"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." These were the word written by the German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in his book "Beyond Good and Evil". Although he died in 1900, it would seem that perhaps his wisdom is much needed today. the NAACP is pushing hard on the envelope against the possibility of the Tea party making a difference in the November elections by bringing charges of racism without first looking at their own back yard. The New Black Panther Party seem to be the the monster with in the NAACP's family yet it gives no mention to condemn what is happening with in its own party before attacking another. The New Black Panther Party(BPP)has made open racist remarks from its leadership such as the current leader Malik Zulu Shabazz who is considered by the Anti-Defamation League as "the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist black militant group in America". Yet we hear no distancing from this party from the NAACP. One begins to wonder why until one follows the money. According to Wikipedia the NAACP spent in excess of 10 million dollars in the 2008 election to get Obama elected. That consisted of tax exempt dollars that the NAACP collected from its membership to put democrats into office through through various means including project vote. It also was used to fight against the showing of a state issued ID at polling places which again makes one wonder how involved they might have been in another of the recipients the Acorn Group. The Acorn Group was responsible for voter registration and according to fact check dot com there are thousands of fraudulent voter registration forms submitted by Acorn just in the state of Indiana. So again money spent by the NAACP as part of the Get Out the Vote campaign. However when a program was set up for an ID check there were scream of racism from these very groups including the NAACP. The IDs were given out for free, it was just a measure to ensure one person one vote. However this was labeled as racist. When Fox News failed to raise Obama up like a god of old and were criticizing him like any other president was criticized in the past, again the cry of racism. Now a party of everyday people, each party different from the other with no and I mean no real organization between parties or across state line to speak of begin to speak out against TAXATION, it is racism. It would seem that taxes are a neutral subject that might attract across party and race. The desire for control on government spending has become to great a threat to the political investments the organization NAACP has made, not the membership but the leadership. The monster the membership are looking for might well be closer then they think. They may only have to look to the leaders they have in place and ask where is the money we spent? How much good could have been done with-in the membership with 10 million dollars? How many schools could have been brought up to standard or beyond? It is not about the greater good but about power, power through politics and like it or not racism has nothing to do with it, it is pure greed and want. The abyss is staring at us and we created it ourselves to protect us from the monsters we perceived, but now the only monster looking back is us. The time has come to put aside the fear, the greed, the things that make us childish and petty and step up and take our position in the government by voting for a third party without fear and with confidence. The only way for this to research all the candidates yourself and vote for the candidate you choose not those chosen for you.
