Raising Cain

There’s still a few candidates that we haven’t talked a lot about, and at this early time, I’m honestly hesitant to hop on any one train. Prefacing that, there is one such candidate whose plain-talking, common sense solutions to many of America’s ailments continue to appeal to many grassroots conservatives; the same candidate who the Establishment has all but written off as a “joke” either because he hasn’t held elected office or because he’s spoken candidly and down-to-earth with the American People through his prior radio talk show before seeking the office of the presidency. That man is Herman Cain, and he continues to speak with the same integrity and volume. I recently happened upon a Fleming and Hayes piece in which Cain covers a wide array of issues throughout 17 short video segments. I’d encourage everyone to check them ALL out, but for time and space sake, I’ll focus on a few that deal  with economic solutions, as this topic coalesces with the most current budgetary and debt debates. Now, I’m certain these will be called ‘radical’, and perhaps so, but for all the wrong reasons, because they are conservative solutions; just as I’m sure Cain will be called ‘unelectable’ because of the reason’s mentioned above. Only time will tell how the primaries pan out for Herman Cain, but the message that he carries from the cozy small town New Hampshire diner…

…to Georgia’s GOP Convention of this past weekend…

is one that centers on reconnecting and empowering the American People with our Founding Principles towards government of the people, for the people, and by the people, with a larger appreciation for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness through common sense solutions.

"The idea that political freedom can be preserved in the absence of economic freedom, and vice versa, is an illusion. Political freedom is the corollary of economic freedom.” ~ Ludwig von Mises
