Political parties don’t observe respect!
By Lucius Gantt
The major and minor political parties that you love do not deserve respect, individuals do!
African Americans, more than any other ethnic group in the United States, need to understand that there are good people and bad people in every political party, faction, caucus or group.
Political devils are devils regardless of their political party affiliation.
Now is the time when my friends and others contact me to help this or that political candidate.
Well, Lucius will help his friends in politics whenever friends ask me to help them politically.
Lucius, as a person, or as the owner of All World Consultants, a full service political company, doesn’t volunteer for any politician when he is asked.
I pick my own political charities just like I choose other organizations to assist, contribute to or to work for free of charge.
To me, it’s an insult to watch politicians and political candidates pay some people and to refuse to pay others. It’s especially insulting if participants in political purchasing considerations are paid or not paid based on racial motivations.
The idea that all African Americans should bow down to, suck up to, contribute to, endorse and vote for a candidate just because he is affiliated with a specified political party is an idea that should be discarded, discredited, deserted, forsaken and abandoned!
God is everywhere and he is everywhere at the same time. Wherever you find Christ you will find an anti-Christ lurking around as close as he or she can.
After you take off your political T-shirts, buttons, lapel pins, hats and scarfs what you will find is a person. You will find an imperfect person that is capable of telling a lie, making a mistake and a person that has done things in life that they regret.
If everybody Black loves Democratic Presidential candidates they should all hate Democratic State Attorneys that encourage the false arrests, over prosecution and the more than lengthy sentences and jail time of Black men, women and children!
If everybody hates Republicans that oppose symbolic gestures done by Democrats to woo Black votes then Black citizens and Black voters should love Republicans that support enterprise zones, tax breaks, minority considerations in purchasing transactions and political ideas and legislation regarding those things.
If African Americans feel a need to jump on a particular political party bandwagon a year in advance of an election, they should be able to explain to you why their jump was necessary and important.
What’s the rush? Why can’t Black people listen to all parties and all candidates to hear what they will do for Black people like women listen to what candidates will do for women or like Hispanics listen to candidates to hear their views on immigration?
More importantly, why can’t Black people keep their political dollars in their pockets until a candidate comes along that will spend political dollars with individuals and companies in Black communities?
I respect the political parties and political candidates that respect me. You can tell who your favorite political party or your favorite political candidate respects by who they spend their personal and political money with.
You don’t have to believe me or take my word for it but it ain’t you! The political parties and political candidates that you love and respect have done nothing to show their love and respect for you!
Instead of respecting a donkey or an elephant, respect yourself! (Buy Gantt’s latest book, Beast Too: Dead Man Writing on Amazon.com and from bookstores everywhere. Contact Lucius at www.allworldconsultants.net. And, if you want to, “Like” The Gantt Report page on Facebook.)
