I'd prefer to win on ideas, but I'll take a victory where I can get it.

people keep thinking this, but then all you hear (from many posters here) is how the new "transplants" are bringing their politics with them.

I hear it on FR from people in texas, north carolina, colorado, virginia, new hampshire, the dakotas and montant, etc. So tell me, which states are getting more conservative?

No GOP advantage until after the next census in 2010...Maybe in 2012?

I think someone has their trends off.

I remember someone giving a speech summarizing their sociological research on C-span, where they said that conservatives settle and then stay whereas liberals will move constantly. Thus those that move at retirement will overwhelmingly be liberals.

Correction, the population boost thanks to more amnesty for illegal immigrants coming soon in the U.S. will benefit leftist politics forever! Good-bye U.S.A., and good-bye conservatism very soon! Grrr!

...Nevada, Arizona. Why is it that the disease of liberalism spreads so quickly?

Abortion is an idea that affects both.

Ongoing population shifts from the North to the Sun Belt states will benefit Republicans more than Democrats in future House races and could enlarge the Republican Party's electoral count in presidential elections, political analysts say.

Well, let's hope, because otherwise the Democrats will have the sheeple so used to the socialized programs that we won't see a Republican majority for many decades.

And, of course, we need to hope this Democrat majority doesn't involve itself with "redistricting" in clever ways to overcome some of this population shift.

(That is, I'm adding NV and AZ to your list. The Dems see these as swing states by 2008.)

"I'd prefer to win on ideas, but I'll take a victory where I can get it."



Guess what, we *are* winning on ideas. People are leaving Democrat states and moving to Republican states.

None of that will happen when there is an amnesty for the "illegal" aliens in this country. By my estimate all the numbers thrown around are being low balled on purpose so as not to alarm anyone. If as the government has stated over the last 20 years 10,000 illegals cross the border on a daily basis after 20 years that comes closer to 65 million, if doesn't take an idiot to do the math. The fact of the matter is, that the government has absolutely no clue how many illegal aliens are in the country.

Why does that matter you ask? Because if amnesty passes this congress as I suspect it will and is signed by a willing accomplice in the white house we will have a huge population shift to the blue states. That will mean redistricting as a result of the 2010 census. It will also mean a major shift in the electoral college and a lock on the white house and legislatures by the democrats.

That is only the tip of the iceberg. Most Latins hold vastly radical ideas far to the left of most "progressive" democrats. The US will shift far to the left as is happening in the rest of Latin America. Most Latin Americans are highly class conscious and identify themselves as the have nots, they have nothing but resentment for the wealthy and productive sector and will vote in any government that promises redistribution of wealth.

How do I know these things? Because I came from there (yes I'm an immigrant, a legal one), I speak the language and I converse with my fellow hispanics the neighborhood where I live which has an abundance of Mexicans, Salvadoreans and Ecuadorians. This country is on the verge of radical change and that threat is closer and more immediate than some can imagine.

"We don't really know the demographics that are driving the in-and-out migration in these states," said political analyst Rhodes Cook. "Some of them could be more affluent white conservatives, but they might be Hispanics who tend to vote more Democratic."

Bend over and kiss our GOP goodbye..

Truly terrifying. I guess their vaunted Catholicism is not really so. I do not understand how my fellow Catholics can be so left.

The Democrats have aborted many of their potential base and commit most of the vote fraud to make up the difference.

Atleast now we should focus on electing GOP'ers who actually HAVE ideas.
