"If there comes a point in this country where white citizens are a minority"

Not possible. If a white person was alone in a room with 1,000 people of a different race, the white person would never be labeled the minority.

Learned this in an ethnic studies class.

Ross Perot called Bill Clinton's economic plan "Voodoo Economics".

Actually, that's what George H.W. Bush said about supply-side economics (a.k.a. Reaganomics) in a 1980 Republican presidential debate. However, after the Reagan tax rate cuts resulted in a huge economic boom and an unprecedented increase in tax revenues, Bush admitted that he was wrong.

@patchgrabber: I think it all comes back to the two-party system. To me, it is inevitable that, in a two-party system, each party will target and attempt to "demonize" the other party. Unfortunately, from my experience, most people aren't very bright. Thus, they align with one party and accept that hatred for other beliefs is proper.

@SmagBoy1: There are a couple of serious issues with this notion though. First and foremost, such groups necessarily and inevitably breed division. It is in our nature to condemn groups that alienate us.

The next big issue is that there is a tendency for the majority to lose interest. Do you suppose it is more difficult for a white male or a black woman to gain a scholarship even if they have the same GPA? Is that "fair"?

Also, where does it stop? What is the Inuit are 0.2% of the population? By your logic, they SHOULD create a separate group...

Congress is already representing the majority interests. That's why there is a need for minority groups to have their own caucuses. It's pretty simple.

HumanAction, I'm all for a Congressional Caucus for the Socioeconomic Advancement of All Americans. Problem is, some groups really, really need it. Others not nearly as much. It's not a crime, and it's not race baiting to admit that. And traditionally, and still, the disadvantaged in our country are almost entirely (although not completely) divided among racial lines.

But, too, there are also interest and concerns of other minority cultures that may not be socioeconomic. It's not racist to recognize that. It's amazing to me that people can't see how extremely well whites (and especially white males) have had it. That doesn't mean it's their fault, but, dang, what's so wrong with groups forming trying to look out for their own interests?

'A White Caucus would never be allowed or accepted funny how that works.'

If there comes a point in this country where white citizens are a minority (highly possible) and are discriminated against by a majority (less likely, but within the realm of possibility), then it would be acceptable.

Otherwise, there is already a congressional white caucus. It's called congress.

we value OUR own freedom of speech. Anyone's else freedom of speech be damned.

I'm noticing that more and more. I think it's part of getting so whipped-up all the time. I've only found a couple of instances where people in my country have burned an effigy of our PM. Amazing how different our attitudes are considering how much of your culture we absorb.

@SmagBoy1: Even better yet, I would prefer to see a Congressional Caucus for the Socioeconomic Advancement of All Americans.

In this way, all Americans benefit from the Caucus yet those with the worst socioeconomic status are most positively affected.

@SmagBoy1: First off, I think you missed my point a bit. I am NOT advocating a Congressional White Caucus. Instead, I am saying that no such caucuses should exist (black, asian, hispanic, or white).

That being said, I agree with your premise that some people have socioeconomic disadvantages due to their race. However, I disagree with the means to positively affect the issue.

If we create a Congressional Black Caucus with the intention of looking after special interests for blacks, then we purposefully alienate others due to the color of their skin - something they are born with and cannot change.

I would rather see a Congressional Caucus for the Socioeconomically Downtrodden. This meets your criteria and does not alienate others for their race.

Lastly, I reject the notion that a White Caucus is racist. If one race can form a Caucus, then all must have the same right. Fair is fair.

HumanAction, please forgive me for saying, but the idea that "White Power Caucus" is racist fails to understand the whole reason for a special interest caucus in the first place. A congressional black caucus serves a very specific purpose. Blacks all over the country are, taken as a socioeconomic class, significantly disadvantaged. Whether or not you want to blame that on racism, policy, history, "laziness", whatever, the problem is real. Those congressmen elected by majority black electorate might be singularly more qualified to explore ways to help. There is NO NEED for a White Caucus in the same way. To think that there is really is to racist...or at least ignorant. This is a very quick and cursory explanation, so, sharp shoot it all you want. You know its truth exists, though.

@patchgrabber

I thought more Americans would prize their freedom of speech.

That's the funny things about most of us "down here" - we value OUR own freedom of speech. Anyone's else freedom of speech be damned.

@chalket

Now all you gotta do is create the "White Power Caucus" and you'll have somewhere to feel at home.

I rarely play the "race card" but the double standard you are promoting is absolutely absurd. Your own words indicate that it is completely fine for hispanics, asians, and blacks to have a Congressional Caucus representing their races. However, you say that any attempt to form a Caucasian version is akin to a "White Power Caucus." This is a double standard and you are a complete fool for making the above statement.

This country has no need for hyphenated Americans. Either you are an American or you are not; that is all.

Yo, McGovern! Your ignorance is showing (yet again)!
Congressional Hispanic Caucus
Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus

That image of Obama as a witch doctor is most definitely racist, and has been widely considered so since it first popped up in '08. That being said, FREE SPEECH! This ass-hat has the right to be as ignorant as he wants and to display his ignorance as loudly and proudly as he'd like. He also has the right to lose business by alienating half his town. He has the right to suffer any and all consequences of his stupidity. He has the right to rebuild his business if it mysteriously burns down.

OldOllie:
That's not even in America, you stupid schit. NOBODY has said that image of Bush was "okay."

It may be a little poor in taste, but I don't really see anything wrong with it. I thought more Americans would prize their freedom of speech.

@patchouly: That wouldn't likely be possible. HMOs are so entrenched in the US economy any policy would have to include them out of necessity. I suppose it could resemble our system, as some private companies provide the services, but standards and care are set by the government. I'm just not sure it would really work down there.

patchouly, for the record, Obama tried that. That was the desire and goal. The half of our country who hates any idea, ever, that threatens free markets and/or comes out of a Democrat's mouth, however, put the kibosh on that plan super quick, even though they would have benefited from such a plan. One can't account for the lack of logic of cultism/religion, however

Dump the crappy "force insurance on everyone" crap that you guys are calling "health Care" and pick up a real health care system like the rest of the civilized world has. Free health care for all. No insurance companies.

I like Obama, but this "health care" is not health care.

I doubt that Obama said "let's lynch us some crackers"very much
As far as insulting heads of state. I dislike ours very much. Enough to say thaat he is a festering pile of dog snot and I hope he dies slowly from rabies. I hope they broadcast it so I can tape it.

Hey, McGovern1981, if anyone wants to form a Congressional White Caucus, they should feel free to do so. I mean, they're so much in the minority right now that creating a forum in which to convene to discuss any issues they feel are important to whites (like generally superior education, income, job opportunities, home ownership, etc.) in the country might be a helpful step for them to take!

Further, insurance company costs should actually go down under the ACA. There are many reasons why this is so, from contraception (versus covering births) to increases customer pools to lowered reimbursement rates driven by new Medicare reimbursement models. If the insurance companies want to pray on ignorance of the issues, they're the ones who should be held accountable. And, FYI, my rates have *not* increased. So, it's certainly not all companies doing that.
