We share with you one of our favorite writer's analysis of the November 2 election.
She is Star Parker, CEO of the Coalition for Urban Renewal and Education. Here's her analysis:
Almost two years ago, a new Democrat administration and congress took control of Washington.
They immediately sent out invitations to the American people.
"You are cordially invited onto the government plantation. P.S. We're in charge but you pick up the tab. RSVP by November 2, 2010."
The RSVP's have poured in and the majority of Americans have replied "Sorry, we've got other plans."
But it was mostly white voters who turned down this invitation.
Why are blacks, who know life on the government plantation better than whites, and who are proportionately being hit much harder in this difficult economy, still buying what working class whites have rejected hands down? That, as Karl Rove put it, "…we can spend our way to prosperity?"
The problem is broader and deeper. Blacks still by and large see government dependence as the remedy rather than the disease, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. They still choose to listen to left wing black political leadership and media who have careers in keeping it all going.
Consider that it was welfare state government policies that caused this economic collapse to begin with. And that it was community activist groups claiming to represent the interests of minorities who lobbied for these policies.
