Everyday citizens often live unaware of their government’s inner workings. The knowing of political espionage is often too heavy of a subject to be inducted in conversation. True, prima facie, modest twists and turns of information may not be considered substantial, but this inconsideration leaves much to be uncontrolled. It is easy for political leaders to become power crazed, to not realize the massive implications that come of their actions. Only after all is said and done do the people actually realize their government is an opaque mask of deception. The Watergate Scandal substantially impacted Americans’ trust in their government.
Research Question: The primary research question driving the article by Preston & Cushing inquires what the likely impact will be of the new executive order from Obama.

This is in complete contrast however, to the mindset of some observers who believed that Latinos would not come out in the numbers they did because of racial bias and because of the fact that Obama received much less support amongst Latinos in the democratic primaries when faced against Hilary Clinton (Hero & Preuhs, p.3). Many people mistakenly thought this to be so because

Voters for the Democratic are seen as urban countries, with large minority population, older and native Texans (Ginsbert et al, 2013). Teachers, business men and women, and citizens with higher educations are more likely to vote depending on who is running and their platforms. Hispanics and African-American are seen voting more for the Democratic candidates and whites voting for the Republican candidates (Ginsbert et al, 2013).

He has shown regardless of being an immigrant, coming to America with virtually nothing, you can live the American dream and make a difference in this country. “President George W.

Americans have feel high levels or insecurity when it comes to the Latino populations and Gonzalez argues that it is due to the lack of knowledge in addition to the growing anti-immigrant rhetoric that is being created by the Republican party. The transformation of the United States is incredibly massive and by 2050 1 out of 3 will be of Latin American descent and if these numbers continue to grow by 2100 half of the population will be Latino. Juan Gonzales expresses that the central theme of his book is the huge Latino presence in the United States and the role of the United States in Latin America, therefore understanding the Latino presence in the American nation is completely due to the harvest of empire that the United States has create, which is a result of over a century of domination.

In the article written by Kate Linthicum, it is estimated that 40 million Latinos will be eligible to vote by 2030 and in 2014, 25 million Latinos were eligible to vote. In the previous 2012 Presidential elections, the massive amount of Latinos had a significant importance in the election. Both the Democratic and Republican political party aimed to receive the support of the Latino voters.
