Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, formerly a Democrat, recently -and enthusiastically-joined the Republican party.

This man made a wonderful speech sometime recently and I saw it yesterday on You Tube.

Will someone of you bloggers please post the video on this site if possible.

He makes the point that the liberals disguise control as charity.

He claimed that entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to "lift black Americans out of poverty," but rather to control them.

That statement brings to mind what LBJ said on the airplane about the blacks about the time of the launching of the Great Society.

The video is on You Tube and it is titled, "Why I Am a Republican."

Soooo What is the intent of entitlment programs for ethnicities other than black? One of the weaker party lines I have heard in a while. Poverty and hunger does not discriminate; the effects are the same regardless of ethnicity.

JimmyMack, HMJC and sebekm thank you each for your comments.

I just watched the video again and must say it is a very good speech.

As far as Guillory being simply a zig zaging opportunist that may be but I don't think so.

Someone once said a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of a small mind.

A wise man will change his mind when he gets the whole picture.

To answer your question regarding the racial makeup of welfare recipients, it is as follows: blacks 33.3 percent, whites 31.2 percent, Hispanics 28.8 percent, Asians 2.1 percent and American Indians 1.3 percent.

Shame Seb. Nixon wasn't impeached. He was going to be and so he resigned and Ford pardoned him, which cause a lot of backlash for Ford. Only two presidents have been impeached, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

I am just old enough to remember when welfare was still something new and people who were in need were embarrassed by the fact.

There was a degree of shame because of pride.

Now we've got young adults who were born into "the projects" and have grown up there. Many of them remain there for their entire lives.

They become slaves to the plantation and are a drain on society.

We have simply got to return to some kind of program which offers a hand up instead of a handout.
