ALLEN WEST: Black Americans should vote for Mitt Romney

Illustration Obama Crushes by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

I am always amazed when Black Americans vote Democrat because ‘they have always been Democrats’.  Why?  Wasn’t Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. a Republican?  I applaud the growing number of Black Conservatives and the values they represent.  For another take on this mindset please read the following article by Rep. Allen B. West via The Washington Times.  He considers Obama’s hand-outs a form of slavery.

America is no doubt the greatest country the world has ever known. Our citizens have the opportunity to be anything they want to be, worship as they please and live as they please. We are truly free.

Still, Americans are suffering. They have lost their jobs, they have lost their home, and in many situations, they have lost hope.

For the black community, the situation is even more dire.

Black unemployment hovers around 14 percent, compared to 8 percent unemployment overall. For black teenagers, the number more than doubles, as 38 percent of black teens are unemployed.

It is not just the undereducated black Americans who are suffering — 6.6 percent of black Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree are unemployed, a rate 50 percent higher than the overall unemployment rate for those with a four-year college degree.

Since 2007, black median household income has declined by 11 percent — the largest decline of all major racial and ethnic groups.

In 2011, the poverty rate among black Americans was 27.5 percent. The poverty rate among blacks living in families headed by women is 41 percent.

President Obama’s programs continue to pour billions into black communities across the country in hopes of curing well-documented socioeconomic problems, including failing schools and inadequate housing, rampant crime and drug abuse, black-on-black killings, unemployment and more. Still, despite the courageous efforts of many local institutions, agencies, school leaders, grass-roots organizations and community residents, the problems remain, and in many places have become worse.

It will take new ideas and new voices to find solutions. It will take a president who is committed to policies of economic freedom as opposed to economic dependency. Mitt Romney’s belief in basic conservative principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual industry leading to self-sufficiency and his beliefs about equality of opportunity will revitalize the black community. Mr. Romney’s policies would enable urban people to empower themselves and, ultimately, become self-sufficient.

When it comes to education, black children are 17 percent of students nationwide, but they are 42 percent of the students in our worst-performing schools. Mr. Romney supports empowering parents of at-risk students in the inner cities to escape failing schools by allowing federal dollars to follow children to the school of their choice.

Many black-owned businesses struggle to gain access to capital that would enable expansion or fund operating costs. Sixty percent of startups are in the white community. Compare that with just 9 percent of startups coming from the black community.

Mr. Romney will reform regulatory policies that can help black-owned businesses increase and thrive. He will reform Dodd-Frank and allow more money to be accessible to responsible black community banks so they can get money into the hands of responsible black entrepreneurs. Lower capital gains taxes and dividends also will incentivize growth in the black community.

Mr. Romney also plans to revisit the concept of urban economic zones, an idea from the late congressman and HUD Secretary Jack Kemp and Reagan economist Art Laffer. Enterprise zones are geographic areas of high unemployment that qualify for special tax breaks.

What Mr. Romney understands is that communities are best served when they’re empowered to care for themselves. The more they come to rely on government checks, the less they learn to rely on their own ability and ingenuity. As my mother always told me, “Self-esteem comes from doing estimable things.”

Conversely, Mr. Obama’s appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today and does not promote economic freedom.

Still, it is easier to convince people that government should be doing something for them that it currently isn’t doing than to convince them that government shouldn’t be doing something for them that it currently is.

More than 95 percent of black voters voted Democratic in the last election. I am hoping we can change this status quo. When you invest your money, you diversify. You don’t put it in one single account. Black Americans need to invest their political capital so they have a voice across the entire political spectrum. If we don’t, the black community will be taken for granted and risk becoming politically irrelevant.

A recent poll showed the percentage of black Americans who have a “strongly positive” view of Mr. Obama has slipped from 83 percent to 58 percent. Those numbers show black Americans are paying attention, and they don’t like what they see.

I grew up in inner-city Atlanta, and I can tell you the most conservative people I know are my neighbors in the black community. It isn’t just in Atlanta. Thirty-three percent of Americans in the black community self-identify as conservatives. They are anti-abortion, and they believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Black Americans need to vote their values in November, and they will find themselves more aligned with Mr. Romney and the Republican Party. It is time for the “Party of Lincoln” to re-connect with black America.

