Latino leaders in Nevada and around the country are floating the idea of breaking traditional ties with the Democratic Party and creating a grass-roots independent movement tentatively called the Tequila Party. According to Delen Goldberg at the Las Vegas Sun, the leaders want to pressure the Democratic Party to deliver on Latinos' priorities much in the same way the tea party has done with the GOP over the past few years.
Robert de Posada, the former GOP operative behind this fall's controversial "Don't Vote" ads aimed at Latinos in Nevada and California, tells The Lookout that he has heard "rumblings" of this movement among national Latino leaders.
"The Tequila Party is a great concept to basically say, 'You know what? This blind support for you is coming to an end,'" De Posada says. "If you are perceived as someone who will never vote for a Republican, then you're screwed," because Democrats will take you for granted, he says.
I am fine with just about any way to take votes away from the democrats

Re: Inspired by tea party success, Latinos float ‘Tequila Party’ grass-roots movement
College kids across the country will like this party. St. Patricks day used to be the drinking day now with the help of the tequila companies the drinking day is Cinco de Mayo ... the college kids love that day ... tequila, youth and Cinco de Mayo are a trifecta.
