WND: Spread the word: Cain is for real

WND: Spread the word: Cain is for real

© 2011
My late grandmother used to say: “They’re smart, but they’re still stupid.” I find that adage apropos pursuant to the political zeitgeist of today.

The problem with the program hosts and media and the beltway illuminati whose lead everyone else follows is that they associate and reason with mirror images of themselves. They have no idea who we “the American people” really are. They will deny what I’m saying, but they’ve long forgotten what life was like outside the cloistered Martha’s Vineyard bubble they now live in. And that’s for the ones who had a clue to begin with.

Their neighborhood’s idea of occupational diversity is driving a different color BMW X5 and/or S Class than their neighbor. It’s also the reason why we hear them and their guests ostensibly saying the same things, even if phrased differently. Which is why, I argue, we should listen circumspectly.

When you listen to them talk, they’ve got the political race all figured out. “Romney’s got the money,” they say. “He’s got the organization, he understands business, and he’s created jobs.” According to their models, hell would need to freeze over for Romney not to get the nomination. So, armed with talking points and their cocktail reasoning, they presume to have the answers.

Romney’s winning the nomination may make the Karl Rove /George Bush factions of the party happy – but if that scenario plays out it will only be because Republican voters held their collective noses and bought the lie that Romney is the only one who can beat Obama. The tea-party people are neither fooled nor taken in by Romney. And quite frankly, the thought held by many in the media and Republican hierarchy – that the Romney campaign would be a coronation walk – is as scurrilous to us as were the hateful screeds that Rove, Charles Krauthammer and John McCain’s daughter made about Sarah Palin.

Rove and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus may want Romney – but if the Party were smart, they’d be on bent knees with crucifixes, rosaries, or whatever, praying that Herman Cain would win. Herman’s winning may not be the death knell, but it would deal the left a blow from which they and their minions would never fully recover. It would change the face of conservative politics and elections for the foreseeable future.

More importantly, Herman Cain has the opportunity not to just win in a way that destroys the cookie-cutter campaign models. It’s precisely because Cain’s model doesn’t require raising the monies and having the nationwide organization that he has a chance to empower the people in a way not witnessed in modern history. I’m betting that one or more of the political geniuses thought about that, but dismissed it as impossible. Impossible, because they’re too smart to realize that they and their polls don’t know what the American people think. They only know what their mirror images tell them we think.

Herman is leading, and it’s not because he’s the flavor of the week. It’s because what he is saying and doing resonates with the people, and many of us believe it was doing so before the Florida debate that supposedly ignited his campaign. The dichotomy between Cain and the other candidates is night and day. Respected economic minds are supporting his 9-9-9 plan.

He speaks from the core of his being. His detractors have to come up with new phrases and political verbiage to define him. Their problem, in the final analysis, is they’re married to the old way of doing things. There is a synecdoche of the Constitution to the people and between opportunity and the person that is clearly understood in Cain’s message. His speeches don’t come across as canned or contrived. He’s not saying what he thinks we want to hear – he’s saying what needs to be said.

I believe if Cain is able to get the nomination, Obama’s war chest of money won’t spare him a crushing defeat. And just as important, he will end the hold race-mongers have over the minds of many. Cain is a man of the people – he’s a throwback to leaders of old. He is voicing heterodoxy different from the phony politically correct meliorism of others. He doesn’t stumble and stutter when not in front of a teleprompter.

A Cain victory would make it clear who has held people back – specifically blacks. There won’t be any questions about his citizenship, his love for country, or socialist associations. His first lady will be one who understands her role and the importance of the office her husband holds. It won’t have taken her entire life to be proud of her/our country. Her husband will not have to reinvent himself. Cain knows who he is and what he believes, and he doesn’t have to lie and obfuscate, because his interests are in the best interest of the people.

It’s up to those who believe that Herman Cain can lead this nation to step up. People need to tell theirs friends, colleagues, relatives and co-workers that Cain is for real. It’s also important for those who believe Herman can lead this nation to ignore those who are busy pointing out that he cannot win because he doesn’t have money or campaign offices in every town and city.

    Herman Cain / Allen West hmmmmm… “that there bears some studyin'” is what my old granpappy would say – rest his soul. That’s probably the best of all possible scenarios, but I don’t see it happening. I don’t think Mr. West is quite ready to let the media sharpen their talons on his backside. Still…

    Mr. Massie, sir, could you possibly write your comments on Mr. West one day?

    Herman Cain IS for real. He is the most REAL candidate there has been in my lifetime. I’ve never paid much attention to politics until now. I confess, I have my first political “crush.” I am rabid, in fact, and I think there are a lot of people who are also having this reaction. Herman Cain supporters don’t spend their energy trolling around, spewing hatred and trying to tear down the other candidates – they tend to focus on supporting Mr. Cain in every way they can to make sure he gets the nomination. Although I’m not Catholic, I’m doing my own version of being “on bent knees with crucifixes, rosaries, or whatever” – I’m SENDING MONEY to him every chance I can. Oh, and for sure “I’m praying that Herman Cain would win.” Praying hard and with every fiber of my being! Herman Cain can save this nation from the downward spiral we are currently in and restore the economy. More importantly, I believe he will restore our pride and unite all US citizens as One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty and Justice For ALL.

        No, Noooo!! It’s you, TOO. Herman is just my “Political” crush – you are my “Literary” crush!! Politics may come and go, but the ability to magically spin words into proselike common sense, as one magically spins sugar into delicious cotton candy… well, that is FOREVER!

            Yes, it is true I liked him first. Had I not been drawn to a Tea Party candidate, though, I would have never found you. So, in essence, you have Herman Cain to thank for my affections for you… See? He really is the REAL DEAL! ;-) (I am relentless – I will never allow you be hurt!!)

  10. Patriot / Eric October 22, 2011 at 5:36 am #

    Mychal, A friend ask me why I like Herman Cain. I answered that not since I was a twelve year old who places a JFK sticker on his bicycle basket have I been so impressed with a candidate. When I watched the first GOP debate Herman stood out with such strength of conviction and conservative values, that the others paled in comparison (No pun intended).From that point on I listened to every debate only to hear more form Mr.Cain. His heart is true he is Red. White and Blue. I pray for his well being and safe conduct in his mission to the White House. He displays more strength and sincerity than has been the case since Ronald Regan. There is something about an individual who speaks the truth, You know it when you hear it, as is the case of Herman Cain. When you know that he left a cancer bed so motivated for his grand children, and this country. Not for self grandeur but rather for the future of his beloved “City on the top of the hill”. Then you know him and his motivation. I want Herman Cain and Allen West to beat the rest. Please Pray for our new president and grant him the courage to face the adversity ahead of him. For the strength he will need to over come the same forces that took away from us my first candidate JFK. Thank You Mychal for the voice you give to this effort Eric

    Mychal, given the current top dogs and their racism, foul ups and lies, do you think that some misguided rednecks will say “See? I told you so.” and refuse to vote for Mr. Cain? That’s a terrible thought, but ……, I’m tread this dangerous ground here and only ask you a question that I think is important to discuss.

      As you know, racsim is not restricted to one race. I detect a hint of racism in your comments. I am a white male and proud to be called a Southern Redneck. I have listened to Mr. Cain’s speeches and I believe he is a straight forward, no nonsense man. I believe it is time we voters elect a person who is not part of the “political in crowd”.

      • Mychal
        Mychal October 22, 2011 at 1:27 pm #

        redneck but not misguided: there wasn’t racism in the comments nor was there any implied if you were replying to Sumitch…the question stems because just as you were quick to ascribe a motivation to comment that wasn’t warranted…people focus on race as they have been inculcated too…this is why we must move beyond racial assignations…the only thing racial assignation serve to do is divide…it only helps those who use same as currency…we people see Herman or whomever as a man not a color this and question and discussions like this will cease…that said you are also wrong because the definition of racist/racism as yo employed it is incorrect…we can start right here to put an end to said dynamicisms…it is reflexive lack of understanding that permits and encourages accusations of racism where there is none intended…

        • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

          Thanks Mychal. I know I’m not a perfect example of the everyday Honkey, but I try to not be insulting to people because of their color, their religion etc (well, maybe their political persuation). I knew it was a dangerous question, but think the way you and Judy do. Having said that, when 94% of a heritage vote for one of the same heritage, I get a distinct waft of racism. It’s a two edged sword. Crackers don’t have a monopoly.

    • Mychal
      Mychal October 22, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

      sumitch: I have more confidence in the people of America…for the handful of people who might dismiss Herman because of race there are legions who will support him because he is the best candidate…that said those that will surely despise him because of skin color are the liberals who hate his politics…

  13. Sumitch October 20, 2011 at 1:06 am #

    Mychal, I’m going to tread dangerous ground and ask you a question that I think is important. Given the current top dogs and their racism and foul ups and lies, do you think that some misguided rednecks will say “See? I told you so.” and refuse to vote for Mr. Cain? That’s a terrible thought, but ……

