We are not 'feeling' the current security procedures by TSA

We like how Ron Paul explains the TSA search problem:

This is humiliating and very tacky for cancer survivors to go through this type of search. We believe that it also violates a person's right to privacy due to their medical condition.

This blog story also notes the security procedures used by the Israeli airline El Al that could be effective here in at US airports.

It's our government wasting tax dollars again that will not be effective in the long run.

DC Councilmember Marion Barry discusses welfare reform

Marion Barry: White Advocates Want to Continue Enslavement of Blacks
From Washington City Paper

Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry went on the Fox Business Channel today to kick off his tour as the poster child for welfare reform. At about the four minute mark, Barry makes the claim that African Americans are supportive of his proposal to impose a five-year limit on welfare payments while the white advocates who testified Monday against his proposal are basically trying to keep poor people of color "powerless" and "enslaved," albeit "less so" than before.

Why do people keep voting for him? Slavery is a state of mind. It's time for him to retire.

Americans Want A New Party

Video clip: David Collison, the chairman of the Reform Party of the United States, takes a moment to discuss the vitality of a legitimate third party movement.

America is about choices and taking risk. Are you brave enough to vote for the candidate that you represent what YOU believe? Will that candidate make your county, ward, state or country better than what it is now?

Why won't the GOP compete for African American votes?

"In many ways, it's a shame that African Americans will vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. " ~Eugene Robinson, The Washington Post

This article is a prime example of why Black voters will not advance in the US if they only vote...or put their eggs in one basket a.k.a the Democratic party. What major improvements has African Americans experienced lately? Has the number of Blacks in prison decrease nationally? Probably not and that is due to the fact that our political leaders also have their own agenda that they want to accomplish.

Back on the Blog

This blog has been on hiatus for over a year as the members of the the network has been involved in community projects across the country. We have decided to get back into the political arena to be a resource for Blacks who want to participate in the Independent movement. The writers of this blog are moderates (socially liberal, fiscally conservative), however, we want Black independent voters from all political spectrums to share their opinions and provide feedback on what we can do to ensure the political process truly represents the best of America.

We also want to be a resource for other races who want to recurit Black voters in the Independent movement. We understand that cultural and regional challenges are roadblocks to bring people of color in this movemnent. However, communication and the willingess to respect each other are the keys to get the United States of America back on track and continue to be a leader in this world.

We invite you to participate in this blog and be part of history. Please contact us by leaving a comment and someone will contact you on how to move forward.
