What today's Republicans don't do is tell their story very well. Instead of going into Black Communities with people like Larry Elder, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell by your side and showing people who may have fallen into the trap of believing they "must be dependent" on Government, that there is a better life waiting through opportunity, they just skip it alltogether. That leaves Black Americans to listen to only one voice. That voice tells them their only hope is More Government.

When Republicans do put forth a black conservative that person is savaged by the left. Look at Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas.

The Hummingbird Feeder - Many years ago when I lived in Austin, TX a very Liberal friend of mine put out several Hummingbird Feeders around his house out in the country. The area around his home was mostly Juniper and Mesquite with only a few flowering plants. The Hummingbirds normally just migrated through the area and moved on to more fertile areas for nectar. I warned him not to over feed them because they would become dependent. When he returned home from a two month out of state assignment he found a half dozen dead Hummingbirds on his patio because no one was there to refill the feeders and dependence killed them.

This is exactly what is happening in countries like Greece today and it will happen here once we can no longer afford to "Refill the Feeders" and people's dependence on Big Government has replaced their skills of Self Reliance. Living off the "Crumbs Thrown the Masses" by the Democrats is a dangerous addiction for both those who are Dependent and Those who are Filling the Feeders. Once the Socialist System Breaks Down you have riots in the streets.

It is perfect communism. All the commies have to do now is to eradicate AA's faith in God.

In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: "In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man."

Obama appears to have held on to most of his percentage of the black vote from 2008 -- even though the black unemployment rate in October reached 14.3 percent. Emmanuel Cleaver, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus, admitted: "If (former President)...
