"The Death of White America?" That's Not Why Romney Lost

This article is adapted from an article published on abu al-fin

Probably the best piece so far on "The Death of White America" was published recently in the UK Daily Mail.
For Republicans struggling to understand their defeat at the polls, the most chilling statistic in this week’s presidential election was this: Mitt Romney won the biggest share of the white vote that any Republican White House contender ever has — and he still lost.

In an election battle that was defined as much as anything by race, Mitt Romney won the support of 59 per cent of whites, but just 27 per cent of Latinos, 26 per cent of Asian-Americans and 6 per cent of African-Americans.

Thirty years ago, being unpopular with ethnic minorities would hardly have stopped a white establishment candidate like Romney from trouncing Barack Obama. But back then, whites accounted for almost 90 per cent of voters. Now they make up just 72 per cent of the electorate, and that figure is shrinking by the year. _DailyMail

In the future -- if demographic trends continue -- it will be impossible for white candidates to win election in most areas of North America, without large numbers of votes from blacks, hispanics, and other ethnic "minorities." But in 2012, that is not necessarily the case. It may be a bit early in the demographic evolution of the US to proclaim "the death of white America."

Only about 54% of eligible voters actually voted. And of the white voters who did vote, almost 40% voted for Obama -- and against their own economic future. It is one thing to proclaim "the death of white America" when white voters voted in large numbers and for their own future benefit -- and still lost. But that was not the case in 2012, when large numbers of white voters did not vote, or even voted against the futures of themselves and their progeny.

We should also not overlook voter fraud, which played a very large part in the final vote tallies brought in by Democratic Party controlled precincts. If you look at large Democrat controlled cities such as Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Miami, etc etc it is clear that more votes were tallied than were actually cast in a valid manner.

Obama lost the states with photo ID laws

Military absentee votes delivered too late to count: could have changed entire election results

Strong photo ID voting laws favoured by strong majority of Americans

There are many reasons that Obama will be able to continue his corrupt and destructive reign over the US government for another 4 years. But it would be best not to draw exaggerated or premature conclusions from the election results.

For the near future, a better use of the time of US conservatives, centrists, and libertarians, would be to toughen up election laws to prevent future election fraud as much as possible.

BTW, giving up too early is one of the signs of self-defeating behaviours. Rather than giving up and proclaiming "The Death of White America," wouldn't it be better to think about how you could use your brain to guarantee a better future for yourself and your loved ones -- at least a better future than the one that Obama and his cronies have planned for you?

Focus on what you can do.

Toughening up election laws is the best thing to do?

How are we supposed to toughen up election laws in the places where it would be needed, when the liberals/blacks/browns control those areas?

Minnesota had a voter ID law on the ballot and it lost. Minnesota is getting more brown by the year. If it didn't pass this year, what makes you think there is any chance of white conservatives getting it passed in the future? Amendments to the state constitution require passage first by both houses of the legislature, then confirmation in a referendum...there were two Republican houses of the Minnesota legislature for the first time in memory as a reaction to Obamacare...the Republican legislators got voter ID on the ballot...and lost. They also lost control of one of the houses of the legislature, so there will be no more voter ID efforts in Minnesota in the foreseeable future.

Moreover, if you could prevent a few thousand or tens of thousands of crooked Democratic votes somehow - and I don't see how, as mentioned above - what difference does that make when a million non-whites legally emigrate here each year? A million new Democratic voters a year - voter ID laws are a joke compared to that.

If you have anything constructive to add, that would be welcome. But minimising the impact of voter fraud is not helpful, given that combating voter fraud is the obvious starting point to electoral reform.

Voter fraud, voter apathy, and persons voting against their long term best interests. If you could solve those problems, most of your excuses would be irrelevant for the next 20 years, until demographic change brings the need for more serious measures.

BTW, if you are not laying the groundwork for those more serious measures which are certain to be necessary in 20 years, you are pissing into the hurricane. Try to think of something constructive to do.

