The Dillard Doctrine

Urban Conservative Commentary on Politics & Life

A Word of Advice

The marching orders have been given:

“I expect all of you to march with me, and press on,” Obama said. “… Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do.”

In case he wasn’t clear, here’s what is really being said:

When black unemployment is at 16%, Obama wants you to “stop complaining.” When 40% of blacks nationwide live in poverty, he wants you to “stop grumbling.” And although the president can personally fix none of these problems-many of which came about through our own doing-he wants you to “stop crying.”

What does he want you to do? Get back in line, and help him “pass this bill right away.” Never mind that it won’t get the unemployment rate below 6%, or that it will have a negative effect on the economy beyond 2012. Oh, and by the way, he wants you to reelect him while you’re at it.

Let me propose an alternative.

Think, and read, and research for yourself. Don’t just blindly follow, not even me. Get up, out, and examine the issues from your own perspective. There’s a quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson that you should consider:

“Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.

If the president’s agenda is something you can agree with, then support it, by all means. If it isn’t, there’s plenty of room on my side of the street.

But whatever you do, do it for yourself, based on your own conclusions.

Not just because someone that looks like you told you so.
