IT'S MARCO TO THE RESCUE!


By Evelio Perez
  The wait is over folks, today Florida Senator Marco Rubio has announced in Miami's Freedom Tower (Miami Cuban's Ellis Island), his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States.
Rubio, a Tea Party favorite and Republican rising star was one of Governor Mitt Romney's final choices to be his vice-presidential running-mate in the 2012 election, although not chosen, he was seen by many, including the great Maharishi himself, Rush Limbaugh as one who has what it takes to one day become President of the United States.
 Not since Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan have we had such a great public speaker and communicator in the likes of Senator Rubio.
 Like it or not, young and dynamic leadership with new ideas is what is going to take to defeat the massive and powerful Clinton Political machine. So strap yourselves in folks, it's going to be a doozy.........................

Marco Rubio (From Wikipedia)
Here's Marco with his parents

 Marco Antonio Rubio was born on May 28, 1971 in Miami, Florida, the second son and third child of Mario Rubio and Oria Garcia. His parents were Cubans who had immigrated to the United States in 1956 and were later naturalized as U.S. citizens in 1975.   

 Rubio's family was Roman Catholic, but from age 8 to age 11, he and his family attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while they lived in Las Vegas. He received his first communion as a Catholic in 1984, before moving back to Miami with his family a year later. He was confirmed and married in the Catholic Church. 
Rubio attended South Miami Senior High School and graduated in 1989. He then attended Tarkio College for one year on a football scholarship from 1989 to 1990, before enrolling at Santa Fe Community College (now Santa Fe College). He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Florida in 1993, and his J.D. degree cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1996. While studying law, he interned for U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

 After having served as a City Commissioner for West Miami, Rubio was elected to the Florida House of Representatives for the 111th district in a special election on January 25, 2000. He won each of his re-election bids. In November 2006, he was elected Speaker of the Florida House for the 2007–09 term.

   
 On May 5, 2009, Rubio announced on his website that he planned to run for the United States Senate in 2010 for the Republican seat being vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez, who had resigned and been replaced by George LeMieux. Prior to the announcement, he had been meeting with fundraisers and supporters throughout the state. Initially trailing by double-digits against the incumbent Governor of his own party, Charlie Crist, Rubio eventually surpassed Crist in polling for the Republican nomination.
On April 28, 2010, Crist announced he would be running as an independent, effectively ceding the Republican nomination to Rubio. Several of Crist's top fundraisers, as well as Republican leadership, refused to support Crist after Rubio won the Republican nomination for the Senate.
 On November 2, 2010, Marco Rubio won the general election with 48.9 percent of the vote to Crist's 29.7 and Democrat Kendrick Meek's 20.1.

 Rubio married Jeanette Dousdebes, a former bank teller and Miami Dolphins cheerleader, in 1997. She is of Colombian descent, and together they have four children named Amanda, Daniella, Anthony, and Dominic.
Rubio and his family live in West Miami, Florida.
Rubio attends Catholic Mass as well as a Southern Baptist church in West Kendall, Florida.

 Folks, there is no doubt in my mind that we have reached the final and critical stages for not only saving this once great country, but humanity itself from the many apocalyptic enemies that are beginning to alter the outlook and security of this country.  
 We are going to have many good choices in the Republican field with different ideas of how to lead this country....... but in my book Senator Rubio stands out as the one determined, capable, and descent man ready to to undertake this enormous task of rebuilding this crumbling and bleeding shell of a once proud republic.

HIDE THE CHILDREN, IT'S A LIBERAL!

By Evelio Perez
 OK everybody, let's see a show of hands and raise them if you can identify a Liberal within the first minute of any conversation.  
I like to think that I can smell a Liberal a mile away, and most of the time I wouldn't be too far from the truth. 

 We all know the type, the snob in the office, the relative who hogs the conversation, the uppity elite college boy, the all caring goody too shoe, the anti-establishment leach, the intellectual, the Pacifist, the pro-abortion atheist, the big mouth know it all, the hipster, the environmentalist and don't forget the always proud "friggin" Socialist........... You see, they are never wrong and they know EVERYTHING! 


 In order to advance their ideology, they must find and identify an unsuspecting and unprepared subject. The good liberal will search you out and likely identify you as a slimy Conservative scumbag. This of course almost always surrounded by a crowd of friendly Liberals ready to give each other a helping hand. So prepare for the disgusting Liberal onslaught!  Hint........ Get out if you can, you don't stand a chance!