Under Pressure and Amidst Boos, DNC adds God and Jerusalem to their Platform!

Wow, talk about caving under pressure!  The Democrats are walking back their actions to remove Jerusalem and God from their platform.  Why are they always walking things back – I thought their motto was ‘Forward’?!?

Amendment 1

Page 32, Line 48:  We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make to most of their God-given potential.

Amendment 2

Page 63, Line 26:  Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.  The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.

Amidst boos and multiple votes, the DNC have now added Jerusalem and God to their platform and, although they claim it was by a 2/3 vote as required, it didn’t sound that way to me.  Listen and you be the judge:

 

 

It sounds like our Arab and atheist friends were booing the changes.  What does that say about the Party?

 

Allen West: Democrats Are ‘Afraid of Black Conservatives’

By Greg McDonald via Newsmax

Rep. Allen West lashed out Thursday against what he described as race baiting by Democrats determined to defeat his re-election bid this year and keep Mitt Romney out of the White House.

Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the Florida Republican described a super PAC ad depicting him punching white women as racist because it portrays him as what he characterized as a “stereotypical” violent, black male.

“It has me with a gold tooth. And I think you can see from my smile, I don’t have a gold tooth,” West told Hannity. “I think that that is quite stereotypical. And then of course having me as an African-American male, punching a white senior woman and then another white woman, that is definitely not in concert with the values that I stand for.”

The ad being run by a political action committee in support of his Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy goes after West for “voting to end Medicare as we know it,” cutting women’s healthcare, and supporting a GOP budget that “has mauled middle-class families.”

“I don’t believe in violence against women. But this is what happens, Sean, when you’re in the age of [President Barack] Obama and the age [of ] the liberal progressives,” West told Hannity. “You cannot talk about the issues, they cannot run on any type of record, you cannot talk about the economy, the debt, and deficit.

“So these are the type of attacks against your character, the lies that they put out there,” he added.

West also recalled the attacks from Democrats after he made a speech kicking off his re-election campaign earlier this year, in which he said the growth in the nation’s food stamp program was “a new form of enslavement.”

“Of course, everyone on the left went absolutely idiotic and tried to condemn me about bringing up the specter of slavery. You know, it’s . . . hypocrisy,” West said.

He also noted that if Romney’s GOP running mate Paul Ryan had said what Vice President Joe Biden did about Republican policies putting black Americans “back in chains,” the Democrats would have gone “absolutely apoplectic.”

West said he believes the Democrats and the Obama campaign have adopted a strategy to go  after “black conservatives” in the Republican Party, including Condoleezza Rice and others because “we intimidate them.”

“They’re afraid of us because there are more of us that are able to stand up on our own and talk about the failures of liberal progressive policies, especially toward the black community,” West said. “They . . . definitely don’t want to have individuals that can stand up on their own.”

West said Democrats are playing the race card because “they want to make sure that they get that large voting electorate out there from the different communities.”

“They look at us as collectives, not as individuals,” he continued. “And you have to understand that this is going to continue to happen. And the president emanating from Chicago, it’s all about Chicago-style politics, it’s about fear and intimidation, it’s about lies and deceit.”

Obama Campaign Gears Up For Massive Voter Fraud

By  Via The Western Center for Journalism

Charlie Rangel, flanked by high-level Democrats, recently strutted up to the microphone declaring himself the winner against Hispanic opponent Adrian Espaillat in the race for New York’s 15th Congressional District. At least until his opponent discovered that polling places were illegally asking voters for ID, were turning away pro-Espaillat voters, and even were reporting zero votes to suppress the counts.

 

What a shocker: Charlie Rangel was involved in massive voter fraud and intimidation.

No one is surprised, really. Far-Left “Progressive” (i.e., socialist) Democrats have been involved in these tactics for years. Like Obama, Rangel was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America in 1996. Like Obama, Rangel has deep ties to the unions and Alinsky (ACORN-style) groups that are the shock troops of voter fraud.

Imagine if the tactics used in the Rangel/Espaillat race were used on a national scale. Where the entire Democratic National Committee (DNC), all the major unions, and all the “Progressive” groups were engaged in a massive voter fraud and voter intimidation campaign.

