America’s Changing Demographics

America’s Changing Demographics

Ordinarily election analysis would not be a hot topic five weeks after an election, but there was nothing ordinary about the November 6th election. Conservatives are still scratching their heads and wondering how this could have possibly happened. An incumbent president with unacceptable unemployment rates, soaring national deficits, and someone who has assaulted the very fabric of liberty that Americans are known to love should have been easily defeated. This was not the case. He handily defeated his opponent by swaying vast majorities of demographics his way – some of them were understandable; others were not.

I fear that our women have become “accustomed” to compromising the American Dream in exchange for a safety net that was meant to fill a temporary need. Safety nets are a good thing but finding too much comfort in them can produce dependence.

Perhaps the most puzzling demographic was the single women and single mothers vote. Many of the pundits attribute this to the campaign’s “War on Women” strategy. As a woman, however, it is hard for me to believe that those of my gender would believe such hype. This particular demographic is even more puzzling when one considers that the unemployment rate among young women rose to 14.4% under Obama (well above the national average). Worse, according to the 2011 annual report on White House Staff, women under this Administration earned 18% less than their male counterparts. Somehow I don’t think this is what the Women’s Lib movement had in mind. And it is bewildering why those pioneers of the “movement” haven’t become outspoken advocates against an Administration that personifies the very standards they spent decades fighting.

Finances are difficult for many Americans today, but they are more difficult if you happen to be a woman. Logically, such statics should inspire discontent not votes. Rather than submit to the thought that my gender is dim-witted, easily influenced from the likes of the still wet-behind-the-ears Ms. Fluke, or perhaps unworthy of the right to vote, I remain convinced that there is an explanation for this puzzling demographic.My search for understanding led me to two historical accounts. In 1776 our Founders made a very profound statement in our Declaration of Independence that was true back then and is true today. They stated: “…that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” Of course they proceeded to state that “it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government.”

Another incident worthy of mention occurred after Moses delivered the children of Israel out of their 400 years of slavery in Egypt. Due to their rebellion, they spent 40 years wandering in the dessert before being allowed into the Promised Land. During this time God sustained them with manna from heaven. Instead of being grateful for their deliverance and the opportunities that lay before them, they complained about the manna. In Numbers 11:5 they said: “We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic.” Of course they forgot the bondage and the cruelty they suffered at the hands of the Egyptians – not to mention the slaughtering of their male children. It seems as if this is the perfect ancient example of our Founder’s statement about being willing to suffer rather than abolishing the forms to which they had become accustomed. We understand that Moses had his hands full liberating the children of Israel from Pharaoh but apparently he also had his hands full liberating them from the lifestyle to which they had become accustomed.

We are honored to welcome Rosann Salanitri as a contributing writer to The Daily Rant.

In 21st century America, no one is slaughtering our children or forcing us to work as slaves but surrendering liberty for government entitlements and a false sense of security will lead to a form of bondage none-the-less. I fear that our women have become “accustomed” to compromising the American Dream in exchange for a safety net that was meant to fill a temporary need. Safety nets are a good thing but finding too much comfort in them can produce dependence.

In a day and age when marriages fail at a rate of over 50%, many have swopped their reciprocal dependence on their mate to dependence on government programs. The sacrifices made to a Nanny state may be humane to some extent but they are the moral equivalent of the onions and leeks in Egypt. By becoming accustomed to this type of existence, many women have become fearful of total independence. We look back and marvel at the free Israelites who preferred the meager comforts of bondage to the challenges of freedom, but today’s female voting demographic provides and interesting parallel.

Unfortunately, the demographics of the 2012 election tell me that many women in America may be more inclined to suffer since evils are still sufferable, but I thank God that there are some among us that understand that it is our right, it is our duty, to throw off such government. And when the likes of Ms. Sandra Fluke come to their senses, I pray that those of us who understand and value liberty will have prevailed. Then we can say to Ms. Fluke: you kept your birth control but we kept your liberty.

Manna in a free and liberty-loving nation may be a little hard to swallow at times, but isn’t the American Dream worth more than onions and leeks?

    If the left really thinks Obama is their savior (small s) they should all bend over, grab their ankles and kiss their a$$es goodbye.

    Rosann, great analogy. The Israelites never outgrew their desire to be dependent on a government. After wandering in the desert 40 years sustained by manna and quail, they took posession of the Promised Land and for 500 years, 1400 to 900 BC, they had no government,only tribal leaders. The entire male population was the army and whenever a war leader was needed, God would raise up a Judge. They were dissatisfied and demanded God give them a King. It didn’t take long for the Kings to overtax them and abuse them. And it didn’t take long for the Kings to lead them to destruction, but they never asked to return to NO GOVERNMENT and being governed by and dependent on God.

    Welcome, Rosann! Your article was indeed well received. I hope to read more of your insights on many issues. The Latino women, but NOT ALL, as well as majority of black and white minority votes were expected. It’s a shame that Romney could not win but under the circumstances, the freebies and promises of Non-Family values won out. Generally speaking, our county’s values and morals have been changed over the past few years but more so in the last four years. Through intimidation and demoralization, what else could happen while some real Americans slept. We are a gullible Nation as Nakita Khrushchev said in 1959 and pounded his shoe on the UN table. “…We’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” Let us pray we are not too late and can come back to good morals and regain the will to stand up for our Constitution.

