So much for that liberal narrative:
…In New Mexico, Susana Martinez was elected as the nation’s first female Hispanic governor. Nikki Haley, whose parents were born in India, will be the first woman governor in South Carolina, and Brian Sandoval became Nevada’s first Hispanic governor.
Insurance company owner Tim Scott will be the first black Republican congressman from South Carolina since Reconstruction, after easily winning in his conservative district. Scott, a 45-year-old state representative, earned a primary victory over the son of the one-time segregationist U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond.
In Florida, veteran Allen West ousted a two-term Democrat to a House seat. He is the first black Republican elected to Congress from Florida since a former slave served two terms in the 1870s…
There will be more of this in the future – conservatism is on the march and minorities are naturally conservative as they have (a) learned how hideous big government is at first hand and (b) if they have any spirit at all they’ll go for free markets and free people as the best means to thrive in the United States.
In the end, of course, the conflict is not between black or white or what have you. Liberals want it to be that because they want to use racial hatred as a means of dividing and conquering the people – but the real battle is between liberty and slavery. Do you wish to be free? If you answer, “yes”, then you’ll eventually go towards conservatism. Those who want someone to look after them (or who wish to look after others, whether they like it or not) will go liberal.
For too long the only leaders minorities have had to look towards in elective office have been nothing more than tools of a rich, elite liberal power structure. Now, more and more they’ll be able to find independent Americans who share their background and have made it by hard work and self-reliance. That will spell the doom for liberal dominance of minority voters – and that is what we, on the right, must work to advance with all our might.
