Why I think Democrats my be a thing of the past -

My theory is that Republicans have more kids. The religious right probably has bigger families. And our poltical offiliations are largely determined by our parents and our upbringing. 10% of of democrats generally dont have kids at all. I havent really met any liberals that have big families. So the Republicans, in the long term are going to outnumber us by a longshot. They are going to take over the world.

Well, I don't think China is Republican.

But what you're saying about kids is true. The bad news for America is that religious right are not very progressive. You keep this up and America will not be a scientific powerhouse in the future.

Which is good news for China and bad news for America. Well for the long term anyway. In fact this could be a good news for Europe too because they always picking up Europe's best scientist for many years. The European scientist will likely to stay at home if those religious people stops all these research.
China is not republican they don't want to go back to the feudal past for sure.
