4 comments on “GOP Nomination

  1. Well i dont trust Cain as far as I can throw him as he was a chair for the federal reserve for a while, Romney tries to convey a conservative attitude however he often is more liberal than he lets on, I have supported Ron Paul since the last election because he never changes his tune and everything he says makes good common sense from a constitutional perspective

    May Liberty Prevail

  2. I’ve been thinking recently: in 2000, the American people were dissatisfied with Clinton, and so we brought in Bush. Then in 2008, the American people were dissatisfied with Bush, so we brought in Obama. Now we’re dissatisfied with Obama, but in my opinion, if we as a people think that simply switching parties is going to solve our problems, we’re just running in circles in a presidential revolving door. The source of our problems isn’t, as the liberals would have us believe, that we keep electing Republicans. Nor is our problem that we keep electing Democrats. The problem is that we keep electing politicians.

    Cain looks like someone to watch–I’m gonna have to do some more research on this guy. Flippant as it sounds, I think this country could benefit from the experience and intelligence of a man with a background in pizza.

  3. To be flippant: I’ll vote for whomever wins the Rupublican nomination.

    To be informed:
    Even though he’s a former politico, former MN Gov. Tim Pawlenty has appeared to be very open about his positions and what he would run on (as far as a platform is concerned, I’ve seen nothing concrete yet, it’s still very early), should he win the nomination. He (Pawlenty) reminds me of vanilla ice cream, in that he’s plain spoken with not a lot of flair. It’s not sexy, but he makes his points, and the average person who thinks can understand him (agree/disgree).

    As to Herman Cain:
    (@Jackson-Sketch Comedy), I do not think your reasoning is flippant in any way, because you make a correct point. And that point is this: that the intelligence and experience of a man with a background in pizza (and business), is just what this country needs. Herman Cain understands what it takes to create jobs, to create opportunity, to build a business, and to shutter that business if it doesn’t perform as required (which bears not so much on *who* does the work, but on *how* that work is carried out). So he doesn’t have a complete understanding of “Foreign Affairs”, but he admits to it, and learns about it to become better informed. To say “I don’t know anything about that, but I’m going to find out” is not a sign of lacking in knowledge, but rather a sign that says “I don’t pretend to know everything, and when I’m wrong, I’ll admit it, and learn what I need to.”

    To be Forward, IMO:
    Too many times, has this country had politicians say one thing and turn and commit to the opposite. If the country is capable of electing a politician to the highest office, who doesn’t understand that the country needs an improved economy, lower tax rates, and reduced business regulations, in order to foster creativity and jobs; then it is certainly possible to elect a businessman, having never before held public office, who bears the understanding of exactly how to make a business (or in this case, a country) successful. To bring this business (The United States of America) back to success, and allow its employees (the people) to return to work, the job creation must be fostered by the correct workplace opportunities (ie. reducing taxes, competition over state lines, deregulation, etc.)
