If the presidency of Barack Obama was responsible for the conservative awakening in the Hispanic community, then the 2010 midterm elections may go down as the event that changed America’s perception of the Hispanic community. Thanks to hardcore leftist elected officials and high-profile Hispanic activists, America has held the view that all Latinos believe in law breaking, open borders, and the importation of Latin American socialism into the United States. These liberals have tried to follow the template set up by the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. It goes something like this: Anoint yourself the leader of a minority community by perpetuating victimhood and government reliance. And then take your voting bloc and sell your community down the river in exchange for a seat of power at the Democrats’ table. There was only one problem with the plan; Hispanics didn’t want to give up on the American dream just yet. Not the left’s DREAM Act — the actual American dream.
One of the best results of the conservative awakening in the Hispanic community was the surge of Latinos elected to high office in the 2010 elections. Marco Rubio will be the next senator from Florida. Republican Brian Sandoval will be Nevada’s first Latino governor. Susana Martinez is the newly elected GOP Latina who replaces a liberal Hispanic governor in New Mexico. Bill Flores beat Pelosi rubber stamp Chet Edwards in Texas’ 17th district. And while we’re in the Lone Star State, Quico Canseco defeated Ciro Rodriguez. Bear in mind that Rodriguez is one of those Latinos whose values are more in line with Fidel Castro than an American congressman. These are just a few examples of Latinos — over six million voted in the 2010 midterms — flexing their conservative muscles and making their views known through conservative representatives.

For nearly two years, the tea parties have warned the Ruling Class there would be serious consequences to ignoring the will of the people, and that day finally arrived this past Tuesday, Nov. 2. The tsunami was felt at all levels of government as a majority of House, Senate and Governor races were won by candidates who had substantial support from tea party voters. Previously the tsunami had been felt within the GOP when tea party voters ousted many incumbent and “establishment-preferred” Republicans in primaries.
Now it is important that Republicans read the right message in the tea leaves: “You are on probation!”
It seems paradoxical that a political party could win such commanding victories, yet be held in such low regard by voters. A recent NYT/CBS poll (10/26) found the favorable rating for the Republican Party was 41% and a recent AP poll (10/18) pegged the job performance approval rating for Congressional Republicans at 28%. As my parents always used to say, “trust must be earned” – and it is earned with actions, not pledges.
Republicans have failed us miserably in the recent past by failing, among other things, to curb spending and debt, reform entitlements, or tackle illegal immigration. In fact, they have bloated spending, increased debt and expanded entitlement programs.
Republicans cannot afford to play politics at the margins, focus more on maintaining their power rather than changing Washington, or return us to the business-as-usual approach of “plodding along.” It isn’t often that one can claim to speak for the entire tea party movement without swift rebuke, but I feel confident in saying that the tea parties will not tolerate timid or self-motivated politics.
The stakes could not be higher. Americans are threatened with a disastrous fiscal collapse unless immediate and drastic action is taken to address the underlying causes. Neither major party has had the political fortitude to offer such a plan. The Republican Pledge to America released in September was plainly inadequate. The tea parties demand courageous action – now.

LOS ANGELES — California voters weren’t high on a ballot measure aimed at legalizing marijuana and appeared to heed warnings of legal chaos and a federal showdown when they defeated the initiative to make the state the first in the nation to allow the recreational use and sale of pot.
In addition, supporters of Proposition 19 blamed Tuesday’s outcome on the conservative leanings of older voters who participate in midterm elections. They acknowledged that young voters had not turned out in sufficient numbers to secure victory but said they were ready to try again in two years.
“It’s still a historic moment in this very long struggle to end decades of failed marijuana prohibition,” said Stephen Gutwillig, California director for the Drug Policy Project. “Unquestionably, because of Proposition 19, marijuana legalization initiatives will be on the ballot in a number of states in 2012, and California is in the mix.”
Tim Rosales, who managed the No on 19 campaign, scoffed at that attitude from the losing side.