 They will always gear their convoluted talking point with their sole intention to get you involved in their one sided discussion, you of course will be the target.  

 One by one, this group of brave Liberals will begin their attack, like vicious little vultures they will begin their avalanche of questions. They will ask and answer their own questions in loud and derisive tones. Every time you try to answer their questions, they will angrily cut you off with personal slurs and insults. 

 You see, the lib's only way to win any argument is to not let you get your point across, of course If you can't get your point across, you will always lose the argument........... and that, is how they plan to defeat you. 
              This is who they are Folks.

 It gets worse my fellow Conservatives, many times you will be branded with a hurtful name meant to demoralize and demean you. They will use phrases like.... Fanatic, War Monger, Nazi (that's a good one), Right Wing nut job, Fascist pig, and don't forget the more popular "complete moron." 

 They will immediately begin to tell you in their "holier than thou" attitude that you are a total idiot who does not deserve to be in the same room that they are in. They are of course superior than you in every way.

 They will always butt in and interrupt your private conversations with their always correct answers...... and they will never have a problem letting you know how wrong you are.

They will always challenge you when they are many but will mysteriously stay silent and disappear when they are alone. 
                             Why is that?

 They can and will never admit when they are wrong because that would in all likeliness expose their whole argument.


 I found that one of the best ways to deal with these people is to sarcastically agree with everything they tell you, as ludicrous as it may sound.

 They will tell you to stop bringing up Benghazi, it's not Obama's fault!!! 

Liberal Logic    
 For example, your answer could be..... You are so right, President Obama had a campaign stop in Utah the next day to worry about, what's four American lives when more important matters are in the agenda. In other words, like Hillary Clinton would famously say "What difference does it make?" 
Do they really know how stupid that makes them look?

 They will also tell you that we are always unjustly picking on President Obama because he is a black man. The immediate response to that ridiculous statement is to want to hurt these imbeciles. But...... we must be civil, try to control your anger if you feel you must slug the Lib....... But remember, we are not like them, we are simply better than that! 


 The main reason we disagree with their Socialist Messiah and his far-left comrades is not only because he is a complete knucklehead and an incompetent president but because of his liberal policies that are crippling our nation. It's not because he is black!
                We are not racists!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 We could proudly blurt out the names of many prominent and successful Black Conservatives like Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Herman Cain, Dr. Ben Carson, Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Jennifer Carroll, Arthur Davis, Tim Scott, Alan Keyes, Ken Blackwell, Walter E. Williams, Mia Love, and Lynn Swann to name a few...... But again, all of it will go in one ear and out the other, it just doesn't matter. 

 You see, In their ignorance and love for their ideological hero, their perception of reality is totally in denial. They will tell you with a straight face that "President Barack Hussein Obama can do no wrong, he has never failed or lied to us, NEVER! So don't ever dare say anything bad against this great man!" 
                         Yeah right!!!!!

 We don't like Obama because he is black, we dislike the president and his cronies because he does not know what he is doing. To top that, his liberal policies are slowly destroying the fiber of what made this once great country successful. 


 Right off the top of my head, I can rattle off a long list of major mistakes the president and his liberal administration has made ........ like the Obama care nightmare, The Ukraine debacle, trusting Putin's Russia, Libya, Syria, alienating our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, aiding The Muslim Brotherhood take power in Egypt, Fast and Furious, the billion dollar vacations, Solyndra, doing nothing on The Keystone Pipeline, the war on our right to bear arms, the promises of openness in his administration, The 18 TRILLION Dollar national debt, the millions of lost jobs, the U.S. credit downgradeObama's response to the gulf oil spill, Benghazi, and now incredibly, this man is breaking American law and is actually dealing with Terrorists! 
That does not mean that he is doing a bad job............ Just ask Liberal Queen Hillary Clinton, she'll tell you that "it's a vast Right-Wing conspiracy!" 


Knowing I am right 100% of the time dealing with these people frustrates the heck out of me every time I hear some of these ignoramuses make complete fools of themselves. The more you try to be civil and explain yourself, the more erratic they become. You might as well mumble whatever nonsense you want, for they will undoubtedly ignore every single word you say.

 Let's not beat around the bush folks, these people have gladly become the useful idiots to these liberal thugs and tragically, history is repeating itself once again.

 Just like the fanatics that gave rise to Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and Mao Tse-Tung. These liberal zombies and their blind allegiance to their lord and master Barack Hussein Obama and his conspirators have us headed in the same direction. They have this incredible love for their liberal ideals that they have become a problematic danger to the health and future of this once great country.

