This is a great speech from Herman Cain at the Values Voter Summit. As someone on twitter said, they lost count of how many standing ovations Cain got during the speech.

Here’s the full speech:

          I guess voting for TARP qualifies you as a conservative. And then, if that doesn’t do it, “Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem” or “The free market purists’ objection to this is that it smacks at government control of the banking industry, which is called nationalization. They are correct. It smacks, but it is not nationalization because that would require the government to own at least 51 percent of the entity for an indefinite period of time” could. But hey, I’m just a Ron Paul fan, right? No, that’s right–I dislike him.

            LB your conservative comment is very true since the misinformation comes from the GOP. One is we want Small Government meaning No regulation! Thats why people are protesting since Wall street has stolen Billions. Loehman 539 Billion dissapeared 4 days after they declared bankrupcy, and all the brokers shorting the market.

              “No regulation” is not possible…unless you want anarchy. #2, the dems are masters at Mis and Dis information.”People” are protesting because they are professional protestors, probably living off mommy and daddy, and are part of the “entitlement” generation. Wall Street doesn’t steal billions, your “Gubmint” steals trillions..and it was their screwing with the private marketplace that started this whole mess! You don’t want to buy a certain product, fine, but the hypocrites at the protest are just that, hypocrites,…except the ones living naked in caves! Small Gubmint is NOT no regulation…it is a Gubmint LIMITED as it should be..by the Constitution. The protestors, are, as Lenin so succinctly put it…”Useful Idiots”…as they are being used…I don’t think the whole lot of them could come up with one comprehensive thought that made sense!

            • Anonymous

              Government has stolen trillions!!!! No one, repeat, no one is suggesting no regulations. They are suggesting common sense, something the left seems to lack. What’s most interesting to me about OWS, is they are the grandchildren of the Hippies from the 60’s, remember free love, down with the establishment, their grand parents are in fact leading Wall Street.

          voting? Hmm. I don’t recall that he’s ever held political office.

          • http://twitter.com/conservative__ conservative

            Voting, supporting. Whatever. If you look at his record, he ran for senate in 2004.

            Interestingly enough, had he won–he’d have voted of TARP clearly. So, hey, there’s that too..

            Look I’m not trying to start any harsh feelings here, but it’s a little interesting that at the moment I bring up he isn’t a conservative because he “supported” TARP I am bashed as: A) A “Ron Paul fan” B) A liberal thug.

            • http://www.therightscoop.com/ The Right Scoop

              a drive-by comment that Cain isn’t a conservative is what gets you ‘bashed’.

              I’ll say this out front: I’m sorry for calling you a liberal thug, I decided to post on gut reaction due to the inconsistency of what I saw.

              But you have a twitter account that would make the average person think you represent all reagan conservatives. Then you post a comment that a great majority of conservatives would interpret as opposition to their beliefs. What else are we suppose to conclude? and How could you not expect a repercussion like this?

              George Bush is a conservative, and he initiated TARP! I would agree that during his second term he was acting like a liberal, but just because someone goes off their beliefs for a short amount a time, doesn’t mean they are automatically not a conservative.

              Note: I was watching FNC while writing this comment, I did not see TRS’s responce.

              Ok so he ran for senate, and now his vote would have gone along with everyone elses, as TARP passed. What Mr Cain has spoken out about was the government picking the winners and losers in the deal. Now the downside of not passing TARP, we would not be in our current “depression” we would be in a total collapse. PS dont bring the normal Paulbot talking points to a Herman Cain video, and you shouldnt have any problems. We are just as classy as Mr Cain, we dont troll the other candidates sites spreading nonsense. Take a lesson please. Hermanator 2012

              Aww…man. You are sooo busted. You are not in reality a conservative, at all. We’ve already got you dubbed as the number #1 easiest person to fool with all of the liberally-biased reports that hit the internet. You’ve definitely got a problem with honesty, if you are one of the people spreading lies about Herman Cain.

              You can try to fool the people who do NOT know who he is, but you cannot fool the people who do. I’ve known who Herman Cain is for 8 years now; ever since he spoke at the Fair Tax conference our group held here in Pittsburgh back then — and do you have even the slightest knowledge about anything positive about him? Well, allow me to educate you. While most speakers would ask for payment, he refused; so we paid him the only way we knew how…by paying for his hotel room and meals. THAT is how humble of a man he is. I suppose YOU are probably THREATENED by that, and therefore, the only way you can lash out, is by trying to smear him. Well, the man is untouchable, when it comes to your kind.

              What’s more, is that 2 days before he announced he was running as a candidate for the POTUS, I walked up to stand in line at the booth where he was signing autographs…and he recognized me 8 years later; not to mention, behind a pair of sunglasses. Now, THAT’S the kind of president we need; one who will remember the people who voted for him, be humbled, have the humor and faith that God gave him…as well as the intelligence AND COMMON SENSE! He is our Ronald Reagan.

              And ahhh…if only the laws against slander and libel were enforced….

I think maybe you are right about that Reagan comparison. He lays it on the line like President Reagan did. I can even picture him saying, “Tear down that wall”, can’t you??

                  I met Cain at the Fla straw poll (I was there for another reason).
                  I took the opportunity to go and see him.
                  I challange any NAY SAYER to go and hear what he has to say.
                  I left 300% confident that this man can and will go all the way.
                  He is rising in the polls INSPITE of MSM and the establishment political talking heads.

              You should take it as a compliment. Ron is the only true conservative candidate to choose from. His record reveals a consistent fidelity to the U.S. Constitution and until after the NH. debates he was the only one addressing the major threat to American soveriegnty, the Federal Reserve system. You can trust him to take on the Fed and to do everything in his power to restore the American national government to its constitutional limits. Is there a doctor in the house ? You betcha !!

              • Debra Hartzog

                (Ron Paul) the only true conservative that 1. wants to legalize hard drugs such as heroin because it’s easier than fighting the drug war. 1. blames the US for 9-11 ( read his blog on his website.. quite interesting) 3. Believes that Iran has a “right” to have a nuclear bomb. Conservative, yes maybe, throwback, hippie freak ABSOLUTELY !!

          Why would TARP make you a conservative? Because it was instituted under Bush? What makes you think he’s a Conservative? He’s a progressive (lite) much like McCain, Romney and Perry…A Conservative abides by the Constitution…and if you think ANY government involvement in the private sector is a good thing, you have been drinking the koolaid. Why would anyone think the biggest bureaucratic mess in the world would do ANY good in a private company??? Beyond me!

