Blacks Will be Hurt the Most by Election Results

One again, Blacks voted for Obama in “mass quantities.” Some put the number at 95 percent, although I’ve seen a number around 92 percent. The Black vote in the Philadelphia wards was off the charts. One article carried this headline, “Vote was astronomical for Obama in some Philadelphia wards,” even though another article reported in September of this year that "[p]overty rose significantly in Philadelphia and its surrounding counties over the last two years, while the city's median household income in 2011 ranked second-worst among the nation's 25 largest cities."

These areas are deeply affected by policies that are championed by the Democrats. Have the majority of blacks benefited by decades of calls for more poverty programs and and wealth transfer incentives? When you have time, read the article “Philadelphia’s Poverty Problem” that was published online in PhillyMag in 2010. It's heart wrenching:

More than a third of the city’s kids don’t graduate from high school . . . . Sixty percent of the city’s children are born out of wedlock. A third grow up in poverty. Philadelphia, recent stats say, is America’s poorest big city.

Which hurts all of us. Consider the problems just on a practical level: It’s tough to attract new business to the city when so much of it is dangerous, when we lack an educated workforce. We lose out on tax revenue. We end up spending more — billions more — on prisons and services trying to resurrect our poorest people than we would in tackling some of their problems head-on.

No doubt some Blacks break free from the conditions that they were born into, as the above article points out. They beat some very bad odds, but they are expected to stay with the liberal insistence that a strong central government managed by caring political party is their way out of poverty, and woe to any “minority” who says otherwise. Black and Brown people who support Republicans are said to be “window dressing.” Remember how Stacey Dash was savaged by blacks for her support of Mitt Romney? Consider these comments by Joy-Ann Reid, an on-air contributor at MSNBC:

They just think they need to put more window dressing on it, and find some more black and brown people to say the exact same things they believe. They don't believe they need to change their positions on issues. They just believe they need to change the decoration.

Of course, Blacks aren’t the only ones who have travel "the road to serfdom.” There are a lot of poor Whites who are content to take confiscated money from taxpayers in the name of “fairness” or some contrived “social justice” narrative. Some people are content to go through life as wards of the State and they vote accordingly.

Conde Pallen’s “utopian” novel Crucible Island depicts what happens when the State takes on the attributes of a benefactor. The devotion to the State is religious. Man looks for a substitute provider so “the individual should have no thought, desire, or object other than the public welfare, of which the State is the creator and the inviolable guardian. As soon as the child is capable of learning, he is taught the Socialist catechism, whose first questions run as follows:

Q. By whom were you begotten?

A. By the sovereign State.

Q. Why were you begotten?

A. That I might know, love, and serve the Sovereign State always.

Q. What is the sovereign State?

A. The sovereign State is humanity in composite and perfect being.

Q. Why is the State supreme?

A. The State is supreme because it is my Creator and Conserver in which I am and move and have my being and without which I am nothing.

Q. What is the individual?

A. The individual is only a part of the whole, and made for the whole, and finds his complete and perfect expression in the sovereign State. Individuals are made for cooperation only, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teeth.[1]

Welcome to Crucible Island. You’re chains are on the table.

    I never would have believed that Obama could win a second term....it is surely a game changer in the USA, and th world. Now I believe Jesus' return is closer than we think!

    In this election, when I find that perhaps 95%
    or more blacks voted for obama, for no other reason than that he is black, I
    must ask, “who now are the real racists in America?” When you enthusiastically support and vote
    for a man who has miserably failed and corrupted everything he has touched
    since becoming president over a man that is more imminent qualified in every
    department, that displays a lifetime of honesty charity and real accomplishment
    and who’s record has benefited perhaps millions, it is pretty safe to conclude
    that it is you that are the real racists in the US. Prove me wrong then! Tell me, what domestic policies of this
    administration showed measured improvement over that of his predecessors, that
    caused you to vote the way you did? How
    many of you useful idiots can honestly look in a mirror and say that my miserable
    life is better than it was four years ago?
    What shameless ignorant racist fools you are! Enjoy the party while you can and continue to
    chant among one another how great socialism is and that you are finally getting
    back at ol’ whitey! You racists so richly
    deserve what is coming, brought on by one of your own and his enablers.