Well, we don’t have to imagine it as this is what occurred in 2008 with Obama supporters during the Democratic Primary, as countless poll workers, Hillary Clinton supporters, and simple bystanders extensively reported.

And the mainstream media did what they do best and ignored it.

Now imagine all the previous groups banded together with the power of the Obama presidency, the power of the DOJ, the power of all aligned city governments, etc., involved in a repeat of what we witnessed in 2008.

We will have an attack on our election process that makes the ballot stuffing and intimidation of 2008 look like child’s play.

Do we think Eric Holder is running around the country blathering about the evil of voter ID laws because he cares about minority voters? Holder is nowhere to be found when Espaillat, a Hispanic, is calling foul.

The Obama campaign and Eric Holder’s DOJ are gearing up for a tidal wave of voter fraud and intimidation that will drown this country with a corrupt election beyond resuscitation.

Both Obama and Eric Holder need to be impeached before this can occur.

Has Chief Justice John Roberts Forced Dems to ‘Own’ a Massive New Tax Hike Just Before Elections???

By Kasey Jachim

Many Conservatives are calling Chief Justice John Roberts a ‘traitor’ for upholding the individual mandate – the backbone of Obamacare.  Unlike many, I was not convinced today would be a slam-dunk victory for conservatives, especially in light of the Court’s immigration decision throwing Arizona under the bus - with the help of Justice Roberts.

Although I am very disappointed, I wonder whether or not there is a method to his apparent ‘madness’.  By striking down the individual mandate as unconstitutional via the Commerce Clause, did he just force Obama and the Democrats in Congress to ‘own’ the massive tax hikes soon to be imposed on many middle class Americans?  If so, has the Court just given Congress unlimited taxation powers?

“If courts agree that Congress can use its taxing authority to mandate the purchase of health insurance, that decision will have huge ramifications, says Randy Barnett, a professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University Law Center. “If Congress could do this for this reason, [it] could do anything for this reason” as long as it can call the consequence for noncompliance a “penalty.”  Congress “could make you have an abortion. They can make you buy a car from [General Motors]. They can make you work in the defense industry,” Barnett adds.”   DC Bar

If individuals don’t ‘purchase’ health care, IRS can withhold tax returns and even impose fines and liens on their homes.  The Obama administration is going to have massive damage control ahead of them, especially since the President vehemently denied the individual mandate was a tax in a 2009 ABC interview.

According to Eric Erickson in Red State:

“…while Roberts has expanded the taxation power, which I don’t really think is a massive expansion from what it was, Roberts has curtailed the commerce clause as an avenue for Congressional overreach.  In so doing, he has affirmed the Democrats are massive taxers.  In fact, I would argue that this may prevent future mandates in that no one is going to go around campaigning on new massive tax increases.  On the upside, I guess we can tax the hell out of abortion now.  Likewise, in a 7 to 2 decision, the Court shows a strong majority still recognize the concept of federalism and the restrains of Congress in forcing states to adhere to the whims of the federal government.”

Most Americans are already aware of the Democrats record of ‘Tax and Spend’.  Those on the receiving end love it because most of them do not pay taxes and are the recipients of the spending.  The Democrats will face a tougher battle in November and can no longer distance themselves from this Obamanation.

Did Justice Roberts just punt the ball back into the ‘political’ arena and out of the ‘constitutional’ arena?  In light of the Court’s decision, Republicans must now decide how to proceed with Obamacare.  There are many options floating around – Should they defund it?  Repeal it?  Repeal and replace it?

Let’s face it, as long as Harry Reid, his minions and Rinos have control of the Senate and there is a Democrat in the White House, none of the above are feasible.  The only way we can get out of this mess is to win them both in November.  I think Justice Roberts just helped pave the way!

Paybacks are hell and I think Justice Roberts just delivered his. If Obamacare had been overturned by the SC we would have seen a tremendous swelling of support and money for Obama and he would have had the momentum heading into November. Instead WE have the support, money and momentum!

I guess the Dems plan to win at all costs……but I am sure Eric Holder and his Justice Department will be there to prevent all attempts of voter fraud!

The Democrat Race Lie

Via Black&Right

The Democrat Race Lie

This whopper deserves all the attention it can get. Again, it shows the ignorance and contempt of the electorate liberals depend on.

