    Meanwhile, nice vid. I hope many get a chance to watch it.

    Meanwhile we have this man, who also says stuff on videos. Perhaps some might hear / watch what he has to say ...

    Shame that many cannot see that solutions can only be found in taking an approach that embraces the best of both partys versus the typical us against them. You seem to be an us against them. May I suggest that is being part of the problem.

    you came to and stay in power by getting people hooked and dependent on government like a pusher does with his drugs and then vilify anyone who says that these programs don't help they enslave
    You create a bogey man that doesn't exist. then say if you don't keep us in power there will be no one to protect you from that bogey man. now here is some more government money give us your vote

    Do that math. Votes for Obama - People on Public Assistance. Let me know what you come up with, since you postulate that we (Dems) buy votes with handouts.

    Separate what you know from what you think, if you will.

    Be happy to; and I have. I dated for a time a Ghanan woman, first child of a chief (8-figure wealth, inherited by her) who copped a bit of attitude about Afro-Americans (children of slaves her antecedents sold to white slavers). And I not only scolded her for her bigotry but also schooled her on actual issues minorities face in America, which her birthright and elite class African accent insulated her from. And thus, it was a short-lived relationship. Slightly over a year.

    I've embraced everything the GOP supports that I agree with, such as the top tax rate during the bulk of Reagan presidency: 50%

    I'm pro nuclear energy, and the GOP is more so than the Dems.

    I think the Green Initiative is best funded by VCs and not government subsidies, as many in the GOP suggest.

    I'm pro small business as the GOP often says they are, but not in agreement with their approach from the supply-side, and not the demand-side.

    Just a few.

    Anything on the Dem side you agree with, in whole or in part?

    What's not common knowledge (apparently) are the causes of these things.

    Blacks are disproportionately poor, to be sure, and keeping them that way benefits the Democrats.

    Why? Which have higher voter turnout rates: poor Blacks or middle class Blacks? (tip: the latter)
