I was wondering if we should be more interested in enforcing current immigration law in regards to people from terror sponsoring regimes even if they are Americas' "allies" like Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia or focus on enforcing immigration laws equally for everyone, since the thrat from Islamic fundamentalists is extreme and the Iraq war is a distraction from fighting these groups that did 911.
thanks, Mel

Contaminated products are entering the American food chain at a rate that is only now becoming clear. For example, contaminated rice gluten was fed to pigs in North and South Carolina, California, New York, Utah and possibly Ohio. The FDA says that "the safety net is in place to make sure that no additional products are going to get into the commerce of the United States".

First, do you support continuing food independence for the United States?

Secondly, how would you direct the FDA to deal with contaminated food products from China?

Congressman Tancredo,
My father recently alerted me to an interesting and somewhat disturbing project that is supposed to be starting in the next few years. Apparently there has been an agreement from our administration, Mexico, and Canada to build a super highway or corridor for mass transit etc. NASCO or North American SuperCorridor Coalition Inc., is who is heading this development. Could you elaborate on what this is, your stand on it, and how it would effect our country? As a resident in Arkansas, the plans show the corridor to run close to where we live, which could be a concern. Thank you for your time. -----Tom

My question to Tom, is how does he propose stopping the subsidies that Congress has been handing out to farmers, automakers, and others, instead of letting free enterprise handle the economic side of our country?

Congressman Tancredo,

I applaud your stance and policies on illegal immigration. During discussions in congress over illegal immigration have any of your pro-illegal immigration amnesty colleagues been able to explain how they expect Mexico (or any other country for that matter)to introduce good economic policies, if they allow the people with the power to induce change (the Mexican people) to flee and not fight?

To borrow a segment from our Declaration of Independence

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."


Isn't the Amnesty crowd robbing the Mexican people of their right to change their government?

*I use Mexico as an example here as they are the worlds largest source of emmigration. But my comments can be applied to any country.

Here's my YouTube question:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koVshb4stik

What is your opinion on the Security and Prosperity Partnership for North America?

This isn't a question for Tom, but for anyone working for him.
Can someone post links to on-line polls where us Tancredo supporters can vote in these on-line polls to help Tancredo get some traction?
And also can someone tell me how to volunteer for Tancredo in my state of Wisconsin?

I'm tired of the Neoconservatives running the republican party, we need someone like Tancredo to lead the republican party to a new conservative movement consisting of:
1) Putting God and Country first in social policy
2) Putting the middle-class first in economic policy
3) Putting America first in foreign policy

With the increase in oil prices, would you back another proposal for drilling in ANWR? Democrats have blocked oil drilling in ANWR for years. Americans are feeling the strain on their wallets and I'm thinking that public pressure along with a passionate leader behind this issue could make drilling in ANWR a possibility. I have read estimates that there are possibly 10 billion barrels worth of oil in Alaska. I believe the time has come to tap that resource.

Congressman Tancredo - Do you believe that Congress is upholding the Tenth Amendment? If not, 1) can you give two or three examples, and 2) how would you fix this when you're elected President?

Where do you stand on 2nd Amendment rights?

Congressman Tancredo - We recently had a raid in New Bedford, MA that nabbed 300+ illegals. Unfortunately, our new governor and both US senators [Kennedy and Kerry] couldn't get to the illegals fast enough to offer support and understanding. Their actions only undermine my concern that politicians are interested only in face time on tv and in appeling to the radical vote.

As a father concerned with the future of my country what could I expect from you as president to ensure my children and grandchildren will be able to compete on a level playing field in the world economy?

Congressman Tancredo,

I just have a comment. I fully support you, have contributed and promote you on my blog. I love your new website, but noticed that though you list your rating from National Right to Life Committee, your new website does not include the more strident pro-life statements that your old one did. I encourage you to let everyone know that you are committed to protecting the right to life for the unborn. I know you support a human life amendment and you oppose embryonic stem-cell research, not just public funding of it. Please clarify. It also would be great if you'd do a video on this topic as well.

I would add, that as a Catholic, I know that the illegal immigration issue might divide the pro-life movement which is largely Catholic. Catholics have been misguided on this issue, not by the Pope, but by American Bishops and some who claim the Pope supports their stance. You've been accused of being anti-Catholic for disagreeing with the bishops.

I was personally disappointed that the media has already apparently decided who to ask questions of and who to relegate to the sidelines. I'm constantly hearing "he's a one-issue candidate" from the man on the street and from such publications as The Weekly Standard. I don't know how you're going to do it, but you need to step it up somewhere, because of all the candidates on stage you were the one who was repeatedly bypassed for questions and cut off when you tried to answer the rare one handed to you.

