Black Louisiana State Senator: I'm Now a Republican Because the Democrat Party is The Party of "Overseers"Submitted by Kathleen Gee on Tue, 06/18/2013 - 18:31
This is one of the most powerful statements I have ever heard. It is a must-watch, must-forward.
State Senator Elbert Guillory recently switched from Democrat to Republican. He created a video to explain his switch. It's incredibly moving.
“In recent history, the Democratic Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow, it has been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed – that slavery is a violation of the rights of man,” he said.
He noted it was Republicans who pushed for the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments, giving blacks citizenship, voting rights and due process.
“Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow. It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”
He warned that the very foundations of the Democratic Party are faulty.
“At the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity.”
