We hope to see former Texas Mayor Julian Castro help turn the State of Texas turn purple soon. He is set to speak as keynote speaker for the DNC tonight at 10:00 pm eastern time or 7:00 pm Arizona time.
We need more rising stars like Castro to root out the Republican Congressman Lamar Smith extremists. Someone like Lamar Smith should not hold power in Texas for much longer and he knows it. Republicans are the modern day Dixiecrats and are so last generation. They no longer believe in the big tent, which is why we see the Democratic Party working harder for the Latino vote … and for those of you critics who think Latinos do not want to get wooed — WE DO.
LATINOS HAVE BEEN WANTING BOTH PARTIES TO WORK HARDER FOR OUR LOVE AND THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE. It’s about freakin’ time, too!
According to WIKI:
Castro was born in San Antonio on September 16, 1974 to Maria “Rosie” Castro and Jessie Guzman. He is the identical twin brother of politician Joaquín Castro. His mother was a Chicano political activist who helped establish the chicano political party La Raza Unida.
So why does Mexican-American Julian Castro trump Cuban-American Sen. Marco Rubio?
Easy. It’s a numbers game.
Almost 70% of the entire Hispanic Population pie consists of those who are of Mexican descent while Cubans consist of only 3% of the Hispanic population pie.
Get the picture?
Cuban Republicans like Sen. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are for Cuban amnesty while damning the Mexican, Irish, Indian immigrants. In other words, the immigration issue doesn’t hurt them as much as it does us because they receive amnesty. Cuban Republicans have squandered their Latino street credibility and in my view it is time for the dog to wag the tail instead of the other way around.
Mexican-American voters are the gold mine due to our sheer numbers and voting strength that will be off the hook as years go on. Hallelujah to that!