        I am not a Ron Paul fan but I am not a Cain fan either. It concerns me greatly that Cain engaged in the Liberal Media’s false smear of Perry. Prior to that I was considering Cain along with Gingrich and Perry. After the false smear, I wrote Cain off my list. I will not vote for a candidate that violates President Reagan’s 11th Commandment by engaging in the Liberal Media’s false smear of another Republican.

        It is incumbent on all of us to scrutinize all of these candidates including Herman Cain. Otherwise the Liberal Media will lead us down the road to perdition as they did the last time. When the Liberal Media starts touting a Candidate like they have done with Cain it sets off my alarm bells.

        • http://www.facebook.com/palwalrus Paul Lawson

          That is pretty weak Leo, the question was presented in such a way that there was only one way to answer it, typical Liberal Media trick. Did you listen to the whole interview?

            Of course, I listened to the entire interview and since I started scrutinizing Cain, I have discovered many troublesome things about him: he said that he would pick Romney as his VP; he like Romney supported the Bank Bailout (TARP); he is a Former Fed Chairman and he wants to keep the Fed’s Banking Records secret; he like Romney draft dodged the Vietnam War; and he has said that States have the right to overrule our 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms.

            • http://www.facebook.com/jdcorley63 James Corley

              thats funny. I didn’t think that serving as an officer in the US Navy qualified one as a draft dodger. Working on ballistics for naval artillery is definitely serving ones country. I guess in your book the millions who served stateside and never saw combat in WW2 were draft dodgers too.

      Cain is a conservative and unlike Perry and Romney, he was a conservative when Bill Clinton was president. Cain challenged Clinton on health care when Clinton tried to pass HillaryCare.

      • Eh2Zed

        You forgot something. After he confronted Clinton, other CEO’s ran the numbers based on what Cain said on the TV townhall, and discovered he was EXACTLY right and Clinton was wrong. That was the turning point for Hillary care. After that moment, the money went to the anti hillarycare camp and the plan was rejected by the citizens in an overwhelmingly loud voice of dissent.

        Two thumbs up for Bolton. Bolton has the policy experience and he is articulate. (he has what Huntsman only wished he had…swipe!) He served in several positions during Reagan and G W Bush in the State Dept and Justice Dept. He is also friends with Clarence Thomas…There’s another big plus. Let’s hope that he might become a part of Cain’s administration where experience and rational brain power could be appreciated and profoundly applied.

    I’ve always loved Cain’s speaking. He’s very exciting. Wonderful speech here.

    The issue I have with him is that (as he said) he’s never held office. Some people see that as a plus, but I take issue with it. Just because he’s a wonderful speaker and has great ideas, what in his track record says he can get his policies enacted through Congress? He’s never worked there.

    I’m not a detractor, but I would be so much happier with him if this was settled.

    • http://twitter.com/boxerpaws1952 Boxers R Awesome

      my problem with Perry is that he’s made it where he is through political favors.a good example of that is his support of Al Gore. You grease enough palms you can get anywhere. Now that Perry has to stand on his own he doesn’t cut it.
      Romney has issues-the main one being he’s been on both sides. Like Perry-whatever it takes to get elected. Cain-on the other hand-will have the backing of the American ppl. He’s not beholden to anyone. Ronald Reagan knew that. Go to the American ppl. Perry/Romney if you like the status quo. You vote the same old-you get the same old. You can attack Cain and say he’s not up to the job but i think he’s a FAR better choice than the Romney-Perry deal.

      • Anonymous

        You know, if Cain had won that state Senate seat in Georgia, I’d be thrilled to death with him. As it is, I have some misgivings, but I like him a lot. Especially considering that I think Perry and Romney are punks. Especially Romney.

        It’s this: how can you get a job if you’ve never done something similar? Flip side: how can you possibly get this job when your past experience has made you too dirty to get this one? Rock and a hard place, I guess.

        BTW, just to clarify; not attacking. Thinking and doing my own soul-searching of what I think of him. I’ll attack Romney though if you want. ;-)

          Steprock, Here’s something to consider; while it’s nice to have experience, I think it’s more important to know what needs to be done and how you can accomplish it. Cain strikes me as the kind of man willing to bring in qualified people with actual experience to assist. He won’t choose pikers like Turbo Tax Timmy.

            Yeah, he’s got some clear advantages. I’m starting to take him more seriously now, which is why I’m questioning.

        • Anonymous

          I don’t understand why being a corporate CEO is not considered a (more than) adequate substitute for elected office. Corporate politics is just like elected politics, only with a bottom line (accountability). I don’t know why we venerate politicians just for being warm bodies in a chair.

          • Anonymous

            Thanks, all.

            The reason, as someone else pointed out on this site, is that a CEO has more direct power, like a dictator (even though they have a board).

            My only contention is that politics is its own animal. I don’t want this great guy to go in there full of awesome ideas and find himself trampled because he hasn’t been around that particular block.

            I’m torn on this issue. People say he can have aids and advisors and that experience in that arena is actually a negative. I kind of see the point, but I don’t buy it. I’d prefer someone who understands the game and has proven that they know how to win. A guy who says he’s going to turn the game up on its end may well be fooling himself.

            Washington is an ugly mess. Can Herman Cain navigate it successfully? So far, he’s the best candidate on the GOP ticket, but that pool’s getting pretty shallow these days.

            • Anonymous

              I get what you’re saying, but here’s my angle: A CEO may be a dictator, but you can’t dictate the bottom line. Dictatorial power means nothing if your job is to turn loss into profit and you can’t do it.

              And, yes, political institutions undoubtedly have entrenched interests that will balk at change, but so do markets and so do corporations. A CEO that goes in and starts busting heads is not going to get the cooperation he needs to do his job.

              Corporations are highly, highly political organizations. CEO’s are not dictators, they are executives–just like presidents. They are given a lot of authority, but results ultimately depend on factors like leadership, diplomacy, and problem-solving ability.

              Cain’s not going to be able to solve everything in DC overnight–no one could. But anyone who can deal with shareholders–who have as much or more “skin in the game” as career bureaucrats–is qualified IMHO.

              Not arguing, I respect your opinion. But that’s the kind of problem I want to have.

                Actually, that is the best thought out and direct answer to my question I’ve heard. I appreciate it.

                Generally, folks have been saying “No experience? That’s great!”

                Hearing how his experience as a CEO can translate to the White House is a very good take. Your response helps ease my lingering doubt.

