This message isn't entirely racist to me. Like you said, it could be a bit racist to some but the message goes right to the heart of the issue of so many that just didn't bother to vote. Who'll ever know, if he's right about why we lost, if the right person is in office now? I still consider that the election was not a true one because of the off shore voters being disenfranchied. I think the votes of our servicemen were as important as any votes but many were denied a voting event. How many lost votes could have helped the GOP? Is it possible that the servicemen's votes could have tipped the election in our favor? I'll always wonder about this. We heard so much about how the voters in the south were being disenfranchised by issues of producing ID at the polls-phooy-they come up with ID for many reasons that have nothing to do with voting. This is the type of issue and the way it got slid on by to give the poor helpless voters their way that would make alot of folks just throw their hands up and refuse to vote. These voters don't feel like their votes willl do any good. There's been so many documentations of voter fraud, yet the left denies any such incidents. Rant over!
I think we need to get past voter fraud, it there we know it. What killed us was the people that did not vote. Remember about 43% of Americans who could have voted did not or was not allowed to vote. (our service men and woman)
The number is even higher than that.More and more people are seeing the political process for what it is... and saying to it, "check please."http://lewrockwell.com/orig12/bowman-joel7.1.1.html
Here's an idea. Stop blaming Romney's loss on the black vote - 13% of the population, and a far smaller percentage of the voting public - and Hispanics - 8% of the Population and again a smaller percentage of the voting public (blacks voters and Hispanic voters - for a number of reasons - are no where near their population figures). If you want to blame someone, blame SINGLE WHITE FEMALES. I realize it's easier to blame Obozo on blacks and Hispanics - rather than your girlfriend or your daughter - because you want to remain in their good graces. However, even the idea of black or Hispanic votes, is based upon the idea that both ethnic groups voted as a group - an idea promoted by the Dems and the media because it serves their purposes. To note that it also serves the purposes of racist bigots, is simply repeating myself.
Non Party affiliations and Libertarians can account for those numbers. Myself I have a different slant on voting, I'm pushing 65 and know first hand what has happened to our cities due to the politicians allowing so many illegals in. No one seems to care how much damage it did to the election process and you can bet it was by design. All you have to do is look at the numbers for the answer. I could go on and on about how the entire face of my home town "Houston" changed in a very short 30 years, but I won't since so many people are so sensitive. It really hasn't anything to do with disliking or downing another race, it is all about balance and following the laws. I find it laughable when I switch on the TV and listen to what these hypocrites are saying in Washington.
Thank TL, I was being nice with the 43%.
You replying to the topic or my reply? Just want to make sure I'm not being labeled as a racist bigot. My number one complaint is about the servicemen that were DENIED a vote. It has become too darned easy for this administration to cancel out anyone or anything that might hinder their agenda. This stuff of not being able to get the ballots to the right places and the voting done and sent back on time is ageless. My husband's last active duty was in 1992 and it was going on then too. This lack of being able to vote in major elections happened to him 4 times in all in his twenty years of service. Nothing is being done ahead of voting time to resolve this issue and it just keeps going on. On the other hand, the south gets major attention by asking for ID to be able to vote. The resolution for ID didn't get passed soon enough for the new law to be valid for this voting. Guess what? The next election will see just as much skepticism as this one because the new law still has that loophole of a person just not able enough to get a damned picture taken for voting purposes. This is, for the most part, a big ole' stinking lie. For the record, I didn't say anything about blacks or hispanics or any other label someone might be wearing. My concern is for the people in my state, as mixed up and crazy as it is, we're all in the same boat. My major concern is that NOONE who wants to vote isn't denied. More than anything I want a true vote.On another voting issue, and I may be able to pull up the interview from archives, i'll try anyway, we had a mayor up for re-election in one of our smaller cities not too long ago. There were alot of complaints about this mayor from the early part of her term as mayor and it raised alot of questions for alot of our viewing area of local news, so an extension of the tv news broadcast called "on Your Side" tried to interview her about some of the allegations and she made a mockery of the whole incident. She's been relieved of her term, a new mayor has been installed and the former mayor was brought up on criminal charges-some of it was hiding votes in her office.
However, even the idea of black or Hispanic votes, is based upon the idea that both ethnic groups voted as a group - an idea promoted by the Dems and the media because it serves their purposes. To note that it also serves the purposes of racist bigots, is simply repeating myself.
Not you.Actually I was referring to the Dems and the media.