So, my question: Could you please explain to people why concern with our borders and illegal aliens involves more than just keeping poor people from working and is an overriding issue involving the economy, healthcare, education and national security due to the infiltration by such organizations as Hezbollah into the US?

One question ...

How great is it going to feel to win the Presidency in 2008?

Go Tom!

After seeing this link only you mr. tancredo, mr paul and mr. hunter seem worth anything ....dont ever get out and you guys stick together


Mr. Tancredo would you be willing to fight for the following issues and laws?

Section I: Economic restoration (Creation of an Ownership Society)
Act I: Immediate creation of a Universal Retirement and Investment Plan (URIP).
Thomas Jefferson, declared, "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Issues to be addressed:

-Creation of this fund to improve US citizen’s economic viability and retirement futures.
-Citizen Controlled investment and retirement fund to offer new options other than current public image battered, corporate/foreign managed, 401k, stock/options plans and federal notes based savings that could collapse in the near future.
-New option for US citizen’s current 401k plans to roll over into URIP;[proposed strategy to avoid 401k plan sell off forecasted 2016 mass baby boomer sell offs and possible 2019 social security issues from negatively impacting US citizens funds.]
-URIP to allow an income based tax exemption and corporate deduction for investment within the plan.
-URIP accounts to be created for all US citizens. (Initial 5000 dollar family transfers investment account plan for children allowed under the plans)
-URIP citizen fund to follow the US Citizen over his or her life and world wide location.
-URIP investments are based on tax exempt input for the individual’s retirement and US wide needs.
-URIP is focused on US Domestic Business and Jobs Development.
-URIP will create the necessary zero interest equity capital for Technology development in Energy, Bioscience (Biomedical, Bioengineering and medical devices), Biotechnology and Micro/Nanotechnologies
- URIP will make possible the creation of the world’s lowest cost Energy and Health Care costs for businesses and individuals.
-Creation of World’s leading Clean Energy and Advanced medical resources for all US Citizens.
-Creation of Citizen Controlled private pay superfund to bargain down drugs, focus efforts on nation wide medical costs and resource improvements, citizen funded plan for medical insurance for doctors with managers for tort reform.
-Creation of medical research to be tied to active senior volunteers for studies with issues of loss of teeth, hearing, vision and other aging and health issues.
-US Citizen based low interest (0-6%) home ownership buy in plans for all US citizens.

Core Investment Portfolio areas:

-Physical ownership of rare metals, rare collectibles, and high value rate of exchange possessions.
-General Hedge Funds-Berkeshire Hathaway,Park Place Columbia,Ashmore Portfolio, Global Undecided Sec. Fund, Quantum Fund,currency and rare metals fund.
-Trusts-royalty trusts, Property Trusts, Mortgage REIT(Municipal-tax free returns), tax deferred 1031 exchanges, depreciation deductions, private real estate partnerships(real estate syndications);ex. Warehouse storage buildings, apartment buildings, triple net leases(lease payments, tenant payed :maintenance, insurance,taxes and structural repairs); high equity gaining from this area over long time periods.(US, US Alliance(US domestic and international) based businesses.
-Establishment of fund manager support (experienced real estate brokers, etc..) teams and citizen training and education programs for funds and investments.
-Taxation allowed only on sells within the fund.—Creating large revenue similar to 1990’s capital gains tax benefits.
-No maturation on the fund and no closing ever of the fund allowed, except by death, whereby the fund is transferred to the individual(s) beneficiaries. No leans or other means are allowed against these funds before or after the transfer.
-Funds can be inherited and will not be taxed upon the death of the individual.
-Focused Money market fund created within the fund to allow for payment on life expenses (health care, education, home purchase, business start fund, etc..) All plans are based on choice by the individual to invest or not invest in possible options and to create their own options for investment if it is not represented.
-Focused Health care money fund and the creation of a group to manage grouped buying power, patient’s bill of rights, reduced drug costs, negotiation to lower costs and promote invention and improved health care. This would remove the financial burden from the employer (medical/pensions), for the employee , the retiree, the market, and give the citizen the ability to focus the choice for future possible health care rather than to wait for people to get around to what they need.
-Focused Education fund allows grouped buying power and negotiation to lower costs and promote investment and improved education for all citizens from birth to grave.
-Focused Home buy in plan allows grouped buying power and fixed ultra low interest rates to protect all citizens from external forces and give back all citizens the chance for the American dream.
-Focused business starting fund plan allows group risk and shared IP and technology gains for all citizens that invest in this fund. All such IP is owned by the fund and used to invest in future businesses, improvements and invention discovery.(Key focus in Energy independence, Biomedical/biotechnology, micro and nanotech)
-1st purchasing power of IPO ownership stock of US and US alliance (US domestic and international) based businesses.
-IP ownership of patents from IPO funded companies return revenue at 38% of value.

