Great posts and lots of food for thought, for the posters in this thread (except the ones that suck at reading comprehension).
I realize now that I misread k9bfriender, I thought he gave a proper description of a true Scotsman but he didn't. But what DSeid, ie no true xenophobe can be reasoned with, is wrongheaded. In general I agree with his vague position on appealing to non-college whites. Show them you care without abandoning the less enfranchised demos. IMO, my suggestion about a more employment focused immigration system kicks anyone to the curb. I think there's just an emotional reaction here, that even the appearance of flexibility on immigration is "giving in to the racists".
