Herman Cain’s opening statement:

GovGaryJohnson In office I vetoed 750 bills, cut taxes 14 times & left the state with a $1 billion budget surplus: http://t.co/JXQEeSG. @140TownHall
Gary is the unknown Ron Paul....
his speach makes him sound a tad gay to boot...
Newt, McCain, and Palin have the same attorney (friend of mine)...
I think Palin is the smartest of the four...I was told 2 yrs ago she would not run.....but I wonder if she isn’t playin’ the other 3.....
I always wonder when this elite political establishment will hit bottom, and they keep surprising me by going lower.
I wonder if anyone believes George Washington would do something like this.
"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."
Nope. Just won't fit into 140 characters...
Maybe something from G.K. Chesterton:
"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." #gkchesterton
Hey, that's only 77 characters!
We’re all conservatives here, knock it off please.
I suppose your right. I haven’t seen Pat Buchanan around these parts since 2000. ;-)
