WOO HOO !!!
Lets go meet Ted Cruz:
A Latin American politician that is soo desperate to get himself elected as President of the United States of America – that he is willing to sell his soul by eagerly sucking up to White-Americans on national TV, and on the floor of the US Congress, by turning on members of his own race, and advocating that millions of fellow Latin-American be deported.
After all, why should the Republican National Party dirty it’s hands and leave itself open to being accused of being the National Party of White Racists – by attacking Latin-Americans using discriminatory Immigration Policies to deport them en mass – when you can get Ted Cruz to do it for you ?
Is that REALLY the kind of person that the Republican National Party wants to be the next President of the United States ?
There are a lot of nasty words for a person who would turn on his own race to get ahead in life, and I can only think of one of them that are polite enough to say in front of ladies and children – COLLABORATOR.
And, if you want to know what people REALLY think of a collaborator like that – go ask any World War 2 (WW2) Veteran who served in France, or the French who survived the Nazi occupation of France during WW2 – or the Jews who survived the concentration camps – what THEY think of collaborators.
Come on Republicans, You’re the party of Abraham Lincoln – who freed the slaves, and who’s votes passed both the Civil Rights Act & the Voting Rights Act in the 1960’s – cant you do better than Ted Cruz ?
THINK about the implications of your actions before you vote for somebody like him… Because someday YOU will have to look your children and/or your grandchildren in the eyes when they ask you who YOU voted for when the man who bears an eerie similarity, both physically & politically, to Joe McCarthy – got elected as President of the United States of America, and steered this country down a dark path of racism against Latin Americans – instead of embracing them and making them welcome allies in this great country of ours.
One of the biggest dirty little secrets of the United States is that our economy depends on the back-breaking labor that newly immigrated Latin Americans are willing to perform for dirt cheap wages – the exact same kind of labor that YOUR great grandparents used to do when they were newly immigrated to the USA… and lets be honest – no native born American of ANY race is willing to work THAT hard even if you offered them triple or quadruple the wages that newly immigrated Latin Americans will work for.
And another HUGE dirty little secret of the United States of America, is the fact that most of those illegal immigrants that far-right conservatives complain about in cleverly written, coded, racist rhetoric – PAY TAXES on those dirt cheap wages – Taxes that the Social Security system cant survive without unless the Republicans are willing to start taxing the Millionaires & Billionaires of this country at the same rates as they tax everyone else – by raising taxes on the rich – instead of allowing the secretaries of a C.E.O. who make less than $100,000.00/year to pay a higher percentage of their annual wages in income taxes – than the C.E.O. they work for pays in income taxes.
Unless you are a millionaire or a billionaire who wants cheap laborers working on your yards and cleaning your toilets – Ted Cruz is NOT the kind of man that we want serving on the school board of the public schools that your children go to – let alone running this country… America deserves better and so do your children and grandchildren.
And, its extremely short sighted for White-Americans to attack Latin Americans as our percentage of the population is decreasing, and theirs is increasing, because Latin Americans are poised to become the largest racial minority in this country and it wont be more than 50yrs before they become the majority.
Because if White Americans continue to treat Latin Americans like dirt instead of welcoming them as our allies – in far less than 100yrs, White-Americans will be the dirt cheap labor that Latin Americans will hire to work THEIR yards, and clean THEIR toilets…
And, it will be YOUR grandchildren and great-grandchildren who will regret the foolish, short sighted, racist actions of THIS generation’s White majority ran Congress who dismantled the protections of Affirmative Action legislation, and the short sighted rulings of white conservative Judges who’s rulings overturned the protections of Affirmative Action that THEIR descendants are going to need when White Americans became one of the minorities… Because the descendants of today’s Latin American cheap laborers will REMEMBER how we treat them now.
So, unless you are willing to start a race-war to decimate their population numbers – White Americans need to treat Latin Americans and African Americans with the RESPECT that they deserve – as our equals – or OUR descendants will pay the price for OUR arrogance.
And, the anti-Latino immigration policies that Ted Cruz promotes will not lead America to a brighter future – it will take us down a dark path that the children of today’s White-Americans will regret, and which the children of future White-Americans will pay for dearly.
