Hispanic Festival 2015-09-28 edited

There are cities in this country that are very heavily Republican, like Mesa, Arizona, and Colorado Springs. Probably anywhere in Orange County, California, most of Texas and 90% of Alabama. And then there are places where it's really hard to find them: Boston, San Francisco, four of the five boroughs of New York and, um here. In the city, that is. The suburbs are mixed.

I've moved on to our Hispanic Festival. We don't have a big Spanish-speaking population but it's enthusiastic. These partisans, though, were not getting a lot of visitors and you could question their strategy. Given the statements of this year's Republican candidates, registering Hispanic voters could get more votes for Hillary.

I can't imagine any Hispanics supporting the building of a wall... but I can hardly imagine why ANYONE would support that. History shows it will not work.

I for one am hoping it did just what you said.

I wonder how they feel, believing in a party that is committing political suicide in slow motion.

Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Eisenhower would be horrified by what has become of their party.

I agree with Sharon, William and Halcyon.

As much as we seem to have a habit of regularly changing our Prime Minister, your politics are so much more complicated Bob :)
