Huh? What’s your point? Did you read the comment I was replying to?
The poster said they were a Sarah supporter, liked Cain and wanted to donate. I figured they may like to get a collectors edition of the book and maybe learn more about the candidate while making the donation. I personally think it’s a great idea and purchased several as Christmas gifts for some relatives.

I think many of us SP waiters will join the Cain Train if she doesn’t run. While we were watching Sarah last night I told my hubby she wasn’t running but she would endorse Cain. That, of course, was just a reaction to what she was saying, I don’t pretend to know what she is really thinking! ;-)
She has said all along she wouldn’t run if the right candidate entered...........

Hey Just... Although I truly appreciate what you said, the whole idea behind a Constitutional Republic is that the individual soverign states are free to do whatever the citizens in those states vote to have them do. The Chief Executive of the Federal Government should have no/limited influence on the policies of the individual states.

If citizen A's wishes are not carried out in favor of the wishes of a greater number of his fellow citizens in a particular state, the system was set up to afford citizen A the freedom to relocate himself to another state who's citizens’ beliefs are more in line with his own.

Our Founding Fathers were some pretty smart dudes.

I thought you were trying to make a point that $150 was extravagant for a book.

If you weren’t, then I apologize. I have been having to deal with Ron Paul trolls, Obamabots and haters all day.

How about instead of ANY Inaugeral Festivities, the next President DECLARE a FULL Week of prayer, repentance and fasting.

Agreed. But who would heed it. The world would revolt at the idea that they need to repent of anything. Unfortunately, so would most of the church.

And your doing a great job at dealing with those trolls and haters. Your responses have been point on and quite frankly have satisfied some of my own personal concerns regarding 9-9-9. Your a very effective advocate for Cain. My wife and I are with you 100% and are spreading the word to the folks here in our South Jersey community.

Herman Cain ran a branch of the fed, and also liaised while at the restaurant assoc. It is not the strongest though. Maybe Palin for VP again?

...But when they're held for pleasure...

Yes, and the current WH residents do have big ones to have pulled the stunts they have. ;)

How about Mrs. Cain? Will she be flown to multi-million dollar resorts in Spain, surrounded by security details, will she return in separate planes, wear $4,000 bracelets??

I wager she likely would not ....

You wrote:

“Although Cain says he supports the Second Amendment, in the next breath he says he *fully* supports *any and all* state gun control/prohibitions.”

In contrast stand the facts of what he actually said, in context:

BLITZER: All right. Let’s talk about gun control. Do you support any gun control?

CAIN: I support the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: So you don’t — so what’s the answer on gun control?

CAIN: The answer on gun control is I support strong — strongly support the Second Amendment. I don’t support, you know, onerous legislation that’s going to restrict people’s rights in order to be able to protect themselves as guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: Should states or local governments be allowed to control the gun situation? Or should...

CAIN: Yes.

BLITZER: The answer is yes?

CAIN: The answer is yes. That should be a state’s decision.
