The Man of Honor ...

Has stood alone...a beacon in the night.

       He stands, rising above the rest ...

   A patriotic soldier, guarding us with his might.


God blesses America… with the creation ...

       Of this soldier with determination ...

   protecting our nation ...


Tom Tancredo, the bearer of Duty and Proclamation.

       Posted bravely at his station ...

   A bright American light.

I listen to Rep. Tancredo speak; I listen in awe of his kindness, his compassion, his dedication, and his determination. I know he is all that he appears to be when you see him, you meet him, you hear him, or you read all about him. I know he is a true patriot and that with bravery he opposes his own Party. Crossing the political lines, defending our future, our country, and our very existence as proud and inherently kindhearted American residents.

Without heroes, where would we be today? Without Martin Luther King, without George Washington, without Abraham Lincoln, et al, would America be what she is at present? Highly unlikely. What all of America’s history of brave patriots share is the willingness to NOT take the easy road, following the comfy, correct, and acceptable, PC-isms. Political correctness at her finest, and governed by money and power. What these United States patriots and founders of our country have in common is: vision, foresight, and destiny. They share the observance of our laws that govern America, and they share respectfulness of Man, God and Country.

Actions speak louder than words ladies and gentlemen. Rep Tancredo’s actions had his opponents convinced that getting him voted out of Colorado office was a “Shoe-in win”. The residents of Arizona’s actions with Prop. 200 had their opponents convinced that getting Prop. 200 defeated was also a Shoe-in. Nothing less than a fast “V” for Victory entertainment session.

Neither one has proven true. They were no shoe in's, they were “shoo -- outs“.

This past November 2004 election is ‘proof positive’ that the American public is demanding respect for God and Country, insistence of observation for Laws and Oath of Office, and that nothing less will be tolerated, much less go unnoticed by the public. No longer will the ‘will’ of the government be imposed upon the People, the Will of the People is demanding the Oath of Office be upheld by our government. That is their job, that is the oath they swear to upon entering office, hand on a Bible, and they owe their employers respect and responsibility, not insubordination. We living in America are their employers. They work for us.

Setting aside Rep. Tancredo, as the exception rather than the rule, are we going to ‘take to task’ the rest of our American government officials? Demand they observe their contract with us, the spoken oath of Serve and Protect the People of the great United States?

Ask not what we can do for our government, but what they are supposed to do for us. Heavy-handed questions and issues they would prefer not to address, nor answer. Is it time for a job re-evaluation on their job performance? I believe it is.

Note that of 435 Congressional officials, 71 are members of Tom Tancredo’s Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus (, which seeks to "Improve interior enforcement and border control and enforce the new Department of Homeland Defense division ...”

What team are the other 364 Congressional members on? The Bush-Fox team? The US-UN team? We, the People, must write, call, and ask, these employees of ours. "Whose team do YOU represent?"

Contact YOUR Representatives and Senators toll-free (877) 762-8762. Call President Bush at the White House Hotline (202) 456-1111 or fax him at (202) 456-2461 NOW!

Our soldier is not the Unknown Soldier, buried in bureaucracy. Our soldier is a Shining Knight, fearless, brave, and forging ahead. In my state, we thank God for giving us this heroic man, Congressman Tom Tancredo. We are blessed here. Isn’t it time you all are blessed as well?
