Regardless, there is only one viable long-term solution for the Republican Party, indeed, for the survival of constitutional America throughout the current territorial limits of the United States, and that is a repeat of Operation Wetback on a vastly larger scale. Such an action would require the banning of all dual-citizenships, mass deportations on an unprecedented scale, and likely inspire violence of the sort that has not been seen in America since the riots of the 1960s. And, needless to say, it is clear there is now no chance that it is ever going to happen.
Which is a real pity, because it would actually have been the lesser of the two probable evils. What is going to happen instead is some sort of civil war following the next major stage in the ongoing economic meltdown. How big it will be and how it will turn out, I don't pretend to know. But it is as easily predictable as the wars in the former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, and the former British empire in India, because war is how diverse groups of people usually negotiate imperial divorce. The USA has not truly been a single nation since imperial rule was forcibly imposed upon the southern states in 1865, but the difference is that it is no longer possible to plausibly pretend that it is still one any longer.
It's not a question of hate, race, or religion. It is the simple historical observation that the Kuomintang will not voluntarily live under the same governance as the Chinese communists. Pakistanis will not voluntarily live under the same governance as the Indians. Americans will not voluntarily live under the same governance as Mexicans, Chinese, Indians, or Arabs. They just will not do it, and to pretend otherwise isn't so much foolish as insane.
It doesn't matter what you do. It doesn't matter what you think. Winter is coming. The only question is whether it will take you by surprise or not. And there really isn't much excuse for being surprised when the temperature has been dropping and the leaves have been falling for quite some time now.

Speak for yourself, Vox. We're not all racist xenophobes.
Winter is coming.

That you want a war is obvious. I know this is a disappointment to you, but most people here have become just fine with people of other races being around them. It's only idiots like you who feel the need for a race war and another secession.
But hey, you can always keep dreaming, no matter how unlikely it is that your bigoted dream will come true.

Assuming Pox meant the reference, he does know GRRM is a huge liberal, right?

"forcibly imposed upon the southern states in 1865"
Their rebellion wasn't legal, the beatdown by the rest of the union was completely legit. I'm not even American and I know that much history.

"The USA has not truly been a single nation since imperial rule was forcibly imposed upon the southern states in 1865"
This is what 150 years of butthurt look like. You lost. If you don't like the US, get out.

Did you really just say "Winter is coming"? Did you intend to quote Game of Thrones? Because that's all anyone will think, since that's the FIRST THING people online who DON'T watch Game of Thrones associate with Game of Thrones!
I can take Game of Thrones seriously since that's its purpose, but I don't think I can take this shithead seriously.

Oh, look. An optimist.

Why have I never heard of it? Darn crappy U.S. education!

America has been taking in people from all over the world for centuries now. If this were going to tear us apart, it would have happened by now.

Hey again, Vox Day. Have I mentioned recently that I hate you and the veritable smorgasboard of human depravity and ignorance you personify?
Just wanted to make sure you know where we stand.

No duh, Chicken Vox, it's late November (as of this writing)! LOL!
