(Feb. 10, 2013) — “Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” — Isaac Asimov

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” — H. L. Mencken

The information we are presenting here is statistical, not racial and is not meant to be discriminatory in any manner whatsoever.

From the Battle Ground Website published in September of 2012, a few weeks before the November election, comparing the 2008 election to the 2012 election, we read:

“What’s missing in all the analysis is who did not show up in the 2008 election: White voters. Looking back at those results, every voter turnout rate by race (relative to eligible population) was up versus 2004 except the white vote according to Pew Research (April 30, 2009). Blacks were up +4.9%, Hispanics were up +2.7%, Asians were up +2.4%. But the percentage of White voters who showed up at the polls relative to who was eligible dropped -1.1% (Census Bureau, Current Population Survey, May 2010). This has nothing to do with minorities making up more or less of the electorate. This is simply saying from 2004 to 2008 White voter registration (which actually dropped 104k) and actual turnout of White voters (which increased 500k) did not keep up with voting age White population increases. Within this drop of White voter turnout, over 3x as many men as women comprised those voters staying home in the election. But the bottom line is one of the advantages Barack Obama enjoyed in 2008 was that a meaningful percentage of white voters simply stayed home.” (source:

The fact is, there is a significant electoral shift in the population of the United States and that shift has had a direct effect on the outcome of elections. America is shifting to the left as the minority population increases and the white population decreases, not only in numbers, but in votes cast.

Forty years ago, the white population voting Democratic was 77%, while the non-white population voting Democratic was 23%. However, in 2012, the white population voting Democratic is now 56% and the non-white population is 44%. In contrast, the white population voting Republican was 96% to the non-white population of 4%. In 2012, the White population voting Republican 89% and the non-white population voting went from 4% to 11%. The non-white population voting Democratic went from 23% to 44%, while the non-white population voting Republican only went from 4% to 11%. (source:

The answer to the inordinate rise in the non-white population voting Democrat is very easy to explain. The Democrats bought the non-white vote and the white women vote with “free stuff” paid from the public treasury and specifically targeted legislation to “even the playing field,” the Democrats say. The same can be true for the white voter voting Democrat. From FDR’s New Deal and Social Security, to Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, to the Obama Regime’s rapid move into outright socialism, the amount of tax money being spent on buying votes has so exploded the national debt and deficit that it will never be paid and will lead the nation into irretrievable bankruptcy. It is an avalanche that can’t be stopped, politically, financially, or constitutionally.

As we dig a little deeper in the statistics, we see that white voters make up a much smaller percentage of the electorate in 2012 as they did in 1980. The white voter made up almost 90% of the voting population in 1980 but in 2012, makes up less than 73%. The white voting population has dropped about 0.5% every year for 32 years (see the graph at the beginning of this article).

The shift to the left can also be laid at the feet of white men. Not only has the white vote decreased, but as stated above: “Within this drop of White voter turnout, over 3x as many men as women comprised those voters staying home in the election.” However, the statistics show that white men tend to vote more Republican than Democrat. So where is the white male come voting time? Is he engaged in video games, hard drugs, chasing women, chasing money, or just generally disinterested, or disenchanted with the whole voting idea and politics in general? Fill in the blank.

In the last election it is estimated that some 3,000,000 conservative voters stayed away from the polls because Romney wasn’t conservative enough. The same thing happened with John McCain. This kind of logic shows a peculiar kind of political naiveté. Those 3,000,000 conservative voters who chose not to vote, plus the votes of the white male who stayed home, might very well have shifted the election to Romney and the Republicans would have controlled the executive branch and one half of the legislative branch of government. The outcome of this arrangement would have been far different than the next four years will be with Obama controlling the executive branch and the Democrats controlling the Senate, especially given Obama’s King-like proclivities. All the political pressure will fall on the House of Representatives and depending on their courage or lack thereof, will determine just how far Obama will push his radical agenda for the next four years.

“The Parallax Prophecies” predicts that if this trend continues wherein the white vote continues to drop, white men stay away from the polls and misguided conservative voters choose not to vote because a conservative candidate isn’t conservative enough, the Democrats will own the political landscape for the next 40 years, just as they did from FDR to President Reagan (1981-1989) and the Newt Gingrich Congress in 1994.

Right now 106 million productive Americans support 88 million unproductive Americans and God knows how many illegal aliens. The number of unproductive Americans is still growing as government grows, not only in size but also in bought votes. We have now reached the point of no return where there are more votes to support big government than there are to support a smaller, less intrusive, less expensive government. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to determine who wins in this scenario.

Some liberal college professors are already calling for dumping the Constitution. If the Democrats (Liberals) own the political landscape for the next 40 years, there will never be a chance to return America to the Constitutional Republic it once was. Traditional America will essentially be dead and a totally secular government and electorate will take its place where the mob rules and the rule of law is whatever the mob wants. Government always enables the mob ….. for votes.
