The Growing Hispanic Vote.

Updated on August 7, 2015

It Wouldn't Help Other Minorities, Like Blacks.

The plan by Republican Party leaders to permanently corral the Hispanic vote narrowly revealed itself last night at the party's presidential debate, with Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio demonstrating a kind of smooth cooperation and friendship by not counteracting each other, let alone contradicting one another in their respective responses to many questions.

On the question on Immigration, Marco Rubio pleaded for people, who have been waiting for fifteen years to come to America legally...and Jeb Bush insisting on the inflow of migrants to help the country in a general sense.

The combination of the two suggestions would mean that the two men could run on the same ticket, with Jeb Bush as president and Marco Rubio being his Vice-president; and when Bush's term expired after eight years, Rubio would be elected with the growing Hispanic vote, plus that of the party's loyalists and independents.

That would completely throw the normal election voting strategy out of balance for the rest of the electorate, while the Hispanic influence remained stronger each and every election year for the Republican Party to remain in power for at least 16 years, using that plan devised by Reince Priebus, Karl Rove, John Sununu, and others.

Now, where would that leave minorities, like blacks, in the political system? The scenario would be tantamount to neutralizing their vote in almost all elections, as the polls would be lopsided in favor of one party on every single occasion.

Marco Rubio's assertion that so many Hispanics wanted to come to the U.S.; and for what? To swell the vote of a political party? Or why won't they stay where they were and made it a better place for themselves?

America, as it has been known, was a land of opportunity; but it couldn't take every family from all the nations south of the border and the rest of the world.

Therefore, when that plan reared its ugly head during the present political campaign cycle, it must be vehemently opposed especially by African Americans, who would tend to be at a loss, for reasons of the country's political fabric being altered so drastically and dramatically, with regard to an ever growing Hispanic vote coming from the South.

      The thing that gets me is how we are told that it's all right to import millions of new voters--that they won't dramatically skew the balance of political power in this country, that they all have the same hopes, fears, dreams as the rest of us, etc.

      And then those same people who tell us that turn around and tell the GOP that they'd better change their message quick or they're going to alienate the Growing Hispanic Vote.

      Sorry, you can't have it both ways. Two diametrically opposite viewpoints can't BOTH be true. In other words, we, the American People, are being lied to. And we should be hopping mad about that.

      I have no problem with Hispanic voting, or any other races, as long as they satisfy the legal requirements of voters.

      I suspect that many illegals are voting in our elections, do you think that should be left on its own, or should we require proof of voting eligibility.

      The illegal aliens are getting preferential treatment over legal immigrants that have to spend more time and money going through the legal hoops. Most of them are denied citizenship because of quotas.

      Should illegals be given preference to these legal immigrants?

      What you are saying is factual; but The Republican Party, as stated, has a plan to change that around. It could do so by pairing Jeb Bush and Marco

      Rubio on a presidential ticket to achieve that goal. The country would blind sided by such a conundrum.

      To my understanding the Hispanic vote currently favors the Democrat party in most national elections so I believe it would take a major paradigm shift among the Hispanic community for the Republicans to gain any real advantage there.
