At a newly opened Republican field office in a Detroit Neighborhood, Rand Paul made a speech that didn’t speak very highly of the Grand Old Party. When speaking of the efforts that the Republican Party has made regarding the black community, Rand Paul said,
Remember Domino’s Pizza? … They admitted, “Hey, our pizza crust sucks.” … The objective facts are: What has been happening, what we’ve been trying, hasn’t worked. The Republican Party brand sucks and so people don’t want to be a Republican, and for 80 years, African-Americans have had nothing to do with Republicans.
He continued by saying;
Why? Because of a perception. The problem is the perception is that no one in the Republican Party cares … We’re also fighting 40 years of us doing a crappy job, of Republicans not trying at all for 40 years, so it’s a lot of overcoming … You got to show up, you got to have something to say and really we just have to emphasize that we’re trying to do something different.
Rand Paul has a point when it comes to the point that the Republican Party “Sucks”. There is no doubt that the Republican Party has been on a downward spiral to the depths of “loserville” for quite some time now. Look at who the party supported as their man in recent years. There was John McCain, an old man who tried to run off of the fact that he was a war hero. Although his service is to be commended, he is just a glorified, decorated liberal. Then the party got behind Mitt Romney, who couldn’t campaign his way out of a paper bag. The economy is a top issue, but someone should have clued him in that it’s not the only issue.
The conservative base didn’t turn out, costing the GOP big time. Now that the midterm elections are almost here, the focus will then turn to 2016. Have the Republicans learned their lesson? The answer in the magic eight ball window would read “prediction doesn’t look good”!
Rumors have already begun to swirl about who the nominee will be. Names such as Chris Christie and Jeb Bush have begun to rear their ugly heads. If Chris Christie became President, America may end up with gun control and more Muslim extremists in the U.S. government. Jeb Bush is also “moving forward” with a possible run for the big white house. What can you say about the common core lover? No, just no.
There are many reasons for the demise of the once vibrant and winnable party. They have become a gang of ego-driven establishment hacks. Backing the “it’s my turn” to run good old boys, who have abandoned the platform of the party. The GOP no longer works for the people, but for their own selfish gains. Instead of being the party of ideas, they have become the party of no ideas. They have strayed so far from conservative principals that they look more like liberals every single day.
Our Founding Fathers and Ronald Reagan would be disgusted!
When the country has been faced with some of the most life altering and history changing events of our lifetime such as wide open borders, killer diseases, an economy on the brink of collapse, the complete destruction of our healthcare system, the lack of welfare reform, and the biggest government expansion, it seems, in history, where have Republican elected officials been? The silence has been deafening.
As far as the Republican Party being responsible for not being able to secure the black vote, the onus doesn’t fall entirely on them. For decades the black community has been brainwashed into believing that it’s better being on welfare than it is to be independent and that they couldn’t rise up.
The Democrats have counted on the black community relying on the welfare state as a means of survival. The Jessie Jacksons and Al Sharptons have been false prophets using the black community as their pawns. If a percentage of black voters that were on welfare rose up and actually wanted more for themselves, the Democrats and the vultures like Jackson would cease to exist.
Here is a golden opportunity that the Republicans could capitalize on. Showing up in lower income communities and teaching people that you can in fact rise up and have a better life. That through hard work and perseverance you can achieve your dreams.
Actress Stacey Dash recently appeared on Fox News regarding the minority community in Louisiana. Sean Hannity posed the question, “Has voting with Obama 95% of the time and Obamacare, has that helped the minority community in Louisiana?” Dash was quick to respond saying, “No, not at all. It still keeps them stuck. They’re getting money for free. They feel worthless. They’re uneducated. I mean, as long as you are that way, they can keep you under their control …They have a plantation mentality,” Dash said. “As long as they give you this much money, you’ll stay right there. You don’t need to know too much because if you do, you might start thinking for yourself.”
The un-relatable GOP has got their work cut out for them if they want to start winning elections again. With the black community and young voters being a salty spot for them, it’s time to get back to “old school” principals and ideals and check the ego at the door.
