GOP must get its message
out to nonwhite voters

Boston Herald, by Star Parker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/22/2014 4:20:55 PM

It is no accident that rhetoric about race has been ramping up at a time when racial politics can be the key determinant for control of the Senate this year. At least three states that have large black populations — North Carolina, Louisiana, and Arkansas — are red states with vulnerable Democrat senators up for re-election. Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies? A Google search for “racism” will produce a long list of articles from the most recent week’s news claiming racism on issue after issue of national concern. We need to

I love Star.

But I would tell her that the GOP isn´t doing such a bang-up job of getting a message of limited government to any voters, not just non-white ones. It´s entirely a grass-roots message that is bubbling strongly from under but also being actively suppressed from above. Sigh.

The Republicans limit government to a half-step behind the Democrats. In fact, the Democrats just expand the mission of GOP-created departments and agencies. Try the EPA for example, or the Dept of Education. Politics is all about spending money by contracting with friends. What the GOP is not so good at is "burrowing" into the civil service, or running off the Dem leftovers.

I love Star Parker, but it would have been nice if she had offered some solutions other than that the GOP must sell the idea of limited government to nonwhites. It would have been nice to know how she would like to see that happen. Details would have been good. I would like to know how to see that happen and perhaps it is a good idea that the GOP begins thinking about it seriously and coming up with a detailed plan.

I have supported Star´s CURE organization for years. Unfortunately, the GOP I believe it in its current form is a dying party. The leaders all are RINO´s. Who I don´t believe appeal to anyone other than other RINO´s. Conservatism is the key, but many have been brainwashed to hate conservative/tea party. I believe the video online show Deneen Borelli and Rev Curtis treatment by an ignorant closed minded, big mouth open lady at the NAACP yesterday reveals the unreachable goal. Most Blacks aren´t listening now, they aren´t listening still and perhaps they never will...

In defense of the GOP, they tend to believe an
ENGAGED and informed electorate will benefit them and America.
Unfortunately, the DemocRATs have learned that a disengaged and misinformed public ( being dragged to the polls by bribery) makes for them a "better" electorate.
And the country suffers.

The majority of articles claim white on black racism. The rabid, violent and actual racism is black on everybody else who isn´t but that doesn´t make the news at all.

What message would that be? The establishment message---- we´re really good people and our friends are good people and we promise to play nice?

Or perhaps the current GOP message to nonwhites---- those limited government, patriotic, free market racists, don´t vote for them......

Coastal rockfeller republicans don´t connect with non whites, they have nothing to offer. Perhaps someone needs to explain that to Karl.

The whole idea presupposes that blacks have to be spoken to differently than any other Americans. If that is true, then maybe the "racists" were right all along.
That aside, how can the Republicans sell limited government when their behavior over the last decades proves they dont believe in it themselves?

Parker isn´t talking about the low-hanging pants-clad teens on the city corners. She´s also not addressing the Elijah Cummings, Maxine WAters, John Conyers, Al Sharptons of the political world. The first group has no interest beyond self-gratification, the second group has a financial stake in keeping the game going. Parker´s target is the middle-class professional families who are afraid of our intent and what they perceive to be our bias. She´s looking for the moms who are trying to raise good kids in difficult circumstances, the young college students. We have to let them know we want a better country for all of us, freeer, safer, lives with a future. No, I don´t know how to get there, either, but I sure don´t see the harm in trying. Bill Cosby used to talk to those audiences, so did Jesse Jackson when he was younger and less compromised. We ought to be able to address church groups and civic groups and business groups about how to work with us toward a single goal of a more stable nation.

Yes, the GOP should try. Ahem, how many articles have been saying this and for how many election cycles? If the leadership of the Grand Old Party truly wanted to reach out to black voters, folks, they would. Note how clever the strategy, how focused the money distribution and smart the RNC can be when it wants to go to war to prevent the election of a powerful conservative. Here is the 1 thing the Republican Party could have been doing if they TRULY wanted to reach nonwhite voters - SUPPORT black conservatives and nonwhites who are being persecuted by liberals of their race. Did we ever see any of the Bushes stand up for or endorse Col. Allen West? Do we see Mia Love purposely, continually complimented or mentioned by top Republicans? Did we see President Bush come out on camera himself to immediately respond to the filthy racist cartoon of his black woman Sec of State (historically the FIRST) characterized as a parrot with exaggerated negroid features? We never see strong responses by the party, or a Republican White House when Justice Clarence Thomas has been systematically excoriated and insulted in the most demeaning ways for two decades. This stuff is WHY nonwhites are not eager to join or, good grief, desire to run for office as a Republican. Young, nonwhite, smart conservatives have been noticing all of it for years. This must change and THEN they will be more convinced that the GOP is worth their time.

Contradicting comments from his top military advisers, President Obama told U.S. troops Wednesday that American forces “do not and will not have a combat mission” in the campaign to defeat Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq. “As your commander in chief, I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq,” Mr. Obama told troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, home of the U.S. Central Command.

Earlier this summer, I managed to perplex, perhaps even offend, a famous TV interviewer when I declared I wanted a federal government that followed the U.S. Constitution. Seemingly aghast, the interviewer went so far as to suggest my position was a “highly charged thing to say.” Imagine that. A journalist who, owing to the Constitution, has the right to report freely and to speak freely, being uncomfortable to hear a fellow American swear allegiance to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers’ vision of a limited central government.

Although state polling shows the GOP slipping some in the Republican quest to win the U.S. Senate, a New York Times/CBS News poll reveals that President Obama is polling worse than George W. Bush on issues important to voters, while the GOP is gaining strength. On the question of overall job approval, Obama has tied his all time low of just 40%, with 50% disapproving. On the issue of foreign policy, Obama has hit an all-time low of 34%, with 58% disapproving. At this same time in his presidency, President Bush sat at a little better 37% approve, 56% disapprove.

The New York Times has lost faith in President Barack Obama‘s pledge to avoid committing ground troop to the ISIS fight in Syria and Iraq. When Obama gave a speech last week that laid out his plan to combat ISIS, an Islamic terrorist network, he said the U.S. would engage in military airstrikes but would not be utilizing its own ground troops. That policy seemed to reverse on Tuesday, however, when Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey said there could be scenarios where ground troops would be necessary. The White House then tried turning that back around, saying

Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and the Benghazi Select Committee (worst Fleetwood Mac cover band ever) will officially convene Wednesday morning.The committee, featuring seven Republicans and five Democrats, is another congressional investigation into the events surrounding the attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. Previous congressional investigations, including one just wrapped up last month, have not yielded any smoking guns against the Obama administration. But Gowdy’s investigation is expected to last well into 2015 or beyond, potentially complicating a presidential run by Hillary Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the attacks occurred.

The unveiling of President Obama’s new plan to contain the Ebola virus did little to appease critics who questioned the White House’s commitment to halting an epidemic with wide-ranging national security consequences. After weeks of prodding from African nations, the president on Tuesday used a trip to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to announce a blueprint to send up to 3,000 military personnel to West Africa, part of an effort to spend roughly $750 million to limit the spread of Ebola. "Ebola is now an epidemic of the likes we have not seen before,” Obama insisted. "It is

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way
