The Elites in the GOP are no worse than the elites in the Deomocratic party. I feel sorry for black peope who continue to put all our faith in the Democratic party when they end up doing no more for the poor than the Republicans. The one thing the Democrats did do a little in was with Unions but since theve sold out I fail to see anything worthwhile they offer us.Clinton passed that awful welfare reform bill also. But everyone has the right to be with any party they want to. All i say is why do we have to be loyal to the Democratic party, why not at the very least register independent and reserve the vote.
