The GOP’s demographics problem
The Boston Globe, by Renée Loth

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/13/2012 9:09:10 AM

If demographics is destiny, the Republican Party has a rendezvous with irrelevance — unless its policies change. This is the message some Republican leaders have been sending in the closing weeks of the presidential campaign. “The demographics race we’re losing badly,” Senator Lindsey Graham recently told the Washington Post with characteristic bluntness. “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” The numbers tell the tale. Minorities have accounted for 85 percent of the country’s population growth over the past decade, according to the US Census Bureau. A record 24 million Hispanics

If Lindsay Graham made that comment about angry white guys, he is a big part of the problem. The solution is to convince the hard working and family oriented citizens of all races that rampant socialism is not in their best interest.

Agree w/ #2. And once Obama is off the scene will blacks continue to vote 96% for the Democrat? Latinos will follow the pattern of immigrant Italians IMO, and eventually split between the two parties.

The GOP doesn't need to look to Lindsey Graham for answers. The GOP might insist on educating the public in the constitution and capitalism, rather than marxism.

Lindsey Graham says?
You HAVE to be joking!
Lindsey Graham and his undercover boss, John McCain, are two of the biggest offenders of mealy-mouthism. They are masters of Political Correctness, and that PC includes treating black people with a reverence similar to that given the Pope. Not daring to be an 'angry white guy' even cost McCain the presidency, placing the evil one in our Oval Office.

The GOP has a Doofus RINO Problem. Exhibit A: Lindsey Graham.

Unlike the black population (sad, but true), the GOP can definitely win a huge share, and possibly eventually a majority of the Hispanic population. They share many of America's traditional values: nuclear family, Christian beliefs, hard work, etc. Those of us who live among large Hispanic populations know and come to respect such families. In time, they too will vote with us.

Let's say for one minute, the writer is correct in what was predicted. The GOP withers away due to it's unwillingness to compromise it's basic principles of conservatism and tradition. It doesn't take someone who spent three years in the third grade to see just what would happen to this nation were that to happen. All one has to do is witness the travails of Kalifornia. That will be the future for every state that remians in the Union.

NO! The GOP does not have demographics problem. What the GOP has is an EDUCATION problem.

These minorities etc are democrats ONLY because the democrats have managed to convince them that they will take care of them and that republicans really really dont like you.

In fact, if the American electorate was actually TAUGHT and not indoctrinated on economics, business, law and foreign affairs, democrats would never win another election outside of Berkely.

My thanks to the many Ldotters who beat me to it, including OP. I had to jump on this one, because it is ONLY the lying media, the lying professors in academia, and the lying Hollywood elite who are the cause of minorities continually voting against their own self-interests.

Conservatism is their salvation. Cultural renewal is their rescue. Returning to the true God is the only way forward to peace, prosperity, justice, genuine brotherhood.

There is no such thing as Compassionate Liberalism or Compassionate Progressivism or Compassionate Marxism.

The Lindsey Grahams and John McCains have the problem, they live in the past, they think they are in control of the GOP, and they fail to recognize the grass roots efforts and sensibilities of the TEA party members who are filling the lower ranks of the GOP, and starting to work our way up.

They think they can pat us on the head and say, "there there, don't worry your pretty little head about the big boy things" and we will just tuck our tails between our legs and go lay in a corner and keep our mouths shut.

Well, it is rapidly becoming apparent that we are beginning to outnumber them, and if they don't get with the program, we might just leave them behind.

FTA " Minorities have accounted for 85 percent of the country’s population growth over the past decade, according to the US Census Bureau."

Almost all of whom are immigrants or their children. So what does the GOP leadership do when in power? Why, open borders of course: effectively a blind eye to illegal immigration. And more and more legal immigration. And more and more compassionate welfare programs for immigrants.

Anyone see signs of insanity with these policies?

Whatever communications problems the conservatives in the GOP may have had in the past are now being corrected through the facts, stats and America's lessons learned from history found readily available on conservative talk radio, the internet & FOX! ...And never misunderestimate the common sense and passion for freedom of the American people! Enough of us still do know & cherish the principles of liberty are uniquely secured in our U.S. Constitution and we intend to keep it that way with our votes!


But the dem's problem is apparently insurmountable because their tactics and policies conflict with both the Constitution AND the sensibilities of the American people. Lefty/lib radical activist statist clones & drones of liberalism have taken over that party and they are marching to a different drummer! The 0bama's even have the audacity to brag about getting their radical personal agenda, ''around,'' the U.S. Congress!?!!! Has such Presidential disrespect for the elected representatives of the American voters ever been exhibited before? Outrageous!

America loves liberty and hates tyranny!

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC.

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
