Voting Deficit


For John, BLUFEveryone needs to vote, to scare the politicians.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From the LA Times we have an article on Latino Voters in California's Central Valley, who don't.  By Reporter Kate Linthicum, "The Latino vote is growing — but it could be much bigger".  The Reporter's point is that Latinos (and Asian Americans) don't vote in as many numbers as Caucasians and African Americans (Blacks).

My view is that if they stop thinking of themselves as Latinos and start thinking of themselves as being part Caucasian, who are inheritors of a great Anglo-Saxon approach to Government, they might vote more.  If we say Hispanic, are we not acknowledging the Caucasian genes in their bodies?

I will grant that for some recent immigrants there may be lingering concerns about Government as Government.  Oppressive Government.  Thus, these recent immigrants should get out and vote for Limited Government.  Not necessarily "smaller" Government—there are things Government has to do—but Limited in the degree to which it regulates our daily lives.
