Trump baffles talking heads -- again
Forces Latinos to choose -- Mexico or America

Pro-Trump Latinos Face Ridicule From Friends And Family
    Anaheim -- Hispanic voters in Florida, New Mexico and California have waved Mexican flags and bashed Donald Trump piñatas --- clashing with police, at times --- to protest the Republican presidential contender's hard line approach to immigration.
    Yet far from the protests, an increasingly vocal Hispanic minority is speaking out in favor of the brash billionaire. They are backing Trump even in the face of resentment and suspicion from friends and family, who are among the overwhelming majority of non-white voters opposed to the New York businessman's candidacy.
    "I'm not ashamed to vote for Trump. I'd just rather not have the conversation with my family," said Natalie Lally, a 22-year-old college student from New York City whose large extended family has Colombian roots.
    She says silence fell over her grandmother's living room when she admitted her support for Trump during a recent family gathering that included more than 30 relatives.
    "They just kind of seemed uneasy," she recalled. "And my uncle just said, 'Why?'"

A clear choice
    Donald Trump is going to give Americans --- and Americans of Latino descent --- a real choice. If you vote for him, illegal immigration will be stopped. If you vote for a Democrat, it will increase.
    If Latinos vote overwhelmingly for Democrats, it will be clear that they are voting for cultural dominance and the "Conquest of Aztlan".
    This fact will become clear as the November election draws near. As it does, some Latinos who understand what they are voting for --- American law and culture or Latino law and culture --- will decide to switch to Trump.
    On the other hand, if few make this change, it will become clear to the non-Hispanic voter that they too can either vote for Latino dominance --- or not.
    I think they will vote to keep America --- America.
    Once again Donald Trump has confused the talking heads who will never understand him --- or just how clever he really is.
    He is making the election a clear choice of alternative futures for America.
