3. The Republicans have lost the Latino Vote for a Generation
Much as the Democrats lost the South for a generation (More like 3), as LBJ famously said when signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the current Tea Party loons have lost Latino voters for at least a generation. Their extreme anti-immigrant positions have really turned the Latino community off. The Democrats should put for a fair, reasonable approach to becoming citizens and LET THE GOP SAY NO! If the Democrats would learn to be politically ruthless against the Republicans, they would be winning most of these fights.
What I do not want to see is the promise of citizenship for military service. Young Latinos should not be cannon-fadder for the evil corporate class and there unnecessary wars.
