    I'm sure you want that so badly to be true, but not according to the Census Bureau. Between 2010 and 2014 The percentage of the population White alone went from 72.4% to 77.4% for a full 5% increase. Blacks went from 12.6% to 13.2%, an increase of 0.6%. Latino's went from 16.3% to 17.4% for an increase4 of 1.1%. Asians went from 4.8% to 5.4% for a total of 0.6%. Let Jethro cipher for ya. 0.6% + 1.1% +0.6% = after the gazinta's it comes out to 2.3% which is less than half the growth for whites only at 5%.

    The trends WILL change. The Right has become exceedingly and consistently EXTREME... and people are beginning to notice.

    I didn't and wouldn't say that things would change 'quickly'... I'm only certain that the GOP had better find something far better to sell 'human beings', than what they are selling 'now'. Their influence WILL eventually diminish, because they are FORCING acceptance, via manipulation of various things. They are using deception, outright lies, racism and certainly money. But the schemes WILL eventually falter, because they are imperfect.

    If Republicans were other-than-human, I might imagine them winning and being in power perpetually... but their 'human' flaws and basically wretched (extreme/alt-right) agenda is evident RIGHT NOW. And Americans sooner or later, will respond to that.

    Change will come, like it or not.

    Not the change you're selling. The Democratic Party has been dragging America to become the next Iraq. No matter how imperfect the Republican Party may be, it's not pushing an outright revolt. I will never vote for or associate with a party that believes in tribal warfare for its own agenda(Democrats).

    Well, you just keep on dreaming that the Marxist Democrats have a message that the American people are buying!

    And when those younger people of color become adults they are going to find out painfully that the white minority can not be taxed any more to support the majority.

    In California you are not allowed to manage your own life. Every aspect of your life is regulated by the state from what kind of crapper you can take a crap in, how long a shower you take to even what kind of gun you can use to protect your family and home.

    I'm never lived in California, but done enough read-up to know the quantity of regulations as well as their reach into absurdity exceeds all others.

    And yet most of your entrepreneurs live there and is the center of technology.

    While that is true, I think it relates to the fact that you go where a particular skill is concentrated. Lot of smart people in California, in terms of technology. In terms of law- requiring dairy farmers to capture cow farts? Not exactly brilliant, but the law passed.... and that has to make wonder if California doesn't have an epidemic of delusion about everyday things.

    While climate and tech talent may keep the tech companies there, the laws don't keep their money there. Apple used corporate structure strategy to minimize both Federal and Calif state taxes- big-time. Apple is hardly alone in this. Google, for example, has a post office box (box number 666) in Bermuda and claims $8 billion of its revenue is made there. Most Silicon Valley tech companies engage in this.

    It's all strategy.

    If you like freedom,,,you wouldn't like California.

    Even someone higher up has had enough with California and turned some of the most liberal areas of California into burning Hell holes this week.

    LOL. Funny, but the comment touches on both the problem and the solution. Well before the Luddites became popular, people have feared technological progress. Robots don't pay taxes, but they also don't buy anything either. They produce, but without people to buy their products, they're an expensive assets producing products with no buyers.

    If I were young today there is one profession I wouldn't want to pick as a career, driving a big rig.

    Google has targeted truck drivers to put out of work and on to the welfare rolls.

    Google plans to eliminate one profession in twenty or so years. But Google didn't think things through on how many other occupations that rely on the truck driver. Waitresses, cooks, motel owners and room service, etc. etc. etc.
