Year of the Latina Republican

If anyone has been watching the news about the midterm elections and their impact on the future of America, they would have seen the many national television interviews of the three Republican Latina women running for Congress in South Texas this year.  Interviews with each of these three women have shown them to be extremely knowledgeable and hard fighters for the values of Texas.  All national analysts are looking at these three Congressional Districts for the big sign that Hispanics are realigning to the Republican Party or not.  Public opinion data says that Hispanics ARE making a strong shift to the Republican Party.  However, this opinion seems to totally rest with the outcome of these three Congressional Districts.

The Democrats’ Hispanic Voter Problem

It's Not As Bad As You Think—It’s Worse

“The Democrats are steadily losing ground with Hispanic voters. The seriousness of this problem tends to be underestimated in Democratic circles for a couple of reasons: (1) they don’t realize how big the shift is; and (2) they don’t realize how thoroughly it undermines the most influential Democratic theory of the case for building their coalition.”

The Slippery Slope from the Abuse of Power

One of the reasons so many have fled Latin America to come to the United States is the protection counted on when living in a country that operates under the rule of law rather than by the whims of an authoritarian leader. Today in America, the Democrats, who currently control the House, the Senate and the White House are practicing the leadership-by-whim style of government. 

The latest example is the student loan debt forgiveness policy announced by President Biden. Last year his own Department of Education acknowledged that it lacked the “statutory authority” to forgive such loans on a “mass basis.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously said in July 2021 that “People think that the president of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not,” she reminded us. “He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress,” said Pelosi. If you get your news from CNN or MSNBC, you probably haven’t seen that video.

Both Pelosi and Biden have conveniently flip-flopped less than 90 days from the midterm elections, a political calculation that could certainly backfire. Let’s observe the risks and project what will be the outcome.
