Are you alluding to Mexican Americans? Republicans never will have that vote - never did anything to entice the vote.
I don't have metrics on jobs - can't supply what I don't have.
without that 13% would Obama still have won, either time? But let's don't play games, blacks have very few of those high paying jobs you referred to. And if the hispanic vote was split 50/50 dems would have a hard time being elected anywhere as well.

I'm serious, white american liberals are the only people I'm aware of who constantly criticize their own people. Am I missing some other group somewhere else? Blacks and mexicans are tribalists, they always stick with their own. Asian americans go with whites by default.

an estimated 62% of blacks will qualify for Medicaid, not insurance policies, that tells me a lot about who's getting the majority of welfare.
Funny, I don't know 1 white family on welfare or food stamps. In fact all my white friends grew up to be productive members of society.
Currently, from not a percentage but a numerical standpoint, more whites receive some form of public assistance than the AA population - these are the facts.

Your experience may have been different growing up - not knocking you, just saying. But poverty and welfare assistance do exist in your city and state my friend.

Liberals and mindless idiots put this weak puke in office. For that we are on the brink of a war that will destroy all we know. As I said, I will hunt the fools that voted for this crap and I hope all true patriots ill join me if we are still alive. They must be destroyed for treason. Good GOD, where is Reagan when we need him?

Actually, it does seem that red states do in fact vote against their best interests.
I'm not buying that, your supposition is just wrong. The whole red state/blue state welfare argument is bogus anyway. If you want to assess blame, blame the feds, they take and take from the states and then dole it back.

The gas tax is a classic example, the dept. of education too, they have no business being involved in state issues, it's ineffective and wasteful.

I'm actually amazed you would call Mexicans tribal. You know mw as well - and I'm Hispanic - and most of my friends were Hispanic as a young man, but now I have a mix of just about every culture and race as personal friends.

You my friend sound a bit "Tribal" yourself - are the majority of your friends white? Nothing wrong with that - just asking, since you broached the subject.
Whats your point

Gas taxes are assessed by each state - when I visit a client in N.J., I go on half a tank and fill there - gas prices are almost $0.50 less than in NY or surrounding states. As a matter of fact, N.J. has one of the lowest gas taxes in the country - this is also a fact.

If you wish to disregard actual data, this is your choice. The fact remains, southern red states have a lower cost of living, except food - the same all over - lower (much lower) property taxes, which all equate into lower wages.

Classic example - New Mexico receives $2.19 for every dollar it pays to the federal government, vs.$0.79 for ever dollar for N.Y.

Mississippi has the highest poverty level in the country per capita. They don't survive without federal assistance.

I'm not assessing blame - just stating facts.

Which would harm them financially?
Seems like a contradiction to me. Where am I going wrong?

The Republican 'Base' will never be accused of being the sharpest tool in the shed.
They have a looong and illustrious History of voting against threir best interests.
The Gop has slathering them with bullshit(Your the REAL AMericans!'Down Home Smart')and inciting their Racism,Paranoia.
(YOU are the only people who work hard! While those shiftless minorities live off your Tax Money!...Your Not Stupid!...Just looked down on by the 'Elites'.)down to a fine art.
Basicly appealing to the WORST qualities their base posseses while PRETENDING to validate them.
Worked like a charm for decades...until recently when they over played their hand in panic over Obama with DimBulb Palin and the Koch's over reached trying to manipulated the Retards and the stooges didnt go back in the box until the next election cycle.
Which is exactly why the GOP is a fragmented ,un-electable mess with the Tea Party around their neck like a Millstone.
Couldnt happen to a nicer bunch of Nazi Plutocrats!Lmao!

Did it ever cross your mind that the reason we are in the mess we're in is because too many people DID vote for their own self-interest and not the interest of the country?

THE NEXT AMERICA | POLICY Could Obamacare Problems Push Latinos to the GOP?

“This is an opening for Republicans because Latino optimism about expanding health care is starting to wane like the rest of the population,” said pollster Gabriel Sanchez, an associate professor of political science at the University of New Mexico.“The Republican strategy of hammering at the health care law could work among Latinos.”

Indeed, the latest Gallup Poll found Obama’s approval rating sinking 9 points among Hispanics in the last week, the sharpest drop of any subgroup. The 49 percent approval rating is the first time Obama registered below the crucial 50 percent threshold with Latinos this year.

Patriot Act author: Obama’s intel czar should be prosecuted
By Brendan Sasso

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress.

"Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill.