-Matching funds plan for less than 137,000 a year weighted plan matched fund investment plan

-Employers will be permitted for tax breaks to continue with the employee into the universal pension fund at the discretion of the company policy and current Govt Maximum for tax deferments and incentives. All sales of stock taxes from these funds will be used to directly feed back into matching funds accounts for the fund. Proxy votes will be ran by written ballot for individual held shares in each fund. No fund management voting for shares or funds with shares within.
Projected full health coverage costs per citizen ~ 6000 dollars per year- per person private pay
Projected 10 year real estate market growth in US >500%
Free Energy delivery systems market value >10 Trillion
Biomedical,bioengineering,biotechnology market values >10 Trillion
Micro and Nanotechnology market values ~1 Trillion


Act II: Transition over ten years from income to the following source of our budget and controlling our budget:

Excerpt...USA TODAY reported Monday that taxpayers have a hidden debt of at least $53 trillion in government obligations, mostly from Medicare, Social Security and the federal debt. This debt equals $473,456 per household, dwarfing the $84,454 in personal debt per household owed for mortgages, car loans and other borrowing.....

***Imports are from non Federal Reserve noted circulated income sources and allow for a method to pay down the foreign debt without creating greater circulation and debt.

1) US budget baseline budget would be done by tax on all transfers of goods, materials and services both physical and electronic into and out of our borders.
2) US based add on to imports for inspection tax to fund homeland security and immigration.
3) Tax on all sales within the URIP plan
4) Balanced Budget tax payed only directly to first foreign debt and next other US debt. These funds come from outside circulated US Federal Reserve notes and therefore do not incur new debt since no new bills must be created from these sources of wealth and revenue. A 1% tax reduction for anyone who pays debt from non federal reserve sources.(ie securities, wealth, etc)



5) Decreasing per year income tax and finished within 10 years on US citizens
6) It is proposed that the failures of the fed reserve would note at this time the canceling of the federal reserve act and return to US Treasury’s lead. With this a switch to a hybrid system and a normalized exchange rate system to get our virtual monies back into a frame of back able support.

****Current circulation is 750 billion of Federal Reserve notes. This is 1/10 of the foreign national debt. Since no new circulation limit can be created without creating new debt this system is broken and needs massive reform and auditing.

Create a Hybrid money system of asset certificates and asset coinage bases on silver, gold, platinum and other fine metals, wealth and land for the default currency backing. For the sake of rapid market shifts or lack of assets for the amount of circulateable monies the remaining assets shall be made up the current notes issues by the government backed by the governments bonds and bills. This will give a diversified economy whereby circulated monies can still be modulated via notes but the bulk of the economy will be based on a free market value of land assets and precious metals. This should help to stabilize desires for run away debts since this will allow the Congress to actually make money with the addition of land to its list and levy taxes on this land to the users for the sake of increasing the net worth of the property.

A normalized exchange rate system would weight investment of countries into the environment, the salaries/benefits of the average employee, the GDP of the country, the full wealth of its citizens, the investment in human rights and labor laws. No country can be below half the value of the maximum country in any area else that country may not exchange goods with the US. Each rating then of each category will be summed, ratioed against the value of the other countries aggregate and comparison to the US. This will prevent money values and inflation from ever existing again. Everything will always be normalized, no on will be given absolute trade advantages, the system will pull everyone up.

7) Bonds/Bills are to be used only on infrastructure or in case physical currency of banks is overtopped. Less than 1 trillion in bonds of debt by law can be maintained.

These programs should always be going on and funded by bonds/bills allowing banks to still regulate markets with bonds.

1) roads, highways, bridges, trains, airports, etc.
2) power grid
3) internet backbone
4) water supply
5) waste management
6) defense equipment
7) schools building and support(all public schools up to college)

Estimate 600 billion dollar costs for one time concurrent projects; Wealth tax will not kick in for these threshold covered debts. Only when 1 trillion in debt is created will the emergency wealth tax kick in. This will be exclusively held for these official debts. No budget swapping or mislabeling will be allowed to move debt into these categories. Planned buyout will begin to bring down available debt to 50% or as planned by the congress when 1 trillion thresholds are hit.

