Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. He discusses the history of the Republican Party, founded as an Abolitionist Movement in 1854. Guillory talks about how the welfare state is only a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.
He’s very correct.
I’m sorry to say I’ve not paid too much attention to local stuff (and I live in his city), but an earlier article stated he was originally a Republican who switched in 2007 to run for office in a heavily-Democratic district.
A very impressive fellow. I wish there were twenty million more like him.
Pretty good speech
He’s more articulate than the Republicans speaking of outreach.
Sen. Paul needs to start working with this former Democrat to expand the GOP.
Would he run against Katrina Mary? He ha my white vote.
Forgot to mention ... prolly an IRS Audit in his future
A great video and a good historical reminder. I hope this gets a lot of exposure. He presents his reasons for decision quite well. It made me proud to be a republican, and I don’t often feel proud of the party.
