Skip to comments.Latino and Black Americans - For God's Sake, WAKE UP!
Posted on 11/16/2012 10:39:41 AM PST by Jeff Head
The pivotal election of 2012 is over. The most liberal, progressive candidate in the history of American politics, with the worst record on the economy in his first term, Barack Hussein Obama, won re-election to a second term by 1.5-2.0% of the vote.
The over-riding segments of the population that enabled his victory were the Black vote (who voted for him by over 90%) and the Latino vote (who voted for him by over 70%).
And they did so, absolutely against their own best interest. Oh, in the short term it can certainly be argued that Obama's campaign of "social justice," and equalizing the playing field from his perspective...which perspective is a socialist, redistribution of wealth perspective at best, and a marxist perspective at worst, is appealing to voters who find themselves as a group in the lower echelons of the American public in terms of employment, family stability, poverty, and crime rates.
When a politician promises specifically to "right these wrongs," and to give these voting blocks "stuff," be it contraceptives, food stamps, a portion of richer people's income, free school loans, easier housing, etc., etc. one can see why people would be tempted to vote for them. And make no mistake, that is exactly what the progressive left is doing, as they have done for decades. Dangling entitlements and free "stuff," in front of people in an effort to buy their vote.
But everything has a cost...as we shall see, the cost is horrific for those whose life styles, livelihoods, and social positioning are adversly impacted.
Despite it being hard to look beyond the entitlements and hand-outrs, it is all the more important to examine the record of the politicians promising such things. Pewrhaps they do so to hide their actual record. What they have actually done (or not done) for these constituencies, is critical to determine before making a decision as to who should lead this nation and address ts economic and social problems.
This nation spends over a trillion dollars on welfare every year. Since the inception of "Great Society" under Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s, this nation has spent tens of trillions of dollars at the behest of the progressive left to try and "equalize," things by "giving" away money, perqs, food stamps, house loans, school loans, etc., etc.
Have things improved?
No, they have not.
By abandoning the time honored and proven methods of hard work, personal accountability and responsibility, advancement due to merit, and the natural competiveness and reward of the free market, these socialist policies have and are failing here in the United States...and failing miserably...just like they have every where else on earth they have been attempted.
The ultimate outcome will be less for all, poverty for more and more, bankruptcy for the nation, and less and less wealth in the hands of the people as a whole, and more and more wealth and power in the hands of progressive government politicians and appoitnees who will live like kings and queens as they "govern" the rest of us. For example, take Barack and Michelle Obama. As President and the 1st Lady, in 2011, their upkeep, outside of official duties in the office of the Presidnecy cost the US taxpayers 1.4 billion dollars alone!.
And while they live like royalty (which Americans fought to gain their independence from in the 1770s and 1780s), here are the brutal statistics for Latinos and Blacks regarding major demographics that they experience day in and day out in the society created by the progressive liberal left:
Thjese are the results of what Barack Hussein Obama has presided over. A man who took a wholly preventable and manufactured economic crisis in 2008...which crisis was predominantly a result of these same failed policies...and then made it worse between 2008 and 2012.
All of this simply goes to show the abject failure of the progressive, leftists policies that Obama has presided over, and which he will increase in his next four years. The very policies the Black and Latino populations are suffering under...and which they voted for in overwhelming numbers.
WAKE UP FELLOW AMERICANS!
Like a watchman on the wall, the the warning bell must be tolled. Yes, "WAKE UP FELLOW AMERICANS!" Do not succumb to the promise of free "stuff," and social equalization promised by politicians who have failed to improve the lot and standard of living and way of life for the very people they claim to help. They have no intention of "helping," they have every intention of "controlling." They want to ensure permanent voting blocks, taking advantage of people in these bad circumstances...which circumstances they themselves have created and then continually promises to "fix"...a fix which never comes.
They never intend for it to. In fact, the only "fix" is that the "fix is in."
Awaken to your dilema and divorce yourselves from the Pied Piper mentality these leftist politicians and race baiters, and divisive, class envy promoters are peddling!
Instead, hold fast to the time honored traditions and values we all hold dear as Americans...depending on our God and ourselves to provide as best we can for ourselves, and depending on families, our churches, and private charitable organizations to help when in need...and not a government and politicans who want to use the needy for their own ends. No longer listen to or give credence to the absolutely misleading, illogic of the progressive left.
Faith in God, strong families, hard work, personal responsibility, honesty, integrity, the free market, and a reliance on our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the keys. No one can "give you," happiness. You must use these fundamental values and then pursue and find it for yourselve! THAT is the promise of America...that you are free to do so.
...and this does not even begin to discuss the 100% moral turnaround this President made on marriage, the most critical and imporant institution in our society, the destruction and demeaning of which adversely impacts every one of those demographich measurements mentioned (and a lot more) listed above. President Barrack Obama stated as the President of the United States, that marirage should be defined as including two men or two women instead of the Biblically revealed and clear principle that marriage, ordained of God, is between a man and a woman.
Beware any man or woman or party that promises a quick fix for you on the backs of others. Or promises that your "special interests," no matter how perverse, will be included as the norm for society. Such politicians are snake oil salesmen of the worst sort and their attempts to use class envy, a promise of free stuff, and thier power in government to force these things are nothing but a deceit and lie to empower themselves at your expense.
God bless America, and God bless her people to turn to Him and His time-honored and proven moral and societal values for our hope and for our success!
Remember, 2014 and then 2016 are coming! How and who you vote for makes a difference...a real difference that has impact beyond the rhetoric and platitudes. Vote for an impact that will allow YOU tp improve your life and that of your children and grandchildren. Vote for self determination, for personal responsibility and accountability, and for real promise...promise that leads to success and your own personal improvement and that of your family, neighbors and friends...and away from this endless captivity and morass.
