There’s been a whole lot of shootin’ going on lately. And a lot of it has been that blacks have been getting shot. And a lot of it has been police officers getting shot. And most of it is pretty damn senseless. Now, I’ll back up cops trying to do their job every time out. I’m not saying they are perfect, far from it. But I will say that if you’re a criminal of any color, and you’re either trying to take a cop out, or run from a cop or committing a crime, you’re asking for trouble.
But I find something very interesting. It’s something that is putting a lot of blacks at odds with the Democrats. And of course, we all know for 65 years, the blacks have been a very solid and loyal vote for the Democrats. But there may be some chinks in that armor. See, blacks apparently like the Second Amendment. They like the fact they are able to buy guns. They see it as a civil rights issue. Democrats would love to severely trash the Second Amendment. They’d love to get rid of it altogether if they thought they could get away with it. Of course they can’t, but they’d love to try.
And I think it’s a position in one piece of the puzzle that the Republicans gathering in Cleveland to nominate Donald Trump can use to maybe sway a few blacks their way. Oh, I’m not trying to intimate that Trump is going to get the black vote. I’m not foolish. But I’m saying that while Hillary is out there railing for more gun control, blacks are out there saying it’s a civil rights issue for them to own a gun. There is a wedge that needs to be inserted and the GOP is able to do it if they play their cards right.
I’ll also go on record as saying that a) the GOP rarely plays its cards right. If they did, there would be no Democrat party because liberals basically make very little sense when it comes to logic. They survive on emotion alone; and b) while blacks have been loyal to the party, the party has done very little if anything to elevate the living conditions of the average black. Of course, Dems will tell you it’s the GOP’s fault, which is their answer to everything. They don’t EVER make mistakes, and they don’t EVER do anything wrong. Well, they do. And they have. If blacks had anything to show for 65 years of loyalty to the liberals, I’d probably say they should stay there. But why are more and more black ministers and more and more black leaders starting to question being with the Dems? It’s simply because the Democrats have failed the blacks, as they have failed America. Their policies and dreams of cradle to grave coddling sound nice, but don’t work. You always run out of money with their policies. It’s never worked anywhere in the world where the dreams come true.
The GOP needs to keep that in mind as they hold their convention. We should all keep that in mind.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
