Welcome Mr. Guillory to the GOP!

During a press conference at the end of May, Louisiana state senator Elbert Guillory decided enough was enough and changed parties – from Democrat to Republican.

Now party jumping isn’t exactly new – it happens frequently.  But the causes of this switch are what is interesting – racism among the Democrat Party.  Mr. Guillory became a Democrat in 2007 but after continuously hearing all of the lame excuses about the primary reasons why ObamaCare isn’t being embraced by the population: because Obama is black.  Yeah, I agree Mr. Guillory, that’s quite lame.

Mr. Guillory had these other comments that make one wonder if history is even taught in public school.

“In recent history, the Democratic Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow, it has been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed – that slavery is a violation of the rights of man,”

“Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow. It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”

“At the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity.”

It’s a startling omission how so many people today believe that the Democrat party is the party of civil rights when they, themselves, filibustered the bills that came through Congress to give blacks equal rights.  I kind of wonder if blacks today have, in fact, given up their hard earned freedoms and liberties in exchange for government subsidy.

This opens a wider angle here – the one that demonstrates that freedom cannot be achieved through dependency and entitlement.  We sacrifice our freedom and liberty to make our own way in the world when we call upon government to rescue us from the difficulties of life, rather than calling out to God in Heaven who is the benefactor of all good things.

Today, the black community is walking itself into slavery again – this time, being enslaved by government entitlement that keeps them from the drive that pushes people to overcome.  The Democrats weep alligator tears when they see people starve.  Conservatives weep when we see people lose their freedom for a handout.

The rigors of life are the mountain that gives us accomplishment, growth, strength, and courage.  When we constantly carry a child around, we deprive them of the drive to stand on their own feet and learn to walk.  Growth and maturity come from adversity, and the determination to overcome that adversity and not bathe in complacency.

My daughter said to me this morning, “Dad, I am having a hard time finding ways to earn money”, after asking me to buy her a notebook for her art.  I told her she would have to pay me back for it, not because of my greed or “frugality”, but I want her to begin to understand that it’s okay to want things – but we must work for them.  If we just get them without effort, we don’t treasure them as much.

Democrats and liberals out there, what is your freedom worth to you?  Are you so hell-bent on a over-controlling government that you are willing to sacrifice freedom to get it?   Seriously.

Here’s Mr. Guillory’s video for you to enjoy.