Example of budget breakdown

Year 1-10

Avg Yearly Budget = 4.6 trillion dollars

Tax item 1(Core budget): = 1.5 trillion avg
Tax item 2(homeland security and immigration): = 400 billion avg
Tax item 3(Supplemental core budget): = 500 billion avg
Tax item 4(Foreign National Debt): = 1 trillion avg
Tax item 5(income tax): = 1.2 trillion avg


Year 11(prior forecasted time of baby boomers retirement and possible 401k mass sell off to pay for seniors health care and expenses that would destroy economic stability with too large of supply):

Avg Yearly Budget = 2.9 trillion dollars

Tax item 1(Core budget): = 1.5 trillion avg
Tax item 2(homeland security and immigration): = 400 billion avg
Tax item 3(Supplemental core budget): = 1 trillion dollar avg
Tax item 4(Foreign National Debt): = 0
Tax item 5(income tax): = 0

Switched to normalized virtual monies plan-Cancel all Fed Reserve notes and laws.

Normalized exchange creaties a summed aggregrate model for a country to exchange with the US. All world wide monies, assets and investments are normalized together with each countries percentage of each key area (investment in R&D, environmental, labor salaries/benefits, GDP country, full wealth of citizens, investment in human rights and labor.)

Act III: Immediate law changes to require 401k fund managers to transfer stock votes of stocks within fund units to the citizen and away from the fund manager.

Act IV: Immediate Apollo like investment ($500 billion-10 year plan) and action to create abundant “cheap” power for our factories and citizens.

The highest cost to manufacturing is usually 25% for energy consumption (next would be initial recoop of R&D costs (program budgets, salaries and benefits). If this cost were to disappear job creation would be instantaneous in the US. Also jobs would flourish in the area of power system support allowing hybrid work between the Govt and industry to maintain these new portable distributed systems that do not necessarily require the flaws of the current dependancies, preventing nationwide blackouts and terrorist attack on such a vulnerable area! Owning this technology would be for the US as oil is for the Middle East.

Short term goals:

-National Solar farm-every house in America tax write off plan that makes it profitable to
Generate solar power on their home and sell it back to the grid similar to efforts in Europe. This would greatly increase Energy efficiency by reducing line distances for power. Also Creating power to be used for the creation of other transportation fuel sources and to charge vehicles battery sources.

-Ovonics based Hydrogen and safe metal hydride based next generation transportation fuel source-

http://www.ovonics.com/

-Biofuels based fuels bought from US farms and friendly nations such as Brazil instead of unfriendly nations and terrorist sponsoring govt’s.

Long term goals:

-Electromagnetic technologies:

US patent no 6,362,718-100x power gain from input energy

-Helium 3: viewed as the future power source to be mined from the moon for the next
1000 years. This would be an important thing to visit Houston texas and NASA
to support.

Act V: Immediate creation of a Lock boxed national Catastrophic Illness, Injury and death coverage.
-20% of all costs in insurance and medicare come from this area and this area is fraught with
Misdiagnosis, corrupt methods of billing, poorly trained staff and unequal care.
-The focus on healing and discovery is not available for catastrophic cases, leaving patients to
have their rights violated for the convenience of the care party masked under intentional
actions that are labeled as falling under the law. The resultant actions against the citizens has
their bodies slowly destroyed by lethal medication use over a long period of time. Review of
prior history of the past 100 years(prior to use of these medications) shows that citizens
similarly diagnosed do not show anywhere near the same degradation and results as prior to
the use of these lethal medications. This current care system has been describe by many as
one of Americas leading silent epidemics.
-All Catastrophic iIlness and injury shall be covered by the current tax base on all citizens.
- medical/citizen review board shall be put in place for all such cases and especially ones where a Citizen has died under suspicious circumstances as seen by the parties representatives.
-Focus shall be in home based care and in care methodologies that show long term stability
And or where that is not yet available to determine it is shown that these novel methods have
Shown effective gains in reenabling capabilities that the citizen has lost. Institutionalizing an
Individual should never be an option.
-All national health care insurance should be now limited per cost to be 20% less than the
current costs given the introduction of this plan. Secondly by putting in place these boards and
review groups frivolous lawsuits will be reduced. Finally the malpractice insurance should be
capped and the individual doctor If proven guilty of injury or death of the patient shall be liable
to pick up the difference for life by paying into the plan. All of the patients care needs around this injury/illness or from its progression to cause greater harm shall be covered by these doctors’ payments. The patient who suffers this injury or illness shall be given free care costs through this Plan for life.

