Political Endorsements Coming After The Edgecombe County Candidates Forum Sponsored By Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission

I will be posting my political endorsements after the candidates forum on Tuesday April 22. I will be endorsing candidates from across the state that I feel should be elected and re-elected. Although I may not be able to vote for some, some will still represent me. Also I have family and friends in neighboring counties and across the state so therefore I will be keeping up with some races outside of Edgecombe County.

I look forward to seeing the citizens of Edgecombe County but not limited to at the Tarboro NC: You’re Invited To The “2014 Meet the Candidates Forum” on Tuesday.

Boston Globe endorses Barack Obama over former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney

The Boston Globe’s editorial board this morning said President Obama deserves a second term, opting not to back the Republican nominee and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

Since its first presidential endorsement – for Hubert Humphrey in 1968 – the Globe’s editorial page has always supported the Democrat running for president. But it has also never denied its endorsement to a home-state candidate, supporting Michael Dukakis in 1988 and John Kerry in 2004. (More)

New York Times Endorses President Barack Obama – New York Times

The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans’ rights are cheapened by the right wing’s determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged. (More)

Republican Senator, Vietnam Veteran Endorses President Obama

As a combat veteran of two tours in Vietnam with twenty-two years of service as a Republican member of the U.S. House and Senate, I endorse President Barack Obama for a second term as our Commander-in-Chief. Candidates publicly praise our service members, veterans and their families, but President Obama supports them in word and deed, anywhere and every time. (More)

“I Have No Permanent Friends, No Permanent Enemies Only Permanent Interest!”

That being said I am going to continue to piss some folks off from this day forward and I will not be apologetic for speaking truth. However if I can be proven wrong I will apologize so I challenge you, you and you to try me.

Yes I am a black man but I am not so damn black that I am “IGNANT” to my knowledge of politics and people. I know who the players are the real leaders and those who play both sides. Those who play both sides get in an all black meeting and say one thing and then get in a meeting with black, brown, white and others in the same room and they say something different. Well I don’t roll like that. I am the same in all meetings because I don’t play both sides.

JUSTICE

“I’M FOR TRUTH NO MATTER WHO TELLS IT. I’M FOR JUSTICE, NO MATTER WHO IT IS FOR OR AGAINST. I’M FOR A HUMAN BEING, FIRST AND FOREMOST, AND AS SUCH I’M FOR WHOEVER AND WHATEVER BENEFITS HUMANITY AS A WHOLE.” Malcolm X

I posted articles on my blog for folks before the filing period and after. So now we are past that they will not have to guess where I stand. I will be stating who I will be voting for and who I would vote for if they were on my ballot. I ain’t telling others who to vote for just making them aware who I am voting for.

I can’t wait to see the slate of candidates that the Nash-Edgecombe Black Political Caucus who drop the black off when they speak so they can play not only both sides but all sides black, brown, white and other, Democrat and Republican. I also can’t wait to see other pacs endorsements and individual endorsements. You hardly ever see individual endorsements because many of the so-called mover and shakers play both sides. Well when folks pass by my yard it is clear by the signs that are displayed and by reading my blog.

Let the “POLITICS” begin.  Are you ready to “RUMBLE?”

Breaking News: Herman Cain endorses Newt Gingrich – The Washington Post

Response: When I think about “Big Daddy Cain” this is what comes to mind, "Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!" Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Businessman Herman Cain threw his support to Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich late Saturday.

The move by the former GOP candidate and tea-party favorite comes three days before the Florida primary, at a moment when Gingrich is badly in need of something to rekindle the momentum he gained in the wake of his South Carolina primary victory. (More)
