By any standard, white voters’ rejection of Democrats in November’s elections was daunting and even historic.

Fully 60 percent of whites nationwide backed Republican candidates for the House of Representatives; only 37 percent supported Democrats, according to the National Election Poll exit poll conducted by Edison Research. Not even in Republicans’ 1994 congressional landslide did they win that high a percentage of the white vote.

Moreover, those results may understate the extent of the white flight from the Democratic Party, according to a National Journal analysis of previously unpublished exit-poll data provided by Edison Research.


I find this interesting, though many will accuse these people of racism even though they originally voted for Obummer. People wanted a change from the Bush years, perfectly understandable. However when they woke up and saw what the "change" was turning into they threw many of the demoncrats out of office; hoping for better. I suspect that the repuklicans will also disappoint them. What will happen then? Will the people wake up and realize that the 2 "parties" are just 2 sides of the same coin? Or will they try to toss the bums out yet again this time replacing Rs with Ds and still hoping for that change? What will it take for a viable third party to arise?

I hate it when people throw out the race card for every little thing. Some people, if you have ideological differences from them then you're a racist, if you didn't vote for Obama you're a racist, if you don't give them their way then they accuse you of being a racist. I've seen this kind of behavior from all walks of life and all different colors and creeds. It's just ridiculous.

In case you weren't paying attention - everyone fled the Democrat party last election. The only ones who stayed are the die hards who will never leave the party no matter what.

That's easy....

!. A realistic viable platform with a positive approach to growth; not just pissedoff ranting
2. A charismatic leader
3. Money....Money....and more Money
4. Money

The deal with political parties in general is that the main two are supported by the military industrial complex and mega corps: that supply the money to keep the political system afloat.
Any Grass roots movement that gets any traction will be co-opted by the "big Two" and destroyed just like the TPM was.

Black Conservatism is on the rise as well. Those who have opened their eyes and minds have realized how much damage was done to Blacks by the Progressive Left over the past 50 years. Some are joining the GOP and others are taking the Libertarian Constitutional Conservative route. Rightfully So!


The rising phenomenon of Black Conservatism is the subject of a new documentary titled, “Runaway Slave.” With release set for early 2011, a trailer for the movie has already received more than 200,000 views on YouTube

The film, produced by a Georgia-based documentary film studio, follows Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former NAACP Chapter President and self-professed Democratic radical turned pastor, political activist, Tea Party supporter and Black Conservative. Rev. Bryant is seen tracing the footsteps of runaway slaves through the Underground Railroad. From the slave ports of New Orleans to Chicago’s Cabrini Green to Martin Luther King’s birthplace in Atlanta, the film explores how 95 percent support of the Democratic Party has negatively impacted the Black community.

“This film was made to reveal the truth behind a 50-year-old lie that has caused an entire people to become slaves to one political idea and party,” said Rev. Bryant. “It looks to dispel the notion that government knows best, and is intended to create a mindset that can free all people and instill a sense of individualism regardless of their color.”

Sorry to bring the "race card" again, but most middle age white Americans, specially from the bible belt tend to vote Republicans.

While many blacks restrain from voting specially in the poor south last election they voted in greatest numbers than ever.

The reasons were obvious.

Now, my prediction is that black voters will go back to minimal voting in the south and that whites in the bible belt will dictate a Republican win.

Now when it comes to the growing minority of hispanic they are been worked out by democrats.

No surprise here. A lot of these people are moderates who often switch parties when they discover there aren't rainbows and unicorns waiving American flags. I think you will see a large number of these individuals fleeing the Republican party in a few years after they discover Republicans ignoring the number one concern of voters, the economy. Already we see signs of the incoming party ignoring the economy and instead going after health care reform.

Repealing "health care reform"(what a joke and example of doublespeak) is part of restoring the economy.

The reason the Republicans are going after the health care reform is very simple and easy to understand, fit is the center state for the next years to come, many states that are already strap for money with federal cuts in aid and budget deficits the Obama care implementation will cost billions that will add to their depleted coffers.

Here in Ga just to get the Obama care implemented is going to cost a whopping 1 billion dollars to the tax payer, this will mean more state taxes and special fees, cuts in existing services like Medicare to pay for Medicaid coverage as now is the public choice and cuts in education.

The problem here is that if Ga was a more prosperous state this will mean nothing, but we are already a wealth fare state with one of the highest unemployment rates and poverty.

