Deacon Desmond C. Warren
Genaire: Deacon Desmond C. Warren: Why Minorities Support The Democrats?
Kai-ama H.: This a crock of crap. Respectfully speaking.
Genaire: What’s your take on it kai? I personally haven’t seen the black community benefit from any of the policies implemented by the democratic party.
The social welfare programs really don’t benefit anyone and lead to dependence.
It was in fact the republican party that fought for the abolition of slavery.
Margaret Sanger did in fact make the statements made in the article along with many other racist statements.
Kai-ama H.: Problem is the Republican Party has worse policies.
Today’s Republican Party is not the party that supported the abolition. Os slavery. There has been a complete 180.
It was president FDR who signed the New Deal into law shortly after the Great Depression that spawned what is essentially the New Democratic Party and their ideals.
The acceptance of African American Rights was considered liberal or progressive during the civil rights movement.
Conservativism goes against anything considered progressive. It hold on to the old guard of America.
Conservatism glorifies rich, white, male ideals, profits over people and a view of Christianity that upholds all if Gods laws and little of Christ’s mercy.
No party is perfect. But most of what I value are currently represented, at least in theory, by the Democratic Party.
However currently supporting Bernie Sanders not Clinton. To each his own. #nojudgement. I’m way too liberal for that. 🙂
Genaire: My views have always been conservative. I personally consider myself more of a libertarian than a republican since most republicans are rino’s.
Liberalism only serves to breed dependency. Dependency is fine but it shouldn’t be taken forcibly out of people’s taxes. Charitable organization should be responsible for charity not forced taxation.
I haven’t had the privilege of having children but when I do I know it will be my labour, my business that supports my family with zero aide from the government. It is my responsibility not the responsibility of the government to care for my family.
Genaire: The whole abortion issues leaves the door open for people to be carefree and irresponsible knowing big daddy government will make things all better. One needs to be held accountable for their actions which will never happen when you tax the populace liberally.
Kai-ama H.: If being held accountable for irresponsible decisions leaves American Citizens starving and on the street, then I gladly pay taxes to “provide for the general welfare” as stated in the preamble.
but outside of money and being over taxed, which I do not enjoy, I am liberal in my thoughts that everyone regardless of their race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs etc has the rights and freedoms that all Americans are afforded by citizenship.
If someone believes the gov’t has limited power that includes limited power over a women’s uterus.
And if anyone truly thinks welfare is fun, pays substantially, or allows women to just have babies they have no clue. Food stamps helps fellow Americans not starve. Most of which goes to children.
Kai-ama H.: We are speaking of the same America that we both love! Only different ideological views.
Kai-ama H.: PS when u file federal taxes from your business you receive or are eligible to receive aide from the gov’t in the form of tax credits.
Big businesses can get millions of tax credits equating to zero taxes paid and receive millions in gov’t kick backs. That is Infact welfare. Yet we hear more about a poor mother and her food stamps ruining the country.
Genaire: I don’t think people should be left starving on the street. I however I don’t think others should be responsible for others bad decisions. Private charitable organizations not forced taxation is the answer.
I don’t believe an entity is too big nor too small to fail (with exceptions made for the disabled, elderly and youth of course).
Of course have all the abortions one desires but be willing to pay for them out of your own hard earned dollar.
Kai-ama H.: Points taken. Agree to disagree
“The assumption that spending more of the taxpayers money will make things better has survived all kinds of evidence that it has made things worse. The black family, which survived slavery, discrimination, poverty, wars and depression, began to come apart as the federal government moved in with its well-financed programs to help.” – Thomas Sowell
