POLITICAL COMPETITION VS MONOPOLY

BY STACY SWIMP

Politics is no different than business. Competition is always in the best interest of those who are the “consumers” or targeted to support a party or candidates.

History, has taught us, furthermore, that monopolies inevitably take their customers for granted. In politics, monopoly tends to become tyranny.

Tyranny is what the Democrat Party has become to inner city communities, as a result of a monopoly created by the absence of political competition.  Poverty, blight, and hopelessness are all that tyranny can possibly produce. America‘s inner city bear witness to this truism.

“When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.”- Ezekiel 3:18

If conservatives refuse to even compete in inner cities, are we not somehow morally responsible for the results of the tyranny that has went unchallenged there?

I remain convinced that when Conservatives, at the very least, consistently compete in inner cities, no different than a business would among consumers, more minorities will start to “see the light” and embrace alternative political choices.

It makes no sense to complain about the monopoly of the Democrat Party when most Conservatives refuse to even challenge it in any meaningful way. Most simply whine and complain about what Democrats do and how minorities keep falling for the lies of the left.

No action usually follows the complaining.

Some are saying that it takes color to reach color or to compete for the vote or confidence of minorities. That is utter foolishness.

White Evangelists have went into China, Africa, and every nation proclaiming the gospel, as have Evangelists of various cultural groups. Their success was not contingent upon their cultural identity or the cultural identity of who they evangelized. Their success was totally dependent upon their faith and the nature of the information they sharing.

Thus, it is absolutely clear that it does not require that the messenger is a “minority” to compete in minority communities. It simply requires that messenger is an example of the values he or she pronounces. 

A retired, white police chief saved my life and became a mentor to me when I was yet a young 25 year old criminal. His entire career had been spent in the suburbs and rural areas. Nevertheless, when he came to the inner city I lived in and witnessed to me, he won me over. He did so with grace, love, and credibility.

He was credible by virtue of demonstrating his values to me in his lifestyle.

In effect, if we practice what we preach, it does not matter what color our skin is when we are competing for the confidence of any person or person(s).

In the final analysis, the best way to demonstrate to any demographic that their vote counts is to simply honestly compete for their vote. Not pander or abandon your values.

The question remains: are conservatives, are yet ready and willing to compete rather than merely whining and complaining about the Democrat monopoly in major minority communities?
