Skip to comments.Republicans: An old, white, dying breed of voter?
Posted on 11/25/2012 9:55:22 AM PST by Altura Ct.
The Republicans are old white men, red necks and racists. They're in thrall to tea-baggers, who do not understand or give a darn about minorities.
If only other Republicans knew how often I had this hateful brew (hatred of white male conservatives is still socially acceptable on the left) shoved down my throat. But what's been directed at me personally is worse: I have been called a sell-out, hater of a brother (meaning Obama), and numerous choice words I can't share here (hatred of conservative black women from the left is trickier, but even more heart-felt).
...It is time to lay down the tracks of a new "underground railroad," a movement to help a people who are in bondage to the Democratic Party find hope and encouragement in the GOP, a movement that will wake up complacent Democrats and Republicans alike, a movement that will stop the hemorrhaging of the GOP. We will not be televised - the mainstream media can't imagine that we exist and we remain invisible to them - but we will be webvised, we will be heard online through bloggers, videos, e-mails and text messages, twitters, Facebook and more. We can no longer be shut out. We are the voice of the 21st century and we will be heard. If the RNC continues to think of blacks and Latinos as an afterthought, the GOP will continue its genteel decline and forfeit any chance of victory in 2016.
...Mitt Romney was doomed to fail when the Republican party failed to develop a clear and coherent agenda to appeal to blacks, Latinos, and other non-white people.

The RINO party is no different than the DimWhit party. They are all one and the same. We are stuck with two of the same. Sad.
As long as Conservatives are ruled by the GOP, the GOP dies. Yeah, yeah, I know the argument about a Third Party. But there is a future with a Third Party. There is oblivion with the GOP.
I read the article. What do think I missed?
Republicans aren’t going to attract black voters without getting into a bidding war with Dems. We don’t need blacks to win anyways.
If they were true, the election numbers they spew, why the need for all that vote fraud?
In war the enemy will often tell you that you are outnumber and fighting back is useless. It save them bullets if your side gives up.
They tell you EVERY vote, YOUR vote is important and then look the other way at very suspicious vote counts which totally obliterate the legitimate votes...those that were supposed to be so very important.
Short of this the parasites will soon *outnumber* the producers and then it's game over.I think that Romney might have been wrong about "47%"...I suspect it's closer to 49%.If not higher.
And people like you just gave Obama at least another 2 Supreme Court nominees after which we can truly kiss the country good-bye. You special people certainly showed us so how or if you do vote in the future truly doesn’t matter.
I’ve been voting Republican since the late 80’s and we’re being taken over by Mexico, Kenya and Islam.....
Voting Republican doesn’t stop sh*t.
Better to speed up the decline so something new can rise from the ashed at this point.
Has nothing to do with race. The Republican party is where you find most of the productive people, the business owners, the hard-working people who don’t have an obamaphone. So happens that most of those are WASPs. White, anglo-saxon protestants.
Its past time for a grass roots GOP candidate to arise. The 2016 version is not yet on the horizon. Any known quantity (Rubio, Palin, Jindal) can be defined and marginalized. The GOP needs a wildcard in 2016. Clint Eastwood please pick up the red courtesy phone...
As usual, the conservatives who are supposed to be on the same side end up turning on their own - maybe this purist mentality is the reason we end up handing victory to the Democrats time and time again.
Electoral votes won by "Third Party" candidates"
1984 to 2012 = ZERO
The truest words yet spoken on this thread.
Tuesday at the RNC in August should have illustrated this fact with crystal clarity . Too many are mentally enslaved to a paradigm that no longer exists because they refuse to believe that the GOP is nothing more than a satellite party of the Democrat MarxoFascists.
This election and the aftermath of blame upon the Conservatives by the Ruling Class Establishment, AFTER they force-fed us THEIR approved candidate - is all the proof any logical thinking person needs to understand that what RightwardHo wrote in brevity - is in fact, pure truth.
The GOP will move further Left - as evidenced by the Establishment lecturing about how it needs to 'reach out' (i.e.: surrender and pander) to the constituencies and programs already championed by the MarxoFascists.
What the GOP is saying, is that if they ever want to win elections again - the GOP must adopt Liberal Socialism in order to compete with the MarxoFascists for their slice of the conquered pie that used to be America.
There is no future in the GOP for Conservatives. None. And there's no possibility to take the party over from within, that has been tried and has failed and Tuesday at the RNC ensured no grassroots Conservative will EVER be able to gain control of their party.
If Conservatives want a voice - they must separate from the plantation party, or enter oblivion.
Me either. They can pound sand, if they had the sense, but they don’t.
Boehner’s purging conservatives. McCain’s folding like a lawn chair. They can go to `ell!
We’re not on YOUR side as the GOP-e made it perfectly clear that they are NOT on the Conservative’s side.