                  As I stated last night, Cain has not been a robotic part in the RNC political machine and owes no “political favors” when choosing this powerhouse of a cabinet. It will all come down to who is best qualified for the position as well as who will serve the PEOPLE and the Constitution of the USA.

                  My bumper sticker would read: CAIN removes STAIN!

            Ain’t that the truth.

            Yeah, I just don’t want to see him get bamboozled or have to pull Obama’s “on the job training” crap. But Cain’s run a major company, worked for the Navy, run for office, and was in the Fed in Kansas, I believe it was.

            I thought the same thing about Palin: love him to death and his rhetoric and ideas, but where’s the proof he can succeed in this arena? I’m willing to vote for him, I just have some reservations still.

            [edit] Technically, it was the opposite with Palin. She had experience in government, but hadn’t run a company.

      I can understand your concern over someone who hasn’t held office, but he has been in multiple positions of leadership, even including the largest private group in the US, the National Restaurant Association, and has done quite well. Plus, he is willing to admit what he doesn’t know and “talk to the experts”. I don’t want someone who thinks they know everything, I want someone who knows that they don’t and are willing to surround themselves with the most successful people in the fields. With his integrity, I have no doubt in Cain’s ability to be our next president, and to do what this president campaigned on, to unite us once more.

        Have any of you considered that Cain could pick Newt as his VP choice. Top business man in the top spot, to fix the economy. The most gifted government and policy insider to help fix the problems of over government.

      Look at it this way, Cain was good enough to win his superiors over at Pilsbury to award him a certain position that allowed the company to make more money which means lerning more and making the company more efficient in operational terms. That didn’t mean firing the employees and stripping the company down to it’s essentials and selling it off like some other politician who’s father was famous for being governor of Michigan.

      Cain worked hard to get his advancements in business world and was rewarded for it. Motiviating others is part of the job of the CEO and he was great at it. This will transfer to his dealings with the Congress. Remember, the Congress is packed full of idiots that are isolated from the real world by their own choosing. Of course some of them are the exception to this rule.

      You can expect Cain to give real thought to problems, listen for the possible solutions from a cabinet of advisors and make the correct decision for the country totally opposite to the current usurper in the Whitehouse who as we all come to know, playing golf, vacationing and bad mouthing the country he’s supposedy leading is his preference.

      Most of the political pundits would prefer him to have that experience because it would give them something to dig up from his past like political favors to lobbyists or preferred groups and use it against him. They got zilch with this guy and their all belly aching about it. Many of those types bashed Reagan’s acting career to go after him claiming he wouldn’t know how to deal with the real world but they were totally wrong, were they not?

          Respectfully, I think you’re out of line here, cheezwhizz. I understand your sentiment, but there’s no reason to slam Boxers. It’s just semantics. I’m heartened to be reminded that there are many blacks who are proud of Herman Cain–and, of course, how could it be any other way?

          The Left has deeply poisoned our language, and we’re all struggling with it. What’s important is not the signifier, but the signified. We’re all friends here. The enemy is out there.

          To digress: Maybe I’m naive, but I truly believe that conservative, patriotic Americans are as colorblind a group as you will ever find, anywhere. I used to be a liberal, but their race obsession is just neurotic and creepy. Yet, as unified as we are, I think Cain could bring us even closer together.

          In the long run, there is only one identity that is worth throwing down for: “American.” If you’re a patriot, you can be green with three heads, and the first round of beers will be on me. If you’re a socialist and/or America-hater, you could be my identical twin, and I’d want nothing to do with you.

I’m sure he’s not perfect, because he’s human, but I really don’t want anyone else up there in that office at this point. He may not know how Washington works, but I think Washington doesn’t know how America works. He can learn laws and processes, but I hope he never picks up the Washington mentality.

    Herman Cain is the first real American Conservative candidate that our nation has seen since Ronald reagan spoke to us 2 decades ago. This man has a true understanding of our constitutional rights that have been dwindled away from us by the progressive liberal democrats since. His grasp of the economy will bring great things for america and our people. Herman Cain is real. Herman Cain understands.Herman Cain sees the true issues that can bring prosperity back to America. A Herman Cain in the whitehouse, our house, the house of the American people, will put a face on America that will bring back the well desrved respect this nation once held and deserves. I support Herman Cain. Herman cain will be the next president of the United States of America.

    Awesome speech! Cain has been giving speeches (sans teleprompter) like this at Tea Party and conservative events for the past year and every time he brings down the house, and wins the straw poll. The pundits and press have missed the story, and the Democrats and Republican establishment are getting worried. Keep a weather eye for storms brewing (Lawrence O’Donnell just fired the first pathetic shot), but Herman is up to the task. And it is up to us to see that he gets the fair shot he deserves.
    Oh and by the way, Cain’s “surprising” rise in the national polls, is no surprise to Tea Party activists, or to Pundit Pete. In fact, Pundit Pete, in a September 27 post, predicted a Cain victory and a few other things. Check it out, then bookmark it for an upcoming in-depth insider story about the Cain campaign strategy.

    Pundit Pete has a little fun with the news, but there a good dose of truth in every story – certainly more than your average news source. One clue to the next post. It will end with an admonition to Mr. Cain that he can’t be president, and after reading the story, you’ll know why.

    An embryo has no rights. Only human beings have rights. The living take precedence over the not-yet-living. An actual life should not be sacrificed for the sake of a potential life.

    Conservatives advocate individual rights for human beings, but as soon as a woman is pregnant, they suddenly advocate the violation of those rights.

    If an embryo has rights, then your tonsels, appendix and skin have rights too, since they are also clumps of cells. If Conservatives were consistent, then they would also say that tonsel removal is murder, that appendix removal is murder, and so on.

    Think, Conservatives. You are not advocating individual rights; you are advocating their violation.

      Human life begins at conception. Woman’s rights END where a child’s rights begin. A Child IS a human being. A child is just as dependent on the mother for survival outside the womb as it is inside the womb. Yes, Conservatives advocate individual rights for human beings, but as soon as the woman is pregnant, there are TWO individuals who have rights to be considered. Your strawman argument shows how YOU have not thought things through at all. God help you.

      • Anonymous

        “Human life” begins when those ‘cells’ have fully formed into a form that can exist outside of the womb. UNTIL that happens, it’s not a human being. A clump of cells is NOT human life. Human life is proper to ACTUAL human beings, and nothing else.

        Human life is being able to do everything that you, I and everyone else here can do. Does a clump of embryos have all five senses?? NO. So don’t call it a bloody human being when it is clearly NOT.

