Ever heard the term, “following lemmings over the cliff? It’s a mythical reference used to describe a pack of animals or individuals that follow each other over the cliff in order to destroy themselves for no apparent reason. That’s exactly what democrats did to themselves last night in the special senate election in Alabama. Instead of keepiing the current indicators of economic prosperity rolling they reverted to going back and replacing a republican senator for a democrat. NBA great Charles Barkley declared the victory a, “wake up call to all democrats” and further stated, “they should quit taking black folks for granted.”

 

 

If Mr. Barkley is concerned about democrat politicians taking advantage of black people, why vote for a democrat in the first place? All one needs to do is examine the economic data over the last eight years prior to the election of Donald Trump. Under the direction of Barack Hussein Obama, the nation’s economic prosperity never grew to 3 percent GDP.  Today, under president Trump, the economy is booming close to 4 percent GDP growth. One of the reasons behind the sudden growth in our economy is the removal of democrat regulations that kept the nation’s economy from growing during the Obama years.

Someone needs to remind Mr. Barkley since president Trump took office, black unemployment has fallen to a 17 year low according the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That number fell to an all time low of 7.5 percent in May of this year. During most of Barack Obama’s presidency, black unemployment was in double digits, hitting a high mark of 16.8 in March 2010. Between July 2008 (during the financial crisis) and February 2015, the rate remained above 10 percent.

What political party has historically taken black people for granted? The facts will tell you it has been the democrat party. Why would anybody in any state vote for a democrat if he or she wants to see economic growth, higher prosperity and a lower unemployment rate? Barack Obama and the democrat party failed to deliver on all these promises. It proves voting democrat is akin to politically destroying oneself. It’s also similar to following lemmings over the cliff.
