Until the Republican party demonstrates that it gives a damn about black voters - or Hispanic voters - and stops actively courting the southern white bigot vote, it will remain irrelevant to minority voters.
    Can you educate me on what specific ways the Republicans are "actively courting the southern white bigot vote"? I live in NH so I'm not in the south nor am I a bigot, so I wouldn't know how they are doing that.

    What are the black and Hispanic voters looking for that the Democrats are delivering to them, by the way? I'm also curious about what is in their platform that is specifically beneficial to either or both of those groups, and are targeted to them and not the southern white bigots?

    And is Mia Love stupid for picking the Republican side to run on? From the sound of your post it would appear that the Republicans made a big mistake helping to elect a black woman if their target demographic is southern white bigots? And how do they explain their support of Tim Scott to all the white bigots in South Carolina? He seems an odd choice in the middle of the area they supposedly are trying to demonstrate an aversion for minorities in order to impress the white bigots.

    Didn't they get these messages from the Republican Party that you say are there, you know, the ones that are supposed to appeal to the bigots - or are they only courting the southern white bigots?

    Republicans tend to believe in individual freedoms and the welfare of the individual while the Democrats are more group security and group welfare orientated. At least that is my observation.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That was Yahoo's purpose when they published the article? Can you say which sections in the article back that up, like where did the writer say "see, Republicans are progressive now", or that sort of thing.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