 Well, there you have it my friends, my definition of who and what a Liberal is. 
Maybe it hasn't gotten this bad in your neighborhood just yet........ But please, as a favor to your children and this once great country, Please!!!!! Just be on the lookout O.K.?  It is America were trying to save, isn't it?

MY 41 YEARS AS A LONGSHOREMAN IN THE ILA

BY EVELIO PEREZ
Me and my Dad
    One unsuspecting and normal day in March of 1972 my Father, Evelio Perez Sr. (RIP), who had been working in the Port of Miami for some time, along with my twin Brother, Eddie Perez (RIP) who started the year before, tells me that there is an opening in the docks for one worker. I was to report at 5:30 am to the union hall in the port and hopefully work as a Checker for The I.L.A. (International Longshoremen's Association) early next morning.

    My immediate reaction was to jump off my chair and yell in total euphoria, just knowing that the starting hourly wage was $3.15 an hour was enough to get me very exited. That was a huge amount of money those days when you could get gasoline for 20 cents a gallon! Heck, my folks even bought a house in the Gables for 15 thousand dollars! 
Me and my twin 
brother Eddie (RIP) 

    I remember showing up in my first day at the I.L.A. Local 1922 Union Hall around 5:30 am sitting in a big room full of people wearing their hard-hats. All of them were waiting for their name to be called. As the room started to empty out, my name was finally called by this big intimidating burly man named Bill Boyle. He says with his heavy, raspy voice, "Hey kid, you're Bebo's (My Dad's nickname) son right?" Of course I stumbled and babbled around just to say the words yes sir. Then he says "go to CCT Shed C and start at 8:00 am............ Good Luck"

      Yes, on my very first day I was sent to one of the busiest companies in The Port of Miami as a shipping clerk to work at receiving and delivering cargo in this huge and busy warehouse.
  My first thoughts when I got there (before work started) was that there was no way that I could last in this crazy place, it was a complete mad house! There were drivers everywhere and they all wanted their cargo. I was stunned and overwhelmed. 
Little did I know that as soon as 8:00 am (starting time) came around, the Checkers would quickly have everything running smoothly and under full control.

40 Years of service award
   My Dad (RIP) also had made many friends in the Local that helped me get through those first couple of weeks, including a very nice older gentleman named (same as my Dad and I) Evelio Bosh. After introducing himself, Mr. Bosh said to me, "don't worry about a thing kid, just stick with me, and we'll get through this day together." 
  On that first day, from 8 am all the way to quitting time at 5 pm, Mr. Bosh was taking care of me like he was my own father. He showed me the correct way to receive and deliver cargo, he would also explain that any one little error could lead to thousands of dollars in loses to the customer.  


With President Jerry Becerra
   It was a very busy day, the work was tiring, relentless and never ending, but the professionalism and experience of the Checkers always kept up with the busy work load in an impressive and orderly fashion. There is no doubt in my mind that if not for the help of Mr. Bosh and the rest of the Checkers, I would not have survived that hectic first day. 
Here's Butch having some
 nice words to tell me.......
 I remember my Dad would everyday give me the drill, "always be neat, always bring your tape measure, clipboard, pens, pencils and your hardhat." He would also tell me, "it's always better to write more information on the interchange than less, you never know if that extra bit of information would be useful and important in the future."
My father was not only my best friend, he was my mentor. He was the most honest and kindest man I've ever known and there was no way that I was going to let him down.

Monument for 
the fallen
  The port is not an easy place to work in, there are dangers all around where you could easily be hurt badly or even get killed (as many have) in a split second if you let your guard down. That is why there is no substitution for experience and doing the job the correct and safe way. That one mistake could either cost thousands of dollars or your your precious life.......That is the life of an I.L.A. dockworker. 

 The hours are always unpredictable, you are on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week............ that was part of the deal. It could be a regular starting time of 8 am or ship times that could start close to midnight. There was a lot of times that the hours turned into days in which turned into a very descent paycheck. But let me be clear, there is no substitute for having the right amount of training and skills to efficiently work in the port.  


With V.P. Luis Gonzalez
  There are many reasons why I love The ILA, one being the relations you have with fellow workers. From day one there was always the feeling that all my co-workers were watching my back as I in turn watched theirs. We all yearned for the same things in life, a good home, good wage, good health care and the ability to provide our families a good and healthy environment to grow as good citizens of this great country.

