There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Beyond the Spin

There has been much hype in the last week or so about Herman Cain's rise to the top of the GOP contender list for President. But there is little facts being told about him and the other candidates in the running.

We all know by now that Cain was a former Federal Reserve director and stood against any audits. He called Alan Greenspan a "great" leader during his (Cain's) tenure at the Fed. Cain has some other issues that will keep me from making him President.

Both Herman Cain and Mitt Romney support the Patriot Act, with Cain stating that he agrees with 90% but will not say what he doesn't agree with. He thinks that it is okay to give up liberties for a "sense of security." Ron Paul voted against it and remains opposed to it as unconstitutional.

Originally, Cain agreed with Ron Paul and was against the assassination of American citizens on foreign soil. He has since flipped on the issue and fully supports Obama's decision to kill Al-Awlaki. Mitt Romney fully supports the assassinations of Americans. Ron Paul disagrees and said that every U.S. Citizen has the right to trial by due process and if guilty punished severely but lawfully.

Herman Cain feels that States should be allowed to take gun rights away. Romney who back in 1994 stated, "I don't line up with the NRA." But in 2007 when he made a bid for the presidency, he said, "I am now a proud member." Ron Paul fully supports the 2nd Amendment as it is written and without restriction.

 "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

There are others issues that question the viability of Herman Cain as a candidate, such as his backing of TARP and stating that those who opposed TARP were "economic morons." Romney said he thought it necessary in March, 2009. By September of that same year he flipped and opposes it. Ron Paul voted against it in Congress and he was the only public official who predicted the banking crash years before and everyone ridiculed him. Paul also warned of the housing bubble and they ignored him again.

Both Cain and Romney support a border fence, while Paul calls for bringing troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan and placing them at the border to protect the citizens. He also calls for social programs that are funded through taxpayers to prohibit non-citizens from receiving benefits from social programs, which would remove incentives from illegals wanting to come to the US by other than lawful immigration procedures. It is a glaring obvious fact that major media opposes Ron Paul because he stands against all of the corporate cronyism that 12 terms in Congress have demonstrated to him. 
He is the ONLY Presidential candidate that fully supports the Constitution and his voting record in the House of Representatives proves his commitment and integrity to those high standards they We the People demand from our elected representatives.

What will YOU do?