        Why do you Conservatives get so stupid when it comes to topics like abortion? You’re smart when it comes to economics and politics, but you become total bloody retards when it comes to so-called controversial issues like abortion. You talk about clumps of cells being the same thing as fully formed human beings. You talk about human beings having individual rights, and then proceed to DENY those rights to women, just because they have a clump of cells inside them.

          I’m glad you have defined when life starts. Just one problem with that. Your definition is different from how life itself defines when it starts. But keep searching there Kierkegaard… you’ll eventually get there. Until then, you may want to stay in the kiddie pool.

          Abortion, to you, means birth control. Why? Because you are the worst type of idiot that has ever been produced by this world. An educated one. When did you get more knowledge than God? When did you become supreme designer of this world?
          Do not dare call any of us “retards” when, by my standards you are less worthy to exist than thousands of embryos that have the potential to perform millions of good works. You pass judgement without thinking. You condemn without understanding. You do not hold anyone accountable for their own actions, but defame those who raise the question.
          If this country does not return to solid Christian values and a reliance on God, the Creator, then it does not matter if Obama, or Biden, or even you, Kordane, become President. The chances of the United States continuing as a nation without repentance, are slim at best.

            Conservatives DO get retarded when it comes to such issues, because you’re all for individual rights, UNTIL a woman has a clump of cells growing inside her. You all become bloody altruists, clamouring for the sacrifice of the women for the sake of a clump of cells. You don’t care about her life, you don’t give a crap about her interests, you don’t care about her being able to pursue her happiness; you want to MEDDLE and CONTROL her life and her body, no differently than the bloody statists whom think that they know how to run your own life better than you do. You are no different from the statist, when it comes to issues like abortion. You want to control people. You want to run their lives for them. Damn you for it.

            A woman’s body belongs to her, and until that embryo becomes a body that is capable of existing independent of the woman’s body, then it is a part of the woman’s body no different from any other organ, and she can choose to remove it if she so wishes, just as she can choose to remove her tonsils or appendix. Her body belongs to her, NOT to you and your fellow meddling and controlling Conservatives.

              Yup… keep munchin’ on that “women’s right to their bodies” nonsense which, by the way, was thought up by Bernard Nathanson… America’s preeminent abortion doctor who founded the movement to repeal the abortion laws. He admitted that women’s rights was a bogus but useful agenda notion to be used as a political argument to advance the abortion machine. He then reversed his position and became fiercely pro-life. Look him up.

              So keep splashing around in that kiddie pool of weak and debile justifications for the indefensible. The only way you can keep arguing such falsities is if you think you can succeed in calling it a “lump of cells”… an appendix… tonsils… a cancerous growth… whatever fantasy comes to mind.

              The you parade around in false sanctimony by pretending to take up the cause of women’s rights. It’s the same predictable uninnovative and intellectually empty pseudo ideas.

              On all counts science has proven you wrong… that’s why you fall back on vacuous and empty false justifications. If you were to put two honest minutes into acknowledging the scientific truths, you may be persuaded. But then again… the argument is NEVER about science… that’s why pro-abortion people never argue science… they argue left-wing emotion. Always!

              Oh and P.S. It’s the pro-life people who do care about women. Unsurprisingly you got that backwards as well. The pro-abortion advocates only pretend to care about the women… because it advances their narrative.

              Maybe if she learned how to close her legs better, she wouldn’t have that “clump of cells” in there that might ruin her life. The use of abortion is predominantley as birth control. Not for any other reason. So either learn how to use a rubber, the pill, or even foam and the sponge, or learn how to close your legs.
              “A woman’s body belongs to her, and until that embryo becomes a body that is capable of existing independent of the woman’s body, then it is a part of the woman’s body no different from any other organ, and she can choose to remove it if she so wishes, just as she can choose to remove her tonsils or appendix.”
              If that is the case, then how do you explain late term abortions that kill a viable baby. Considering a baby can live outside the womb after 6 months in the womb, then why are babies aborted at 8 months, then killed or ignored till they die.

              I read every post you made in this thread. I am a fairly intelligent person and there is just one thing that I do not understand from you. Why are you so incredibly adamant about not giving rights to a fetus? What could it possibly hurt to extend the basic right to (in your words, not mine) become a life?

              Based on what you are laying on the table, you are very close to this situation and that is really too bad. It would be great if every child were born to two loving and devoted parents who were rich beyond necessity and who had a life plan to raise a child. The sad truth is that this does not happen every time and when it does, there are moral boundaries that are tested. I hope, for your sake, that you can open your heart a little and see what we are advocating. Me, NCHokie2, and others are not using pure intellect, we are using a moral and emotional line as well.

              While cases of rape and incest test me from time to time, I ask you these questions: In cases where the woman is using abortion as a form of birth control, should she not be held responsible for her actions? Is there any, ANY case where you can see that abortion is wrong? If not, where does that leave the father of the child (clump of cells, your words)? Does he not have a right to protect his seed?

      That was just stupid. A human embryo is a human life and it is alive. Educate yourself on things like when brain activity starts, when a heartbeat starts, when that life will react to outside stimuli. Don’t worry I won’t hold your ignorance and lack of compassion against you.

      I’m sure you are a staunch supporter of the death penalty then, just for consistencies sake ;-)

        An embryo is NOT a human being. They’re two entirely different things.

        Now yes, “one day in the future” it may develop into a human being – But right that moment, as a clump of cells, it is most certainly NOT a human being.

        A human being is not a clump of cells. A human being has DEFINITE qualities, totally unlike that of a clump of cells.

        And don’t give me that crap about compassion. You Conservatives deny compassion to the WOMAN (note: An actual, living, fully independent HUMAN BEING), because you sacrifice her, right up there on your Conservative altar, for the sake of a clump of cells. You are the evil ones. You really are.

          evil?? because we would prefer to have the mother bring the child into this world wether she raises it or gives it up for adoption rather than end it’s life before it even has a chance?? Thats evil??

            YOU want her to bring a child into the world. There is no consideration for HER, interests at all, even though she is an “actual” human being; it’s all for the interests of a “potential” being. It’s no different from bureaucrats and politicians who think they know better than individuals in the market, meddling and forcing is all they know.

            Yes, it’s evil, because you deny the women her individual rights, just like politicians and bureaucrats do.

                By banning a woman from getting an abortion (before the objectively determined point at which an embryo is capable of existing outside of the human body), you are effectively saying that the woman does not own her own body; that she does not own her own life. Hence, you are denying her “right to life”; the right which is the source of all rights.

                  She is not being killed, so therefore her “right to life” is not being considered here.

