I agree for the most part with Black America Web’s Gregory Kane’s assessment of the Congressional Black Caucus‘ insistence that President Obama do something specific for job growth in the black community.
Mr. Kane takes the position that the U.S. Constitution is a document compatible with a capitalist republic in his description of President Obama’s responsibilities for job creation and that the CBC may really be in need of a constitution that is compatible with a socialist democracy.
I agree that most members of the CBC may indeed want a socialist democracy since they rarely if ever promote capitalism or the free market as tools for getting black folk out of the job growth rut.
I would argue that the Constitution is compatible with a libertarian republic as opposed to a capitalistic republic. The freedoms pursued by a libertarian form of government are best carried out by an economic system based on capitalism.
That being said, if the CBC were to craft and promote policies that basically said, the best path to prosperity is based on independence rather than promoting dependency on government and perpetrating the “Obama as Messiah” myth, the CBC would be a credible organization.
