Marco Rubio...A New American Century
By: Diane Sori* / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots / cprworldwidemedia.net
Now we're down to three...Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.
While Fiorina is one smart cookie, a great debater, and knows the
business end of things, the problem is that in today's day and age of
islamic terrorism that is simply not enough. As for Ted Cruz, the man
who seems to have forged an alliance of sorts with Donald Trump, which
might play well for now but when push comes to shove people will see
that Cruz aligned himself with a showman who spews the right words but
has no tangible policies to back-up those words...and that will not bode
well for Ted Cruz as it's a bad judgement call that he will be forced to
“The only way
we're going to ever make progress on this issue is to first deal with
illegal immigration, secure the border, win people's confidence that in a
reality this problem is under control,” Rubio said, and securing the
border was not part of the McCain/Grahm Bill at all. Marco Rubio is
vehemently against amnesty for 'illegals' and is for a type of 'Pathway
to Citizenship'...as was our beloved Ronald Reagan...because he
understands that America...aside from the felons...will not deport 22
million people which both Trump and Cruz call for...nor will we be
breaking up families or sending so-called 'anchor babies' back to the
countries of their parent's birth...countries they know nothing about.
Rubio is rightfully for enforcing the laws currently on the books and
moving outward from there, but before anything else Marco Rubio is for
sealing the borders...something he has always been for.
Another touch-point of this upcoming election being pushed by the
Democrats is student debt, and to that affect Marco Rubio understands
the obstacles faced by many who want to go to college but who cannot
afford to. Having faced this obstacle himself, Rubio has proposed a
number of workable and very doable proposals aimed at reducing the cost
of college and graduate school. However, unlike Hillary's 'free-for-all'
college for everybody proposal...a proposal actually paid for with our
hard-earned taxpayer dollars...one of Rubio's proposals calls for
private investment groups to pay for tuition in exchange for a
percentage of future earnings. And while this proposal would not replace
federally subsidized student loans, it would provide students with an
alternative to not having to pay off large sums of monies borrowed to
get a quality college education...debt that takes years if NOT decades
to pay off.
And tied directly into foreign policy is national security for in
today's world where ISIS continues to run amok, what happens 'over
there' affects what happens here in America. And Marco Rubio has proven
himself to be a true champion of 'We the People' in ways that help
protect the 'health, safety, and welfare' of we American citizens, and
in doing so exhibits the strength needed for presidential leadership.
Case in point...you simply cannot cutback intelligence gathering
programs nor can you side with Harry Reid and the Democrats whose
policies counter American security issues, and that is exactly what Ted
Cruz did when he surprised many by voting in favor of the 'USA Freedom
Act'...the bi-partisan reform version of the 'Patriot Act...the very act
that George W. Bush put in place after 9/11 that, to-date, has for the
most part kept us safe at home.
And in saying that the bill weakened "U.S. national security by
outlawing the very programs our intelligence community and the FBI have
used to protect us time and time again," Rubio rightfully voted against
the 'USA Freedom Act' because it failed to both follow through with the
'Patriot Act' and preserve existing National Security Agency
(NSA) surveillance authorities that many Democrats and libertarian-leaning
Republicans...like Rand Paul...erroneously believe are too
So one has to wonder why Ted Cruz, a man who holds a centrist
position on surveillance, would restrict intelligence gathering by
supporting a bill that Obama wanted...a 'red flag' if there ever was
one. And while Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio do share similar views and
positions on certain issues such as the farce known as Climate Change,
Common Core, and ObamaCare, it's now obvious that they do part ways when
it comes to the all-important foreign policy and national security
issues...issues critical to the 'health, safety, and welfare' of 'We the
And with the 2016 election being about numbers...'specific'
numbers...the only candidate who can pull in those needed 'specific'
numbers is Marco Rubio and here's why...in the general election no
candidate can win unless they carry the Hispanic vote...and in that vein
they must be able to converse with this important segment of the voting
block in their own language. In fact, Latino Decisions, specialists in
Latino public opinion research, said that if the 2016 white vote is 59%,
Republicans would need between 40% to 47% of the Hispanic vote to reach
a majority...and a man NOT fluent in Spanish would not likely reach
that critical must-get number. Remember, in 2012, Mitt Romney who did
NOT speak Spanish only won about 27% of the Hispanic vote, but in 2004,
George W. Bush who did speak Spanish won over 44% of the Hispanic vote.
And the study also found that Republicans still need between 40% to 47%
to win those majorities in the key states of Colorado, Florida, New
Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia...and Ted Cruz is simply not fluent
And lets not forget that someone who is
fluent in Spanish stands a much better chance of bringing the Hispanic
vote permanently over to the Republican party, because in Marco Rubio
they see someone who understands their culture and their American dream.
But the bottom lines remains that Marco Rubio...young, dynamic,
focused, and ever positive...is the best candidate to represent
America's future as we move ever forward into 'A New American Century'.
