I learned early on that we need to talk to the right people and in many different levels to get to the truth. It is hard to get the tactical goals of a company if you talk to the janitor or even to the regional manager in another country of that company.
Pinoy in US just needs to observe the people that go to the Republicans and Democrats. Just because a lot of Pinoys still have the Uncle Tom or inferiority complex and many are married to whites does not mean they are part of the White party. Just like the Professional Golf Associations (PGA) inclusion of women have to be broken by no less than Condy Rice. Imagine that. Here the White tent has not yet been open fully to all. All they have to do is attend the events open to them and see where they are seated if they get an invite. One state to watch for is Nevada a swing state where Pinoys may be the deciding for the state electoral vote if they decided to vote.
Right now polls of Pinoys are available from your friends here in US. Check it out where Pinoys stand in this swing state. Other states are Florida and Virginia where Pinoys are trending for hope. Yes they wanted to get out of the rut as you called it!!! Did you know that when unemployment rate was 35% for minorities it was not an issue but now it is an issue when it affects the Whites because it is at 8%. Pinoys when out of jobs are helped by fellow Pinoys or by family. You don’t hear news that they are shooting the general public because they are frustrated.
When Pinoys come here to US the only job earners are the couple that petitioned them. With Pinoy communities’ help they eventually get jobs but have to go to the migrants wheels of hard work and hard life. Sen. Lacson said it in TFC that when he was in a foreign land he has to do menial house chores and it is what lots of immigrants go through so, of course, they need to have HOPE and get out of the RUT.
There are less than 10 states that will decide this election. The big states of California, Washington and Texas are already in the bag for either party and are not even courted by either party. So check out the average Pinoys where they really stand in these states.
