American public are the losers of election, not GOP
The columns on the Nov. 11 Perspective pages by Esther Cepeda and Kathleen Parker seem to have the same theme of why Mitt Romney and the Republican Party lost the presidential election.
First of all I don't believe that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party lost the election -- the American people will be the losers. Both writers seem to believe that the GOP needs to be more inclusive of blacks, Hispanics, Asians, gays, young people and women in order to win a presidential election. Since when are these groups not Americans first? Who do they need to be inclusive of next -- Irish Americans, French Americans, Slavic Americans, short Americans, tall Americans?
Or are all of these other groups considered Americans first and they are concerned about the welfare and best interest of the country? If the Democratic party is so inclusive of these groups why is the unemployment rate for blacks and Hispanics much higher than other groups? With contraceptives being provided by the Government why are 40 percent of children being born out of wedlock?
With all of the other serious issues facing this country it appears that the Democratic party has been successful in fragmenting the American population and is not interested in what is best for all citizens. If the president is going to be elected on the basis of demographic maybe we do not need elections anymore we can just take the census every four years, tally the groups, and declare a winner.
