    Thing is, I don't think that it's impossible for the GOP to appeal to non-white voters and it's not as if they haven't tried to do so.

    But they are having a hard time appealing to non-white voters and hardcore racists at the same time.

      had a chance to appeal to minorities.  At that time there were still some moderates in the party that, had they taken the time to note population and economic trends, would have seen and possibly prevented the GOP from digging a deep grave for themselves.

      However with the afterbirth of the TParty, and the daily vitriol of Cruz, Ryan, Palin, Bachmann, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh et al, any chance of the GOP surviving as a real force in politics is next to zero. They have nowhere to go but down.

      No being has inherent power, only the illusion of power granted by others who similarly have none.
