The coming demographic tidal wave I feared has officially arrived. Barack Obama, despite all his failures and treasonous scandals, actually increased his vote with minorities. As I said months ago, we cannot continue to lose over 90% of the black vote, 75% of the Latino vote, and expect to win. Its too much to overcome being Democrats continue to appeal to more women while still getting a sizable share of white voters. When I touted Marco Rubio and Allen West for VP it was exactly because of these inescapable facts. And for the record, I love Paul Ryan and think hes a true conservative and a man of integrity. However, when we lose Florida, and his influence doesnt even bring home Wisconsin, theres really no demographic advantage to his candidacy. We should have handily won this election - Obama was strangled by historic failures not seen in 70 years yet we were overrun like Custer on his way to a gun show.
Even though Im a devout Tea Party member, attacking the GOP, starting a new party, will not change the magnitude or reality of these new demographics. We would have lost this race regardless of the candidate Newt, Ron Paul, Santorum or the campaign tactics of choice. I actually thought Romneys team did a magnificent job and exceeded my expectations on a number of occasions, issues and levels. Yet, that is all garnish for the contrarians, the card carrying cynics, for the only way we can continue to compete nationally is to one, educate and network with minorities\- showing them how a vibrant America is the best way to achieve the American Dream, rather than suffocating beneath a destitute, socialist nation - and two, run more strong minority candidates. The truth is Obama won because a super majority of minorities didnt give a damn about his failures, his abuses, or his smug, juvenile behavior. The fact the man hadnt passed a budget in years, let alone possessed a viable plan for the next four, didnt even ring a bell. They chose him because he was a minority who spewed divisive propaganda that made them despise America and the wealthy because as victims they identified with neither; regardless of liberty, the Constitution, or the reality they were attacking that which they wanted to so badly to become: successful. Equally appalling, those whites who voted for Obama tossed aside all common sense, a sense of duty to hold all our politicians accountable, in lieu of good ole fashioned, partisan politics. Our nation is on the precipice of financial ruin, American men were sacrificed on the doorstep of Islam, and all they see is that jackass on that ballot! How utterly commendable and patriotic!
The truth is, and I hate to say this, the America we love may be over. It kills me to say this, but the writing is on the wall; both in what we value and the standards, or lack there of, we expect from our elected leaders. How does Allen West - an upstanding, educated, experienced man who served his country and the Constitution - lose to a sniveling snot whose claim to fame is partying and a wealthy father? Its nothing short of criminal. The foundation of America is crumbling because progressives are firmly entrenched in our educational system, the media shamelessly promotes the liberal agenda and ignores the truth at the expense of the countys well being, God is under attack, and Democrats can maintain loyalty amongst their base by concocting Orwellian campaign themes that systematically condition their base with outrageous claims and distortions. Fact checking is officially an extinct art. If Bush happened to be president during the past four years the media would have literally eaten him alive. Obamas tenure was worse by every measured statistic he had no accomplishments to offer except blame, incompetence and bitterness - yet over half of the electorate was convinced it was Bushs fault and that Obama was the right man to lead America. That, my friends, says it all! Therefore, amidst our delusion and our mourning for the nation we so dearly love, it is obvious we have but one final choice to make: win, concede, or secede?
Just like the U.S. with Al Queda prior to 9.11.01, they were at war with us but we were not at war with them.
I think you’ve written an excellent piece.
Something is wrong that goes way beyond Romney/Ryan, although FR will be filled with those who will obsess otherwise.
Win, concede or secede?
Right now since we can’t seem to win and concede isn’t in my dictionary, I would pick secede.
Sigh. Even though I live in Texas, I don’t have control over that.
Racist minorities are the shocktroops for communists.
It is bitter/sweet being a romantic idealist.
“When I touted Marco Rubio and Allen West for VP it was exactly because of these inescapable facts.”
Wouldn’t have mattered one bit. Minorities aren’t going to back us even if we ran a gay black man with a female latino midget for VP. They want socialism, so unless we want to compromise and promise it to them, we aren’t getting their votes by pandering.
West lost. Love lost.
Blacks vote Dem over everything. Free stuff.
Thank you so much!
“Blacks vote Dem over everything.”
They did the same thing to Clarence Thomas when he was appointed to the Supreme Court. Instead of looking up to him as an inspiration, they called him an Uncle Tom.
most voters are stupid and clueless..and they like being told what to do....
nope...I think its game..match..set...
my people...my values are gone...
the only thing I see helping...this in the vein of Chrissy Matthews...is that a massive WW with a draft will make many sit up and take notice...also, when the Latinos and the blacks increase their gang wars, something has got to give...
maybe at that time, the Asians and the Jews will finally come home to conservatism...
you see, the country is a mess.....
I am all in for Secession. Of course, it will never happen. God, I wish I was wrong...
I believe enough of them realize in a very real sense it’s reverse slavery and reparations. That is the root of “revenge”.
If the gop really wants to expand its’ base then they should stop pissing on unions. States like MN IA OH might come back into reach.
Latino's do not like the conservative approach to immigration control. What would you do; amnesty to get the vote? That's the only way latinos will vote for a conservative (they get too many bennies from liberal administrations to vote against "Santa").
So, unless you're advocating diluting conservatisim even more than it has been, you are S.O.L..
