Census is a wake-up call for Maryland GOP

By Todd Eberly

Want to better understand Martin O'Malley's 14-point victory margin over Republican and former governor Bob Ehrlich in Maryland? Look no farther than the just released Census data for Maryland -- all of Maryland's population growth over the past decade has been among racial and ethnic minorities.

In 2000, non-Hispanic whites were 65 percent of the state's population. In 2010, that has fallen to below 55 percent. All told, that state has welcomed 477,000 new residents, a 9 percent increase in the past decade. But the population of non-Hispanic whites has declined by 3.9 percent while the Hispanic population more than doubled, the Asian population increased by 51 percent and the African American population by 14 percent.

These numbers should serve as wake-up call for the Maryland Republican Party.

WHEN OUR COUNTRY AND CONSTITUTION WERE STARTED,THE 2 BOOKS THAT WERE REQUIRED, BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE WAS CONSIDERED, WERE THE BIBLE AND THE HYMNAL. THE REQUIREMENT FOR SOMEONE TO HOLD OFFICE WAS THAT THEY NEEDED TO BE A CHRISTIAN. NO ONE CAN PROPERLY LEAD UNLESS LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. NOT THAT CHRISTIANS ARE PERFECT, BUT GENERALLY HAVE A BETTER DIRECTION WHEN LED BY THE LORD. THIS INCLUDES ALL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES (INCLUDING TEACHERS, CLERKS, ECT). ANYONE WHO WANTS FAIR TREATMENT, MUST TREAT OTHERS THE SAME. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE, MAY THINK THEY MAY HAVE SOME WEIRD THING (LIKE HOMOSEXUAL) THIS DOES NOT GIVE ANYONE SPECIAL RIGHTS OVER ANYONE ELSE. ANYONE WITH WITH THESE TRAITS(INCLUDING HOMO.) WILL NOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD UNLESS THEY REPENT…….
