Black conservative congressional candidates need our support
By James Lambert

With far-left Democratic Congressional members dominating the Black Congressional Caucus, wouldn't it be nice if a number of Black conservative congressional candidates win election this November? It could very well happen!

There are some excellent black conservative Congressional candidates that are running for Congress this fall. They include: Star Parker (CA. — Dist.37) www.StarParkerforCongress.com , Adam West (FL. — Dist.22) www.AllenWestforCongress.com , Michael Faulkner (NY. — Dist. ), www.FaulknerforCongress.com , Ryan Frazier (CO.- Dist. 7) www.FrazierforColorado.com and Charles Lollar (MD.- Dist. 5) www.LollarforCongress.com to name a few. Timothy Johnson, Chairman and Founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation said yesterday, that's its "an incredible time in our nation's history — to have 13 strong black Republican candidates running for Congress ... The only time since Reconstruction when more than 1 black Republican was serving in Congress was in 1995 to 1997." [Other African American Republican candidates include Stephen Broden (TX. — Dist. 30), Isaac Hayes (IL.- Dist. 2), Bill Randall (NC. — Dist. 13), Marvin Scott (IN.- Dist. 7), Tim Scott (SC.- Dist. 1), Chuck Smith (VA. Dist.- 3), Bill Marcy (MS.- Dist. 2) and Charlotte Bergmann (TN. — Dist. 9).

I believe it is important for all of us who considers ourselves as conservatives or espouse themselves in believing in conservative principles, to financially support these refreshing new candidates. It's clear that if any of these candidates are elected in November, they would cause quite a stir on Capital Hill. Democrats have long felt uncomfortable in dealing with conservatives from the African American community. Nevertheless, there are still many areas around the country where black churches and conservatives have had a strong influence in their communities.

For a long time, liberals and Democrat Party operatives have considered it slanderous to support conservatives from inside the black community. I have long been offended by liberals who have belittled these courageous Americans. While their numbers may be small, these conservatives refuse to be the standard bearers of many of the lefts standard causes (like abortion, affirmative action and big government).

I have personally witnessed a 'dress down' by fellow Democrats of a Bible believing City Councilman who regularly stood against the tide of indecency and corruption in his community. I had the deepest admiration for this local politician who consistently held to his deeply held, moral convictions.

One only has to go back to the Clarence Thomas in the early 1990s when his Supreme Court justice hearings were being held to understand what I am talking about. The personal 'lynching' that Thomas endured that month as evidenced by prejudicial and inflammatory questions and jabs by Democrat Senator's (Joe Biden, Patrick Leahy to name a few) was deplorable. Liberals on that Senate judicial committee must have been saying to themselves, 'how can an African American male really have a conservative world view?'

If these Republicans win this November, it would be refreshing for Americans to be able to see these fresh, courageous and principled conservatives from inside the African American community serving their constituents from a whole new prospective. Any one of these candidates who win this fall will share the same trait: they will no longer be 'enslaved' by the whims and the dictates of the Democrat National Committee.
