My choice for President.

My boss has been asking me who I think looks good for the GOP ticket. It had me thinking long and hard because the early favorites don't impress me at all. Basically my response has been "what GOP candidate. So far all they've had are RINO debates". There is one man I'm finding to be the only true conservative in this whole absurd debacle that is the Republican debates but doesn't seem to be getting that much attention. At least not of late, but after his huge upset in Florida, the mainstream populace will hopefully start giving the man more attention: Herman Cain. I'll go over the pros and cons.

Pros:

1) He tells it like it is. Any man that will come up and call Obama for the out and out liar that he is gains a lot of brownie points. After BO who lied that it's math not class warfare, Cain is the only one up there calling him on it. I've said we can't afford another RINO like Bush or else the country is finished and the fact the other candidates can't call it like he see it tells me they'll just play politics as usual. With Cain, we won't get the BS politic game from him.

2) He's got it right on the tax issue. He knows Obama's class warfare shot of how 80% of Americans want tax hikes was utter BS. It's that we need leadership. When you raise taxes, and that's all the dems want to do, tax and spend, it diminishes the activity you're taxing. At least at the levels we have now. Sugar coating with tax war fare with the fallacy if you double the rates you'll double the "revenue" is sheer nonsense and doesn't hold to historical facts. Especially during a recession.

3) He believes in leadership. When was the last time you saw leadership from the Presidency? It's been quite awhile. We sure haven't seen in congress in . . . heck, I don't know if I ever have or I've forgotten. It sure hasn't since January 20th, 2009 for everything from this current President has been no leadership, just bowing to enemies, apologizing for everything great about the country, and blaming everyone but himself for everything that has gone wrong which has been just about everything. If fact, Bush was terrible as well. The last time I saw any leadership from the Oval Office was after the attack on 9-11. After than, it's been all down hill. Cain knows Americans are starving for leadership. He has shown the most leadership while the others are still acting like kindergarteners feuding in the playground. This won't beat Obama.

4) He stands behinds facts. He doesn't believe in folding when the facts are behind you. We've been lead by BS and fantasy with number games with gimmicks and wishful thinking. He believes that if the facts are behind you, then as long as you stand by them, they will preserve. What does the other candidates believe in other than Obama is a terrible President (which the facts support)? They support so many ideas that aren't only not back in any facts, but continue on the same wishful thinking that has gotten us in this mess in the first place.

5) He's for limited government. The man is for shrinking the role of government. The government has grown, since 9-11, 40%. That's 40% in less than 12 years and still climbing at an exponential rate. He like to shrink the role. Though there maybe wishful thinking, especially if the GOP don't capture both houses and most likely would need 60 in the senate, but with him in there, the bleeding will definitely be slowed if not stopped as the tax and spender are going to get vetoed to death if they try to continue.

6) He doesn't believe in the ability of raising the debt. If you want one of the biggest contrast of Obama and the RINO Bush, this has got to be it. Obama has nearly doubled the debt and in less than 3 years. Cain doesn't want to have the ability to raise the debt. He compares giving Obama the means to raise the ceiling with giving a 6 year old a gun. I would add giving any politician such power, but he gets that having the means to continue to spend more than you take in is just a recipe for disaster. Something both sides, other than the tea party conservatives that are so vilified in the media, don't get. Compare that to the man that said "deficits don't matter".

7) He believes in representing his constituency over special interest. I hear a lot of pandering to special interest groups by the RINO's. The biggest being the illegal aliens and they're not suppose to be allowed to vote. Cain is rising in the polls lately and it's his responsiveness to the people and acting as a representive of THEIR interest instead of the party's or the special interest, like the big business that rely on overly cheap labor or the illegal aliens of late for the RINO's or the Unions and socialist groups like the gay mafia and Eco-terrrorists for the dems.

8) He's for common sense solutions, not politics. With all the interest of the insane and some down right evil special interest groups, a man that believe in common sense solutions rising in popularity and the polls be a surprise to you? Me neither.

9) He has disdain for the Media bias. This is where Bush's RINOism shined. When ever the media attacked him, he just let them without rebuttal and placated to their desires. What good did that do him? He ended up the most unpopular president perhaps in history (to that point). Cain knows the media is bias and doesn't care what they think. He figures, rightfully so, they're wrong on the facts and issues so will stand by the truth and common sense and let the media make fools of themselves.

10) Job number is defending the nation, not parasites. His first job, if elected, is to get a footing on national defense. That has become a bit of a joke since DHS was created by Bush and gone to the surreal with Obama. Bush and the leftist had everyone equally suspect as to not offend the Muslims, then with Obama, he suspects everyone but Muslims. They're getting passes while the rest of us get raped in order to fly, out borders are more open than ever with Holder (allegedly) providing the weapons, we're not even allowed to use Islamic terror as a term, so what the heck are we fighting against? Christian crusaders? Irish nuns seeking martyrdom? Girl Scouts sneaking in explosive cookies (there's a war there as well, but not the kind we're talking about here)? We're now not even allow to define who the enemy is. Let's not forget Obama cares more about entitlements and social engineering than his primary job of defending the people (unless they're black it seems).

