Just who exactly are you attempting to speak to Dr. Sowell? The people you are trying to reach are not listening and the people who used to listen to you are disillusioned by the grim prospects of a short future with no America. My point is that all of those words have been said repeatedly. America no longer wants the Constitutional rule of law, it desires socialism because like a child, America has not experienced it yet.

Some media pundits see in the growing proportion of non-white groups in the population a growing opposition to the Republican Party that will sooner or later make it virtually impossible for Republicans to win presidential elections or even to control either house of Congress. But is demography destiny?

Conventional wisdom in the Republican establishment is that what the GOP needs to do, in order to win black votes or Hispanic votes, is to craft policies specifically targeting these groups. In other words, Republicans need to become more like Democrats.
