    And what would be wrong about that? Is there something wrong about white people? After all, that certainly seems to be an extrapolation similar to what you are trying to pull with the above comment.
    Is there something about my race that makes me damaged goods, in your eyes?
    Oh there's nothing wrong with an ideology appealing only to one race while actively alienating every other. Free speech is a wonderful thing like that.

    Still, it's funny watching the process from the outside. With conservatives in denial about their own failings, we're reaching the tipping point for when the white male vote is big enough to win the presidency on its own.

    If I were running as a Republican and wanted the Asian vote, I would just point out how affirmative action has made it harder for Asians to get into top universities. This alone will do it.

    Too many wish to cross the Rubicon/Potomac.

    Again, I stress the only time the last American Civil War by wrongs alone should have occurred was during the Civil Rights Era.

    Since it was the "Golden Age of firearms ownership" it would have been a perpetual Civil War of the non regulated State's Guards along with the "majority" vs everyone else.

    Let's be real too, it's the Dept of Health and Human Services provides free food and services to the poor. They are approved by legislation which involves both Republicans and Democrats, but the people distributing it are usually connected with the Democrat Party and it would appear that they are being provided by Democrats. In order to keep getting the freebies, they must keep voting Democrat. People who are needy are easiest to manipulate.

    Asians that escaped Marxism, communism, socialism, dictatorships, and corruption will tend to vote Republican. The Vietnamese for example are heavily republican. The Chinese that fled the communist revolution tend to vote Republican and are staunchly pro-Taiwan.

    They escaped dictatorships and corruption, but they like being provided for by the government. Have you seen those lines for free cheese and powdered milk? Plus, most Asians don't go to the polls unless there's something on the ballot that is near and dear to them. They are too busy working 14hrs a day, 7 days a week.

    The differences between tyranny and liberty cannot be settled through peaceful political processes. Force, or at least the genuine threat of force, is the only defense against tyranny.

    Jeffersonian revolutions are the exact opposite of Maoist revolutions...
    God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century & a half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure.

    It should be noted that you are basing your knowledge of American politics on statistics. When the percentages don't agree with what you want to say...you change the goal post...

    Most American Marxists don't realize they are Marxists...
    In a public opinion poll conducted for the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, nearly half the respondents believed that the Constitution contains Karl Marx’s phrase “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

    [W]here the principle of difference is as substantial, and as strongly pronounced as between the republicans and the monocrats of our country, I hold it as honorable to take a firm and decided part, and as immoral to pursue a middle line, as between the parties of honest men and rogues, into which every country is divided.

    This ain't making you look so good here.

    Try reading the first 2 pages of this thread.
    Its all there, and thus its old news... for those that have been keeping up with this from the start.

    You may well be right, but that doesn't alter the long term problem the GOP has with non-white voters. That isn't made up. It is very real and seems to hold across groups from a variety of backgrounds. Still waiting to hear a single conservative poster here actually address why without denigrating the voters or blaming a third party. I'm starting to think none of you are capable of it, which explains a lot.
    The long-term problems?
    Maybe you had better spell those out. Stick to 3, and we can go back & forth over those in specific, factual and clear ways.

    IMHO, the only issues that match your points are those that are made up by the Left for propaganda purposes. MY issue here is that race should be immaterial, not used as a crutch or a way to divide people against each other.
