[OP-ED] An Irish/Colombian: The Devil you know and the Devil you don’t know

 11/02/2016 - 08:28

It’s been about two months since I left a stable government job to have the opportunity to live out my dream.  The back and forth battle in my mind that kept me up at night was, “Will I be able to keep the lifestyle I already have?” “Can I still support my family?”  

“Am I making a big mistake?”

This election season we all have witnessed the back and forth mudslinging between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. One day it’s deleted emails. The next day it’s about sexual harassment accusations. This election is its own reality TV series or a very bad Telenovela.

[OP-ED] Un irlandés/colombiano: El demonio que conoces y el que desconoces...

Han pasado casi dos meses desde que dejé un trabajo estable en el gobierno para tener la oportunidad de vivir mi sueño. La batalla de ires y venires en mi cabeza que me mantuvo despierto era “¿Seré capaz de mantener el estilo de vida que ya tengo?, ¿Podré mantener a mi familia?”

“¿Estaré cometiendo un error?”

[OP-ED] Una europea: No entendemos nada, pero no queremos a Donald Trump

Para un treintañero europeo es difícil poder seguir bien el transcurso de las elecciones presidenciales de los EEUU. No somos millennials, no estamos enganchados todo el día a Twitter o a lo que postean los bloggers más influyentes en Facebook. Algunos incluso todavía intentamos informarnos de lo que ocurre en el mundo a través de los periódicos, sea en papel o en la web. Pero en cuanto a las elecciones americanas, estamos un poco perdidos. ¿Cómo ha logrado un personaje como Donald Trump convertirse en candidato a la presidencia?

[OP-ED]: El voto latino puede derrotar a Donald Trump

 11/01/2016 - 17:52

 

Describir esta campaña presidencial como “poco convencional” es como decir que Donald Trump es “un buen muchacho”. La realidad es que el jactancioso magnate no tiene nada ni de bueno ni de muchacho,  y la campaña no es “poco convencional” sino una chocante aberración marcada por la rareza y la ironía.

We are a nation of Pakistani halal food trucks, Mexican film directors, Chinese bridal fashion designers, Italian cartoonists, African feminist icons. The term “American” is attached by hyphen to our rich ancestry, an inclusion of the Greek, the Haitian, the Colombian, the Armenian we have sowed within North America’s soil. We are the children of immigrants, or we already are the proverbial immigrants, and our future children will come into this country with a shiny first-generation birth certificate teeming with opportunity we already know they are deserving of.

[OP-ED]: Yes, Latinos Will Defeat Donald Trump

To call this presidential campaign unconventional is, well, like calling Donald Trump a nice guy. The blowhard Republican presidential nominee is the opposite of nice and the campaign is much more than unconventional:  it is an aberration. Weirdness has been the norm and ironies are plentiful.

Take, for instance, the role Latino voters have played as a result of the GOP nominee recklessly disrupting the process, making a mockery of it and turning it on its head.