11) He believes the engine of the economy is the business. His issue about removing taxes on repatriated profits is such a huge issue that gets very little play in the media and for good reason: it's why taking our jobs oversea is so attractive, other than the costs. You know that US is the only country in the world that tax oversea profits twice? If you invest in a business over seas (let's say you don't take jobs away from the US, you just open one in another country). When that business makes money, it's tax by the country where the business resides. If you should take some of that money and reinvest it here in the states, you get hit with another tax and it's the highest in the world at the corporate level. That's why business open up there, they can pay their taxes to their host country and then reinvest it there without another tax penalty. It's less expensive to first make it there, then sell it here and keep the profits there. That also is true if you make money in China and want to invest in India next. Why would anyone, except foreigners who are exempt from their countries, want to invest here?

12) He'll actually go on the Michael Savage show. Dr. Savage is hated by the LSM because he tells like it is or how he sees it. Anyone willing to go on his show can't be a true blue phoney, like say Perry.

13) He's Black. Ok, not to play the race card here, and I'm white, but I'm so sick and tired of the current president failures all being written off because of his skin color. The left has use the fact that he's black to get away, literally, with murder as any other President that had fast and furious would have his administration in handcuffs. Why not this one? You tell me. With Cain, the white hating bigots will show their true colors showing who the real bigots are as you can't contest Cain's position by attacking his race or using his race for any insane stances like executive privileged the current bozo enjoys. When all fails, you can no longer blame Bush or he's black.

14) He has business sense. This man started and franchised a pizza business that still is around today, so he know what business need to succeed. Unlike the theorist, and a miserably failed theorist at that, that reside. Cain have even got his hands dirty and made pizzas for living before opening the franchise. So he's done more literal work and have more business sense than the entire administration that hasn't done a lick of work other than walking onto and off campuses.

Now there are some drawbacks

1) His 9-9-9 plan. He wants to base tax rates at 9% for income, consumption, and corporate taxes. This is going to pose some real political headaches. His 9% fix tax isn't going to fly with either party as the working poor, even though they already pay, currently 5.65%, historically 7.65 percent. Zero for capital gains. Good luck with that. With the BS that is Wall Street, the public isn't going to let any of them keep any gains without giving something back He's a bit too cuddling to the rich at the expense of the poor. The reason why the amendment that gained the government the means to tax a person based on what they earned was because fix taxes like this was so devastating to the poor, especially the working poor. Same goes with the national sales tax. In CA where I live, we'll be paying nearly 20% extra on all consumable goods. We're taxed enough on consumption, we don't need any more. The only idea in his tax scheme that has merit is the elimination of the repatriated income. We're the only country in the world that does that and it's the main reason American companies are going over seas and staying there.

2) He's unknown. His biggest challenge, other than a lack of funds, is that he's unknown by the masses and the LSM sure isn't going to give Obama a competent opponent who's race they can't use against them.

3) He's politically nieve. He seems to have some abitious goals, but he reminds me a lot of Arnold during the recall election against Grey Davis. He has lofty goals as well, but he overlooked the challange of getting things through, especially in brain dead California, the legislature. Cain will have the same problem and it will be far worse for him with the Dems as it is for BO with the GOP. The Dem's always have and always will be the party of the slave master (just look at some of their 1870 political posters). They'll never do the bid of a conservative black man. You think Obama's race is encumbering his legacy, wait til this guy gets in. Unless a GOP house and 60 member senate is voted in, Cain will find life in the big chair isn't all it's cracked up to be getting political co-operation.

4) He's a mathematician. Bet nobody knows he's got a degree in math. Once this gets out, people are going to become apprehensive. I know as people treat me like some either freak or arrogant jacka$$. One of the biggest frustration for me is people tend to apprehensive of me as they think that I know it all (God knows, I know enough to know I don't know) or they're beneath me for my high IQ and math savvy. At least til they need a math tutor. I fear this prejudice will stick to him.

Given what's at stake, given the survival of the Republic, Cain is the only one with some sense and brains, but the public in the past tends to disdain such attributes. Go ask a math teacher as math is the most hated subject in polls, even among adults. However, this man can think and reason. More than I give the entire political machines right now and most of the voters. Math is a tough, mind straining discipline. It's not for the feeble minded, yet this man has endured. We'll get a president that can think critically, with reason, and with some sense, especially when it comes to the economy. I truly fear for the survival of the Republic and I have no faith in the current government or the voters themselves who are just as corrupt. Cain is the only one that would instill hope that you can believe in as it will at least be based on some reason other than slogans and theoretical class warfare or social engineering. Since Regan left, our Presidents have gotten progressively worse than the predecessor. Cain will be different as far as the thinking at the top level, and I for one going to have some faith for once we can stop going the leftist and socialistic course than we've been going. That is hope and a change I can believe in.

