I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.
On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.
According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980 -- and that was when whites were 88 percent of the electorate. Only 58 percent of today's under-30 vote is white and it's shrinking daily.
What the youth vote shows is not that young people are nitwits who deserve lives of misery and joblessness, as I had previously believed, but that America is hitting the tipping point on our immigration policy.
The youth vote is a snapshot of elections to come if nothing is done to reverse the deluge of unskilled immigrants pouring into the country as a result of Ted Kennedy's 1965 immigration act. Eighty-five percent of legal immigrants since 1968 have come from the Third World. A majority of them are in need of government assistance.
Whites are 76 percent of the electorate over the age of 30 and only 58 percent of the electorate under 30. Obama won the "youth vote" because it is the knife's edge of a demographic shift, not because he offered the kids free tuition and contraception (which they don't need because it's hard to have sex when you're living with your parents at 27).
In 1980, Hispanics were only 2 percent of the population, and they tended to be educated, skilled workers who got married, raised their children in two-parent families and sent their kids to college before they, too, got married and had kids. (In that order.)
That profile has nothing to do with recent Hispanic immigrants, who -- because of phony "family reunification" rules -- are the poorest of the world's poor.
More than half of all babies born to Hispanic women today are illegitimate. As Heather MacDonald has shown, the birthrate of Hispanic women is twice that of the rest of the population, and their unwed birthrate is one and a half times that of blacks.
That's a lot of government dependents coming down the pike. No amount of "reaching out" to the Hispanic community, effective "messaging" or Reagan's "optimism" is going to turn Mexico's underclass into Republicans.
Any election analysis that doesn't deal with the implacable fact of America's changing demographics is bound to be wrong.
Perhaps the reason elections maven Michael Barone was so shockingly off in his election prediction this year was that, in the biggest mistake of his career, Barone has been assuring us for years that most of these Third World immigrants pouring into the country would go the way of Italian immigrants and become Republicans. They're hardworking! They have family values!
Maybe at first, but not after coming here, having illegitimate children and going on welfare.
Charles Murray recently pointed out that -- contrary to stereotype -- Hispanics are less likely to be married, less likely to go to church, more supportive of gay marriage and less likely to call themselves "conservative" than other Americans.
Rather than being more hardworking than Americans, Hispanics actually work about the same as others, or, in the case of Hispanic women, less.
It seems otherwise, Murray says, because the only Hispanics we see are the ones who are working -- in our homes, neighborhoods and businesses. "That's the way that almost all Anglos in the political chattering class come in contact with Latinos," he notes. "Of course they look like model Americans."
(Black males would apparently like to work more. Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got.)
An article by Nate Cohn in the current New Republic argues, as the title puts it: "The GOP Has Problems With White Voters, Too." As proof, Cohn cites Jefferson County, Colo.; Loudoun County, Va.; Wake County, N.C.; and Somerset County, N.J., all of which went Republican in presidential elections from 1968 through 2004, but which Romney lost in 2012.
Smelling a rat, I checked the demographic shifts in these counties from the 2000 to the 2010 census. In each one, there has been a noticeable influx of Hispanics (and Asians, who also vote Democrat), diminishing "the white vote" that Cohn claims Republicans are losing.
Between the 2000 and 2010 census, for example, the white population of Jefferson County declined from more than 90 percent to less than 80 percent, while the Hispanic population more than doubled, from 6 percent to 14 percent.
In Loudoun County, the Asian population tripled from 5 percent to 15 percent and the Hispanic population doubled from 6 percent to 12 percent. Meanwhile, whites plummeted from 83 percent to 69 percent of the population.
Similarly, Wake County shifted from 74 percent white to 66 percent white in the past decade, while the Hispanic population doubled, from 5 percent to 10 percent, and the black population stayed even at about 20 percent.
In Somerset County, the Hispanic population grew by 63 percent and the Asian population grew by 83 percent since 2000. The number of whites has remained steady, resulting in a population that is now just 62 percent white.
These were the counties chosen by Cohn, not me, to show that Republicans are losing "the white vote." Except they're not so white, anymore. With blacks, Asians and Hispanics voting 93 percent, 73 percent and 71 percent for Obama, Republicans have to do more than just win the white vote. They have to run the table.
Romney got a larger percentage of the white vote than Reagan did in 1980. That's just not enough anymore.
