Skip to comments.To avoid being the 21st century Whig Party, GOP must forget minorities and focus on White votes

Weve heard ad nauseam the advice from our good friend Chuck Schumer about how the Republicans can win the White House back if they would only grant amnesty to millions of new Democrat voters and erase our southern border. This is of course a lie designed to destroy the Republican Party akin to deliberately directing a lost motorist to take a washed out bridge during a roaring Noreaster.
Because what Democrats say and do is so often Satanic and purposefully dishonest heres some advice from a rank and file conservative who actually wants the Republican Party to survive and grow.
The road to future political dominance is...

The GOP is not going to get the black vote and only about 30% of the (legal) Hispanic vote, no matter what. So why do these idiots keep coming back to pander to them?
Agreed. And here’s the place to start...
The GOP must explain the traditional American values, and people will come along.
I disagree. The GOP must forget about race and articulate values - especially freedom. We cannot outbid the Democrats in bribing voters with other people’s money. We should not become a right-wing version of the Democrats - just as racist but pro-white instead of anti-white. We need to articulate why freedom is better than being pets kept by a self-anointed ruling class. We need to articulate why the rule of law is better than the left’s government by mob intimidation. We need someone who will reach out to the swing voters and explain why limited government is to their advantage. Most of all, we need someone who will not compromise with evil, someone who will slash Big Government instead of merely promising to slow the rate of growth.
What’s a “white vote”?
Do they mean “those who hold traditional Western/American values”?
I think they do - they’re just tacking on skin color to try to associate those values with... dum dum dum... “racism!”
US social equilibrium was auto-correcting nicely until the Clintons came along and began trolling for âsure votesâ by resuscitating old and previously rectified race issues in America.
THEY are wholly to blame... “O” just continued where THEY where shameless and selfish enough to begin!
The GOP needs to have an agenda and be able to explain it in language that appeals to all voters who are naturally conservative, who want a decent society and a robust, easily participated in, economy.
The GOP has won as high as 56% of the Hispanic vote that was Protestant (2004), and in 2012, in an election that they couldn’t lose, they only got 950,000 more total votes than they had in 2008, in an election that they couldn’t win.
Those two things indicate that the lack of a core agenda, and the inability to reach the decent public, and the inability to debate the left, are the issues, not deciding to go pure white, (whatever that means).
The GOP’s real problem, is that they are at war with core Americanism, not representing it, they are the party of Bill Clinton’s 1990s politics.
That is terrible advice. I am sick of racial politics, no matter the party. The GOP needs to focus in LIBERTY and Constitutional limits of government, not race.
Drop all this race crap and be a party of individual freedom.
You make an excellent observation in #8.
That would basically be an appeal to white people.
It has nothing to do with race, per se, but overwhelmingly it shakes out that way.
The Whigs lost the mission and lost members. Only the hangers on remain once the principles have been lost; they have nowhere else to go.
The GOPe sucked the principles out of the Republican party and have replaced them with their kinder, gentler flavored version of the progressive, PC, one party, anti-Constitution, one world new world order belief system, and it's crony capitalism, chaos and control.
The GOPe sold US out and has the Republican party Whigging out!
C'ya...don't wanna B'ya!
The GOP needs to focus on conservative votes, not skin color.
But that’s not going to happen. Most GOP elected officials are no different than most Democrat elected officials: the number one concern is self-concern and being re-elected. Everything else is a distant second, particularly doing what is really right for our country and the long-term well-being of our citizens.
Conservative/Republican families at least deserve equal treatment.
Subsidies for poor Democrats lead to more Democrats, while responsible conservatives struggle and resist the urge to fill the world with children they can’t take care of.
Of course conservatives are still required to take care of the children of others while they decline to have their own.
It’s a vicious cycle. The more responsible people are in not having children, the more resources they have to be taken from them and given to less responsible people.
Unfortunately the welfare state isn’t going to disappear, so the best we can do in the short term is to try and level the playing field. Tax payers at a minimum should be able to take credits for the money they spend raising and feeding their own children. They’re already asked to give money away to other families. Shouldn’t they get credit for the money they give to themselves to take care of their families?
I’d go further and give every family the same subsidies no matter the income. There’s competition out their for resources, and a subsidy for one group means another group must struggle. What’s worse, these responsible families are forced to struggle against themselves as the money taken from them in taxes is used so that another can out-compete them in the market for resources and services! The only winners in this battle are the rich and poor. The middle is squeeze mercilessly.
How about we quit worrying about what color our voters are and stick to ideas and principles?
This is stupid. Whites aren’t homogeneous politically.
The Republican Party needs to embrace Conservatism and ignore race altogether.
The GOP has conspired to create an anti-white racist govt. for 50 years now via Affirmative Action.
Now that Hispanics are “white”, yes.
