And the demographic shifts that Democrats so patiently—and foolishly—counted on to change everything will now be stalled and undermined at every turn. A few years of Republican border and refugee policies, and we’ll be headed back to the ever-whiter America that preceded Lyndon Johnson’s 1965 immigration reforms.
So, this individual says flat out that the Democrats plan for winning is to admit enough people that their party outnumbers the “native” Americans with immigrants and refugees?
But let’s be clear: The problem isn’t that your guy won. It’s that he has made it obvious he intends to rule without any regard for the Constitution
But your plan to beat him forever is to import people that agree with you.
It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.
And this is why it’s OK in his mind to do that. He really believes that the election of Trump is one of the worst things that has happened in the world ever. And that we are now more in danger from everything from crime, to war, and global warming. That Trump will unite with Putin and start a war with everyone and start off by forcing Europe to defend itself.
I thought the left hated American being the world’s policeman.
We will need to run our states and our cities so well, in such an effective and enlightened manner, that we can make you understand all over again what every page of our history should already tell you. Through our own example, we must win you over, American by American, town by town, state by state, until we are once more in a position to mitigate all of the foolish, cruel, and wasteful things you are about to inflict on the rest of us, and to move forward once again, as American states united.
Yes, run it like Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, Baltimore, all those shining cities rising out of the shit they are surrounded by.
I shouldn’t read The New Republic. It’s bad for my blood pressure. I’m also pretty sure in his statistics he includes the existance of a military base as “federal aid”, most of the time that’s the case on this sort of thing.
