Political Chumps

In 2012 Mitt Romney garnered 17 percent of the minority vote, while unemployment was at a staggering 14.4 percent. Today the minority unemployment rate is 12.2 percent, not better off than we were 2 years ago. Why do we continue to keep voting for a party that does nothing for us, but keep us happy in debt and regulation.
Why should minorities vote the Republican ticket this year? Simply put, the Democratic Party has done nothing but enslave the minority community with big government promises and bigger government lies.
Malcom X spoke about this issue in plain terms back in 1964:
“The Democrats have been in Washington D.C. only because of the Negro vote. They’ve been    down there four years, and they’re — all other legislation they wanted to bring up they brought it up and gotten it out of the way, and now they bring up you. And now, they bring up you. You put them first, and they put you last, ’cause you’re a chump, a political chump.”
“Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race.”
What would Malcolm X say about today’s 95 percent black vote? Did the Democratic Party keep its promises to push education reform and encourage job creation? Absolutely not. With failing schools in low income minority neighborhoods, without giving parents a choice to take their children out of those failing schools, and into better ones. The Democratic Party has failed to bring down the jobless rate in the minority community, and have pushed minimum wage earnings as a way of life.
It’s time that minorities take a different path, instead of continuing to go down the road of broken dreams and promises.
