The Winds of Change

Fred Thompson,John McCain,Mitt Romney,and Rudy Giuliani have all decided that black voters in America are of absolutely no importance to them. Well. . .they didn't come right out and say that, but all four of them have announced that they are shunning an upcoming debate at the historically black Morgan State University in Baltimore. Their four empty lecterns will send a silent message of contempt while the five remaining Republican contenders at least pretend to care about the concerns of black students.

Earlier this summer, every Republican presidential candidate except for McCain turned down invitations to participate in a debate sponsored by Spanish-language network Univision. Apparently the Latino vote holds even a lesser value than the black vote for this crowded field of old white men who profess to be the defenders of "family values" while covering up hypocritical indiscretions by the Tom Foleys and Larry Craigs of the party of Grand Old Perverts.

So, in summary, the Republican presidential candidates:

  • Dislike blacks so much that they won't even listen to their concerns.
  • Dislike hispanics to an even greater degree.
  • Vote against GLBT issues by day, yet pursue their lifestyle by night.
I recently read an article regarding how these neo-conservative "faux-Christians" were encouraging mass reproduction among their flocks in an attempt to overwhelm America by sheer numbers. Breed a huge amount of kids, sent them off to Jesus Camp, mobilize the mighty Christian White Chosen People Party to take back America. . .to the 1950's! When "Daddy" ruled the roost, "Mommy" served as "slave to her man and children", and all disfunctions were hidden behind a charade carried on for the benefit of the neighbors and the rest of the outside world. "Happy Days" weren't, in general, and "Father Knows Best" was from Dad's perspective only!

Alas, I am digressing once more as I am wont to do when the discussion turns to the paper tigers of the "family values" crowd. I work for a living - so does my wife. I bring home more money - she pays for our health insurance and covers our taxes. It's a partnership - we both contribute equally. We're neither the richest nor the poorest family in our neighborhood - we live fairly well, but still have our struggles. That's where MOST of America IS. . .or at least where it WAS before the middle class began disappearing under the tenure of "old white men who know what's best for us". . .

Would I like to earn enough money for one of us to stay home? HELL yeah! I'll even volunteer to be the one to stay at home and maintain the household; who wouldn't? For most of us, those days are long gone by. . .I'm satisfied by being able to put in my 10 hour day and still come home to cook a meal for my family, or do the laundry, or fall asleep at the computer after all of the above and wake up thinking "I need to get my ass to bed, and WHEN did I fall asleep anyway?".

Anyway - Getting back to my original point. . .these GOP "Pretenders to the Throne" would do well to pay attention to the growing consensus of statistics that point to their "old white guy" slice of the pie as being in the minority in the very near future. The world has moved on, yet these candidates remain stuck in another time period. Good luck, boys. You'll need it later, if not sooner. . .
