Sounds great - if only it were true... can you name one place, through all of history, where the current 'diversity' stock now dominating new births and immigration today have ever been able to produce a limited-government, even quasi-working state of their own that provides a decent life for its people? Where? Name one. Where have non whites even voted en-masse for limited governement? At most, we'll convince 30% - but eventually the numbers will overwhelm us and we'll sink to the same kind of 3rd world tyranny from which they came. People make culture - not the other way around (with limited exceptions of course - sadly those exceptions aren't enough).

Your point is well taken. We do need to get back to our founding principles and the hard won lessons of history, but we must not engage in divisive racial, ethnic, and other destructive political behavior that only serves narrow self-serving interests.

Good point. We need to create BOTH material wealth and the wealth that comes from the application of sound moral principles that builds up our national identity, character, and strength.

which seems to be inextricably tied to IQ levels, which are markedly different by ethnicity. High IQ nations are first world. Low IQ nations are 3rd world. Sure, the system can make a difference, but even Russia under Bolshevism was better than AFrica is today under so-called 'democracies.' The idea ethnicity has nothing to do with culture is patently absurd.

Texas, for the most part, is doing exactly that.

If governments would get out of the way, both by reducing onerous regulation AND decreasing mandated benefits to non-producers, then the process of integration would advance even further.

It is not skin color or ethnicity that advances culture, but the ability to create and maintain wealth.

Among the more controversial chapters in "Suicide of a Superpower," my book published last fall, was the one titled, "The End of White America."

It dealt with the demographic decline of the white majority and what it portends for education, the U.S. economy, politics and national unity.

That book and chapter proved the proximate cause of my departure from MSNBC, where the network president declared that subjects such as these are inappropriate for "the national dialogue."

Apparently, the mainstream media are reassessing that.

For, in rare unanimity, The New York Times, The Washington Post and USA...
