Someone should be swiping Fred Thompson. For 6 months or more we saw his face on television nearly every day while he was 'testing the waters', but he never said one definite word about any issue. Then 55 days after he jumped in the pool he released a statement about HIS plan for illegal immigration. I nearly choked on my popcorn. He did not just take a page from Tom Tancredo, he took the whole danged playbook.

The illegal immigration issue remains a very HOT subject. Tom Tancredo and Jim Sensenbrenner are sincere. Fred Thompson is a old teddy bear trying to leach onto something that will propel him into the spotlight. The problem is, he is a Johnnie Come Lately with no credibility on this issue.

Absolutely no credibility. He sat on the Senate Judicary Committee the first 4 years Tom was in the House trying to get legislation passed to protect us from the then trickle of illegal immigration compared to todays tsunami.

I believe Fred Thompson is the CFR pick to put the icing on the cake Dubya has baked and finish giving away our free and independent nation to a North American Union.

They are counting on his acting skills and the couch potatoes who think they are gonna get that law and order character for a president if they vote for him.

55 days after he jumped in the pool, FTD announced his plan for dealing with the illegal immigration problem and he did not just take a page from Tom, he took the whole danged play book.

No americans want enough money to live while doing the job. You will work for less money. And send money to mexico. Bad for econony. Money has to circulate in local economy.
