Just another stupid fuck neo-con sell-out as expected. So stop wetting your pants. Ron Paul is a lone fighter in this race.

Guys this is GOOD news. Maybe Romney and Huck will split the vote and RP can take the lead. Don't forget Tancredo is a neocon, to say that his endorsement will send other neocons our way is far fetched.

Tancredo supporters were smart and dedicated enough to support a candidate that was on the fringe. They supported him not because of his name (because he didn't have one), but for his policies. They're not going to jump to Romney just because Tancredo endorses him. Romney doesn't have a great record on the whole illegal alien issue.

Naraku
12-20-2007, 02:21 PM
Hopefully his supporters will wail on him for selling out and he'll come to his senses and endorse Paul.

This was just posted in another thread. We ALL need to be helping out in this.


I just wrote a letter to all the people who were on Tancredo's Meetup groups (there were only a dozen or so)

If you are concerned about the immigration issue and about the size and scope of the federal government, I encourage you to join a Ron Paul meetup. We are active and support Tancredo's position on this important issue. Since he is dropping out of the race, it is important that you choose a strong voice for change in Washington to support.

You can read Ron Pauls views on immigration and other issues by going to the following site and also by joining the Ron Paul meetup group in your area.

http://ronpaullibrary.org/topic.php?id=5

Thanks for your time.

MarcMadness
12-20-2007, 02:25 PM
But I guess not in today's political world. Tancredo did the politically expedient thing instead of the right thing. He HAS to know Paul would be tougher on immigration, which tells me this was done for nothing more than political expediency. How sad. I really always thought that Tancredo, for all his faults, was an honest and genuine guy in it for the right reasons. Guess I was wrong.

But I look at it this way. Sure some of Tancredos prowar supporters will go to Romney (we never would have won them anyway), but I think people that supported him for this long are generally free-thinkers, and I do believe a good portion of them will see through Romney's B.S. and join the 'good guys'. At least that 's the way I see it.

Still, a major disappointment. This won't be what costs us the nomination though, if Tancredo's 1% is our undoing we were done anyway . (Editor's Note: I do not by any way, shape or form think we are done, not by a longshot).

We want vote-splitting, because our voters are the least likely to split. We need those neo-cons to share 80% among all of them allowing us to win with 20%.

Well, I think the message he's really sending with this endorsement is that Huckabee must be stopped. He's probably concerned that Huckabee will be a big-government guy and give benefits to illegal aliens, so he's lending his support to the only candidate that he thinks can stop Huckabee in Iowa.

They are getting instructions from HQ. The GOP dont want Huckabee and Huckabee's fake MSM rise was only to filter out Ron's Rise. Huckabee will be gone after the early february primaries.

Heres the list:

#1. Fuck Tancredo. He is a neo-con, elitist sell-out.
#2. I am sure there was a cabinet position and/or money talked about during their little chit-chat.
#3. Ron Paul will still win this regardless of the Tancredo endorsement. All this does is divide the power more evenly amongst the top elite, specifically away from Huckachunk.
#4. Doomsayers, wait until after Iowa and New Hampshire to open your mouths again because Ron Paul is going to win this motherfucker.

Tancredo is a loser.



He runs the entire time just for illegal immigration and picks a guy who says this:

Romney- "I don't believe in rounding up 11 million people and forcing them at gunpoint from our country." He would like to see illegal immigrants register with the government, pay taxes, and apply for citizenship.


This is against what Tancredo wants yet he still endorses Romney, what a moron. Ron Paul is just as tough on illegal immigration as Tancredo is.

I lost all respect for Tom Tancredo today, when he announced his endorsement for Mitt Romney. I can hardly believe it. :( And of course, he just had to take that last jab at Dr. Paul on that article posted on Lew's blog that Ron had nothing to do with. Of course, the link to it is predominantly placed on Tancredo's website for all his supporters to see.

They're not going to jump to Romney just because Tancredo endorses him. Romney doesn't have a great record on the whole illegal alien issue.

I posted this in another thread - if you want Tancredo votes, we need to work on these questions/past votes. NO ONE HAS OFFERED TO HELP ME WITH THIS RESEARCH PROJECT THAT IS TIME CRITICAL!

If we can divide up thse bills and digg into them, find out why paul voted against the first set, which were immigration enforcement bills, and for the second set which did other things, like increase visas we can get more support from anti-immigration folks.

Please dont reply if your going to put the canned "he doesnt vote for bills with pork or unconstitutional legislation" We need to prove in each case that the legislation was unconsitutional and document it or find out why he voted the way he did and document it.

These questions are from strong anti-illegal immigratin people who dont undertand Paul's votes on these bills and WONT SUPPORT HIM UNTIL SOMEONE POVIDES A SPECIFIC EXPLANATION FOR EACH ONE.

The For Votes (I'll perhaps post the other set later): I cant research these all myself. Show me you guys can do good work.

Tancredo sold his soul for a potential position in Mitt Romney's cabinet. I always thought that Tancredo was better than that. I thought he was more like Ron Paul than the frontrunning neo-cons, but I guess not. Romney has flip flopped on nearly every issue and suddenly Tancredo thinks that he says what he means about securing the borders? What a joke. Hopefully his supporters have more integrity than their candidate does.