Act VI: Immediate Emergency No debt/balanced budget flat tax amendment to the constitution.
-Current methods of operation that allow going to the Federal Reserve to create money and
Worsen our “nation killing” debt has to be done away with if our nation is to survive.
-Immediate reform to the constitution to allow the debt to be allowed to be reviewed has to be
put in place.
- The ex post facto law provisions must be replaced with one that allows the exception for bad behavior review and expunging of all such actions by prior individuals.
-Given current homeland security and economic security are a must an immediate reform to
the Constitution for an emergency flat tax law is now proposed. In such cases where the
Nation is in DEBT a tax will be administered against all wealth, property, income and other
sources of world wide resources “accessible” by any citizen through whatever means.
In the event these means require a long time to access the interest on the debt will be applied
to the individual yearly until the individual has completed their debt to society.
-Immediate reform to do away with all income tax and replace it over a ten year period with a
Flat tax against all sources of revenue for each time such goods/sources/services cross our border physically or through other means. This would move the taxation to border protection and away from having to need an IRS but rather to focusing on protecting our nation. The larger the value of the items that moves across the border or its charge for service that greater the amount of income that is collected. Physical items entering the country must pay inspection tax and go through “manifesto” review to ensure safety of the goods to enter the country.

*Manifestos shall outline workers, salaries, msds, etc that came in contact with this material to make it very easy to regulate trade and homeland security in one step.

Act VII: Patent law Reform to allow only citizens to own patents not corporations and to protect employee opportunities to seek and maintain employment based on their skills. Removal from Uniform trade secrets act the term “threatened” so as to prevent this style of frivolous lawsuit. Companies need to compete for the people and the best ideas. No monopoly or regulated prevention of the people’s pursuit of happiness is to be allowed.

-Creation of inevitable disclosure laws creates a situation of frivolous lawsuits and tyranny
against US citizens.
-The current philosophy creates a false doctrine that the company is the one that solely is harmed and it is the one with the idea and mind that created the technology. Therefore the citizen is sued, prevented from future job possibilities and from furthering their ideas with future evolutions that only they solely could evolve in a very rapid time period. This creates a monopoly against the inventor that can not be permitted.
-Patents will be given to citizens and non transferable except to ones descendants. Singular exception for use of this Technology, possible trade secrets and revenue from such will be property and available to the URIP fund if VC Funding has occurred for this technology.
-Licensing of these technologies is to be allowed in an employee and employer relationship.
The employee can not be prevented from licensing this technology to whoever the citizen
chooses. Exception would be given if an idea is jointly created (Proof must be provided that all
parts of the invention are jointly created. No merging of different patent applications into a
super patent will be applicable to limit the submitters original patent application from being
cross licensed) In such cases all parties must jointly agree that each party may license the
technology free of the decisions of the others. Until this agreed no licensing or use of the
technology will be permitted. If this citizens employment relationship is dissolved so will be dissolved the licensing of this technology to the Corporation they are employed by.

Act VIII: Total Reform of Banking system to allow only matched available funded loans. Cancellation of amendment of national debt clause is not to be questioned. Cancellation of all debts previously loaned by floated loans and fiat methods. Complete audit and reform of federal reserve system and turn back over authority to US treasury.

Act IX: Cancelling of NAFTA, WTO,GATT treaties and fast track for the president. Return to bilateral trade with flat tariff rate on most favored nation status.

Section II: Social Reform (Culture of Life and Beneficial Balance)

Act I: Immediate cancellation of all US investment in abortion based procedures and facilities funding in the US and worldwide. Reallocation of these funds to education programs for displaced pregnant women, adoption and to national research into preserving life (earlier sustainability away from the mother for the unborn and a LARGE Apollo program like investments in NES (non embryonic stem cell); amniotic and other pluripotent/multipotent stem cell research and trials. NES examples include placental/umbilical cord, adult stem cells and unintentional miscarriages (from failed natural birth, failed fetal development in the fallopian tubes and failed fertility treatments) if approved and signed off by the parents.

Act II: Constitution Amendment to change clauses that may force states to have to respect other states actions and laws. This is to prevent judicial activism or any action that subverts that natural authority of each state or the congress to create law by Fiat or fair harbor.

Act III: Constitution Ammendment to define Bad behavior to prevent judicial activism
Within this act create a yearly house of representatives review of all federal judges to anti constitutional abuse of powers (ie creation of laws rather than interpreting of laws, failure to enforce the law, etc.)

Act IV: Constitutional Ammendment to Define Marriage
For the sake of our country not to go the way of every failed nation in world history this amendment is necessary to build some stability in our nation. Reuse of [ Reynolds v. U.S. 98 U.S. 145 (1878) allows this law to be created. Liberty and freedom are different there always has to be a review of the circumstance of freedoms to ensure that they are reasonable and possible liberties that are beneficial to society and which do not cause denaturing of the historic and successful values of our country.

Act V: Definition of personhood amendment to be joined to the first neural activity (ie brain activity) of the unborn. This is to bring full circle reuse of all law as limited by sciences knowledge of any known possibility to maintain or revive a citizen and give them a chance at their God given right to Life.