Ironically, Romney was the first Republican presidential candidate in a long time not conspiring with the elites to make America a dumping ground for the world's welfare cases. Conservatives who denounced Romney as a "RINO" were the ones doing the bidding of the real establishment: business, which wants cheap labor and couldn't care less if America ceases to be the land of opportunity that everyone wanted to immigrate to in the first place.
I think these videos demonstrate pressing issues - and we each need to prepare now - just in case. Looking at Long Island and the totally abandonment of those US Citizens by the local and national govt is just plain crazy!
On my website, I re-did a 52 week prep list - and shortened it to 8 wks prep time. Link: http://babylonscovertwar.com/PSD/2012_SURVIVAL%20LIST_Weekly%20Purchase.docx

Per the fuel issue in the world, I found these two videos very interesting:
Her judgment is poor. Her thinking is very much "inside the Beltway" -- although she tries hard to present herself otherwise.
We are beyond the “el tipping point”.
That small minded dig at the end was a little contrived, though,
No it wasn't she was thinking with her vajayjay, She wanted to be the queen bee and not the wanna bee, it was all female envy that destroyed Sarah from our side and you can name the rest of them that did it too....
This article is 100% correct and explains a lot.
Republicans have allowed themselves to be intimidated as “racist” while democrats deliberately changed the USA’s racial demographics with legal and illegal immigration.
Republicans are damn idiots.
This piece makes sense to me.
2.5 million mostly white generally Republican voters die every year in the US and are replaced (and more) by minorities (black/hispanic/asian) who are > 70% Democrat voters.
The trend is not our friend.
She needs to stick to writing, she’s very good at it.
Ann Coulter has disappointed, but so has Sarah Palin. Many here are in a Palin dream world. I was an emotional Palin supporter but her over exposure on Fox has become unwatchable. She never made the effort to discipline herself to be a more serious national figure.
At the risk of sounding racist (I’m Hispanic, btw)...
The more the electorate becomes less white, the more dumb they become with their decisions, and thus, we end up with the worst possible outcomes for “leadership” of the country.
Or co-conspirators... how else can one explain the level of cowardice and incompetence?
If Ann had spent less time attacking Sarah Palin and less time promoting Romney, we might have had a different nominee and we might have the White House now.
Her judgment is poor. Her thinking is very much “inside the Beltway” — although she tries hard to present herself otherwise.
“2.5 million mostly white generally Republican voters die every year in the US and are replaced (and more) by minorities (black/hispanic/asian) who are > 70% Democrat voters.”
Who are reproducing like rabbits.
Agreed, that final paragraph should have been dropped. Otherwise, an informative commentary.
OMG that is the most boring thing I’ve read this year.
Ann, sweet heart, add a few more statistics why doncha?
A feral organism is one that has changed from being domesticated to being wild or untamed. In the case of plants it is a movement from cultivated to uncultivated or controlled to volunteer.
As with any introduced species, the introduction of feral animals or plants to non-native regions may disrupt ecosystems and has, in some cases, contributed to extinction of indigenous species.
These are Feral Aliens.
Villaraigosa said recently here in the Los Angeles Times that there are 4.3 million immigrants in Los Angeles.
Doug McIntyre said recently in the Daily News that there are 750,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles, or 19.6 percent of the population.
Our population increases by 5 people, one is an American of American parents, The other 4 are foreign born or their offspring.
73 percent of Asians and 75 percent of Latinos voted for Obama.
I dont believe they were duped at all I think they are all complicit, All that matters is the Club stay together and the Ruling Class Pervails.
I'm afraid I have to agree with that, and I am a little miffed at her.
I suppose I could get over it, if I gave her a good spanking.
“... Republicans are damn idiots.”
(... with apologies to idiots all over!!!)

Here’s one: 9 out of 10 Ivy League bimbos are too stupid to open their own bottles of Romanée Conti (I googled that brand).
Write and tell us how life works out for you there.
I will never buy another Coulter book.
I really didn’t want to read this article by her.
I guess I was looking for her mention of the Consent Decree, but, not surprisingly, she didn’t address it.
“Why the GOP wont challenge vote fraud.
The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.”
Until someone explains this to me, I’ll never buy another politically oriented book, because it is obvious I’d just be supporting whores.
Too little too late, Ann.
