The Anti-Slavery Party
It is sad to me that so many blacks have left the Republican party since the 1960s. I believe that they left because they were led by demagogues who did not have good intentions. Certainly they have been abused by the Democratic Party, which depends on black Americans for votes but passes policies to keep them in bondage, dependent on government handouts, living in dehumanizing and humiliating public housing, being indoctrinated in horrible public schools, and trapped in deteriorating city neighborhoods.
Barack Obama is running for President of the United States. I think there is a very good chance he will win. Despite the fact that he was abandoned by his black African father and raised by his white American mother and her parents, he has lived as a black man and gone to a militant black church for his adult life. He has risen to the top tier of politics in no time flat, while presenting himself as a totally black
man (albeit a handsome and eloquent one) and a political cypher. So how is it that this nation, which has enabled Obama, who came from nothing, to arise to a few steps away from the most powerful office in the world, can possibly discriminate against people like him? And how does this get blamed on Republicans and not Democrats? Do Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice feel discriminated against in the Republican party?
The Republicans started as the anti-Slavery party. They were always for Liberty and against human Bondage. That hasn't changed.
The horror of slavery in the 19th century was banished. Now collectivism, excessive taxation, the destruction of rights to free speech, and the holocaust of abortion (disproportionately killing black babies, for what it's worth) are terrible threats to American lives and freedoms, and Republicans oppose them while Democrats wish to impose them and spread them wider. And the threat of nuclear and biological weapons used in Jihad terrorism is a grave threat that all should recognize and oppose, but only Republicans seem to take seriously (despite the fact that the 9/11 planes attacked the Democratic strongholds of New York City and Washington DC).
Liberty is worth fighting for. That's what Republicans believe.
Democrats should think about it.
