I think this election will result in a lot of pain and dissapointment for my friernds who told me I didn't know what I was talking about . I am a refugee from Hungary , got out of there after the revolution . Unfortunately it takes at least a generation to learn the lesson so I don't hold my breath to see the full result of their bad choices .

Marie, Please keep telling your story of oppression under an out of control government. I wish our schools would invite immigrants to speak at our schools so our children would understand how belssed they have been to be born in a country where we are free to make our own decisions & we have the opportunity to succeed or fail based upon our OWN decisions & not the mandates of the government. You have a story to tell that many of us have never experienced. Keep talking.
If you want to understand why President Obama was re-elected despite a largely unsuccessful presidency and almost unprecedentedly high and continuous unemployment, just look at the Cuban-American vote.

In fact, if you want to understand America today -- specifically, why it is in decline -- just look at the Cuban-American vote.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, "The president captured 48 percent of the Cuban-American vote in Florida -- a record high for a Democrat."

Democratic presidential nominees went from 25 percent of the Cuban-American vote in 2000, to 29 percent in 2004, to 35 percent in 2008 to 48 percent on 2012.
