    No. Only citizens can vote. However, we have many, and they're growing more rapidly than non-Hispanic voters, who feel threatened by all the anti-immigrant crap that the GOP is pushing through. They can get hassled, too, when Hispanics are targeted, as they are in AZ. So these voters are abandoning the GOP and making Presidential Elections a cake walk for Dem candidates.

    In short, racism is stupid, and not without certain drawbacks, as the GOP is now learning, the hard way.

    OP EDs are not facts, especially in Murdock-owned rags like WSJ.

    Affirmative Action, which has put millions of Minorities into the middle and upper middle classes.

    Immigration reform / amnesty, since many Minorities have been here one or two generations and would like to bring family members here, too.

    Minimum wage increases, since Minorities are more-affected by wage minimums.

    Judicial / sentencing reforms, since Minorities have higher arrest rates and conviction rates, for the same crimes, compared to White Americans.

    Many others, but you get the idea.

    Many of us are convinced, and that number seems to be growing.

    How about posting some facts to back all this up?

    I hope the poster doesn't respond to you ... this is common knowledge ... Does someone really have to give you stats to prove that blacks are disproportionately poor? Really? You're not sure about that? you belie your "moderate" label ... if you're going to engage in this crap, at least change it to conservative ...

    lets talk about the fact that the city of DC doesn't pay all its employees the so called living wage. So how in the hell can that call out a company for not doing it when themselves don't. Just another example on the mile long list of liberal hypocrisy

    your call of course, but I just responded to mac and said that I hoped that you didn't bother to respond to him ... these little stupid games by cons, including ones masquerading as moderates, get old ...