Until now, the Associated Press has actually done a credible job on economic reporting — but then again, this is a political analysis, not economic reporting, and it shows. Paul Wiseman asserts that electing Republicans in the House will extend the current economic stagnation, thanks to increased uncertainty about regulation and tax policy. Somehow that will risk our current miserable “recovery,” which we have because of uncertainty introduced by Democrats.
A standoff between the Obama administration and emboldened Republicans will probably block any new help for an economy squeezed by slow growth and high unemployment. Congress might also create paralyzing uncertainty for investors and businesses by fighting over taxes, deficits, health care and financial regulation.
“We expect massive gridlock and little cooperation,” writes Brian Gardner, Washington analyst for the financial firm Keefe, Bruyette & Woods.
If times were good, gridlock wouldn’t matter so much. A Republican Congress and Democratic White House butted heads in the mid- and late ’90s, after all, and their sparring did nothing to derail a strong economy.
But now, nearly a year and a half after the official end of the Great Recession, the economy still isn’t growing fast enough to bring down unemployment, which is stuck at 9.6 percent.

UPDATE: Nov. 2, 2010 7:50 pm (pst) – FOXNews has confirmed its prediction of MARCO RUBIO as a winner.
Florida Republican strategists are expecting a state-wide sweep tomorrow, and it’s all because of Tea Party favorite Marco Rubio.
They believe voters turning out to make rubio’s florida’s next senator will keep checking Republican candidates down the ballot.
The latest Quinnipiac poll, which came out this morning, shows Rubio comfortably ahead with 45% of voter’s support, compared to Independent Governor Charlie Crist at 31% and Democrat Kendrick Meek at 18%.
For the first time, Sunday night Florida’s top two Republican candidates joined forces, Gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott met up with Rubio, rallying with a thousand people in Sarasota.
Rubio is wrapping up an event Monday in Orlando before heading south to Miami.
Meanwhile Meek is not giving up, but rather fighting ’til the finish.
He began a 24-hour, 24-event marathon at midnight on Sunday, and will rally with President Clinton Monday night in Orlando. Clinton has campaigned for Meek extensively.Independent Governor Crist has been all over the state, feverishly campaigning in the final days leading up to the election.
As for the Gubernatorial race, it’s the closest race in the state.
The Quinnipiac poll shows Democratic candidate Alex Sink with 44%, Scott with 43%, well within the margin of error. Bottom line, it’s a dead-heat and some polls show 9% of Florida voters remain undecided on this race.
Floridians know this race very well.

On Tuesday, for the first time, voters in 33 states will be able to vote using some aspect of the Internet. But no matter the outcome, experts say no one will be certain those votes haven’t been tampered with.
“We are still a decade away from being sure that Internet voting is secure and not subject to manipulation,” said Susan Dzieduszycka-Suinat, president of the Overseas Vote Foundation, which helps servicemen and Americans living abroad to vote in elections using the Internet.
She said she supports delivering ballots via the Web to overseas voters, but she adds that no voting system has proven safe enough to collect ballots that way.
Her position got a major boost earlier this month when Washington, D.C., conducted a pilot project to test its new electronic voting system for the collection of overseas and military absentee ballots. The system was opened to the public to test how secure and usable it was.
Within 36 hours, a team of University of Michigan computer students and teachers had taken it over. They changed votes, “elected” a Star wars robot chairman of the City Council, and installed the school’s fight song, “Hail to the Victors,” which would play 15 seconds after someone voted.
“Without the hacking of the District of Columbia system we would never have known how vulnerable Internet voting systems are,” said John Bonifaz, legal director of Voter Action.
“It showed that it wasn’t just a domestic problem of vote security but a matter of national security,” he said, referring to a second problem the U. of Michigan hackers discovered as they took over the system.
According to J. Alex Halderman, the professor of electrical engineering and computer science who led the hacking effort, they weren’t alone inside the system. They tracked two other computers trying to hack in — one that originated in China and another in Iran.
“Internet voting is a crazily insecure and unreliable system that most rational computer scientists think is an absurd way to vote,” Boniface said.

