Republicans have been positioned by Democrats as non-compassionate, money-hungry, selfish, politicians. If you believe what Democrats say, you might also believe we are responsible for Global Warming, high gas prices, and Islamic Terrorism in America.
Lies have been spread for so long about our Republican Party, people think they’re true. A lack of counter-messaging has left us playing “catch-up” in Hispanic communities, where we find ourselves undoing the damage caused by decades of liberal assault on our legal system, education system and Constitution.
We have become trapped, like a dog relying on it’s master for food, Hispanics are fast becoming a slave to the government, counting on support for survival. Isn’t there more to life than figuring out how to get more handouts? Shouldn’t we be using our God given skills and talents to provide for our families and advance civilization?
Left with the ability to choose, our community is trending toward government assistance which leads to generations of Hispanics living in poverty. Dependency is becoming an epidemic in the Hispanic Community.
While some find their way to success, the majority do not. Today, we find more and more young people living at home with mom and dad because they cannot support themselves. These young people can barely do basic math or spell words correctly, and are in no position to compete for a job. Parents who thought they would have reduced expenses after their child graduated and moved out, only find themselves continuing to support their children…even into their mid twenties.
Haven’t you noticed the obvious learning deficiencies in many of the students who graduate? I was talking with a girl, a Senior, who was about to graduate and asked what her “aspirations” were…She replied, “what are those?”
Education is the great equalizer, and if we don’t get a grip on OUR Education system, we’ll continue promoting and passing, graduating uneducated students because we don’t want to make them “feel” bad.
The student who barely squeaked through High School is now applying for student loans and State Tuition Assistance. He goes to school, excited and hopeful, but shocked by reality. He can’t keep up. Soon, he’s behind and losing faith in his ability, and after a semester or two if he’s lucky, he succumbs to the pressure and calls it quits. Why? Because he never received a real education. He was not equipped to compete with other students who could actually multiply and divide.
Now, he’s gotta go home and face the music and try to find a job. “See, I told you you’d be back,” someone might say. “You should go see Johnny at the tire shop…he’s looking for somebody.”
And there we have it…the decision to work or not to work.
If he was raised with work ethic and his parents constantly encouraged him to make good grades and learn, he would have applied more effort while he was in school…at least enough to learn the basics and get a good education…a real knowledge of mathematics and science. What we’re dealing with, is the residual effects of generations of people who have been deprived of proper parenting and education.
His parents weren’t focused enough on education, resulting in an uneducated young adult with the world stacked against him. Sure, if a student had more self-confidence and reassurance from mentors, he might have enough overcome the obstacles before him, but parenting or lack thereof is the culprit.
The student is the only one who sits in the classroom and is ultimately responsible for his grades, but how do we expect the student to learn if there are no consequences when he fails? How else do we learn, if not by our mistakes? How many teachers go along with the program and pass students? How many Superintendents know their students’ education is not as it should be, yet fail to do anything about it? For what…money?
If we Hispanics want to regain control of our communities and provide Conservative solutions, we must understand the reason we are in this position in the first place. We must acknowledge the agenda of the Democratic Party has been driving the train in the Hispanic community for at least 30 years, and the Liberals in the Party think they can take away the will to succeed and replace it with the will to take proceeds.
Movements launched by Liberals, including the development of organizations dedicated to funding these movements, have been planting the message of entitlement. For clarity, the only thing we’re entitled to is Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.
So, if an able-bodied person takes money from the government, knowing they could easily get a job and earn their living, they are taking from you. They have chosen to be a burden on society, rather than contribute. But if an able-bodied person wakes up every morning, goes to work, puts in 8-10 hours, comes home, showers, spends a few hours with his kids and goes to bed only to do it again the next day, that person is making a positive impact in our community. He is vested in the community.
Our Hispanic population is compounding. Our birth rate compared to others will create the reality where Hispanics will be the majority. Continuing on the path we’re on, we cannot sustain our community, and if we expect things to improve we must do it ourselves.
If we want Secure Borders and Immigration Reform, we should lead the dialogue. What’s the best scenario and who knows what would work best? Who knows, but the dialogue should be inclusive of Hispanics. Immigration Reform is “taboo” among politicians…who fear retaliation from these “leftist” groups who will “sic” their people on them, calling them racists. We need to stop the nonsense and allow our legislators to do their job and create a way for us to address issues rather than sweep them under the rug.
What if victory in 2012 hinged on the Hispanic vote like everyone says it will? Would we have a second Obama term, or will Hispanics change the course of history by voting for a Republican?
Time will tell…but until then, click the “volunteer” tab on our website and join us. It will take an army of volunteers to undo the damage, and we need everyone we can muster…
It’s not too late.
