Ronald Reagan Started Off His Presidency By Making an Important Point, But It Was All Down Hill From There

By Robert Ringer

Though it’s difficult for those gullible souls who are excited yet again about one presidential candidate or another to comprehend, politicians (with VERY few exceptions) — in both parties — are not interested in helping the “underprivileged.”

Rather, they see them as faceless, expendable, less-than-human creatures who not only can be bribed into voting for them, but can be used for photo ops when needed. Behind closed doors, politicians like to refer to them as “useful idiots.”

Even the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is suspect. As the great Thomas Sowell has said, blacks made greater progress escaping poverty before the Civil Rights Act was passed than after. (The out-of-wedlock birthrate for blacks was less than 25 percent versus nearly 75 percent today!)

In a 2003 article in Jewish World Review, Sowell pointed out that more blacks rose into professional ranks in the five years preceding passage of the Civil Rights Act than in the five years after its passage. What a stunning indictment of government’s social engineering! But facts are nothing more than inconvenient truths to Washington’s political royalty.

As the man said nearly thirty-five years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problem; government IS the problem.” Like all politicians with good intentions, he may have lost his way as he sunk deeper and deeper into the D.C. cesspool, but give him credit for hitting it out of the park on his first inaugural day.
