Last Presidential election Paul, Johnson, Perry, Cain and Huntsman favored States rights over Federal marijuana laws, Bachmann took no position, leaving only Romney, Santorum and Gingrich supporting Federal Marijuana prohibition. Polls also show Republicans growing more likely to support candidates that support gay marriage and abortion. Each year we have more and more Republican/Libertarian crossover candidates. Fiscal conservatism and social conservatism are often at odds, and many of the new young Republicans are making the choice of fiscal conservatism over social. I find the gay rights issue to be quite odd, Republicans` recognized their gay membership with the Log Cabin Club 21 years before the Democrats followed suit with the Stonewall Democrats.

African Americans who consider themselves Republican hit an all time low in 1968 with just 3%, 15% however voted for Nixon that year, probably because of his unwavering support of civil rights. Today the number is 16%, and if the Democrats continue with their current trajectory that percentage will continue to rise. Currently Conservatives outnumber Liberals in general in all States except Massachusetts and Rhode Island. You can post all of the anecdotes and Strawman arguments you want, it doesn't change the fact that Americans are becoming more conservative on fiscal issues and Republicans are becoming more Libertarian on social issues.

"Yet in 2012 Obama got 93% of the African-American vote."

Unlike the small percentage of liberals (21%), most people do not blindly vote party line. Just because 16% of African Americans consider themselves Republican does not mean they would vote for Romney. I am very conservative, and I did not vote for Romney. The fact still stands that the highest percentage of African Americans since 1960 consider themselves Republican.

The Left continues to try to paint Republicans as racist even though the percentage of African Americans that consider themselves Republican climb. As of 2012 16% of African Americans consider themselves Republican, the highest percentage since 1960.

It doesn't matter how many articles you post calling it a "superstorm", meteorologically speaking it was still less than a hurricane.

There is no such thing as a "superstorm", and if there was it would be worse than a hurricane not less. New York and New Jersey were not prepared for a tropical storm, that is the only reason it was even news.

Do you mean "post tropical cyclone Sandy"? No hurricane named Sandy has ever hit the United States.

They were pretty slick here in Vancouver early, but they seem fine now.
