Last month, black Louisiana state senator, Elbert Guillory, switched from the Democrat to Republican party. For the record, I’m a Libertarian — not a Republican. But Senator Guillory, in the explanation of his switch (see video above), expresses numerous values that I share.

Here are the main points of Elbert Guillory’s oration:

  • Doesn’t consider his switch a “bold decision” but rather “the right decision”
  • Democrat party has created “the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people”
  • The Republican party was founded on an anti-slavery principle
  • Lincoln, author of The Emancipation Proclamation, was a Republican
  • At the heart of liberalism is the idea that only big government can be the benefactor of social justice
  • The left is primarily concerned with control, and they disguise this control as charity
  • Social welfare programs are designed to control the black community, keep them dependent on the government
  • Social welfare programs have failed; the black community is still as poor as always
  • The concept of freedom has become a cliche; freedom is complex and all encompassing
  • Freedom means small government, an unbiased press, citizen privacy, choice in education, and most importantly independence from government

I applaud Senator Guillory’s move.
