    1. The impact of the Democrat Party on the African American community in America has been one of the calamities of history. The Democrats are the party of slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Klan. The reason the Civil Rights Act of 1964 took until mid-century to pass was that the Democrats would not take their boot off the neck of African Americans until Martin Luther King had made them a politically potent force. This in spite of Republican efforts to outlaw lynching, poll taxes, and pass Civil Rights Acts in the prior 50 years, not to mention Ulysses Grant's destruction of the first manifestation of the Klan in 1871 and the Civil Rights Act of 1875.
    2. Just as African Americans were gaining ground in the enterprise economy and in education in the 1940s and 1950s, the Democrats sidetracked a large proportion of them with the welfare plantation in the 1960s. In 1960, the illegitimacy rate in the black community was 35%. Last year, it was 76%. The welfare plantation has destroyed the black family, but by creating a dependency constituency it keeps the Democrats in power. Independent citizens will not sustain the Democrats in power. They need client constituencies for that and are good at creating them.
    3. Democrats want to expand the welfare plantation. Republicans want to expand participation in the enterprise economy.
    4. Democrats want people dependent on the government, which means politicians and bureaucrats. Republicans believe people are fulfilled by participation in the enterprise economy which also contributes to strong families.
    5. Democrats believe in hierarchical direction of the economy. Republicans believe in private initiative and economic independence.
    6. Democrats believe that government management of health care and government determination of when you should die is best. Republicans believe that doctors should be in charge of your health care.
    7. Democrats believe that all cultures are equal and that a successful culture such as ours, being no better than other cultures, can only have succeeded by cheating or by theft. Republicans believe that the pie is not finite and that it is increased by the creativity, energy and labor of free people.
    8. Democrats do not believe in American exceptionalism. Republicans believe that we have created a superior culture.
    9. Democrats are unable to see that radical Islam is a threat to the values and protections of the Constitution and think appeasement of its demands is the right course. Republicans believe that there is no substitute for victory over radical Islam.
    10. Democrats believe in vote theft and ballot stuffing, techniques the party has used for over 100 years. Republicans believe that the ballot should only be exercised by citizens and that fair elections are critical to a healthy society.
    11. Democrats are bankrupting America. The deficit is shocking; the buildup of debt will ruin the country. They are willing to dismantle the military to continue on the current path. Republicans believe that spending must be brought back down to 20% of GDP without gutting the military.
    12. Democrats believe in Keynesian economics. Republicans believe that the Keynesian economics practiced by the Obama administration have been a disaster (except of course for the recipients of the stimulus), with the labor participation ratio the worst in 30 years and the mean time between jobs having exploded to 40 weeks from a norm of 15 weeks.

    Oh noes! All the poor black people were FORCED onto welfare!

    Well, if that's the case, I guess we don't have to worry about hearing any "they're a bunch of good for nothing freeloaders" next time a welfare discussion comes up....

    Democrats=Liberals=Progressives=Socialists


    It's a simple as that!


    Socialism DOES NOT WORK WELL FOR THE PRIVATE SECTOR! That is why more and more people want to become government employees.

    Some of those people crack me up. On one side of their tongue 'The Blacks' are taking all of their jobs because of Affirmative Action and then in the next instance 'The Blacks' are all on welfare. Which one is it?

    What are examples of the 'Socialist' policies they have enacted?
