Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
With those words Satan (the serpent) made Eve think that he was looking out for her best interests. He was saying: "Listen, I am telling you the truth because I know better for you than you do for yourself."
Of course the woman, Eve, fell for it, and ate of the forbidden fruit. And gave it to her husband and he also ate it. The result? Sin entered the world and with it death, both spiritual and physical.
I might come under some flack for this, but today's liberal Democrats remind me of Satan here. For years they have told blacks, women, Hispanics, and every other minority group, that they are the ones looking out for their best interests. That they are the ones that know what is best for them. Just like Satan they are saying the right things, but the truth is just the opposite.
Satan didn't have Adam's and Eve's best interests in mind when he soothed their ears with words. Just as Satan was "more subtil than any beast of the field", so too are today's liberal Democrats. They subtly pull the rug out from under the feet of the minorities that they sooth with words. The result is that the minority groups never make any ground, yet they continue to support those that lie to them.
Levon Yuille, on his local radio program Joshua's Trail, spends a lot of time discussing the failure of liberal Democratic rule to the African-American community. (His show can be heard Saturday mornings, 8am-10am, on news talk 1400AM, WDTK.) Mr. Yuille often makes the point that despite the tight grip that liberal Democrats have had on the city of Detroit, Detroit still languishes near the bottom in economic statistical categories, and social categories like drop-out rate, and abortion. Has liberal Democratic rule failed the city of Detroit? But they sure do talk a good game.
The state of Michigan is in the same boat. Except for a few years, liberal Democrats have had control of the state government for pretty much my entire life. The labor unions have a big impact on that: they take their worker-paid union dues, and use it for political action, and in getting liberal Democrats elected to office. Despite the unions telling blue-collared workers for years that voting for liberal Democrats would increase their job security, Michigan is dead last today in unemployment, and continues to hemorrhage jobs at an alarming rate. Has liberal Democratic rule failed the state of Michigan? But they sure do talk a good game.
Amazingly, the same groups continue to fall victim to these lying liberal Democrats. Blue-collar workers, blacks, Hispanics, women, and even the phyiscally challenged believe what they read in the mainstream media. They fall for the lie that liberal Democrats are looking out for them, while conservative Republicans want them eradicated. The truth that is decades of failed liberal politics do not seem to have made a dent in the lies that are spun by the left, and those minority groups continue to support liberal Democrats.
Meantime, liberal Democrats continue to dangle forbidden fruit in front of those groups, and those groups continue to eat that fruit despite the harm to both body and soul. The result is that those groups continue to wallow, they continue rooted in their self-pity, year after year. And the lying liberal Democrats continue to prey on that self-pity. The cycle remains unbroken, no matter how long the misery continues.
Wake up minorities. It is time to see the folly of your ways. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and yes, even the mighty Barack Obama, do not have your best interests in mind. They talk a good game, and you continue to fall for it, but the truth is they are interested in one thing: forwarding their ideology. Big governement socialism at all costs is what they are after, and if they have to step on workers, blacks, Hispanics, women, and the physically challenged in the process, so be it. Oh, but they are such smooth talkers. They are "more subtil than any beast of the field".
Nancy Pelosi can stand before the cameras and microphones and call phony tears to her eyes, but look at her record. She has done nothing to improve those groups' positions. That would be a zero sum game for her. She and her ilk need those groups in poverty and in need, so that her and her ilk can continue to prey on those groups' desires and fears. "More subtil" indeed.
So, minority groups, quit voting for the snakes. If you belong to any of the groups I mention above, ask yourselves this question: are you better off since you began voting for these liberal Democrats? Have they kept the promised lies they made to you? Did their policies actually do what they said they would do? If your answer to those questions is "no" then maybe you need to rethink who you support and vote for. Don't let your past folly cloud your current judgement. It is okay to admit to being wrong in the past, if you are willing to fix it in the future.
Liberal Democrats have failed minorities for far too long. It is high time those minorities hold them accountable.
