ElbertGuillory On Friday, Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, elected as a Democrat, switched parties and became the first black Republican senator in his state since Reconstruction. “Their support of dependency over self-reliance, of everything but traditional marriage, of abortion on demand, their policies have encouraged the high teen birth rates, high school drop out rates, high incarceration rates and very high unemployment rates,” said Guillory.

Pro-Life African American Republican: Tim Scott…, posted with vodpod

Begins speech reading from the Holy Scriptures: EPHESIANS 3:24, “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask

“If you truly believe in the future of this country WE must go to work…it is our responsibility to get it done!”

Thanks His Family and Friends

Mentions his friend and campaign manager and how he made the Lord Jesus Christ His Savior, “He is my brother, when my back is turned and I needed someone to count on- he is there…He has been there thru the fire and worked for free when we didn’t have the money to pay him.”

Thanks his mother Francis W. Scott…” She has had some struggles along the way…I was not a good kid…I failed Spanish and English and when you fail Spanish and English – you are NOT bilingual – My momma had a concept of tough love, so she bought the switch and said ‘go get it for me boy’, and she wore me out when I needed it ! I will tell you without question, the super here, the American dream that I am currently living belongs to Francis Scott !”

“We must win back this country not for Democrats, not for Republicans but for the American People.”

“Our Founders had it right, they understood that a Constitution constructed properly would protect us from other flawed men.”

” All we hear is the issue ‘he is a Black Republican’ I gotta tell you I’m black, I’m proud, I got a bald head … all those things don’t matter you see in S. Carolina in Charleston, in Myrtle Beach …the individual…”

“The formula is a very simple formula- We must limit the control of Government in our lives !”

” We must stop that system in DC and we’re gonna start TODAY!”

“Lower taxes encourages entrepreneurs, to do what we do best, create jobs. If the government could create jobs, communism would have worked. ”

“If you don’t have it – DON’T SPEND IT ! – A 13 trillion dollar deficit – Enough is Enough is Enough !”

“I’m amazed by the fact that the Good Lord, allowed me to be born in America !”

Tim Scott has won the seat in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District. Mr. Scott – a Tea Party movement fave – has 65% of the vote, while his Democratic challenger Ben Frasier has 29%.

Congressman-Elect Scott is the first black Republican elected from the Deep South since Rep. George Henry White of North Carolina in 1898. He is the first one elected from his home state, South Carolina, to Congress since Rep. George Murray in 1894.

From The Los Angeles Times: “South Carolina voters on Tuesday elected the first black Republican to Congress from the Deep South since Reconstruction. State Rep. Tim Scott easily defeated perennial Democratic candidate Ben Frasier and five third-party candidates to win the 1st District seat left vacant by the retirement of Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Brown. Scott will be the nation’s first black GOP congressman since Oklahoma’s J.C. Watts retired in 2003.”

It is the first time that two black Republicans (Tim Scott and Allen West) have served in the U.S. Congress at the same time since the mid-1990s. And two or more from the South, since the 1870s.

What did the election of the first black (Democrat) President give us? The rise of black Republicans !

Election 2010 surprise: rise of black Republicans
By Allen C. Guelzo Sep 3, 2010

Gettysburg, Pa. – In June, a Charleston businessman named Tim Scott won the Republican nomination for South Carolina’s First Congressional District, defeating Paul Thurmond, the son of state political legend Strom Thurmond, with nearly 70 percent of the primary vote.

And Tim Scott is black.

Even more surprising, Mr. Scott’s platform is a repudiation of Barack Obama’s agenda. He promises to support a repeal of the health-care law, simplify the tax code, and cut federal spending. Overall, the GOP has fielded more than 30 African-American candidates for federal office, including Ryan Frazier in Colorado’s Seventh Congressional District and Vernon Parker in Arizona’s Third Congressional District.

And as the economy loses steam, and President Obama’s poll numbers sag, the ultimate humiliation in this summer of Democratic discontent is to find Republicans trumpeting 2010 as “The Year of the Black Republicans.”

A trend with historic roots

This trend defies modern identity politics. In the 2008 election, 95 percent of black voters chose Obama. Yet the attraction between blacks and the Republican Party is not so strange as it seems.

For a century after emancipation in 1863, black voters routinely lined up behind the Republican Party as the party of Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator. Republican presidents held open federal patronage appointments as virtually the only public offices open to Southern blacks during the Jim Crow decades. Republicans in Congress sponsored civil rights legislation in 1866, 1871, 1875, and 1957, plus the Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill in 1918. In the 1930s, as New Deal Democrats began cultivating African-Americans, the Republican hold on African-American voters began to fracture. It broke down completely in the 1960s after Democratic President Lyndon Johnson endorsed the civil rights and voting rights legislation of 1964 and 1965. In 1964, 94 percent of black voters lined up behind Johnson, and every Democratic candidate since has enjoyed strong black support.

But today, many blacks have different hot-button issues: school choice, job creation, family values. And on these issues, black voters have not been well served by the Democratic leadership. After the 2004 presidential election, Democratic pollster Ron Lester warned that “there is a lot of compatibility and similarity between a lot of the positions that black folks take in terms of social issues and issues advocated by the Republicans.”

Not that this triggered any great shift among black voters. John Kerry captured 88 percent of their support in the 2004 presidential election.

But Democratic pollsters noticed uneasily that Mr. Kerry’s percentage had slipped two points from Al Gore’s percentage of the black vote in 2000, and in swing states like Ohio in 2004, the percentage of black voters pulling the Republican lever went from 9 percent to 16 percent. The Obama candidacy reversed that slippage. But the Scott nomination may be a small reminder that the mere presence of Obama as the first black Democratic president may not be enough to satisfy African-American restlessness with Obama’s party.

What have Democrats done for blacks lately? With black unemployment at 15.6 percent, African-Americans are questioning what Democrats have done for them. What’s more, this year’s black Republican candidates were far from being upper-middle-class racial mascots. Scott grew up in a poor Charleston neighborhood with a divorced mother who worked double shifts as a nurse’s assistant. Vernon Parker (who lost his August primary) was born to a single mother in Houston, and grew up in California with his grandmother, a housekeeper.

Still, black Republicans will have to face four decades of skepticism about GOP bona fides on race, not to mention the opposition of a Democratic party with the first African-American president as its head. But the most important question they’ll face from black voters will be the one they’ve posed themselves to Barack Obama and his party: “What have you done for us lately?” Only if the new black Republicans can answer that question will the pendulum of black political loyalties fully swing.