                  The “right to life” does not simply mean the “right not to be killed”. If that is what you believe, then you have a complete lack of understanding of what this fundamental right actually means.

                  Human “life” is much more broad than “not being dead” – It’s the ENTIRE sphere of a human being’s life; it’s everything we do, as human beings; eating, sleeping, sports, business, thinking, etc etc etc.

                  The “right to life” is the source of all rights. As a Conservative, you should dedicate your time to understanding this and accepting it.

                  As for the drugs thing, the government has no right to ban drugs, since if “you own your own body” then you can harm it or destroy it, just as you can do so with any other property you own.

                  Those who advocate banning drugs do not believe that “you own your own life”; they believe that the state/society owns it.

                  So I have a right to have a job, the right to sports (whatever that means), the right to drive since thats part of life. The right to life is the right to not have your life put into jeopardy meaning death not all things that you happen to enjoy in life. That comes into liberty.

                  The right to Liberty is the source of all rights. There are many “priveledges” that people consider rights.

                  Again, you show your lack of understanding of what individual rights are.

                  Individual rights are to “freedom of action” – NOT to goods/services.

                  No, the right to liberty is the freedom from coersion or compulsion by the government. That is all. It comes FROM the “right to life”, not the other way around. The “right to life” is the broadest of ALL rights, since it encapsulates the entirety of “human life”.

                  You don’t know all this, and yet you call yourself a Conservative? What is this world coming to!

                  So then why even need to say the right to liberty? Why not just stop at life since that is all encompassing in your view?

                  You were the one that clumped business and sports into the right to life not me.

                  Liberty does stem from the right to life because without life you have nothing. However who decides what is included in the “right to life”? You? The gov’t? The individual? The things I consider my right because of my “right to life” may not include or exclude everything you consider your right because of your “right to life”.

                  Say what you will but you’re not going to convince me that someone should be allowed to terminate a life because they screwed up and got pregnant when it’s not “a good time” for them. There are plenty of children that have grown out of poverty to become great people so being poor is no reason that someone cannot have a child. It may not be preferred but they can raise children to become successful individuals as well.

                  For the states issues it should be left up to the people to decide. If they vote it in then the state can allow or ban as the people see fit.

                  Let us define our terms, because when you say “They shouldn’t be allowed to terminate a life”, you are actually saying “They shouldn’t be allowed to terminate a cellular life”. You are NOT saying “They shouldn’t be allowed to terminate a human life”, since “human life” is completely different from that of “cellular life”. I shouldn’t need to give the differences between a human and a clump of cells.

                  As for you saying that a majority is all that’s necessary to ban abortion, I say that what you are advocating is the violation of individual rights by the tyranny of the majority. That is un-American. America is not a democracy – It is a constitutional republic, and that means that individual rights trump ANY majority.

                  According to you, all you need is a simple majority, and that means you can turn a state into a communist dictatorship. You have NO understanding of individual rights and what they imply.

                  Wrong, I believe that life beings at conception so abortion would be trampling the rights of that unborn human life. Just because the “cells” don’t look like a human at the time doesn’t mean they are not human.

                  I am well aware that we live in a constitutional republic and not a democracy. So the people then should have not be able to vote on any issues that come up in the state legislature correct?

                  I do understand individual rights, just because I believe that life begins at a different time then you and that the “right to life” is not all encompassing of everything that one may do during life doesn’t mean I don’t understand individual rights.

      How come the rapist can’t get the death penalty but the child can for no fault of its own?

      Its called personal responsibility. Its no surprise as to how pregnancy occurs. Use a condom or birth control or something. Because you are irresponsible enough to not take precautions to not get pregnant while engaging in the very practice that causes pregnancy doesn’t give one the excuse to end the life that they have created and now no longer want. And what is wrong with abortion?? There are tons of families that are unable to get pregnant that would love to adopt a child.

      • Anonymous

        Even if a woman got pregnant irresponsibly, it doesn’t automatically mean that she should have a child. It may be in her self interest to NOT have that child, as if often the case – But you don’t give a crap about her self interest and the pursuit of her happiness – You only care about the interests of that ‘potential’ being. You are sacrificing an actual human being for the sake of a potential human being. I cannot abide by that.

          again, what is the problem with adoption if you can’t afford to have a child or raise it in a setting that one would prefer for that child. There are hundreds of quality families that would love to adopt. So the woman now just doesn’t want to be inconviencied by her pregnancy that occured due to her irresponsibility is what you are saying now.

          • Anonymous

            If we lived in your world where abortion was banned, then there would be far more supply for unwanted children than there would be for adoptee parents. “Hundreds” of quality families would not be sufficient demand to meet the supply. So you know what would happen? – Those children would have to go to low quality families, if any at all – and I don’t need to elaborate on that.

              You assume that in a nation that has banned abortion women will continue to act irresponsibly and not have a second thought about “Wait if I get pregnant I can’t get an abortion so maybe I should take some precautions”. You make the same assumptions of the politicians that you don’t like.

              The main point that we are not going to get past is that you don’t believe that a child is a child until it is in this world. Without that belief you can do whatever you want, morals aside, as it is “just a clump of cells”. Of course we as people are just clumps of cells too. When does life begin then I ask? Do you believe in partial-birth abortion? When should abortion not be allowed?

              • Anonymous

                Conservatives believe that “life begins at conception”, which I argue is an absurd argument given that it is en par with the “life” of a tonsil or appendix, in terms of development. It isn’t the same kind of life as an actual human being has life. The embryo is the same as a tonsil or appendix, because it cannot exist outside the woman’s body, whereas at the later stages of pregnancy it is very possible for it to exist outside the woman’s body. This is when I would argue that “life” begins.

                An objective point in development time needs to be decided upon, absent of ANY distortion on religious grounds. Conservatives reject this notion; they want to decide things on religious grounds, which means absent of objectivity and absent of reason. I cannot abide by a stance that rejects objectivity and reason in an issue which sorely needs them.

                  So again when does life begin?

                  Since you are not a Christian and obviously no other religion because you believe they are “absent of objectivity and reason” there is no way that we will convince the other that we are right.

                  I do however hope that this isn’t a sticking point for you in voting for Cain as I don’t think he will attempt to overturn Roe v Wade on his first day in office and has many other positives about him. If it is then again, you might as well vote for Obama as there isn’t another person running who believes in abortion.

                  I don’t agree with abortion however I do believe that it should be a state issue and the federal government should stay out of it. There is nowhere in the Constitution that abortion falls into.