Tell you what - since we ‘purists’ are such a problem for you Establishment types in the vichy party of the GOP - and you assert it is because of staunch principled Conservatives that you keep losing national elections - you can keep your party and have it all to yourselves with the Ruling Class leftists who run it.
We ‘purists’ want nothing to do with a party of compromise and surrender to the MarxoFascists.
It’s time for a divorce from an adulterous and unfaithful party to the principles that once married us to it.
There. Problem of us ‘purists’ solved. The GOP is yours to do whatever you wish without the burden of Christian and ‘purist’ Conservatives holding you back from your destiny to become one with the Democrats.
...Mitt Romney was doomed to fail “
...VOTER FRAUD, VOTER FRAUD, VOTER FRAUD!!! Wake the hell up!!
This kind of PC gibberish is nonsense and every thinking person knows it.
The only clear agenda that might apeal to the 95% of black voters who blindly vote for people like Barack Obama is to give them more free stuff than the democrats do.
It would also be a big plus if you promise to pass a law letting them take anything they want from any white person they see.
I don't think it had anything to do with freebies. I contend that blacks are the most die hard racists on earth. I contend they'd vote for Adolph Hitler if he were black.
No, the Stupid party has lost the country and if you continue to be part of it, YOU advance the problem.
Btw, I will not vote for candidates who vote, behave, and act like liberals!
Apparently, some people will vote for ANYBODY!
Before the election, I kept hearing about how conservative-minded, family-oriented blacks were disillusioned with Obama and were going to throw him out. There were even black pastors exhorting their congregations not to vote for him.
And what happened? He got 93% of the black vote. Some sources I’ve read claim it was as high as 99%.
Now its all about so-called conservative-minded, family-oriented Hispanics, and how naturally the Republican party fits them, especially if Marco Rubio, the Hispanic savior gets involved. The fact that brown Mexicans do not see white-skinned European-descended Rubio as a brother escapes them.
When will we learn? Its not about race-pandering. Its about resentment of old white men, and getting all the freebies they can
BS. This is becoming a tired and ignorant response to why Romney lost. It is no great mystery why he lost:
1) he was a lackluster candidate (at best) who failed to excite the base
2) he was a moderate who proved what we have known for generations - moderates have NEVER won election to the WH (Bush, 43, aside - he was a pretend conservative. Romney couldn't even pull that off.)
3) Romney kept any details of plans he had too close to the vest too long. Once he got the official nomination, that was his cue to begin divulging details. He wouldn't do that until it was way too late in the campaign.
4) The RNC had preselected ROMNEY for us from the get-go and only pretended to go along with the other candidates.
5) the RNC betrayed the other Republican candidates by starting the "Romney is electable" whispering campaign so that a lot of people voted for Romney in the primaries (because he is electable) instead of the candiate they REALLY suported.
6) 20- and 30-somethings have been exposed to liberal indoctrination for 12 years in the public indoctrination centers (aka public schools) so that they would eschew the Republican nominee, regardless.
7) The complicit DBM AND the RINOs in the Republican Party have made a regular habit of avoiding the truth and failing to expose the truth about the Dems. As long as the GOP-E REFUSES to tell the truth and educate the public about the disingenuous DNC, the 'Pubbies will ALWAYS be the minority party and, if something doesn't change in the very near future, they could become the EXTINCT party!!!
Conservatives can and will take only so much! We are reaching critical mass and, if something doesn't give soon, we may well help the RNC to extinction by simpling failing to show up and vote for "the lesser of the two evils" (but not by much!).
Yeah, good luck with that, Janis Joplin.
In case you haven't heard, the rule of law is dead and the Constitution has been shredded by the Dems.
Welcome to the "new normal".
You illustrate your ignorance better than I could have ever hoped. Your reading comprehension skills are very poor also.
As I stated, fool, it is folly to think conservatives should abandon the GOP because of the rino. Take them out, the party has ways to do that and as I stated, that is my intention and have been successful locally. Ever hear about politics are local or baby steps?
Of course you haven’t because you are a lazy fool who’d rather bitch anonymously in the comfort of your home or wherever you are posting. You are part of the problem.
You’re the fool.
Bigtime. Stuck in a paradigm that no longer exists, slave to a plantation party, no different than the way the blacks are to the Democrat party.
The GOP long ago abandoned Conservatives, this election they simply made it official. They are at war with Conservatives, only a willfully blind imbecile insists that the GOP is a Conservative’s only hope.
The proof of the disdain and contempt the GOP has for Conservatives is self-evident in not only the election itself - but the aftermath of blame being fostered by the Ruling Class upon Conservatives for the “loss”.
