I agree with Mary Sanchez’s Sept. 11 Other Views column, Memo to GOP: Demography is destiny. However, I don’t think it has anything to do with race or ethnicity.
The real difference is that too many Americans pay no income tax and are receiving some sort of government assistance aside from Social Security and Medicare. The Democratic Party continues to unify those who are increasingly dependent on government assistance.
You don’t bite the hand that feeds you. I don’t identify with people who look like me, but rather people who share my values. People who believe in limited government, fiscal and personal responsibility come in all racial and ethnic groups.