                  States’ rights do not grant states the privilege of abrogating the citizens’ individual rights.

                  Individual rights are the individual’s protection against the states and the federal government, and states’ rights are the states’ protection against the federal government.

                  Really, this all comes down to “when” we go from being a clump of cells to being a human life.

                  I argue that it is blatantly absurd to make the argument that some Conservatives have made here, that a clump of cells is exactly the same thing as a fully formed human being. I’ve had to point out why they’re not the same thing, because apparently those Conservatives lost the ability to discern between the two.

                  I argue that a clump of cells becomes a human being when it reaches the stage that it can exist independent of the woman, outside of her body. I’m no expert in biology, but I know that this can be objectively determined. Until this point, the clump of cells is PART of the woman’s body, and she should therefore have the power to do with her body as she pleases. Either you consistently believe that “we own our own bodies”, or you jump in line with the statists.

                  Again, we aren’t going to agree.

                  I don’t think the federal gov’t telling states that they MUST allow abortion is right either.

                  This is an area we don’t agree on. I do believe that people own their own bodies but once you bring another life into the matter then you are not free to end that life as you see fit, wether it’s dependant on you or not.

                  It does come down to when we believe life begins. I believe it begins at conception you don’t. You are not going to convince me otherwise and I’m’ not going to convince you either. There is not scientific data that says it has not begun at conception because cells are living things.

                  Again, if this is your sticking point with candidates then vote for Obama because he is the one you want in office.

                  The federal government shouldn’t have to tell the states to “allow” abortion, because the states shouldn’t have any power to ban abortion in the first place, since states’ rights do not abrogate individual rights.

                  Yes, cells are living things, but they are not human beings. A human being is a human being. A cell is a cell. You can’t logically call a cell, or even a clump of cells, a human being, because they’re two entirely different things, with totally different “qualities”.

                  again, those cells are in a constant state of change and developing into a human being as you know it. It has to start somewhere.

                  So states don’t have the right to ban drugs because it’s my body and thats infringing on my rights correct?

                  Yes, an embryo is “developing into” a human being, but it isn’t an actual human being until a certain point has been reached. I’ve argued that this certain point is when the embryo can survive outside of the human body. That is a point that can not only be objectively determined, but it’s also a point which ‘makes sense’, given that being able to survive outside of a human body is pretty damn fundamental to being a human being!

                  And no, states don’t have a right to ban drugs. Government, whether it’s federal or state, only has a role in protecting the individual rights, ie. retaliating against whomever attempts to violate those rights.

                  States’ rights has become such a corrupted concept that people now believe that states have an unlimited, arbitrary power over individuals.

                  Agree on the states rights, however I do believe that the people should be allowed to vote on the issues for their states. Thats why there are dry counties in states. If thats what those people want then so be it as long as it’s not infringing on another’s rights. But I believe that life begins at conception so an abortion would be infringing on that life inside the mother.

                  Again, you have your view I have mine. Just because humans don’t look the same the entire life doesn’t mean it’s not human. We disagee on this issue.

                  On the Obama issue I’m just merely stating that if your sticking point with conservative candidates is their views on being anti-abortion then I challenge you to find one that supports abortion. I don’t know of one and can only think of Obama being the pick for that side if that is preventing you from supporting any other candidate.

              You also assume that there would be an influx of unwanted babies and not enough families to provide for them. Where is data on that? I’m sure there would be a large number who were happy that they had the child and would raise it to the best of their ability once the baby was born.

              In the end if that is the only reason you aren’t supporting Herman Cain then go and vote for Obama because thats the only person running in the next election that is going to support abortion.

              • Anonymous

                There would be an influx of unwanted babies, because you’re depriving millions of women from having the option of abortion. There is no conclusive evidence to show that there is an equal number of willing and able people who would adopt those children.

                So many abortions occur each year that I really don’t believe that the demand for adoptions can meet the potential supply of unwanted babies, in the kind of world that Conservatives want. You’d end up with many unwanted babies simply being left on doorsteps, put into orphanages, or worse.

                There would not be the utopian world where every unwanted baby has adoptee parents.

                I actually support Herman Cain and want him to be president, despite not supporting him on this one issue.

          You talk about individual rights so much but don’t want any individual responsibility. Part of liberty is being responsible for your actions and if that is getting pregnant when you shouldn’t have or couldn’t have afforded it then that is something you will have to deal with, as a responsible human being. Condoms don’t cost that much there is birth control, or wait to have sex.

          And what rights of hers are being sacrificed by not allowing the woman to get an abortion??

          • Anonymous

            They can be “responsible” by getting an abortion, rather than bringing a child into poverty. I think it is completely irresponsible to have a child when you are not in reasonable financial circumstances.

            So really, individual responsibility isn’t the issue here.

            There are instances when “birth control” doesn’t actually work, and women get pregnant regardless. Even condoms have ~1% chance of failure.

            By banning abortion you prevent that women from doing what may be in her self-interest and from pursuing her happiness. You also violate the principle that “one owns one’s own body”. Therefore, you are violating her individual rights.

            See, what annoys me most is how Conservatives aren’t consistent advocates for individual rights; they’re hypocrites – They’re against the government telling them how to live their lives when it comes to stuff like what food to eat, what lightbulb to use, what toilet seat to have, and so on – but because of your totally unsubstantiated, totally theoretical religious beliefs, you declare: “government should tell people how to live their lives… government should violate people’s individual rights… by banning women from getting an abortion”.

            • Anonymous

              First I never said “government should tell people how to live their lives…government should violate people’s individual rights…by banning women from getting an abortion”. So don’t put words in my mouth.

              Second I don’t believe ending a life because you don’t want to be inconvenienced by a pregnancy and put a child up for adoption or because you are irresponsible enough to not use birth control or heaven forbid WAIT TO HAVE SEX until one is at least in a place where having a child wouldn’t “ruin their everyday lives”. Saying that birth control and condoms fail a fraction of the time is not a valid argument. People should still take precautions, I know there is a chance they won’t’ work but it is very small. I suppose you shouldn’t use a seatbelt either because in a small fraction of car accidents people die because of the seatbelt.

              You believe that life begins at some point later, whenever that is I believe it begins at conception. I do not believe that ending that life is a “responsible” thing to do. Taking precautions to not get pregnant while engaging in sex is a responsible thing to do.

              Either way we don’t and will not agree. So if this is the deciding factor in your vote go vote for Obama because thats who you want in the white house.

