I'm sure this was posted before but I found this interesting and very accurate. People forgot the conservatives were the ones that voted out slavery, fought for human rights etc. I believe he is right when he says that somewhere along the way people were fooled into thinking that democrats were for the people. I believe the Conservative party still stands for these things today and believe that a healthy business environment prompts jobs. Regardless, it is an interesting stand take for instance the tax breaks. It was republicans that forced the issue that breaks should be for all Americans not just certain groups. Democrats on the other hand want to punish rich and give to others. The rich hiding their money is an issue for the law to deal with but on an ethical line everyone is treated the same. Democrats don't believe this such is the break in beliefs.

Anyway, interesting

Black Democrat switches to Republican

It's only a couple minutes..

While its great that this person finally saw the light, I'm still waiting on black democrats to figure out that amnesty for 8 million illegals means fewer jobs and less pay for them. Will loyalty to the race and undying support for Obama and Democrats trump common sense? Of course it will, and the net effect will be more un- and under-employed black citizens. But you can't tell them that. They don't want to hear it.

He seems to be a very confused man.

Comparing modern Democrats to the Democrats in the civil rights era is either an act of repugnant intellectual dishonesty or utter stupidity.

The ideals of both parties had nothing to do with today's political landscape.

Honestly guys? if you want this guy to be your figurehead as a black man who "gets it," please, PLEASE, do it.

He's not very bright.

You and the Senator are both mistaken.

Slavery and civil rights was never a Democrat vs Republican or Conservative vs Liberal debate/war /argument. It was always North Vs South.

I find it so stupid when people claim either party doesnt care about the people. Yes , i disagree with republicans, but i am also not so blind as to say they dont care about those they serve.

The article also states that this man was only a Democrat since 2007 and that he always voted with the conservatives.

Tax breaks are meant (or should be meant ) to help those who are the most disadvantaged, not those who are the most well off who dont need it. What you are arguing is the equivalent of you and another guy seeing a car crash into a poll and then you ask this guy( is he ok) as if he was the one hurt.

If all that is true , then why exactly should we be republicans considering that all your leaders in congress also support it ?

Worst case, you are completely wrong on all counts

Best case, you are right and also proving Republicans dont care as well.

The entire premise behind a "tax break" is the assumption that your money is really the government's money and the government is just giving you permission to have more of the money that is rightfully yours.

If you're a big government type, as most liberals and Democrats are, then you shouldn't have a problem with current tax policy. Its not your money to begin with, so you have no say in how its disbursed.

So the state senator who use to always be a Republican, who switched to the Democrats in a time web it was fashionable to be a Democrat to stay in office, now is switching back to being a Republican....color me not shocked.

Anyone who is listening or believing what he is telling you is obviously being fooled because anyone who would leave their party to stay in office will say anything you want to believe to stay in office.

"Leave the government plantation and the party of disappointment. Free at last. Free at last."

Great speech! Obviously, one of the few dems with enough wits about him to see what's right in front of his face.

I had never heard of him before. I won't soon forget him.

Blacks should sit up and take notice. This fella is an old-school black who knows the truth as it happened instead of the way the swooning liberal media paints it and the way the toe suckers and knee humpers fall for it.

God Bless Mr. Guillory.

Haha, you think Guillory was a Democrat? That is really cute, though I will say the Democrats that voted that Republican into office definitely fooled themselves.

That's true of ethnocentric Hispanics also. Their tribal loyalty trumps our immigration laws. Even though I am sure that many Hispanic-Americans have been negatively impacted by illegal immigration also. But Obama is promising their ethnic group amnesty and I guess that is all that matters to them. This country and its citizens be damned.
