I can think of three things that the Republican Party should learn from this election result.
1. About 80% of blacks will NEVER vote for a republican. They want priority treatment from the government and the democrats will always be able to out-pander republicans because they do not have to worry about their base, which also wants to pander to minorities.
2. About 80% of Latinos will NEVER vote for Republicans because they want free "stuff" from the government and the democrats will always offer them more free stuff because they do not have to worry about upsetting their base, which also wants free stuff.
3. Democrats will NEVER join with republicans in taking some heat for the good of the nation or the cause of freedom if they can find political advantage in opposing them. Democrats have no real goal but political power and no purpose to exercise it other than to perpetuate it.

Well in the words of Ronald Reagan..."there you go again". Lots of NEVERs in those statements. I think Ronald would have had a more positive and hopeful message.