Act VII: Judicial and Congressional term limits to 2 terms and or 12 years

Act VIII: constitutional amendment of 1st amendment to rebalance the American people rights and Christian values.:

Congress nor any other government body or association within the US shall make no law or take any action respecting any philosophy, theory, sect or establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to control their family and their children's education or health, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

America's Christian Heritage—the people need to be reminded
• George Washington: His personal prayer book, written in his own handwriting, declares continual fidelity to the Lord Jesus Christ: "O most Glorious God, in Jesus Christ my merciful and loving Father, I acknowledge and confess my guilt, in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day."
• John Marshall: Chief Justice of the Supreme Court described Washington: "Without making ostentatious professions of religion, he was a sincere believer in the Christian faith, and a truly devout man."
• The Continental Congress, on September 11, 1777, recommended and approved that the Committee of Commerce "import 20,000 Bibles from Holland, Scotland, or elsewhere," because of the great need of the American people and the great shortage caused by the interruption of trade with England by the Revolutionary War.
• John Adams: On March 6, 1789, President Adams called for a national day of fasting and prayer so that the nation might "call to mind our numerous offenses against the most high God, confess them before Him with the sincerest penitence, implore his pardoning mercy, through the Great Mediator and Redeemer, for our past transgression, and that through the grace of His Holy Spirit, we may be disposed and enabled to yield a more suitable obedience. . ."
• John Quincy Adams: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." (July 4, 1821)
• John Jay: First Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court: "Unto Him who is the author and giver of all good, I render sincere and humble thanks for His manifold and unmerited blessings, and especially for our redemption and salvation by His beloved Son."
• Patrick Henry: In a letter to his sister Anne: "My heart is full. Perhaps I may never see you in this world. O may we meet in heaven, to which the merits of Jesus will carry those who love and serve Him."
• George Mason: "Father" of the Bill of Rights; "My soul I resign into the hands of my Almighty Creator, whose tender mercies are all over His works, who hateth nothing that He hath made, and to the justice and wisdom of whose dispensations I willingly and cheerfully submit, humbly hoping from His unbounded mercy and benevolence, through the merits of my blessed Savior, a remission of my sins".
• James Madison: "Chief Architect" of the U. S. Constitution, wrote in the margin of his Bible, "Christ's Divinity appears by St. John chapter XX, 2; 'And Thomas answered and said unto Him, my Lord and my God!' Resurrection testified to and witnessed by the Apostles, Acts IV, 33."
• The First Act of Congress following their agreement of the precise wording of the First Amendment (Congress shall make no law concerning the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...) was to ask President Washington to declare a national day of fasting and prayer!
• Constitution of the State of Delaware: Art. XXII Every person who shall be chosen a member of either house, or appointed to any office or place of trust... shall...make and subscribe the following declaration, to wit: "I, do profess faith in God the Father and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, one God, blessed for evermore and I do acknowledge the holy scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by divine inspiration."
• United States Supreme Court: Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 1892, 143 US 457, "These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation." (p.471) [This U. S. Supreme Court opinion includes a lengthy and detailed record of the historic evidences of America's Christian heritage.]

Act IX: move AWAY FROM METAPHOR AND GO TO ACTION

Creation of an Immediate constitutional amendment barring rider bills. A bill must have a singular purpose and no riders. Creation of a constitutional amendment barring acts of fillbusters to be considered acts of sedition and be punished as such.

ACT X: Acknowledgement of God
[Vidal v. Girard's Executors, 43 U.S. 126 (1844)]

Passing of house of worship and acknowledgement of God acts must be completed by Congress.

ACT XI

Removal of US federal government from education administration and control keep its actions only in support and enablement of all citizens wants and desires under general welfare. Give this control back to the county and local control. Promote competition through voucher systems, charter schools, and home schools to increase performance in the public school system.


Section III: Security Reform (Homeland Security and Immigration)

Act I: Immediate census, enlistment or deportation of all illegal aliens in the US. The illegals shall be fingerprinted and biometrically tracked. All employers shall be heavily fined for hiring of illegals. These Illegals can not afford fines and the benefit is not there to use fines to bring them in or allow them to stay without doing the thorough background checks that have been avoided.

The individuals or their children (if borne in the US at the time of birth from two non-US borne parents), currently now 18 or older, that have illegally entered our country in the past and live now within the US shall be required to enlist in the military branch of their choice and serve at least 5 years in the service of the US. They and their immediate families will be kept on military bases and provided medical care, education, and services during this time anywhere around the globe.

This strategy will be used to filter out dangerous individuals, to ensure Americanization (English language, respect of our laws, etc) rather than invasion and abuse of our immigration system, and to move away from American soil the dangers their in and to ease the rupturing of all the different systems that have been affected by the illegal immigration invasion. This reform with align to a system where people can be moved through the best equipped establishments to deal with dangerous parties the military. This will allow the highest and strongest possibility for individuals to be screened out from entering our country without review.

