Your post is one-sided hypocritical junk. Why aren't the Dems obliged to empower immigrants to be self sufficient and LEGAL? Democrats should respect the law and work with the GOP to close the borders. Every country in the world does this but us. Even the UN election monitors were stunned that many states in the US didn't require a photo ID to vote. The Democrats want to let as many illegals as they can into the country because that is a new source of votes for them and a new underclass over which they can rule. The GOP HAS opened its doors to minorities, but apparently most minorities prefer to support the Democrats who'll give them hand-outs rather than Republicans who will expect them to EARN what they get.

Empowerment is giving people the tools to be self-sufficent. It's not just words but deeds. It's not a handout instead it's teaching someone to independent.

There was a news story about a boy who wanted to help his family. A local business owner loan him the cart to sell hot-dogs before getting shut down by the city.That's empowerment teaching someone to be independent.

Yes, the RP doesn't do a great job of outreach in communities. But I doubt that would help. The community wants handouts, and a Repub that tells them to stand on their own two feet will be booed or worse. The masses are simply so ignorant that they can't see that conservative values would make their lives better. Instead, they buy the propaganda from the left.

Wouldn't you want to be the party that empower minorities and immigrants to be self-sufficient which lines with your values?

The DP gets credit for going out into the community and promoting the DP whereas the RP don't.

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...
