that is easily conquered by getting strong armed latinos to become pubs...

we are not ever ever going to change the govt largess or the sloth class....

can we settle for lower taxes, less govt regulation, protected gun rights and religous freedom?..

can we encourage industry and innovation that perhaps we can make work worth it again?.

if we believe in those things, we're going to have to somehow in someway engage latinos...

change is inevitable...even without illegals, the latinos that are native to this land are they themselves outpopulating the "white" population...

I'll bet the American Indians felt the same way about us...and Americans hated the Irish and the Italians coming in droves....

it is what it is....period...hard to accept, but that's the way I see it...

This is Dem Nate Silver’s take on the 2014 elections. I thought it was a pretty interesting take on the Republicans picking up the senate in 2014.

Montana along with West Virginia and South Dakota — two other red states where an incumbent Democrat has retired and where the Democrats have not identified a strong candidate to replace them – gives Republicans a running start. Republicans could then win three more seats from among red states like Louisiana and Arkansas, where vulnerable Democratic incumbents are on the ballot, or they could take aim at two purple states, Iowa and Michigan, where Democrats have retired. More opportunities could also come into play if the national environment becomes more favorable to Republicans (such as because of a further slide in Mr. Obama’s approval ratings). Meanwhile, while Kentucky and Georgia are possibly vulnerable, Republicans have few seats of their own to defend; unlike in 2012, they can focus almost entirely on playing offense.

A race-by-race analysis of the Senate, in fact, suggests that Republicans might now be close to even-money to win control of the chamber after next year’s elections. Our best guess, after assigning probabilities of the likelihood of a G.O.P. pickup in each state, is that Republicans will end up with somewhere between 50 and 51 Senate seats after 2014, putting them right on the threshold of a majority.
