"Recently I have made what many are referring to as 'a bold decision' to switch my party.... You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the 'illusion' that their agenda and their policies are what's best for black people. Somehow it has been forgotten that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.... The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow. It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.... You see, at the heart of liberalism, is the idea that only a great and powerful big Government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control and they disguise this control as charity.... Their support of dependency over self-reliance, of everything but traditional marriage, of abortion on demand, their policies have encouraged the high teen birth rates, high school drop-out rates, high incarceration rates and very high unemployment rates."
