Face of US changing; elections to look different
By CONNIE CASS and NANCY BENAC | Associated Press Mon, Nov 12, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) It's not just the economy, stupid. It's the demographics the changing face of America.

The 2012 elections drove home trends that have been embedded in the fine print of birth and death rates, immigration statistics and census charts for years.

America is rapidly getting more democratic, and, more gradually, so is its electorate.

The trend has worked to the advantage of President Barack Obama two elections in a row now and is not lost on Republicans poring over the details of Tuesday's results.

Obama captured a commanding 80 percent of the growing ranks of nonwhite voters in 2012, just as he did in 2008. Republican Mitt Romney won 59 percent of non-Hispanic whites.

Romney couldn't win even though he dominated among white men and outperformed 2008 nominee John McCain with that group. It's an ever-shrinking slice of the electorate and of America writ large.

You can hear it in the voice of Alicia Perez, a 31-year-old immigration attorney who voted last week at a preschool in Ysleta, Texas.

"I trust the government to take care of us," she said. "I don't trust the Republican Party to take care of people."

"Both parties are getting the message that this is a new age and a new America," says Frey. "Finally, the politics is catching up with the demography."

For both Republicans and Democrats, he said, the 2012 election is a wake-up call that will echo through the decades.

You are pathetic. The ride is over for our future who will never want to be self-made entrepreneurs and open a business. The ride is over for hope that young people want to make a difference on their own free will. The ride is over for the American way. We are now under another term with Obama who will force these dreams and hopes under a pile of government crap...literally.

"The ride is over for our future who will never want to be self-made entrepreneurs and open a business"

BULLSHIT !

It's time the profits are limited to a realistic level for these companies...no more fuggin' windfalls at the expense of the taxpayer and the American people !

I guarantee....even IF profits are limited...to say...;15%.......there STILL will be 'entrepreneurs' for whom that 15% is enough !

And how does one limit those profits ?

TAXES !

when a company can pay it's executives millions...HUNDREDS of millions...EACH.....each and every year.....

Then that company is making profits FAR above and beyond reasonable....and at the expense of the American taxpayer.

cuz shlt sure, if they were paying their fair share, they wouldn't be able to offer their executives that kind of money !

Since the election what do we have:
Stock market DOWN
Over 45 million on food stamps
More layoffs
More debt
AND a 500 billion dllar tax increase coming 1/2013
Strap in - "The markets are going to go into meltdown soon, so expect stocks to lose 20 percent of their value."

Time to go to ground with any money you've managed to keep out of the grasping hands of Obama/Pelosi/Reid's Washington.

No doubt TB - but if you want to start a business and you have your flugalbinder idea that goes viral and you add mfg. jobs, sales jobs, etc. and you corner the flugalbinder market - now you have to lay people off, share your wealth, share what you built and give up your freedom to make it big. Paying taxes - we will be giving money to the ones with no drive, no entrepreneurial wisdom or gumption to make a dream a reality. We will have hands out. It will be 80% working their tales off and 20% gaining off what they made - by riding the new system...the Obama system. Do I think some companies make too much and give CEO ungodly amounts of money...sure. But giving their profits they worked for to the rest of the people that don't deserve it? If you are not in the flugalbinder business then why should you profit from it. BS.

"If you are not in the flugalbinder business then why should you profit from it. BS."

Again, BULLSHlT !

They would not HAVE those 'profits' if they were paying their FIAR SHARE of taxes .

And nobody is saying "give those profits to someone else'.....it's time to pare down the national debt.

They cry like little girls.
Whose's crying? All republicans are millionaires and billionaires who don't pay their fair share and don't give people a fair shot in America, according to his eminence obama, why would they cry? That's silly.
