    To make your schedule meaningful , you should have added another column for % of population.

    Non-Hispanic Whites = 63% of the population
    Blacks = 13% of the population.
    Hispanic = 16% of the population.
    Asians = 4% of the population.
    Other = 4% of the population.

    Non-Hispanic Whites = 61% of par.
    Blacks = 300% of par
    Hispanic = 100% of par.
    Asians = 60% of the population.
    Other = 82% of the population.

    Blacks are overrepresented on welfare at a rate of 4.9x compared to whites.

    The democrat party is known to engage in wealth redistribution (obamacare, anyone?), and its left wing wants even more of this-so thats not a distortion, its objective fact.

    And yes, you are the arbiter of nothing, or at least not conservationism.

    If the conservatives on this board are typical, the Republican Party's problem is pretty clear. If they want to survive they have got to attract more people from the centre and centre-left and they have to find a way to make their conservatives STFU. Conservatives, every time they open their mouths, hand whole blocs of voters to the Democratic Party.
    Ive heard that before, but the thing is compromising ones principles for votes is not my bag. Democrat light isnt the way to go. And they said the same thing about Reagan.

    I believe supply side economics should be supplying us with better governance at lower cost.

    I believe governance should not depend on economics to lower the cost of government.
