Tancredo can win against Hickenlooper if most-all Conservatives decide to back him now-Tuesday.

    Lets all do what we can to join with and support Arizona. Tom Tancredo supports Arizona and the SB-1070 law.

    Tancredo on Immigration

    Tom Tancredo is best known for his opposition to illegal immigration. Tancredo founded the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus in May 1999. He served as its Chairman until January 2007, when he turned the chairmanship over to Brian Bilbray.

    Tancredo has called for halting illegal immigration, and a three-year moratorium on all legal immigration to allow those immigrants already in the country to be assimilated.

    Tancredo criticized the Denver Public Library system for purchasing reading materials written in Spanish and for offering space for classes to be held for these library users, on the grounds that putting Spanish-speakers in a ‘linguistic ghetto’ would delay their integration into American society.

    Tancredo sponsored legislation to eliminate H-1B visas for temporary workers in 2005 because the vast majority overstay their Visas

    On July 30, 2007, Tancredo “criticized Congressional Democrats for eliminating a requirement that anyone applying for Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) services provide proof of U.S. citizenship”. According to Tancredo, “the new Democrat plan would raise taxes and make it easier for illegal aliens to obtain taxpayer-funded medical benefits”

    Tancredo was the sponsor of a successful, bi-partisan amendment to a Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill that would withhold federal emergency services funds from ‘sanctuary cities’.

    Tancredo supports Federal action in what he considers its proper sphere. He has suggested state legislators and ‘sanctuary city’ mayors should be imprisoned for passing laws contrary to federal immigration law.

    Tancredo has made it a point in all of his public speeches to differentiate between those who enter the United States legally and those who come illegally. He frequently attends naturalization ceremonies to support new citizens for “doing it the right way”.

    In 2006, Tancredo published In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security through Joseph Farah’s WND Books in Nashville, Tennessee. The volume focuses on American cultural identity and his proposals to remedy what he conteds to be major flaws in the immigration system.

    Tancredo’s has staunchly supported tightening immigration requirements from Islamic countries. On September 18, 2008, Tancredo introduced H. R. 6975, the Jihad Prevention Act, which would require aliens to attest that they will not advocate installing a Sharia law system in the United States as a condition for admission, and for other purposes. Aliens failing to make such an attestation would be ineligible for admission. Further, the visa of any alien advocating the installation of a Sharia law system in the United States would be subject to revocation.

    The National Taxpayers Union awarded Tancredo a grade of A for each year he has served in Congress. Tancredo was awarded a grade of A for votes he cast in 1999 to 2006 inclusively. Additionally, Tancredo received the National Taxpayers Union’s “Taxpayers’ Friend Award” in 1999 to 2006 inclusively as well. The award is given by the NTU to those members of Congress that are among “the strongest supporters of responsible tax and spending policies”. He is also a strong supporter of the FairTax.

    Tancredo on Obama

    In a speech given at a campaign event for Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck on July 8, 2010, Tancredo said of President Barack Obama, “…the greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life; everything we believe in. The greatest threat to the country that our founding fathers put together is the man that’s sitting in the White House today.”

    On July 22, 2010, in an editorial in the Washington Times, Tancredo said that Congress should bring impeachment charges against President Obama.

    Lets all do what we can to join with and support Arizona. Tom Tancredo supports Arizona and the SB-1070 law.

    Vote against-defeat the; leftist-liberal, Clintonista-Obamanation-serving-supporting-ally, illegal-alien-sanctuary-city-promoting-supporting-enabling-advocate, Hickenlooper.

    Vote for Tom Tancredo for Colorado Governor !!!
