Changing Demographics of the United States

On election day, November 6, 2012 it became clear the voting demographics of the United States has changed. White working class, heterosexual, conservative, are no longer the majority. We are still out here, but we no longer hold the majority of the vote.

Instead of white conservatives holding the majority, a collection of special interest groups and liberals hold the majority.

How did obama win the election? Because he won the votes of liberals, blacks, hispanics, and gays. People are no longer unified behind a common idea. Instead, we are divided along racial, religious, ideology and economic lines.

People no longer vote for what is best for the nation, they vote for their special interest groups.

Hispanics

Why did obama win the hispanic vote? Because he talked about giving millions of illegal immigrants amnesty. A family member of an illegal immigrant voted for his cousin to stay in the nation, and that is why obama won the hispanic vote. Lets not worry about the fact that illegals are breaking the law.

If someone wants to become a US citizen, let them start by following our laws.

Illegal immigrants are not entitled to equal rights

There is an interesting article on CNN posted by Charles Garcia, Why ‘illegal immigrant’ is a slur.

The root of the article appears to be:

In this country, there is still a presumption of innocence that requires a jury to convict someone of a crime.

Mr. Garcia, I respectfully disagree. None U.S. citizens are not entitled to the same rights as U.S. citizens. This has been proven time and time again with Guantanamo Bay.

On one hand we argue people inside the U.S. deserve equal rights – innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

On the other hand, we detain people with no due process, no access to legal counsel, and then use torture on the people being detained. Where are the equal rights for the people being detained at Guantanamo Bay?

Where was the due process for Abdulrahman al-Awlaki? For those of you not familiar with Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, he was a U.S. citizen who was killed by a drone attack.
