Posted on 05/22/2012 7:44:16 AM PDT by Paladins Prayer
If Democratic voters were rapidly increasing in number and Republican voters rapidly decreasing, it should be pretty big news, shouldnt it?
Not when at issue is a third rail of American social commentary: race.
Recently I wrote a piece on race and voting patterns, using as a lede the story about how white births now account for less than 50 percent of the U.S. total for the first time in history. And while most respondents agreed with my analysis, some reacted predictably: Uncomfortable even hearing about race and/or frightened by what lies ahead, they rationalized away obvious facts.
And here is one: You cannot understand where our nation is headed ideologically without grasping the link between racial identification and voting patterns and demographic changes that will yield Democratic hegemony.

That implies the GOP has a chance to take Wisconsin. If not, make it 253. Romney would pretty much have to run the table the rest of the way.
The party will have to change. Much like the DNC.
Majorities never last forever in an empire.
“Majorities never last forever in an empire.”
Empires never last forever, especially when they lost their important majority.
IMO the only way this will not play out in the total destruction and replacement of the American Experiment is a total economic collapse and radical restructuring of the welfare state, which is underwriting the demographic shift.
The demographics favor the emergence of a white minority someday down the road, a couple more generations away. When it happens, when the Hispanics are the majority (or whoever) we will suddenly discover that they are not all alike after all, and the parties will shift to accommodate. It ultimately may lead to the death of the GOP as we know it, but truthfully those country club patricians that run it now really do need to be turned out so at least some good will come of it.
Hispanics will be democrat, but will bring about the opposite of the utopia American liberals dream of. The American liberal’s most important ideals include: Women’s rights, animal rights, the environment, promotion of homosexuality, planned small families, and equality.
The hispanic culture embraces sexism, animal fighting, could care less about the environment, proud of expressing their hostility for gays, have huge families, and systematically give better treatment to those with lighter skin.
Too early for anything to be valid. I'll take a tip from the old song and "see you in September - sealed with a Myth".
The planned takeover/change of the US is moving right along. Get rid of white-heterosexual-multigenerational Christian American males. They’re the only obstacle to the NWO’s plans.
It took Rome about five centuries to self-destruct to the extent that America has almost reached in two generations. I have been fighting the ideological underpinnings of the Left on this since college, and while they have never yet come up with a logically sustainable argument, they continue to successfully intimidate. But as to their "argument," see Reason Or Compulsion--The Future At Stake. You might also find this piece on Immigration & The American Future of interest.
The issue is further compounded by the relationship of the insane notion that people are interchangeable, with the effort on the Left to submerge America into a World Government. Obviously, breaking down the traditional American ethnicity is a major step in that direction. (See Surrender By Subterfuge.)
One other note: Thomas Jefferson, who had no animosity towards any people, actually explained that he bought Louisiana as a buffer for the Anglo/Celtic cultured Eastern States from the Hispanic world. Just look at how greatly the now Mestizo dominated neighborhoods in California differ from the Anglo neighborhoods that they replaced. The idea that peoples are interchangeable is the ultimate insult to everyone. It fits the Marxist lie, but not reality.
I disagree. We do care about the environment, we just don’t freak out and buy the Gore koolaide on the subject.
It is hard to get fellow Hispanics to vote their values, not the BS liberals have been selling for years. Then again, we do have a good conservative Hispanic governor here in New Mexico.
For more on the Academic underpinnings of the onslaught against rooted Americans & the values that made America once the envy of the world, see Myths & Myth Makers In American Higher Education.
“If Democratic voters were rapidly increasing in number and Republican voters rapidly decreasing, it should be pretty big news, shouldnt it?”
Uh, what? It was a big story. Does this guy want us to talk about nothing else, or what?
Romney has problems growing within the GOP. Just the other day, two of the people who voted to change the rules in his favor after the Michigan primary were voted out of their NRC seats and replaced by tea party supported people.
“When it happens, when the Hispanics are the majority (or whoever) we will suddenly discover that they are not all alike after all, and the parties will shift to accommodate”
Yeah, I’m confused as to why people assume that when hispanics become the majority they will continue with the exact same ideology. That may be so, but who knows? We’ve never had a non-white majority to test it. But we have had minorities within whitehood, like Catholics, Germans, Irish Italians, etc., and they all eventually became indistinguishable from other white people. Perhaps hispanics will do the same.
I probably spoke too strongly about couldn’t care less about the environment, but I am married to woman from Mexico, so I can see that the environment is not such an important issue in Mexico as it is here.
Or look at the voting patterns in New York City!
Luckily, there is a countervailing trend, identified by Prof. Arthur Brooks, which I’d label the “Portlandia” trend. What it amounts to is that white liberals aren’t having kids, but conservative Christians are.
No worries, I understand. In Mexico, as in most of Latin America, the big issue is to put food on the table. For most working class families in the US, it is the same thing. Especially with the lib propensity to bankrupt states and the country.
