This is very disturbing indeed, please read!

Posted Sunday, October 16, 2011, at 7:47 AM

While I know many of you support Cain whole heartedly, and I do like many of the things he has said, I came across this in the news and dug a little deeper and found more. I don't know if it will change how you feel about the man. I do know that at this point he is failing the stink test on two fronts. If you read both links it sure seems like everyone has been sold a bill of goods backed by big money special interest. Somehow I knew something like this would emerge. He rose too fast from a late start. Even if you don't like me or my views sometimes, please read these two articles so you have a better understanding of who and what you are supporting.

I am not doing this as an anti Cain anything. I'm doing this to try and produce an informed voter. God knows we have been sold a bill of goods so many times in the past.

Thank you in advance for even reading this even if you don't follow the links or read them.

God bless a truly FREE AMERICA!

Well someone understands where my fiscal ideas come from. Dave Ramsey is a doer not a finger pointer.

Thanks

Ramsey is right on the money about fiscal responsibility. Maybe someone should make him a czar to the treasury dept or the super committee.

He would whip this budget into shape in no time.

Mike, have you ever checked on Mr. Ramsey? I know I've brought his name up more than once. Listen to his show a few times and you will understand where I get a lot of my ideas from.

I know it sounds crazy, but I'd vote for Dave Ramsey in a heartbeat. Google him. Not a politician, as far as I can tell not a D or R.

I liked him too.

I am not sure that the majority of people are going to take any candidate at face value.

My husband David researches everyone and their personal and political views. And in turn keeps me informed of anything controversial. I don't always take his word for it, but respect that he is very thorough.

I still like Cain.

I will tell you that if there was a Democrat running for a certain office who met my criteria, I would strongly consider voting for them. Not for president perhaps but any other office.

Missouri had a crooked Mayor who claimed to be a Reverend in Kansas City. After he managed to get as much goodies at the taxpayer expense he moved on to be a US Representative with some shameful shenanigans of voter fraud in St. Louis. With redistricting, we might finally get rid of him.

And then he claimed that someone from the Tea Party spit on him. Not true. but He managed to incite things enough that some people believed him even after he failed to produce evidence.

I won't mention names because I don't want to be called a racist. I just know what happened here and how the media helped spread the lie.

Cain seems to be honest and straightforward. So far, no "handlers" have gotten their grips into him.

We don't want catch touchy feeling rhetoric, we want someone who is able and willing to get the job done instead of being in campaign mode for their entire term of office.

I can see that you two, Mike and Roy, are following the political scene closely. I hope you continue to keep us updated on all of this. I just don't have the stamina, fortitude, or the will to try to keep up with it. I know I should; but, if guys like you keep me informed, I won't have to. I WILL start watching a lot closer as the elections draw near. I have always voted for the candidates that I thought would get the job done right, whether Republican, Democrat, or other.

Back in Texas we had a Democrat that I always thought I should vote for, but never did. He was a Dem., but right wing on enough issues that a lot of conservatives voted for him and he kept the office until just a year or so ago. There was always another candidate that just leaned a lot farther to the right (supposedly) enough to get my vote.

Keep up the blogs. I really enjoy the ones I get a chance to read.

Mike, you know I'm not a liberal! I did this blog because not everything is as it seems, that's all.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
