A large percentage of blacks tend to be social conservatives (which faux libertarians hate), but when it comes down to it most of even these will vote Demonrat. I suppose it's because of what they believe is their economic "best interest."Even J.C. Watts and Armstrong Williams at the LEAST, talked about voting for Obama because of the historical precedence. That's a shame that they would even CONSIDER putting aside their VALUES over race/blood ties.
Probably true, but it isn't true of people like Armstrong Williams or J.C. Watts. THAT'S what depresses Conservatives, that when it comes down to it, "we" degenerate to tribalism rather than reason.
True, but in all fairness, there were plenty of notable white Republicans who either voted for, or seriously considered voting for Obama in '04 based solely on the "historic" nature of him being the first black (well, half black) president.
Maybe. Can you name any? And you did say "Republicans." I spoke of CONSERVATIVE black leaders (J. C. Watts, Armstrong Williams).
And you're still insisting that these are CONSERVATIVES???? Although she's not her father, Nixon was no conservative. He gave us the EPA, and if I remember correctly, price controls.
My whole point was that black CONSERVATIVES, when it comes down to it, put RACE above principle. You are throwing in white REPUBLICANS to say they do it too.I'm talking about CONSERVATIVES. As you SHOULD know, being a Republican doesn't make you conservative.
