U.S.: Everybody getting down with the Freedom Ticket!

I'm taking my props cuz it's good to be right. In spite of my sore left shoulder, I'm patting myself all over my back. In a little while, I'll get up and kiss my image in the mirror. Here's an excerpt from a Newsmax story.:

Former newspaper publisher and talk show host Rev. Wayne Perryman doesn't understand why blacks support Democrats so blindly.

In fact in his new book, "Unfounded Loyalty: An In-depth Look Into the Blind Love Affair Between Blacks and Democrats," Perryman points out a number of facts that should have turned African-Americans against Democrats long ago.

Instead, blacks largely shun Republican politicians, though historically the GOP has been much kinder to blacks as a whole.
Perryman says his book is a reflection of a question asked of him by "a group of inner-city young people who had an interest in their African-American heritage, history, religion and culture." That question was: "Why are most blacks in America Democrats?"

In a refreshing breath of honesty, Perryman doesn't offer up warm platitudes or tired clichés. Instead, he prods readers to "answer that question yourself."

But to help all Americans in their journey to discover the truth, the former publisher and talk host provides some examples that not only bear repeating, but should be food for thought for all African-Americans. He writes:

"For 150 years blacks were victims of terrorist attacks by the Democrats and their Klan supporters, including lynchings, beatings, rapes and mutilations" (Editor's note: One of the most widely known Democratic ex-Klansman is Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia);

"On the issue of slavery, the Democrats literally gave their lives to expand it; the Republicans gave their lives to ban it;"

Many believed the Democrats had a change of heart and fell in love with blacks. To the contrary, history reveals the Democrats didn't fall in love with black folks, they fell in love with the black vote knowing this would be their ticket to the White House."
Perryman says he researched American history spanning 1832 to 2002 to arrive at his conclusion that Democrats are not real friends or allies of blacks.

". . . I found two familiar strains running through the cultural development of the American Black: the positive and powerful role of Christianity and the little-known and debilitating role of the Democrats — from slavery through the Clinton administration," he writes.

He also notes current black leaders are also not serving the community well. "These conclusions may not be popular, but they are truthful and, as the Bible says, 'You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.'"

Other black pundits and leaders have also noted that historically, Democrats employ a double standard when it comes to race relations and politics.
Given their history, it is no wonder Democrats continue to devise public policy whose implied message is that blacks are dummies who can't get anywhere unless there's some special program to help them.

Can't resist including this delicious tidbit.:
Perryman argues that Democrats are quick to demand Republicans believed to be guilty of racism apologize, but so far have refused to do so for their party's own racist past.

"The Democratic Party has never offered an apology for their racist legislative practices or their terrorist and lethal tactics—both initiated by members of their party and their Klan supporters," he writes.

Speaking of Lincoln, Perryman also notes that some "key traditional black colleges" — such as Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo., which was founded in 1865 for Abraham Lincoln — are named after noted white Republicans who funded and supported them, even as "Democrats were trying to destroy them."

Perryman notes the nation's premier black civil rights organization — the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) — was "founded and financed by three white persons" who rose up in opposition of the Democrats' "racist practices and the lynchings of blacks."

"History reveals the Republican Party has a far more impressive track record in Civil Rights legislation than the Democratic Party," Perryman says.
All aboard! Ship ahoy! The Grand ship GOP, the U.S.S. Freedom Ticket, has been riding rough waters from its inception. The GOP has fought for freedom and rights for all down through the years; time to board. Time to abandon the rotten and sinking pirate ship of the Donkey Party.

Make sure and read the whole article. If you're black and a citizen, come back to your political roots and vote a straight Republican ticket come November 2.

Heck, if you're a citizen, no need for qualifiers, return to your political roots. Vote the Freedom Ticket headed by Bush-Cheney. Vote GOP on November 2.
