Or Steve King's recent comments on Mexican immigrants. Or cuts in programs for the poor (and blacks are disproportionately poor). Or questioning whether Obama was born here or is a real American? Mister, did you really have to ask?
    That was it? That explains one group of people voting as a bloc for the people who pander to them and give them things? Do you ever think about what happens when they realize that most of the left acts out their racism through low expectations?

    Earlier I wrote, "In your opinion should temporary politicians be allowed to change the demographics of the country for their benefit and against the will of the people?"

    You should have just said you are fine with changing the demographics of the nation in your bid for power and control. Instead you dodged.

    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.
    Those are not minority issues. They are leftist issues. It is all about wealth redistribution in exchange for votes.

    Simply put: Does Del a Raza oppose laws like that in AZ and other anti-immigration effort? Of course.

    Does NAACP support and defend Affirmative Action, decry incarceration rates among Blacks, promote food and housing assistance for the poor? Of course.

    Hence, there are in fact many minority issues, which the GOP is on the wrong side of reflexively. So the question is, in my mind, not why 70% of minorities voted Dem; it's why did 30% vote Rep????
    You have made the case that the Left makes Socialism's chains look appealing.

    any [one, few, many] who have all direct power will become tyrannical.

    no, i don't think they're evil (the comment was togure in cheek), although, some people do say evil things, don't you think?

    I don't know what to say about your second comment on the concentration of power, other than we are a society and society isn't just a collection of individuals .... society first and foremost is comprised of relationships (not just between individuals, but statuses, or positions, as well if not principally), social interaction, and that requires certain agreements, understandings, that sometimes have to be challenged, at other times enforced ...

    Why is it that every time you don't understand something someone says, they're dodging? ... trust me, you're the problem ...

    you stated your a man of the people, well thats fine, however i am also a man of the people and the states.

    i dont like democratic government which is a concentration of power..........the people only

    i prefer republican government which is the separation of powers.......the people and the states, as the founders created......direct power in only the people is a dangerous thing.
