Back in 1865 President Lincoln (R), and a Republican House rammed through the 13th Amendment, eliminating slavery. The Democrats in the House fought it vigorously. In 1965 the Republican Congress caused passage of the Civil Rights Act. Many Democrats opposed it.
Today we have Economic Slavery and Learned Helplessness, again foisted upon many Americans, of all colors. All of these give-a-way programs are intended to enslave those receiving them and cause them to have to vote for Democrats to keep the free stuff coming.
Over generations of welfare, the offspring learn how to be helpless, totally dependent on government for their very existence, and are obliged to vote for Democrats in order to keep the free stuff flowing. In recent years, more and more welfare recipients, higher and higher unemployment, and no help in sight. And yet students and black Americans vote overwhelmingly for Economic Slavery and Learned Helplessness.
And where are the Republicans? Nowhere in sight. They won’t stand up for individual freedom, and won’t fight to end the welfare state and get people back to work.
And that light at the end of the tunnel? It may well be a freight train of social welfare goodies.
