IT´S TIME THAT POLITICIANS LEARN NOT TO MAKE OFFERS THEY CAN NOT KEEP
The recent election on N o v e m b e r 4th gave surprising results, as Democrats received a severe punishment in the polls. 137 new State Representatives, 34 Senatorial posts and 30 new Governors from the Republican Party were elected. This is a significant triumph for Lincolns’ Party. This victory is, even more significant because lots of the victories were obtained in key states, such as Florida and Wisconsin.
As soon as the Polls were closed television commentators blamed the defeats to the low popularity of the president, his lack of action to crucial problems and, most of all the absence of the Hispanic vote, which was disenchanted with Democrats and the President for not fulfilling the promise of a comprehensive Migratory Reform.
Of course that lots of the blame placed on the President is exaggerated bologna and unfair rhetoric, as the opposition presented by Republicans to every proposal the president presented seemed to work. Let’s remember that President Obama opposed getting the country in another war in the Middle East, so Republicans branded him as weak. Obama presented an Immigration Comprehensive Reform that Republicans refused to, even consider. The President again was blamed for not solving this serious problem. On November 20thth used his powers to grant provisional 3 years staying to 5 million undocumented aliens who had children in this county, this action infuriated Republicans all over the country also. The president presented a Federal Spending plan; once again it was rejected to say that the wanted to over spend what the country didn´t have.
Although Democrats were punished for not taking action to solving the undocumented immigration problem when they had the power to do it, Republicans should receive most of the blame because they opposed every plan presented by the president to allow these people living in the shade to come out. They refuse to accept that they are the labor force of the country and our future, as their contribution to the economy is valuable. They don’t see that someone has to take the place of those workers in the factories, hotels, restaurants construction sites, etc. IN the same manner someone has to pay the retirement of the ´´Baby Boomers´´ In other words without the replenishment of workers and tax payers into the economy the future of the nation is bleak.
Of course it is clear that Democrats needed the Hispanic vote to win or retain their posts; they have always taken the Hispanic vote for granted, as though they had bought it. Well they had a sad awakening, but Republicans, on the other hand, should not sleep easy on their victory because the 20 millions of registered voters could whip them up again if they continue displaying their anti Hispanic and anti immigrant attitude.
Con miras a recuperar el voto hispano y derribar las pretensiones de los republicanos de adjudicarse una Victoria con los futuros votantes hispanos el Presidente tomó la decisión unilateral de dar protección a 5 millones de indocumentados
