    In the Spirit of Humility,



    Marco Rubio shows other Republicans how to respond to Black Lives Matter


    ... In a largely unnoticed appearance on Fox News's The Kelly File in August — resurfaced by Peter Beinart andJamelle Bouie on Wednesday — Sen. Marco Rubio gave a surprisingly strong response to the issues raised by Black Lives Matter that showed he not only views racial disparities in the criminal justice system as a real issue, but actually understands the roots of the problem ...

    Clyde, I was surprised at his statement regarding BLM. But it does not matter what he says, he is a Republican a vote that way is a vote for white supremacy.

    Without a doubt BlackTone, absolutely. If he didn't have Cuban roots, it would be even worse.

    Mark Rubio is a young man

    So this is not bound to be his only attempt at just winning his current parties presidential nomination etc

    His candid comments are one thing

    Him attempting to mislead blacks in general merely reflects his obvious personal opinions about us too

    He actually only spoke briefly about the black lives matter backed protests in particular and that was just a clever ploy

    Otherwise he was and is hyping the same ole b s aka states rights etc

    And us basing so much on gender or race in general is a bad move

    Some better off brown and black folk feel also feel and think far differently than we do here

    So we also have to be more cautious and wary as we respond to new challenges too

    fyi

    I'm just trying to get my mind around your take on mark rubio etc

    And you have already admitted to merely consider mark rubio the less offensive of those seeking the presidential nomination of the republican party etc

    But what were his votes as a member of the Florida state legislature on stand your ground laws etc

    To me that is far more relevant and significant as regards who we should also consider against or for our causes too

    fyi

    Personally, I don't like Rubio, at all, and his cuban roots only makes him tolerable beyond White folk.

    Okay, we've heard from the left leg and unless walking in a circle is reliable, I'm going to be the different voice (right leg) and say the last true Democrat was Kennedy. "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country." That entails much, like voting, opening your small business, volunteering, being part.....

    I used to be Democrat, until it morphed into what it is today, a Socialist-Comunistic party in their ideals and will of law that must be enforced (Hillary). Take a look at Communist nations, China, Russia, Cuba, for starts - poverty - hunger - loss of individual rights and ambitions. OPPRESSION!

    Do you know why there is so much poverty? Because Socialists and Communists are against free capitalism. So where do they get their wealth to fund their Socialist programs? There isn't any money from big business, no opportunity for the little guy to make a few bucks either without getting taxed to death to pay the government so they can build their military and police to keep the people from trying to escape and rise above restrictions and regulations.

    The Socialist requirements on small business will put mom and pop stores out of business because there will be laws and more laws. They can't afford that. Just one little example being pushed by the Dems today, "one flat rate of pay for all. Two things will happen, small business goes out, or prices increase. Your hamburger is going to be priced out of this world. Every time that mininum wage gets raised by the government, the very first thing that goes up is prices, starting with rent. It happens every time. With this Socialist-Commuistic law passed, out the door goes incentive. Who wants to build anything great when there is no carrot to rise up, and build again, more jobs, more wonderful products and your government leaders have control over what you learn in school, and what you can think.

    The Democrat party is NOT your grandfather's Democrat anymore. Now the Republican party has filled that void. My mother told me when I asked what is the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans that the democrats are for family and the working man. She said the republicans are for big business. But now Republicans are for family, unity, protecting the Constitution, and liberty of the individual. It has all changed dramatically.

    The Democrat leadership is flirting with being a party of a one world government under the U.N. We are giving over our distinct identity to the school yard bullies, so to speak. We are so worried about what Iran might find fault in us that we have been taken over by Russia in Syria. What next? If we do not have strength in the morality of our Constitution we will find strangers setting our laws.

    Maybe you should re-consider and drop Fox and Glenn Beck sister willa, both represent the extreme far right.

    But here's more on the GOP:



    The real reason the Republican Party is imploding: It’s still all about race

    What's causing the GOP's slide into complete dysfunction? It's not overheated rhetoric; it's the politics of race




    ... Where they break from the rest of the political establishment is in their analysis; that apocalyptic stuff about the end of the republic, the New Black Panther Party, and immigration being akin to “invasion.”

    But that’s not craziness; that’s racism. They’re different. So if Brooks and others really want to know how this dysfunction got started, they’ll have to look back further. Before the Tea Party, and before Paul Ryan was even born. They’ll have to examine the roots of today’s Republican Party. I’d recommend they start with Richard Nixon and the presidential campaign of 1968 ...

    :research:
    Let's see, then the general vote here is going to Hillary and not the passionate Cuban, Rubio. And the other consensus is for Hillary or one of four old white socialists over a second Black president. I'm learning. :research:
