I have received Julian's mail Castro where it expresses me their emotion last Tuesday when he speaks in the Democratic Convention. It also urges me to involve me more. As I am not American I make it to my way. To my flame the carefulness:

"There plows it doesn't live you excuse for waiting on the sidelines--there's so much at stake for us Hispanics."

Not it is to disqualify it, to him and the collaborators of Obama, but what is Latin believes that they didn't vote them many since except some words and expressions are not very involved. We go that in the teams, of Control or electoral, they don't have many Latins inside.

His mail says:

"' This weekend: It's cheats for us to get involved.'

For Catalina Beleña Martínez

On Tuesday night, I stood before the delegates of the Democratic Convention and millions of viewers on television and spoke about the American dream as a relay race -- our families don't always cross the finish line in one generation, but each generation passes on to the next the fruits of their labor.

Today, our responsibility is to come together as a nation and ensure we pass on that work to our children, and we do that by getting involved in this campaign and re-electing Barack Obama.

I'll be helping out by taking off on a national tour, speaking with Hispanics and other Americans all across the country about the issues that really matter in their communities. But I'll also spend some time at home, in the great city of San Antonio, making sure that my friends and family are registered and ready to vote.

You can do the same thing in your community. We're holding a national weekend of action tomorrow and Sunday, and our main goal is to get as many voters registered as possible.

Check out the events in your community, and help re-elect Barack Obama.

There are no more excuses for waiting on the sidelines -- there's so much at stake for us Hispanics. We've got healthcare for 9 million Hispanics to fight for, we have to defend the progress we've made for DREAMers and pass immigration reform, and we have to keep moving our economy forward by growing from the middle class out, not from the top-down.

Voter registration is the perfect way to get involved. It's one of the most important things you can do at this stage of the campaign -- and it might be the most important way to get involved in Hispanic communities.

From Denver to Miami, Albuquerque to Raleigh, we could decide this election and re-elect President Obama for four more years of progress.

But we can only accomplish that if all of us, together, reach out and get our fellow Hispanics registered to vote."

I read it and I continue thinking that the elections are won with facts. Mr. Castro: WITH FACTS.
