    Blue collar workers (of all races) aren't exactly flocking to the polls to vote for free trade, outsourcing, Forever Wars and tax cuts for billionaires and multinational corporations. Who could possibly have predicted that????

    Don't those dumb peasants realize that the wealth trickles down? Huge tax cuts for billionaires benefit everyone!! I know that, because Milton Friedman says so. I read it in an article on American Thinker. Anyone who disagrees with me is a Hillary supporting socialist.


    I know what will really get those blue collar workers fired up for the GOP!

    Let's privatize Social Security and implement a lifetime $ cap for MediCare benefits! These clever free market solutions will really get those blue collar workers excited to vote GOP! :animlol:

    Also, let's invade Iran! Those blue collar workers will be so excited to send their kids to die or get maimed in a new and glorious phase of the Middle East Forever War! Those blue collar workers will be sure to vote for a platform like this!


    African-Americans and Hispanics mostly vote in their own ethnic interest, as a bloc.

    There's nothing wrong with that; they are voting the way they feel benefits their ethnic group as a whole.


    White people should start doing the same.

    That's why Trump has been so successful. He is the first politician in many decades to (more or less) openly say "hey white people! I care about your interests!"

    That's why Trump won mostly white, blue collar states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, etc. He also almost won Minnesota.

    complacency is a disease. that and stupid independents and common Democrat thinking workers. thats what took out Gov. Walker in Wisconsin, he had our state out of the mud and working again. but Main Stream Media told the clueless that we needed a Change and Democrats could bring us that change. Morons!

    There are several reasons why most minorites vote D:

    1. They view white people as oppressors/their enemy, due to decades of leftist propoganda telling them to hate white people. Since the Democrats are anti-white, a lot of minorites vote Dem, because they feel that anything that is bad for white people must be good for minorities. Again, this is due to decades of leftist anti-white propoganda.

    2. Most ethnic minorites tend to be lower income, and lower income people benefit from Big Government assistance such as housing grants/Section 8, food stamps and EBT, Medicaid, disability payments for family members who aren't working, etc.

    3. As Mitt Romney pointed out in 2012, almost half of Americans don't actually pay taxes. Someone who doesn't pay taxes doesn't give a sh*t about tax cuts.

    4. The benefits of the "booming economy" aren't experienced or enjoyed by a lot of minorites, who still live in poverty. A bunch of new minimum wage jobs available at the Amazon warehouse stocking shelves is hardly something to celebrate with fireworks and BBQ. For them, the economy isn't booming. They are stuck with the same bottom of the barrel minimum wage jobs. That's what a lot of "fiscal conservatives" don't understand. Minorities want good jobs, not sh*t jobs that pay minimum wage, while CEOs make millions.

    5. In the case of the middle class Hispanics who own businesses, they still have an ethnic bond with the illegal immigrants, and they care more about ethnic loyalty than tax cuts (shocking, I know! Who could possibly put ethnic loyalty before a bigger tax refund! It's downright crazy!:rolleyes:)

    6. Many minorites believe that Republicans don't care about poor people.

    7. Many minorites feel that the Republicans encourage the police to be mean to them. Regardless of whether that's true, that's what they perceive.



    To be clear, I'm not saying that the above reasons are factually true or accurate.

    But you asked why most minorites are hardcore Democrats, so I have attempted to summarize their beliefs.

    some of my children have married into Hispanic families. they were very happy early on to find out their future families were not only conservative, expected that, but also Republican voters. they are big believers of Self Determination, they decide their own future, and all doing quite well. i am hoping they are the voice of the future Hispanic Republicans.

    The most electable Democrat is Tulsi Gabbard. I say this because she is pro union, pro military, not a far left wing bat and she is Hot. The voters who elect the President are the emotional 1/3 who are persuaded by image and feel good BS. I feel Gabbard could best motivate the swing voters.

    Very well said, and a great analysis of why Latins vote blue, when it is actually against their best interests. It is all perception.

    Again, for all of you who do not know, Latins find 'Hispanic', as a racist term. Hispaniola is a Spanish demography, to denote those of Spanish linage, and judge the individual as merit worthy, based on the amount of pure Spanish blood that flows through their veins.

    The Aztec, Mezo, Miskito, Aztec, cultures, are ignored, are not worth signifying as authentic, are not worthy of acknowledgement.

    In the real world, that we pinchy wheros live in, they are, and are people to be respected, and admired.

    Some of my best friends of the past 30 years fall in this category. Love ya, bros.

    The extreme and messed up Democrat Party has a **racist** power struggle going on in their Party among the old white candidates and the younger black progressive ones. At some point in the near future (5-10 years), when the Democrat Party deceives and suckers enough minority voters, most of the white Democrat leadership will be thrown under the bus, as they are not needed anymore. Most all of the black Democrat Party politicians today have a very subtle black militant undertone to them and are closet Louis Farakahnn disciples that crave power so they can steal the money of white people, and further their radical Muslim cause here in the good old USA. The reality is, we are in a major spiritual battle in our country today.That is clear as day and really undebatable.