    No matter what after this slap in their face, they just might beaware as to who is really to blame. Can not blame Bush, now for anything. It is all on him (Obama) now. Too bad for the blacks, they are in for a bigger let down than the whites. Oh well, they voted for him. Let see how long it takes for them to wake up.

    • RobertNorwood

      Zombies can't wake up. Zombies are a creation of colored folks - "zombi" but it took whites to elevate them to the status they now enjoy. Obama just keeps blowing zombie dust in their face and they be lovin' it.

  • Keith Breedlove

    To paraphrase the president, "election results are the best revenge." I sure hope that they enjoy life on the plantation, with Massa Barack to look out for their every need.

      It won't last, it never does - that's a well that will always goes dry. 2016 here will make Germany in 1919 look like a good year.

    My Black brothers and sisters just can't connect the dots. They vote for Obama again and what will they get? 4 more years of the same. High unemployment brought on by millions of law breakers who cross the borders to take our jobs. Illegal drugs that come with the illegals and end up in our inner cities to bring more crime and dependency. Obama will continue to support government paid abortions which wilil kill more black babies than the KKK ever did.

    So, you might get a free Obama phone, but 4 years from now, we won't be any better off.

    We only will be led to think so, and we will keep voting for democrat candidates like Obama who makes us feel good because their skin color is a shade darker than the white counterparts and we will end up with more Detroits, Newarks, Chicagos, L.A.s,Clevelands, et al. And of course, we will blame George Bush and Mitt Romney for our plight.

    May these cretin idiots so in love with their Dear Leader reap precisly what they sowed. Too bad that cell phone will run out of juice just around December. What will these oh so gullible clowns do the first time they hit the supermarket and are told that their food stamps are no longer viable. Think they will be up to walking to Washington D.C., finding the golf course their benefactor is on, and beg a little largesse from this consummate liar ? Maybe they can track down Michelle the Moocher at one on the select boutiques on route and
    ask for a bit of that cake she's so fond of thinking they ought to eat.
    Oh well just another day on the Progressive Plantation and as Miz Scarlett was so fond of saying, " tomorrow is another day ", y'all.

    The blacks of America have sold their souls for what their racist leaders like jackson, sharpton, and wright believe whites owe them! their stupidity in accepting a hovel in the hood, free food, welfare, and now things that only working folks should have has effectively made re-run slaves of themselves, dupes for "insults to humanity" like obama!

  • johnhorse

    The Negros or Illegals that voted for ovomit or anyone else that voted for him deserve everything their NOT going to get.Are they really stupid enough to think just because they voted ovomit into a second term their going to be treated different then the rest of the country that didn't vote for ovomit.It is going to be interesting to see the melt down of the morons that voted for ovomit when they get the shaft along with everyone else.When every one is on the good ship united states and it starts to sink and there are NO life boats "Guess What" everyone faces-es the same fate.You ether find a way to save you and your family or go under.Did you understand that the government IS NOT going to lift a finger to help anyone no matter how you voted.Dumbocrap or republican doesn't make a difference to a wannabe dictator.Dictators don't trust anyone not even family and they don't care about the population ether.Guess what citizen your considered the population and YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN so if you voted for ovomit your just as screwed as the rest of the population.
    That is something you didn't consider when you voted for ovomit again,to bad stupid couldn't be fixed."ENJOY"

    They are waiting for their free ObamaFone and Obama Money. They been sitting on the steps just waiting and waiting, Obama is going to help; he said so, right? Proves you can't believe the pathological liar. Go ahead and wait another 4 years, better yet hold your breath and wait. 95% illiterates prove this country is in good hands. If Obama tells you jump off the building I bet you would!

  • gbandy

    The saddest thing is ignorance by many. Take the 10 worst and poorest cities in the US. All with very high black populations and ALL run by Democrats for generations. Now In Wisconsin Scott Walker has done something positive and has created jobs and mostly fought back the Unions control of the State. Now try and convince the Black poor the Democrats are just not their friends and saviours and it is like talking to a brick wall.

    So it is four more years and by 2014 the Tea Party and the old timers who pine for an America that never was will be all in the VA Hospitals, on Medicare and Medicaid and happy that the government is paying the bill. Wake up and give up the demographic fight. It is the future and you fools are fighting history!