In 2010, Democrats gave their website a facelift and whitewash. Check out the screenshot to see what they used to say about their civil rights history compared to now.

Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.

On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.

This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids. Despite the truth being out there for years, it’s probably not going to explode until some big shot news anchor gives us an “explosive expose” bringing us all those facts first, so he/she can proudly receive a Pulitzer…

August 20, 1996 Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population….

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political advantage.

The Democrats’ Conundrum

By Kevin Jackson via The Black Sphere

Kevin Jackson

As the election of 2012 approaches the Left becomes more desperate.  For the first time in his adult life Obama has to deal with the reality that he’s Barack Obama. And being Barack Obama has created a real conundrum for the Democrats.

Obama wanted to play president, not be president. And the real Barack Obama is anything but a confident competent winner.

Those who did not support Obama tried to sound the warning bell about Obama severe lack of well, everything. Obama lacked experience, and continues to lack character, integrity, and a love of the America that has taken over 200 years to build.

Now Democrats must face the reality of their creation, just like I did when I found out that Fonzi is not the cool Italian of Happy Days, but instead is a whiny Jewish guy named Winkler. Obama v2.0 doesn’t just reveal his vulnerabilities; he exposes the abject lunacy of the Left.

The scary thing for Democrats is they went all in on Obama. They spent so much time propping up their puppet, believing that style would prevail over substance. But Obama failed miserably, and the Democrats have no succession planning.

Hillary can’t run this election unless they abandon the “not so golden boy.”  I suspect that Hillary is smart enough not to want to run this election anyway, unless she has a defense to combat Obama and the Democrats’ scorched earth project.

The sad truth is that Hillary has two chances for a run in 2016: Slim and none.  Despite all the tolerance that Democrats supposedly have, they will not elect an old “rode hard put up wet” white woman to the presidency.  Don’t believe me; it already happened…in 2008.

Recall that Hillary was all the buzz in 2008, that is until the Democrats found an “articulate and clean” candidate with “no Negro dialect.” The Democrats dated Hillary, until they found somebody they deemed cuter.

Obama was perfect for the rebirth of radical Regressivism, sure to continue punishing minorities.

“We will have them n*ggers voting Democrats for 200 years!” – LBJ – Democrat ICON

But the strategy backfired, because Obama was supposed to be at the very least “ok.” Obama is ok, if you like that America is now fighting for Third World status.

The walls surrounding Obama are crumbling from within. Right-wing conspirers need not apply and the Republican machine has been switched off.  It’s the Democrats who are destroying Obama, which is one reason why the Obama administration is panicked.

Who leaked the recent story that Barack Obama was raised by a gay, transsexual, prostitute nanny, affectionately called “Tranny Nanny” by the media? Republicans didn’t have a clue… or they would have brought up Tranny Nanny in 2008.

And if that’s not bad enough for Obama, the media, repeat the MEDIA ran with the story.  It appears that in 2012, the media loves a salacious story about Obama’s past, more than they love Obama. The idea that Obama might be just a bit mixed up in the cabeza has been allowed to float in “the cloud.” God-forbid we actually get to see Obama’s grades or a new and improved birth certificate?

A recent poll has Obama dropping by 12 points with women; repeat, WOMEN! The same women who wanted to take Obama home to daddy—“HE’S HALF WHITE TOO DADDY”—are now abandoning Obama like last year’s fashions.

It doesn’t take a psychic to see the future for Obama. He sees it, and you can bet he’s throwing hissy fits all over the White House, as he contemplates updating his resume.  Obama is so desperate to keep his position[1] that he recently made a Truth Team declaration, saying that he has drilled for more oil than any other president. Obama wants America to believe that he is the Fossil Fuel President.

Forget that Obama has said publicly that he wants to destroy the coal industry. He publicly battles with “Big Oil” dirty revenue, and wouldn’t allow the Keystone Pipeline to happen or allow drilling on Federal land; but he’s now the Fossil Fuel president.

Meanwhile back at the algae farm, Obama discussed removing oil company subsidies, as he doubled down on failed green energy failures, boondoggles, and payola to same.

Instead of forming African-Americans for Obama, Obama should have formed: “White People Please Give Me One More Chance?”

Obama is reneging on his declaration that if he didn’t have things on track in three years, he should be a one-term president. For the good of the country. No sane people expected an incompetent megalomaniac to really live up to that declaration, now did we?