It is time to oppose the same sorry mistakes that McCain and the RINO Party made in 2008.
It is also time for us as Conservatives to recognize and avoid making the same sorry mistakes that WE made in 2008.
One mistake that we made in 2008 was to revert back to the old days when we were known as The Silent Majority. We grumbled, held our noses, and Caved-In as all good RINO sheep are expected to do.
Our Silent Caving-In in 2008 created the problem that MANY Conservatives refused to vote for McCain.
IF we behave in 2012 as RINO Sheep and Cave-In to whoever the RINOs endorse, nominate and support, then we Conservatives are no better than our RINO U.S. Representatives and Senators who always Cave-In.
This election is for ALL of the marbles! We cannot afford to play the old RINO game that caused the defeat of McCain to Marxist Obama in 2008.
Obama is much stronger politically now than he was against McCain in 2008, but the RINO Party refuses to consider that reality.
It is time to DUMP ROMNEY who is obviously to weak of a candidate to beat Obama.
The Delegates need to choose in an OPEN Convention a strong NON-RINO Nominee who can soundly defeat Obama, and coat-tail U.S. Senators and Representatives into Congress.
Romney is not that man: DUMP ROMNEY!
We must learn from the mistakes made by the McCain Campaign and rub the collective noses of the RINOs in it!
Romney is counting on the old Classical Conservative Cave-In.
I can hear Romney now: You have no choice but to vote for me. Ill be even more severely Conservative than I was when I rammed through Romneycare. Trust me, I know how The Economy works. Etc, etc., etc.
The battle to win back a CONSERVATIVE White House is starting to break wide open!
Yeah, sure, it’s just a coincidence that majority Hispanic countries are all socialistic in nature and are basically corrupt third world backwaters.
It couldn’t have anything to do with the people getting the government they deserve.
Nice dream, but it doesn’t make a difference. Because each generation is still more liberal than the preceding one. This is why kids today have no problem with homosexual pseudo-marriage.
It doesn’t matter so much who has the kids if the liberal society is able to brainwash them.
And how many conservatives actually pointed out how a growing minority vote means the death of conservatism? Pat Buchanan, this guy, Thomas Sowell and....
Mainstream conservatives will hear, see and speak no evil.
“Yeah, sure, its just a coincidence that majority Hispanic countries are all socialistic in nature and are basically corrupt third world backwaters.

You could have said the same thing of much of Asia in the recent past and most of Africa for a long while. I don’t see why it would have anything to do with the intrinsic nature of hispanics nor Central/South American culture, fundamentally.
This is the prelude to the breakup of the USA. Even us old timers may live to see th Regionalism of this country.
Yes, well the fact that you don’t ‘see’ it doesn’t mean it isn’t true. I guess they were just cursed by Satan.
Who/What are these “Mainstream conservatives”? Are they the Neo-Cons that the CIA operative Wm Buckley brought in to replace the Race Realist Conservatives, the bulwark against the Balkanization of the Western Culture. These RR Cons that get thrown out by the likes of ‘Rich Lowry Conservatives’, or the DAzz Conservatives that thought GWB was a Conservative with his Amnesty hard on?
The only real hope for the 2012 election is the Sailer Strategy, ie GOP Future Depends on Winning Larger Share of the White Vote;
Ditto for Arab muslims, who in time will have as their stronghold the Northeast and upper Midwest.
"America" in 2100 will be comprised of Spanish-speaking muslims with Asiatic features. Caucasians, long relegated to minority status, will have migrated north to the upper reaches of Canada and (if it's not ceded back to Russia by then) Alaska.
Catholics did not change, they have continued to be democrats, they never assimilated completely.
We have had non-white minorities become majorities in many local areas, and we can see that they don’t magically become Conservative when they reach that tipping point. They continue to try to transform their cities into the 3rd world cesspools they came from.
Also the white “minorities” you speak of had no problems, because they assimilated. They didn’t dig their heels in and lobby for German or Irish-language classes in schools, and hold marches every year accusing the rest of us of racism.
It hasn't been the useless Rich Lowry, who has run the American Dhimmi... sorry American Conservative. This publication started by Pat Buchanan and Scott "Jesus was a Palestinian" McConnell has dedicated itself to foreign policy and the destruction of a single nation state, Israel. It has catagorically refused to deal with the national question in America, and rarely deals with immigration. Instead it imports writers from the Nation to write on foreign policy ad gets writers to sill for Ralph Nader in 2004 and Barack Obama in 2008.
Then we the only publication to run Steve Sailer, Vdare.com . The problem is that Peter Brimlow's pet project also runs Paul Craig Robert's who went insane after 9-11. PCR hates actual neoconservatives above all else. He doesn't care about the White Doe, but about his white whale, neoconservatives and Israel. This traitor to the white race wrote: If I could rid America of neoconservatives, I would accept the entire population of Mexico. http://www.vdare.com/articles/why-should-immigrants-and-amnestied-illegals-benefit-from-affirmative-action-quotas
Then we have the John Birch Society conspiracy loons you seem to like. The people support Ron Paul, who believes in no immigration restrictions. The JBS utopians want to get rid of illegals and reduce immigration without an iota more Federal or State power. That isn't policy. That's the complacency of delusion and the fall back of conspiratorial thinking when reality hits.
