Texas Growing Brown Turns It Blue (Ultimate goal flipping the state)
http://politic365.com ^ | 4/20/2012 | SARA INES CALDERON

Posted on 05/17/2012 11:58:03 AM PDT by dragnet2

Ask the Texas Democratic Party and, as far as they’re concerned, there has never been a Latino party chair. This is partly due to party structure. But, it’s also the historical exclusion of Latinos from power in Texas.

Whatever the case, that’s all about to change.

One way or another, in a few short months, a Latino will be the public face of the Democratic Party in Texas. Currently, the only three candidates are Gilberto Hinojosa of Brownsville, Fidel Acevedo of Austin, and Rachel Barrios-Van Os of San Antonio. Changes have been taking place within the party in the past few years, such as the recently launched Promesa Project meant to bring Latinos into the political fold. As a result, it seems that the Democratic Party is run increasingly by, and marketing itself to, Latinos.

In June, at the party’s convention in Houston, delegates will have to choose between Latino candidates to replace current chair, Boyd Richie, who has held the position since 2005. While Latinos are pushing population growth in Texas, Latino politicians are an ever larger part of the Democratic delegation, and would-be Latino voters hold the key to power in the Lone Star State.

And last but not least, Latinos are increasingly the backbone of the Democratic party, specifically: in 2005, Ruben Hernandez became executive director; in 2009 Anthony Gutierrez became the deputy executive director; in 2006 the first Spanish speaking spokesperson was hired; and last year Rebecca Acuña was brought on to serve as the deputy political director for base outreach, as well as being the director of communications.

On the elected side, about half of the Democrats in the state house are Latinos, as are 56% of Democratic state senators in a state with 3.8 million eligible Latino voters. By 2033, Latinos will be the dominant voting age population in Texas.

In the state where Univisón’s newscast gets the highest ratings, the Democratic party is modeling itself after the booming part of the population.

“The ultimate goal is: this is the path you take to flipping the state,” said Gutierrez, in reference to Latino voters. “[But] You can’t have a plan where you go to try to contact Latinos two months before election day. This has to be constant and ongoing, something we are constantly communicating to Latinos — especially young Latinos. They are going to be the future of the party, we have to figure out how to bring them in.”

Part of this strategy is the aforementioned Promesa Project, which is modeled after The Great Schlep, Sarah Silverman’s Jewish outreach efforts in Florida during the 2008 presidential election. The party is training Latino volunteers at university campuses throughout the state to get the word out to their families and communities about voter registration, voting, and generally the political process. These campuses were selected for their significant Latino student enrollment, as well as being areas where Latino voters have the power to swing an election, Acuña explained.

“You can’t say, ‘We need to get Latinos out to vote with no political strategy. That is not the way to address the situation,” she argued. “If you actually focus on specific districts where Latinos are a large percentage of the population and their votes alone can swing an election, you can completely change the outcome.”

The way people at the Texas Democratic Party tell it, it was other Latinos who spurred the party into pursuing this type of action: in 2005 the party was publicly attacked by Latino politicians for not doing enough Latino outreach. Since then, Gutierrez claims the party has spent more money on, and emphasized, Latino voter outreach.

But thanks to the multiplier effects of social media, the party now has additional tools to conduct this sort of outreach, specifically using videos and social networks to do its Promesa Project advocacy. The party is even leveraging Facebook for the project, allowing participants to see which of their friends have voted.

But, Acuña and Gutierrez said the ultimate goal is to turn Texas into a blue state, while bringing Latinos into the fold to do so. The Promesa Project is one way they hope to bring in some of the 2.1 million Latinos eligible to vote but not registered, to expand the universe of voters available in the state — and if they’re really lucky — recruit more Latinos to participate beyond the ballot box and join in the party’s mission.

So, can the state Democrat Party explain why in 2010 there were Latino defections from the party and the Legislature saw a massive victory for the Republican Party? A party does not enjoy a surge like that without gaining a large amount of support from the Latino community.

America is being invaded from the south and nobody seems to care. The idiots in the “media” seem to think that this is just a natural occurrence. I watched a piece on FNC this morning where they seemed surprised that the “minority” is now the majority in some states. They were really surprised and couldn’t seem to understand why.

They will have a majority in the Government and will have the ability to vote their voters money from the other sect of society that doesn’t support them. That is full and unbridled tyranny!

Well than what the hell can we do about it (round them up and send them back across the border I know) But what if this doesn't stop, what's the old saying, "The constitution is not a suicide pact " what about Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Mississippi, etc et al. states who will be crushed by the Federal Districts of Kalifornia and Maryland.

This sounds like the same problem the Founders had, with a few states crushing and enslaving the others.

If there are 30 million illegals in America, its enough to create nearly 50 whole congressional districts. Republicans who drag their feet on border control are setting us up for a permanent fall.

It should also be noted that Texas also ranks about 8th in the percentage of the population that is muslim.

Don’t jump the gun, here. Mexican-Americans are not politically monolithic. There are many who are not just conservative, but very conservative. Though they vote Republican, they won’t join the party because they think it too liberal.