Two things have saved Obama to date:  The media and Obama’s “blackness.” Had it not been for either, Obama’s choices would have been impeachment or resignation. Wait, there is a third choice…Jail.

America has become so politically correct that despite the president being “black,” he can still run on the “I’m a victim of racism” ticket. But that’s changing and its vexes the Left.

The black president has been in charge, and America is worse off; we are all victims of Obama. Obama owns whatever America has become, because leaders must take credit or blame, regardless of the circumstances. Obama can’t admit he is not a leader over the worst America in decades. That is the Democrats’ conundrum.

Revealing the Truth about the Democratic Party

by Frantz Emmanuel Kebreau on 9/14/2011

I have done extensive research on the subject because at one point, I was a Democrat.  A few years ago, I was confronted with a fact that I knew to be false but after an investigation into the point, it turned out to be true.  It was that Martin Luther King was a Republican.

This of course forced me to extend my research into other areas.  What else could this Political Science Major be unaware of?  The Truth became stranger than fiction.  The list is quite long so here we go.

President Kennedy had little intention of enacting a Comprehensive Civil Rights Law during his 2 years in office.  Tensions in society were running so high due to the riots and such that by the 1963 State of the Union address he had no other choice but to enact some kind of Law.  Mind you, for the previous 100 years, it had only been the Republican Party who had supported any Civil Rights Legislations (I was not aware of these facts until I was 35 years old);

13th Amendment:  Abolished Slavery

100% Republican Support     23% Democratic Support

14th Amendment:  Slaves Allowed to be Citizens

94% Republican Support       0%   Democratic Support

15th Amendment:   Right to Vote for All

100% Republican Support        0%     Democratic Support

CRA 1866                   Enacted by the Republican Party            Equal Rights

CRA 1871                   Enacted by the Republican Party             Anti-KKK

CRA 1875                   99% Republican Support                          Anti-Discrimination

0%   Democratic Support

———–It took another 82 years until the next Civil Rights Act———

———–The Democratic Party blocked every attempt to equalize citizens of color—–

CRA 1957                   Enacted by the Eisenhower (R) Administration

Then Senator Kennedy Voted against this Bill

Filibustered by Democrats

CRA 1960                   Enacted by the Eisenhower (R) Administration

The final version was watered down by then Senator LBJ

Filibustered by the Democrats

CRA 1964                   82% Republican Support

63% Democratic Support

CRA 1965                   87% Republican Support

Voting Rights             75% Democratic Support

I do not want the “government” to treat me any differently than any other citizen.  Therefore, I consider equality of opportunity and equal voting rights to be the summation of Civil Rights in America.  If anything extra is afforded me or anyone else merely due to the color of their skin, I consider that to be an entitlement and patronizing.

Given my above statement, the Democratic Party, even if you sectionalize them by North and South, has never outvoted the Republican Party in any Civil Rights Law…Ever.  The actual numbers play out like this;

Lifetime Republican Party support for Equal Rights for all Citizens:                     94%

Lifetime Democratic Party Support for Equal rights for all Citizens:                     35%

Now to the point of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  This was a proposal that the Republican Party, during the Eisenhower Administration attempted to put forth but alas, their efforts resulted in the first Civil Rights Law in the previous 82 years…The Civil Rights Act of 1957 formed a Commission on Civil Rights.  The Plan of the Commission was to eventually enact the very Comprehensive Law of 1964.  Remember, this was the Bill that Senator JFK voted against, for political aspirations I’m sure.

JFK had his Justice department write the original Bill in early 1963.  The first version passed the House but stalled in the Senate.  Everett McKinley Dirksen (R), the minority leader in the Senate took it upon himself to REWRITE the entire Bill.  It took him 1 weekend and he had 2 helpers, 1 Democrat and another Republican.

The final version of the 1964 Civil Rights Act was written by a Republican which means that since the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, every Civil Rights Law was written by a Republican with more Republican support than Democratic Party Support.

Due to Dirksen’s tenacity, a cloture vote was successful and the Senate passed the Bill.  It then passed the Houses and became Law.

Some notes about its passage;

Robert Byrd (D) filibustered the Bill…the longest filibuster in American History

William Fulbright (D) voted against the Bill.  He was Bill Clinton’s mentor.

