A line from a movie that I remember is: "Don't let the past dictate who you are but let it become part of who you become." In their heart Cuban-Americans are true Americans that understand the concept of freedom. As an immigrant group, as we all were at one time, they embraced the ideal of America more than they embraced the geography of America. What America stands for is not a piece of property but an ideal. That is where some get lost. You can carry America in your head because America is about a belief system that is embodied in the words written on a handful of pages over 200 years ago. The Cuban immigrants did not come here for a paycheck. They came here because of principles.

First become fluent in English, complete college, have a great career, become a US Senator and someday be President? They have no such desire or concern. I see Marco Rubio, not as a Cuban American, but as an American who will continue to do great things for his country. I see the fire that burns in Marco when he speaks. Yes, I would vote for Marco for President of the US! He is a wonderful role model for every child in this country!

As we go to press polls show America’s largest swing state in a dead head between Romney and Obama. Florida has 29 electoral votes and the third largest “Hispanic” population in America. Normally this means a cakewalk for any Democrat.

But whoops! Turns out that about a third of these Florida Hispanics (Cuban-Americans) are actually so—as in Americans whose ancestors hail almost exclusively from Europe’s Iberian Peninsula known as Hispania by the Romans. So as a broken clock is right twice a day, the term “Hispanic” as used by the mainstream media can actually be correct about 1/1000 of...