    I live in the great Republic of Texas and have just a few comments and observations. Perry is the governor that without parental approval wanted to have young girls in our state vaccinated. We found out later that the vaccine company had given one of his top people a pretty cushy job at a bunch of thousands of annual dollars and had made substantial donations to his re-election kitty. We also learned that young girls were dying from the vaccine in other states that did not get it stopped. Perry claims credit for his tax reductions. What he doesn’t tell you is that all the taxes he cut were simply picked up by local governments leaving the tax payer net zero. I’ve heard very little about his making nice with La Raza. We should all pay very close attention to that. They are a long way from being our friends. Finally, he lied to us about the trans Texas corridor being built that will consume millions of acres via eminent domain and the Spanish company that he selected to build it also gets to run it and enjoy the profits. Don’t let the media fool you once again by leaving out important information on the candidates they like. You have to do your own research to find the truth. Don’t pay any attention to what the politicians and media have to say. Talk to the people that lived under their terms. Like we used to say when I lived in Georgia and were asked if we were going to vote for Jimmah Cater. Our answer was “Hell yes. We’ll do anything to get him out of the state.”

    I think Herman Cain would make a great president. Paired with Allen West, we might be able to get somewhere. I say might because, no matter how many good ideas the presidency has, they won’t get anywhere without an agreeable congress to back them up.

      • Bill October 19, 2011 at 7:14 pm #

        I think it’s great that you have such a wonderful vocabulary, but it has it’s place, and that’s when talking to a person or persons that you know understand every word you speak. But when you are addressing the general public, a good nay even great orator will tone down his speach so that a greater portion of his readers can understand. Yes, people should use the dictionary and learn, but by the same token, a great orator tones down his ego to his audience level of understanding. I can’t imagine a speaker on a platform expecting his/her audience to carry a pocket dictionary with them just to understand his point. Perhaps I have missed something here. Just who is your audience anyway?

          bill: obviously you are part of that audience or you wouldn’t be on this page…that portion of my vocabulary, i.e. the one or two words that you may not understand are not my responsibility…if you are really interested you will ask me or look it up…if it bothers you to the extent you seem to be suggesting than you also have alternatives…I should also here state that pursuant to my ego…it seems to me that your arguments to the contrary notw/standing…you have a problem w/ anyone who is more informed, better cultured, or perceived more advanced than you…perhaps I’m wrong its just an observation…no insult intended…my suggestion would be that you publish according to your writing style and you give your speeches according to your spkg style…again all the best…

          • Bill October 19, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

            Nah, not all in the best. Your hostility is all too obvious. The man who mentioned this was polite, in my opinion, yet you unloaded on him with both barrels claiming him to be ignorant, lazy and a poor father. I guess I’ve always been for the under dog and took up his offense. BTW, his comment was merely a request for you to come down to his level a little farther simply because he likes you and wants to be able to understand what you say. Bye bye.

          When I was a young lad, age 19, I found myself overseas, in the US Air Force. I had not even graduated from High School but had awakened to the fact that it was MY failure, not my school’s for my predicament. So, I purchased Will Durant’s 10 volume series ‘The Story of Civilization’ and began to read and on the first page, I found 33 words I didn’t understand.
          Rather than to scream at Will Durant through the pages ‘hey, I don’t know these words, I purchased a dictionary and began using it and even reading Reader’s Digest’s ‘It Pays to Increase Your Word Power’.
          That reading and that dictionary changed my understanding, allowed me to grow and learn, rather than remain the passive and lazy victim that I had been.
          That ‘effort’ was worth it in every area of my life, not only in helping me to understand what others were seeking to share with me, but in allowing me to share with others on occasion some of the ideas in his books.
          You might ask yourself this ‘Bill’. Why should you ever WANT anyone to ‘dumb down their talk’ to you? You’re not a dummie or….???
          Simple words don’t always convey thoughts and ideas the best. You may have heard of the old military term ‘KISS’ (Keep it simple stupid). Yep, that was a common phrase amongst us enlisted guys BUT Bill, KISS don’t work when you are trying to build B-2’s, ICBM’s, F-35’s or HAARP systems.
          We need to ‘stretch’ sometimes when it makes us feel ‘dumb’ to not understand. I sure did and did something about it. How about you?

          • Bill October 19, 2011 at 9:11 pm #

            I can’t believe I’m reading this. When I was young I knew a man who was very successful. He had his own butcher shop and was doing quite well. One day I happened to learn that he couldn’t read or write and I asked my dad about it. He explained that the man had a learning disability and it was impossible. I congratulate you on your accomplishments. But I shudder at the thought of you or anyone else making the idiotic assumption that our brains are all created equal, and that our only differences are laziness. Shame, shame in you.
