2012 Election Map if Only White Men Could Vote
[link to politix.topix.com]

Since Tuesday, Obama's re-election by a rainbow coalition of Hispanic, black, and female Americans has been the subject of endless comment by left and right alike.

His re-election depended on votes from groups who couldn't vote under America's original voting laws – until the 15th amendment gave non-white men the vote in 1870, the 19th amendment gave women the vote in 1920, and the 24th amendment abolished poll taxes in 1964. Without those amendments, the 2012 election would look very different, as the map above shows.

If only white men could vote, then just five states would have elected Obama - Washington, Oregon, Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts - which means that in those states alone, more than 50% of white men voted blue.

Poll Tax

In U.S. practice, a poll tax was used as a de facto or implicit pre-condition of the exercise of the ability to vote. This tax emerged in some states of the United States in the late 19th century as part of the Jim Crow laws. After the ability to vote was extended to all races by the enactment of the Fifteenth Amendment, many Southern states enacted poll tax laws as a means of restricting eligible voters; such laws often included a grandfather clause, which allowed any adult male whose father or grandfather had voted in a specific year prior to the abolition of slavery to vote without paying the tax. These laws, along with unfairly implemented literacy tests and extra-legal intimidation,[1] achieved the desired effect of disfranchising African-American and Native American voters, as well as poor whites.

Initially, the United States Supreme Court, in the case of Breedlove v. Suttles, 302 U.S. 277 (1937), found the poll tax to be constitutional. The 24th Amendment, ratified in 1964, reflecting a political compromise, abolished the use of the poll tax (or any other tax) as a pre-condition for voting in Federal elections, but made no mention of poll taxes in state elections.

In the 1966 case of Harper v. Virginia Board of Elections, the Supreme Court overruled its decision in Breedlove v. Suttles, and extended the prohibition of poll taxes to state elections. It declared that the imposition of a poll tax in state elections violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

While true of, say, a Christian church with all the denominations, the method to conquer nationsd is just the opposite - immigration.

Through immigration agents of change have been abolishing the Constitution.

this is true.
I am proud to be Hispanic says the Hispanic.
I am proud to be Black says the Black.
I am proud to be Asian says the Asian.
I am proud to be White says the "racist."
