Cain wins Republican straw poll in Florida

Original post made by Perspective, Meadow Park, on Sep 25, 2011

I don't give much credence to straw polls, but I was happy to see that for once my man "won" a straw poll. My woman, Bachmann, has also "won" one. None of the other men appeal to me as candidates. Too mooshy.

You can be a "LOVE-able" nice guy and still not make a good President. Cain suffers in multiples what Obama suffers from now ... political inexperience. Just like Ron Paul sounds like a kindly old doctor, or Michelle Bachman sounds like a commonsense housewife ... these are marketing images. None of these people are really dealing with facts and ideas, and if they did they would probably leave the American people behind in a confused daze.

We have evolved into a nation of a small elite minority with all the money and power who know what is going on and control everything, and that control just gets bigger and more powerful as time goes by as our schools and public institutions shrink and become less effective. There is NO evidence that channels are being put in place to invest or even service the vast number of American people who through no fault of their own are now stuck in a kind of limbo of disenfranchisement. And the young people are being marketed par-excellance to accept a world that they only catch up to the reality when they are about ready to retire.

The obvious common sense conclusion would be that whatever the doctored marketing info says we have been and are moving in the wrong direction (ie. Republican) for the benefit of a small entitlement-driven minority and the trends are kicking in and all on high-speed now. Maybe we ought to take our collective foot off the accelerator and actually look out the windshield at what we are facing and how out of control we might be before we crash the future into something we cannot fix.

The Cain Train!

His 9-9-9 is marvelous!

Reduce the tax rate on billionaires to 9%

Reduce the tax rate on Exxon and GE to 9% (so we owe them more taxpayer dollars when they take their credits!)

Raise federal sales taxes to 9%, plus CA sales tax!

Maybe I'm looking at it upside down, it's really a 666 plan on America.

The Cain Train!
