Thoughts on American Politics in 2012 as it Pertains to Latino Voters

The Republicans are committing political suicide by catering to the xenophobic vote. Assuming that Latinos will vote for the candidate promising the most free taxpayer money shows how out-of-touch the mainstream media and a lot of American politicians from both parties are with voters in the Hispanic community.If the Republicans would talk about social issues and economic issues and drop the endless ranting about immigration I would almost guarantee they'd receive 60+ percent of votes from…See More

Profile Information

About me
Pedro is the American-born son of an immigrant father and first-generation American mother. Through hard work, sometimes working two jobs at once, both became college-educated. Pedro's father started home health care business, his mother became a nurse, and later a nurse practitioner. She is the owner and proprietor of a primary care health clinic, and also a skin care spa and nutrition shop.

Needless to say, Pedro has never been at a loss for motivation, having witnessed his parents go from being very poor to successful enough to put four children through college, and one through medical school.

Pedro works in the IT field for a company called Egan Medical. The business is an online retailer or home health care and medical equipment products and supplies.
What is your current career title or dream job?
I would love to be the retired owner of a miniature cruise ship (basically a massive yacht), whose job would be to lay out on the boat's main deck, surrounded by a harem of beautiful women feeding me strawberries and grapes in the sun.
