Demography Is Destiny

The box the Democrats have is that running a non-minority (i.e. white) candidate will not generate the Democrat voter enthusiasm among minorities that Obama did. Thus, if Democrats want to keep minority enthusiasm for them, they have to continually run minority candidates. Goodbye Joe BIden, Hillary Clinton, etc. I'm sure the white Democrats desiring to run for the President won't like that box, but this looks like the Democrat demographic problem.

Denir dude, I like some of R.Paul's thoughts, mainly on economics, but he is wrong on several other main issues. In his fairwell speech on the House floor, he said something-to-the-effect that "wars always reduce freedom." Oh really, did the American Civil War reduce freedom; did the American Revolutionary War reduce freedom? Wtf? Also, the drug legalization thing is just insane. We had the 'legalization package' going until about the turn of the last century, and about half the country, including housewives, got addicted to heroine. No, my Paul-bot friend, we don't need to apologize to R.Paul except on the issue of economics.

All we have gained from the war on drugs is a huge police state that confiscates property of suspected dealers and turns masses into criminals. I believe we would be much better served by the states deciding drug criminalization laws, and people being forced to suffer the consequences of their poor decisions. They will never change if they don't have to. Deny any social services to addicts, regulate and tax outlets, and inform potential customers of the risks of their decisions. This will also defund cartels and gangs that currently thrive on the black market drugs.

The Civil War was unnecessary, reduced freedom, slaves would've been freed soon without the Civil War !

new war-related-laws are always simultaneously passed that take away our liberty !

Massively more downsides to Fake War on Drugs than legalizing it, 2012 updated-advanced-modern-education-science will make a big difference in dealing-with-curing-misuse, compared to uninformed early-1900's !

Yes, my Tea Party friend, we should-need to apologize to R-Paul, his supporters on all of his issues, he's right, we really need their votes !

Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they've persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas.

Democrats haven't changed anyone's mind. They changed the people.

More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points -- the widest margin since 1984.

But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate. Not only that, but the non-white electorate is far more Democratic than...
