    North Arlington is literally a stone's throw away from me. The last girl I dated lived there I work in Newark about ten mins away. Is New England really a suburb of NJ??? We don't usually consider ourselves part of New England. I've lived in Boston, NYC, and Tampa. I'm surprised I'm not a raging liberal but you can find Republicans in each of those towns. Especially Boston. Though it's getting harder and harder to in NYC.

    I worked in Newark for 3 years, on Broad Street, overlooking Washington Square Park. Woo those were scary days. I hear it's improved since then.

    LMAO my husband & I moved to New England, I'm not from here. I was raised in Morris County.

Three, with one out of 5 people receiving some kind of public assistance, the carrot has proved to be an effective tool. Four, with 60% of the nations illegal alien population living in California, the propaganda machine has been in full force, which is not going to favor "order of law" positions the Republicans hold.

    California is a lost cause for at least two generations IMO. I'd love to see Republicans do a better job here, but it's really only going to be the small races, and as long as liberal/progressives hold a super majority in Sacramento, there is nothing Republicans can do to stop anything the liberal/progressives want to do. They have absolutely no purpose there, so it's pretty hard to attract candidates willing to battle to arrive and a job they can't do anything with.
    In reality, unions own the state, the liberal politicians are bought and paid for by union money. I remember a number of years ago when we were going through our typical budget crisis, the legislators were locked into the capitol, but they were allowed out to consult with union reps. Yes, the unions write our laws and control our budgets, that's yet another reason why the state is so screwed up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You may hold that view, but it generally tends to work out that divided communities tend to vote for people they see as one of their own. That's why half the Minnesota legislature is Nordic, that's why south Minneapolis is represented by a Muslim Somali, why Harlem is represented by an African American, and why utahs congress people are all Mormons.

    You can bash me all you want for stating reality, that doesn't change anything. A Latino district is unlikely to elect a bitter white clinger to assembly.

    How are republicans even going to get through the door? If Latinos are coming in with politics that favors liberals and they won't even consider anyone but themselves there is no way to gain any ground with them. The republicans might as well walk away from those absurdly racist people and focus their attention elsewhere.

    Re: Your lean and what kind of district/state that you live in

    I'm pretty lucky. My area has been traditionally republican for decades, but pretty moderate for the most part. Howard Baker was a big force for decades and is still widely admired - a RINO by current standards. Our Congressman is very conservative, but more libertarian than Tea Partier - I've voted for him for over two decades now, does a good job serving the community. So I'm left of the population but for the most part we still elect pretty moderate types, including the democrats. In the 2010 madness we got two really far right wing nutjobs elected to the state Senate, but they both got ousted the next election by sane republicans, which is a good sign the voters around here remain rational.

    I wasn't aware it was "racist" to vote for a politician that represented your interests.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    He said republicans lose because they don't put up Latino candidates.
