There is a real reason why Republicans try to suppress non-white votes. This is something I've been thinking about posting for a long time, but I feel like most people aren't going to be able to understand it. Alas, I'll try to keep it short.

White people, generally, tend to vote Republican, especially if they are older than 45. That is the GOP's base. When any other group comes out to the polls, it hurts Republicans. This is why Romney lost in 2012, despite hitting every point in their strategic goal. The problem was that they were playing out of an outdated playbook (and he picked Paul Ryan).

So, the game plan is to make it easy for whites over 45 to vote, and harder for all other groups to vote. Think long lines, changing electoral districts, etc. Any systemic barrier, they will employ. It's how they're trying to win. Look at North Carolina, case and point.

Fvcking racists, as is plainly evidenced by the intent and impact of what they're doing there.

This guys math is sometimes spurious and over extrapolatory but he is thorough, has garnered credibility from commission boards, and seems to have explored both sides.

Multiple states and multiple reports contained in his bio (most recent as within the last 2 weeks):

That was from such a ridiculously tiny group it shouldn't be referenced. Equally outlandish statements are made by extreme partisans and haters of all stripes. Focus on that with merit, not on loons.

I would say the pandering and entitlements than only hurt minorities is the really devious acts of the democrats, you know the whole super predator remarks etc then you kiss azz to gain their votes and do nothing for them, it's been like that since oh I dunno forever? I guess the democrats never tried to change electoral districts or it's only racist when one group does it? see Gerrymandering in the United States

The idea that only "white men over 45" vote Republican cannot possibly account for the 60 million votes Mitt Romney got in 2012.

We actually should repeal the 19th. Also the 13, 14, and 15th amendments. The Government doesn't give you rights you already had them. The DOI is a gender neutral, race neutral document. The Constitution makes no mention of race or gender until those idiotic amendments that simply pandered to tribal groups in order to grab power from the people.

Can you elaborate what "measures", the Republican Party has taken to make it hard for minorities to vote? Long lines? North Carolina?

He didn't say only white men over 45. But white people over 45, especially men, make up the core of the Republican party. This is plainly obvious when looking at the crowd of any general (i.e. not specifically geared towards minorities or youth) GOP rally.

No I understand, you people are stupidly trying to attack a group by pointing out their lower percentage of minority races. If it's not an attack, I don't know what you are attempting to accomplish.

What strawman? It was a sarcastic response because I notice people try to portray the GOP as racist for having a smaller portion of minorities relative to the US population. That being said, I don't believe Democrats are actually racist against whites if you actually thought I was serious.

The GOP has a VERY small portion of minorities at this point. Thank Trump and the general demeanor of the party for the past couple decades. If you wonder why, ask a minority American. They know well why they are not voting Republican.

That's due to the media's bias and the race baiting of Democrats. Remember that Democrats were the one that broke up the black nuclear family, and had them hooked on welfare instead of helping them find work.

Though I will attribute some blame to the GOP for appealing to utterly stupid social conservative policies, which have driven a lot of intellectuals away from their base.

You misunderstand. The smaller portion of minorities in the GOP is due to their racist policies/tendencies. They aren't racist because the portion is smaller, that's just a symptom. And stuff like the voter suppression that the GOP tries to do just perpetuate the problem. There is a problem with racism in the GOP, so there are fewer minorities in the GOP, so they craft policy changes that disproportionately impact minorities in an effort to make their majority white base more effective, which furthers their image as a racist party, and the cycle repeats.

;That being said, I don't believe Democrats are actually racist against whites if you actually thought I was serious.

White people, generally, tend to vote Republican, especially if they are older than 45. That is the GOP's base. When any other group comes out to the polls, it hurts Republicans. This is why Romney lost in 2012, despite hitting every point in their strategic goal. The problem was that they were playing out of an outdated playbook (and he picked Paul Ryan).

So, the game plan is to make it easy for whites over 45 to vote, and harder for all other groups to vote. Think long lines, changing electoral districts, etc. Any systemic barrier, they will employ. It's how they're trying to win. Look at North Carolina, case and point.

Fvcking racists, as is plainly evidenced by the intent and impact of what they're doing there.

Welcome to the age of Identity Politics. The democrats have been playing to the racial identity and division game for decades now. They know they cannot win without immigration and diversity because they are the anti-white party. They clamor and whine for more amnesty and more diversity because it means more Democratic voters and a reduction in white political influence. The GOP is finally starting to play by the new rules and are becoming the pro-white party. About time, if you ask me.

White people, generally, tend to vote Republican, especially if they are older than 45. That is the GOP's base. When any other group comes out to the polls, it hurts Republicans. This is why Romney lost in 2012, despite hitting every point in their strategic goal. The problem was that they were playing out of an outdated playbook (and he picked Paul Ryan).

So, the game plan is to make it easy for whites over 45 to vote, and harder for all other groups to vote. Think long lines, changing electoral districts, etc. Any systemic barrier, they will employ. It's how they're trying to win. Look at North Carolina, case and point.

Fvcking racists, as is plainly evidenced by the intent and impact of what they're doing there.

Yet, in this election, it is the Republicans (only the Trump supporter Republicans not all of them) accusing the Democrats of rigging the election. Making it difficult for people to vote is en-democratic and un-american. There should be bi-partisan criticism for voter suppression.

Of the minuscule cases of "voter fraud" what makes anyone think it is a democratic thing?

Well, only rich white men should be allowed to vote so I don't see the issue tbh