If we put out hearts and souls into this, we can do it...and we must do it if we are to avoid the brick wall and conflagaration that is looming. It may be unavoidable at this point, but for the sake of my kids and grandkids, I have to try.
America at the Crossroads of History
You may have to involve what is called a bit of “tough love” on these folks.
Please read...and if you are so inclined, pass it around, particularly to every Latino and Black American you know who might read it.
Many may not buy it now, but if they have the truth buried in their mind, the time will come when it rises to the top and their hearts may change.
I think it’s all about free stuff.
Romney promised jobs.
Obama promised free stuff.
Perhaps this is a stupid idea and probably an impossible one but purchase a major network and put a truly conservative news agency in place and also truly conservative entertainment shows etc etc.
We most definitely will...but they are adults and are going to have to understand why because they can all vote.
Sadly, if we simply berate them, they will do exactly as they did this election and turn to the man behind the curtain giving them candy.
We have to get people to know that they are being lied to, taken advntage of, and placed in economic serfdom so that elitists can govern over them...taking abjest advantage of them, and never helping them in the least.
Until they get a glimmer of that in thir hearts...they will simply walk away from the tough love...until it is too late and circumstance brings about an historical “tough love,” of Biblical proportions that pulls us all into its maw.
Thay may well be what is going to happen at this point, but such a course will be so unbelievably horrific with literally millions of dead that I must try everyhting in my power to educate them with direct and unambigous truth in the hopes of avoiding it while still retaining our Republic.
Good article, Jeff!
I agree...it was absolutely about that and Obama pulled it off. we have to find a way to counter it and bring millions of those folks back around.
“I think its all about free stuff.
Romney promised jobs.
Obama promised free stuff.”
Not only that...whitey is the enemy. They vote on skin color. We can ask my neighbors who are mexicans. They refuse to speak English.
Tough love is saying what is the truth, even if it hurts, because it will get folks to THINK.
Exactly. They are like Lennin’s and Stalin’s “useful idiots,” and when they are done with them, they will slaughter many of them...as many as the deem necessary to cow the rest into remaining serfs and doing all of the grunt work for the ruling elite.
We can educate them before that happens...at least we have to try in my opinion, and do so with direct and unambigous truth.
In translation, it could very well sadly take a second American civil war to bring about this change, which, could sadly as you have said, bring in many deaths.
Tough love means telling the truth.
I have a young hispanic acqaintance who I tried to explain the damage that obamacare would create, I gave her examples, facts, reports that doctors would leave the field, etc. Her mind was totally closed, her only response was “I don’t believe all that fear mongering”.
We are sadly a very divided country.
>The over-riding segments of the population that enabled his victory were the Black vote (who voted for him by over 90%) and the Latino vote (who voted for him by over 70%).
And they did so, absolutely against their own best interest.<
You will NEVER convince them of that. Don’t you know that the Sun sets in the East?
It’s about free stuff AND tribal mentality.
A wolf pack smelling blood, sharks tasting it.
They will not be educated. Give up that little conceit and get ready.
And in the end, they lose, and lose BIG, MARK MY WORDS.
I am sick and tired of hearing the myrmidons in the media tell white republicans that they need to reach out to black and hispanic voters more and tailor the messaging. First let me say this. If you dont understand the meaning of limited government, individual liberty and the ability to own private property as well as unalienable rights. You are lost PERIOD. Blacks that vote for their slavers of the Democratic party suffer from the greatest case of Stockholm Syndrome in the history of Stockholm Syndrome. Here we have a group of Americans that have suffered through slavery, Jim Crow, Dred Scott, KKK, Civil War and Civil Rights turn right around and vote for the people that brought that upon the heads of blacks. That is more effective brainwashing in the history of recorded man. The is insidious and pathetic men like Frederick Douglass and Booker T Washington saw this coming and so should we. Obama and Romney are our fault they are two sides of the same coin and that is why 3 million republican voters stayed at home. He was worse than McCain and didnt suffer Obama to the attacks that he launch during the primaries. That is telling about Mr. Romney as well as the lack of response from him when they attacked his wifes treatments for her MS. Someone attacks my wife I get ballistic, I dont know about you. Even Sarah Palin went off when her kids were attacked as well as Michele Bachman. Ladies and Gentlemen we must not give up hang in there and keep fighting
It’s a good goal, and I spent many, many hours talking to all sorts of blacks and some Latinos before the election about why they shouldn’t vote for Obama. My argument was pretty simple: results. The actual consequences of Obama’s policies have been that blacks and Latinos have suffered greatly from unemployment, poverty, etc., and no government benefit can begin to make up for that.
Unfortunately, it fell on deaf ears, for the most part. The sad fact is that black Americans have never really participated in the free enterprise system. We went from being slaves, to sharecroppers, to welfare dependents and government workers. Yes, there are many exceptions, but for the large part of the population, that’s who we are — descendants of slaves and serfs, now welfare recipients and public employees.
On top of that, you have an educational system, media, churches, etc., all saying that the GOP is racist and trying to “put y’all back in chains”. Add it all up (with a bit of fraud in the mix for good measure), and you get 20,000 votes in Philly for Obama, not a single one for Romney.
The only hope is that enough non-blacks figure it out before it’s too late, and vote in a real free market, conservative government, and the resulting improvements are so compelling so as to be undeniable, such as occurred during the Reagan Era. It’s hard for me to imagine that happening at this point, however, given the demographic shifts. White people will have to vote 75% Republican before the GOP would have a chance on the national level, and unfortunately, 30+% of white people are brain dead liberals.
