Hispanics Very Important In 2012 Race

Hispanics Very Important In 2012 Race

Media reports indicate that both Democrats and Republicans are scrambling to become sweethearts among growing numbers of Hispanic voters in key electoral States.

President Barack Obama’s popularity among many white voters has dropped, and he faces more contention among blacks than at any time during his Presidency. Therefore, it has become increasingly important for his Administration to address the Hispanic populations of States like Florida and Nevada.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Florida, the nation’s largest Presidential swing state, has a voting-age Hispanic population that grew by nearly 250,000 people between 2008 and 2010. By contrast, the voting-age white population grew by only 30,400. Similar trends held true in Nevada and New Mexico where the number of Hispanics eligible to vote grew at nearly twice the rate of white voters.

Many people speculate that Obama’s attempt to attract more Hispanic voters is directly related to his Administration’s stance against strong immigration laws being passed in many States that some consider discriminatory and as harmful to legal Hispanic residents as they are to their illegal counterparts.

The GOP has also sought to gain rapport with Hispanic voters and have a number of conservative Hispanic politicians in the party to aid in the process. In November of 2010, Republicans elected three young conservative Hispanic Republicans: Marco Rubio easily won a Senate seat in Florida, Susana Martínez was elected Governor of New Mexico and Brian Sandoval was elected Governor of Nevada.

    I’m surprised the GOP gives a damn about Hispanics in any election. Typically, all they’re interested in is another suck-up who will act like a lemming. Rubio should know what to say and how to say it.
    Maybe the fact that he beat what’s-his-name in Florida finally registered with those dinosaurs who think only groomed and programmed insiders can get things done.

    • http://deleted Claire

      sc– Did I not hear that Hispanics have passed themselves off as Caucasians during the census?

      • Karolyn

        Hispanics are caucasian.

        • http://naver samurai

          Not all of them. The ones from Mexico are called Mestisos. That is the mixing of the caucasian and native races. Ergo, they can’t call themselves caucasian. Get your facts straight before you post. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • s c

        Claire, I never heard that, but in a way it would make sense as Obummer has to rely on fraud and deceit to get what he wants (I should say what his puppet masters want). Underestimating the number of illegals currently in America would work to Obummer’s advantage.
        That way, fewer people would see it as a clear and present danger. Put NOTHING past Obummer. For what it’s worth, Obummer has also opened the flood gates so Muslims can enter America. What a guy, eh?

  • Bruce

    Is there really any differance between the “alledged two partys.”
    Both are one as in its a case of; 1+1=1, so whats the big deal?

    **{{ REPEAL the 14th Amendment**} By The Way, that was brought about by the Republicans. Only then we can start fixing the real problem.

    Or should we just keep doing the same old tired two step dance over and over again? How many years has it been now 150 plus??????

    Do you really think its going to change if we don’t >
    ** REPEAL the 14th Amendment** ?

    If you really think anything is going to change with out the first step of {** Repealing the 14th Amendment,** } your as dumb as a box of cow turds.
    Fix the root of the problem or we will be stuck in this same maze until they come and round you up.

  • http://naver sook young

    I think that every vote, no matter their race, will be very important in 2012. Thank you.

    • Bruce

      WRONG,
      Your Vote is worthless, who you Vote for is not worth the Effort. All you are doing is making them stronger, Them; being the Corporation of DC.
      Understand what the root of the problem is and FIX it.

      If you have a flat tire do you replace the motor in your car or fix the flat tire?
      ***REPEAL the 14th Amendment NOW, read it, Comprhend it. learn it.***
      We are all SLAVES sold at BITH. Wake Up.
      All Congress persons know this, thats why nothing ever changes.

      • http://naver samurai

        I think my wife meant that if every one came out to vote, which is their right to do, then Obama and many progressives, rinos, cinos, etc., would be out of office. No matter race, religion, or gender, OK? As far as the 14th Amendment, which part do you want repealed? There are 5 articles in the 14th Amendment, so which one or ones have to go? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • Bruce

          Samurai,

          To keep it KISS ~ “ALL OF IT.” I think that covers the 14th Amendment. The 14th Amendment is the very root of the problem from what all the issues we face today stem from. Its really quite simple and anyone who dare think or read it and its history can come to no other conclusion.
          Really read it and comprehend the { words for their REAL TRUE value they have in LAW.)