                Being pro-abortion is one of the few things that liberals got right. The problem is that 99% of the other stuff they advocate is wrong. Conservatives got abortion and a few other things wrong, but 99% of the other stuff they advocate is right.

                For you to claim that “life beings at conception”, even though said “life” is merely a clump of cells, is equivalent with saying that tonsils are “life” or that an appendix is “life”.

                “Human life” doesn’t just mean “sharing a genetic code” – It’s much more broad than that, because otherwise a tonsil/appendix is “human life” too, because they also shares a genetic code with human beings, so is a tonsil a human being too? No, clearly not.

                You really have to be objective about this and determine when a clump of cells stops being a clump of cells, and starts being a “human being”. I have argued here that it is only a human being when it can exist outside of the human body. That “clump of cells” which you call a human being, would die within seconds if it was outside of a woman’s body – So therefore you cannot call it a human being. The most you can call it is a “potential” human being, as opposed to an “actual” human being. The question then becomes: Do “potential” human beings have individual rights too, or do they solely come from being an “actual” human being.

                Individual rights come from our nature as a rational human being (unlike that of irrational animals). A clump of cells is neither a human being, nor rational. I have pointed out why this is the case, and if you are rational about it then you would agree that “a clump of cells is not a human being; a human being is a human being; a clump of cells is a clump of cells”. End of.

                  That clump of cells is constantly in a state of development to become a baby. There is no pause in it. Its how humans are born. So in its development you consider it not a human because it doesn’t “look like” or “act like” a human. A tonsil will never become a human, appendix will never become a human. So because life in its early stages doesn’t fit your pre-concieved notion of what a human is then it is not a human?? Your argument is weak. You cannot prove that life does not begin at conception. Again the cells are in a constant state of change and working their way to eventually become what you call human. Just because those cells don’t resemble at a certain point and time what you call human doesn’t mean they aren’t alive.

                  Once again, we disagree. You are not going to convince me otherwise. We are allowed to have our differences in opinion and beliefs…part of what makes this country great. If this is your sticking point with a candidate then vote for Obama, he’s your man.

                  – Cells may be alive, just as tonsils are alive when they’re apart of a body, but they are certainly not “human life”, since “human life” is much more broad than the “life” of a cell.

                  Quote: “cells are in a constant state of change and working their way to eventually become what you call human”

                  – So you admit that a clump of cells is not the same thing as a human being.

                  Also, cut the crap about voting for Obama. I disagree with 99% of what Liberals advocate, but only disagree with 1% of what Conservatives advocate. I’m not about to go vote for a Liberal over a mere 1%!

          You don’t get it. They ARE an actual person and you ARE killing them. It’s no secret that throughout history that in order to get the population comfortable with mass murder you must first dehumanize the victim. That is precisely what the abortion rights activists have set out to do.

          We are immune to your dehumanizing propaganda.

        No she isn’t actually. She’s pro-abortion. It’s just that she was in a good financial and marital situation to have me at the time, and was rational enough to wait for the right circumstances to bring a child into the world, rather than bring me up into poverty.

      an embryo has rights because it is a baby. your cells in the tonsils, appendix, skin or elsewhere will never become a baby.the embryo is the tiniest baby there is but it is still baby.

      • Anonymous

        A baby is not a “potential” human being, it is an “actual” human being. The clump of cells you call a baby, is a potential human being, but is not an actual human being.

        Individual rights are to actual human beings ONLY. They do not extend to ‘potential’ human beings, given the fundamental nature of individual rights which come from our nature as a rational human being, which is therefore TOTALLY different from the nature of a clump of cells which is a) not rational and b) not a human being.

          And who assigned the word “potential” to the human-being-ness of the embryo? The assignation was based on political considerations, not scientific ones.

          • Anonymous

            “Potential” indicates that it may or may not be; its status is indeterminate. Indeed, even without abortion, there is still the chance of miscarriage. You cannot say that it is an “actual” life until it has reached the stage at which it can exist outside the body. A “life” is only ever one, when it can be lived outside the body.

          our rights come from our nature as “rational” human beings and not our Creator??? rational is a relative term.

          • Anonymous

            Our rationality, ie. the ability to use “reason” – Is what separates us from other animals; it means that we have a nature unlike that of animals, and should therefore consider ourselves differently not only in relation to animals, but also in relation to eachother. Individual rights are the freedoms of action that are “right” to us, when amongst other human beings. If we did not have reason, then individual rights would be impossible, because reason is a prerequisite.

        An embryo cannot exist outside the body; it can exist within a body.

            Yes, that woman “allowed” me to become a fully formed human being, because it was her CHOICE. The system you Conservatives talk of is one in which freedom of choice is removed, and the government comes in to FORCE people to have a child whether they want one or not. You don’t realise the harm, both financially and mentally that having a child that a woman does not want, can do to that woman. I may have been born, but I would have had a pretty terrible life if my mother was in poverty and wasn’t mentally prepared to have me.

            Embryos may be “life”, but they’re life just like a tonsil or an appendix, and the absurdity lies in the claim that they are “human life” despite human life being much more broad that the “life” of what is actually just “cellular life”. That’s right, embryos are “cellular life”, they are most definitely not “human life”, at least not yet anyway, and it’s up to the mother whether they get that chance – Not you. Stop thinking you can rule people’s lives and tell them what to do. On matters of abortion, Conservatives are the Liberals, and Liberals are the Conservatives. One is in favour of control, and the other in favour of freedom.

      But your tonsils, appendix and skin can NEVER become a person with a conscience and a soul. Tonsils etc, were not created by God, the person was. Embryos represent a NEW life.

      • Anonymous

        In the context of an embryo being “a clump of cells”, the tonsils, appendix, and so on, are also just “a clump of cells”. So therefore, to have the tonsils and appendix removed, would be to murder them, according to the Conservative line of thinking. It’s irrelevant whether they cannot become a person with a conscience; the fact is that those tonsils and appendix were “alive”, until they were “murdered” by whomever removed them. It’s absurd, I know, but that’s where your Conservative logic takes this, if it is consistently applied.

    Herman will prevail despite the Republican establishment and despite the liberal mainstream media.

    I just noticed that the Lawrence O’Donnell interview post on RS has 480 comments. Once people get to know Herman Cain, they are passionate about him and people are finally starting to learn about him – despite the establishment and the MSM.

    I’m surprised that Mr. O’Donnell didn’t confront Mr. Cain about the fact that he became the CEO of a pizza company and not a fried chicken company. That would have been consistent with the left’s thinking towards blacks. Brainwashing, if you will.

