Michigan Young Democrats Are Against Granholm by Akindele Akinyemi
If Jennifer Granholm wins in November many young Black Democrats who worked her campaign will move out of state to find new jobs. This did not come from my mouth but FROM THEIR mouths.
Those who are on the Michigan Young Democrats, especially the ones working her camp here in Detroit, will be forced to find food, forced to find a job and have no clue on how they are going to survive. They are working on her campaign because they need to pay the bills or eat. Some have children and some need to pay their child support. House note is due, car note is due and the same rate of insurance that you are paying for (even though she is fighting for you in 5 years) is due as well.
They NEED Granholm to win because they hope and pray that they will get a permanent position with the Detroit office. This, however, will not happen and they will be forced to find another job with little hope. Some will start their own small business but will fail because of Granholm's high taxes (but they supported her) while others will go back to hustling. Some may even go as far as selling their ass (legally or illegally) on the side while looking for a job to feed themselves.
Don't believe me look it up.
Democratic PACs like the Black Slate, Eastside Slate, Community Coalition and the Fannie Lou Hamer Slate will not get anything from a Granholm Administration other than thank you and I hope never to see you ignorant Black folks again. They are pawns of the Democratic Party. Some other Black organizations are prostitutes of the Democratic Party. There is no difference between the Democratic massa raping our women and the Democratic massa raping our city resources. Both are rape and Black people who continue to vote Democratic in Detroit enjoy being raped over and over again. We love sexual conquests and sexual persuasions because it's a feel good thing to those who vote Democratic. It's political masturbation that we practice in Detroit because we like to feel good instead of looking at the real issues at hand.
Our Michigan Young Democrats do not even know the truth about Jennifer Granholm and her secret slush fund that funded millions of dollars on behalf of her campaign. She never disclosed this information, yet, she is blaming DeVos for not disclosing his financial information in public.
Don't believe me look it up.
Michigan Young Democrats, especially African Americans, do not know the REAL history of the Republican Party and how it has benefited Black people historically. They also do not know how the party benefited Black people today. This is because everything in Detroit is liberal. Most in the Michigan Young Democrats are working for Granholm because of emotion and not logic. I will lay in front of a bus if I'm lying with that one.
They cannot even tell me logically why they hate DeVos or the Republican Party. They really have no reason other than they were raised Democrat by their parents and they have been taught that the Democrats look after the poor and the Republicans look after the rich. This is the biggest hoax of all time. They cannot engage in a deep discussion other than "DeVos cannot debate, DeVos has no plan, and DeVos is for the rich." These are the most absurd counterpoints I have ever heard in an election cycle.
Again, how come the Michigan Young Democrats are working for a paycheck and are going to vote for DeVos in November? I know first hand knowledge they are voting for DeVos because these same young Democrats who have told me personally they are voting for DeVos because Granholm has not done anything to help children in failing public schools, she has not done anything to help people find a job with a degree and they agree with DeVos's Turn Around Plan.
They are afraid to switch their vote because they fear harassment while trying to raise their children, help their families and are afraid of being black-balled. They have told me this out of their mouths. Don't believe me. Go right on Woodward and Grand Blvd and ask the questions for yourself. Ask them why are the working for a paycheck and at the same time why are they supporting a governor and a Democratic party that enjoys raping Black people in Detroit.
I want those Michigan Young Democrats, who are working for Jennifer Granholm and the Michigan Democrats in general, to think about some things.
1. Detroit is a Democratic city.
2. Mayor Kilpatrick is a Democrat. His mother, Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, is a Democrat.
3. Congressman John Conyers is a Democrat.
4. There are 12 State Representatives in Detroit. Out of the 12, 11 of those State Representatives are Democrats.
5. There are 5 State Senators in Detroit. All are Democrats.
6. There are 15 Wayne County Commissioners. 8 of those commissioners are in Detroit. All are Democrats.
7. The entire Detroit School Board are Democrats.
8. The Wayne County Executive is a Democrat.
9. There are a overwhelming number of precinct delegates in Detroit who are Democrats.
10. The Detroit City Council are all Democrats.
Now, the Michigan Young Democrats should ask this next question:
a. Why is crime so high in Detroit?
b. How come the Detroit School System is so screwed up?
c. How come 31%-40% of the people living in Detroit are living in poverty and has been for the past three decades?
d. How come our property and city taxes are so high?
e. Why do we need to pay for bulk pick up?
f. Why would this mayor, who young Democrats love so much, propose to tax fast food here in the City of Detroit?
g. How come these same young Democrats, who love the Democratic Party, have not figured out that doing the same thing over and over again is called insanity?
h. How come these same young Democrats keep voting for the same people over and over again?
i. How come these same Young Democrats keep fighting for Granholm when they REALLY believe in the following:
1. In equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
2. Free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
3. Government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
4. The proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.
5. The most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
6. African Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
7. African Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
Granholm believes in the exact opposite. She believes in raising your taxes that YOU cannot afford. She is against educational options for parents and children. She is creating engineering/manufacturing jobs for the Asian population and NOT for the masses here in Detroit.
She cut revenue sharing from Detroit to keep us poor. She upholds a socialist ideology that has killed Black people citywide. She believes in abortion but calls herself a Catholic. She believes in same sex marriage and calls herself a Catholic.
A practicing Catholic.
The point? I want our Democratic colleagues to help DeVos win in this election so we can change Michigan Turn Around. We need brothers like Ken Harris, the CEO of the International Detroit Black Expo, to get on board with us fully. He calls himself a "Republicrat" and while that is a cute term of being an independent that will not cut the mustard in the long run. If you believe in those seven points I just outlined then why not be a Republican?
And I will ask the Michigan Young Democrats the same question. Why support Granholm when you don't know when your next check is going to come from? Have you made plans on how you are going to eat tomorrow other than ramen noodles and soup? If you go to a church like a Word of Faith where you KNOW your minister is a well-known Republican and teaches conservative values then why are you half stepping?
You cannot have conservative Christian values and then vote and support a Democratic Party that CONTRADICTS your belief system. If you are saved, sanctified, and delivered by the Holy Spirit and then vote for abortion and same sex relationships then you are spiritually confused. No matter how you spin the issue to me the bottom line is Jesus Christ. If you believe in HIM (Jesus) then why are you believing in HER (Granholm)?
