    Political trends are pendular, population demographics are NOT.

    You pea brains are toast...but you reap what you sew. Your hate, racism, xenophobia, homophobia and 'Southern strategy' will bring you exactly what you deserve; permanent minority status, condemnation and irrelevance.

    Michael Gerson: GOP committing political suicide

    Republicans have now sent three clear signals to Hispanic voters: Proposition 187 in California, attempting to deny illegal immigrants health care and public education; the immigration debate of 2006, dominated by strident Republican opponents of reform; and now the Arizona immigration law. According to a 2008 study by the Pew Hispanic Center, 49 percent of Hispanics said that Democrats had more concern for people of their background; 7 percent believed this was true of Republicans. Since the Arizona controversy, this gap can only have grown larger. In a matter of months, Hispanic voters in Arizona have gone from being among the most pro-GOP in the nation to being among the most hostile.

    Immigration issues are emotional and complex, but this must be recognized for what it is: political suicide. Consider that Hispanics now make up 40 percent of the K-12 students in Arizona, 44 percent in Texas, 47 percent in California, 54 percent in New Mexico. Whatever temporary gains Republicans might make feeding resentment of this demographic shift, the party identified with that resentment will eventually be voted into singularity. In a matter of decades, the Republican Party could cease to be a national party.

    Nope! Some of you don't get that many, many hispanics ARE republicans - and THESE hispanics are the ones who VOTE!!! The majority are against illegal entry and do not want these illegals to be rewarded for jumping the fence or the line! Republicans are more about FREEDOM and LIBERTY; Democrats are more about SOCIALISM and FREEBIES.

    Which doesn't explain the popularity of Arizona's new immigration law.

    Honest to God... people are TIRED of the race-baiting and divisiveness of Democrats.
    You've got Eric Holder and Janet Napalitano who haven't even bothered to read the bill, and Barack Obama himself telling latinos that they're going to be arrested taking their kids for ice cream. :rolleyes:

    This is NOTHING but Plantation Politics, the creation of a racial wedge in order to divide Americans into useful demographics. The Dems in power could give a rat's ass less about what's in the best interest of this nation as a whole. They don't care about latinos. They don't care about blacks. They don't care about national security. All they care about is fomenting division that they can then take political advantage of.

    It's disgusting. But that's the Uniter-in-Chief for ya though.... all about uniting Democrats, and to fuck with the country and the rule of law.

    Let's just say I am not too overly concerned tht the GOP will cease to exist in the next twenty years.

    Not that it wouldn't be nice to see both parties go the way of the Dodo, but it isn't going to happen.

    What IS disgusting; YOUR projection. You are so self centered and blind to your lack of caring about anyone but YOU, that everyone ELSE must ALSO be as devoid of morals...

    It's a twist of the transactional analysis 'I'm OK, you're OK'. In your case it's 'I'm a scum bag, so everyone ELSE must be a scum bag too'

    You stand with RACE-BAITERS and think you're qualified to discuss morals?
    .... that's rich. Really, it is. :lol::lol::lol:

    These fuckers have been sorting PEOPLE into racial, ethnic, and gender categories, pouring on fertilizer in order to create growth of bias and hard-feelings along those lines... and then coming back every two years to harvest the vote since they lost the Civil Rights battle in the 1960's. Only useful idiots believe they care about "people".

    We didn't see the Democrats in power stand with the State of Arizona or the Rule of Law. We didn't see them stand for equal treatment and protection of all CITIZENS. What we saw was a deliberate distortion of a state's immigration law in order to foment racial division, and ALL for the sake of political gain.

    The idea that somebody like you, who stands with lawlessness, who stands with those who would gladly subjugate our natural rights and our security for the sake of tumult and division on the off-chance it would result in more political power and lucre for THEMSELVES.... the idea that YOU would have anything to say to me about "morals" just shows your total ignorance.
    You wouldn't know morality or honor if they bit you on your stupid ass.