With friend and boss,
 Guy Colicelli
   You never knew what you were going to do or where you were going to work. We expected anything and everything. We could either stuff or strip containers, reefers, rail cars, or receive and deliver cargo to the customers (truckers). We could work cargo or cruise ships, container yards, car yards, offloading or loading loose cargo, cars, heavy equipment or containers under slow stick cranes or fast gantry cranes. All of these jobs I did in South Florida ports, which included Port Everglades, The Port of Miami and even some warehouses around the airport. I was even Chief Clerk (The Boss) for 4 years. In my last few years I worked in a trailer command center in the Port of Miami (POMTOC) set up to do the work with computers and cameras.

With long time friend,
 Juan Losada
  Throughout my 41 years as a longshoreman, there have been many people that took their time and effort to be helpful and nice, like Pres. Jerry Becerra, V.P.Luis Gonzalez, Sec. Butch Vanderwyde, Walter Bretana, Luis Meurice, Bob Fiore, Tony Arrufat, Johnny Bruns, Tony Soto, Rudy Valdez, Evelio Bosh, Phil Knapp, Freddy Castillo (RIP), Irving Schwartzberg (RIP), Guy Colicelli, Juan Losada and the rest of my brothers in the local. When times were tough and believe me there were plenty, these great men were always there watching my back.
Esophageal Cancer
   In 1997 I got the unexpected and debastating news that I had esophageal cancer. I knew back then that statistics gave me and anybody that got this horrible disease a 5% chance of survival. So I basically said as much to everyone. I would tell all that would listen that I probably won't be back (I truly believed that). But true to form, my boss at that time the late Irving Schwartzberg (RIP) assured me that I was coming back and that my steady job would be there............. I did and it was.

  The operation as successful as it was, left me with one paralyzed vocal cord during the procedure (I had no voice). My stomach replaced my esophagus and literally moved close to my left lung where it was not able to expand as needed to freely breathe after a tiring day.
  The operation to remove my cancerous esophagus was experimental and the complications that arose from it required another major operation, just to save my life. But with God's grace and the many prayers from many friends and family, the cancer had not spread to other parts of my body.

Me with Vivian on our 
wedding day   
   My wife and best friend Vivian (who showed her love many times over), stayed with me in the hospital for 37 days and nights. She never went home! She sometimes didn't know if I was going to make it on certain days, but she persevered. My loving mother was also there most of the time (at one time hospitalized herself during my stay), giving Vivian much needed breaks, like bathing, lunch, dinner and short naps.


    When I finally left the hospital, I was a total mess. I was so weak that I was barely able to walk. I had to regain my strength just to walk again. I couldn't sleep (without chocking a few times a night), walk, talk or able to breathe very well on my own. It was going to be a very long and rough road ahead for me to be able to be well enough to provide for my loving family. My days as a Longshoreman and my ability to provide for my family seemed in serious doubt.


My Family
   But.................. for the three straight months that I was out, my brothers in the Union passed the hat and collected enough money that actually took care of all of my bills, including the mortgage. That money from my brothers of the Local was all I needed to strive to work harder and get better, it was heaven sent!

  Well, to make the story short, I rehabilitated myself enough to walk but was having a tough time adjusting to my new and dilapidated body............... I would never be the same. The smell of car fumes alone was having a effect on my ability to breathe and my lack of sleep because of my condition was taking a huge toll on my health and my family.


My work station
    When I did return, knowing my condition, President Jerry Becerra and my bosses, Irving Swartzberg (RIP) and Guy Colicelli did everything to make my return possible, permanent and successful.
 From day one after my return, they bent over backwards and allowed me to work inside, away from the damaging dust and diesel fumes out on the field. I worked the computers in a container yard (POMTOC) receiving and delivering containers, dealing with drivers just as I had on my first day of work 41 years ago until my final day of my retirement.
Getting my watch! 
  
   My journey began with me wanting to make good money, have good insurance and the ability to have all the comforts I needed. But I also ended up with an undying allegiance and respect that I have grown to have for this great Union and the awesome band of brothers that I've grown to love.

Thanks to Danny and 
Michelle for this awesome
 and yummy cake!!!!!! 
    So on behalf of my father, Evelio Perez (RIP) 30 years in the Local, my twin brother Eduardo (Eddie) Perez (RIP) 30 years (who should have retired with me) in the Local, and myself, 41 years in the Local, I want to thank God, my loving family and all of my brothers in the I.L.A. for everything.
 I am a better person having known you all.

