I don’t know how many times I’ve read, or heard Democrats lecture the American people on voting against their interest. They proclaim allegiance to their party is the pathway to prosperity while denigrating those who’ve achieved success without help from a crony in government.
These self-proclaimed advocates for the little guy have targeted minorities as their vehicle to power. Generations have been ground into poverty and dependence by a parasitic class of politicians and their enablers in the media. Is being a beggar the self-interest so lauded by the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? Is welfare their version of prosperity?
When slavery was banned in the South after the Civil War, an educated class of blacks looked warily upon promises from the government. They understood that with freedom comes responsibility. Reverend J.C. Price, an esteemed educator and founder of Livingstone College in Salisbury, knew that all too well. Here is an excerpt from A History of African Americans in North Carolina:
From the end of his training in theology to his premature death, from kidney disease, in 1883, Price adhered to a coherent set of ideas about education, uplift, and equality. “The American Negro has a peculiar work,” Price declared in an oration on his commencement day, 1881. “Our mission here is providential and peculiar…the carrying out of a divine plan,” he said. As Price looked to the future, he believed that “The Negro himself … is to solve his own problem” through moral and material progress founded upon character and education. Inner strength would be the foundation for social progress.
Emancipation by itself, Price argued, could not give black people equality, for the evil heritage of slavery still worked against them. “We are insulted,” he declared, “not because we are black or colored, but because we belonged to [an] enslaved race,” and he frankly acknowledged that slavery’s “influence still lives in the democratic party.” To gain “the full stature of an American citizen,” he noted, “The 14th and 15th amendments and the Constitution itself have not done it. The solution must come through the gradual, but thorough development of his [the Negro’s] mental and moral nature.” In accord with these beliefs, Price dedicated himself unreservedly to “the Christian enlightenment of a race whose future will determine to a great extent the weal or woe of the republic.”
This faith in the capacity of black Americans to secure their rights through moral, educational, and social progress did not prevent Price from denouncing discrimination. When white southerners urged the nation to leave the fate of the Negro in their hands, Price answered that the Negro was “willing and ready to live in peace with white brethren under any conditions save those which violate the very essence of his being and imply the surrender of his manhood and God-given rights.” Compromise was possible, he continued, but any “compromise that reverses the Declaration of Independence, nullifies the national constitution, and is contrary to the genius of the republic, ought not to be asked of any race living under the stars and stripes; and if asked, ought never to be granted.” Countering whose propaganda about the political power of blacks, Price asserted that “The Negro is not seeking supremacy through the ballot, he is not after power, but protection - not control but rights.” And he flatly denied that “to give the Negro a free ballot where he is the majority, means mismanagement and financial ruin to the country or district in which he resides.”
The Democratic Party has reversed the Declaration of Independence and nullified the national constitution. Their governance is contrary to the genius of the republic.
Today’s democrats demand the people of the United States hand over their fate to a cabal of schemers because we have no God-given rights they deem respectable. Government of the Democrats, by the Democrats and for the Democrats shall look over our interest.