In a democratic republic, elections enable the citizens to select new leaders when they are dissatisfied with the ruling elite.
The 1965 immigration act turned this on its head.
The ruling elite became dissatisfied with their people, and selected new ones.
“Give me your tired, your poor... Your huddled masses yearning to sit on their butts and collect benefits....”
“Give me your tired, your poor... Your huddled masses yearning to sit on their butts and collect benefits.... and vote democrat...”
I want to like Sarah Palin more than I do because I certainly agree with her values. But it seems like she often states the obvious and takes too long to make a point. Maybe it’s her accent I don’t like. I’m not really sure. I guess I would say that she does well sometimes in her commentary, but other times she fails to impress.
The 1965 immigration act turned this on its head.

That is quite an astute observation. Bravo.
You’re not alone in that.
Who cares what Ann Coulter thinks? After 2012 primaries and her Fat man love fest does she have an ounce of credibility?
There are a number of FReepers there including AlexW...
He just went through the edges of another typhoon!

Lots of folks do not have the latest version of Office. Myself, I’m still running Office 2000. Why? ‘cause is does everything I need and them some.
Considering posting your prep list as a .doc. Or failing that, use one of the new fancy Office features and save it as a .pdf.
I thought that hogwash ran it's course weeks ago.
Exactly on point, except we’re way past the tipping point. This may have been the “last chance” but most likely, the George W. Bush administration was the last chance, and he blew it royally.
I tire of her meaningless rants and her dribble, she supported fat man Christie, who may have cost Romney the election, and she supported Romney early in the race instead of a conservative.
She is nothing but a prostitute for the ruling republican leadership. She dated Bill Mahar a POS liberal.
SO nothing this used to be has been has to say is of any interest to this conservative.
Go back to Mahar if he will have you back.
Ms. Coulter has taken a lot of hits here of FR as of late, but in this piece she’s dead right and hitting on all cylinders.
So if you’re one of those “Coulter haters” who just skipped the article and went straight to the replies, I suggest you give it another look...
The article is just pointing out the obvious- we are screwed. The GOP is finished. The snowball is rolling down the hill as fast as it can and nothing is stopping it. The only “immigration reform” we are going to see is blanket amnesty which equals more democrat voters. It would take 10-15 years of pro American constitutional based education in our schools to reverse this trend and we all know that has zero chance of happening.
WAY too little too late.
The reason we lost the election is that 100 million Americans did not vote:
Do the math:
US Population US: 315 million
Illegal/under 18: 95 million
Eligible to vote: 220 million
Voted: 120 million
Screwed all of us: 100 million
So, solve the riddle of why these folks did not vote, and getem to the polls in 2014 and 2016.
I see a huge opportunity for a Real Conservative Party (TEA Party?) to capture the imagination and votes of these folks in 2014 and 2016.
We can save America, but it will not be an easy task!
It’s a good article, reminds me of why I started reading Coulter years ago. I own her books, I like her writing.
The last sentence is pure BS.
There were 6M white voters who abandoned Obama in 2012. Unfortunately, Romney only picked up an additional million or so whites compared with 2008.
The largest pool of untapped voters are whites who sat it out. That's the only place you're going to find those 5M+ votes.
>> Whites are 76 percent of the electorate over the age of 30 and only 58 percent of the electorate under 30
That’s what happens when the white **** slaughter their nascent babies. Oh well, maybe the white guys should court more hispanic women and save the Country... /semi-sarc
[ An irrational statement... ]
Sooo running the inventor of Romney-Care against the inventor of Obama-Care is rational?..
To a RINO it might seem to a good thing to do..
But on a good day a RINO is merely a moderate democrat..
Ann is known for two things pimping the Fatman(flaming liberal) and the Massachusetts liberal..
I was also AND I began to notice that Palin was like an NFL ball carrier that chooses to run out of bounds rather than try to run over the defensive linebacker.
My point: She only takes it so far then she backs off. We need somebody who will actually wield the "terrible swift sword".
There's no one on the stage willing at this point to represent Conservatives by battering head on into the opposition.
No problem - it’s why I list my e-mail or contact me through this medium...I will save it in the 97 version right now and post it under there - listing which version...no problem at all...
The cities rule. The concentrated corruption rules. Other demographics are no longer relevant.
America has already tipped.
To right the balance there must be catastrophe or revolution.
