The left in full “freak-out mode” because Rubio & Cruz don’t look or sound “Hispanic”

Who told the left that Hispanics were all supposed to believe or sound the same way?

‘Populismo’ is Killing Brazil

"Latin America should know by now that "populismo" does not create prosperity. It just drives investors to other more attractive places, like Chile next door.  It also creates a bloated state, "crony capitalism" and the corruption that comes with it.
