Latino Participation in the 2018 Primary Election

Week Ending Ocrober 14th

Elections have consequences some not good.

We are coming to probably the most consequential election in the history of the country.  At the White House we have a man that uses Race. White Supremacy, White, Nationalism, Christian Conservatives, Conservative talk shows, and any form of demagoguery to divide White and Non-White America.  Trump’s supporters don’t care about America or democracy, they only know that their man is in the White House.  Something like 75% of so-called Republicans support him.  This is a huge electoral advantage.  In states that he won big Republicans don’t dare challenge him.

We have Trump Republicans in Tarrant County.  It is time to drain the swamp and it begins in here, school board, city hall, county and state.  Time to cleanse the country of hate.  The difference between Trump Republicans and local Republicans is that local Republicans are afraid of the figure on the Did not Vote column.  If we could get these folks to go vote, we could control the outcome of any local election.  If we want to change our destiny we have to change t his figure.  To change this number, we need every Latino politician, clergy and business owners to get involved.  We are not out to register votes, we are out to get people to go vote.  This has to be a neighbor to neighbor strategy.  This is not an effort to sell either party.  This is an effort to get people to go vote.  If we all try, we will change our destiny.  If not, we will be ruled by those that control our destiny.
