Black voter turnout passes white rate

Apr 28, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Politico

America's blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.

As long as we don't have to pay for those differences in our actions. Of course, when that does happen, people will become more conservative as they won't be stealing from their neighbor.

10 people shot in Chicago before 8 pm. You don't see that in states that have conceal carry. Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the nation, and they are like animals in Chicago.

Gabby Giffords was shot, along with many others with an armed conceal carry person in the crowd. didn't help them at all. he even helped tackle the guy, but the shooting was over before he could do anything with his gun.

the fact that you think it is a good idea pretty much shoots it down for rational people, as on this same page, you didn't even know what a percentage of voters was...

are you even smart enough to tie your shoes, let alone carry an gun?

Gabby giffords was shot, and that was a tragedy, but they didn't come back every day and shoot more people. In Chicago the black people shoot each other every day, day after day, after day. It is like an uncivilized jungle other there. They are on a par with wild animals. BTW, it is useless to know the percentage of voters, because in Chicago they multi vote, and vote their dead. Far more people vote then there are voters in some neighborhoods. You are the stupid one, and I doubt you could pass the safety tests to carry a gun legally.

Mitt had a horrible performance as governor of Mass when it came to jobs. That is why he did bother to run up for reelection.

Using your rational, Obama should never have run for a second term.

True enough woody, however it's like a lottery ticket, you have a better chance to win if you buy one.....and you have a better chance of survival if you have a permit yourself, then you don't depend if someone else will react.

Well, since it’s a hypothetical situation, I’m going to say he will break into my neighbor’s house because he/she must have a lot more stuff to protect than I do (hence the gun). I on the other hand have a state of the art security system with cameras, and a Rottweiler, no ......make that a German Sheppard.
I cannot see imprisoning anyone for 10 yrs because they’ve illegally overstayed their visa (about 40%) or crossed the border illegally. Even with a 10 year possible imprisonment, people will still want to come here. You have no idea of the abject poverty, lack of availability in getting an education, no jobs, government corruption, narco-traffic violence that these people have to live in, day in and day out. To escape such a horrible existence and possibly make a better life for their children, they may just take their chances here rather than their homeland.
I was in Vegas on 2007 when the Hispanics protested the hotels there in Vegas. They carried the Mexican flag and carried the American flag UP SIDE DOWN. Tell me they love this country. I seen their love and have pictures of it.

<quoted text>AS DOES 2.6GPA illegal-alien thug bisexual Obama whose mother was a pornstar.
All presidents born after 1787, except for Chester Arthur and Barack Obama, met the “natural born Citizen” criteria, i.e., born on U.S. soil to a mother and father who were themselves U.S. citizens at the time of the President’s birth. Neither Arthur nor Obama were “natural born Citizens” at the time of birth. Arthur was born to an alien father who also made his U.S. citizen mother an alien. Obama was born to a non-U.S. citizen father who never became a U.S. citizen and, being here only on a temporary student visa, was never even an immigrant. There have been 46 Americans that have served as Vice-President (not including Mr. Biden). Ten were born before 1787. All Vice-Presidents born after 1787, except for Chester Arthur, met the “natural born Citizen” criteria.
KENYAN-BORN Obama is a puppet for the Illuminati ushering in their NWO. The REAL Birth Certificate, country of birth, various citizenships, assortment of fake names and bogus SSNs are irrelevant. The simple fact Obama's alleged father was never American means BHO could NEVER legally run for President much less Dogcatcher. We have been duped by this antichrist and the Masons.

Maybe changing the mindset is a good place to start. This isn’t a war so therefore the concept of surrendering is not valid. No one is demanding that we have to learn Spanish.(Though acquiring *any* second language at a young age is highly recommended.) Civil war?? Really?? It isn’t as dire as you may think.
No laws can totally fix this large influx of undocumented workers. But it can be slowed to a trickle. How about reforming our legal immigration system to better help build the economy, or fully implement an effective e-verification system to help prevent identity theft and end hiring of unauthorized workers by cracking down on employers? It will take a concerted effort by local, state and federal governments and businesses to fully implement any immigration reform. The problem is that for whatever reason, it seems immigration reform is cyclical. It comes up every few decades with the same points of contention. If laws are enforced and funded, then it will become containable.
No, because that's where politics comes into play.

The Democrats are salivating at the potential voters amnesty will bring. Statistics show that Hispanics favor large government which liberals provide. I heard a figure that 75% vote Democrat. So why in the world would any Republican support that? As Rush Limbaugh pointed out, amnesty will be the end of the Republican party for many generations to come.

On the other hand, Republicans are now threatened by the Hispanic vote. They feel they need to do something to minimize the damage, so Rubio has come out with his own 850 page bill.

The bottom line is this: illegal immigrants are no different than bank robbers, rapists or murderers. They are breaking the law by being here. By creating new policy to accommodate these illegals is no different than creating new laws to accommodate murderers and rapists. Why should we? Because of votes?

American workers are suffering and will continue to suffer if we don't provide a proper deterrent to illegals. Pandering to them is not a deterrent. Pandering to them is an invitation. If you put out an ad, somebody is going to answer it.

Speaking of politics. did you know that DumBama and the Democrats run ads in Mexico promoting our social programs to encourage people to come here illegally? This has got to stop.

Our politicians are working against us. They say we need to bring in people to do the jobs that Americans won't do. I disagree. I think what we need to do is bring in people that will do the job our politicians won't do.
