Where does this figure of 40% come from? Census reports show 14% of U. S. population to be blacks, 10% to be Hispanic (many of whom are White) and 2% Asian, American Indians and other minor non-white ethnic groups/ That amounts to 25%, not 40%. Where are the other 15%? The birthrate of Blacks and slowing Hispanic immigration make it unlikely that non-Whites will ever approach 40%. Enough of this Chicken LIttle nonsense.

Re: rgivan,
-- birthrate of Blacks and slowing Hispanic immigration make it unlikely that non-Whites will ever approach 40%. --

Not only that, Pat assumes that immigrants vote as if a monolithic block. Many immigrants are actually pretty conservative. Maybe their kids (who have to suffer through K-12 indoctrination) become liberal, but it is NOT the case that the Dems can count always on immigrants. The problem is that many in the Republican establishement and media treat immigrants as invaders and moochers, and call for (what else?) MORE government intervention to stop employers from employing whoever they want, renters to rent to whoever they want and people to come here to work for a living and contribute.

Name a single nonwhite immigrant bloc that in any way can be called conservative. I can't. We need an America that is white and proud.

I don't think on collectivist terms, you COLLECTIVIST.

You mean communist? Only communists think on those collectivist terms, Carl. I am NOT a collectivist, I am an individualist.
As the white flag rises above Republican redoubts, offering a surrender on taxes, the mind goes back to what seemed a worse time for conservatives: December 1964.

Barry Goldwater had suffered a defeat not seen since Alf Landon. Republicans held less than one-third of the House and Senate and only 17 governorships. The Warren Court was remaking America.

In the arts, academic and entertainment communities, and national press corps, conservatives were rarely seen or heard. It was Liberalism's Hour, with America awash in misty memories of Camelot and great expectations of the Great Society to come in 1965.

That year, however,...
