Herman Cain to join rally against climate alliance
Politico ^ | 6/7/11 | DARREN SAMUELSOHN

Posted on 06/08/2011 9:42:29 AM PDT by kingattax

GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain will headline a Wednesday rally in downtown New York to protest a regional global warming compact.

Cain joins the Koch-affiliated Americans for Prosperity's rally, which is scheduled for noon and is expected to draw a couple of hundred tea party supporters who want to put an end to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

AFP last month notched a big win when it got New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to drop out of the 10-state cap-and-trade program for power plants. Now, AFP is looking for more states to take Christie's lead.

Mike Proto, the group's spokesman, said Cain is the only GOP White House contender to accept a request to speak at the rally, which coincides with one of RGGI’s emission allowance auctions. "Invitations are extended to all the presidential candidates," he said.

Conservative talk radio host Steve Malzberg is also expected to speak at the rally.

This guy, Herman Cain, has more common sense, more business sense, more practical sense, than most life long politicians.

Great, Herman will be on the right side of the issue + getting some face time.

I like this slogan for Herman:

“Let’s do it RIGHT this time!”

Works on several levels. >> As in: Don’t screw up the 2012 election. > Vote based on Conservative principles. > Elect the right black man this time.

When is Mr. Cain.....in fact when ARE Mrs. Palin, Mr. Romney, Mr. Gingrich, Mr. Pawlenty, Mrs. Bachman, Mr. Christie, etc., etc., etc. going to put forth a cogent, well thought out, workable, SPECIFIC, policy to follow that will create private sector jobs?

Whoooopin' it up over the silly "climate change" issue does little if any good on the primary issue of this upcoming campaign...JOBS.

Empty slogans and epithets such as "I'll lower the corporate tax rate", and "I'll make the Bush Tax Cuts permanent", and "Let's bring manufacturing back to the US!" and other such rhetorical gems mean absolutely nothing. They are not policy....they are cheerleading.

And after the stain's silly mantra of "hopey-changey", I've had a belly full of cheerleading.

Without real, earned wage, non-union jobs; the economy will fail.

Please don't continue to screech your "promises" at us. Stop telling us all about what you're going to do.

Instead....try this: TELL US SPECIFICALLY HOW YOU INTEND TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR OBJECTIVE(S).

It just might work....but until then, you're nothing more than hot air.

Koch-affiliated Americans for Prosperity's rally

Hmm. Why the preface "Koch-affiliated"? Do they preface groups that are funded by George Soros as "Soros-affiliated"?

I think it’s the first the first step in a larger plan to portray Cain as a puppet of the right—an Uncle Tom that has turned his back on his race.

Remember, the Koch’s are “evil” as far as the left is concerned, becuase they support conservative causes. They’ve been working on demonizing them for a while, so in their mind associating anyone with the Koch’s is a smear.

I’ve noticed a flurry of news stories starting this week that mention both Cain and the Kotch brothers. It’s obviously a coordinated effort (JournOlist-2 must be up and running).

Cain has issued a position paper on exactly the steps he’d take to create jobs and turn the economy around.

It’s out there, if you’d take the time to look for it.

Or you can continue to be uninformed, make uninformed statements, and wait for someone else to spoon feed you the information.

The choice is yours. What are you going to do?

"....but until then, you're nothing more than hot air."

Cain heavily supports the policy that has the best chance of not only restoring our economy, but would quickly expand it, making us once again the economic colossus we once were.

It's the Fair Tax, and none of the other candidates and wannabes even have the balls to utter the words.

I’ve said it a million times, lowering tax rates without

ELIMINATING WHOLE DEPARTMENTS

means the DISCRETIONARY SPENDING will FORCE HIGHER TAXES DOWN THE ROAD.

Eliminate departments, practically ALL non-military discretionary spending - TERMINATE FEDERAL EMPLOYEES BY THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS -

OR AMERICA FACES CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS

AS WE DEFAULT ON OUR CRUSHING DEBT AND JOBS START DISAPPEARING FAST, MARKETS COLLAPSE, THE DOLLAR COLLAPSES AND WE SINK INTO SHORTAGES AND CIVIL UNREST.

This is because INTEREST ON FEDERAL DEBT is getting higher every year and TAX RECEIPTS are going down because PERSONAL INCOME IS STAGNANT AND PERSONAL WEALTH IS ERODING AMONGST THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE POOR.

The ONLY WAY OUT

is for PRIVATE CITIZENS TO ACT.

Congress is PARALYZED

fretting about getting RE-ELECTED.

GOVERNMENT WILL NOT BE THE ANSWER - IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

NO MATTER WHO IS IN OFFICE.

Because no one in government or big business can

SEE

a solution.

I’ve listened for YEARS - since the fall of 2007 - to the talking heads, read news, waited for some business to express the RIGHT IDEA and the right idea has never ever been elucidated once.

Everyone, wealthy investors included, seems to have forgotten the fundamentals of business and free enterprise. If we operated morally and correctly, we’d have tremendous prosperity, which would “lift all boats”, i.e., benefit everyone more than where we’re going - even wealthy investors. No one is putting forth a vision and leading on this because they don’t have the vision.

I’ve got a few ideas for any ultra-conservative capitalists out there who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work, I invite you to visit my profile and we can talk.

Who knows ? Maybe we’ll avert disaster, re-teach the world about what free enterprise is and how it works - and make a buck while we’re at it.

If you think the "silly climate change issue" is overshadowed by the jobs issue, consider this: Cap-and-Trade has the potential to totally bankrupt millions of American businesses. Think it through, then consider the one candidate that understands this.

THANK YOU THANK YOU for shoving folks self induced ignorance back in their faces. In fact, Pawlenty, who I do not support, has also come up with some good specifics on creating jobs in addition to Cain. And I’m sure the others will.

Besides, if you know what these people are about, and they ALL HAVE ENOUGH HISTORY on which to judge, you will instinctively know where they will be on most issues. But thanks for flaming those that needed it.
