I've been to a few rallies....3 over the yrs. and saw mostly white people,yeah there were women there, a few ethnic looking folks too.

Hot button issues: abortion issues and gay issues. They need to let them go, they are very divisive and have nothing to do with running the country....defense of country, infrastructure, support of industry and small business.

I'm fiscally conservative and don't vote on social issues.

The Dem's are extremely weak on defense and loathe the military, they hamstring businesses with more regulation and taxes.

The Repub's and Dem's are at a stalemate here. They need to do something to build confidence in this country. As it is, we have a black President who talks a great deal and accomplishes nothing except winning elections, hoarding money and attacking all those who disagree with him on his socialistic nature.

The Repub's need to take the social issues out of the platform and go to work on appealing to young men and women of all colors, denomination, ethnicity, gay and straight. White people are becoming a minority here, so they need to move quickly and not just talk about the Repub Party subsribing to the Big Tent theory.
