I've listened to all the Republican Rhetoric in the recent primaries and hands down, we need a Republican Presidential Elect that isn't a career politician. We need a business man who knows how to turn a business around and get it back on it's feet. Our economy is all about business and only a businessman is going to get us out of this financial fiasco we are in now. Herman Cain has a pragmatic background and he is the only man who is smart enough to get this country financially back on it's feet . Please take ten minutes and read about the man. Go to youtube and watch him Challenge Bill Clinton on healthcare back in the 90s. Listen to what he has to say, and you too will realize CAIN in 2012 is truly the answer and not just the choice. I just donated to his campaign and I hope you do to. This is the first time in my life donating to any campaign too. $10,$20,$30 it doesn't matter. He needs more momentum. It was the $10,$20, and $30 donations that got Obama where he is today. Now that I think about it, any money towards Cain should really be considered an investment in the future and not a contribution .

I know I post some abstract shit on this board sometimes but, you have to realize, it is the internet and a lot of it is for shock value and it's always fun to stir the pot at least from my perspective....

CAIN in 2012.....we owe it to our kids!!
Thanks,
Wicky

I've been saying I like Cain the most for quite some time. He gave me a scare with the 9-9-9 plan but he explained it fully with the 9% consumption (not VAT like) and I'm back on-board. Dunno what the half-million + IRS employees, lawyers and accountants will do with a fair system.

They will find out they are an overpaid blight on society that creates a corrupt structure like Arthur Andersen. Less accountants = better business.

Cain in 2012???

I too am interested in the way Herman Cain says what he says.... However, there are some "magic words" that would seal the deal for me from any of the candidates...:

1. I will do everything possible to repeal obamacare ASAP..
2. I will NEVER grant any blanket amnasty to illegals.
3. I will push for a 6 month, ZERO tolerance, full effort, illegal roundup and deportation.
4. I will do whatever it takes to secure our borders, even if it requires a "state of emergency" and US troops deployed along our Southern border...
5. I will appoint a special prosecutor to dig into ALL the "shady" behavior of the previous administration.
6. I will push for a Social Security and Medical "fix" to preserve those benefits for future generations.
7. Add yours here.......

8. Manditory....teachers teaching government and American history must be proud Americans that have a proven track record in supporting the founding principals of this country....not liberals who protest and demand things because "it is their right under the Constitution"!

How "full effort" are you talking? Going onto job sites, onto the busses, into businesses, into government housing and even classrooms if necessary to root these invaders out? That's what it'll take, and as such that's what should be done. Anything less is completely unacceptable. Round 'em up, move 'em out.

And that ^ my friends tells the story of the performance of each presidency! In my lifetime, the greatest correction of American economy was during Reagan's tenure. It's rather telling that he had 86% of his cabinet from the business sector rather than the political world. The Kenyan's is also self explanatory.

Cain has less government experience than anyone as he has never been elected to any office. I find it strange that so many would vote for Cain while bitching about what little experience Obama has. Please don't make me go back and quote all of you that have said "Obama has no experience".
Anyways, this is all a moot point being that Cain is un-electable.
Romney 2012...Get on board now or face 4 more years of Obama!

Obama has no useful experience. He's never ran a business. That's what we are looking for, not career politicians that only know that life.

Romney does not understand seperation of Church and State and being a high powered Mormon, I will never vote his direction. Romney is full of Rhetoric. His politics are just that. Remember, Obama was un-electable too and looky looky we got a cookie!!
CAIN has pulled businesses from the grave and made them flourish. What is our biggest problem in our country right now? The economy correct? What is economics? Economics are all about business in which CAIN is by far THE most qualified over all other possibilities. I agree, we must all get on the same band wagon and the other candidates wont pull the independents. CAIN will pull the indys. The indys will laugh at Romney.

Cain aint pullin nothin but your chain. He is only in the race to deliver a message and to get the front runners to absorb some of his viewpoints. Other than that he is another Sarah Palin. In 3 months he will be out of the race when the all his supporters will put their cash on the only 2 serious candidates....Romney and Perry.
Oh, and no one on the Conservative ticket understand separation between Church and State. Remember, it was Bush (a non Mormon) who said God told him to invade Iraq. If you are having God direct the Military through the profit Bush, then there is a huge issue with separation between church and state no matter the religion. Why does God hate the Iraqies?
