    And Florida was arguably the most obtainable of the swing states.

    I doubt it will be now.

    PS. Ryan also wants to end the Cuban embargo. This might be news to spread in south Florida.

    You're not being "oppressed" when another group gains rights you've always enjoyed.

    •  What % of the FL vote is Cuban? (0+ / 0-)

      Many seem to equate "Cuban" with "Hispanic" or "Latino".

      It's my impression that the Hispanic population across the country does not identify with "Cubans" as fellow Hispanics and views them more as a privileged 1% who are automatically welcomed as newcomers.

      For what it's worth, I do agree with Ryan (didn't realize I agreed with him on anything) re lifting the embargo on Cuba.

      I personally know of several right-wingers who often take pleasure trips from FL shores to Cuba on their expensive leisure craft.  No hassle, no repercussions, no remorse.  All law-abiding, flag-pin-wearing-real-'Mercians who think every single liberal wants to destroy their Exceptional America!.