Let me be perfectly blunt, the fever swamps of conspiracy and magical thinking have turned paleoconservativism and Bircherism into the handmaiden of the left on the immigration issue, by making themselves irrelevant. No CIA money was needed.
Meanwhile, we have people on this website proclaiming that the majority of this country is conservative and that the future belongs to the GOP, if only wed run more people like Christine ODonnell and Sharron Angle, as long as the GOP establishment supports them. I think the reality is that the Federal government has imported enough legal immigrants and instituted enough entitlements and race preference programs that the Democratic party has a virtual lock on the presidency and an increasing hold on the Federal legislature. To salt the wound, it was Nixon who actually instituted Hispanic preferences, thereby slicing off a huge chunk of what might have become white voters, and created an Asian category that covered Indians instead of automatically considering them white. Instead of assimilation, the GOP has been engaged in the politics of balkanization, which plays to Democratic strengths. At this stage, the GOP really needs to get its act together and start to paint the Democrats as the black party, much as the Democrats try to paint the GOP as the white party.
Still, I don't think there's any need for demographic angst over the current electorate for the 2012 election, which was born at least 18 years ago, back when white births were the majority of all live births in the country. Thanks to birthright citizenship, though, 18 years from now, Democrats will have a lock on the presidency. And in a decade, it wouldn't surprise me if Texas became reliably Democratic. John Derbyshire was right. We are doomed...

We did this to ourselves.
We - both Conservatives and Leftists - have willfully and knowingly designed mass immigration policies that have changed America.
We had the option to limit immigration, and we rejected it.
We had the option to admit only high value workers, and we rejected it.
For the Left, at least in the short term, these policies make sense, since new immigrant citizens vote 80% for the Democrat Party.
But the bill is going to come due for white American Socialists the same way it has come due for white Socialists in South Africa and the former Rhodesia.
As for Conservatives - Reagan, the Bush's, the Wall Street Journal, the Libertarians, the Neo-Cons - history can only look back and wonder, “What were they thinking?”
Re: “And how many conservatives actually pointed out how a growing minority vote means the death of conservatism?”
Don’t forget Rush Limbaugh, who has called our mass immigration policy “The largest Left Wing voter registration plan in history.”
And don’t forget me.
I’ve been ringing this bell for seven years at Free Republic...and generated little but polite yawns.
The Muslim plurality for Hollande was about 1.75 million.
Excluding Muslims, Sarkozy would have won the election by about 400,000 votes.
Think about that.
On his most “Conservative” day Sarkozy is Center-Left, but he could get only 7% of the Muslim vote!
The same case in Israel, where Palestinian Arabs outnumber Orthodox Jews.
Without the Palestinian vote, Israeli government would be consistently Center-Right.
The movie “Idiocracy” was not a comedy, it was a prophetic documentary.
My thoughts exactly. Buchanan has really lost it. It's one thing to say that we did not need to fight Germany and/or Japan in WWII and quite another to say that the Germans and the Japanese were the good guys, as he more or less did. He's gone from there to saying that any old Muslim that attacks us is a misunderstood good guy. His assumption that only our potential adversaries have legitimate foreign policy interests that Americans should not oppose, no matter how threatening to our interests, has completely trashed any credibility he might have had for sane conservatives, who have always understood that some security interests are a zero-sum game that we occasionally have to fight wars to preserve.
Only four states left to flip, with five genuine opportunities.
It literally does not get any easier to beat a sitting President in the modern era than this.
This made me laugh, and when I proof it, I laugh again! This is funny in Engish AND Spanish!
I agree. How did the party of the KKK (the dims) be percieved as more minority-friendly than the party of Lincoln? We can change that perception

What started off as a good thing (caring for the environment) when taken to extremes (environazis) is bad.
the same thing with liberalism. I was watch Downton Abbey (a British serial about life ina county great house from 1912 to 1920) and in many ways the liberals at that time were correct -- asking for equal opportunities and preventing aristocracy from being utter despots -- but taken to extremes and you had communism.
A few things: Self-perpetuating minorities (I.e., those that actually raise kids in significant numbers) are the ones that are most likely to vote Republican and Conservative. Married with children Hispanics vote Republican, not Democrat.
Most women with kids are not married. They are married to Uncle Sam. They don’t need to get married, and the baby daddies don’t want to be.
“How did the party of the KKK (the dims) be percieved as more minority-friendly than the party of Lincoln? We can change that perception”
Since the New Deal, the democrats have engaged in the politics of FREEBIES and populist/socialist attacks on ‘the rich’ to pay for it.
Anyone at the bottom end of the economic scale knows the score. “Obama’s getting me a new car!”
