That's just another misconception among the millions that exist regarding the stupid lumping of all hispanics as one race or ethnicity. Cuba was a country where a large percentage of the population was completely white. The following paragraph illustrates this fact well:
""The elite upper crust of Cuban society was lily white throughout much of that unfortunate island's history, and Cuban society was essentially segregated. It would probably amaze most people to realize that the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, who came from a mixed race background, but took control of the Cuban government in a coup masterminded while he was a communications sargeant in the Cuban army, was not allowed to join the elite Havana Yatch Club, even as he was President, because he was not white"" http://blogcritics.org/archives/2007/06/22/194532.php
After the revolution, which was successful in part due to racial tensions, intermarriages, which had been taboo all along suddenly became acceptable. In today's Cuba, the majority are mixed mulattoes.
What I do mean, is that even with all the propaganda of equality spewed by communism, Cuba is still run largely by a tiny group of white elites. Proof enough that socialism and communism for all their lies do not deliver.
Therefore, racism is alive and well in the western hemisphere's prime communist stronghold, even if (surprise!) you never hear about it. Racism is also prominent on every spot on the globe and has been going on for all of recorded history. So let's stop making this an exclusively white-American issue. http://www.allaboutpopularissues.org/world-racism-faq.htm
That being said, IMHO, wanting to push back great masses invading national borders can not be attributed solely to racism, although socialist and communist agendas would love for us to believe it is always so. That was my point in using Cuba as an example.
In the meantime, the whole issue of illegal immigration begs the question; if instead of the neighbors to the south (Mexico), it was the neighbors to the north (Canada), who were coming in by the droves, using hospitals as primary care for free, eating up tax dollars, littering our cities, demanding prominence for another language, threatening to push and expand their frontier lines forward, etc., etc., etc.,.....would the American public be equally outraged, or would everyone just simply shrug their shoulders in complacency? ....Well, they are of course, after all...."white" folks....
I could have sworn that I saw a post from you a week or so ago apologizing for your Ron Paul bashing and indicating that you were done with it?
Those newsletters are old, tired and outdated (and mostly penned by a third party). I guess that, just like old, tired and outdated liberal ideals, they die hard.
Would you propose that we would be better served by the failed liberal policies of those who believe that only THEY knew what was best - and that includes not only knowing better than other leaders and politicians but also knowing far better than the ignorant voters whose lives they proposed to run from on high.
Yes, it certainly is a big leap to go from a federal government who has eroded our rights and freedoms, dictates what we can and cannot do and spies on it's citizens to one which exists primarily to serve us by protecting our lives and property and insuring harmony between the independent states - but that was our founders vison and we better try to take that leap sooner than later.
Otherwise, what we have is just the charade of Republican versus "Democrat, conservative versus liberal (or more like neocon versus socialist) that will surely lead to the New World Order no matter which you choose. The only real question is which one will get us there the fastest.
In case you have not noticed, we have long since ceased being sovereign individuals and are now mere property of the state - "man and other animals". When you become property you end up being sold to the highest bidder, just as we and our property have been bought and sold to big monied interests over and over - or else sold into the servitude that goes along with liberal big government handouts. Ultimately, property ends up with those who have the most money and influence to peddle. And most of the money and influence for the buying and selling is in the hands of the New World Order.
The silly business of debating politics like it is real and bashing Ron Paul and his ideas only serves only to deflect our vision from what is happening right under our noses. Unlike anyone else in the political charade the blinded sheeple are caught up in, Ron Paul would halt the slide towards one world government and would restore at least some of our rights and freedoms.
Despite what I am sure are very good intentions, your ideas and Ron Paul bashing do just the opposite.