The Ideology of Bondage vs. Freedom
October 24, 2010
This election season has been ferocious on both sides. As a conservative, I must qualify that I lean towards the GOP and Tea Party core values; specifically the core values of our Constitution. With leaders like Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint and Michelle Bachmann and spokespersons like Michael Steel, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Mike Huckabee, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingram, Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich and all of the Tea Party Leaders, the battle this mid-term election is between the ideologies of Bondage and Freedom.
The Founders of this Nation framed our Constitution around the premise that all men are equal and “…endowed by (God) our Creator with certain unalienable rights… with freedoms of LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS. (Barack Obama seems to want to leave out “by God” in some of his recent speeches; I do not think it was unintentional.)
We who believe have Faith that the God whom our Forefathers, Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin and Lincoln proclaimed was founded on the TRUTH of the Holy Scriptures; even Martin Luther King, who was a devout Christian, is a modern day founder. These are our unshakable roots. These roots cannot and will not be shaken by the likes of Barack Obama and George Soros, who now is reported to have obtained a “god complex” just like Obama obtained a “messiah” complex when running for office.
Our founding Faith and Laws came from the Holy Bible which is centered around God our Creator who is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent and in His beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Savior and LORD. This God written about in the Holy Scriptures is, in fact, the One who created all things.
If we assert that our rights come from God and not from men, we have freedom. If our Nation drifts away from the belief in God our Heavenly Father, He will allow us to fall into man’s laws and rules which will constitute Bondage.

AP – Oct. 19: Claude Rwaganje, a resident of Portland, Maine, for more than 13 years, speaks at a news conference. Portland residents will vote in November on a proposal that would give legal residents who are not U.S. citizens the right to vote in local elections.
PORTLAND, Maine — Like his neighbors, Claude Rwaganje pays taxes on his income and taxes on his cars. His children have gone to Portland’s public schools. He’s interested in the workings of Maine’s largest city, which he has called home for 13 years.
There’s one vital difference, though: Rwaganje isn’t a U.S. citizen and isn’t allowed to vote on those taxes or on school issues. That may soon change.
Portland residents will vote Nov. 2 on a proposal to give legal residents who are not U.S. citizens the right to vote in local elections, joining places like San Francisco and Chicago that have already loosened the rules or are considering it.

With the power balance of Congress on the line, Democrats have been noticeably unwilling to tout their largest legislative success: President Obama’s landmark health care overhaul.
Scott Simon, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition, recently asked former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Howard Dean why his party has been silent about the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act while campaigning. According to Dean, Democrats are waiting until after they win before “educating” constituents about the new law provisions.
“I don’t think we should be making the case right now,” Dean said during a Saturday interview. “Elections are not the time to educate people. You win the election, then you educate people afterwards.”
“But the president’s doing what he should be doing,” he continued. “This is a bare-knuckle fight. It’s between the far right, which has taken over the Republican Party, and the rest of us.”
Dean also predicted that the public’s opinion of the health care law will increase once people are “educated” as to how it will help them.
“Well, I think actually you’re seeing more and more people that are,” Dean said. “The more people that begin to understand the bill, which is incredibly complex, the better I think the bill does.”
A partial transcript from the NPR interview follows (via CNSNews.com):
Simon: Why haven‘t Democratic candidates been out on the hustings boasting about having passed President Obama’s comprehensive health care reform?

Did the only debate in the Senate race in Nevada provide any movement? Perhaps just a bit, although today’s Rasmussen survey result falls well within the margin of error of the poll previous to the debate. Sharron Angle hits 50% and tops Harry Reid by three points as Nevada voters start to solidify their choices:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle remain locked in a tight race for the U.S. Senate in Nevada in the first survey following last Thursday night’s debate.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Angle with 50% to Reid’s 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) are undecided. …