And since you and your compatriot slaves to an adulterous party consider me and those Conservatives like me, ‘the problem’ - we surrender the GOP to fools like yourselves. It’s all yours.
We’re going elsewhere from now on and waging the war of ideas from a different party on both the GOP and the Marxofascists in the Democrat party since they are both proven enemies of Conservatism and Constitutional principles.
You want to continue to war on principled Conservatives who see the GOP for what they have become? You make our job of a third party that much easier, so thanks in advance.
Go fetal position then, have it your way.
We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America.
Thats what people fail to understand.
Col Allen West; I dont want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people dont trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic.
Col West has opened the door.
Its now up to We The People.
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.
There are massive reports of criminal activity
(not mischief, not shenanigans, as many term the fraud- but CRIMINAL ACTIVITY) going on all over the U.S during the presidential election.
Reports of machines changing votes from Romney to Obama, eyewitness reports of Republican poll watchers who observed busloads of non-English speaking Somalians in Ohio being instructed to vote Obama- the list is endless.
Romney lost because of this, not any other reason.
Nobody could have won against the fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama Machine.
The evidence is overwhelming!

I used to be "conservative", but after watching the trail of losers the Republican Party has put up over the past few decades, I am libertarian in my anglo-saxon protestant heterosexual male old age.
We're no longer a free Republic. We lost in a coup in 2008, and few Americans are willing to put their heads around that fact. A fact the enemy is using against us to use the time to consolidate power beyond your wildest imaginations.
Zimbabwe is a good illustration of where we are going.
Too many are still stuck thinking elections are going to correct where we are headed. They're stuck in the paradigm of the last 65 years and cannot allow themselves to think off the plantation.
Well, the ballot box no longer works when it has been corrupted by the MarxoFascists who will never 'lose' another election from now until eternity. Maybe they will become cognizant of that in the future when 99.99% of "the vote" goes to MarxoFascists.
In a MarxoFascist coup - it's not who casts votes that count, but who counts the votes that determines the 'winners'. Cook County went national. Few listened.
The GOP is now just a satellite party of the MarxoFascists.
Well, the quote was, “old white men”.
I guess we can’t conclusively list Hillary at this time.
The problem is that your tactic is reactionary — have you ever heard a socialist/communist/leftist say, “that’s it — I am never voting for another Democrat again” because their candidate was/is not LEFT enough? No, they infiltrated the Democratic Party and over many years slowly dragged the entire party to the Left.
Your approach of “taking your marbles” and quitting the game altogether rather than working within the Republican party to reorient it toward a more conservative position seems very short-sighted and counterproductive, IMHO.
But isn’t more fun to lose and lose and be part of a cult (+50s white) so we can dream up and propagate grand conspiracy theories to each other (circular) about the polls and all the swing states elections being stolen?
“Soon we will all be rounded up into Obama-care camps. We cant win anymore due to the MSM and rigged polls and stolen elections and half of the country being brainwashed slaves of the Dems. It doesn't matter what we do or say now or who we pick in primaries. We have no responsibility. Its all over so lets just party in the bunker with our fellow comrades.”
Isn’t that a blast?
I'm an old white guy who doesn't hang around this site too much any more, but I believe the same things you believe. At times I wonder how focused the GOP is on them, though.
you believe that all latinos and blacks and other non-white people are takers and not makers?
fact is that many are not nor ever will be the conservatives
of your dreams, but they do work hard and produce. why can’t they be welcomed for what they do bring to the table, such as work ethic and technical expertise?
Obviously, the ones who vote Democrat are moochers, and very rude ones at that. How rude and boorish do you have to be to walk into a polling place on election day and vote for big government to confiscate more taxes... from their neighbors?

Of course such people are welcomed. Unless they are complete morons (and rude and boorish) who vote Democrat, they are already on the side of decency and common courtesy.
Your problem is that you have no clue what time it really is.
The GOP quit Conservatives, plain and simple. They have made that abundantly clear. Anyone who still doesn’t understand that - is either a party hack or cognitively dissonant because they cannot acknowledge the truth.
Your approach of practicing insanity was bad enough when we were still a Republic and the GOP was simply Democrat party light.
It’s almost criminal now that we’ve been overthrown in a velvet Marxist coup and people like you still lecture Conservatives that the best approach is to do what had been proven to be a losing gambit in the GOP; stay slaves on the plantation and try to reform a corrupted liberal party from within.
But you go ahead and lie to yourself that playing on the Ruling Class field according to their arbitrary rules, run by their oligarchs will give your principles any kind of voice in a Marxist regime.
Yes. Keep lying to yourself. It’s probably the only way you will be able to cope with reality.
Proof you are clueless and have no clue what time it is:
Thank you for taking my inventory. It's been enlightening having such an engaging, pleasant conversation with you. I hope we can do it again in the future.
