This is a very useful comment. That issue, defining terms that allows a reasoned discussion to go forward is, in a way, the foundation of John Rawls concept of the veil of ignorance. How can we devise a way to begin the analysis of what a nation should do on equal footing?

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.
