This has got to be incorrect. How about 80% of the male white evangelicals who actually voted for a presidential candidate voted for Governor Romney?

Obama portrayed himself as someone more likely to see to the interests of the middle and lower income populations, while Romney was obviously the opposite. Romney was a bad candidate. He had nothing going for himself except that he wasn't Obama. As was stated very early in the primaries...Romney was the Democrat's dream Republican candidate.

Looking forward to the Latino revolution.....

Make us look like Mexico, Venezuela and Cuba.
What could be better than that ?

Except maybe Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia.

Hope and prosperity.....

Hank: The latinos are reclaiming what was stolen from them by The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

We wont Claim Florida ( although it was the Governor of Puerto Rico that discovered it.) You all can keep it.

Talk about what you can reclaim after you design and manufacture Trident Nuclear Submarines carrying Thermonuclear ICBMs with MIRV warheads.

Just remember that the Latinos actually did steal it from someone else...after slaughtering or enslaving them.

If you're truly interested in "righting every wrong" we could start by removing anyone with any european, african, or even asian genetics from the New World. If you're not interested in doing that then you're talking about nothing at all and everyone is equally right and/or wrong.

Don't fret....I still favor the single point generic solution to the travails of humanity.
Since the simple solution of a 2 mile diameter asteroid impacting in the Yucatan Peninsula area and repeating the global problem one caused 90 million years ago is unfair to the millions of non-human species who deserve to peacefully co-exist here, I think an extinction level lethal virus affecting only "God's Chillun" would suffice.

We could see if 9 billion people all praying at once would help us over the hump and refocus our attention on things that actually matter.
