Mitt Romney's Speech to the NAACP

The presumptive GOP nominee for President of the United States gave a speech at the NAACP convention yesterday. I thought the speech was substantive and addressed the issues that the vast majority of African Americans should be concerned about: economic and educational opportunities.

Isn't it about time that African Americans stopped putting all their eggs in one basket? Yes, that means that realizing that the more you vote for a party that only promises you more government programs to solve your problems, the less free you will be and the more you will be beholden to the agenda of the statists, whose main goal is to get you hooked to government handouts so that you will keep voting for them. Once the statists get you on the hook for handouts, you will then be impotent to fight back against their other agenda that you may or do not approve of. A case in point: Obamacare! If Obamacare was intended to be a sound healthcare reform, it would have been done incrementally, responsibly (not as an experiment on 313 million people) and with the support of a large majority in Congress.
