War on Poverty: 2014 Archives

GUILLORY MESSAGE TO FELLOW BLACKS: THROW OFF YOUR CHAINS. BECOME REPUBLICANS.

Just a year ago the Louisiana black state senator Elbert Guillory announced he was becoming a Republican and issued a statement explaining why. His message to his fellow blacks is a powerful one that hopefully will be heeded. It's also a reminder to all Republicans of our civil rights heritage, of which not only should we be proud, but insistent on proclaiming every day: We are the Party of Lincoln. We stand for freedom and equal opportunity for all.

In 1854 the Republican Party was formed to succeed the Whigs with one main purpose -- to end slavery. In 1860 President Lincoln was elected with the votes of abolitionists in Massachusetts and other northern states. Just three years later Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation freeing all slaves in rebellious territory. In Congress Republicans drafted and passed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution freeing slaves, assuring them due process under the law and granting them voting rights.

Lyndon Johnson, no civil rights activist, cynically snatched the black vote away from Republicans with government handouts with the War on Poverty, crowing privately (to fellow Democrats) that his handouts would keep them n****** voting Democrat for 200 years.

Listen to what Senator Guillory has to say.

What's disturbing to all of us as Americans is that this dependency on government has not only kept too many blacks in poverty, it has created a situation in which, as one wise man observed, "fidelity to country is coming to be replaced by fidelity to democrats who give you stuff, just as that old bigot LBJ envisioned when he set out with his phony war on poverty in the 1960's. The entire modern democrat party "cares" about people only to the extent that said people will vote for them in perpetuity."

WHY WORK? I'M DOING FINE WITH THOSE CHECKS COMIN' IN

The War on Poverty has created a comfortable living for many who don't see any reason why they should work. The incentives encourage them to stay on welfare. All they have to do is vote for those who will keep the checks coming.

The audio below is from an Austin, Texas talk radio show recorded last October.


Not only is there a comfort with the money coming in as something they are entitled to, there is a resentment of illegal immigrants who are getting benefits they can't get, like free college. Even if they might think of getting off the gravy train and going to work, the math doesn't work. They would lose more in benefits than they would gain from entry level jobs. Government has created a perpetual welfare machine to keep those votes coming in. It seems dependency on government isn't all that bad.

The War on Poverty has succeeded. The more people on welfare the more votes the Democrats get.

For the health of the economy and the dignity of the individual, how can these incentives be changed? Listen and think about it.

And check out an essay by Mark Steyn we posted a couple of months ago on the post-work economy.
