Rants & Raves - February 28


I have read Rants & Raves for years and I have found Tifton has far too many people who only want to bellyache, complain, find fault and criticize. Is Tifton perfect? Absolutely not, but trust me, there are a lot of towns in South Georgia that are far worse places to live, work and raise a family. We have opinions? Certainly, but with free speech comes responsibility and respect for others, even if you don't agree with them. God loves us. So let's love each other. 
Yes there were good things that came from liberal legislation just as there was from the other side. A Republican put forth the Emancipation Proclamation and Republicans passed the Civil Rights Act. What is important is what each side is doing for the country now not in the long time past. The war on poverty was/is a miserable failure and has almost destroyed the black family in America and saddled coming generations with debt that will be almost impossible to pay back. Liberalism/Progressivism/Socialism has never worked anywhere!
I dare any of you liberal snake-oil salesmen hiding behind the Rant and Rave to write a letter to the editor and compare the qualifications and achievements of Ben Carson or Thomas Sowell with our current president who had no achievements prior to election and only failures since being elected. Present POTUS is all smoke and mirrors and no substance. Carson and Sowel are bright, articulate black men who escaped from the liberal plantation, so they are hated and villified.
Whooee! Let a good and decent black man like Ben Carson (he is a brain surgeon and came up with some of the greatest methods ever) not toe the liberal line and all of a sudden he has to be likened to Step-an-Fetchit. How racist you liberals really are. A black man is not allowed to be successful, smart and a conservative, but race hustlers with no achievements or sense are allowed to get rich playing the race card as long as they can keep their followers on the plantation and voting Democrat.
