You talked about the state being limited to national defense, as if national defense is a limited economic activity rather than an economic activity that permeates deep into every single privet sector industry from IT, to medical, to, engineering, city planning, arinotics, transportation, food security, etc... You brought up fascism. The central planing of fascism is vustified on the basis of national security. One single mandate of your minimal state is enough to justify a totalitarian, Sparta.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
