Charlie Crist: A Candidate Millennials Can Support

Charlie Crist: A Candidate Millennials Can Support

Vote

The moment has come for Millennials to rally behind Charlie Crist. One thing is for sure – Millennials are tired of Rick Scott’s far right policies and are seeking to free Florida of Rick Scott.

Florida Millennials are looking for a candidate who can understand them and is willing fight for what they believe. Charlie Crist is that candidate and Millennials should rally behind him.

Why should Millennials vote for Charlie Crist? Let’s take a look at his stance on the issues.

EDUCATION

First, Crist understands the importance of education and has spoken against Rick Scott’s devastating budget cuts. These budget cuts have only hurt Florida’s students and the state’s education system.

Crist has made it clear that if he were elected Governor he would fully repeal Rick Scott’s cuts to education. Just as important, he would make sure that Florida’s companies receive tax incentives for partnering with or donating to educational initiatives.

Charlie Chris has also stated that if elected he would make college affordable for all Florida students. Let’s not forget Crist would work hard to increase state funding for colleges and Universities – something that Millennials support.

JOBS

As Millennials we all know how hard it’s been for many to find work right after they graduate college. Because Millennials have gone through a lot these past years, they are seeking someone that can understand the needs of a Millennial and this includes jobs.

Unlike Rick Scott, Charlie Crist would put people first – this means using incentives to help small businesses grow and ultimately create jobs for Millennials.

Because job creation is key for Millennials to prosper, Crist would also invest in programs like “Visit Florida,” as he has mentioned many times. Programs like this would encourage people from around the world to visit Florida, thus creating jobs for the people of Florida and Millennials alike.

ENVIRONMENT

Looking up

One thing you can bet on is that Millennials care about the environment. In fact we are passionate about it. We understand the importance and urgency of protecting the environment. This is why Charlie Crist has promised to protect the Florida Everglades and beaches and ensure every Floridian has clean water and clean air.

Just as important, Crist has made it clear that he will never support near-shore drilling for oil off the coasts of Florida – something Millennials applaud and support.

These are just a few examples of Charlie Crist policies that can become a reality if he is elected Governor. As a Millennial I feel Crist is a perfect candidate for Florida’s Millennials to support and if you want a candidate that understands your needs and is willing to fight for you then Charlie Crist is the guy to vote for. Crist will improve the overall condition of Florida for everyone.

In the end, no matter who you vote for the important thing is that you participate in our democratic system. We encourage all Millennials – no matter Republican or Democrat – to register to vote and of course to vote during election days.

Donde  existe una necesidad, nace un derecho

SPANISH EDITION: Las Mujeres y el Derecho al Voto!!

By Romy Esposito

Nuestro derecho al voto ha sido atacado, discriminado, aprobado y revocado en diferentes ocasiones alrededor del mundo.

Estados Unidos

 

1

 

A principios del siglo XIX, las mujeres de Estados Unidos eran consideradas ciudadanas de “segunda clase”; sus quehaceres se limitaban al aseo del hogar, la educación de los niños y la atención de su marido. Vivian en una época en donde opinar, hablar en público o viajar solas, era “provocativo”.
Un grupo de “mujeres valientes” se atrevieron a encabezar el movimiento del “voto femenino” el cual se innaguro oficialmente en 1848 dando paso a la primera “Convención Por Los Derechos De La Mujer,” en Seneca Falls, New York.

 2

Fue un largo proceso, la campaña por conseguir el voto femenino se desmoralizo; diferencias de estrategias entre las activistas, el comienzo de la primera guerra mundial y ajustadas agendas políticas hicieron que el movimiento se opaque en muchas ocasiones. Sin embargo, ELLAS no se conformaron con menos; les tomo mas de  100 años ganar sus derechos, hasta que finalmente llego el dia tan esperado, el 26 de Agosto de 1920, la enmienda 19 de la constitución fue ratificada.

Las Mujeres de Estados Unidos ya podian VOTAR!

                                                                                                                                                                                   América Latina

En los países latinoamericanos la lucha fue igual de intensa; Uruguay sin duda fue el mas radical y se puso a la vanguardia marcando el sendero para los demás países.

