New Political Though Vol.5

The reality is that both Democrats and Republicans have policy ideas that can benefit black folk if properly used. For example, President Bush's touting of an "ownership society" promoting home ownership can really benefit us. The way to build wealth in Western society is through owning property, and we need some serious wealth building. The emphasis on healthcare for all by Democrats without a doubt can benefit black folk, as long as the disparities in health care amongst class and race are addressed.

So amongst all the hoopla about liberal vs. conservative, left vs. right, Democrat vs. Republican, let us keep our eyes on the prize, and continue to fight for our mental and economic freedom. The ballot alone will not take us where we need to go; we must vote for the candidate that best reflects our interests with one hand, and rebuild our community with the other. We not only owe to ourselves, but we owe to our ancestors and our future generations. Now is the time for new political thought.
