I think the real problem is the crazy far right Christians who seem to have influence over the GOP. Most asian religious beliefs do not have a problem with homosexuality or discrimination against other races, also I know plenty of Asian people who have a very strong Christian faith and they choose to follow the "do not judge others" or "choose not to force their beliefs down your throat" and they feel Christians radicals like the ones in the US are a threat to Christianity itself.

Well, that's absolutely nothing new. It's been such since Eisenhower left office.

Where do you think neoconservatism, the moral majority, compassionate conservatism, the Republican revolution, christian coalition, Bush-era neoconservatism, and the tea party came from? Same bullshiat, rebranded every time the actual independents and unaffiliated voters in this country caught wise to it.

tinyarena: Can't you people read? The headline said think outside the box. The answer is simple. We just need a new minority group. A Huge Group of strong-backed, slack-jawed voters. Heck, they should be designed to vote. Early and Often. Then, back to work down in the coal mines. Actually, they could live in the mines, thereby freeing up valuable surface areas. We have the technology. And 4moaryears to develop some prototypes.

Who's With Me!?


That angle is already in play. Look at the movement against sex-ed coupled with vilification of birth control in GOP controlled states. Nothing like failing to educate children about the potential consequences of giving into desires that are hard-wired into us, and also making it harder for them to protect themselves from said consequences.

I have nothing further to add, except to say them Asians better not try to cut into us Jews' action, so here's a joke:

A Pole, an Italian and a Chinese all die and go to Hell. The Devil meets them at the gates of Hell and says "Look, I don't know what you've heard but let me tell you: in Hell, everyone works. So I want you all to take this aptitude test. How you do on the test will determine your job in Hell."

They all take the test and the Devil looks over the results. He says to the Pole "You didn't do too well on this test. I'm going to put you to work shoveling coal in a furnace." He says to the Italian "You didn't do well either. You shovel coal too." He turns to the Chinese and says "You did pretty well on this test. I'm putting you in charge of supplies."

A couple of weeks later the Devil is back in the vicinity and he decides to check in on the three of them. He walks into the furnace and sees the Pole and the Italian feverishly shoveling coal, but the Chinese is nowhere to be seen. The Devil asks "Where's the Chinese guy?" and they answer "We don't know. He disappeared right after you left and we haven't seen him since." The Devil mutters "When I catch that guy..." and he sets off, fuming, towards the next furnace. Next to the road is a big rock. As he walks by, the Chinese guy suddenly jumps out from behind the rock and shouts "Supplies!"

Possibly a religious element to it as well. Republicans are always going on and on about how we're a Christian nation, how we have to put Jesus in every womb and classroom and public square. Yet Asians tend to be not Christian. They're Buddhists, agnostics, athiests, Confucianists, Taoists, Muslims, Hindu, and others. So yeah, when they're told that their religion is inferior by an entire political party, they might just take offense.

The next nation-wide* redistricting will happen after the 2020 Census, so I'd say around the 2022 election.

/*there may be a redistricting before that if PR is granted statehood, since they have some 3.7 million residents
//I expect CA and TX to each lose at least one seat in the House as a result, and very likely NY and FL as well
///they'd likely end up with 4 or 5 total House seats (and 6 or 7 electoral votes)

Don't think it's entirely bc of this but the two churches I grew up in had high Vietmanese/Polish and Italian/Filipino % respectively and I never heard gay marriage mentioned. Big protest about reinstating the death penalty though, which failed.

Then I went to my cousin's pretty lily white Catholic church for a baptism and the f--king deacon threw in a "traditional marriage under attack" line into the middle of the F--KING BAPTISM.

The church I go to here in Harris County, TX, is pretty laid back. It does separate services in English, Spanish and Tagalog. I'm only a C 'n E attendee, but the traditional marriage stuff never comes up.

So, what I gathered from the article is that the GOP needs to pander to specific minorities as a way to keep the rich white people in power. As smart as the Asians are (per the stereotyping in the article), I would assume Asians would be smart enough not to fall for the bullshiat of the GOP.
The GOP doesn't care about anything except keeping the rich white people in power. The GOP will continue to fail in their attempt to dupe racial minorities. Good job guys. You can fark off now.