          BTW, no insult was made toward your wife, I was just pointing out the facts no one wants to hear nor deal with, as real FREEDOM I am starting to think the American people just can’t handle.

          • http://naver samurai

            Understood, no offense taken by my wife. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      I hear you Sook and so do the standard black, Native American and all those that came here from around the world. It is not just a white thing.

      Ten million, 20 million, 30 million, 40 million… Hello Sharia flag, for English please press 2!

      P.S. Did you vote this week at “you cut”? http://majorityleader.gov/YouCut/

  • Robert

    IT HAS TO STOP!!!! CRACK DOWN ON OUR BORDERS!!!!

    JOE LEGAL vs. JOSE ILLEGAL

    You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”.
    Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California .

    Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
    $25.00 per hour before taxes are deducted.

    Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
    and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.

    Ready? Now pay attention…

    Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00
    per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has
    $31,231.00.

    Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00
    per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his
    family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has
    $24,031.00.

    Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and
    local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has
    $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or
    welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year.
    Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

    Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and
    welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe
    Legal now has $9,631.00.

    Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose
    Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose
    Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal
    now has $7,231.00.

    Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has
    $31,200.00. Better yet, his new babies were born in the US , so they are
    considered legal so they get state Medi-Caid and food stamps because he
    technically has NO income.

    Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline,
    etc.

    Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline
    and what he sends out of the country every month.

    Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
    work.

    Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

    Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe
    Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a
    government sponsored lunch Jose Illegal’s children have an after school
    ESL program. Joe Legal’s children go home (or childcare, that costs even
    more).

    Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
    but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

    Do you get it, now?

    If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens…

    You are part of the problem!

    It’s way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

    What are you waiting for?

    • eddie47d

      That’s all fine and dandy and a good synopsis. The bottom line is that all voters should be courted including Hispanics,blacks whites and anyone else who is a legal American citizen. Hispanic Americans who are eligible should be encouraged to vote and to participate in the American process. Saying your vote doesn’t count is a cop out for it will mean even less if you don’t vote.

    • Chris

      Robert, you said it all – think also about how Joe Legal’s taxes go to pay for all the education, medical and benefits that Joe Illegal gets for nothing… the education budgets are cut so programs like art and music are cut, yet ESL has free classes and extra teachers (sure doesn’t seem to be working if you go to any walmart or grocery store) – These leeches have to go – repeal the anchor baby laws and enforce our immigration laws – we sure as hell don’t need more blue collar competition especially ones with no expenses! The have no fear of deportation and have nerve to rally in DC DEMANDING rights with impunity – Mexico dictates foreign policy! It’s time for change all right – the first decent candidate that supports booting them out, enforcement of the laws of this land, and makes English the official language will be my hero!

    • Alberto Quintana

      I share your opinion. However, you made better contribution to America by mailing your example to the USA President, and to the Governor of California, and Texas.

    • Lilly

      Robert says:
      Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00
      per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

      Lilly says:
      Not true. Everytime you buy gasoline or other none food item you pay a tax on it. Jose Illegal is paying his state taxes.

      Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his
      family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has
      $24,031.00.

      Robert says:
      Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and
      local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has
      $31,200.00.

      Lilly says:
      free clinics and Hospitals that educate future doctors accept anyone of any income–you save money but have to wait 8 hours for your turn to see “the doctor”, I know because it has happened to me. For this reason Jose Illegal will hide the fact he is sick and go to work so he can keep his job.

      Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or
      welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year.
      Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

      Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and
      welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

      Lilly says:
      You don’t need to qualify for food stamps. You can go to city food banks and churches and get help and food. Also shop for clothes and toys at Salvation Army and Good Will. Jose Legal has to reuse, and recycle. Jose Illegal is way ahead of him in that department.

      Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe
      Legal now has $9,631.00.

      Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose
      Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose
      Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

      In Texas and other states, illegals cannot receive food stamps or federal rent subsidy because they are ILLEGAL. Therefore Jose Illegal saves some money by living in trailer homes with holes in the floor, drafty rooms with no heating or air-conditioning. Roaches run rampant and head lice. But hey! This is the land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, Jose Legal just doesn’t want to live as free and brave as Jose Illegal.

      There are many other things that Jose Legal can do to stretch his salary. Remember that its who you know that can get you what you need. Illegals have an extensive network for survival that most of us who are legal do not have and think do not need. You better make friends with your little illegals you may need a trailer home to live in someday and which Salvation and Goodwill to shop in.

