Arizona-based National Tequila Party Movement is issuing an action alert to encourage Independent and Democratic Latinos to vote in the numerous state open primary races across the country.

National Tequila Party urges Latina/os to vote for “anyone but Romney” as he embraces xenophobia more than any other Presidential candidate when he decided to align himself with Kris Kobach who works for the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI). IRLI is the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), recently listed as a nativist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.  FAIR is part of the John Tanton network.  A retired Michigan ophthalmologist, Tanton has white nationalist beliefs and has written that to maintain American culture, “a European-American majority” is required.

Thus, let’s take our real shot for change and vote for “anyone but Romney” in the open primary states.

Beginning by voting in the next Open Primary Election next Saturday, on January 21, 2012 in South Carolina.

The Delegates numbers per state of the Open Republican Primary States are as follows:
Alabama (50)
Arizona (Semi-closed, with primaries open only to unaffiliated or unrepresented voters, except for the Libertarian primary) (57) Arkansas (36)
Georgia (75)
Hawaii (Open primary for state, local, and congressional races; caucus system for presidential races) (20)
Idaho (32)
Indiana (46)
Massachusetts (All races’ primaries open for “un-enrolled”/unaffiliated voters only) (41)
Michigan (59)
Mississippi (37)
Missouri (53)
South Carolina (50)
Tennessee (58)
Texas (152)
Vermont (17)
Virginia (49)
Wisconsin (42)

Total delegates for our taking in these Open Republican Primaries are a total 874 and it takes 1,212 needed to win.

This means we shall influence who is the 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate.
