Mitt Romney has been viciously attacked for his view that President Barack Obama was re-elected because he promised “gifts” to minorities, youth and women.
The exit polls and post-election data confirm that Romney is absolutely correct in his analysis, yet he’s being attacked once again by establishment Republicans. According to CNN: 95 percent of black Americans, 66 percent of Latinos, 61 percent of Asians and 66 percent of voters under the age of 30 voted for Obama.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal forcefully rejected Romney’s assertion, saying he was “absolutely wrong.” Jindal added, “I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party. …” Then he went even further, warning that Republicans need to “stop being the stupid party.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Romney campaign surrogate, also disagreed with Romney’s analysis and stated on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” “You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive.” This is the same guy who toured his hurricane-ravaged state lavishing praise on the most divisive president in American history!
Even Newt Gingrich jumped on Romney. Gingrich told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week” that the comments were “nuts” and that Gov. Romney’s analysis was “insulting and profoundly wrong.” Amazing! Newt was the same guy who correctly labeled Obama as the “food stamp president.”
In 2008, I said that Obama was elected because of white guilt and racist black voters. In 2012, Obama was re-elected because half the country was deceived by lies about capitalism and voted for government handouts.
America’s decline will never be fixed via political solutions – though sound fiscal and social policy can encourage good behavior. The battle that we’re engaged in is a spiritual one (between good and evil; right versus wrong). Unfortunately, too many conservative Christians are missing this point. Unless they wake up to this reality, we will lose our country.
You cannot fight evil with evil – you have to fight it with good. As conservatives we have to be wiser than our opponents. Evil and those that follow it have no wisdom. Yes, they’re very cunning, conniving and deceptive, and we saw this play out during this presidential election with Obama.
America would not be in the sad fiscal and social predicament she’s in today if conservative Christians had not allowed the left-wing Democratic Party to take over the public education system and brainwash, dumb-down and deceive young people. Most of our young have been indoctrinated into accepting socialism and have turned against the principles outlined in the Constitution.
The constituents that showed up to vote for Obama were angry blacks who think the “racist” white man owes them; the young unmarried women (they want free contraception, sex without consequences and abortion on demand); the same-sex marriage crowd who want to change the definition of marriage; Hispanics who’ve been spoiled by handouts and want amnesty; and the youth who were encouraged to vote for empty promises of “hope” – a utopia where all their college debts would be forgiven and government would build a “green economy.”
Over the past 22 years, I’ve spoken to colleges, churches and various organizations across the country. I meet young people who come from Christian homes and say that their parents believe in God and vote Republican, yet they’re supporting the Democratic Party. What has happened to these kids who go off to college and come back with their minds corrupted?
Real Christians would go out of their way to ensure that their children are protected from the social engineering and brainwashing of these left-wing institutions. If parents set good examples in the home, this would not be happening. The Bible says: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
The public schools, politicians and the radical homosexual Hollywood crowd are corrupting your children at a very early age. That’s why Barack Obama and the liberals were able to seduce the youth.
The black family is a perfect example of what happens when a people are seduced by government handouts. The once-intact black family unit fell away from God some 50 years ago when they accepted welfare over work and allowed the government to be the daddy of the family. As a result, most blacks don’t think for themselves, and they’re immoral. The black out-of-wedlock birth rate is over 70 percent, crime in the inner cities is skyrocketing, and the men are nowhere to be found.
The Democrats promise to take away from the “rich” (whites) in order to give to the “poor” (minorities). This same dependency is being nurtured in other groups – especially the young.
Republicans have to be honest about the growing appeal of free stuff and welfare to segments of the population. Conservatives will never win votes by outspending Democrats and offering handouts to voters – it’s contrary to our natural desire for limited government and free enterprise.
The solution is a return to God, family, the Constitution and capitalism; stopping the indoctrination of children; and electing tea-party candidates. This is what gets us back on track to fundamentally changing this dependency culture.
I hope and pray that America will awaken before it’s too late.
