Chavez earned many titles in his life, but "champion of immigrants" was not one of them. He was primarily a labor leader who was concerned about illegal immigrants undercutting union members, either by accepting lower wages or crossing picket lines. He never pretended to be anything else, and he resisted attempts by others to widen his agenda. When he pulled workers out of the field during a strike, the last thing he wanted was to see a crew of illegal immigrant workers take away his leverage.

He is rolling over in his grave watching illegal aliens drive down wages and the agricultural companies are laughing all the way to the bank.

Chavez never claimed or called himself " champion of immigrants ". And he was against illegal immigration only to better his cause of better wages and working conditions for the american farmworkers. The ranchers and growers refused any type of contracts at that time due to their greed and hatred of Cesar Chavez. They instead preffered to hire illegals as scabs so as to not have to pay more money or improve the working conditions of the american work force. Racism and bigotry were collectively the driving factor of their denial to provide a decent wage and health care for their workers.

Leave it to a white man to speak for Chavez. Go talk about your hero Hitler instead.

Speak for yourself pal.. I don't know a single Latino in my circles that is voting for socialism but then again I guess we live in different societies. Around here, we have good paying PRIVATE sector jobs and can still afford to buy nice things for our families and friends. We want to keep them! And those less fortunate than us? Well we do many things to give them a hand up not a hand out with other people's money! Believe your own media if you want but the numbers of the Latino vote is closer than you think!

He has my vote...and I really dislike seeing ignorant people assume Romney is going to cut their taxes...with his plan middle men will have their taxes raised in order to supplement for the rich ones...if you have money and are well off good for you, but if you're in that top 1% then your tax raises is only paper to whipe your a$$ with...you don't need money in excess like that...Obama is not a miracle worker, but I prefer having someone with integrity and hope in our office..he is our modern day Kennedy...instilling hope...sometimes we need that... I miss my Clinton days..

It would be nearly impossible for Mitt to add as many new taxes, regulations, fees and price hikes that oslama did.....

If you prefer having someone with integrity in office, then you shouldn't vote for Obama. He can't even spell the word.

I think he came into office thinking itz gunna be a little easier but with the dept that bush created for Obama it became harder for him to accomplish what he has said I think everything takes awhile he just hasn't came to it I think I rather have a black president than a white greedy one that only cares about the upper class citizens and him self just cuz Romney says all these things doesn't mean he's going to do them its really all talk to try and gain ppl vote sometimes people will say anything to be on top but when it comes to it nothing happens, Obama's been achieving things and of course it all gunna cost taxes payers but every step a president takes will always cost taxes payers I SAY OBAMA STAYS AS PRESIDENT I think its only fair everyone pays taxes upper class is just being greddy with their money and would prefer not to pay a dime so I'm pretty sure they're voting for Ryan
Everyone's equal no matter if ur poor or rich, African, Mexican, American,etc... some ppl are just immature and don't see it and think of them self like there on top of everybody just cuz of money, Obama has made history and has pushed other races and made them stronger showing everybody that anything is possible if you just try VOTE OBAMA!!!

Obama has already broken the working class and is working to dismatle the middle class. He is a Socialist paper pusher. He is not a leader except when he is surrounded by his yes men and cronies. We all saw that during the debate. He was lost' incompetent and inept.

Mrs. Obama wears the pants in the family. I have more respect for her. She probably props him up and leads him to the door.
