Mr. Tancredo -- Great job answering the (far too few)questions that were directed toward you. It would have been nice if "the moderator" (ironic, really) had actually asked you about some other topics (or let you comment on them!). I agree completely that the debate was geared toward "the big 3." Must be frustrating to run for President and have the MEDIA decide whether or not you're a good candidate before letting the VOTERS get a chance to make up their own mind.

Keep at 'em!

CNN needed to give you more time , hell McCain on who takes care of our kids and so on the truth is we can't afford to have them watch our kids. Can't get a raise, American kids can't get a construction job because Mexicans already have them it's terrible. We need help not twenty million more people to contend with at the doctors ect. McCain does'nt realize what most of us are going through. Hell yesterday my wife got my daughters prescription has to get insurance co-pay ,Mexican in front of her needs trancelator and no problem free medication with salud program from our state. This is not right , please stand up for us , and ask McCain if bill hurts Americans in any way will he work for us or the Mexican people THANK YOU FOR LISTENING MARTIN PADILLA ALB,N.M. 1830 SHADE TREE

Please provide Mr. Tancredo's opinions concerning the military, govt employees, Veterans ie: benefits, Hospital, funding etc.

Dear Congressman Tancredo
In the Debate you said “Bilingual countries don’t work”. That made me quite a bit angry. This comment is either ignorant or just stupid. It says that my country doesn’t work. Let me tell you something. In fact I come from a country that isn’t bilingual. No, I live in a country that has four official languages. This country does work quite well and I’m proud of it. I’m proud to live in a country that has one of the highest living qualities in the world. I’m proud to live in a country where no one has to search for food in the garbage. I’m proud to live in a country that hasn’t been involved in any war for over 150 years. I’m proud to live in a country which doesn’t need to torture people to keep its freedom and independence. I’m proud to live in a country that really does work. Yes, I’m proud to live in Switzerland.
Honestly it is a poor sign if the language is the only thing that holds your country together.
Anyway, for the next time please be more specific and say the United States of America are not able to work as a bilingual country. Other countries are doing.
By the way, I think Canada works quite well too.

WITH MORE THAN I LITTLE HELP FROM THE DRIVEBY MEDIA, TOM IS BEING BOXED IN AS A "SINGLE ISSUE" CANDIDATE. HE HAS GOT TO BREAK OUT OF THAT BOX. I'M NOBODY, BUT MY 2 CENTS IS THAT HE HAS GOT TO EXPLAIN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT'S HAPPENING IN AMERICA. WHY DID ALL THOSE "AMERICAN" COMPANIES PACK UP AND GO TO CHINA, MEXICO, PAKISTAN OR ANY NUMBER OF 3RD WORLD HELLHOLES? WHY ARE GOODS PRODUCED IN THESE FORMERLY "AMERICAN" FACTORIES NOT HIT WITH TARIFFS BEFORE ENTERING OUR COUNTRY AS ANY SANE NATION WOULD DO TO PROTECT ITS ECONOMY? WHY DOES THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, WITH THE ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORT OF "AMERICAN" BUSINESS, SUPPORT MASSIVE "GUEST" (WHOSE GUEST? NOT MINE!)WORKER PROGRAMS? WHY IS IT THAT "AMERICAN" BUSINESS WOULD RATHER BLEED THE 3RD WORLD DRY OF ITS BEST AND BRIGHTEST (GUEST WORKERS), THAN WORK WITH OUR EDUCATIONAL ESTABLISHMENT TO ENSURE THAT AMERICAN SCHOOLS ARE PRODUCING THE KIND OF TALENT THEY NEED? WHY DON'T TEACHER'S UNIONS EXPRESS PUBLIC OPPOSITION TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, WHEN THEY KNOW IT HAS A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON ANY DISTRICT IN WHICH IT IS AN ISSUE? WHY WAS THE C.E.O. OF EXXON/MOBIL PAID $420 MILLION DOLLARS LAST YEAR WHEN I'M PAYING $3.38 PER GALLON? THE WHOLE MESS CAN BE SUMMED UP WITH A WORD - GREED! I'M NO SOCIALIST, BUT I DO BELIEVE IN CONSCIENTIOUS CAPITALISM. THOSE AT THE TOP OF THE ECONOMIC FOOD CHAIN ARE KEEPING AN EVER-LARGER SLICE OF THE ECONOMIC PIE. IF SOMETHING IS NOT DONE TO STEM THE TIDE, THE RETURN OF THE COMPANY STORE IS NOT FAR OFF. JUST KEEP WATCHING AMERICAN IDOL WHILE WE SLIP THIS COLLAR ON. IT'S A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE AT 1ST, BUT AFTER A WHILE, YOU'LL HARDLY KNOW IT'S THERE.

JOEOUT!

With all due respect to Stefan Lips, the Helvetic Confederation, although a great nation, is unique. And small enough.

Switzerland also has a solid "rule of law", something that is being undermined in America by judiciary abuse and by the a destructive "identity politics", that, yes, is along ethnolinguistic lines. Switzerland does not have that problem yet? (Although with Muslim immigration, soon most of Europe probably will...)

NO large nation (Soviet Union), or even medium-sized nation (Yugoslavia, eh?), has done well with more than one language. Canada is being torn apart by Quebecois troublemakers.

All that said, based upon the three debates so far, I still think Mr. Tancredo should step aside and throw his support to Mr. Hunter. This issue is TOO IMPORTANT to divide the border patriot vote. Tancredo got the ball moving down the field, but I think Hunter has a better chance of scoring a touchdown.

To the lady from Switzerland where they speak four languages; her country does not have people from the entire world living there as we do so English is the glue that holds us together and always has along with our Christian foundation. Also, sometimes countries have to go to war. Such was the case in WWII. I am sure her country has reaped the benefits from our brave WWII soldiers who fought back Hitlers forces valiantly. You are welcome!!

I hope your open to campaign strategies No. 1 congressmen Tancredo needs to file a motion to impeach Bush this will give the Republicans a chance to look like they're cleaning their own house of corruption, also this will be a big push to get media coverage as the author of this motion . all so you will be beating the Democrats to the punch. if I'm not guessing wrong sometime between now and the election the Democrats will use their own impeachment and ride it right into the presidential election .and I believe Rudy will take McCain as vice president running mate. this is why he leting McCain take all the heat
