LA State Senator Leaves Democrat Party

Posted by Steve Markowitz on June 18, 2013

A few weeks ago Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, a long-time Democrat, left the Party to become a Republican.  He recently released a video, posted below, that passionately explains the reasons behind his change.

It would be an injustice to Guillory’s speech for this Blog to attempt to interpret his words that are so eloquently presented.  Perhaps the key point behind Guillory’s conversion is the fact he raises that after all the welfare and trillions spent on related programs since Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society”, African-Americans are still “as poor as they’ve ever been.”  This reality may be behind a small, but growing trend; a conservative movement within the black community that are exemplified by Col. Alan West and Dr. Ben Carson.  Such a movement could have historic implications to the future of the United States and its politics.  I must also put the deepest of fear into those that make a living and obtain power by keeping the poor wards of the state.