As a group, they also have better than average political acumen, because in Mexico of not-too-long-ago, supporting the wrong faction could get you killed on the spot.

That being said, from their perspective, what the two parties offer that they, the Mexican-Americans, are interested in, is pragmatic to what they want and need. And they have little desire to back a phony.

So what will you get from a “brown Texas?” The liberal cities will stay liberal, and the rest of the state, white or Mexican-American, will vote the way it does right now.

My Point exactly, the Balkanization of America continues.

A House divided against it self cannot stand, it do not stand in the 1860's and frankly isn't standing together right now. When Montana, Missouri, Michigan and South Carolina are forced to support Federally Bailed out California, by the Democratic system, i.e. they have more people in government than you, what point at all is their to this Union (that's crazy KC Lion, that would never happen) Lots have things that would and should never have happened did.

America is not immune to Greece's fate, and our entire history has been shaped around the point of Individuals succeeding or failing on their own. Not in the "collective salvation" of the country in which Oklahoma and Georgia is taxed into oblivion supporting Federal programs for Maryland.

Exactly. If the GOP-and the conservatives- want to survive and be relevant they must, must, get the Hispanic vote. The die was cast in 1965. The vast majority of Hispanics are pro-family, hate gays, go to church, and want to work. They are made for the GOP.

>> Once Texas goes ‘rat, the country is officially done. <<

Texas was effectively a one party RAT state from roughly 1870-1964 or so. That means Texas Democrats already had almost a century to govern and enact whatever they wanted. (see LBJ, Sam Rayburn, John Nance Gardner, Ma" Ferguson, etc. They had their shot so its not "progress" to turn control back over to them.

>> The Texas White Liberal is dead and more moderate and socially conservative Hispanic Texans will take over the state.
Boy, you live in fantasyland.
<<

I agree. I've met plenty of "Hispanics" who love Obamacare and "gay pride" parades. Is there anything "socially conservative" about Congressmen Rubén Hinojosa, Silvestre Reyes, or Charlie Gonzalez -- all elected from hispanic majority districts in Texas? If the excuse is that hispanics side with the GOP on social issues but vote Democrat for economic reasons, then logically they would choose the most "socially conservative" Democrats in primaries and hispanic districts would be filled with pro-life and pro-traditional marriage Democrat officials. Instead, 70-80% of the time they choose far-left Obama loving Democrats. Hmmm.

Absolutely. And the reason why politicians like Bush and the government have made American citizenship all but pointless, allowing millions to pour in illegally, while at the same time, flooding the U.S. with millions of foreigners legally. March towards total socialism and gain absolute control of everything.

If the economy sucks as it does in CA, the Hispanics won’t come over here. Still, the birth rate of Hipsanics is greater than Whites, but this too is declining as is the Islamic birth rate.
Before we write off TX, let’s see what happens in CA. CA’s population is not increasing because productive people are leaving at about the same rate as they are being replaced by illegals and their progeny. But eventually, this situation will become untenable and we could see a total collapse. TX may be able to learn from this and assimilate and persuade its Hispanic voters to support leaders that promote conservative values.

Right, you have the hand full of states who set policy in Washington D.C. because allegedly California has one of the Largest Tax bases in the country, and a Large population, so its electoral power trumps many other states.

This is what the Founders Feared most, large states dependent on the Federal Government dominating the Smaller ones. Democrat controlled and voting super states, California, New York, squishy Florida, and Mexican-Coup Texas, gang up and permanently prevent the Opposition from gaining control of the government, those people would in effect, be Taxed without being Represented.

This is also similar to the balance of Slave and Free States.

The Slave states had a Majority or Status Quo for the first 80 years of our Nation. That is the reason behind the War between Kansas and Missouri, because the Anti-Slave forces could then take the Presidency without needing to win any of the Slave states.

If this doesn't stop, there won't be any Swing states, only the solid Democrat will have enough without any say from Non-Democrat ones.

Texas will never become a liberal strong hold like California, for one thing it has a strong Evangelical population which will convert many Hispanics into Republican voting Protestants, something that California could not do.

Conservatism in Texas is strong, deep, widespread, and passionate, it is not a passive force merely observing things, it jumps in to intervene and force changes, and deal with fluid situations.

California never had the Texas core to counter what it passively allowed to wash over it’s wishy washy people with their lite religion, lite republicanism, lite Americanism, lite Protestantism, Texans are red blooded people, and the conservatives, and Christians there are used to fighting.

When we see illegals sneaking across the border most of them are male, occasionally you will see a couple of females, but in order to produce such large numbers of children there must be large numbers of women who are sneaking across the border. This is puzzling, how are they doing it? There must be other ways for women to sneak into the United States. Many people have permits to come cross the border to shop, visit family etc., I wonder if women just get these permits, enter into the US and then melt into the population? Its seems like a really easy thing to do. I am pretty sure that the Border Patrol are not keeping track of the people who temporarily enter legally.
