I used to like Herman Cain. I thought he was a good, intelligent and sincere man who cared about getting this country back on its feet, but I see now that I was mistaken. So what changed my mind about him? Well, here’s a list…
1. He has no foreign policy knowledge or experience whatsoever, and seems to stumble on even the simplest of foreign policy issues. A man who isn’t truly aware of what’s going on in the world has no business even running for the office of president. You have to know what kinds of people we’re dealing with, understand history, understand the mindset of different cultures and have some clue as to how to deal with foreign policy issues. He has none of those, and nor does our current muslim-loving, apologist in chief who has caused serious damage between us and our allies, and has done dramatic damage to our relationship with Israel. We don’t need another foreign policy idiot in the White House.
2. His 9-9-9 plan started out as a 9-9-9 plan, and now it’s got exceptions and he keeps changing things around, and this was a plan that was supposedly come up with by the best economists he could find. If that’s the kind of people he surrounds himself with, then once again, he has no business being president. We have enough of that crap going on with the current one. This plan, in any case, leaves a gaping hole for government to continue to raise our taxes while at the same time wasting countless billions, and even trillions of dollars in taxpayer money.
3. His recent comments about abortion and gay marriage. I was impressed that, even though he was once a minister, he had left social issues out of his campaign. This is as it should be. By their very nature, social issues are social, and government has no business sticking its nose in them whatsoever. Now he’s taken the utterly moronic position that he’s against abortion in ALL circumstances and against gay marriage and would sign constitutional amendments to ban both. Seriously, this complete lack of respect for our constitution, and his willingness to subvert its grand plan to accommodate the drooling masses of religious idiots in this country, is the very same reason I pulled my support from Bachmann. WE DO NOT, NOR SHOULD WE EVER LIVE IN A THEOCRACY, NOR SHOULD WE ASPIRE TO! Yet, that is what we’ll be left with should the brainwashed masses get their way. We all have to live in this country. Abortion is a personal issue that no one has any business whatsoever sticking their nose into. I don’t give two squats if your idiotic religion tells you that life begins at conception. It doesn’t. Cell division begins at conception, and until that fetus is capable of actually thinking, it’s nothing but a collection of cells. Don’t even get me started on the whole moronic stem-cell and respecting the sanctity of life crap. Gay marriage is again a personal issue. No one has ANY right to tell someone who they can love or spend their life with, much less the government. Gays pay taxes, work in our society, and even serve in the military. They’re just like the rest of us. They’re Americans, living in the same cities and towns, obeying the same laws, and are governed by the same constitution, that should NEVER be corrupted by the societal whims of a religious majority. That would be nationalized discrimination, much as it would be if all of a sudden all the white people in this country decided that all black people should be slaves again and got a constitutional amendment passed saying that slavery was once again legal.
So who’s left?
I pulled my support from Bachmann for her theocratic stand on social issues, and it sickens me that she claims to represent the Tea Party, which was never about social issues at all. I did support Gary Johnson for a while, until his comments after we killed Osama Bin Laden. Ron Paul is a crazy ass old goat who would totally screw our relationships with our allies, Rick Perry is another moronic theocrat, and Newt Gingrich is too blinded by religion and has too many skeletons in his closet (i.e. adultery and ethics violations) to be president.
That leaves me with one choice – Mitt Romney. Would he have been my first choice? No way in hell, but I would vote for him a million times over that big eared, utterly corrupt, undeniably inept, lying and narcissistic turd we have in office right now.
People in politics are too filtered to really tell it like it is. I’m not in politics, so I’ll say whatever the hell I think, and if they don’t like it, then too bad. That goes for anyone who doesn’t like what I just said. There’s been enough political correctness in this country. It’s time to call a spade a spade, and these people need to be called out on their BS.
Hell, maybe I should run for office. People need a good bitch slap of reality once in a while, and they’re sure as hell not getting it from any of our current crop of special interest owned douche bags. When you care more about getting re-elected and raising campaign money than you do about telling the truth and doing what’s best for this country and our people, and upholding the constitution that you’ve sworn to uphold, then you have NO business being in office. Period.
Ok, that’s my rant for the night. I’m just sickened by this whole thing. Last time we had that idiot McCain running because it was “his turn”, and now we have a crop of people running that remind me more of something that should be scraped off my shoe after a walk in the park than of anyone who should be holding elective office, much less the presidency.
Ok, my little bitch session is over. Feels good to unload once in a while. I have some other stuff going on, but I’ll save that for another post.(Current Mood: angry)
