Day395 Wednesday 09/28/11

ran 3.8 miles
Herman Cain has always been the Republican presidential candidate I have admired most and backed the most. He has advancing ideas, a proven track record, and, while his greatest weakness is foreign affairs, he advocates listening to appointed Generals and leaders who are actually in the trenches or in the nations where decisions need to be made and then reacting accordingly. Ronald Reagan did an astounding job with the U.S.S.R. and he was a celebrity, turned governor, turned president.

I see an aura surrounding Herman Cain as the man that brings this divided country back together. Barack Obama has literally zero to campaign on, based on his achievements, and all that is left is to further divide this country in order to get reelected. Telling blacks to quit grumbling and whining and to put on their marching boots is a form of dividing a national population that is struggling together. Not telling Hispanics, Asians, and whites to do the same is…one-sided for lack of a better term.

In a selfish way, aside from the many genuine reasons he deserves, I like Mr. Cain for the reason that he would eliminate the race card that sits so readily available in the sleeve of all who carry the liberal playbook in their back pockets. If Herman Cain were to become the National Republican Nominee, people like Van Jones, Cynthia McKinney, Sheila Jackson Lee, and even our own president would be unable to further divide this great nation with racial excuses instead of united goals to succeed.

One glaring example of incompetent rhetoric some of these above-mentioned individuals utter daily is the accusation that the Tea Party is racist and that it wants to weaken the middle class. For one thing, the Tea Party admires Herman Cain and, for another, the color of his skin has nothing to do with the highly productive problem-solving logic he brings to the table. Furthermore, those who oppose Barack Obama are, I think, as blind to his Caucasian half as they are to his black half, and they, and myself, simply see an inexperienced man who has no place in the Oval Office.

The picture at the top of the page is from the Berkeley Bake Sale that occurred today. Republican students at the university put this bake sale on and they charged cupcakes at different rates based on ethnicity and gender. On the surface, it appears simple to pull out the race card and to bobble your head around with assuming remarks. But if you dig a bit deeper it is actually a brilliant idea these students came up with. They made a small scale replica of our nation at large in regards to issues like affirmative action all the way to some states’ decisions to give illegal aliens huge tuition breaks. Here is the full story and you form your own opinion, but I think what they did was effective, brilliant, and extremely low budget in contrast to the immense message they were conveying.

903.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day30.
