Sen. Lindsey Graham On NBC:
GOP In ‘Demographic Death Spiral,’
Must Pass Immigration Reform

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/17/2013 9:23:03 AM

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham told David Gregory on Meet the Press Sunday morning that any talk of GOP candidates for the 2016 presidential race was moot if the party didn’t improve its electoral chances by passing the Gang of Eight’s overhaul of the immigration system. “If we don’t pass immigration reform,” Graham said, “if we don’t get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn’t matter who you run in 2016. We’re in a demographic death spiral as a party, and the only way to get back in the good graces with the Hispanic community,

Comments:
Uh no you idiot, the GOP is in a death spiral because there are too many moron RINO´s like you leading the party. I´m sick of seeing him and McCain at the microphone every day.

Anyone who bases their decisions and votes on identity politics is unfit to serve.

Personally I have little respect for anything Lindsey Graham says. In this case he seems to be saying ..... we have been invaded and lost to another country so put up your hands and surrender.

Ms Coulter has published statistics saying the Hispanic vote in the last election wasn´t that significant in the republican loss. I think there are a whole bunch of Hispanic voters who don´t want to provide amnesty to all the illegals.

He is right about the death spiral, he just has the reason backward. If they pass this, I will leave the GOP, as will most of its base.

That may be a good thing though. This divorce is long overdue. I am too embarrassed by the likes of McCain, Grahamnesty, Snow (Ret.), Boehner, and others like Rubio to stay with this party.

Time for the UKIP equivalent movement.

I suggest that this fool look at the numbers regarding the % of the hispanic vote Republicans have received, going back to Reagan.
Hispanics vote for democrats because they are the party of "free stuff".
Graham wants to drive the stake into the heart of Republicans. He is a fool of the first order.

If they are challenging for a Third Party, this new Immigration/Amnesty bill is sure the way to get there. I think this will backfire on the Democrats and Republicans.
Its Party switching time and long overdue. There are a lot of fiscal conservative Democrats out there that cannot bring themselves to vote for a Republican or be associated with them and a new party is just the thing for them to join the Patriotic, fiscal conservative Republicans in a new dance.

While I do agree that the GOP is in very big trouble, even worse trouble is in store for the Dems, due to the fact that they have been aborting their own voters since the 1970´s and are in real danger of becoming a minority party. Any immigration bills they propose are just their attempts to ´refill the tank´ when it comes to voters for their party.

A week or two ago there was a small swearing in ceremony at Aztec Ruins National Monument in NW New Mexico for a handful of Hispanics that pursued citizenship the LAWFUL WAY. What is wrong with the system we already have on the books and enforcing the law. I´m sure that those new citizens that were sworn in after all the time and work they put in to become citizens would be very happy to see just anyone that wanted to come over become a citizen. I think not.

I don´t think Hispanics are as easy to fool or buy as other voting blocs/minorities. Comparatively they are quite entrepreneurial, even when it comes to the drug business. I think the assumption they will automatically vote democratic is questionable. Miss lindsey is not doing her party any favors making stupid statements like this.

So the idea is to compromise your principles causing you to lose the majority of your voting base in order to pander to a group that won´t net you more than 1% in additional votes.

About the only course left is to simply let the Democrats have the country until all the current Republicans retire. Then maybe we can start fresh or maybe not. Continuing down the current path leads to the same place but without the RINO´s out of the game.

In the short-term, after facilitating the liberal Democrat designed amnesty and path to citizenship bill, the percentage of the Hispanic or Latino vote going to Republicans may well go up a few points but not enough to make any real difference in national elections. The total vote will probably be a wash, as by facilitating that liberal Democrat bill, the Republicans will have enraged a good portion of their conservative voter base to the point that they will stop voting for the Republicans out right, or mount all sorts of primary challenges against establishment Republicans running for re-election.

In ten years the amnesty and path to citizenship bill is designed to either legalize or allow into the USA about 32-33 million aliens, most who will be poor and uneducated. Liberal Democrat aligned ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups would then be funded through that bill to essentially chaperone that massive foreign population group through a Democrat designed path to citizenship, leading to the vast majority registering as new mostly socialist oriented Democrat voters. After that the Republicans will be swamped out of being able to win any future national elections by those tens of millions of new foreign born Democrat voters. The result will be essentially a one party liberal Democrat run federal government on into the future.

I believe the technical term for what Senator Graham advises is "pandering." It is a time-tested and effective political practice. It works. The problem in this case is that there is no way Republicans can out-pander Democrats or even catch up with them when it comes to identity politics and cultural Marxism. Anything we can pander, they, the Leftists, can pander bigger and better. Lindsey Graham is incredibly naive if he thinks pandering to Hispanics is going to win or retain their votes. All it will do is lose Republicans votes from their own base. It might be suggested that pandering, like charity, should begin at home. The Republican Establishment is prepared to pander to everyone and everything but its own core supporters. This is a process of political metamorphosis whose logical end result is the transformation of the Republican party itself into a branch of the Democratic party.

Crude pandering and abandoning one´s values is no way to run a genuinely Republican party. If we are indeed fated to become extinct we can at least strive for death with dignity, i.e. by holding fast to what we believe to be true and right.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.
