Turnout in My Detroit-Area Suburb

By Debbie Schlussel
I voted just after 11:00 a.m. at my suburban Detroit area precinct. There are several precincts at my polling place, and I’VE NEVER SEEN IT THIS CROWDED!
Turnout is VERY high. When I left just after 11:00 a.m., they’d handed out 179 ballots in my precinct. On Election Day 2004, a Presidential Election, only 133 people voted in my precinct the entire day. If turnout is like this all over the Detroit area, that is NOT good for Republicans or Proposal Two. If you have not voted yet, PLEASE VOTE FOR PROPOSAL TWO. It will be close!


My city is a majority Black city (they tend to vote overwhelmingly Democratic in this city), with pockets of Orthodox Jews who mostly vote Republican. Most of the turnout I saw were Black voters. I heard some of them say that “so much is at stake in this election.” I believe they are referring to Proposal 2, which will end so-called affirmative action racism, sexism, and bigotry in public contracting, hiring, promotions, and college admissions.
The Michigan Republican Party and its candidates made a mistake by not endorsing Proposal 2. Voters for Prop 2 are predisposed to the conservative philosophy. But they were shunned by the GOP. On the other hand, the Michigan Dems and trial lawyers used Prop 2 to mobilize their voters to the polls. They were smart; the GOP dumb.
Whenever the GOP tries to out-liberal the liberals, they always get burned. Big-time. Watch for that in Michigan, where I predict Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm will be re-elected, as will Dem U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow. The GOP blew it. Ironically, one of the few GOP statewide officials who will get re-elected by a landslide is Attorney General Mike Cox. He is the only statewide GOP elected official to endorse Proposal 2 (which I predict will also pass–with your votes).
Is there a correlation? Time for the Republicans to put two and two together.
Remember, VOTE YES ON PROPOSAL TWO. Do NOT vote for liberal trial lawyer Marc Shulman for Supreme Court.

It’s time to move out of the Detroit area, Deb. It’s only got a few years left before it totally sinks into the abyss. When that happens, Detroit will resemble South Africa and Zimbabwe, where the only whites who are left will be forced to flee with what they can carry in their cars and on their backs. It’ll make the “Fall of Saigon” look like a picnic.
BTW, I see all these commercials with Jeff Daniels in them extolling Michigan and encouraging businesses to move there. What part of the state does he live in? Does he live in reality? Because, based upon what I’ve seen, I doubt that Michigan has much time as a state to survive, either.

Debbie I don’t see how you’re going to meet Mr. Right in that neighborhood.

This is why the Dems are successful. California is a blue state because, the people vote. The conservatives out here don’t give a damn, and they allow the lefties to take away our guns. I give up

However wrong, and or sexist and or racist etc “Affirmative Action” is, one should be careful in it’s removal etc.
The Socialist and Communist of the “left” exploit the uneducated self-segregating minorities living within the United States. The grand demographic of the leftists reproduce at greater rates than that of native born citizens, specifically those coming out of a nuclear family, or at least a family with honor of something greater than self. Hispanics, on whole, reproduce at a greater rate than that of blacks, and Middle Easterners at an even greater statistical rate of Hispanics. The left is always crying out for “democracy” and the “power of the people.” However trite, or Communist that sounds, the mindless automatons created by the left by into the crap. This further reinforces and reproduces a vapid culture.
What’s at stake?
Anything and everything.
Pure democracy period. Pure democracy is mob rule. Create your own mob, and keep reproducing…and reproducing…etc…eventually your mob will rule. Couple that with the inherent soft racism, and even overt hatred of those who claim “victimhood”, well, do you HONESTLY believe there will be reciprocity once Caucasian (those with milky tones not Caucasians with mocha complexions)America has factually LESS in their mob??
I say think about it. Germany…France…England…Holland…Kosovo…
The easiest way around Affirmative Action Laws, in the future and IF practiced EQUALLY, is the “inability to effectively communicate” period. (Teach your children Spanish, no not the language spoken in Spain, rather the slang spoken in Central and South America. Central and South Americans cannot understand those from the Iberian.) Not many “Planned Parenthoods” down Sud are there?
Repeal Public Law 94-311, June 1977.
Simply; anyone whose family originated from a “Spainish” speaking country is AUTOMATICALLY a minority..yet even if a white, native born citizen of the United States, from Romania marrys a “Spanish” male…Voila! Instant “Hispanic Female.” (it doesn’t work if a male marrys a Spanish female.) If we keep going, we’ll end up talking about languages et al etc.
…just think about it is all I am saying.

I live in Commerce and voter turnout wasn’t as good as I hoped, at 9:20AM I was only voter 141.

Don’t you find it strange that Michigan voters blame Bush for the state’s economy? Bush gets no credit for the national economy which over-all is pretty good. Yet Grand-mole skirts blame for Michigan’s highest-in-the-nation unemployment, lackluster job creation, flat economy, and depreciating real estate values.
One can’t leave this state right now because few homes are being sold. It’s like being trapped in misery.
