The Dems are also not too big on verifying voter identity. Or border security. Or enforcement of immigration rules.

Not to mention the pandering. Always with the pandering.

The Republicans only pay lip service to being inclusive. They say they want to court women voters, then continue to attack reproductive rights. They claim to want to bring Hispanic voters into the fold, then do everything they can to stop immigration reform. What's next from the GOP? An attempt to bring black voters to their side, then do everything they can to dismantle the Voting Rights Act?

Oh, wait...

The question is how will they vote.

Hispanics tend to have a strong conservative streak, and if they republicans ever figure that out then all hell is going to break loose.

/and, by the numbers, Obama hasn't been a big advocate of open borders or amnesty.
/tho that doesn't really matter to second generation immigrants.

They prefer the people that don't treat them like subhuman pieces of chattel.  Shocking.

Not by any definition of conservative that includes Republicans.  Not by any stretch.

who cares anymore? Doesn't matter who you vote for, you still get the same level of NSA surveillance.

Just remember, telling the public about NSA spying is treason.

So what you are saying is if Reoublicans do the opposite of everything they stand for, they might have a chance.

I know, right! Just look at this graph of how having a Dem for president has lead to a budget decrease for border security!

i361.photobucket.com Wait, that suggests their budget has gone up... Well, surely those numbers don't translate to actual people on the ground. Check out this staffing graph!
i361.photobucket.com

Okay, so maybe a budget increase, and increased staffing in the Border Patrol aren't clear indicators that even with Dems in charge, border security isn't being completely undercut by Obama. These numbers are just skewed!

Yep, the only reason minorities vote Democrat is because they're lazy and just want to mooch off taxpayers.

It is truly a mystery why you dipshiats can't attract 'em.

If I'm getting this right, GOP 'outreach' works like this:-

1. Realizes group is marginalized.
2. Approaches group.
3. Tells group what they should do.
4. Sits back.

Reasoning: the virdant necromancy of the GOP message will automatically upgrade the group with bootstraps so the group becomes GOP.

(Admittedly, this has never worked.)

It seems that the longer their families have been in the US, the more they support Dems over GOP.

No, they don't. Hispanics are more likely to be Catholic but on every issue they're more supportive of Democratic positions than Republican/conservative.

This might the greatest failure of Republicans.  Hispanics are generally family oriented, religious and conservative.  The fact that Republicans are losing that demographic this badly is just an embarrassment, really.

Obama is being challenged by the ICE union due to his lax immigration enforcement. Though he did change the way they report deportations so simpleminded folk can say otherwise.

There's no financial reason to vote for Republicans, either, unless one is both wealthy and short sighted, and don't mind supporting sociopathic policies.

Edsel: Haven't been on Fark in a while. When did it turn into freerepublic.com?


I have a theory about that.

Fark used to have people who could speak intelligently about Republican issues. Now Fark seems to be an echo chamber for the Democratic Party.But when you look into it... It has nothing to do with liberals vs conservatives.The GOP platform is no longer supported by intelligent conservatives... it's supported by complete morons. Farkers who used to support the GOP have either crossed the line or just stay away. Internet-browsingmorons who support the 2013 GOP tend to post on places like Yahoo News; places like Fark tend to attract people with above-average IQ.

So all we get supporting the GOP here are either trolls or shills... because nobody else in a crowd like this will keep supporting them.

No, they don't. Hispanics are more likely to be Catholic but on every issue they're more supportive of Democratic positions than Republican/conservative.




Except for the positions that are pro-abortion, pro-union, and on favor of increasing taxes to cover handouts. They've got no particular love for gay rights or excessive regulations on all things. They like having large extended families and openly express religious views. They've been running on the republican ticket and poll well in southern states.
Second and third generation of any immigrant group tends to lose its affinity for their native language and border issues aren't as big a deal as crime fighting and job creation (and I can say that from personal observation).

Hispanics are alot closer to the republican side of the line than democrat.
Many of us just don't realize it yet.

Hence the republican problem. They don't realize that the ethnic groups they like to complain about will back many of their policies.

Policy wise obama really has not been all that different from george w bush. The major difference being that obama is an eloquent speaker so he is much better at pulling wool over the eyes of people.

There are more liberals than conservatives on Fark, that's for sure. But this claim that liberals on Fark (or anywhere else, for that matter) are just echoing the Democratic Party line is not reality-based.

Like me, many liberals find the Democratic party utterly loathsome. We just think the Republican Party is ten times worse.
 
2013-08-09 08:59:06 AM  
Hispanics favor Democrats over Republicans 2 to 1, which has a tendency to happen when you listen to what they are saying pander and prostitute for votes then do nothing once you are elected instead of asking if they have their papers

Yes, but those religious views are largely Catholic, and Catholicism (especially with Pope Francis in charge now) is pretty vehement about social justice issues like taking care of the poor and sick, helping the needy, compassion and forgiveness and all that.

None of which is at all evident in GOP rhetoric and policy.

I said "seem." You're preaching to the choir... I'm the one who made this during the election season:

oi50.tinypic.com

And when we think about it in those terms... the fact that many Latinos are generally conservative doesn't affect their inclination to vote Democrat.
