A powerful video must-see before you vote!
By Greg Richards
Why did it take until 100 years after the Civil War, until 1964, to pass a Civil Rights Act? Because the Democratic Party would not take its boot off the neck of the black man until Martin Luther King made the black vote a political force. Dedicated to being in power above all else, the Democrats had to make a U-turn on their race policy in the 1960s and join the Republicans in passing the Civil Rights Act because they realized that after the black vote was counted, they were not going to win any more national elections without it.
But there was a problem. How was the Democratic Party going to overcome its deplorable record on race? It was the party of slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Klan.
What to do now? Get back in front of history with comprehensive rather than palliative welfare — the Great Society. The Democratic Party would become the friend of the black community by giving it things it wasn’t asking for, but were hard to resist.
But there is a big problem with comprehensive welfare: it destroys the role of men in the community and this was disproportionately true of the black community. There is nothing worse than taking away a person’s mission in life, making that person unnecessary and thus unwanted. That is evil. And today we see the results of that evil.
Single mothers can cope, but the family as a force in the community cannot flourish without men as a responsible presence. Without men, there is nobody to show boys how to behave, have someone to look up to and emulate, to set them straight when they go off the path, to show them how to be men. This has been true of every civilization in history.
But over the last 50 years, the Democratic Party wiped out the black family by wiping out the role of black men in order to stay in power. The black family had withstood 250 years of slavery and 100 years of Jim Crow, but was destroyed by 50 years of Liberalism. In 1960, the illegitimacy rate in the black community was 30%. Now it is 78%. And as Star Parker has pointed out, there is nothing unique about blacks. Whites are now where blacks were in 1960 and are on the same path.
What is the result of this devastation? There are now two Americas — Welfare America and Enterprise America.
The Democratic Party is the party of Welfare America and the Republican Party is the part of Enterprise America. Enterprise America is that part of America that is hands-on in its affairs. That does not mean the top managers of big business, which either out of necessity or out of temperament, in many cases cozy up to Big Government. There is also the billionaire effect, where billionaires, unaware of the wellspring of their own success, do not preach what they practice and support Welfare America for reasons of social standing.
Let’s compare the cultural attributes of Enterprise America and Welfare America.

Should believers disqualify themselves from their civic duty to vote or run for public office because of their beliefs?

Contrary to the opinions of the general public, Republicans are not “bad guys” and the Democrats ride in to the rescue! Let me see if I can break it down for you and clear up the discrepancies.
Democrats believe individuals are ill equipped or prepared to make their own decisions and care for their selves and family. Democrats believe it is the government’s responsibility to make these basic decisions for us and provide for the basic needs of every individual. Democrats believe that those who do not work are entitled to having their basic needs met by those who do work, otherwise known as the redistribution of wealth. Democrats believe in the power of the “elite” – whether government, educators, or union bosses – these individuals have the power and make decisions FOR the masses (presumably for their best interest?) They also believe in opening our borders and allowing people to come and go as they please unrestricted. What democrats do NOT care about is how to pay for all these programs, so they raise taxes.
Republicans believe in the dignity of every individual, and the right for each American to individual freedom. Republicans believe that all people are created with equal rights as outlined in the US Constitution. Republicans believe in the “inalienable rights endowed by our Creator” on each person regardless of sex, religion, or race. Republicans do not favor one group above another – all Americans have equal rights – all Americans taxed according to their income. Republicans believe the primary duty of the federal government of the United States is to secure our borders and protect American citizens. Republicans believe in LEGAL immigration. What Republicans do NOT believe is that those who have earned much, built businesses and hired employees, ought to be taxed MORE for their success to pay for those who choose NOT to work.
