The African-American Vote
I have often wondered how the Democrats got the African-American block to begin with. It was a Republican who emancipated the slaves, and it was Dwight Eisenhower who integrated the Little Rock, Arkansas schools in the late 1950s. True, Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights act but he did it by steamrolling over the congressional democrats. This is not to say Republican hands were perfectly clean but the were a hell of a lot cleaner than the Democrats.
After Johnson signed the Civil Rights act, the Democrats somehow convinced Afro-Americans that they were the downtrodden masses and promised to fix their situation with the "Great Society". Afro-Americans bought into this en masse and billions of tax dollars were poured into welfare programs that kept Afro-Americans at the very margins of society. Dependent upon a welfare system that instead of lifting them out of poverty as promised only served to make them even more dependent on the welfare system. Afro-Americans migrated to the Democratic Party which has promised them everything but delivered little more than maintaining them at the poverty level.
The "Great Society" welfare system set up rules that encouraged people to not get a job because they would lose the welefare benifits. It also made it more financially attractive to have more children so more welfare money would be given to support the child. The "Great Society" even made it finacially better to be a single parent than a two parent household with it's aid to dependent children program.
The Democratic party, in my opinion, did more harm to African-Americans than anything other than slavery. They made them virtual slaves to the Democratic party.
I think we will see a huge change in the party affiliations of African-Americans. Maybe not immediately, but within the next 3 election cycles. In short, Bill and Hilliary have crapped in the Democrtatic Party's hat.
