2. Yep it's pretty much a lost case for them to appeal to minorities.

Most of us are low-income and understand that trickle-down only benefits people who are already successful. But if they don't want to ditch trickle-down, I think the only way they can peel off some minority voters is to adopt a stance in their platform about legalizing drugs like Bill Maher said last night. The Drug War has been an issue that neither side has really wanted to address, and it's up for grabs. The GOP claims to be about protecting people's personal freedom and lowering the deficit. The Drug War has cost the country millions, and a disproportionate number of minorities have been locked up for drugs that are safer than alcohol and tobacco. If Republicans were smart, they'd roll with it.
