Outreach to blacks is probably worthless, but Hispanics can be reached IMO. I don't know why Rand isn't doing more of that. I guess he doesn't want to touch immigration, which really limits the GOP's Hispanic outreach. Maybe he can find a way, but total opposition to a path to citizenship is extr...

re: A Misconception about "Rugged Individualism" - Zed
To the extent that government provides something that society could not do effectively on it's own, I think it's fair to acknowledge those contributions. Without public funding of education for instance, educational opportunities for low income children would realistically be much more limited. I ...