El 3 de Julio de 1927, en un movimiento revolucionario, la lucha contra la desigualdad e exclusión de la mujer al voto llego a su fin; por primera vez las mujeres acudieron a las urnas. En 1938 quedo oficialmente ratificado y se convierte en el primer país latinoamericano en aprobar el voto femenino y el sexto  en el mundo.

La emancipación femenina alcanzo su victoria en los años consecuentes extendiéndose al resto de America Latina. Mexico fue ejemplo de una lucha incansable; donde mujeres valientes alzaron sus voces combatiendo la idea que la política era solo para hombres. Yucatan como estado clave tomo la iniciativa; las mujeres Mexicanas vieron la posibilidad de salir de la marginación politica, nuevas ideas y vientos de cambios las movilizaron hasta alcanzar la victoria el 17 de Octubre de 1953 convirtiéndose en el ulitmo país de America latina en consolidar este derecho. Hace tan solo 60 anios atrás, las mujeres Mexicanas tienen VOZ en las urnas!!!

Ahora si, a Votar!

Estas historias que nos han remontado al pasado de nuestras madres y abuelas, nos sirven para recordar la importancia de ejercitar nuestro derecho como ciudadanas.

Regístrate a votar!!! Acude a las urnas y elige a tus gobernantes!!! Recuerda cuando estés votando, a todas esas “mujeres valientes” que lucharon para que hoy tú tengas el privilegio de votar y conviértete en una de ellas.

                                                                                                                             Siéntete orgullosa como mujer de participar activamente en    nuestra democracia!!!

Boycott Murrieta California For Protesting Small Refugee Children

Posted by

We support the boycott of Murrieta, California,  in light of their Mayor and Councilmen who are participating in terrorizing small refugee children.  We have Sought Outside Investigation From DOJ Regarding Murrieta Protestors Regarding Conspiracy To Commit Obstruction of Federal Officers And To Violate Civil Rights. 

From ABC 10:

Migrant children describe fear of facing protesters

 

About the Murrieta Boycott:

Murrieta, California has reared its racist head, so lets give them what they want and segregate them. Boycott all business in Murrieta, California!!
Description:

The mayor and the people of Murrieta, California decided that it was appropriate to make a political statement by harassing and traumatizing children. We are calling for a complete and total boycott of Murrieta, California. Their behavior is an insult to what America stands for. Avoid all business within the city limits of Murrieta, no gas, no food, no grocery shopping, no jack in the box. Nothing. Isolate Murrieta, California exactly as they want to be.

Our goals:
1. Encourage a boycott of all business in Murrieta.
2. Mayor Alan Long is held responsible for his encouragement and support of the racist protests.
3. The buses of refugee children are not harassed in any way.

Latino Voters Give ID-R Rep. Raul Labrador Thumbs Down Citing His Obstructionism

Posted by

Mexican-American / Latino Voters are giving Idaho Republican Representative a ‘thumbs down’ for his obstructionism.  American voters are tired of grid lock in Congress. Somos Independents voter group is keenly aware of how many millions of dollars Republicans and Democrats spend to reach out to our voter block group.  But, Independent voters are ready to DUMP THE TEA and extremism.

According to the Gallup, “Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years but down from 36% in 2008.”
According to the Independent Voter Network (IVN):

“The current Congress has an average 9.2 percent approval rating and 84.2 percent disapproval rating. … These numbers point to a grave problem: the House of Representatives is utterly unrepresentative.”

 

Independent Mexican-American voter via Carlos Galindo wrote:

 

For those not aware of this. We pointed it out Labrador is an Immigration Attorney by profession. Tell me he never asked for a pardon for a client that he represented. What that means is that he solicited amnesty.

Richard Hornos of TNTweeters not only noticed Labrador’s obstructionism, but also his flip flop approach where he tells the Latino audience one thing on Al Punto, but will vote contrary to what he tells Spanish speaking persons:
On 2/19/2013  said this on  What’s his position TODAY as candidate?
If the GOP decides on supporting Rep. Labrador’s obstructionist approach to fill Rep. Eric Cantor’s shoes, they will have to do so at the risk of these competitive districts.