MAY GOD BLESS THE I.L.A.

BEWARE OF THE LATINO TROJAN HORSE

By Evelio Perez
 As a Cuban-American and a Hispanic I write this article with shame and disgust over the illegal immigration culture war presently dividing and infesting this great nation. 

 Have we Hispanics lost our mind? How in God's good name can we justify imposing our will and culture on our gracious hosts? Aren't we supposed to learn English and assimilate ourselves with the American way of life?

 This current fiasco has nothing to do with bigotry and has everything to do with overrunning this country with failed people from failed countries and changing the political dynamics forever, some of these troublemakers are even trying to retake lost territory for Mexico! How do I know? They are telling us !

 The United States government and it's people have bent backwards to be reasonable and humane with the illegal immigrants only to be called fascists and racists in their own country......... (This takes huge COJONES) Our way of life is being threatened and it is now time to take our country back......ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !


 The United States government's duty to all of it's citizens is to keep them safe from harm within the sovereign borders of this great nation. The moment that defending ourselves becomes politically incorrect is the moment that we have lost the battle for preserving any reasonable chance to keep our families safe from all illegal invaders, including the people that want to do us harm. We must completely close the borders and enforce the laws of the land, our survival depends on it.

 I am embarrassed and ashamed of fellow (LATINOS) Hispanics that choose anarchy over the rule of law and this is not the first time. Their willful disregard of American laws and lives is displayed daily in most major cities with killer street gangs running amok selling drugs and terrorizing American neighborhoods. The anti-gringo fervor is in an all time high and if we don't put a stop to all of this madness right now, we will all be responsible for for the carnage that will follow.


 As Cuban refugees we have also felt the wrath of our Hispanic Camaradas (Comrades), we were the minority within the Hispanic minority and we were looked down on for because we disliked Fidel Castro! 

 Do you know why they like Castro and El Che so much
folks? Because they stood up to the evil gringos, that's why. They could not understand why we would hate such a great hero of the common people, and because of that we became the ignorant nuisance and embarrassment of the Hispanic community. We were ridiculed for choosing hard work over welfare and blasted for siding with conservative values that mostly sided with the Republican Party for all these years.

 The day that I became a citizen of this country, I swore an oath that I would support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America. This pledge of allegiance was made with my full consent and total understanding of what all of this meant including my total commitment for the rule of law.

 I do see pockets of decent Hispanics breaking out of the nanny state of mind that has kept many of them from reaching the American dream. It is my hope that they take up the mantle and lead the fight of standing up for America when America needs us the most, because God knows that America stood up for us.................

ARE HONOR & INTEGRITY LOST FOREVER ?

By Evelio Perez
               
 Have Honor and Integrity become a relic of the past? Have we become so morally corrupted that we have so drastically lowered our standards in the new world of politically correct and misguided modernism?
  The other day, I was having dinner with my wife and kids and overheard some young people (in their teens) in the next booth seriously disrespecting the elderly couple dining with them, specifically this older gentleman. Out loud, these young bullies would mock the older couple by saying mean things like "all this old fart ever does is talk about Honor and Integrity. "They continued to make fun and insult this seemingly good older man and his wife simply because they did not understand what these magnificent words meant.

 I thought about it long and hard and was amazed at how people today perceive those two very important traits of a man's character and how the new perspective of these values and the new generation's idea of modernism are cheapening the meaning of these very important words.

 Many people that live by those words today are ridiculed and ostracized simply for having the courage to defend these precious conservative values. We as a center-right country need to re-focus and start teaching our children the importance of why these words are so crucial in how you lead your life.

 You read about the great men and women throughout our history that knew what those words meant, they said what they meant and meant what they said.

 Many stood for what was right, even if it meant certain death. These are the heroes that have given their blood, sweat and tears and even their lives to give us what we have today, the greatest country in the history of civilization and that........... is what makes these people special.

  A man with Honor has the ability to be counted on to do the right thing every time, regardless of the situation. This is crucial in how you are measured and trusted by your family and friends.


 Integrity has to do with always doing the right thing, even if the outcome is not in your interest.


 There are some things that great people strive to achieve as their goal in life, be true to your God, friends and family, honor your commitments and defend what is right regardless of the consequences. If you give your all in the pursuit of defending what is morally right, you will forever be known as an honorable person who made a difference in many people's lives. That is something that no one can ever take away from you............. not now, not ever.

