The conservative blogger in Virginia opines about Republican Party outreach: "I do not wish to point out that the GOP needs to purge irresponsible generalities from its vernacular; there is plenty of commentary about that. I prefer to talk about what outreach means. While not every African American needs government to survive, the GOP must answer the question of how those people who are in need would survive if programs are to be cut. Unlike when Mitt Romney fumbled over his poor and safety net comments, the GOP has to make it clear that 1) conservatives want to lead in empowering those that are in need to move from consuming tax dollars to producing them, 2) conservatives believe that most African-Americans that are in need do not want to be and 3) the 'big 3' – Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid – will bankrupt the nation and the insolvency of those programs will affect those that are in need worse and sooner."
He continues his commentary: "There is a myth that all who vote Democrat are dependent on government in some form and are willingly dependent; this myth must be eliminated from any GOP approach to outreach. If the GOP is to truly attempt outreach, there has to be a dialogue to understand what the true needs of minority communities are, not just 'hip hop' a message that does not address the needs of those communities. We have to discuss how people with no healthcare will get care. We must discuss how truly educating kids – not worrying about saving school administrations – will lead to ending generational legacies of government dependence. Conservatism holds the answer to prosperity for all communities. The key need is someone with the commitment and eloquence to express this vision without giving in to so many negative stereotypes."