All future legal immigrants shall also be required to serve through this full 5 years of military service if they are 18 or older and their children shall do the same on their 18th birthday.

This combined effort shall make it possible to removed guardsmen from the international war on terror and bring them home for securing our borders. It will also ensure a long term plan for a much larger and stronger military capable of fighting the global war on terror.


Act II: Immediate placement of our troops and guardsman on our borders to protect against infiltration and to enforce taxing of goods and services.

Act III: Support reforming of Patriot Act to protect our national independence without challenging our personal freedoms by executive office decisions through the War Powers Act (WPA) or the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA)


Section IV: Government Reform

On Aug. 18, 1821, Jefferson wrote to Charles Hammond and expressed that of the three branches of government, the one he feared the most was the federal judiciary: “The federal judiciary is …working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction until all shall be usurped from the states, and the government of all be consolidated into one (i.e., federalization).”

Act I: Immediate Constitutional amendment to make filibusters an act of constitutional bad behavior and require immediate suspension of such members from the congress until an impeachment hearing can be completed. A single member of a body can vote for this action. But in the event that it is found that malicious or strategic action was taken by the individual to misuse this most sacred action that such individual shall also face the process and proceedings review of bad behavior. In any such event a state may nominate a replacement representative to fill the individual’s position until the do process for this act can be completed and resolved.

Act II: Do away with FDA and FTC. Create FCA(Federal Cure Association). The laws today and guidelines have failed. To be given funds for a cure the item has to be called a drug. Such close mindedness in the law is not the reality of the needed cures of the future. Drugs get onto the market without screening for long term effects. Other solutions that are homeopathic, from other countries or maybe from other technologies other than drugs such as energetics(magnetic field research), electrical retraining of muscles with the brain for stroke patients isn’t given a standard venue for patients to gain access to Instead there is this advertising on tv going on to get people to find doctors that will give them the drugs they supposeablely need but which do not create cures and which often cause side effects worse then there problem. Its time as part of the CDC, the proposed FCA and the proposed national Catastrophic Illness, Injury and death coverage to invest heavily in searching for all cures and all future technologies to study these areas and others.

ACT III: Do away with IRS and department of education

ACT IV: Reform Laws around constitutional areas of good behavior and focus on actions of the judiciary.

ACT V: National Initiative and Referendum constitutional amendment. This would give the US citizens the same power once a year as a constitutional amendment and strengthen the term limited president to better get his or her initiatives into law during do nothing congress’s


Section V: Corporate Reform


Expense all contributions, stocks, cars, stock options, etc. of executive leadership of companies.

Section VI: Legal Reform

Act I: Creation of a National Review system funded at the county level to review and use federal funding to prosecute all legal cases.

Act II : Reform of the Uniform Trade Act to allow only actual not threatened misappropriation may be enjoined. Enhance the law to state at no time shall this law be used to create an after-the-fact covenant not to compete restricting employee mobility.

Act III: Create Anonymous Patent Review with no time limit on patents. (3 reviews on no more on any patent)

Act IV: Establish protections of citizens against anti competitive trade secret and patent laws from prevent duties, mobility and being any cause for discrimination of an employee or from preventing in hiring.

Section VII: Trade Reform

Act I Cancelling of Fast Track Bill, NAFTA, GATT(WTO) and any bills whereby Congress’s power was handed to another branch. (The Supreme Court in the 1800’s ruled that the Congress could not constitutionally give up it’s authorities to another branch of congress.)
Act II reestablish bilateral trade agreements with individual nations.

The 12th amendment that goes by popular vote wherein with cases where a simple majority is not won by any candidate than a voter run off system would be used. With no electoral focus this would make it very hard to get to ever have citizens vote corrupted or manipulated by media or any other means.

"And Congress shall grant no extra compensation to any public contractor, officer, agent, or servant, after such contract shall have been made or such service rendered."


eliminate omnibus spending bills by requiring all legislation to "relate to but one subject," which had to be "expressed in the title." There would be no "Christmas-tree" appropriations bills or hidden expenditures.

New Version of Article I Section 5:
Each House shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members, and a majority of each shall constitute a quorum to do business; but a smaller number may adjourn from day to day, for the sole purpose to compel the attendance of absent members, in such manner, and under such penalties as each House may provide.

Article I Section 9
…No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed….
New section
Article I Section 9: “No Bill or Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed”

As an example of a draft amendment for this case the following amendment is submitted:

Amendment (Article I Section 9) : No Bill or Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed. Exception to this rule will be applied when someone has been deemed, past or present, to have fallen out of good behavior during or after the occupancy of a constitutional office. It will be the responsibility of the Congress to cleanse the member(s)’ bad behavior from our republic and protect we the people from corruption or tyranny. In the event of the office holders death if his or her actions have violated the constitution then a formal review and cleansing of the bad behavior is the responsibility of the congress to perform.


