For approximately 100 years, we the people have been asking the wrong question. The question we asked was: Why can't the government do something about _____________(fill in the blank)? The question we should have asked was: Why SHOULD the government do something about ______?
Progressive policies over the last 40+ years, have been more destructive to my black brethren then you can imagine. Facts, the number of unwed black mothers, the number of young blacks who are unemployed. The number of black kids who are not successful in school, not because of a lack of intelligence, but because of a bogus sociological assumption that they should be dependent upon government. I've had young men and women who happened to be black who did succeed because they rejected that assumption. They had a dream and they reached for it.

Obama’s Fake Fairness Fairy

As I told my students in my teaching days, when the subject of fairness came up: "Life is neither fair nor unfair, it is what it is and you deal with it." Another way of putting it is "It's not the hand your dealt, its how you play the cards."
Although all analogies are suspect, I think this one may be true. Amongst lemmings, conservatives are the ones who don't jump because logic trumps social inertia. Then again as I stated before, even this sage comment may be suspect. :)

I think, if you research it, that progressive ideas from both sides of the isle have brought us to this point. Ideas propagated and implemented in various forms over the past 80 years or so. I suspect that when one finds themselves on the wrong road it might be a good idea to retrace the steps taken and get back on the right track.
