I don’t think 2 percent of Americans know anything about “business as usual” in the State Department.

I like that he speaks directly and with truth. I like it that he’s not a career politician and that he’s beholden to no one. Herman Cain doesn’t just speak about the American Dream, he _is_ the American Dream.

I am also truly enjoying how he twists the panties of the Establishment, left and right, and how they now, twitterpated and confused, grab at any any straw to discredit him.

Mr. Cain resonates with a huge class of moderate Americans who are infinitely tired of business as usual in Foggy Bottom. We may not be the noisiest chicks in the nest, but by God we vote.

Honkies For Herman 2012

The repub’s annointed man, Romney, will never see my vote, nor will my vote go to any person they attempt to force down the throats of the American voter in an effort to maintain their Republican establishment complicit status quo.

I want everyone with skin in the game. I want everyone to get up in arms every single time some idiot tries to raise taxes. Most people “know” corporations don’t pay enough in taxes, well most people are right. Corporations don’t pay anything in taxes, since corporations don’t actually keep any money. They pass it on to people, corporations aren’t real. So the people who control the corporations pass those higher costs/taxes in one of three ways, onto consumers (that is you), onto shareholders (that is your mother/father/grandparents pension), or take a pay cut. Hmm which are you going to do? That’s right pass that foolishness onto the idiots who thought you paid those taxes in the first place. Stop and think. Just because some college professor says this is how it works doesn’t make him right.

http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Cain- 9-9-9-tax-Laffer/2011/10/19/id/415005

Oops! A well-respected economist who says that his plan would create jobs!

“Laffer writes: “The whole purpose of a flat tax, à la 9-9-9, is to lower marginal tax rates and simplify the tax code. With lower marginal tax rates . . . both the demand for and the supply of labor and capital will increase. Output will soar, as will jobs.”

So much for your lie of “Every single economist”
You know who Art Laffer is, don’t you? He was on Regan’s economic policy advisory board from 81-88. He also coined the Laffer Curve.

Fail on your part

Go ahead and hit me with vitriolic responses but at the same time ask yourself the following question: Is this the best that we could do as Republicans. What an embarrassment to our cause.

What is important to the survival of this Republic as we have known it before obama began his Socialist/Marxist agenda is the elimination of obama as president by us the voters on November 06, 2012.

This just proves once and for all how completely brain dead Republicans are. Cain’s 9-9-9 plan has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by every single economist who has analyzed it to be a huge tax cut for the rich and a huge tax increase on the working poor, yet he has the most support of any of their candidates. The ignorance is incredible. All you middle class Republicans who are so eager to give more of your hard earned money away so you can make some CEO even richer should just send me a check instead. I promise I’ll create just as many jobs with it as the Bush tax cuts did.
