    FreedomWorks Media Roundup: February 21st – March 4th, 2013

    03/04/2013
    The Content of Character

    Historian Carter G. Woodson, the father of black history month, hoped that eventually the need for this designated month would fade as black history became intertwined with American history. Indeed the once honorable intent of recognizing the many great achievements of black people throughout history has devolved into a tool used to patronize people who are falling further into the abyss of apathy and dependency. – Rev. CL Bryant, February 25, 2013, Read More

    Enough Keynesianism. Time for Tax Reform

    Policymakers in Washington have adopted a fundamentally Keynesian response to the Great Recession, but not all economists agree with the administration’s strategies for economic growth. In fact, many economists are more interested in addressing long-term economic problems that confound entrepreneurs and make business investment challenging. The best place to start may be the ossified federal tax code: roughly 74,000 pages of code, IRS rulings, and regulations fashioned together by high-powered lawyers and lobbyists who prefer to ply their trade in the halls of Congress, safe from market forces and the gales of creative destruction. – Wayne Brough, February 27, 2013, Read More

    Dr. King, Dr. Carson and the future of black America

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a stunningly courageous leader who fought valiantly for blacks’ constitutional rights. His leadership was based in sound principles and selflessness, and our country would be well served if today’s public figures followed his example.

    Sound leadership is especially needed in the black community, which is plagued by a litany of problems — unacceptably high unemployment, deplorable school dropout rates, staggering crime rates and a mentality that it’s the role of government to take care of people. – Deneen Borelli, February 28, 2013, Read More

    Deneen Borelli on Martin Luther King, Dr. Ben Carson and the Future of Black America

    Free market champion and modern day abolitionist Deneen Borelli has a new column out discussing the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, comparing him to Dr. Ben Carson the neurosurgeon whose verbal takedown of President Obama has been viewed over two million times online. In her article she writes about Carson: “His amazing success story is sorely needed in the black community to challenge the black liberal establishment’s messages of victimization, race-card politics and wealth redistribution.” She takes a direct stab at the race hustlers whose legacy in advancing civil rights fell far short of Dr. King’s. She goes on to say, “Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are masters at misleading their constituents. Making matters worse, they are not held accountable for their actions. They maintain their power and are financially rewarded by playing the race card and advancing big-government policies, as well as by promoting the false notion that blacks are victims in need of special treatment.” – Austin Petersen, February 28, 2013, Read More 

    FreedomWorks' Kibbe to President Obama: Am I Missing Something?

    Kibbe: "Only in Washington can the Democrats create a national hysteria over a spending increase that's just not as big as they had originally hoped." Following President Obama's press conference on the sequester savings set to take effect tonight at midnight, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said the following comment:

    "Listening to the President, you would think that the world is going to end tonight at midnight. Children wandering the streets unsupervised, abandoned borders, rancid food and planes at risk to collide in mid-air. – Staff, March 1, 2013, Read More

    Why Republicans Can’t Conquer the Hispanic Vote

    As an immigrant to the United States from Latin America, I am saddened as I watch Hispanics building political ties with the progressives in the Democratic Party. But I’m not surprised.

    The Republican Party’s future within the Latino community is looking dim. In the November presidential election, Mitt Romney scored only 27 percent of the Hispanic vote. A new Gallup report released last week concluded that Hispanics across all age groups will remain lopsidedly Democratic throughout their lives. – Ana Puig, March 2, 2013, Read More

    Chris Christie: The Enigma

    I can’t think of a more apt description of my home state leader, Governor Chris Christie, than “enigma.” It is neither a compliment nor detraction, but simply his political status. For every conservative step he takes forward, he takes two giant RINO steps backward.

    Governor Christie had been a breath of fresh air following New Jersey’s long line of failed leadership, from James Florio to Jim McGreevey to Jon Corzine, and his approval ratings are no mistake (an astonishing 74%).  Unlike his predecessors, there have been no stories of corruption, no testimonies before Congress, and he has not been embarrassed by failing to avoid a government shutdown. The state is proud to have a governor in the national spotlight finally making headlines for the right reasons. Well, most of the time. – Henry Graebe, March 3, 2013, Read More

FreedomWorks fellow Rev. CL Bryant writes in a column on TheBlaze contributors page that race and the uglier segments of American history should not be used as a tool for politicians to open up old wounds and reinforce a sense of entitlement, but rather inspire African-Americans to honor their predecessors’ by showing strong character and contributing greatly to society.
