Winning the Minority Electorate by supporting “The Minorities Education and Training Initiative”
? Can the Conservative be elected without Support of the Minority Population ?
The apparent answer for 2012 and future elections is a resounding NO.
How does the conservative reach out to minorities and earn their vote?
Can this conundrum be solved by getting the minorities interested in “The American Dream?” Is it as simple as putting them to work? Is the answer simply to give minorities a “Taste of The American Dream” by compelling them to be an integral part of the workforce? The minority population can certainly be trained to perform in a position that has decent pay with a chance for advancement. That is “The American Dream,” is it not?
Minorities are leaning “left” because they are under-employed due to their skill level. Proof of that fact is their unemployment rate of up to 39% (1) as compared to college graduates at 3.8% (2). (United States Bureau of Labor Statistics) They need the promise of financial protection that is currently afforded to them allegedly, only by the left.
Launch a program such as “The Minorities Education and Training Initiative” (A name I made up)
I have forwarded this suggestion to all Tea Party conservative electorate in hopes that one of them would draft a bill and put it forward to be passed by the congress. Dare the Senate oppose a program that will be monumentally beneficial to their constituents? Dare the President oppose a program that will be monumentally beneficial to his constituents?
Passage of the fore mentioned Bill will be a win / win for the conservative as it will instill a “Taste of The American Dream” in the minority population and that dream will compel minorities to abandon the dependency programs that promote Welfare, Food Stamps, Medicaid and the Unemployment Rolls
Then 50% of the newly empowered minorities will lean Left and 50% will lean Right just as the overall population. This will be a significant gain of support for conservatives, possibly enough to win all three branches of government.
Minorities are primarily God fearing people and are on the Right of most conservative social issues. Gaining their support will provide the backing that conservatives must have in order to promote our conservative values and to restore our government to its basic God fearing constitutional form.
This new initiative (program) needs to be a Non-partisan effort. The Left has not enthusiastically promoted this kind of idea as its success would dramatically reduce the magnitude of their constituent numbers. Our party and our country, the United States of America, will be the ultimate beneficiary. Some lefty will surely sign on.
It is imperative that this Initiative, following is passage, be billed and promoted as a Republican program thus eliminating all claims for credit of its success by the Left.
Finally, there is no end of Educational Programs that are on the books that have proven to be ineffective in this regard. This New Initiative should be designed to encompass many of the existing programs that work, cancel the ineffective programs and develop a path forward that will produce equality for all in the workplace.
Bottom line: Offer a variety of “Instructional Programs” followed by “Hands On Training” and Employment Assistance to all minorities. Programs can range from Vo Tech Training and On-line courses to College Degrees. Contact everyone on Welfare, Food Stamps, Medicaid and the Unemployment Rolls. Provide an incentive program that offers a 20% increase of an individuals subsidies for an A grade, 15% for a B grade and 10% for a C grade. Eventually set up a provision for receiving assistance based on proof of enrollment in a qualified program and on achieving a passing grade. Start promotion of this program by employing the internet and the social networks.
The pending recession would prompt conservatives to abandon any project that is cost intense however the alternative may prove to be more costly in terms of “The Promotion of Conservative Ideals.” There are sources of revenue to consider other than the federal budget.
Start by contacting a philanthropist. For example: The Education Deputy Director of the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” is Stacy Childres. One of her charges is to support Non Profit organizations that provide education for low income individuals. There are many billions available to the properly aligned institution
The Best of Luck in drafting and passing the proposed legislation. If I can be of any help contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
