Elizabeth Warren prevails over the bankster's golden boy in Massachusetts. This is good.

I can see a line of what looks like several hundred people still waiting to vote in Brickell. How does that work. Polling closed at 7. It's likely that the election will be called for Obama when these people are still waiting to vote. Doesn't seem like a sensible system. Not that the Brickell types will lean Republican.

Hey now!

I guess if a man can decide he is woman a WASP can decide she's an Amerindian. Mustn't discriminate. We shall overcome.

So this is the end of the Republican Party. It will never be able to win POTUS b/c of demographics. The United States just took one large lurch to official one-party status.

If the media "controls our minds," then how are demographics even relevant?

Back to blood. It is and only ever has been whites who were deracinated through media propaganda. Universalist conservatism and liberalism are entirely white things. Unless the media is going to push black and Hispanic versions of all in the family. Which it won't, because blacks and mestizos do not and will never threaten the reign of usury. Whites are divided and vibrants united. One party state.

Or do you want to argue that advertising doesn't work?

What's so great about Elizabeth Warren? Her economic theories are an embarrassment, and have been handily debunked. She was busy telling people "you didn't build that" well before Obama made it fashionable.

1) If whites weren't politically divided, we really would have a one party state. You're taking a feature of America which has preserved the two-party system and confusingly attributing to it the destruction of the two-party system.

2) A one party state does not see phenomenon like its lower legislative house controlled by one party while its presidency and/or upper house is controlled by another. Are you predicting democrat super-majority wins for the House and Senate on top of the Presidency?

I want to argue that it doesn't work the way you think it does.

Being debunked on the Mises site just means something doesn't follow their economic view points, not that it is actually wrong.

Not if the GOP distances itself from the wack jobs like the Dems did after the '84 and '88 debacles.

Seriously, if the party stops sounding so anti-immigrant and spouting "voodo science" like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock did, it might do better. I wouldn't hold my breath on those changes anytime soon though.

Nice to see Nate Silver was pretty accurate in his forecast.
