Hogwash!This collection of "stuff" from liberal advocacy
groups proves nothing and proposes repeating failed programs.It it
true there is a measurable achievement gap between racial demographics, which
can be defined as "equity." However, this is not caused by deliberate
policies, or some evil plot. It is the result of years of failed liberal
programs which essentially keep minorities on the "liberal welfare
plantation" where they are indoctrinated by government programs that their
situation is always someone else's fault, and that more government programs
will "get even with the rich with guys" which is explained as a way to
make things better for the minorities.In reality, the poverty and
lack of upward mobility come from the liberal welfare policies, which have
destroyed the basic family unit, the concept of marriage, devalued education;
destroyed motivation for betterment through hard work, and denigrated religion.
They have vilified as "Uncle Toms or Oreos" any minorities who do escape
from the welfare plantation through their own hard work.Proof of
this is that many whites living the welfare lifestyle suffer equally, while
minorities who reject liberal policies have advanced to lives of success.
Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson exemplify this.
The biggest fiscal issue we face as a nation is that we do not create tax payers
as fast as we create tax takers. It only makes sense that anyone who wants to
learn to own and operate his own business is trained to do so correctly. That
means education and a good one. Real conservatives should be supporting
immigrant education given they are not spoiled by all the give away programs we
have - at least not yet. Conservatism means preserving the things in our nation
that work and fixing or dropping the ones that do not. It also means that people
become self reliant. There is no better way of doing that than through a good
education education or job training.