The next federal budget will be dictated by Obama care spending that will affect anything that has to do with the US economy at local and state level and is big news.

Its becoming clearer that the Dem party is running "radicalized" with blinders on. Its even clearer now that they see the democratic process as a means to realizing their revolution.

So our choices are socialism or fascism.

We don't have any real choices. The Elite pick and chose who will best look after there best interest while appealing to the masses.

As for the op it reminds me of homosexuals supporting the Republican party....Not sure why as they don't support there want to have equal rights.

For reasons not unlike why republican women do not embrace the lefts ideas about the feminine or black rebublicans do not embrase left race politics.

Why can't it be more government vs less government?

That's what really at issue here.

If you want more government control in your life, continue on.

If you want less, make noise, shout, scream, write, post, rant, rave.

Sheesh!

Well, the Democratic party has been the hangout for the liberal progressive anti-white racists for a long time, as they are largely endorsed and manned by fellow members of the Communist Party USA, ISO, and others, that seek to change the Marxist class war, into race war, and push for special entitlements for anyone that's not white, and promote an anti-white agenda, even wanting to outbreed whites with their pro illegal immigrant agendas. Yes, the Dem Party is the anti-white racist neo-socialist party, and I guess whites are waking up to that, and leaving it.

Review American History. The Democratic Party has always been the party against minorities. In the late 50's and early 60's they "changed".
They changed and got the support of minorities yet they are still being oppressed, still being held down.
Not by White plantation owners but by social programs and entitlements. These have become the new masters and those who control such plans/programs are guaranteed the vote of those they are oppressing.

your source is a bit misleading.

it claims that 60% of whites nationwide backed republicans. That truly is only possible if 100% voted or were accounted for, which didnt happen.

I'd be willing to be that people of all races are bailing on the party system altogether.

God knows I wish that was true. The party system is stifling the voice of Americans. It needs to end. At a minimum, we need a third or even more parties so that real representation can be reinstated.

Here is a little food for thought I like to add to race based threads.
If you do not have time to read them all at least read the first few.
Many people do not know history the way they should and this gives power to those who would truly be better off with out it.

In 1789, Congress passes, and George Washington signs into law, a bill stating that no territory could become a state if it allowed slavery.

In 1792, the Democrat Party is formed. They are the party that promotes and seeks the continuance of slavery.

In 1808, Congress abolishes the slave trade in America.

In 1818, the Democrats become the majority in Congress. Using their majority, they begin to undo the 1808 and other anti-slavery decisions.

In 1820, the Democrat Party passes the Missouri Compromise, institutionalizing slavery in half of the territories.

For thirty years, Democrats pass multiple laws promoting and protecting slavery, culminating in 1850 with the Fugitive Slave Law. This law takes away all rights to jury trials, representation, and habeas corpus from any black who is so much as accused of being a slave.

In 1854, Democrats pass the Kansas-Nebraska act, opening up those territories to slavery, thus exceeding even the limits of the Missouri Compromise.

In 1854, the Republican party is formed to end slavery. Six of the nine planks in their fledgling platform statement deal with civil rights issues.

In 1857, the Supreme Court rules in Dred Scott v. Sanford that blacks are considered inferior and thus not covered by the phrase "all men" in the Declaration of Independence; that they are property covered by the 5th Amendment; and that no black—not even a free black—could ever become a citizen of the United States. The Democrats support the decision.

In 1861, Abraham Lincoln is inaugurated, and the anti-slavery Republican Party now controls the Executive Branch. The Democrat Party, in complete control of the South, splits the nation asunder and causes a war in order to maintain slavery. Innumerable horrors and 650,000 deaths are required to free the slaves and restore the union.

In 1865, Republicans pass the 13th Amendment, ending slavery.
100% of Republicans vote for it.
Even among northern Democrats, it receives the support of only 23%.

In spite of the 13th Amendment, Southern Democrats continue to deny blacks their citizenship rights, so...

In 1868, the 14th Amendment was passed, establishing citizenship and equal protection for all in Federal law.
100% of Republicans vote for it.
0% of Democrats vote for it.

In spite of the 14th Amendment, Southern Democrats continue to prevent blacks from enjoying the real fruits of this citizenship, especially the right to vote, so...

In 1869, the 15th Amendment is passed, establishing the right to vote for all people, regardless of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
98% of Republicans vote for it.
3% of Democrats vote for it.

