|I appreciate all that you are saying, Farm, but I think the fact that Obama is Black turned out the Black vote in record numbers in 2008, which tipped the scales. Yes, I certainly agree that millions upon millions of Whites would still have voted for the Democratic candidate, come hell or high water, but with the White vote evenly split between normal, descent conservatives on one side, and liberals, radical leftists, and self-loathers on the other, it didn't take much to swing the election in 2008. This is where the Black vote came in. |
Looking back, President Bush barely defeated Gore and Kerry in 2000 and 2004. Many Blacks stayed home for those elections. A higher Black turnout in those years could have easily tipped Florida, Virginia, and/or Ohio to Gore and Kerry in 2000 and 2004, any one of which would have given the election to the Democrats.
I don't think the Democratic Party can ever go back to a heterosexual White male candidate now. They've proven that they can easily carry the leftist White vote with a radical Black candidate; one which fires up and turns out the Black, homo, Muslim, and Hispanic/Latino/Mestizo/illegal voting blocs. To that end, the DNC's candidates from now on will be Blacks, homos, illegals, Hispanics, and Muslims.
I think the big question now is has Ohio gone permanently Democratic? The same could be asked about Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Florida.
These are indeed very frightening times, my friend. Too many in the Republican Party sat on their damned hands, kept their mouths shut, and ultimately voted for social and fiscal measures introduced by Democrats that have ruined our country. Now, the RNC is between a rock and a hard place. For years, they tacitly and actively facilitated the presence of millions of undesirables who hate everything decent that the GOP stands for (or at least once stood for). If they don't move to the left and pacify the miscreants in the years ahead -- when millions of illegal anchor descendants and other future felons grow up and begin voting -- they'll lose. Of course, if they do that, descent conservative Whites will no longer have any voice at all in government; not that we do now.
Sadly, I can easily see the GOP supporting gay marriage, amnesty for all illegals, affirmative action, abortion, and more tolerance for minority crime soon in the years ahead. Very disturbing.
