  •  On minority social conservatives (13+ / 0-)

    As many have noted there is a fairly large contingent of conservative blacks and Latinos, but they tend to be "Communitarians". That is people who are socially conservative, but believe in social justice and tend to support a social safety net. The current GOP and Romney in particular seem to be becoming increasingly Libertarian. So while a "Bush Republican" with his emphasis on "faith based initiatives", education reform, and immigration reform can reach the "communitarian conservatives" in the Latin and to a lesser extent black communities, Romney's and Ryan's "Ron Paul" Randian Libertarianism has little chance.

    -1.63/ -1.49 "Speaking truth to power" (with snark of course)!
