I’m not big into “class warfare” as some call it, however, I do find it laughable that Romney thinks “Occupying Wall Street” is dangerous. Since when did exercising freedom of expression and mere protests become dangerous? Seems to me he is the dangerous one when he wants to suppress mere freedom of speech and when it is expressed. Romney should be concerned though…..after all….he is Mr. Bain Capital and he does know how to slash jobs to increase profit margins for investors.

The Christian Post understands the political risks 2012 GOP Candidates are taking with Hispanic voteThursday, October 6th, 2011
The Christian Post understands the political risks the GOP Presidential Candidates are considering when they are wanting to boycott UNIVISION over Senator Marco Rubio. Marco Rubio has fractured relationships between Cubans (consists of 3% of total Hispanic population) and the largest Hispanic ethnic group (those of Mexican descent accounting for almost 70% of Hispanic population).
From the Christian Post:
The candidates who are boycotting Univision are “committing Hispanic political suicide,” Blase said. “Univision is the number-one Spanish network in the nation,” and “the lifeline of Hispanic media.”
Blase said Somos Republicans was already upset with Rubio for saying that he does not support “amnesty” for illegal immigrants, because, as a Cuban-American, his family has already benefited from an amnesty-like government program.
Republican candidates who support the boycott, “are trying to appease the Cuban-American population” at the expense of the rest of the Latino community, Blase said.
“Do they want to go after the 3 percent (Cuban-American population, prominent in Florida) or do they want to go after the 70 to 75 percent (Mexican-American population, prominent in the Southwest)? That is what I see taking place with their moronic move, fighting Univision,” Blase said.

State Senator Russell Pearce was recalled by Citizens for Better Arizona, which has forced a special elections to be held on November 8th, 2011. Libertarian candidate, Michael Kielsky wants to spoil the race by inserting himself into the special elections as an additional candidate. Everyone knows that Jerry Lewis is the strongest Republican candidate to beat Pearce, but now Michael wants to make a name for himself knowing full well that a Libertarian cannot beat Pearce.
Russell Pearce is viewed by millions of Latinos as an oppressor. Pearce has proudly welcomed “Operation Wetback” (his words not mine), and now we see a Libertarian candidate (Michael Kielsky) who will forever tarnish the Libertarian party because those living at “immigration ground zero” will never forget his anti-Latino move — especially those who are fighting for those who are afraid to fight for themselves. That’s what kind people do…they help the poor and try to do their best to help fellow man.
Libertarian Michael Kielsky is really a friend to the Latino/immigrant oppressor — Mr. Russell Pearce.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce creating a blacklist that barred Latinos from entering the Arizona Capitol for exercising their freedom of speech, therefore, we will tie the oppressive millstone around Kielsky, too, since he clearly knows he might spoil the special elections race.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce welcoming “operation wetback” into Arizona.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce’s ties to known neo-Nazi’s.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce promoting large government ideas such as e-verify.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce promoting large government when the state benefits in receiving millions of tax dollars to house, detain and deport the non-criminal element of the undocumented for committing a civil offense.
- Kielsky does not care about Pearce introducing laws that violate the Constitution of the United States such as SB 1070 where the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Arizona federal judge’s ruling.
- Kielsky does not care about about Pearce introducing unconstitutional laws that violate American born baby rights via the 14th amendment.
See a pattern?
Kielsky will forever tarnish the Libertarian Party with his selfish and uncaring demeanor because HE DOES NOT CARE IF HIS CANDIDACY ADVERSELY AFFECTS THE SPECIAL ELECTIONS IN THE RUSSELL PEARCE RECALL.
If the Libertarian leaders do not step in and denounce Kielsky, then they will be remembered as contributors to the oppressor, too. Where is the Libertarian leadership?
Stephen Lemons who writes for the Phoenix New Times wrote:
Well, I spoke with Mr. Kielsky this evening, and all you need to know is that he doesn’t care if his candidacy adversely affects the recall, causing Pearce to be re-elected November 8.
