The last I checked, and I do it quite frequently, there is not one person that is a greater recipient of Government goodies when they pay more in taxes. It seems to me that the family of 4 that makes $200,000.00 pays more in taxes than the family of 4 that makes $50,000.00 pays in taxes.
Since the family of 4 pays a higher percentage of their income, and their income is higher, should they not get “their fair share” from the government? Both families drive the same roads. Both families use the same hospitals. Both families pay the same amount of taxes on the groceries that they buy. Why would you not expect the one that pays more into the “Great and Powerful Government” get more from the “Great and Powerful Government”?
Somehow, it never seems to work that way! The more you work, the more you pay, the less the “Great and Powerful Government” gives you back. Seems kinda bass ackwards if you were to ask me.
Black, white, yellow, brown or red…you can malign him all you want for…oh I don’t know, maybe cheating on his wife, being a Baptist Deacon, being a member of the Tea Party, fixing the worst division of Burger King, Bringing Godfather Pizza back from the depths of despair or the worst possible thing to call a “Strong Black Man in America” a Republican! You know who I am talking about. You know his name. Mr. 999! Mr. everybody needs skin in the game. When Herman Cain through his hat in the ring I was for this man. The same as when Alan Keyes ran for the same office. Just as I believe that Dr. Carson would make a good candidate. But, to paraphrase Alan West, the liberals hate a strong, black, colorblind, conservative Republican.
I lived in New York when Tawana Brawley started her great lie and The ‘reverend’ (on purpose) al sharpton, C. Vernon Mason and Mr. Mattox all stormed to her side. Not because she was telling the truth but because they could make money in creating another divide between the races. This is the practice of liberals, bar color. This is a practice that most Conservatives do not engage in. The difference is most people do not know or understand what Winston Churchill meant when he said “a lie will get half way around the world before the truth even has a chance to get it’s pants on”
So the next time you hear a ‘Conservative Black Man or Woman” speak, close your eyes and open your brain and listen to them. You may find that they are the ones telling you the truth, like it or not, and they are not the uncle toms of the world. They are not sellouts. They are not the enemy. They are giving you a perspective that existed when they were young, when both parents were in the house, when (forget the color barrier for one moment) we excelled as a Nation.
Let us, as a Nation, get back soon, before we parish.
