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.
