UPDATED: RIP GOP & Party of Liberty

Smug, self-satisfied left-libertarians like to dream that their constituency is differently derived, but the demographic facts are straightforward. As the GOP goes, so goes the libertarian movement. We know this, but reminders are necessary: The upshot of continued, unfettered, mass immigration—as it is currently practiced and preached by American central planners—is the triumph of tribalism, pillage politics, and left-liberalism.

Over to Patrick J. Buchanan, in “Suicide of a Superpower”:

“White Americans, who provide nine out of ten Republican votes every presidential year, have fallen to less than two-thirds of the U.S. population and three-fourths of the electorate. Meanwhile, the number of people of color is growing, both as a share of the population and as a share of the electorate. An in presidential elections, people of color vote Democratic—in landslides. Asians vote 60 percent Democratic, Hispanic 60-70 percent, and African American 90-95 percent.” (Page 338.)

POIGNANTLY PUT, “Either the Republican Party puts an end to mass immigration, or mass immigration will put an end to the Republican Party.” (Page 423.)


Ditto the future of a philosophy (libertarianism) which offers far fewer distributive spoils than does the Republican Party, yet demands from voters more by way of reason, for they must understand that less loot is better for them and their posterity.

The future dispensation of America, once the host population has been swamped and consigned to minority status, will be that of a third-world dominated, dominant-party state.

UPDATE: Texas is most certainly not “stubbornly Republican,” it is barely Republican; it is hanging on to a Republican slim majority by the proverbial hairs of its chinny chin chin:

“For the first time in the state’s history, Texas is now a majority-minority state, and the new round of redistricting will likely create at least one, and probably two majority-minority districts in Texas.” (via Race 4 2012)

Texas won’t be Republican for long.

Michel Cloutier: Canada has a different immigration complexion. It also has a different immigration process. Canada has something of a merit system, although, like the US, the overwhelming numbers of incomers result from the family unification aberration. However, in Canada legal immigration is driven by a point system. You get points for education, language (only English or French: OMG, how chauvinistic) and age. Your profession should also be in-line with the country’s needs. The US is a work-visa system, with one, not-always worthy sponsor acting as a ticket for a tribe.

As Michel points out, Canada has large Chinese and Indian immigration populations, which are somewhat less welfare dependent, more educated and socially conservative, and have less of a representation among the ranks of law-breakers. Are they less inclined to vote liberal?

    This argument is based on the premise that immigrants to the US do not assimilate into the native culture. However, despite the best efforts of the liberal left, the US state with the highest percentage of Hispanics, Texas, is stubbornly Republican. How is this possible?

    Hope I won’t bore everybody with a ‘Worthwhile Canadian Initiative’, but here goes :

    The Canadian Liberal party, the Dem’s equivalent, has held on to power for many years by pandering to Canada’s various ethnic groups.

    However, they were crushed in the last Federal elections by the Conservative, the more-or-less Canadian GOP. To the more hard-working, law abiding groups (Indians, Chinese, etc) they sold a law-and-order platform implicitly targeting, well, the Usual Suspects.

    This may point to a solution for the GOP.

    The Republicrat Party, which claims to be the party of Constitutional, limited government, has two fatal contradictions. At the national level, including its commentariat, the party has been taken over by warmongering neo-cons…and nothing grows government like war and the attendant, Constitution-busting National Security State. Locally, the Chamber of Commerce crowd, with its endless mania for cheapening the labor supply, insists on filling up the country with sweatable blacks and browns, and all else – including winning elections – be damned. This is a party whose time has passed. A Ron Paul 3rd Party candidacy will certainly finish it off, and good riddance. Incidentally, I’ve settled on an excellent VP choice for RP: Rand Paul.

    Having long ago disassociated themselves from the idea of nationhood and aligned themselves with the propositional nation, the political parties now invite every manner of the depraved into the country, not to make right little Americans of them (passé, elitist, Americentric… impossible) but to demonstrate, yet again, that a proposition is more expedient than a proposal.

    That’s a gallant way of saying they’d rather bang an ideal than be faithful to a principle.

    >Are they less inclined to vote liberal?
    To answer your question, most Indians are not less inclined to vote lefty-liberal. They’ve grown up seeing virtue in concepts such as: “humanism”, government protects people (regulates), and the mindset of ‘what’s so wrong with spreading the wealth? how much money do you really need anyway?’ So obviously, to this group, which I’d say is the plurality of Non-resident Indians in the States, they see Obama as an old-style, charismatic political hero, reminiscent of figures from India’s past.