Obama is at it again.

For one to list the complete and utter failures of this pathetic pResidency, you would need a book about 4 inches think. Foreign policies, has the logic of a Spongebob cartoon and is a complete and utterly confusing mess that God almighty couldn't reorganized to anything coherent. The economy is a mess and Obama's policies have just done nothing but throw gasoline on an open flame in its destruction going from 6% unemployment to constantly hovering between 9 to 10 percent. He's on pace to double the national debt going from 40% GNP to over 100% and still climbing. All that hoopla over raising the debt ceiling and they blame the Tea Party for it's disaster and encumbering his celestial solutions despite the ceiling being raised the most since its inception. Social issues are reaching a breaking point as the balcanization of the citizens are reaching the point of violence with the now unpunished black flash mobs and the unflinching Islamic caliphate demands like those in Dearborn. So much for being an uniter. He's shredded the constitution with his executive orders and his non "kinetic actions" of the military. Now, with his infinite wisdom (please stop laughing), he's now going to shine his glowing light on the education sector.

Anyone with a brain knows that education in this country has become a laughingstock of the world. We're pretty much dead last against industrial nations in every category, especially math and science. Heck, we're pretty far down competing against 3rd world countries. Now Obama thinks, as usual with all liberals, throwing more money at the problem is the solution. Perhaps one should look at Obama himself as a prime example why the education system is the disaster that it is, especially with college educated members.

BO thinks that the school are too decrypted and underfunded. Many of the buildings are over 30 years old, about 70%. Many do need repairs. However, these are suppose to be state issues, not the federal. I maintain you can modernized all the schools and it won't to a lick of good for one simple reason: racial and class warfare. If you want to get to the heart of why the education system is a mess, go into a classroom and listen to what's regurgitated. Actually, I should say the schools are failing in such that they're failing to educate to think critically and to teach the fundamentals of reading, writing and arthritic. Having been a teacher once, I can tell you, if you read previous posts, the education system is excellent in what its true prime directive is: promoting racial and class warfare. Go into a classroom and most students won't have a clue about history, science, English (but Spanish and many other foreign languages, that's another story), math, social studies, but sex (they know enough to make brothel workers in Nevada blush), drugs, affirmative action, civil rights, class warfare, they are complete experts.

Obama thinks we can become competitive again by making our schools more "modern". The problem is the more money that is thrown to the liberal unionized government owned and protected monopoly of public education (if we all could afford private education, I would include they have competition, but they can't so I won't. That's why vouchers are so popular, but the ignorance masses are educated to fear them.) will allowed the school to afford the "resources" to properly educate the masses. What foolishness. This is too typical of socialist liberals. They think it's a lack of toys, teachers, classrooms, etc. that is the cause of the dysfunction. Despite spending the most per student in the world, we produce at this current time perhaps the most stupid of citizens. Pouring more money into it will just yield more stupid. Obama wants to treat the symptoms of a larger problem: the disdainment of education. The primary reason education is so terrible is the entitlement mentality has made education valueless. Why get educated when you can get welfare? Why get educated when you can have Section 8? Why get educated when you can have food stamps? Why get educated when you have affirmative action? Why get educated when you can spew vulgar mindless rap, sell drugs, or get a government job that don't require you to actually be productive? Why get educated when you can sue for violating your civil rights to not be productive? Heck, we don't even require they know how to put their pants on correctly. Education isn't valued, especially those protected minorities as they're entitled to entitlements if they fail to get educated. Heck, many find being educated as being racist. How many times I was being accused to violating their civil rights and threaten with a lawsuit because I tried to discipline them for being "too black" or "too Hispanic"?

As I've stated before, two court rulings have doomed education and til they're repealed, will continue to keep this slide going: No prayer and every child is entitled (even illegal aliens) to a public education. The prayer isn't bringing down the schools as we have taken God out of the school. You want separation of "church" and state, fine. What that ruling did was take away any value system out the school. There is no right and wrong any more, just shades of gray, so if a gang banger wants to create havoc, it's their right. The teacher will take the blame for his lack of progress. What kind of discipline system can you have if all values and attitudes are equally right? The 2nd ruling is the one that continue the slide. Since every child is entitled to an education, that will include those that don't want one. Liberals can't get it through their thick skulls that you can't educate an unwilling subject. They still believe the lie that every child wants to learn. That's the first thing they teach you when you enter a teaching credential program and they propagandize that throughout the whole program as if they're trying to convince themselves, not the student teacher. You can, as one stupid idiot stated at one of these teacher union protests, pay a billion dollars per student. You're just going to get a billion dollars worth of stupid.

