So Modern Monetary Theory says that governments can NEVER, EVER spend too much money eh? France, Greece, Portugal, Spain should hire you to enlighten them. Too bad you weren't around when pre WWII Germany had 3500% inflation. You probably would have told them to keep spending too. Well, I wasn't smart enough to study Modern Monetary Theory so I had to study physics where I learned that you can't get blood from a stone. By the way, what's the net present value of the $100+ Trillion in unfunded obligations we have to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid that come due before mid-century?

Won't work. If the economy improves Obama will get credit. If the economy tanks Republicans will take the blame.

The Republican Party was formed to end slavery. Republicans fought the Klan and wrote multiple civil rights bills in Congress. Every major segregation supporter was a Democrat. Yet, Republicans can't even get 20% of the black vote. Facts and policy, don't count. Controlling the media does. The Republicans don't define their own brand. The Democrats and the corrupt media define the Republican brand. That's what has to change more than policy prescriptions.

Yes. Reagan granted amnesty. McCain advocated for it. Did that get the Republican Party any loyalty? Did McCain win? Heather Mac Donald pointed out in her National Review article that US born Hispanics in California use public services at twice the rate of non-Hispanics and they vote that way. Immigration policy is not as important to them as public services. So if you don't promise more government goodies I'm not sure you will get the Hispanic vote. BTW, I don't know any major conservative who advocates for deportation. The most I hear is closing the border and changing incentives so individuals self-deport.
