You are the kind of person we are privileged to have living here.

It is a privilege to live here and I hope we can turn this around.

By the way, I went to UGA, my sister is a teacher, and so was my mom and my dad is a retired doctor. When I was in the 7th grade in a small town in Ga. in 1975, I could speak ONE word of English. I did not have any "special English" lessons. You just learn. When I graduated from HS, I was in the top 5% of my class, Nat. Honor Society, Who is Who of Amer. High School students etc. And so were most of my Cuban friends who grew up in Milledgeville, Ga. Quite interesting, we had about thirty exiled Cuban families in this small town. Our dads were MDs working at the State Hospital which was the largest Hospital in Georgia.
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.
