I am not surprised at all.

I think that the voter age population was almost 90% White in 1968 (link).  It was still extremely high during the 1980s (link).  The present and future demographics do not favor the republicans.  Hence, it is why I keep saying that democrats should not ignore states like Georgia and Texas.  Texas is less than 50% White while Georgia is heading in that direction.  California, which elected Reagan twice as governor and voted for Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Bush for president, has been less than 50% White for a longtime.

What we should realize is that the GOP knows how to campaign.  They do not take their base for granted while the democrats do.  They will do what they can to get their base voters to the polls while the democrats have talked about going after "moderate" republican voters.

Note that the GOP has gotten the White House after not winning the popular vote twice this century.  There have been talk about the Supreme Court, Russia and voter suppression.  Add the SCOTUS ruling on the Voting Rights Act to where we do not have the full protection of the act.  The GOP will use any method it can to win.

I have said that many red states should not be red states.  Yes, voters should and can vote.  However, democrats can run better campaigns to get their voters out to the polls.

The GOP plays to win and hates to lose.  It will do whatever they can to win even with Trump in the White House.


Biden maybe leading in the polls, but don't laugh at what they are saying.  These two are on target.  I expect the GOP to make a huge effort to win the White House and keep the Senate this year.

Lee Atwater is dead and has been for over 30 years.  However, his influence is very much alive.  Being weak and soft against the republicans will not work.


In more silly GOP politician news, we have this out of Virginia.

These demographic changes along with the protests are scaring them.  Yes, I meant to mention the demographic changes.  The GOP will eventually lose a lot of power.

We need to learn lessons from ones like a Harriet Tubman.


June 2, 1863: Harriet Tubman Frees Nearly 800 People

On June 2, 1863, Harriet Tubman planned and guided a significant armed raid (becoming the first woman to do so in the Civil War) against Confederate forces, supply depots, and plantations along the Combahee River in coastal South Carolina.


Whoever is paying her is wasting their money.

She is being who she is.

Democrats should not ignore Texas.



AMY GOODMAN: Sadiqa, very quickly, your own senator, Senator Rand Paul, opposing the anti-lynching legislation? We have five seconds.

SADIQA REYNOLDS: He is being who he is.

AMY GOODMAN: Well, Sadiqa Reynolds, we thank you for being who you are, president and CEO of the Louisville Urban League, speaking to us from Louisville.

Bad is not a strong enough word to describe his civil rights views.


Lynching is not a federal crime in the US, Sen. Rand Paul stands in the way
Lawmakers have tried to outlaw the act nearly 200 times.

House passes anti-lynching bill 65 years after the death of Emmett Till

Lynching is still not a federal crime in the United States, despite nearly 200 attempts by lawmakers to make it so. Now, as the nation grapples with the death of George Floyd, one lawmaker is standing in the way of allowing the historic passage of a bill that would outlaw lynchings: Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

The House has already passed an anti-lynching legislation, which is awaiting approval in the Senate. But on Wednesday, Paul told reporters he has concerns about the bill, which he said might allow more minor altercations to be punishable as lynchings.


There were statues taken down in Birmingham, Philadelphia and Richmond.  Now, we have Nashville.


Nashville protesters set fires, topple controversial statue
May 30, 2020

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Protesters in Tennessee’s capital set fires inside and outside a courthouse Saturday night and toppled a statue of a former state lawmaker and newspaper publisher who espoused racist views.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper declared a state of civil emergency after protesters set a fire inside Metro Courthouse. The flames were quickly put out.


Carmack was a politician in the early 1900s who wrote editorials lambasting the writings of prominent Tennessee civil rights journalist Ida B. Wells.


Guys, I’ve read a couple of analyses that conclude Dubya is so appalled at this current clown’s conduct as POTUS that he may, in fact, endorse Joe. I guess the idea would be to save the Grand Old Party from total destruction l.

Wouldn’t THAT be something?!?!

I have felt that there are quite a few republicans who are concerned that Trump is ruining their brand to where the GOP will be hurt for a generation.  While Pelosi was very slow to start impeachment proceedings, I think that some in the GOP would not have shed a tear if Trump was convicted in the Senate.

No matter how one may agree with what Bush is saying, let's not forget what he did during his presidency.  It is similar to the Reagan years.  I should not forget what happened during his years though I feel that Trump is worse.

I am also glad that clueless mayor is on his way out of office.  I will be very happy is if he is never again in any office.
