39. Sometimes concentration on groups can become divisive
Thank you Latinos who voted for President Obama. I hope that your community like all communities will be better served, your rights enlarged, your freedoms guaranteed, and your economic security enhanced. With that said let me state this is supposed to be a nation where the government servesd all the people. I am a white guy who supports progressive ideas and fair application across the economic racial, economic, and sexual spectrum.
Much is being made about the Latino vote and Isuppose many politicians will recognize they musr serve that bloc if they want to get elected, but I feel sad that Latinos have to be seen as a power bloc and that one decides to give them the rights and dignity theydeserve as human beings because they are gaining political power. I am a big believer in the American way and I believe our best nation can be created by instituting the reforms that empowers every individual. I am saddened at the competition that can emerge as power moves from bloc to bloc as one group is served at the disadvantage of another. Right now gerrymandering is used to serve some at the expense of the many here in Ohio. I believe it is also being used in Texas to destroy the power of individual Latiunos to affect elect elections. It is my belief that that as American we must champion the processesthat serve the interests of all to make the best nation for all. Lets get rid of Gerrymandering and get a House of Representatives who actually represent us rather than billionaires. In many cases all this voting bloc stuff hurts members of that bloc because it ignores the processes that keep the enemies of the bloc in power- gerrymandering. Lets work together to make sure all Americans are represented equally and as well as possible together.
With that said, we owe Latinos much thanks.
