Hopefully that headline grabbed your attention. Sadly, it is true and no gimmick. The Department of Justice has ruled that a town in North Carolina is not allowed to remove party affiliations from all local ballots.
The Justice Department has overruled a small North Carolina city's attempt to end the use of party affiliation in local elections, according to a report in The Washington Times.
According to the article, the Justice Department ruled that party affiliations are needed in part to protect equal rights for black voters. The department determined that white voters in Kinston, N.C., would only cast their ballots for black candidates if they run as Democrats.
So who cares? What's the big deal? I'm sure Bush did stuff like this anyway, right?
This town in North Carolina voted to do away with party affiliations so that candidates would have to run on merit, ideas, and their own track-record. Novel idea, no? But that isn't good enough in Obama's America. Race MUST be involved in everything. The town in question is 2/3's black, which means that for this law to have passed in the first place, the same black people who allegedly wouldn't know who to vote for if there isn't a "D" in front of the candidate's name knew enough about what they want from their government to endorse this idea.
Also important to this story is the fact that the Obama Justice Department that spent its time worrying over this local issue in rural NC has been exposed as being racially selective in the issues it tackles.
So black militants who intimidate voters in Philly from casting their ballot for anyone but Barack Obama is a non-story, not worthy of the Department of Justice's time...yet a town of black voters deciding they do no want political affiliations to be placed on local ballots requires immediate attention and action.

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."
