What's Race Got To Do With It?

I just finished reading “Can Southern Dems Rebound” an article by Jamelle Bouie of The American Prospect.

He concedes that race is not the only reason that political colors have changed in the south, but he believes that it is the major reason!

I can only hope that one day he listens to people outside his own echo chamber.

Race has nothing to do with it.

I am conservative because I understand that nations cannot spend more than they take in any better than families can.

I understand that when you tax something you get less of it. We tax prosperity and thus get less of it.

I understand that class warfare IS warfare, and warfare destroys. Most of those 9 percent of the population that is still unemployed are our poorest citizens. I think they would rather work than hold their begging bowl out.

I understand that our unique prosperity since the Industrial Revolution comes from using cheap and abundant energy to magnify our productivity. Making that energy rare and expensive will rob each and every one of us.

I understand that controlled markets are not free, not flexible, and not able to withstand corruption. I notice that all of Obama’s biggest donors got a free pass on the Obamacare  costs. What about all the small companies?

I am conservative because I realize that when a mother and a father BOTH raise a child, that child has a far greater chance of thriving rather than surviving.

I believe that when we grow up we should be treated as adults. I do not want my government telling me what to feed my children, or what size car I should buy.

I believe that we should embrace all innocent life, not just convenient life.

I welcome all American Citizens, all of them, to embrace the market based solutions that made our country the greatest one in all of human history, and offers us the best opportunity to pass that on to our children.
