Actually Cain will beat him like a Red Headed stepchild. Reid was in NV and the Country Club destroyed the Tea Party candidate.
Pray for America
Cain 999 tax plan, it is a catchy phrase but it is a political killer. You cannot win elections when you are telling the 50% of the population who pay zero taxes after filing all their deductions under the current tax code that they have to pay a mandatory 9% taxes on their income with zero deductions and an additional 9% national sales tax on every item they purchase including the basic items such as food and clothing.
At the same time Hairy Reed had the miners unions behind him ~ the entrepreneurial middle class having already evacuated the state during its current Great Obama Depression.
He did not have an overwhelming victory. He barely made 51% in a three-way race. He'd won the 2004 race with over 60%.
Sharon Angle failed to pull in enough Democrats, and there was that third party candidate (Tea party the data says, hunh?), and 2.2% for NONE OF THESE CANDIDATES ~ a Nevada peculiarity. Kind of like the 00 on the roulette wheel ~ gives the House a tremendous advantage every single time.
We all must note that the LEFT COAST stayed uniformly Democrat ~ which is a long term problem we will probably need to address with re-education camps, or maybe cut off their water or something (except Fresno BTW).
Don't blame your fellow Republicans for Senate losses in the far West.
Cain is very beatable by Obama because Cain’s supporters are not vetting him. He’s run for 2 elected offices,(2000 POTUS and 2004 Senate) and he has both given and received endorsements. He had a newspaper column and a radio show. He has a record out there. And you can bet Obama, the establishment Republicans and the MSM are going over it with a fine tooth comb.
I find it ironic that a party that calls itself Taxed Enough Already is supporting a candidate that wants to implement a new tax. Is this national sales tax going to apply to internet sales? As I understand it, this whole thing relies on scrapping the current tax code. Yet, Mr. Cain is talking about Empowerment Zones. These are authorized through the tax code. If the tax code is scrapped, does he intend to establish a new agency to administer the Zones? Personally, I am tired of giving money to areas that continually vote Democrat and then expect the rest of the nation to bail them out of their financial difficulties. Before Cain tells me about 9-9-9, he needs to tell me about cut-cut-cut.
This election, we’re not only fighting the Democrats, but also the Republicans. Remember the last minute George W. Bush DUI story? What happens if at the last minute the MSM reveals Cain was endorsed in 2004 by Joe Beasley, Operations Director of the SE Region of Rainbow/PUSH. Beasley is a man who loathes Clarence Thomas because Thomas is “black as the sun” but he appears to be comfortable endorsing Cain. How do we justify that endorsement? Oh they attend the same church and are friends. Isn’t that what Obama said about Wright and Bill Ayers?
Vet Herman Cain. Knowing where he stands on issues is not smearing him. We need to either prove, or disprove what is said about his record. GA freepers who remember the 2004 election need to weigh in. This site presents some of his record from 1999 to the present:
This time the fate of the nation really does rely on getting it right.
