I am extremely disappointed in Herman's endorsement of Newt Gingrich
« on: Today at 07:02:49 AM »
This is very hard for me to write for I was an staunch Herman Cain supporter. Most of the members of our forum supported Herman because we believed he was an outsider in the presidential race for the republican party. We viewed him as a common sense businessman that could bring great traditions and ideas back to this country to fix this huge mess we are in today.
Our forum hosted 2 fundraising events for Herman Cain, we supported him with all our heart and soul, we believed in him.
Shortly after Herman dropped out of the race our forum voted to endorse congressman Ron Paul for president for he was the only outsider left in the presidential race for the republican party. We were asked to endorse Newt Gingrich, in short we declined because we here knew that Gingrich is not a conservative, he is a progressive, big spending, big government guy and his past record showed this. Gingrich made millions off the tax payers and just under 2 million alone from Freddie Mack the housing lender that took billions of dollars in tax payer bailout money while millions of people lost their homes. Newt claimed in an earlier debate he was paid $30,000 a month as a historian, we knew this answer was bullshit just like most of what comes out of Newts mouth. Then last week he claimed he was paid as a consultant, yes this sounds more like it, so again Newt lied just like he usually does, By The Way : Consultant is the alias for lobbiest.
Most of us here knew Gingrich was not a conservative and this is why we refused to endorse Gingrich, but now Herman Cain has endorsed the one person in the race that is the furthest from conservative as you can get compared to the other candidates. Why did Herman do this? I can only believe that Herman has sold out and sold out his supporters by his endorsement. The Herman Cain we all knew and supported would have never endorsed Gingrich.
After our endorsement of Ron Paul we here still supported Herman Cain and said if he were to jump back in the race he would have our full support and we meant it.
I am now left to believe that Herman was not the man we thought he was, he wasn't the outsider at all, if he really was he never would have endorsed the biggest insider in the race. There was some other motive here and it has left me to withdraw my support for Herman Cain should he decide to run again. I will not be supporting Gingrich even if he becomes the nominee, I could never vote for him, I will either stay home or possibly vote 3rd party.
Some will say to me now that voting 3rd party will only be throwing my vote away and be a win for Obama, well I have two things to say about that statement.
# 1 : I only throw my vote away when I vote for someone I could never support, I will no longer vote for the lesser of two evils any longer, that is exactly why this country is in trouble today, we must stop voting this way and make a stand. Also, when you vote for the lesser of two evils what you get in the end is still EVIL! I will no longer vote for evil EVER!
# 2 : Gingrich will be worse than Obama, keep in mind that everything Obama is doing now Gingrich supported all the way up until he decided to run for President, so yes, he will be worse than Obama.
This is a very sad day for me and many others on this forum. I would appreciate any comments all of you have on my opinion here.
Vote Ron Paul 2012