    An excellent article giving a deeper understanding of what happened with the single female vote. Like another commentor, I believe the election was stolen. There was no question that extensive voter fraud existed. If in selected key districts in key states, fraud could have done it but that is another topic. There is no question on how segments of the population voted and this cannot be ignored. Roseann Salanitri’s insight and historical examples were well done and I’m looking forward to more of her observations.

    Rosann, excellent article. I don’t understand how supposedly smart, intelligent women can believe all the drivel that is thrown at them by the lame stream media. We need more women like you taking the lead.
    Reply to Judy Hamby – I’m gagging, too. Can’t believe it – the biggest fraud ever to come on the scene and he’s voted person of the year. Give me a break. Crazy, crazy world.

    I think many women, and men also, listen to sound bites and are not informed when voting. Thomas Jefferson said " If you wish to remain ignorant and free, you want what never was and never will be" The liberal media will continue to try and keep citizens dumbed down, it is our job as patriots to educate our fellow countrymen. An educated electorate would not tolerate our present political leadership.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind comments. On Conservative News and Views, it seems only our adversaries chose to post. This is refreshing and I am looking forward to working in a venue with patriots who are like-minded. I truly believe that together we can make a difference and turn the tides.

    An interesting perspective by a woman about women in our country. Well worth the read.

  9. DLB December 19, 2012 at 2:30 pm #

    I am very impressed by your piece as well as your many accomplishments! I wholeheartedly believe that what you say here, Ms. Salanitri, is 100% true.

  10. Susanna Harter December 19, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    Personally, I think the election was stolen. I do not believe the majority of voting Americans favor what we've been through the past four years. That said, there is a large enough minority that seem to buy into the hype put out by the left and the msm that it's disturbing. Women benefit in a free society that sees them as and treats them as equals, not under a "protective" patriarchy that treats them as unable to run their own lives.

    Rosann, welcome aboard. Your commentary will be a wonderful asset along with the very perceptive view points of Mychal Massie & Dan Bubalo.

    As a conservative minded woman who also happens to be Catholic I must tell you that it is very disheartening to acknowledge that the success of Obama’s presidential re-election had a lot to do with the large support of fellow Catholics. Never mind the fact that this man along with his party are adamantly against God and nearly all of His morally ordained laws, but he has since been chosen by Time Magazine as “Person Of The Year”.

    The Democrat party has spent the last 65 years investing all of their time & energy in courting the full support of African-Americans, and with great success. By the early 80’s the focus was then centered on cornering the attention of the large influx of Hispanic presence. When the 90’s rolled around, the newest member of the victimized liberal plantation was then directed on “the woman’s vote”. Even though the policies of the Democrat party breeded a generation of young, uneducated mostly African-American & Hispanic unmarried mothers, the most outspoken advocates of their beloved support for abortion were & still are primarily wealthy white, Ivy league educated, liberal minded women AKA Feminists!

    To this very day, they continue to assist Obama, the most prominate presidential defender of abortion in the history of the United States to consistently bang the drum of “Reproductive rights” & “A women’s right to choose”. While successfully centering abortion as the main issue affecting American women, they have won the battle in further destroying our society and draining our economy by forcing American tax payers into funneling our hard earned tax dollars through the modern day infant death camps of Planned Parent Hood!

    None of the children of the Israelites died because Israel kept their first Passover. They believed Yah's Words. They undoubtedly would have liked to go back to Egypt because those who wanted to kill them were at the bottom of the Red Sea. Life is so much easier without enemies! Unfortunately, we here in America need to get used to the idea that we have many enemies….even among our own! It seems we have forgotten that our liberty was bought by those who were willing to die for it. They handed it to us and we have irresponsibly neglected the hard work, the vigilence and perseverence required to maintain it. Where are the people who would be willing to overthrow the government in this country? We have nothing but trash in positions of leadership. I believe many women in this country are just tired of it all.

    Dan is right on the money.These enlightned women have done more harm to their fellow women, then good. They are not the only ones swayed by liberal brainwashing. Blacks and Hispanics are willing to trade their chance for independence, better life styles, pride.etc for free cell phones, food stamps,housing,free birth control and abortions etc. God help the liberals if and when these people wake up and realize that they have been used. Today is no different for them then it was 150 years ago.Master no longer beats them and they get free food and lodging etc without having to work for it This in exchange for the chance to achieve the American dream, a stake in America, pride in themselves and their families. Pretty damn sad.

    Nothng “average” about this lady.

  15. Judy Anderson Hamby December 19, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    Changing the subject a wee bit – just heard Hussein Obama is Time's Person of the Year. AND the person who made the announcement compared that man to Ronald Reagan. I almost puked. I know Time is liberal but comparing him to Reagan? No excuse. Gag.

    • Berettababe January 2, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

      That is disgusting. This Kenyan misfit? Go back to your room at the asylum!!

  16. Dan Galvin December 19, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    We've had 50 years of Liberal women brainwashing America's women on T.V like Rosie O'Donell, Oprah Winfrey, The Women of The View , Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer etc. etc. etc… We are now seeing our women fold and being led to the slaughter.

    • Judy Anderson Hamby December 19, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

      Dan, this woman won't fold. They can lead me to the hanging tree. Of course my name isn't Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer.
