WarDaddy, all great points but I think despite the demographic shift we could still win elections handily if we had a mainstream media that reported the truth and reported it objectively. The mainstream media - both news and entertainment, incites hatred, derision and ridicule against conservatives and Republicans and a huge chunk of the voting population forms their opinion based on what they see and hear in the media. If we are to remake this country we will have to start at the source. I mean we need a conservative alternative to the mainstream media. Not a cable news channel, but a conservative news/entertainment mainstream media. Without that every election will boil down to spending billions of dollars for a tiny percentage of voters and that's a losing battle. When the demographics have shifted enough, a few undecideds and independents in the middle wont matter. Fundamentally restructuring the country will require going to the source of the problem.

What has been happening to America since World War II ended, must be understood as an attack on the very multi-generational nature of any civilization, nation, tribe, race or family. It is an attack on reality; and those who deny reality & pursue cloud-borne egalitarian wish lists, have at one point or another, managed to undermine virtually every institution. It was not genius on their part, more an inevitable incident to denying the basis for all institutions--the multi-generational quests of all sapient peoples.
Let me suggest one reform that could be sold, if enough intelligent Conservatives were to begin to demand it: The limitation of suffrage for a period of years, to anyone who accepts an unearned payment from the Government. There is an obvious conflict of interest, which people of intelligence have been aware of since at least the writings of De Tocqueville.
Please consider my extended argument Universal Suffrage--Threat To Liberty.
