Posted on 05/22/2005 8:13:47 AM PDT by Brian Mosely
NEW YORK, May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles Mayor-Elect Antonio Villaraigosa accomplished what Democrats dream of doing nationwide: he energized Latino voters to turn out for him at historic levels and stitched together the sort of multiracial coalition that has often eluded less-gifted politicians, Newsweek reports. In the May 30 Newsweek cover "Latino Power" (on newsstands Monday, May 23), Miami Bureau Chief Arian Campo-Flores and Chief Political Correspondent Howard Fineman assess the impact of Villaraigosa's election on national politics and the Latino vote. Though they won the Hispanic vote last November, Democrats lost ground to Republicans for the second straight presidential-election cycle. To remain viable as a party, Democrats need to win Latinos back. At stake is nothing less than control of the presidency and Congress. If the GOP maintains its current share of the Latino vote, "then the Democrats will never be the majority party again in our lifetimes," Simon Rosenberg of the New Democrat Network, tells Newsweek.

"As with the Irish, so too with Mexican-Americans, as Villaraigosa's comfortable margin of victory in the Los Angeles mayor's race attests," Rodriguez writes. "Villaraigosa, a onetime militant campus activist, fashioned his first race for the mayoralty in 2001 around a labor-left-Latino alliance. He lost. Four years later he broadened his message, built a more ideologically moderate multiethnic coalition and won by nearly 20 percentage points."

And what really kills the "pro illegal" liberal moonbats is that legal Latinos are very conservative, and primarily vote republican nowadays...
It's even scarier that the President of the United States refuses to stand up for California and the other invaded states and put a stop to the mess that's coming over the border every day and every night.
Emperor Bush has no clothes when it comes to securing the southern border and stemming the tide of illegal invaders.

In addition, they, along with his eminence, Mexican President Vicente Fox, believe they should be allowed to vote in our elections as well as Mexico's, even if they know less English than I know Greek
LULAC's apparent attempt to denigrate the meaning and value of U.S. citizenship extends to the franchise. In The 1998 LULAC Legislative Platform, the organization appears to condone, if not actually promote, the violation of this country's election laws. According to the section entitled ''Voter Registration and Citizenship'' ''LULAC actively encourages eligible Hispanics to fully participate in the democratic process and register to vote. We also encourage those who are eligible to become citizens'' (italics added). Since the law states one must be a U.S. citizen in order to be eligible to vote, the wording of this LULAC platform encourages voter fraud.
MALDEF successfully lobbied for passage of the ''motor-voter'' bill of 1993 that allows voter registration at welfare offices or when applying for a drivers' license; mandates mail-in voter registration and discourages States from verifying the applicant's eligibility or citizenship.
Evil are the Europeans you know, pure evil.
I say, damn Bush and the illegal immigration horse he rode in on, he and the RINOs in power will be our undoing.
"While I am saying this half serious and half joking, I think we are practicing la reconquista in California."
~ Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General, Feb 2002.
"I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important - a very important - part of this."
~ Ernesto Zedillo, Former President of Mexico, speaking in Chicago, July 23, 1997.
"Mexico extends beyond its borders."
~ Vicente Fox, Current President of Mexico, speaking to a gathering in Milwaukee in July of 2001
"California is going to be a Hispanic State and anyone who doesn't like it should leave. They should go back to Europe."
~ Mario Obledo, President of the Californian Coalition of Hispanic Organisations, June 1998
"Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes..." "To the gringos in the audience, I have one final message to convey, 'Up yours, baby. You've had it, from now on.' "
~ Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas.
"We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population... I love it. They are sh!tting in their pants with fear. I love it.... We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him."
~ Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas.
"Remember 187 (proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non citizens) was the last gasp of white America in California."
~ Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party in front of 400 cheering Latinos at U.C. Riverside on January 14, 1995.
"We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos... non-Latinos aren't watching, they aren't raising questions"
~ Fernando Guerra, professor, Loyola Marymount
"Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. .. Through love of having children, we are going to take over."
~ Augustin Cebeda, of the 'Brown Berets', a militant Aztlan group at a violent rally in Los Angeles on July 4, 2000.
LA's new mayor for most of his life was an extreme radical who advocated turning the Southwest into the new nation of "Aztlan," the stated goal of MEChA, of which he was a high officer for many years.
In Spanish, mecha means "fuse," as in the lit fuse of the dynamite bomb the eagle is holding in the official MEChA logo.
Ahem, let me remind you that it was a race between 2 Democrats. The GOP had NOTHING to do with all this. So, L.A. (which is 1/2 Hispanic, I think) voted in a Mexican mayor. Is that really a surprise? Newsweak talks and talks . . .
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government,
1. The act of invading; the act of encroaching upon the rights or possessions of another; encroachment; trespass.
NEWSWEAK. Hey isn't this liars who put out the "flushing the Koran" story? Their bias ranks about #10, and their credibility went down the toilet instead of the Koran.
Maybe that's because it was part of Mexico before. When it became a state they didn't force the people out. Many of the families have been there for more generations than America has been a country.
If everyone is mad as hell about illegals, then how come they keep electing pro-immigration politicians?
California has been 'multi-culturaled' to death. Los Angeles schools have to deal with over 160 different languages. Only a complete fool, or a person with a hidden agenda would praise this as 'making our nation stronger'.
A recent article stated that over 50% of Los Angeles adult men are unable to either read or write elementary English.
Our Presidents and Congress don't care that California is slipping into utter chaos. They don't care that latin Separatists gain mayoral positions or come within a hair's breath of taking the Governorship of the state.
There are millions of illegal immigrants in the state of California. They are vastly over-represented in our jails and prisons. They are ripping off the state for billions of dollars in funds each year. Our highways and infrastructure are bursting at the seems, as our population soars.
Tens of billions of dollars are extracted from our economy and sent to another nation. Of thos billions, a large portion were obtained in a black market devoid of tax exposure.
What will happen is that when the separatists have captured the highest offices in the state, they will start a legitimate sounding effort to claim California pays more taxes than it gets back from the federal government. It will be stated that California would be better off if it went it's own way. Many will sucker for that line, and California will depart.
That won't be the end of it. When California's gone, the flow outward from it will be gigantic. It surrounding states will be the next to go. Places like Texas and others which are already being flooded with foreign nationals will be next.
The dominos are in place. It's only a matter of time. I used to get worked up over it, but you know what, I've had it. If the citizens of this nation are stupid enough to let it happen, and just about everyone from the President on down are, then perhaps it is best.
A nation with leadership and citizens this stupid, shouldn't control it's own destiny.
.........shaking head sadly.........
They are coming to America, they are extending Mexico and all that it is.
You are exactly right.
But there is one phrase that should wake up the country.
55 ELECTORAL VOTES.
The mud slide has begun. Those in PRK will find sooner rather than later that PRK may be a state of the US, but it will not function as one. It will only serve to suck money from the rest of the US as they quickly get their Atzlan.
