    well, you tell me. which party is advocating welfare and education reform measures that would help our disproportionately poor minority populations raise themselves up, and which party is beholden to public unions and 1970-style-giveaway programs?

    Black Voters Strong Supporters of Governor Chris Christie's Charter School Program

    67% of African American and 60% of Hispanic Americans support Education Vouchers for Low-Income Families

    Welfare Reform lifted 1.6 Million children out of poverty and led to the lowest rates of single-parent child poverty in American history

    Republicans in Indiana extend HSA's to all making below 200% of the poverty level, allowing them to access health while building wealth

    Conservatives are choc-a-bloc with ideas on how to refine our entitlement systems in order to provide more to our lower-income populations

    The GOP is pushing a plan to introduce means-testing to more government programs to ensure that even in the face of cuts, we are taking better care of our poor


    and so on etc. and so forth. Conservatives have plenty of ideas that would benefit women and minorities. It's just that we do so in the context of benefiting Americans, rather than taking from one identity group to give to another.

    To one degree or another - we are all brainwashed about something.

    so, you remain silent when the observation is made that blacks do not tend to vote republican

    but when asked why blacks should vote republican, you object to the association of skin color/ethnicity/race when examining who votes republican and why

    my speculation is that you cannot answer my previous question and thus want to divert the conversation away from it. the answer might be embarrassing for those staunch stalwarts of the present republican party

    as you can see, i disagree with your assertion that an examination of voting trends based on race would be an unprincipled undertaking. it is an examination republicans should rightfully consider if they do not want my grandchild to one day ask 'granddad, what was a republican?'

    Hatred? I don't understand how you can come to that conclusion.

    How are black men, christian conservatives and environmentalists "insulated" as entire groups?

    I wouldn't call it hatred. I think that's a different beast. What I see is hypocrisy, arrogance and lack of self-awareness. Hypocrisy in the sense those who claim to value the individual and choice believe that those who choose differently than them have chosen the wrong way or haven't chosen at all meaning that they only believe there is one "right" answer to politics. Arrogance in the sense that the people in question believe that they know what is best for black Americans and should, in turn, decide which political persuasion is right for them. Lack of self-awareness in the sense that they believe black Americans lean liberal because they are "brainwashed" while ignoring that the conservatives in question accusations that many black Americans are "brainwashed, lazy, uncaring about their community" and a host of other things that might have an impact on which party they choose to vote for.

    you object to the word 'hatred' as over the top but then speak to us of ENSLAVING blacks
    absurd
    but indicative of the reason why black voters run from your party and those who populate it
