Deroy Murdock Sees GOP As Black Friendly

Of course Deroy Murdock is black and he recognizes what Ol' BC has been saying for years now. He sees that taxes have gone down every year Dubya has been in office. He realizes that Bush's black vote increased twenty-two percent in 2004 from 2000. He notices that unemployment is at its lowest level since 2001. He sees that blacks have closed the unemployment gap to 4.8 percent under Bush from 5.5 percent under Clinton. "So Bush's tax cuts have have helped create the best black unemployment picture in a generation." But that isn't all. Ol' BC looked for this column on the web and came up empty, but it is in the local paper. Here's another huge point that I've harped about for years now. Socialist Security.

On Social Security, Bush tried to bridge The Dividend Divide, the nearly
11-1 asset-ownership gap between white and black households. Voluntary
Personal Retirement Accounts would let black individuals and families build nest
eggs and bequeath them to their loved ones. This is excellent for black
males who, on the average, die at age 67.8 after collecting from Social Security
for less than a year, while average white males enjoy seven years of
benefits. Bush's proposed accounts offered an alternative to this mess,
but the Democrats wailed, and his plan died.

Now, the GOP has prominent candidates, who happen to be black, running for office in Ohio, Michigan, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Ol' BC sees blacks who work for a living seeing the light. They are seeing that the liberals and the Democrats only want to give them a little here and there to keep the votes coming in, but don't really have any interest in providing black Americans with opportunity. They definitely don't want to see blacks amass any wealth as their voting records confirm. They want to keep the power and keep the working poor and lower middle class right where they are. Black GOP candidates have a great opportunity here.

Just an observation.

I wonder what this great employment boom really means. I mean, anyone can find a job if he wants to make $7.00 an hour, but who can live on it? I really detest statistics and numbers like this. Sure, employment has doubled! they might say, but what they don't tell you is that it doubled from one guy to two, you know?

It's still a fact that things are better for everyone, including blacks, when taxes are cut and people can use their money as they see fit.

You are right for the most part, Rocker. Still, you do not address my concern. Perhaps you have a thought about what I actually said and not how your tangential opinions apply to it?
