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.


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.