    Well Chicken Little, the sky did not fall. The country will
    survive and prosper. For all you who are crying crocodile tears for the
    zillionaires, get over it. For your information, the Koch Brothers, Trump,
    Adelson and their buddies believe in the following: separation of church and
    state, birth control, integration, choice, stem cell research, education and
    sensible immigration. For all of you-over-the hill clowns, it is, and has been,
    minorities and poor people who have done the cut work in this country since
    slaves were brought in from Africa, Chinese came in to do the railroads and the
    Irish, Italians and Jews worked in the factories and the building trades. So
    you flat-earth, white males, who are worried about the end of the Western
    World, please note that your vote for the GOP is for deregulation and low or no
    taxes for the rich. As I have noted, they could care less about your far out conspiracy
    theories, the Moon is not made of green cheese, their family values are not
    yours and they are not worried about the Constitution.

    In fact, it was the Republicans who looked the other way
    when immigrants came across the borders to work for the minimum wage or cash
    for WalMart, big farms, big fast food chains, hospitals and lawn care services.
    These industries were not the province of the Democratic Party.

    As to taxes, you clowns who benefit from the VA, Medicare,
    Medicaid, and deductions for local taxes and mortgage expenses would have had
    that all blown away or privatized so that the rich do not have to pay 3.5% on
    incomes over $250K per year if Romney and his gang had won.

    But, who else are you carrying water for, can I guess? Your
    buddies want to do away with inheritance taxes, environmental regulations and
    turn health care back to the insurance companies who keep on raising premiums,
    deductibles and limit service. The average working person has seen his
    co-premium go to 25%, their deductible to $1000 and the company’s premium to
    $16K. So they owe $5K before their kid gets a booster shot.

    So what have we learned? The public, aside from concerns
    over the economy have voted for president Obama, a Democratic Senate and many
    more votes for Democrats in the House. So come 2014, if your Tea Bag Brigade
    obstructionists, led by Grover Norquist and the Donald don’t wake up, they’ll
    be toast also.

    In truth, the only shot you had was with a rich plutocrat
    like Romney, whose rich friends put up billions. But can you clowns really
    imagine losers like Bachmann, Cain or Perry being the nominee? They couldn’t
    have raised a red cent. How about the religious nut, who brought his dead still
    born child home for the kids? Santorum who was earning $1 million per year from
    the same companies he was carrying water for when he was a Senator? Did you
    know he lost be the largest margin of any incumbent US Senator in history? How about
    Gingrich, that lowlife, whose marriages, affairs and history of gaming the
    system, would have been a field day for the press?

    So it is all over, get used to it. By the way, I assume
    these sites will also disappear as time goes on and no one really cares about
    the silliness that is fomented here.

    The unfortunate part is, that most of them don't care as long as the next check rolls in on time.

    Sknner box experiments in the 70's showed that given the choice of two levers- one that delivered drugs, and one that delivered food, the monkey would choose the drug lever every time. In fact, he would continue to push it over and over to see if he could get more. Well, we've created the perfect skinner box in the form of a voting booth.
    This points out a difficutly in the electoral college. As the people who want more in life move away from those areas which suffer liberal control, it becomes harder to actually win an election. I mean if ALL of the conservaties move to a handful of states, then those that are left control the election. America has reached that tipping point. This is similar to the flight of logical people from South Africa over the past 20 years. It woul dnow be impossible for a white person to be elected in South Africa, even if that person were better for those who live there.

    @ Kevin Ryan: I've never had a problem with those who come legally and seek to assimilate to the American culture as those have done; most of those around here aren't really thrilled with the illegals either, in fact; at least from the reactions I hear...

    Anyone want to bet that the unemployment rate will
    not be above 10% within six months? Not even counting the layoffs that
    Obamacare will cause just the military industry layoffs should bring it up to
    that. There were already $487
    billion in cuts scheduled or 9% of the military budget over the next ten years.
    When Congress passed the Budget Control Act of 2011 it raised the
    nation's debt ceiling but called for sequestration - automatic,
    across-the-board cuts to defense of an additional $500 billion over the next 10
    years. That would bring the total amount cut in the next ten years to $987
    billion or 18% of the current military budget.
    Guess how many jobs that will cost?
