Latino and Black Americans - For God's Sake, WAKE UP!
JEFFHEAD.COM ^ | Nov 15, 2012 | Jeff Head

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 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:


Blacks: 14.3%
Latinos: 10.0%
Whites: 7.0%

Blacks: 27.3%
Latinos: 25.6%
Whites: 9.8%

DIVORCE RATES: (1st time marriages) (3)
Blacks: 30.1 %
Latino: 18.1%
Whites: 16.3%

CRIME RATES: (Commission) (4)
Blacks: 1.33%
Whites: 0.47%

CRIME RATES: (Victim) (5)
Blacks: 2.30%
Latinos: 2.00%
Whites: 1.10%

Blacks: 31%
Latinos: 47%
Whites: 13% Asian/Other: 9%

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.


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.

Nice try, but both voter blocks are sound asleep IN the wagon.

Your chances of awakening them are, at best, only 47 %.

The 53 % who are pulling the wagon hear you loud and clear.

Rrighttack, there is patronizing tone there, my friend, at least none intended.

The truth is what it is...and we cannot color it or we become the very thing we fight. There is no superiority in the truth, there is just the truth.

People in most of these folks positions are not likely to buy it to begin least very few. but we have to make the effort and find the way to get the dialog into their heads so that as time goes on, they see, and consider, and begin to think for themselves.

My article is simply my own honest, and admittedly emotional plea, backed up by this very government’s own figures that show what these choices are doing to them.

I will not demonize these people themselves...just the ones who are pulling the strings and leading them down the promrose path to destruction like some kind of pied piper.

Most of these people have known nothing but the welfare state, entitlements, and broken families where government has substituted itself for Dad and the way to earn a living is to either have more kids, or simply take the welfare checks and food stamps and then try and survive. I understand full well that eople in that position are not going to respond to a 2x4...they are going to give you the finger and continue voting the way that will perpetuate all they have ever known.

We have to find a way to break through that with the truth...and I am more than open to better ways to do that as long as we do not surrender fundamental principle in the process.

The point is we have to try...not trying is not an option because the alternative will be horrific beyond imagination and people who think they can simply ride that bcuking bronco out with little impact to themselves are kidding themselves. Coloring the truth and giving handouts ourselves will not work because it leads to the same place, and berating these people will not work either...I understand that for all the reasons I just gave...they will simply saw, “screw you,” and continue voting the way they do.

In the end, we have to present them the truth and hope and pray to God we find a way to get through to enough of them...and then turn out our own in much better make a difference and start back.

Anyhow, that a lot of words to basically say I understand what you are saying...but am trying to get the message out as best I can. we all need to do the same IMHO. There are people each of us can reach that others cetainly may not and everyone we find and can turn makes a big deifference.

God’s speed.

“I think it’s all about free stuff.”

Of course; blacks and Hispanics who voted for Obama are laughing all the way to the bank. Whites and Asians should wake up; they’re footing the bill.

Welfare changed in 1996 because too many whites were siring bastards like their urban counterparts; Obama has decided that he’d rather have them voting Dem and took away the work requirement. I’m glad I fathered my own tax deductions (in addition to mortgage interest and property tax deductions); Obama’s programs won’t cost me much (yet). For the first time I started paying bills online (first pay period since the election); I was lazy about it before, but now I want to do my small part in helping shed federal postal employees. I don’t care if service is reduced to 3 times per week...

“Demographics aren’t everything.”

They play the largest role; many whites have stopped breeding, and we just saw consequences to that.

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 don’t 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 didn’t 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 wife’s treatments for her MS. Someone attacks my wife I get ballistic, I don’t 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

Worth repeating verbatum.

rediculous bigotry and self-righous judgemental attitude

That would be Mormonism...

I dont know of any other anti-Christian religion that is bigoted and discriminates against Christians even after their deaths...

and holds itself up as judge over them...

BTW did you want me to judge and correct your spelling mistakes ???

Tennessee Nana, for responses to any more of your Mormon bashing comments and attempts to interject religious confrontation in a thread where none was spoken of by anyone (but yourself), and none was sought, simply refer back my post 39 reply to you.

She indicated something about me cursing God...I really do not know what she is talking about. There is no such language in any of my article or post that she responded to. seems there's always someone who has to make something of nothing in order to try to interject their own agenda into the dialog. I simply have no more patience for that given the situation we all face.

God's speed to you, S.O.S!

Too late for this election for sure.

But if we are wise, and if we formulate the message properly, work hard, and seek God’s help, it is not too late for 2014 or 2016.

We heard a lot of doom saying in 2008...and then came 2010. We can do that again.

Sorry, Jeff. The black savages don’t count white votes, so the white savages won’t count black votes.
