http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/21/politics/gop-census-latino/index.html?hpt=hp_t3 We spend a-lot of time worrying about the GOP taking over in this country but I think there's a-lot of evidence that their power is only going to decline going forward. Rising generations are : More educated Less religious More tolerant More racially diverse etc. Perhaps the power of the Republican party peaked with the rise and aging of the baby boomers. But the baby boomers are starting to die and in the coming years they are only going to die faster. Perhaps there is a "liberal future" for America, but that future might involve climbing over the corpses of the old dead bigots whose only real virtue is a high probability of getting out to vote.
