I was moved by Rubio's speech as well. I truly admire the Latino's who have really stepped up to the plate and have smashed the stereotyping that we see in Hollywood, who love to portray Hispanics/Latinos as drug dealers, gang bangers, prostitutes, or housekeepers who don't speak properly in English. The speeches were awesome and shed light that we are not a dumb and illiterate race but are quite capable of being just as successful as anyone else, if given the opportunity.
Governor Susana Martinez, in her words, “Growing up, I never imagined a girl from a border town could one day become a governor. But this is America Y, en America todo es posible.”said Martinez.
She is the first Latina governor in United States history and expected to be of key importance for aiding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney close his massive 30-point gap in support from Hispanic voters against President Obama. I also loved the fact that she knows how to use a Smith and Wesson .357 magnum, quite impressive. Those guns would knock me on my rump.
I must not forget to mention Ted Cruz, or even Brian Sandoval. These are the kind of people I want my boys to admire, and not just Latinos but any person who rose up from poverty and made something of their lives. I want more for them, than for myself. That is my prayer, for them to succeed and achieve their dreams, their goals, like those mentioned above. Because they all came from poor and impoverished backgrounds and with the support, encouragement and love of their parents were able to succeed. That's all I want and most importantly that they keep the Lord Jesus always in their hearts and to never stray from their faith in Him.
I loved when Mitt Romney said,
"President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family."
"I am running for president to help create a better future. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. An America where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads them to a good job and a bright horizon."
I liked the fact that we, as parents, will be able to choose the schools of our choice for our children. Because right now, both of my boys are being bullied and no one is doing a damn thing to stop it. I even called the school administration and got the run-around. My children deserve and need to be in schools where they can learn and become successful, independent adults. And not have to worry about bullies.
Below are some great pictures from the RNC:
There was so much that I enjoyed that it would take forever to articulate every single tidbit. But I didn't miss one speech. And one of the highlights, for myself, was seeing Scott Hamilton! Wow! I wish he would have been allowed to speak, but his presence was enough, we know where he stands politically.
Okay, what were your thoughts on the RNC?
