To the 10-20 million illegal immigrants now on American soil, the thought of acquiring U.S. citizenship must be the ultimate dream come true. No one can blame them for wanting to be here but being here illegally should not be rewarded. To each and every one of them they must all look at their benefactors in the Democratic Party as being the greatest people on Earth and to reciprocate one good deed for another a debt of honor. Unfortunately, most Americans are not looking at the problem this way. And certainly, most of our Republican leadership isn’t looking at it this way, either. But one group of people are most definitely looking at it that way, the Democrats. They are virtually salivating at the prospect of being the recipients of a debt of honor by 10-20 million grateful new voters. If such a thing should come to pass the Republican Party would become such a political minority that the Democrats would become the guaranteed winners of almost every Congressional election for decades to come.
Now we come to the feckless leadership of the Republican Party. The public image of Speaker of the House John Boehner weeping tells me more about his lack of leadership than anything. Then we have Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, who holds the title of Senate Minority Leader, who has said he will vote to end Cloture so that those who want to bring this issue up for a debate in the Senate can have discussion about it. Rather than stop the issue dead in its tracks by uniting in voting for cloture, a parliamentary move that the minority Republicans can use for their advantage, the wimpish Republicans will try to win some friends and influence some of those 10-20 million new voters who will gain citizenship should amnesty get passed. As a side note, Wikipedia has an interesting definition of the Cloture rule and it is certainly apropos to describe it as a “guillotine” as voting to end it will be the death of us all.
Cloture (/ˈkloʊtʃər/ KLOH-chər) is a motion or process in parliamentary procedure aimed at bringing debate to a quick end. It is also called closure or, informally, a guillotine. The cloture procedure originated in the French National Assembly, from which the name is taken. Clôture is French for “ending” or “conclusion”. It was introduced into the Parliament of the United Kingdom by William Ewart Gladstone to overcome the obstruction of the Irish nationalist party and was made permanent in 1887. It was subsequently adopted by the United States Senate and other legislatures.
The Democrats for decades have turned the majority of our Black population into a single solid voting block of paid followers with their Food Stamps, Welfare, free medical treatment and free cell phones, all of which under some situations could be viewed as bribery or vote buying. But the one thing that the Democrats have never done for the Black population is try to get them off Welfare or out of poverty. And why should they when the recipients of all the free stuff reciprocate by voting for more Democrats who in turn give them more free stuff. Down in Louisiana, a Democratic Party State Senator named Elbert Guillory has just switched over and changed his registration to Republican. That might not have been a significant news story except for the fact that Elbert Guillory is Black and he made a very uncomplimentary statement about his former Democratic Party when he explained why he became a Republican. Now if only the leadership of our Republican Party in Washington could read this and understand it and make some good use of it, we may keep our politics a viable two party system.

‘Free at Last’: La. State Senator Explains Why He Recently Left the ‘Government Plantation’ & Joined GOP in Powerful Video

Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, formerly a Democrat, recently — and enthusiastically — joined the Republican party.
Weeks after announcing his bold move, Guillory has released a video explaining why he is now with the GOP. The powerful video is titled, “Why I Am a Republican.”
Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory Explains Why He Joined GOP
In the video, Guillory says it is the Republican Party that actually has the best interests of the black community in mind. He argues Democrats relentlessly push an agenda intended to exert control over blacks, not lift them out of poverty.
“You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people,” Guillory said. “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.”
The former Democrat explained that Frederick Douglass called Republicans the “party of freedom and progress.” He also pointed out that former Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and Republicans in Congress wrote the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
“The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow,” Guillory added. “It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”
He went on: “You see, 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.”
Watch the video below:
Guillory claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them.
Further, the welfare programs haven’t even helped blacks at all as they are still “as poor as they’ve ever been,” he argued.
“But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness, free from Government dependence, and free from Government control. Because to be truly free, is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny,” Guillory continued, pointing to God. “These are the ideas are at the core of Republican party… My brothers and sisters of the American community, please join me in abandoning the Government plantation and the party of disappointment.”
“So that we may all echo of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last,” he concluded.
Once our history began to be rewritten by the liberal news media and academics a lot of it got turned around and some of it got forgotten. Like the little fact that it was members of the Democratic Party who promoted Jim Crow in the South and were the founders of the Klu Klux Klan to keep the blacks under control. Or that Margaret Sanger, who was the founder of Planned Parenthood, believed that lighter-skinned races were superior to darker-skinned races, and admitted to speaking at KKK rallies, was an advocate of eugenics.
As Wikipedia mentions:
As part of her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.” Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics, which aims to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by reducing reproduction by those considered unfit. Sanger’s eugenic policies included an exclusionary immigration policy, free access to birth control methods and full family planning autonomy for the able-minded, and compulsory segregation or sterilization for the profoundly retarded.
So while the Democratic Party is hardly a true friend of the Black population they certainly have no objections to using them. One can imagine how well they will prosper while using the newly minted citizens from Mexico who came here illegally looking for a better life. I have no objections to those illegal immigrants staying here as long as they pay taxes, but I do not want them to be given the right to vote. But if that can’t be done then they should be deported.