Al Gore Sr. (D) voted against the Bill

Speaking to two Governors on Air Force One, then President LB Johnson was quoted saying, “”I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” according Ronald Kessler’s Book in relation to the Law.

The big question is, did the South really turn “Red” after the CRA of 1964?  Well, I researched that also and found the following conclusions.

Presidential Elections (covering “The Solid South”)

The 11 Former Confederate States

Year                            Blue States                                          Red States

1964                            6                                                          5

1968                            6 (Segregationist Wallace took 5)       5

1972                                                    Landslide

1976                                                    Landslide

1980                                                    Landslide

1984                                                    Landslide

1988                                                    Landslide

1992                            4                                                          7

1996                            4                                                          7

2000                            0                                                          11

2004                            0                                                          11

2008                            3                                                          8

At least in Presidential elections, the Solid South wasn’t so “solid” until at least the year 2000 or 36 years after the CRA of 1964.

Now let’s take a look at the Governorships.

Governorships since 1964

(The 11 former “Confederate States”)

State                            Blue                            Red      Years until a “Red” Gov. was elected

Georgia                       7                                  2                      39 years

Mississippi                  8                                  2                      28 years

Alabama                     9                                  3                      23 years

Louisiana                    6                                  4                      16 years

Texas                          5                                  4                      15 years

South Carolina            5                                  5                      11 years

Arkansas                     9                                  3                       9   years

North Carolina            7                                  2                       9   years

Tennessee                   5                                 4                      7   years

Virginia                       7                                  5                       6   years

Florida                        7                                  5                       3   years

Total                           75                                39

That’s almost 2 to 1 Blue over Red.  I looked at the facts and not the rhetoric. The facts point to a different conclusion all together.  The South did not become “Solid Red” after the CRA of 1964.

After finding out that both Martin Luther King Sr. and Jr. were Republicans, I tend to deal only in facts and not with what I’ve been told.

Last Points

My former party, The Democratic Party says that they are for the “minority”.  In this case, I’ll just say “blacks”.  I believe in neither black nor minority but I defer to their thinking for this discussion.  If that’s the case, then how could the following piece of history have been erased?

Ninety-nine percent of the country does not know the name Hiram Rhodes Revels.  Here is his story and why the Democrats are not for “black” people.

At the end of the Civil War, Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy, was captured and subsequently imprisoned for 2 years.  Prior to this time period, Mr. Davis was a Senator from the State of Mississippi.  In 1870, the State of Mississippi filled the vacant post of Mr. Davis with one Hiram Rhodes Revels.  The curious fact behind this exchange is that now Senator Hiram Rhodes Revels did not only replace the President of the Confederacy, but he was also the First Black Senator in U.S. History…and virtually nobody knows his name.

One last point to explain this lack of universal knowledge…Jefferson Davis, The President of the Confederacy was a Democrat and his replacement, Senator Hiram Rhodes Revels, was a Republican.  Democratic leadership today will never share that history with their constituents of which I once was.  That led me to believe that the Democratic Party is more interested in my vote than the Truth.

It gets bit deeper.  13 former slaves became members of Congress between 1870 and 1901.  We as a nation killed our own citizens in a Civil War to FREE 4 Million slaves. 13 of those freed slaves became members of the U.S. Congress and the history books are silent to this fact.  640,000 Americans died in that war and the result was transformational yet, this groundbreaking and profound history is never taught in “left” leaning schools because it does not serve their agenda.  All 13 of the former slaves were Republicans.  I had to sift through the Library of Congress to reveal the following information…here it is for you in a video;

My belief is that the Party’s did not change.  The tactics changed.  They went from Pro-Slavery to Pro-Segregation to Pro-Entitlement, all of which results in nothing beneficial for the prosperity of an individual and is considered by many of my ilk, “Plantation Politics”.

All I want is the Truth and to be treated as an equal, no more and no less; as an equal.  I do not need the Democratic Party telling me that I’m “black” or that I’m a minority who needs their assistance.  I am not a color.  I am Frantz Kebreau, an American Citizen.

For the Democratic Party, it has always been about “Control” over Freedom.  Keeping the Truth from it’s constituents in order to maintain control over them is not what I want from my “Party”.