I'm doing something constructive. I'm challenging the ideas of a smart white guy who has an intelligent blog. It's part of the essential project of laying the intellectual groundwork for the actions that will have to be taken in the future.

I also think that the most constructive strategy now is a ju-jitsu-like strategy where, seeing that we cannot overpower the enemy with votes, we withdraw our opposition and let him fall of his own weight. Our opposition only allows him to use us as the excuse for his failures to improve the country. If we can't beat him, then let us step back and let him do right now what he would do to us anyway in 20 years, when we are a smaller population and more miscegenated and weaker.

So... how do we encourage white middle-class and upper-class whites to have more babies?

Because right now, that's the only out I see.

Hi there.

First time commenter. Speaking as a left-wing Canadian with a Conservative prime minister who I think is doing a decent enough job, I feel the thing is to stop thinking about America in pieces (i.e. Red/Blue, Left/Right, White/Black, etc) and focus on the whole.

I think Obama's doing a decent enough job (which is to say, the country's still standing after all the chaos of the last few years and showing signs of improvement), but he ran a crummy, reactive campaign. Worse than Romney, who didn't do that great a job either.

Anyway, not trying to rock the boat, just offering a (semi) international perspective.

Have a good day.

I imagine that the White population throughout America will in time congeal in the face of non-white hostility and bloc vote the way Whites already do in the American South in the face of a large hostile black population.

G Morrow: I hate to break it to you this way, but your "international" and "Canadian" perspective is about as original to an American as 95% of US media. Of course, if you do have something original and constructive to add to the conversation, you are always welcome -- as are any of my Canadian relatives (only a few of whom will speak to me after reading this blog). Otherwise, have another double shot of Yukon Jack. ;-)

Stephen: To a limited extent, that may happen.

anon anon: Having babies is the easy part. Raising them to be skilled, competent, independent minded, and wise, is more difficult. Even better would be the raise them to be dangerous.

The take away from the election of Al Franken in Minnesota is that close elections are stolen all the time and the Media covers for the Dems.

The take away from the re-election of Barak Obama is that Blacks will even abandon their religious values to vote for a candiate based only on skin color. For years, we have been astonished by the election of crooked and incomepent black candidates in the inner city. Now, we know why. Even Colin Powell put skin color above country.

Along those same lines, I feel personally insulted by black voters. If the number had been 85% - then I could at least have told myself that the blacks were not being so tribal in their voting patterns.

Why did I spend all that time telling my children not to judge people based upon the color of their skin?

Re: Al Fin -- "I hate to break it to you this way, but your "international" and "Canadian" perspective is about as original to an American as 95% of US media."

That probably has to do with the fact that American politics are covered in the media in such sensationalistic (which is to say, more interestingly) ways compared to things up here that I find myself more informed about them than I do things locally.

That said, I'm in complete agreement when it comes to Yukon Jack.

Re: Matt M -- "Why did I spend all that time telling my children not to judge people based upon the color of their skin?"

It's not a terrible lesson to pass along, even if you have issues with people putting race above all else politically (which I grant does happen, but probably not as much as you may think -- Powell, for example, probably agrees with Obama's policies, which, speaking as someone you'd identify as solidly Liberal, look more centrist from my POV).

Not that you might agree with me on that, but that's just my take. We've had government health care up here for as long as I can remember, so it doesn't seem like that big a deal. And growing up with a father and grandfather involved in local politics I'm a little more understanding when it comes to the nature of the beast, particularly taxes. Wish they were lower in Ontario (I still don't know that the HST actually does, aside from tacking 13% on purchases), but you gotta put in what you get out I suppose.

Have a good day.

Obama makes everyone close to him look bad and tawdry. That's why Obama's re-selection is such a pyrrhic victory for American blacks. This all-consuming dream is going to turn into a nightmare for unwitting black voters.

Okay, so almost 85% of blacks have IQs below 100. Is that any excuse?

If the Obama nightmare continues to develop as expected, the ensuing economic catastrophe is likely to discourage large numbers of hispanics from immigrating illegally -- amnesty or no amnest.
