    Elbert Guillory: "Why I Am a Republican" - YouTube!
    Free at Last’: La. State Senator Explains Why He Recently Left the ‘Government Plantation’ & Joined GOP in Powerful Video

    Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, formerly a Democrat, recently — and enthusiastically — joined the Republican party.

    Weeks after announcing his bold move, Guillory has released a video explaining why he is now with the GOP. The powerful video is titled, “Why I Am a Republican.”

    In the video, Guillory says it is the Republican Party that actually has the best interests of the black community in mind. He argues Democrats relentlessly push an agenda intended to exert control over blacks, not lift them out of poverty.

    “You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people,” Guillory said. “Somehow it has been forgotten that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.”

    The former Democrat explained that Frederick Douglass called Republicans the “party of freedom and progress.” He also pointed out that former Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and Republicans in Congress wrote the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.

    “The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow,” Guillory added. “It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”

    He went on: “You see, at the heart of liberalism, is the idea that only a great and powerful big Government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity.”

    Watch the video below:

    Guillory claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them.


    Further, the welfare programs haven’t even helped blacks at all as they are still “as poor as they’ve ever been,” he argued.

    “But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness, free from Government dependence, and free from Government control. Because to be truly free, is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny,” Guillory continued, pointing to God. “These are the ideas are at the core of Republican party… My brothers and sisters of the American community, please join me in abandoning the Government plantation and the party of disappointment.”

    “So that we may all echo of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last,” he concluded.

    Amazing things can happen when you open your eyes. But, unfortunately for Senator Guillory, the Republican party isn't what it used to be.

    From my viewpoint, going from Dem to repub is not that great of a leap any longer. As a country, we are famous for voting for the same parties everytime expecting different results...Not gonna happen.

    Under some circumstances I would agree with you. The significance is that he is a black state senator. He has seen what everyone else on here has been harping about for a long time. The blacks have willingly subjugated themselves to the Democratic party in exchange for a few warm fuzzies which, rather than help them up in the world, have further pushed them down. They have sold themselves into slavery and went to the highest bidder. Hopefully, he will be able to show blacks that they need to take control of their own future and not be a modern day "field hand."
