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.
Demographics aren’t everything. Obama won’t be running next time, and there is no way for even the donks to ensure that their ultimate candidate has the requisite racial makeup to get out the minority vote.
