mands. But once these groups are a ma- jority they can simply vote to take what-ever they want–legally.In this context it is worth pointing outthat not only are there racial differencesin intellectual potential, but there aredifferences in temperament as well. Itwas our ancestors who created democ-racy and representative government. Wefind evidence of this among Europeansin Roman times and even before. Butwhile self-government has worked wellfor European peoples, there is little rea-son to believe it can be extended to mul-tiethnic societies, where the temptationto exploit other groups is always strong.The Republican Party is in a vice. Thedemographic balance on which it de-pends is transient. Unless immigrationis halted the GOP’s days are numbered–at least as a party that pushes its tradi-tional platform. The GOP therefore hastwo ways to respond. One is to competewith Democrats for non-white votes andthe other is to rally white, middle-classsupport–something Ronald Reaganmanaged to do. To follow the latter path,Republicans must build a broader coali-tion by appealing to the widest possiblerange of white voters.Unfortunately, the Republicans aredominated by economic and businessinterests. In catering to these interests,they have ceded many low-wage whitesto the Democrats. Republicans supportfree trade, open borders and other eco-nomic nostrums out of commitment toprinciple rather than out of loyalty to thepeople to whom they owe their tenuouscongressional majority. But even worsefor the Republicans, the internationalistelites in media and entertainment, whohave close ties to business, are often aslikely to support the Democratic Partyas the GOP. Any benefits Republicansmay anticipate from big business willdisappear as immigration works itschanges on demographics and votingpatterns.In order to build a broader consen-sus, Republicans must appeal to the bluecollar workers hit hardest by immigra-tion and cheap imports. Using that base,they should then move to halt and evenreverse immigration. Republicans wouldthen guarantee themselves–and us–astable, long-term future.Even aside from immigration, theGOP would have broad support if it hadthe courage to attack racial preferences,multiculturalism, women in the military,homosexual “rights,” socialist educationpolicies, teachers’ unions, and any num-ber of inviting leftist targets. Unfortu-nately, the Republicans have chosen tobecome more like Democrats. Much of the feel-good rhetoric of George W.Bush, Christine Todd Whitman, JohnWarner and the Republican LeadershipCouncil is pitched to the Democrats’proletariat of non-whites, feminists, ho-mosexuals and other disaffected groups.Ethnic identity has long played animportant role in voting patterns–exceptfor whites. Results vary, but in recentdecades roughly 90 percent of blacksand 85 percent of Hispanics have votedfor Democrats. If Republicans are to lurethese voters, they must adopt Demo-cratic policies, which will alienatewhites and will not work anyway.The 1998 election showed the futil-ity of GOP attempts to sound like Demo-crats. Despite the efforts of “kinder, gen-tler” Republicans, blacks voted in over-whelming numbers for the party of do-mestic socialism. Even more or less solidRepublicans lost when they failed tobroaden their appeal to more whites. InAlabama, for example, black Democratslured the “boyz in the ‘hood” to the pollswith free raffle tickets for a car. Whitesfailed to vote as a bloc and as a result,Fob James, a Christian governor whorestored the Confederate Flag andvowed to defend the Ten Command-ments with the National Guard, was re-placed by a man who owes his election–and therefore his loyalty–to blacks.One of the biggest Republican insani-ties was supporting Puerto Rican state-hood. Puerto Rico is pure trouble for theGOP—it is both black and Hispanic. Itsfour million Spanish-speaking non-white inhabitants have no loyalty toAmerica as a traditional European na-tion. It has twice the U.S. drug addic-tion rate, over twice the murder rate, andfour times the U.S. unemployment rate.It’s average household income is onlyhalf that of Mississippi, our poorest state.The chances of any of its two senatorsand half-dozen congressmen being Re-publicans are essentially zero.With all the Republican posturing onbehalf of their Caribbean co-linguists,did California’s Mexicans rush to thepolls in support of Newt Gingrich’s“Hispanic-friendly” GOP? Hardly. Un-like us, Mexicans understand who theyare and what political solidarity means.One of their organizations is called LaRaza, which means, simply, “the race.”Pete Wilson may well be California’slast-ever Republican governor and un-less immigration is stopped, Gray Davismay be the last-ever white governor.The Republican strategy of stealingvotes from the Democrats will neverwork. Republicans will never out-prom-ise the Democrats without simply be-coming Democrats themselves. The1998 election showed how far we havecome toward the day when non-whitebloc-voting will dictate the future of America. Even with whites at 70 per-cent of the population, political correct-ness, affirmative action, hate crime laws,cultural dispossession, and anti-whiteviolence go largely unopposed.The only possibility for the survivalof the Republican Party is to reassemble
California may neverhave another Republicangovernor–Gray Davismay be its last white one.