Indeed, I believe Kielsky relishes his role as spoiler and will love any attention he can wring from the press and the blogs.
I’ll follow up in a bit on some of the things he had to say, but I do so grudgingly, knowing that he will worship any scrap written about him.
It’s a very sad state of affairs. He’s a very poor representative of Libertarian ideals, and in running for state Senate in LD 18 he is betraying every Libertarian who has ever worked against Pearce’s odious rule.
I watched the 2012 Presidential Candidate GOP debate on Cinco de Mayo, and I must tell you that I was not really encouraged with the candidates except for one – former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. Gary is a fellow at CATO Institute and he comes with considerable economic Libertarian experience. He can crunch numbers, do a cost benefit analysis on our suffering economy, and is probably one of the most Capitalistic thinkers out of the bunch. However, his abortion views are something I cannot support during the primary election phase. Mitt Romney lost the 2008 primary election to McCain when Romney’s video of his “oath to protect a woman’s right to choose” played over and over again via social networks.
How can I sell the Republican Party Presidential Candidate to Latinos in light of the past year where GOPers have introduced harsh anti-immigrant laws that swept the nation? Most Latinos in our nation have been affected in some form or another because they knew of someone or a relative who was being deported. President Obama has deported more undocumented immigrants than George W. Bush.
How did the other GOP Presidential candidates perform in the debate?
I believe Rick Santorum is a no-go because he has extremism stamped on his forehead. Rick Santorum’s 2006 campaign was aimed against President George W. Bush’s legal immigration plan.
Herman Cain seems to be a no-go because he is not the most polished speaker to begin with. Put him up against Obama and we’re done.
Tim Pawlenty is okay, but am skeptical. Ron Paul? He made us laugh.
Before the debate, I have been keenly following Jon Huntsman who was the former Governor of Utah. He is good looking, wealthy, and an experienced individual who has been living in China as the ambassador of China under the Obama administration.
I was relieved to hear Huntsman opposes abortion and is a 2nd amendment advocate. Some have stated that Mitt Romney would pose a hurdle to him but this is not so. Mitt Romney gave his oath to protect a woman’s right to choose, remember? Therefore, Huntsman wouldn’t have to worry because some of the most reliable primary election GOP voters are those from the pro life movement.
Sounds good so far, right? Not quite. I’m uncomfortable with Huntsman recruiting McCain’s former advisors. Once Latinos find out about this, they will be quickly reminded of McCain’s opposition to the DREAM Act in 2010. McCain soon became an ex-amigo with the Latino community, and if I had a suggestion to give to Mr. Huntsman it would be for him to seek Karl Rove’s strategic political advice instead. President George W. Bush obtained 44% of the Latino vote during the 2004 Presidential elections. McCain only received 31%. The goal for the 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate is to lock in at least 40% of the Latin vote to receive enough electoral votes.
One thing that Huntsman has to his favor with regard to increasing the Latin vote is the recent immigrant-friendly stance led by the Latter Day Saints (LDS) of Jesus Christ when the church helped to introduce the Utah Compact. Huntsman could say that President Obama abandoned the Latinos who voted him in 2008 when he failed to deliver his immigration promise. State legislators have been screaming for immigration reform across the nation as they introduce their isolationist unconstitutional laws, but the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed that the immigration issue is the job of the federal government (under the Supremacy Clause) to which Obama has failed to act upon.
Some pundits have made the mistake by saying Latinos will not be motivated to vote during the 2012 Presidential Elections, however, this was before the recent announcement of the National Tequila Party Movement in which concerts, events, rallies and dinners will motivate Latinos in all high Hispanic populated states to be consistent Primary election voters as well as general election voters.
I have a feeling that 2012 will be the year of the Latin-American. And I am not talking about this in a Mayan/Aztec calendar sense. Nay, I’m talking in a ‘vote the issue’ sense where both Latino Republicans and Latino Democrats are proving to be autonomous and pernickety type of voters.
Something to think about.
