Why Do We Vote That Way

I’m busy re-editing a book I wrote some time ago and came across the following paragraph and thought it might be interesting to some of the people reading this blog. This paragraph is taken from the book, God’s Tiniest Angel and the Last Unicorn. Please bear with me. That is one fact I have never quite figured out. Why do black people vote for Democrats in spite of all the entitlement when it was and is the Democrats that made and make up the Ku Klux Klan? I think most black people are oblivious to the fact Republicans supported black people since the time before the Klan. They must also be unaware of the fact white Republicans were lynched from the very same trees as blacks and that Democrats have failed to sign over two hundred bills introduced that forbade the lynching of blacks. Lyndon B. Johnson was one of the more well-known Democrats who refused to sign a bill forbidding the lynching of blacks. Regarding Lyndon B. Johnson, when he failed to sign that bill, one of his aides said we would never get another Democrat as president. POTUS Johnson replied, “Within one year I will have those (epithet deleted) eating out of my hand”. How right he was! Why do we vote the way we do? Why do blacks historically vote Democrat? That makes no sense to me, but when I talk to my educated black friends, none of them vote Democratic. I am going to take a leap here and bet that being it is the uneducated blacks voting Democratic, that is why the Democrats try to keep blacks uneducated. The Democrats get their votes from the poor and uneducated. So, people like Corey Booker and Nancy Pelosi probably say behind closed doors, “Let’s keep them that way”. Try to think of one state or city that does well under Democratic control. Hard to come up with one, right? I can’t think of one either. Do you suppose that is the reason the Democrats want open borders? If they can let millions of undocumented aliens across the borders, it means more votes for them. Isn’t this also the reason they do not want voter registration? They know that undocumented aliens will vote Democratic. The Democrats will give an undocumented alien a free education and leave the blacks uneducated. They will give the undocumented alien free healthcare and leave our poor, disadvantaged and blacks without healthcare. How do all of you legal minorities in America feel about this? You have Republicans fighting for you and Democrats trying to plow you under. They understand that once you are educated, you will no longer vote Democrat. You Californians need to get rid of Gavin Newsome. He also wants to give away your state to aliens. This is reverse racism. Let minorities in and give away free education, free housing, and healthcare to foreigners when you cannot even provide the same to your citizens. Now you want a bailout from the rest of the States for your bad management California. What gives? How will all you liberals survive your bad management practices? I doubt if you can.
