Why Hispanics Don’t Vote
for Republicans

National Review, by Heather Mac Donald

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/7/2012 1:22:50 PM

The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population. If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out of a belief that only

Well, the illegals don't. The legals are another matter and do.

So Heather if I ditch my "neanderthal" views, you will have no problem in me coming into your office and taking your job and paycheck just because I think I want it?

Bringing the failed social policies of the third world to the US. Of course they vote Democrat, it reminds them of home. The Democrats know this too, that's why they keep encouraging them to come here...and vote.

I actually agree, in part. We need some kind of immigration reform--not because it's such a good thing, but because this issue is killing the Republicans. Bush, by the way, did very well with Hispanics and won two terms.

So, if Republicans told all Mexicans to "come on in", came out in approval for abortion and free birth control, handed out free phones, then the people would love us?
NO..it is the ROT of the democrats that has eaten the brains of voters.
Our convention represented the best and brightest members of our party, which included hispanics, blacks, women..who came from nothing, had parents who sacrificed so they could achieve..traditional family values..THAT IS WHAT democrats spurn in today's Amerika.

This will be the ultimate Siren song for RINOs in the coming years, luring them into the rocks. Yes, just open all our borders and let millions come in unrestricted. Idiots. That would seal our fate for the next century if not forever. Just who do you think all those immigrants would vote for? What a joke.

Republicans are the ones who put the Civil Rights Act over the top. And yet we're the racists. Robert Byrd was a former member of the KKK and leader of the Dems. But we're the racists.

We might as well sign on for amnesty and money for the Mexicans, and they'll love us just like the blacks.

Let decent, Americanized, contributing illegals, those who perhaps were brought over at a young age, get in line with other immigrants for a chance at citizenship. It should not be for those who come here, refuse to learn English and then get welfare and free education for their kids.

The immigration system needs to get back to the gainful employment or sponsor system. No immigrant should be a burden on America. Citizens should not be burdens, for that matter.

What does the media want? That will be the ultimate outcome. Entertainment is education/brainwashing and neocommunists have owned all media for 50 years. NO amount of pain or blatant constitutional abuse will change things, only actual facts/education will make the public demand the truth. Everything else will be upside down even if the truth is obvious.

The Republicans would be committing long-term political suicide by going along with the liberal Democrats to grant what amounts to amnesty and "a path to citizenship" to the many millions of illegal aliens here now. "A path to citizenship" is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually turning millions of legalized aliens into liberal Democrat voters.

Most illegal aliens are poor, low wage earners, with limited educations, and with big families, who come from socialist oriented countries. Most have no bottom line tax liability and receive the EITC and child tax credits in big numbers.

Once legalized they would be accessing and seeking all sorts of government benefits and welfare programs including the social security disability program. They would be liberal Democrat voters in massive numbers once given US voting rights. The liberal Democrats recognize those facts and is why they always oppose and sabotage all seemingly effective immigration law enforcement efforts.

Neanderthal rules, Heather? Try being a Guatemalan sneaking into Mexico for a job. After they catch them they beat the hell out of them and then dump them back inside of their country. Sometimes they kill them. Nobody can immigrate to Mexico.

'Hispanic' is a word made up by the US gov.

Those that vote for dems think it translates to free.

We need a freeze on all immigration until millions of Americans go back to work.

In the raft of recent retirement announcements on Capitol Hill, none may be more important than those of Reps. Tom Latham (R-Iowa) and George Miller (D-Calif.). The two couldn’t be more different. One is a quiet, conservative Midwesterner with a penchant for golf and cigarettes; the other a garrulous California liberal with a fiery streak. What Latham and Miller share is the ability to give wise counsel to the two most powerful figures in the House, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).Each is first among equals as a trusted confidant to his party’s leader.

The Obama-Bush Nexus

Our current president and his predecessor in the Oval Office are typically cast as opposites, antonyms, not just far apart on an ideological spectrum but cats of wholly different stripes. Barack Obama: lyrical, professorial. George Bush: allergic to any glimmer of intellectualism. Obama: head. Bush: gut. Obama: city. Bush: country. But as I read David Remnick’s widely discussed profile of Obama in this week’s New Yorker, I was struck by something that the two men have in common, an overlooked overlap that perhaps suggests what it now takes to get to the White House and why we wind up with

You probably don´t know who Reverend Michael King, Jr was.

Martin Luther, of course, was a German monk, a professor theology and iconic figure of the 16th century reform movement of Christianity, also called the Protestant Reformation.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama honored Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of service Monday by helping a soup kitchen prepare its daily meals and a host of administration figures fanned out across the capital to appear at holiday events. Obama took his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha to DC Central Kitchen, which is a few minutes away from the White House by presidential motorcade. They joined an assembly line that was churning out burritos. Asked what the burritos were being stuffed with, Obama said it looked like lamb. It actually was beef in a sauce, along with unidentified vegetables

On the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving, Barack Obama sat in the office cabin of Air Force One wearing a look of heavy-lidded annoyance. The Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic achievement and, for all its limitations, the most ambitious social legislation since the Great Society, half a century ago, was in jeopardy. His approval rating was down to forty per cent—lower than George W. Bush’s in December of 2005, when Bush admitted that the decision to invade Iraq had been based on intelligence that “turned out to be wrong.” Also, Obama said thickly, “I’ve got a fat lip.” That morning,

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man.
