State Sen. Elbert Guillory explains his defection from Democratic party to Glenn

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The Democratic party of today is wildly different than it was during the days of JFK. President Kennedy dared people to ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country’ but today the left is all about what the country can do for you. This mentality hasn’t sat well with State Senator Elbert Guillory for quite some time, and after a conversation with his 103 year old mother he decided it was time to switch from the Democratic Party to the Republican.

“The Democratic party in Louisiana just continued to move father and farther away from basic American values and farther away from the voters of Louisiana. And much farther away from me. So I just couldn’t take it anymore. And recently, there was some comments made in the Senate, the comments were that if anyone opposes what we frequently call Obamacare, if anyone opposes it, they do so only because the President is an African-American, and therefore, that position is racist. My mother, who’s 103 years old, called me on the telephone when she heard that. She said ‘Boy, I don’t want you to be involved in anything like that. I hope you disassociated yourself from that’ and I was on the verge of doing it anyway, and that was just the last straw,” he said.

When asked how to break people out of the cycle of continuing to vote for Democrats that are instituting policy harming the country and especially poor communities, Guillory said the answer was a monumental change in education.

Guillory explained that you have to convince poor people who live on welfare to “get off the government plantation”. He said they are being enslaved by getting just enough from the government to get by but not enough to rise up out of poverty.

“We have to convince people that the handouts – just taking a few little handouts, where you have a subsistent living, where you never grow, just get a little check and a few food stamps, it will keep you on the plantation for the rest of your life, that’s not a life. That’s not living. It is not good enough. It is not acceptable. We have to educate our people that that is no longer good. You have to get off the plantation, off the government plantation,” he said.

    “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.” Abraham Lincoln I think Senator Guillory is coming from that line of thinking.

    Then why have Democrats been making massive gains among Hispanic voters over the past half dozen years?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXuNPBko3Q Sam Fisher

    Only because you liberals are their slave masters. All you liberals see them as a voting block sure you pretend to care but don’t. You don’t care that big companies are paying them pennies an hour. You liberals don’t give a damn about the sex slaves being traffic up here. Why can I say this is because you idiots refuse to close the broader and actually fix the immigration system. As long as you liberals give them free stuff they will be your pets. I am sorry but they are human beings not voting robots for you liberals to use a throw aside like a used car.

    Illegal immigrants can’t vote. Democrats are the ones who support raising the minimum wage so who really supports paying them pennies an hour? Besides, if you cared about the trafficking, you’d make it so that illegal immigrants who end up being victims like that don’t risk deportation when they report it.

    really? illegals can’t vote? then explain obama’a re-election. and do you really expect us to have sympathy for illegals when you/they cry:”human trafficking”? they have only themselves to blame. no one is holding a gun  to their heads to cross the mexican/us border illegally. they are ‘victims’ by choice. cry me  a river.

     You are correct the illegal immigrants are not allowed to vote, but are you sure that they are not voting?  There are too many states that do not require photo ID to vote giving an illegal the ability to vote.  I feel that is the way Pelosi keeps getting elected in her San Francisco district.

    It’s San Francisco, you could eliminate every single Hispanic from voting and Pelosi would still win comfortably.

    Obama got more votes than Romney. The outcome pretty much exactly matched what the RealClearPolitics poll of polls was and Nate Silver got every state right based on analyzing what the polls were saying.

    Sam talked about sex slaves being brought up here for trafficking so I assume at least he cares about it.

    it’s astonishing how sen. guillory lasted as long as he did in that muck on the left.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXuNPBko3Q Sam Fisher

    But you liberals make sure they can by trying to make voter ID laws racist. Gee you think that human trafficking will not happen if oh I don’t know close the damn broader oh wait preventing it all together is way to racist. I also notice you ignore the fact you using illegals as slaves to do jobs you too lazy to do yourself.

    Democrats taking advantage of the new immigrants to replace those long ago forced here against their will.

    We have a voter registration card to show at our polling places in my country, plus they ask for my drivers license.  I feel very good about that – I know everything can be made illegal and the immigrants can still vote, any maybe that is what they did.  When the money runs out and they can’t get every penny out of America they are used to – see how fast they get back across the borders and head home.  They are just being enticed to come here anyway for the vote.  Obama could care less about them just the vote.

