You said that most of them did not vote.

But, many of them did.

And enough of them did vote and Obama was re-elected despite a bad economy.

I refer to the fastest growing voter blocs we have.

These are facts, I never disagree with facts, only with perception.

My perception, is that a large part of their belief system is not being addressed, and that is the part that is naturally anti the liberal agenda.

They are a more religious, and more self reliant lot than many citizens -- that message is not getting to them, and that portion is not motivated to negate those who are getting the message.

I would never say there is not a problem, again denying the obvious is IMO silly.

I thought we were discussing the portion that did not vote, or the portion I feel that did vote, but were ill served with the information that got to them.

This should not be a black hole for the Republican Party. This should not be a group that sees conservatives in general as an enemy.

Again, it IS a problem, it should not be.
