The death of white supremacy will not be fun - for white supremacists
Warning members of the Republican Party it's getting yanked around by it's interlopers has been a frustrating and fruitless endeavour, and their latest scheme to use libertarians as a wedge for young voters (best exemplified by Rand Paul's trips to Berkeley and Howard Universities after (racistly) trying to manipulate the hispanic vote, shut government, defeat ObamaCare, !BENGHAZI!, etc.) is equally worthy of words of caution. So - for the billionth time - here they are again:

It's time to get your head out of the sand
If you haven't seen Alan I. Abramowitz's essay, "False Hope: Why Libertarians Won’t Help Republicans Win the Youth Vote," then be prepared to understand why false hope is worse than none at all:
"The Republican Party has a major problem with young voters. According to national exit polls, the GOP has lost the under-30 vote by a wide margin in every election since 2004. In 2012, Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney by a whopping 23 percentage points among 18-29 year olds. Romney’s deficit among young voters was responsible for his entire margin of defeat in the national popular vote. Based on the exit poll results, Romney actually won more votes than Obama among voters who were 30 years of age and older."

Read the whole thing if you must, but if you're here already, then you know what it says:
"An analysis of data from the 2012 American National Election Study raises serious doubts about the claim that a candidate with libertarian views would have strong appeal to younger voters. In fact, the data indicate that younger voters tend to hold relatively liberal views on social welfare as well as cultural issues."
White and black together, but as criminals
Culture Beats Politics.
The Right is over two decades too late
Hip-Hop is America's culture now (It's music is Rap) and it's a culture that thoroughly resists the history, and imperatives, of the culture that birthed it. This will not change. We can not hear you. We will not hear you. Until the Republican Party gets back to it's roots, as "the sheet anchor of the colored man's political hopes and the ark of his safety" - not a source of our irritation - they'll get nowhere.
"One of the most important reasons why the libertarian philosophy holds little appeal for most younger voters is that a disproportionate share of voters under the age of 30 are nonwhite. According to the 2012 ANES, nonwhites made up 40% of voters under the age of 30 compared with 25% of voters age 30 and older. Moreover, the nonwhite share of younger voters is almost certain to increase over the next several election cycles based on the racial composition of the age cohorts that will be entering the electorate in the future.
The libertarian philosophy of limited government holds very little appeal to nonwhite voters in general, and it holds even less appeal to younger nonwhite voters. Only 4% of nonwhite voters under the age of 30 were classified as libertarians compared with 23% of white voters under the age of 30. In contrast, 69% of younger nonwhite voters were classified as consistent or moderate liberals compared with 49% of younger white voters. These results suggest that the limited appeal of libertarian ideas to younger voters is likely to diminish further over time as the nonwhite share of this age group continues to grow."

Bamboozled is a 2000 satirical film written and directed by Spike Lee about a modern televised minstrel show featuring black actors donning blackface makeup and the violent fall-out from the show's success.
And it's because your "leaders" don't know this - no matter what color they are - they will never realize as anything of the kind,....
