    The Republican Party is 90% white. They are not even trying to get any minority vote.
    Blacks
    Gays
    Hispanics
    Muslims
    Atheists

    They know this is the last presidential election where they could actually win on their policies of division, voter suppression and dishonesty. With changing demographics, there simply aren't enough of them to win future elections without enormous change.

    And that is such a good thing.

    Minorities aren't kow-towing to the super wealthy.

    Minorities aren't against education.

    Minorities love children and babies.

    Minorities have already learned how to work together. Some blacks may not like the gays. Muslims may not like the atheists. And so on.

    Yet, these groups have been working together to create a better country for everyone. The only group blocking progress are Republicans.

    And look at Republicans policies:

    Anti education
    no money to modernize America's infrastructure
    tax cuts and subsidies to billionaires and monster corporations
    removing important regulations for business and the environment
    taking the rest of the country's wealth and throwing it at the military
    war
    threatening other countries

    The worst Republican policy being their anti education policy. Every country on earth is making it easier for it's population to get an education except white Republicans.

    What Republicans are doing this time may not be enough. There are two months to the election. What if the Republican base finds out Romney has been lying about Obama's policies on Medicare and Welfare? Two months is a long time to keep a lie going. Worse, many whites don't like racism and will recoil when it becomes obvious to them what Romney is doing.

    After this election, the Republican Party can only continue if they welcome minorities. That means their terrible and destructive policies will have to end.

    You could be right. Political Correctness and Identity Politics have been very effective strategies for the Democrats, dividing people into little groups. The GOP may have to go in that direction to survive, we'll see.

    Bizarre. Democrats aren't "dividing" people into little groups. The Democrats are "attracting" little groups to become the Democratic Party.

    Republicans are 90% white. Hardly divided into "little groups". No one "identifies" more with the Republicans than "whites". To Republicans, everyone else is "them" and "foreign".

    Hey, I'm trying to agree with you.

    The Republicans may need to follow the Democrat model of identifying people like African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, Rich-Americans, Poor-Americans, Old-Americans, Young-Americans, Male-Americans, Female-Americans, Gay-Americans, LGBT-Americans, CEO-Americans, non-CEO-Americans and the rest. Hyphenate everyone so that they can be identified and catered to.

    This notion the GOP has of treating everyone the same is passe and un-American. Everyone should be treated differently, by their personal identity. Perhaps everyone can be issued a color based on their identity, and then wear clothes in that color to identify themselves. People who want to claim more than one identity - such as Female-African-American-LGBT - get to wear cool, multi-color tye dye clothing. Or maybe some kind of paisley. Just trying to "think out of the box" here.

    I agree with you, treating everyone the same is a losing long-term proposition.

    And of course we know the best method to improve education is to keep throwing money at it. That has worked SO WELL so far.

    Sorry but you can't hold Democrats to the same standard as you hold Republicans, that's just not fair.