Obama himself, a man that has passed through life from benefiting not from excellence, I don't what anyone says, he's a moron! He's not a smart man what so ever and yet everyone continues to state he's the smartest man in the room. What scares me is that they're right which doesn't say much. Minorities are often passed without knowing anything because they don't want to learn or just plain don't care because of social promotion. A sugar coated form of affirmative action and then are shocked they don't know anything and can't pass their college classes (let's face it, they're going to get in if they want rather they have the grade or not) but are given passing grades as to avoid lawsuits. Obama himself has actually the first job in his life where he's actually expected to know something and figure out solution and will finally be held accountable. This is why his poll numbers are so horrible. He hasn't produce one solution and everything he touches turns to poop. Though I think the destruction of American is deliberate, I'm convince it's his advisors that are the brains of the operation, not him and now, they have no idea what to do at this point. Not without admitting the truth and that will destroy the whole party.

So with entitlements and affirmative action, there is no real reason for those that are doing poorly to improve. They're going to be "taken care of" regardless and then they're the one doing the complaining when it doesn't work out. As long as we have no value system, no real consequences for failure, allowing those that don't want to learn to disrupt and pollute the system and passing them a civil right, we can throw all the money in the world at it. The education will continue to fail.

Just when BO start to shows he finally gets it, he doesn't.

Obama for the first time that I can remember, or so long between correct course of action that I can't remember, had done something right and surprised me. The what would be the final nail in the coffin of any more job growth in the evil and destructive Gaia worshiping EPA emissions standards has been nixed. Now will any of this is to remain in effect when 2013 comes should by the worse miracle in US history, or should I say curse, that this president get re-elected will remain to be seen. As for now, business interests have a 15 month reprieve for now. I was beginning to think that he actually grew a brain and started to get that if his oppressive policies goes into effect and creates a depression that we're so teetering on (though I believe we're in it and it's just not reported as such), it will finish him off as well as his party. As long as the illusion that things are turning around, he can attempt to bamboozle the people into thinking he's doing something constructive. Regardless, the right thing was done.

Then he goes and proves me right that he still doesn't have a clue about rebounding the economy. He wants to pass a jobs bill, if you want to call it that, that FDR would be proud of: infrastructure reconstruction. Though I agree we do need to revamp our crumbling infrastructure, I find a few things wrong and lacking. First, he doesn't mention who will do the work. If it's the public workers with their unionized workers, then no thanks. I see how well Caltrans works here, and I truly believe these people are given IQ tests and the bottom 10% are the only ones allowed to work for the state agency. Take a look at the shoddy work as California's roads are ranked the worse by AAA and their surveys. The poor work they do and how much of bureaucracy they truly are. When I was returning from my Disneyland trip back to Sacramento, we were making good time on I-5 and then I hit Elk Grove and 18 miles of Caltrans work. Only thing, only 1/2 of a mile was being worked on, so I couldn't make my destination for 17 1/2 miles because they wanted to get in the way and flex their muscles I guess. One thing for sure, they weren't working on that part of the road. What's worse, take a good time to observe what goes on at these sites, and it's hard not to notice since you're not actually being able to move, more than 4 out of 5 workers aren't doing anything but standing around or doing perfunctory duties. I have to wonder how much above the private sector worker who would be fired for such laziness and inefficiently, not to mention the backlash for delaying the working class by blocking off so much unnecessarily, are they being paid better? Given how much of a big government and union bed buddy Obama is I don't hold much hope of funds going to bidding private companies.

Let's suppose by another major miracle, that Obama has a bidding war by the private sector and funds are rewarded for the infrastructure work, one, where is the money going to come from, and 2, this more or less addresses the symptom not the cause of the recession: government intrusion. As much as I like to see the private sector back to work, our current state of fiscal decadence isn't able to support such a project. At least not while we're giving so much in handouts and entitlements. However, it shows how Obama continues to believe that government is the solution, not the problem. It's more government projects, government stimulus that didn't work before, more bigger government. Should the economy be recovering and these are addressing the needs for the growing economy, then I would say go for it as long as it going to the private sector and not the incompetent public labor and their unions. If it was for a supporting role, perhaps this would make sense.

When you get to the bare bones of the issue at hand as far as the job creation demand for the economy, Obama is pumping up his government is the end all for all things and has no real investment for turning things around and allowing the market to recover and let it grow and stimulate us out of this recession. It's more socialistic big government WPA programs and this explosion of government is why, as Reagan state it best, "government isn't the solution to our problems, government IS the problem" and we will still continue to struggle for economic and job growth. Until Obama learns that, and there's no reason what so ever that he ever will since it goes contrary to everything he believes in, we will continue on this road to stagnation and until he or any other leftist radical is out of white house and are a minority in the congress, none of that is going to change.
