    Not necessarily. You could have a diverse culture and prove it doesn’t work by looking at Europe where it has been tried.

    I made the case earlier about the near perfect Democratic society that was Rome, only to be destroyed by the "diversity" of other white European tribes. The concept of diversity is a few centuries older than Oprah's TV career.


    A culture must have a consensus, otherwise it fails.

    I believe that. And a culture can be multi faceted. The United States of America is the historical vanguard of that theory. But without the rule of law, liberty and market capitalism, we're just a very expensive continent between two oceans.



    Lawlessness, communism, socialism and Fascism aren’t cultural.
    If you think about it, those systems are DEFINITELY diverse from the American model. A case could almost be made that they are diverse of each other, but liberals every day cause me to question even that theory.


    Lawlessness is criminal, the rest are either ideologies or economics, although I see the point you’re making. Conservatism supports traditional values and I agree with that, but go too far and it becomes fascism and nationalism.


    To liberals, lawlessness is diversity. Sanctuary Cities are illegal, and they are praised by liberals as models of diversity. Liberals applauded when the friends of Michael Brown looted the city of Ferguson and burned it to the ground. Black Lives Matter is based on a praise of criminal behavior as well as racism: Black lives don't matter. ALL lives matter.

    Probably the biggest mistake we could make is trying to figure out the parameters of conservative versus liberal. They are mere labels that haven't always meant the same, at least over my lifetime. The term LIBERAL used to mean laissez faire free market capitalism, before the radical left wingers of the Port Huron Statement in the early Sixties turned that label into modern support for communism. The term CONSERVATIVE used to mean refusal to accept any change whatsoever, before the William F. Buckley/Ronald Reagan/Rush Limbaugh influence defined it as patriotism, freedom, liberty, the rule of law and market capitalism.

    Actually and I don’t know if you know, but Clinton got more votes than Trump. Trump won because of the strange way the votes are counted in America.

    That is not true at all, in ANY sense of the word: Donald Trump got 304 and KKKlinton got 227. Those are the ONLY votes that matter. And because they are based on the United States Constitution, there is nothing strange about that method. ALL presidents of the United States have been elected by the Electoral College. There is NOTHING peculiar about counting Electoral votes.

    You could make a case that there is something peculiar about county ANY votes at all from the rogue State of New York, where illegal aliens have been allowed ballots, in flagrant VIOLATION of the law. That is a new disease. But the Electoral College has elected EVERY past president in the history of this country.


    Diversity is simply cultural differences, which are said not to matter, but of course they do.

    For purposes of this thread, and my intent to expand on the definitions for purposes of a deeper discussion, diversity is a force, A VERY POWERFUL force of nature. It is the totally UNPREDICTABLE force of nature. And again, it's not that I'm totally against diversity. No civilized advanced human should distrust or fear diversity, whether in the form of different food, different weather or a person who looks differently. My point is that diversity by itself is not a strength, any more than an Atlantic tide is a strength to an eroding beach.

    Given the results of the popular vote I would say that your statement is statistically incorrect.

    Given the results of the ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE, I'd say you have never actually sat your ignorant ass down and read the Constitution. Most of us are laughing at your total lack of education.

    Right now, there are fifth graders who know more about the Constitution than you do, snowflake.

    Right. I'm a fan of the Electoral College. It prohibits mass rule. Something our forefathers envisioned was a problem. I was simply pointing to statistics and proving your point wrong. I did that successfully which by the way isn't hard to do with a rube like you.

    You have lost this argument and you know it. You're not a fan of the Electoral College, the Constitution or the Founding Fathers. You're like the rest of the idiot snowflakes who point to that HIllary popular vote fairy tale, most of it coming from illegal aliens in New York and California.

    The only thing you have successfully pointed out is your lack of education.
