What of the German voter bloc?

All we hear about in the elections discussion these days is the Hispanic vote. What about all of the other ethnic groups in this country? Do we not matter? Are our votes not important?

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the Germans in America, whether Pennsylvania German or German-American, are not quite as polarized as some other communities are. The Amish vote in Ohio did make a difference in the 2004 elections. There are many other ethnicities in the US that must not be ignored. It is time for the rest of us to demand the same attention that the Hispanics are constantly getting from politicians and the news media.

Otherwise, why should we continue to buy into what is left of the US as a nation?
