Former Vermont Governor and DNC Chairman Howard Dean says Republicans don’t like Latino voters! Dean made that comment on MSNBC’s Ed Shultz show. Dean has said in the past on CBS’ Face the Nation that “Latinos are terrified of the Republicans because they seem to have a total tin ear when it comes to the basic needs of treating people with dignity.”
Dean went further telling Shultz that Republicans do not care about anyone but themselves and their “corporate masters, like the Koch brothers.” He added that Republicans have “one master, and that’s money.” Dean also said Republicans don’t care about the average working American but only about “the corporations who are giving them all that money to put them into office.” Dean then posed the question, “So who are they going to serve?”. That’s a good question but, honestly, I’m wondering the same about the Democrats. Who do they serve? Do they really care about Hispanics and working Americans or only about the corporations who fund their election campaigns? Further, I’m not placing much faith in the words of Howard Dean as I’m still reeling from his insane yelling rant when he was chairman of the DNC. Anyone remember that?
In all honesty I have to say one thing about this issue. That is I’m wondering if EITHER party likes Latino voters! I see a lot of the same behavior from both parties and I really question their sincerity. I know members of both parties are owned and paid for by some big corporations and I know that they vote the way their owners, not the voters, want them to. In fact, it seems to me that Republican and Democrat politicians have a “tin ear” when it comes to almost anything voters want. Case in point: Obamacare! The health insurance companies wanted it and helped fashion it but the voters did not yet we got it rammed down our throats anyway. So, as I said, I question the sincerity of both parties. And as for not liking Latino voters? Well the FACT is we ARE here and we ARE a voting block to be reckoned with and, in fact, we are a growing voting block so we really don’t care if you like us or not!! In other words….STICK IT!!
