Break the bonds of slavery

February 5, 2014 

Letter writer Frankie Seaberry states that "Republicans are being controlled by Tea Party confederates." Confederates, as in, I assume, the Confederate States of America who fought for slavery and racism? Thus, the Tea Party, because of their belief in less taxation and limited federalism, as did the original Tea Party patriots of 1776, are racists.

Because 90 percent of African-Americans vote Democratic and that is the party dominated by progressive liberals, they have chosen the political ideology that ingrains dependency. That, in turn, makes the belief of limited federalism, not by just the Tea Party but by any individual or group, as a perceived threat to the well-being of African-Americans. Therefore, anyone who wants to reduce the size and scope of the federal government is a racist.

Likewise, an individual who ignores and subverts the U.S. Constitution and even deceives the masses, to Seaberry, is justified when it advances the expansion of federalism, their crutch for the political and social choices they've made. That individual, a narcissist and statist who happens to share Seaberry's race, then rises as one of the greatest presidents who ever lived.

In the past, I have written about the social and economic conditions of African-Americans because of their choice of progressive liberalism. Slavery comes in many forms, Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King both abhorred slavery in all its forms. Liberal utopian socialism is one of them.