      • http://naver samurai

        Wrong answer! Send them back immediately, with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Fly them to Southern Mexico and have them try to come back then. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Paul

    I agree with Robert. He hit the nail on the head. The illegals are breaking us and need to go back where they came from NOW!!!!! You are NOT welcome here!

  • Chris

    I wish Arizona Gov Jan Brewer or Sheriff Joe Arpaio would run! I love the way the illegals left in droves… you have to have identification in Mexico and if you are caught there, you go to JAIL – you don’t just get sent home – I have had enough! All these politicians do on both sides is coddle criminals for votes… here in IL, they don’t even ask for your ID at the polls! Chicago is a sanctuary city! Disgusting – they shouldn’t qualify for federal funding at all – Aurora looks like downtown Guadalahara – scary! Enough is Enough!

  • crystal

    One problem with this article is that it clumps all Hispanics into the same pot. The Cuban Americans came here and found the American Dream one in which they decided they wanted to be part of. The majority became legal and many are very prosperous. Puerto Ricans who came decades before Cubans are usually legal also. Both groups learned English. Our problem are Mexicans crossing the border and insisting that American citizens comply with their language and their ways. We get a huge dose of it here in Southern California.

    • mickey

      The labeling of “hispanic” was on purpose. Most will tell you what country they are from but the leaders want all linked together–whether or not they want to be. Most other than the Mexicans will come on visas, stay their 5 years and go home, very aligned to their own country.

      I’ve lost track of Asians. The last I heard they wanted no part of being combined with “hispanics” because they could whoop our butts in school without destroying property, rape, and murder. Who in their right mind would want that identification?

      As far as I am concerned, this so-called group gave me and my family a bad name, a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, for having a Spanish last name. Oh, BTW, we work, no welfare here, no illegal entry.

    • Joyce from Loris

      You have apparently not been to “little Havana” in Florida. There is NO English spoken there. You can’t even order a sandwich if you don’t speak spanish. It is an outrage in our nation! Those people have NOT assimilated to America. They are CUBANS. Legal or not, they are CUBANS, not AMERICANS.

    • Karolyn

      Aren’t ALL Puerto Ricans legal?

      • http://naver samurai

        Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, they are legal. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Surviving_Life

    Ahh, you all beleive Robert’s comments are just aimed at illegal Hispanics, kind of a racist thing. As the owner of a large plumbing company I can tell you that Robert’s analagy is FACT, and that fact runs true to Middle Eastern & Russian immigrants also. I actually fill out the paperwork required by the government for some of these illegal & legal immigrants to get their entitlement funds. No, I don’t hire illegals, however the grren card holders usually bring in the rest of the family illegal. I’m on the left coast so it’s against the law for me to discriminate or fire an employee even if I have carnal knowledge he is receiving entitlements for illegal family members, or illegal members of his family are receiving direct entitlements.

    Talk about a broken system !!!

    • mickey

      I don’t exactly see Russian illegals protesting in the streets threatening bodily harm nor take over of 1/3 of the land. Yes, illegal is illegal but the so called hispanics (made up word) boast about their intentions, no racism needed here, they are self identified as a group goaled to take over the US.

      • Joyce from Loris

        Yeah, well give them time! It is growing in popularity to protest. The Russians will catch on as soon as their numbers increase. No one wants a piece of the American pie, they all want to change the pie to TACOS, or something.

  • Joani

    If it does work that way,how is it, a non citizen gets to insist on anything that clearly is Americas? How is it any non-citizen has our Constitutioal rights? Other than human rights, there never were intended to. The constitution pertains to WE THE PEOPLE. Any one el
    se are guests, the illigals are neither.

    That was the PRIVLEDGE of being, and or wanting to become an AMERICAN. Thoughs are the immigrants who made us. These illigals are not immigrants.

  • mickey

    Twice now I have lived in two areas that housed America’s most wanted. I visited their places of work and found them the best, most polite workers I had run into for some time. Little did I know they were on the most wanted list. lol, talk about sheep’s clothing. Just how many of Hitler’s tribe left Germany and led model lives thereafter? And just how many of our youth is sent to jail for a nickel bag? Go figure whose side these pols are.

