Newsflash: We will still be a sensational economy, as our demographics change. Skin color did not build this nation, nor will it maintain it. Never did, never will. The one thing Ryan said that was spot on is America is first and foremost, an idea. Immigrants come here to engage in what remains a meritocracy. In many urban areas, the percentage of new, small businesses they start exceeds the overall average before they came.
Your delusional and are relying on wishful thinking or liberal nonsense. I'm relying on history and verifiable evidence. The challenge is out find me a dynamic, growing country, political entity etc where the majority of the population is of African descent that is considered 1st world. Real talk.

When folks don't like the truth they ignore. Yet you notice no one has brought up facts to dispute my charges. That speaks volumes.

Detroit thriving city, , major industry setback, black come into power = decline
Pittsburgh thriving city, major industry setback, whites still in power= thriving

How's Memphis, Baltimore, St Louis, Kansas City doing these days.

Many conservatives cite liberalism as to why cities fail but Portland,OR is probably as liberal and socialist of a city out there. Yet it is routinely voted one of the most liveable cities. I wonder why? Hmmm.

True, and that is sad. Racists simply display their stupidity, and inability to compete. The latter explains why they need an unlevel playing field tilted towards their favor. The same holds true for pols who cannot cope with various demographics mixtures.

You also stated no POTUS had ever been elected with unemployment above 7.2 percent. Firsts happen all the time, and the intelligent recognize this. (I believe that 7.2 percent axiom was last broken.. 2 weeks ago)!!

We will always be a global powerhouse, and while China may pass us in pure $, in GDP per capita, we'll continue to eat their lunch, generation after generation.

E Pluribus Unum!!!!

Well when you have dummies not voting on the issues what do you expect? America is not entitled to greatness it needs to be sustained. Blacks and Browns bring up the rear academically if the country is to have more of them as a percentage of the population stands to reason a decline is in order. It's not rocket science.

Without the rural, largely uneducated Middle Americans, the GOP would cease to exist.
If we simply peruse a map of states with their rates of college graduates, the top US states are primarily blue. While I may not agree with their politics, I view facts, even those not in sync with my party of choice, as invaluable. The Southeast, GOP stronghold, lags most of America in the rates of college grads per thousand citizens (eespecially amongst young white males in rural SE towns). You were saying?

I also recognize what truly bothers you is the fork in the road the GOP is at: (1) Choose those core principles you espouse, which are very similar to the David Duke wing of the party, and in doing so, become even less relevent running for POTUS than in 2008 or 2012, or (2) Run the same non-hating, more inclusive conservative platforms most of the GOP commonly ran in the pre TP, civilized era, and be competitive again.

While your statement is true, our principles are still alive and well, and no nation ever provided this amount of economic freedom.both to thrive and fail.

Blacks are committed socialists no amount of rebranding will move the needle much towards the GOP.

Is Rush Limbaugh's Country Gone? - NYTimes.com
You are going to use racial division and bigotry to attempt to turn one group of people against another?

So this is your plan?

This is funny.

The ENTIRE Black population of the United States are socialist.

In the long run Conservatives are destined to lose. You are simply too driven by own ignorance hatred and bigotry to see people as anything other than a skin color and characterize everybody with that skin color instead of seeing people as individuals.
