After any election, you can expect the losing party to grasp for what they could have done to save the election. The moderates in the Republican Party, who are essentially watered down liberals who don’t like paying taxes, are certain to spin the results. Conservatives, beware!
Moderates like Karl Rove and his power happy cronies who smoke cigars in backrooms with democrats as often as republicans, while they send conservatives in their own ranks packing, will be on their high horse again, saying, “see, we need to be more moderate!”
How moderate do we need to be? More moderate than John McCain, Bob Dole, or Mitt Romney, Herr Rove?
Marco Rubio and Charles Krauthammer have established their bias when they said that the only way to win is to advocate for Amnesty. This is short sighted and insulting both to legal immigrants, and others who understand our immigration issues. Rush Limbaugh spelled out the truth this week on his show. The RNC says the lesson from 2012 is that we need to do Amnesty in order to win the Hispanic vote. Funny, Reagan received 37% of the Hispanic vote in 1984 being Reagan. He did Amnesty in 1986 and his VP was rewarded with a 7% drop to 30% of the Hispanic vote after doing Amnesty.
No matter what line the stubborn RINO voices want to sell, they cannot falsify basic math.
Leftists and moderate Republicans ramble on about how we have lost the black and Hispanic vote, and with those two groups growing in number, maybe Republicans can never win again! Hyperbole.
I have long enjoyed immersing myself in other cultures. I live very close to the border of Mexico, and most of my friends and my children’s friends here are from Mexico. I listen to them, and I know that their biggest hesitation with the Republican Party is that the candidates on the national level don’t seem to understand that they have worked hard to get here, and many feel it would be wrong to allow others to stay illegally. That is not what they are looking for in a leader.
If you spend time in these two very important demographic communities, you learn quickly about their sense of family values, their willingness to work hard and pay their own way. Certainly there are freeloaders in any population, but just like most of American, the freeloaders are the exception. Clearly, the Reagan – Amnesty – Bush history tells us that Amnesty is not the solution, but then what is?
Another clear truth of the exit polling is telling us is that making the case to oppose Obama was not enough. What every American instinctively knows is that no one really knew what a Romney Administration would deliver. We assailed the empty promise of “Hope” with an equally empty promise of “Change” in Romney. Isn’t that ironic.
How many Americans could speak with any certainty about what Romney would enter the White House with? Would we have pro-choice, pro-universal healthcare Governor Romney, hedge fund manager Romney, or candidate Romney with lots of vague policy positions?
They don’t want more handouts; they want a party who understands their value of religion, and family. Most Hispanic groups are Catholic, and very pro-life. The moderate Republican, in refusing to discuss the holocaust of abortion, have alienated Latino Catholics who would vote republican (and often do on more local races).
The same is true for the black community. They understand three things that republicans never discuss:
1) God is God and He isn’t Allah or Buddha or anyone else. Black churches worship God like nobody’s business, and if the Republican Party were truly the party that stood up for our Christian heritage, it would win these people who are passionate about their faith. The Republicans kept God in their platform, and the Democrats voted against God in their platform three times. But then the Republicans never used that in the campaign so the faithful were largely unaware.
2) They understand precisely where abortion clinics are. I was schooled in this arena when I was a crisis pregnancy counselor in the City of St. Louis. The young women who had been coerced into abortion by Planned Parenthood told me that a known eugenicist, Margaret Sanger, whose goal in life was to see the black race eradicated, founded the organization. Obama and Biden lied in the campaign when they said that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. It doesn’t. Yet the Republicans never even set the record straight. Further, the argument for many is not about whether or not abortion is “safe and legal” as the Democrats have successfully argued. Black families know that $1.5 million of their tax dollars go to fund this genocidal organization every single day! Then Republicans refuse to discuss the matter, and ask for their vote. What is to make the black community, with their history of defenselessness against tyranny of the powerful, think they are safe in the hands of Republicans when Republicans won’t defend the defenseless?
3) They know what has happened to their families. The social welfare system has torn apart black families, and created a cyclical poverty for them that holds many enslaved to a dependency on government because they have no where else to go. This is a racist crime, and yet the Republican establishment is too sheepish to even confront this issue!
As long as Republicans try to hide their faith, their defense of the defenseless, and their dedication to the Rule of Law and the US Constitution, they will continue to lose. Karl Rove and company needs to move along.
