12. Minorities in the Republican Party speaking up will fracture the party permanently.

Unfortunately there really aren't enough minorities in the party to do it, and most of those that are in the party aren't going to speak up anyway. The Republican Party is in a very tough spot. If they try to embrace minorities at all, or even projects the idea of racial inclusiveness, their support is done. They are well aware that much of their base is racist and have spent their entire existence purposefully nurturing that racism for political gain.

However, just like with 100% of all conservative ideas, from Reagan Mortgaging the country's financial future, to the constant refusal to pay for schools, this strategy also wasn't very forward thinking. It's about to blow up in their face.

Yes, we've said it, and hoped for it, before and it didn't come to pass. And maybe this time isn't quite the final nail in the coffin either. But whether it's right now, on 10 years from now, the republican party is done. While race is still a huge issue in this country, we are almost at the tipping point, if we haven't passed it already.