        Cain has not really been vetted yet. There is one story going around about how a reporter saw Cain drinking white wine with breakfast. That’s it so far. It will get much uglier than that.

        Cain did not do very well in that O’Donnell interview. Don’t let the false outrage by the liberal side fool you. O’Donnell succeeded in making Cain look like a poseur. Cain handled himself well considering, but the narrative is now set. Herman Cain is a draft dodging coward who sat out the civil rights movement. O’Donnell got him good because he knew he put Cain in a no win situation. If Cain had gotten angry and indignant, he’s a hot headed extremist with a short fuse. By staying calm he’s a tool of the Right who can’t abide a strong black man.

        They will try to destroy him.

        Cain’s biggest policy weakness is his 999 plan. It’s obviously bogus and once he starts having to answer for it he’s going to be in trouble. The narrative is now set so he won’t get much mileage out of it anymore.

        • Josh

          Cain’s greatest strength is his 9 9 9 plan. If he can get it passed, it will revolutionize the business world. It will make things affordable and revitalize the economy. The only thing that I am concerned about is the ones who are too scared of change to make anything happen. As a country, we need to decide if we have lost the ability to innovate, or if we can evolve into a new economy.

    “Dogma voters” is the more fitting label. “Values voters” is a label invented by people who like to think of themselves as championing good human values. What many of them are pushing actually is dogma. “Values” are “the principles that help you to decide what is right and wrong, and how to act in various situations.” Cambridge Dictionary of American English. “Dogma” is “a fixed, esp. religious, belief or set of beliefs that people are expected to accept without any doubts.” Id. The two, we can only hope, overlap to some extent, but they are hardly the same. Some of what religious fundamentalists hold up as values others find plainly wrongheaded and even immoral. Labels count. Those pushing the “values voters” label hope it will help them pass off their dogma as values. If they want to push their dogma, that’s their right. But “dogma voters” they are, and that’s what I’ll call them.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Deb-Carole/1415135633 Deb Carole

      It is the dogma voters who will die to protect your unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. As the founding fathers wrote, “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” and the dogma voters honor that same pledge. You should be thanking God for those who keep watch over your liberties.

      • dougindeap

        I appreciate that dogma voters include among their ranks patriots who will defend the rights of those who disagree with them. Did you mean to imply, without actually saying, that others who don’t share their dogma will do any less in this regard? If so, I’ll be the first to say you’re wrong–very much so.

      Liberal tactic: Name calling.
      Do you not see yourself in the mirror? Dogma is just another word for what one holds to be foundational truth. Everyone has dogma.

      So what are your dogmas? I would bet they would sound a lot like this: “From each, according to his ability, and to each according to his need.” If you agree with that, then you have the same dogma as Karl Marx.

    The hard thing about the abortion debate is it always seems to be one extreme or the other. Either you allow all abortions or deny all abortions. But the thing about life is .. well … it isn’t so cut and dry.

    Should doctors perform abortions for birth control purposes?? Absolutely not!

    But what if the woman was raped? Why should she be ‘made’ to go through with this pregnancy? Why should she be reminded for nine months about the horror she had to go through? Why should we the public decide for HER what she can endure or not?

    This is why it is such a passionate issue.

    • Anonymous

      Trish,

      Or looked another way, on your rape example, why should an innocent baby be killed for the crime of another? It is so encouraging to me to hear from people who were the result of any unplanned pregnancy. They are sure thankful that their mom was pro-life, and didn’t abort them!

    This is a start but listen two messages Herbert Cain speaks to the need of the people how much its going to cost to do two things pay your bills to the goverment
    and provide your self a retirement , and take care of your family , my uncle during
    the depression, built out houses in Seattle Washington one wholer ,and two wholer
    sold then on the street corner . Jobs you make a job, create something one at a time , if you wait for some one to feed you like a baby needing to be nurse with a bottle , and you are old enough to create lazy attitudes of why work, then go to
    college and learn liberal doctrines so you can set back and write books about
    subjects you have never work at in business but in experimentalism putting a theory
    to work in small scale, but it fails in actual every days work, This is the white house of today, all theory but no solutions that work , common sense is the man we want
    Herbert Cain or Newt both have solutions and are providing solutions the other are trying to catch up , I AN saying Watch AN listen,,,,,

He believes in the American dream yet he sees nothing wrong with his 999 plan putting the poor deeper into the poor house. And he still doesn’t understand how the banking system and Wall Street created the economic collapse with their crooked practices. If they didn’t, why did they need TARP and WHY DID HE SUPPORT IT? And what’s wrong with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Why do they need fixing if the banking industry doesn’t have a problem? I quit watching when he claimed he would follow Reagan’s foreign policy. He has no foreign policy. Cain doesn’t have a clue and he just so full of it. And yes, I am a Paul supporter..and proud of it.

Perry enter the race as another valuable point of view – but of all the candidates thus far I trust and I can actually watch without cringing, its Mr. Cain. To this day I cannot bear to look at former Pres. Clinton or Barak Obama. I think they’re liars and I don’t trust them. What did it for me with Bill Clinton was his fake tears he made certain the press saw and reported. My Mom called him a despicable man. That was strong language for her… I have no further comments on Pres. Obama. I am sadly not enthusiastic with Mr. Romney – he makes me very ucomfoprtable since I do not really trust anything he says.

    The first time i heard Herman Cain speak, I was put off by his seeming ignorance of the Constitution. On a few occasions since, he’s made statements that indicated the same lack of knowledge re: our founding documents. BUT – in this speech, and in several others before it, he has shown improvement in this critical area, and now in this one he has begun to parse individual words in the DoI. FINALLY, a nat’l figure takes the time to [1] understand these documents, and [2] pass that understanding on to an audience.

    Well done, Mr. Cain; you have shown a willingness to identify and correct issues on a proactive basis.

    Since SP has taken herself out of the running, I am now solidly behind the Hermanator. Perry & Romney might as well skip off into the sunset together.

    I would like everyone to think about one thing. Think about your grandma on social security that with the 999 plan Cain propses, would cost them an extra 9% tax on milk, bread, medicine, meat, gas that they buy. So we want our lowest class of people paying that 9 percent tax when they cant already deciede if they can pay the heating bill or pick their perscriptions???? Ask your self that because ALL of us knows someone in that position!! Mr. Cain with all due respect these numbers are wronf and will not help anyone but the corporations that will only pay 9 % tax instead of the 30 % or so that is there now. I think you will be making a need for more entitlement programs. Now if that is what you are trying to do, your going in the righ direction!
