Aw, Ann. There isn't going to be any change in immigration policy. There isn't going to be any "chance". The Republican party is over as a national party that stands a chance in presidential contests. The Republican majority in the House is an artifact of gerrymandering mandated by Democrats...the declared purpose of that gerrymandering is that it serves to create solid minority districts. But the side effect is that it allows Republicans to win more seats by smaller margins, while those Democrat districts go 100% for the Democrat. That's wasted voting power, and the Democrats will eventually wise up. They have enough votes now that with halfway intelligent redistricting, they can carry some 55% of House seats.

It's more like the GOP will be content to return to the days when they only held about 150 seats in the House and 35 seats in the Senate, and those Republicans were content to have job security and be part of the ruling class. What today's GOP doesn't get is that even in those days, the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, theGOP was able to elect a Republican as President about half the time.

When the GOP won Congress in 1994 it shook the Democrats and the media right down to their core. Ever since that election the Democrats and media have worked relentlessly to destroy whatever chance there might be for long term Republican rule.

Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they've persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas.

Democrats haven't changed anyone's mind. They changed the people.

More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points -- the widest margin since 1984.

But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate. Not only that, but the non-white electorate is far more Democratic than...