From 1866–1875, the Republican Congress passes 19 civil rights laws. Democrats oppose them all.

In 1875, in order to counter the Democrats' passage of Jim Crow laws, Republicans pass the most sweeping civil rights legislation ever—the Civil Rights Act of 1875. Eight years later, the Supreme Court (mostly Democrat appointees) declares the act unconstitutional.

In 1876, Democrats take control of the House of Representatives. No more meaningful civil rights legislation is passed until 1964.

In 1892, Democrats take control of the White House and the Senate, and they keep control of the House. They immediately begin establishing Jim Crow laws and repealing all civil rights legislation passed by the Republicans. Any laws or amendments they cannot repeal, they skirt with poll taxes and literacy tests.

Beginning after the War, and thenceforward until 1935, ALL blacks elected to Congress are Republicans. In addition to those elected to Federal office, hundreds of blacks—all of them Republicans—are elected to state legislatures in the South.

In 1866, Democrats form the KKK with the express purpose of preventing the election of Republicans in the South. Democrats admit—under oath in Congressional hearings in 1872—that the Klan is a Democrat creation intended to restore Democrat control of the South. The Klan carries out this plan by means of a series of massacres at Republican Party meetings.

In 1901, Republican President Theodore Roosevelt invites Booker T. Washington to the White House. Democrats and the media are outraged.

In the 1920s, Republicans propose anti-lynching legislation. The legislation passes the house but is killed by the Democrat-controlled Senate.

In 1947, Republican businessman Branch Rickey, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers, hires Jackie Robinson (also a Republican), thus integrating Major League Baseball.

In 1954, Republican Chief Justice Earl Warren (appointed by Republican Dwight Eisenhower) authors the desegregation decision of Brown v. Board of Education.

In 1956, Democrats express their opposition to Brown v. Board of Education in the "Southern Manifesto." One hundred and one members of Congress—all but four of them Democrats—sign the manifesto.

In 1957, Republican President Eisenhower authors a Civil Rights Bill, hoping to repair the damage done to blacks and their civil rights by Democrats since 1892. Passage of the bill is blocked by Senate Democrats. When the bill finally goes through, it is significantly weakened due to lack of support from Democrats.

In 1960, Republican Senator Everett Dirksen authors a Voting Rights Bill, again, in an effort to undo the disenfranchisement of blacks by Democrats through poll taxes, literacy tests, and threats of violence by the KKK. And once again, Senate Democrats attempt (though in the end unsuccessfully) to block passage of the bill.

In 1964, Congress passes, and President Lyndon Johnson signs into law, the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is essentially the law originally authored by Eisenhower in 1957. Democrats, including still-serving Senator Robert Byrd (a former KKK member), employ a filibuster of the bill. Once the filibuster is overcome, a larger percentage of Republicans vote for passage than do Democrats.

In 1965, Congress passes, and President Lyndon Johnson signs into law, the Voting Rights Act of 1964. This is the law originally authored by Eisenhower in 1959. A filibuster is prevented, and passage of this bill also enjoys support from a greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats.

_________


So here we are at 1965, right around the time when black American voters completed the big migration to the Democrats. 100% Republican when they first began voting, 90% Democrat now—what the heck happened?

I do not think it is a white fleeing democrat party. Remember in 2008 when we changed the government from republican to democrat? It was because people are quickly tiring of their ( both sides) policies. Already republicans are back to their lieing, you dont think this will effect the 2012 elections? you bet it will. However I am with shear intense prayers adn hopes that we the people stop voting in the same shtz and get new government in place. Either or both parties are lower then scum. We either have the party to break usa or the party to empower the world and increase the rich either or they are both corrpted to the core. Wake up people elect the odd man/woman he or she who is new. Everyone of the politicians were at one time new, no political expereince, if they can figure it out so can the new guy or gale who has never been in upper government. It is us who choose our government, we can make a differnece from the bottom up, or from the top to the bottom, lets change it we can do it.

not all christians are nieve to a specific party some of us see outside the party and look to the man or woman running. Im curious if Palin makes the republican ticket will you vote for her. and if you would, why? is it because she is smart? ( we know this is untrue) is it because she is star status like Obama was? or maybe because she is a republican and you would vote republican regardless of what knowledge he or she has. and im talking basic knowledge for her.
