|GOP Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina|
A ticket to drive Democrats insane
Using the Race Card will fall flat on its face
By any standard political timeline it is way, way too early to talk about a GOP ticket. But I have a gut feeling that the entire Republican field of candidates has imploded. The Donald has come.
The fat lady is singing, but the GOP candidates are refusing to listen.
The exciting news to me is the new SurveyUSA poll showing The Donald pulling an unheard of 25% of the African American vote in the general election.
The Trump appeal crosses a lot of supposedly solid political lines. Many Black voters see Trump as looking out for them on immigration and exporting jobs while traditional Republicans are for open borders and poverty for all American citizens. By comparison establishment Republican Mitt Romney pulled a "massive" 6% of the Black vote and McCain got 4%.
If this trend to Trump continues there is an opportunity to re-establish the old Civil War era Republican-Black alliance that died out in the 1930s.
To this end I humbly propose a 2016 ticket of Donald Trump and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.
A Trump-Scott ticket could up end the election:
- The phony Democrat weapon of the Race Card is removed.
- If a 25% or more Black GOP vote happens a number of states with large Black populations could go Republican: Florida (17% Black), Virginia (20% Black), Ohio (12% Black) and Pennsylvania (11% Black).
Opportunity may come knocking for the GOP. But the question of the day remains: Will Republicans embrace the American people or continue to lick the boots of the open borders Billionaire Cartels on Wall Street?
|A Pro-Civil Rights Republican|
GOP President U.S. Grant made many advances in civil and human rights. In 1869 and 1871, he signed bills promoting black voting rights and prosecuting Klan leaders. He won passage of the Fifteenth Amendment, which gave freedmen the vote, and the Civil Rights Act of 1871, which empowered the President "to arrest and break up disguised night marauders."
In response to the renewed violent outbreaks against African Americans, Grant was the first President to sign a congressional civil rights act: the Civil Rights Act of 1875. This legislation mandated equal treatment in public accommodations and jury selection.
Former President Grant acidly remarked that this anti-labor wing of the Republicans were the same people who had resisted using federal troops “to protect the lives of negroes. Now, however, there is no hesitation about exhausting the whole power of the government to suppress a strike on the slightest intimation that danger threatens.”

Back in the day Republicans actually cared about African Americans and were rewarded with massive GOP majorities and Black Republican Congressmen.
