America's Hispanic population is projected to soar in the coming two decades to 85,543,000, faster than some have expected, according to a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on Latinos.

CDC on Tuesday said the Hispanic population will total 22.8 percent of the U.S. population by 2035.

Others like the Brookings Institution predicted the Hispanic population would be a slightly higher 25.1 percent of the U.S. population but a whole decade later, in 2044. It is currently 17.7 percent of the U.S. population, at 56,754,000, said CDC.

Take a moment to reflect on how such a dramatic change in the country's population will affect our culture, economy, environment, welfare system, transportation system, health care system, education, and foreign relations.  And now remember that at no point did the American people ever vote for this, when they had a chance they voted against it (as with Prop 187 in California) and that the Republican Party does not even think this is worthy of discussion.

And then tell yourself this is a free country and we rule ourselves.
