Listen to him to understand why a conservative black leaves the Democratic Party.
He called the Democrats the party of disappointment and expressed disillusionment with Democratic policies on abortion, gun control, education, and immigration.
Democrats have moved away from the traditional values of most Americans, he said.Their policies have encouraged high teen birth rates, high high school drop-out rates, high incarceration rates, and very high unemployment rates.
Or listen to now-Republican councilman Washington:
the value system I was raised up with, it really doesnt side with the Democrats...Some of the things I see happening today, with the entitlement programs, we have to change. We cant continue doing the things we are doing and survive.
Everyone understands that black American history is unique and complicated.
But wallowing in the past is never an answer to anyones personal challenges.
The challenge is clarifying right from wrong and acting accordingly moving forward.
It has always seemed pretty clear to me that traditional values and personal freedom and responsibility must be the agenda moving forward for every American of every background.
Black Americans, like every American, need less taxes taken out of their paychecks, need to be able to choose where to send their children to school, need to be able to pick freely a health care plan that suits their needs, and need to save for retirement instead of paying payroll taxes.
You cant sum it up any better than what Elbert Guillary and Ralph Washington have said. There are many, many Guillarys and Washingtons out there in black America.