    I certainly agree with Senator Guillory, and oh how he is refreshing.   What an honorable man.  I would vote for him or support him in any changes he wants to make.  God is on the Christian side and will protect us, but we have to be willing to turn everything over to him.  We cannot take everything into our hands for we need him (God) he will provide for us.

  • Alexandra Schoonover

     Some people even allow their ballot to be used by another person. It’s called voting by proxy.  Ex., Jay is lazy; He doesn’t want to vote, so he allows his illegal immigrant uncle to fill in the preferences he wants on the mail-in ballot form. All Jay does is sign it. Isn’t that sad?

    Now, if only this senator will take it one step further and try to educate his community on how damaging Planned Parenthood is to the black race. Margaret Sanger wanted clinics put in low income, black communities. It was and is about eugenics. The only difference is that nowadays, the blacks are selling the propaganda to themselves. They need to wake up and realize that the Democratic Party and Planned Parenthood are not their friends,  but rather their enemies. Far more black babies are aborted than white. What does that say???

    “The Democratic Party of today is wildly different than it was during the days of JFK. ”

    Wow, coming from Beck’s team; that’s an astounding bit of propaganda. Thanks to Glenn Beck and his Tea Party backers, the Republican Party of today is wildly different than it was under Eisenhower who had the interstate hiway system built and defended Social Security and unemployment insurance.

    Telling the whole story is what a pundit does. Telling the story that distorts the whole story to persuade people is deceitful propaganda, Glenn Beck’s forte.

    “Far more black babies are aborted than white. What does that say???”

    It says that you have no idea what you are writing about. Beck preys on the ignorant, and it’s clear that when it comes to race and abortions, you are very ignorant. Get the facts:

    Your view on Planned Parenthood and eugenics is also about 70 years out of date.

    BECK PREYS ON THE IGNORANT!

    This is not the freedom-loving, patriotic Democratic party of my WWII Naval father !!  I abandoned the Demos before Obama — ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with race, everything to do with AGENDA. Can you imagine anyone voting in the next election for BIG-MOUTH BIDEN, or HIDE-AND-LIE HILLIARY ?? Am not a sold-out Repub, but lean much more toward Constitution Party, Libertarian Party, or even Tea Party.  ALMOST ANYTHING BUT THE DUMMYCRATS ! !  I knew I made the right decision when the Dummy Convention had the unmitigated gall to “Vote on whether to leave GOD out of the vernacular”  — He must have been so pleased when they decided to leave Him in (though clearly the vote indicated otherwise) !!!!!

     I suggest you read Ron Radosh’s book “Commies.”

    Margaret Sanger, the founder of PP, was a nazi-sympathizer and eugenics proponent.  She had particular disdain for people of color and referred to them as “human weeds.”  The founding roots of PP are based on racism and eliminating what she perceived as the unfit, including homosexuals.  PP still targets the black community today, and Mr. Beck is correct that the abortion rate among black people is much higher than white.  Please get informed before posting.

    The same thing has happened in Canada to aboriginals- the left leaning parties NDP and liberal parties have provided everything free to them including welfare cheques to win their votes and it
    has left the aboriginals with broken familes, uneducated, poor,dependent on government…  the leaders of these socialist parties live like kings But they care about the poor?? No different than the wealthy kennedy’s, pelosi’s,reids, obamas  “hypocritical dictators” senator Guillory is
    absolutely correct  I would rather die than be a slave to these dictators.

    This gentleman is a rare breed. Most humans, black or white, will stay on the plantation as long as they are getting maximum benefits with minimum effort. Don’t look for Guillory’s move to change the mentality of the welfare crowd or government employees. He is VERY rare–sadly.

  • rusty53

     Anyone who thinks illegals are not voting is an idiot. Anyone who doesn’t know that they vote for democrats so they can get more “free” stuff is in complete denial of reality. The only thing liberals are good at is brainwashing simple minded fools.

  • Roy Elsworth

    why not use id cards for voting us canadians use it and it seems to work good infact we can’t vote without it. and we think nothing of it