As wrote:

Article I section 10
No state shall, without the consent of the Congress, lay any imposts or duties on imports or exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection laws: and the net produce of all duties and imposts, laid by any state on imports or exports, shall be for the use of the treasury of the United States; and all such laws shall be subject to the revision and control of the Congress.
I wouldn’t change this but I would emphasize this power to the states to use for homeland security costs by getting together with all states to execute a nation wide import tax on all foreign goods, people, etc. for inspection! The consumer will end up paying the price but there is little choice in the matter.
Article I Section 9: “No Bill or Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed”

As an example of a draft amendment for this case the following amendment is submitted:

Amendment (Article I Section 9): Exception to this rule will be applied when someone has been deemed ,past or present, to have fallen out of good behavior during or after the occupancy of a constitutional office. It will be the responsibility of the Congress to cleanse the member(s)’ bad behavior from our republic and protect we the people from corruption or tyranny. In the event of the office holders death if his or her actions have violated the constitution and or been adjudicated as not being in good behavior then a formal review and cleansing of his actions will be the responsibility of the congress to perform.


I would support Judge Roy Moore’s two bills in congress, doing away with tax liability pressure against the church for involvement in politics, doing away with abortion in two steps. The first step would be to make it so when the brain first functions at 6 weeks no abortion will be allowed. Next since this is not easily measureable this would lean then to peer pressure a no abortion law period and life begins at birth next step. I would like to see matched funds to create research in medical era to save earlier and earlier child births to prevent any abortions from happening.

I would like to see focus on exchange rate and taxing for imports for inspection costs.

The stability of US markets are no longer balanced ONLY by trade and commerce laws. Truly now Article I section 10 bring to light something similar to that which the first colonies must have feared. The advent of terrorism has crippled state economies, put utter fear into the markets and shown the need to protect the sovereignty of the cash strapped states to charge fees as they see necessary to protect their very way of life. These inspection laws must be authorized and put forth to maintain US interests. Here now the pendulum must swing back as we now see with the creation of a department of homeland security at the federal level. But now there must be a means by which states can pay for the services necessary to maintain their stability and sovereignty.

All parties that share in states and federal economic stability, its sovereignty and ability to maintain a stable environment shall pay a fitted fee according to the maintaining of these seven areas.

The following inspection charge(s) are proposed to cover the following essential areas.

1. Stable import and export of all good and services: This fee shall be place on all goods and services. This included all good and materials shipped into and out of the state as well as virtual internet services that will have to be monitored and protected against for economic manipulation and terrorism.
2. Transportation fee into or out of Kentucky: This charge will have to focus on any areas of terrorist or other elements of crime (illegal aliens, etc) whereby these people can be brought into Kentucky and or leave from Kentucky.
3. Power Usage fee: This charge shall be used to inspect and monitor means of power that comes and leaves the state to avoid any function that may affect intrastate or international economic
4. People Inspection fee- This charge shall be used to inspect individuals for criminal and or terrorist activities from leaving or entering Kentucky by undetected means.
5. Water inspection fee-This charge shall be used to inspect water ways and sources to prevent criminal or terrorist activities.
6. Next generation tools and services fee-In order to achieve items 1-5 successfully there must be the necessary funds to invest in next generation detection tools. This necessitates budgets for technologies (micro,nano,bio) research efforts within Kentucky to keep one step ahead of terrorist or other disasters that may cripple our state and US economies.
7. Response teams-FBI,police,fireman, customs, etc…all necessary in state experts and agents to enforce and carry out inspections.
Article I
Section 10.
No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts (except those which hide revenue from taxation by the government, create possibility of harm for the citizens), or grant any Title of Nobility.

"The field split on another issue, with Brownback, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo raising their hands when moderator Chris Matthews asked who did not believe in evolution."

I have contributed to the Tancredo for President campaign twice for his strong stance on the illegal immigration issue. But I am now a bit disturbed that Tom indicated he does not believe in evolution and did so after surveying the rest of the candidates at the Reagan Derby lineup.

Can we clarify this point? If Tom does not believe in evolution, in what, exactly, does he believe?

I'd also be interested in the Benjamin Franklin quote he wasn't permitted to make.

I applaud your stance on Islamofacists. Those bastard extremists need to learn a lesson. If they - God forbid - committed another attack on our country Mecca and Medina should be destroyed completely by nuclear weapons. May God bless you senator: you are indeed a hero.
