As I’ve previously mentioned in numerous other posts, I am a big fan of Herman Cain for president in 2012. Cain has outlined a five-point tax plan to put America back on top and to undo the anti-American trail our president and his liberal counterparts have been blazing through a forest of American logic and economic rationale, which already had its paths carved out. Here are Cain’s ideas and take note of how utterly different and full of sense his ideas are in contrast to what has defined the last 2 1/2 years of decision making in this country.

1. Eliminate the taxes on repatriated profits, which are earnings of American-based multinational companies that sit in bank accounts overseas to avoid double taxation for bringing their profits back to the U.S.

2. Make the current tax rates permanent. Families and businesses do not plan for two years at a time!

3. Reduce the corporate income tax from 35 to 25 percent, with the potential for additional incremental decreases over time.

4. Eliminate the tax on capital gains and their dividends.

5. Suspend payroll taxes for both employees and employers for one year.

Herman Cain is a proven leader and has a successful track record of turning large scale, borderline bankruptcies right side up. Our economy is in serious jeopardy, and Barack Obama and liberal ideology is doing nothing to make matters better.

Herman Cain intends to increase opportunity and expansion for those who desire to work hard and invest their time and money in an America that works. One of the primary reasons businesses are harboring so many dollars that they refuse to spend is because they have little confidence in Obama’s economic decisions or in his second term. This is only my opinion, but there is certainly a very big reason that so few American companies are contributing even half of their resources to attempt to keep our economy afloat. There is an immense lack of confidence in something in this country. It is certainly not doubt in hardworking American people. I think it is quite reasonable to believe it has much to do with Congress and our president.

I think there are a lot of people hoping this guy gets voted out in November 2012 and they have no reason to waste their money on Barack Obama’s plans when something as beneficial and fair as Herman Cain’s plan is potentially right around the corner. Rewarding businesses and making things easier for them, and interfering less with individual Americans, not raising taxes; these are all great ideas. And, for any of you out there who care little for hard work and the rewards that follow, and perhaps you cherish entitlements and avoid opportunity like the plague, by voting for a president in 2012 that does not want to raise taxes and wants to give huge breaks to Corporate America and maybe even let the wealthy keep their wealth, you will have a much better shot at riding out the ability to accomplish nothing and to earn money for it with Someone Else than you will with another four years of Barack Obama.

Just my opinion.

This is an interview Walton and Johnson conducted with Herman Cain today.

1,262.4 miles to go.

  1. "Compassionate conservatives [...] offer a new way of thinking about the poor. They know that telling the poor that they are mere passive victims, whether of racism or of vast economic forces, is not only false but also destructive, paralyzing the poor with thoughts of their own helplessness and inadequacy. The poor need the larger society's moral support; they need to hear the message of personal responsibility and self-reliance, the optimistic assurance that if they try – as they must – they will make it. They need to know, too, that they can't blame "the system" for their own wrongdoing."

    A good article on compassionate conservatism. Herman Cain is mentioned in it.

    "Conversely, the policy has also been attacked from the right: commentator Herman Cain criticized compassionate conservatism as leading to the Bush administration's increased government spending, saying that it "completely betrayed conservative voters and their decades of grassroots activism," and "alienated the party's conservative base," noting Bush policies such as the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, which increased the size of the Medicare program by around $500 billion.[20]