WHY I FEAR FOR AMERICA, A CUBAN-AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE

By Evelio Perez
 Socialism is crawling it's way into our country and our way of life is being threatened. 
Every day our voices are being slowly silenced, our constitution is being attacked and our moral beliefs are being tossed aside for the new ways of the new society. 
Some may ask, who does this guy think he is?  
What makes this guy such an expert on Socialism?
"Che"Guevara & Fidel Castro 
  
 I was born in Habana, Cuba in October of 1952. We lived in a two bedroom apartment alongside my twin brother, mother and father in Old Habana just a couple of blocks from "El Malecon" (The famous sea wall along the outskirts of the city).


 José Rodríguez executed 
 We were considered a normal middle class family with modest means. We had a very close family unit with lots of good friends with plenty of good times, everything was great until....................

     A very charismatic and impressive young man appeared on the scene, this Messiah, this GREAT leader, THE ONE, this person who offered Hope and Change (Hmmmm). He who appeared to have all the answers to every question ever asked and more.

 So on Jan.1,1959, this bearded leader and his triumphant liberators paraded into the streets of Habana lifting the hopes of many who believed in this seemingly great man.

A real Kangaroo Court
 That was a very bloody year, the kangaroo courts were continuous, brutal and without any mercy, they were also on television where every day you could see person after person appear in this farce also called a court of law.  
 I will never forget it as the condemned were dragged into the courts with the crowds  drooling with hate and screaming at the top of their lungs in complete and delirious devilish harmony the words "PAREDON! PAREDON! PAREDON! PAREDON!" (firing squad) begging for blood, dooming many before they had any chance to defend themselves........  of course most of them were found guilty and shot minutes later.

Raul Castro personally takes
 part in executions
 Fidel Castro then proceeded to take all of the people's weapons in the pretense that he would take care of all of us, he told us that only bad people had arms of death............. and yes, he took all of our fire-arms and left us defenseless       (You ever wonder why Castro has lasted so long?)

 I still remember the talks our parents had with us about not talking to ANYONE, for we could innocently tell of our parents disgust with the dammed Revolution. The fear of being dragged in those trials was enough of a torture for a 8 year old little boy. 


Fidel Castro questioning a Cuban
 farmer before his execution
 Eventually we were pulled out of school because the communist indoctrinations started. All teachers taught and demanded that your love and loyalty always began with Fidel, El Che and the Revolution.

 Within a year in power, Castro started to take our freedoms away as he started his Socialist experiment on an unsuspecting and desperate country by nationalizing all industries in Cuba. 

 The government (Fidel) owned everything! Oh yes, even your home and your children. 

Every neighborhood had a committee headed by loyal Castro supporters known as chivatos (rats) that would inform on their neighbors if they even suspected that you were against Fidel and his Revolution.

 Our families were split apart by ideologies, some were with the Revolution and the rest of us were not. Kaos ruled our daily lives so much that we could not even trust our closest friends. However.......... this never-ending and agonizing nightmare would not last forever.


 On September 3, 1961 our Mother told my twin brother and I (to our surprise) that on that same day we were going to America to see our beloved father. (Who left a few months before to get a job and an apartment for us when we got there.)

 I remember getting on that old Pan Am twin engine propeller plane and leaving the land of my birth and half of my beloved family to never see them again.



 We got to the United states soon after and remember when my feet hit the grounds my mother telling us crying "Son, we don't have to be scared anymore, now you can say anything you want because we are free".

  I'll never forget those words as long as I live, and it is for that reason that I will continue to fight against this Socialist onslaught that is dooming our society today.

Executioner René Rodríguez Cruz 
shoots García Olayón in the
 head on Jan. 2, 1959
 It is up to us who came from Socialist dictatorships to lead the revolt against the evil that is contaminating America before it is too late. We know who these people are and how they are trying to achieve their goals.

 All immigrants from Nicaragua, Bolivia, El Salvador, Venezuela, Ecuador, and of course Cuba that have experienced the horrors of this system, have to re-double and lead the effort against this Socialist tidal wave that is destroying life as we know it. 


 We must be loud and we must be clear but most of all we must be heard. We must un-mask these pretenders and expose them for what they really are, Radical Socialists who are dead set on changing America to their idealistic Socialist utopia.
 Folks, we are in a desperate crossroad in this country's history and "We The People" are the last line of defense. 

 We must not fail to stop this blatant overthrow of our Constitutional freedoms and our precious way of life because............ the alternative is simply more of the same Cuban nightmare, how do I know?  I was there.............
