When I was serving as US Ambassador in Malta, my driver and friend asked "how is it Ambassador that a rich country like yours leaves the care of the sick unaddressed?" I had no real answer to give in a country with universal care being delivered in state of the art facilities.
In 2016 motivating Latinos to vote will be a major initiative of every political campaign. Finding the right issues is always the key to turning out voters.