    I point all this out to identify the other problem with immigration. Those who do come here legally, work hard, and find success often don’t understand capitalism and its virtue. They don’t understand why the U.S. constitution is a brilliant document assigning liberties. The are collectivists by nature and have no appreciation of individualism. I’ve had conversations with some of the brightest Indians, who are quite well off, and they are completely clueless about these things. It’s frightening. They will vote for Obama again with an absolutely lazy conviction.

    The irony: India itself may actually be more conservative (even libertarian) than those who’ve emigrated to the U.S. West Bengal, a state that has been proudly communist for generations, finally rid itself of communists in a recent parliament election. Right wing radio is on the rise (for whatever that’s worth). And, anecdotally, I know Ayn Rand has had some popularity in certain parts of India.

    Does anyone, other than me, have the feeling of futility and the draining of mental-energy that this might be the last presidential election in which you will cast a vote?

    My primary concern is to build as much wealth as possible, learn as much as possible in my main area of interest, and research where – in the English speaking world – it would be best to relocate to in the coming year because I have low expectations of what the election results will be.

    Is it time to meet with John Galt?

    I hope for the best, but I am preparing for the worst.

    RE: Rebel’s post above:

    I couldn’t agree more. As for a Ron Paul VP choice: If he were to win on the Republican ticket: Rand Paul. If he were to run 3rd party: Jesse Ventura, just because I would like to see Jesse put the squeeze on “Nobody Messes with Joe” Biden and probably a weasel like Santorum.

  8. My RON-PAUL i

    I actually view the Republican party as the biggest block to libertarianism – I expect there to be ONE statist party but the fact that we have 2 statist parties makes it nearly impossible to reverse what Jefferson calls the tendency of government to grow and liberty to shrink (see Stossel’s essay):


    I find it difficult to decouple the problems arising from immigration of lower classes and the welfare state. Meanwhile, like Stossel, I do not see any popularity to get rid of either mass immigration OR the welfare state. Liberty is an ABSTRACT concept while getting someone to mow the lawn or being able to shove granny on state support is very real to many people.

    The Asian immigrants may eventually vote Republican as the Black-Hispanic (Democratic) Alliances will likely conflict with their economic interest. Where I am skeptical is that I don’t see the entrepreneurial Asian immigrants caring about TSA gropes, habeas corpus violations, or the like. The libertarian concepts in the Bill of Rights, as Ilana points out, are Anglo-Saxon.

    As for third parties, the US representative system guarantees a two-party system and third parties generated top down (Teddy Roosevelt, George Wallace, Ross Perot) never endure.

    If I heard it right on The Ron Paul Veterans Rally , Iowa State Senator & Bachmann campaign state chair Kent Sorenson has just endorsed Dr. Ron Paul for President

    Confirmed ?

    Michele Bachmann chair defects to Ron Paul

    In a shock announcement Wednesday night, Iowa state senator and onetime Michele Bachmann campaign leader Kent Sorenson declared that he is now supporting Ron Paul for president.

    Sorenson made the announcement at a Paul rally with veterans here in Des Moines, telling the crowd: “I believe we’re at a turning point in this campaign.”

    Calling the decision to abandon Bachmann a painful one, Sorenson said he felt obligated to join Paul as the “Republican establishment” tries to undermine his campaign.

    “I thought it was my duty to come to his aid, just like he came to my aid during my Senate race, which was a very nasty race,” Sorenson said, pledging to go all-out for Paul over the next few days.

    To cheers from the crowd, he continued: “We’re going to take Ron Paul all the way to the White House.”

    Negative. Ventura = Stockdale. Ron Paul/Rand Paul as 3rd Party ticket would create a strong bio-continuity – Ron is OLD – and Rand is quite a bit friendlier to Israel than his Dad. Paul + Paul could hit 30%…and raise holy hell with both the statist parties.

  12. Rebel Without a Clause

    @Myron: when existential political crisis converges with economic collapse, nothing is “guaranteed”. In the immortal words of Bush 43, “this sucker is going down.”

  13. Westie

    Thr Republican party has returned to it’s roots as the neo-Whig Party and just may destroy itself in the process. hopefully after the idiot primary voters will return to reforming the deformed political parties and return more power to the Congress where it belongs.