Asians are not monolithic. It's almost like they come from different countries.
In Texas and Louisiana, first generation Vietnamese tend to be fishermen. What their children will be, I have no idea.
In NYC (well Queens) Koreans tend to be shopkeepers. What their children will be, I have no idea.
Nor can I speak for the Asians from other countries.
Are they interested in immigration? Probably up to the point that they can (legally) reunite their extended families.

At the very least, it's been proven you can carry Florida, which Obama has done twice now, without catering to the loony Cuban community.


Al Gore carried Florida but the Supreme Court stopped the recount at 527 vote difference. Of course, he took the Cuban's side by saying Elian Gonzalez should have stayed here in freedom, unlike Janet Reno who sent in the blackbooted thugs.

See, after this election the GOP has been doing some reflection, with quite a few of its members saying that they need to include immigrants, homogays, and other groups in their base in order to remain relevant. Sane people have been saying this for quite some time.

Now here's the thing that gets me: They wish to include groups which they've marginalized - or even downright hated - because it's proper political maneuvering, not because it's the right thing to do. They only want to reach out for political gain. The GOP can fark off and die.

I like that picture because it is both racist and not racist at all.

I mean, it's racist in that it depicts one particular 'race' facing difficulties purely because of their race, and it being funny for that reason.

But it's not racist at all because it's just a simple consequence of physical reality; having a genetic predisposition to having narrow eyes and having "pan-Asian eye folds" naturally results in technology having a difficult time differentiating between that and a closing non-Asian eye.

Why, oh why won't asians vote for us???


You know, my mother, who is the prototype "Reagan Democrat" knee-jerk baby boomer, called me up after one of the debates: "If Romney keeps talking like that about China, he's going to lose the Asian vote". And yep, she was right.

While unknown to most of the media, the Republican party has been spending the last 12 years alienating Asian-Americans. Most Chinese-Americans do NOT like it when you whitewash China and Chinese people as being unscrupulous and evil, who will eventually take over America with debt and intrigue. Most Middle Eastern Americans do not like it when you legislatively stonewall and vandalize their mosque in central Tennessee even though there are like 400 churches in Murfreesborough and NO mosques for an Islamic community of over 20,000. Most Korean Americans don't like it when you abandon the sunshine policy for more bellicose neoconservative sabre-rattling. And Filipino Americans are also census classified as Hispanic. And the GOP has not done much to make them feel welcome into their fold either.


It will be a huge challenge for the GOP to mend relations with Asian-Americans, just as it will be a huge challenge for them to mend relations with Hispanics. But this requires genuine introspection and rethinking. So I don't see the GOP getting their act together for another two or three election cycles. Maybe the 2018 midterms will numbers will normalize again? (Provided, of course, the GOP starts to right the ship now and does not devolve into any more of a racist parody of itself...)

No, the GOP policies that are effective are crafted to benefit rich people. The GOP policies that designed to attract votes are crafted to seem to preserve white privileged. Their base does not seem to realize that making the rich richer has no bearing on the base's wealth or status and that their decline is not blamable on non-whites.

Even the Cubans voted for Obama this time around.

From what the talking heads tell me, it was 3rd generation Cubans that went for Obama. I guess the older Cubans are dying off. I hold out hope that normalized relations with Cuba are in the near future.

Zombie Castro has witnessed 14 USA elections during his dictatorship. . 11 USA presidents have had to delay relations while the man who allowed Russian/Soviet nukes to be placed 90 miles from Florida is still alive.

The missiles have been gone for over half a century. Time to give it up. The Chinese backed the Vietcong, and we're best buds now.

Just reporting the facts, not right or wrong. Beyond thats, Vietnam was our ally. We were trying to protect South Vietnam from communism.

That's one viewpoint. I could counter we were cleaning up the mess left by French Colonization after the French bailed.


That made no sense whatsoever.
