Yes, big campaign contributions are needed to succeed in elections for major office, but what it comes down to is the vote. Whites remain close to 70% of the U.S. population, but it is a very divided group of voters. Meanwhile, the Hispanic vote can be largely wooed to the Democrats, because they are the party that has been most in favor of what is really amnesty for illegal aliens. And, blacks can be counted on to vote heavily for Obama because: 1) He is half-black, and 2) Anything that upsets "whitey" or damages whities' position in society is something a great many blacks favor. The day cannot come fast enough for the preponderance of the black American voting public when the white population becomes the minority . . so let all those non-white illegals come.
If whites could come together as one to vote for strict enforcement of our immigration laws, you would see the major politicians of both parties do an about-turn in their positions so fast it would make our heads swim. 70% of the vote is a landslide by any estimation, and the pols want more than anything to stay in office and ride that gravy train. But, of course, whites do not all think the same way or vote the same. We are divided up probably more than any other voting block (after all, we aren't a minority yet, we don't have the sensitivities yet toward being slighted or discriminated against, and white females can be as quick as any deomgraphic in wanting to see white males blamed and decimated). Whites could have their way if we stayed together like other groups do . . but we don't . . won't . . . and as whites continue to dwindle in numbers and the other groups grow in numbers and power, we will end up at the bottom of the heap. When that happens, just TRY to convince non-whites to practice "fairness and equality". They will laugh in our faces: "You had your time on top. Now, enjoy being trampled under our feet."
One comment I once heard is so true: "If you want to know the dangers of uncontrolled immigration, ask a Native american." They were too slow to resist the European invasion, and they lost their land. The same will happen to us in this 21st century.
