That's a huge percentage, and a lot of families. It follows that many blacks would not support a political party that campaigns on the premise of smaller, limited government. There is another thread going here at FR where a freeper was told by a postal clerk that he voted for Ubama because Romney would close down his post office.

They target the poor and minorities. Undoing them is a winning ticket. Why should you need a half million dollars to drive taxicab?