  • http://F.B. john

    If we can get a few thousand more illegals,it will be easier on us,they breed like rabbits and soon will outnumber us.At this point,our labors will be over.We can sit back and let them run the country.I sometimes wonder though where the politicians will go when the illegals vote them out of office in favor of an illegal,and,where will the illegals go when they have made this country like that thriving country to the south.

    • Joyce from Loris

      We already have an illegal in the White House.

  • chuckb

    john, you need to look no further than california to prove your point.

  • DaveH

    It all goes back to Big Government. The Leaders love it when you demand more Government. They will gladly accommodate you. They are spending 40% of our GDP. How can any economy be robust when Government is draining almost half of it.
    Instead of whining about the illegals getting a free ride, concentrate on the real problem. That is a Government which is getting away with robbing Peter to pay Paul. We need to get Government out of the charity business. Otherwise you can all just waste time picking your favorite whipping boys while the Government keeps growing and sucking more of our money down that great big rabbit hole. Focus on the other hand.

    • Joyce from Loris

      I am the PETER who is being robbed to pay PAUL, AKA the illegal aliens.

      • DaveH

        Does it really matter, Joyce, if it is an illegal alien or some other parasite?

  • John A. Gunther

    there is no doubt that by the actions or lack of it, is allowing our beloved country to be taken over by a foreign country, slowly but surely.. and there is nothing you can do about it… or is there? do you want to live in a country where in order to survive you must speak spanish if you dont mind then do nothing.. but if you do mind then you must do something….because if nothing is done.. there could very well be another civil war..except this time it wont be about slavery but to fight to get your country back..its all up to you america..,

  • Old Henry

    Sam:

    Rubio is not Hispanic, he is Cuban. There is a BIG difference – just ask a Cuban. I made the inadvertant mistake of confusing a Puerto Rican as Hispanic – Once….

  • Lilly

    I feel you are all crazy. Every person in the United States came from immigrants. Just think that Mexico is getting back its part of the country. Remember that New Spain was from the edge of Chicago to the edge of California, to borders of Canada, to south of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Also, Mexicans work at jobs that the poor white Angelo and rich Hispanics, Cubans do not want to work at in this country. They think those jobs are beneath them or very low paying such as picking cotton, chile, or strawberries and cleaning rich people’s housed or wiping the asses of their little rich brats.
    Remember our problems started with Reagan’s right hand man and banking guru, Sachs. They took away the International Trading Embargo. George Bushes gave tax breaks to the Rich. Thanks to Bush Jr. he fought two wars without any funding and the jolly mad Republicans just went along for the ride. If it hadn’t been for 9/11 Bush Jr. would have been a one-term president and would have saved the middle-class a lot of money and grief.

    • http://naver samurai

      Bush, baaaaa! Tax breaks for the rich, baaaaa! Chaaaaange! Same ol’ lib nonsense. If you like the illegals so mouch, then you can join them on the plane heading south of the boarder. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Lilly

        Actually, considering that most of the U.S. was under Spanish rule and has lots of Spanish architecture, I don’t have to leave across the border. You on the other hand might be one of those Mayflower wet backs and maybe you should consider going back to your “roots”.

    • Raggs

      Fool… Have you EVER heard of NATIVE AMERICANS?? I doubt it and I doubt if you would know one if you seen them… I happen to be.. My Grandmother was 3/4 Cheroke my Granddad was over 1/2.

    The Puerto Ricans are Americans even if they are not allowed to vote and have kept their language here on the island. They pay taxes, and fight and die in the American military service like all North Americans. They all have contributed alot to this country just like any fellow North American.

    HISPANICS REPRESENT A STRANGE SITUATION. SINCE STATISTICS INDICATE HISPANICS ARE THE MOST POPULOUS MINORITY GROUP, WHY ARE THEY SO QUIET? IN THE NEGRO COMMUNITY, I NEVER HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT HISPANIC-POLITICAL ACTIVISM. THAT IS STRANGE SINCE HISPANICS HAVE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO NEGROES IN URBAN AREAS. IT SEEMS OTHER MINORITY GROUPS ARE COMFORTABLE ALLOWING NEGRO-CIVIL-RIGHTS AGENDAS TO BE THE “ALL PURPOSE” STANDARD-BEARER FOR SOCIAL ADVANCEMENTS. IF I WAS HISPANIC, I WOULD NOT BE HAPPY WITH THAT. HAS THE ILLEGAL-IMMIGRATION ISSUE FREIGHTENED THEM FROM ACTION?
