    So, China town is wrong? What about little Italy? Little Havana down in Florida?

    Does the US need some sort of cultural hegemony? (I bet I know what Kori's answer will be )

    How do you think China gets it's hands on top secret American military technology almost as soon as it is developed? Chinese American scientists and engineers. America is fine for the lifestyle, but there is no reason to be loyal to it. America is a cow to be milked and then eaten.

    The Italians came during the era when assimilation was still operative. I don't know about the Cubans. But I do know the Chinese.

    Of pandemic proportions.. LOL

    concerning hispanic growth in states awarded new ev's:

    on tsunami tuesday, perry took texas by 12.8%

    and that's WITH all those extra estebans and estellas electioneering

    ms martinez absconded with albequerque by 7.2

    batty jan brewer bagged arizona by 12.5

    dems were demolished in the grand canyon state, read:

    Arizona swings away from Democrats - Molly Ball - POLITICO.com

    rubio finagled florida by 19.2 (in a 3 way)

    and in nervous nevada, while the father advanced past awkward sharon angle, the son rory was rooted out of carson city by 11.8

    what do you think will be the effect of hispanic turnout in georgia, south carolina, utah?

    Naaaaaa... That couldn't be it.



    New population count may complicate Obama 2012 bid - Yahoo! News
    This article fails to take many things into account. It assumes that people relocating to red states are necessarily going to vote red. In reality they don't. Look at the west for example. The rocky mountain and rest of the west was once a strong republican hold, however, more people including a lot of Democrats have moved out West. We saw in the last election the pull that the west is gaining in Presidential elections and the trend is toward the west becoming more blue.

    not in arizona, new mexico and nevada

    in the silver state for example, dina titus was defeated giving republicans 2 of the 3 districts, sandoval downed rory reid by double digits, and harry (who won by 26 in 2004) almost lost to a wingnut

    california is about the only state to resist the wave and we didn't get more blue, we stayed about as blue as we've been

    in washington, in oregon, while dems still won, the margins were much closer than they've been

    and colorado and the rest of the rockies became a republican blowout

    that's 6 weeks ago, tsunami tuesday

    fyi

    Absolutely Nevada, New Mexico and even Arizona. Follow the changing demographics.

    You are trying to extrapoloate one election and claim a trend. The acutual results over the course of the last 10 years speak to a much different changing demographic.

    Demography is in your favor. But those new voters don't consider themselves Americans. There will be no unity. Only strife.
