The Classic Liberal: The Mysterious Herman Cain

I was visiting one of my favorite sites The Classic Liberal and was intrigued by the title of one of his post “The Mysterious Herman Cain” and I must say I learned a great deal.  It’s a very solid analysis of the man that many claimed won the South Carolina debate last week.  I for one felt strong about Herman Cain after the debate; however I still needed to do my homework.  I do my homework on candidates using a variety of sources to include first-rate bloggers like Mike from The Classic Liberal.  Below is a teaser from his post.

Herman Cain has been generating a lot of buzz in conservative circles lately. He’s “enthusiastic,” “positive,” and “inspiring” we’re told. But none of these things has anything to do with the Constitutional duties of the president.

So, what do we actually know about the supposed “Godfather of Common Sense,” Herman Cain? And what does it tell us about his governing philosophy?

This is exactly what I wanted to know.  Who is Herman Cain and what does he stand for?  I want to make sure that whoever I throw my support behind, that I know them like my spouse on the issues and where they stand because I’m going to ask him or her to live in the house we all pay for.  I also believe it is my responsibility as a voting citizen of this great nation to know who I’m supporting.  We have a variety of sources to aid us so we need to use them.  No more free passes.  Below is another powerful excerpt from his post.

What the Fed has done to our money shouldn’t surprise anyone, destruction is what tyrants do best. That conservatives are supporting Herman Cain, however, should scare the living daylights out of you. Because if a former central banker is considered a “conservative” in America today, we’re no longer on The Road to Serfdom. We’ve arrived.

I strongly encourage anyone who is leaning towards Herman Cain to read the entire post here>>.  I’m not promoting this article to sway your support for Herman Cain, I have always believed an informed voter is dangerous to the status quo and this is something we must all become no matter who we currently support.  After reading the post you might decide that it impacts your support for Mr. Cain very little, or you might decided to take a closer look at the man, either way in my opinion you will be better informed.  Mike did a great job highlighting some key points about Herman Cain’s position on the issues that are impacting our country.  What you thought you knew about this man might change after reading it.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Thanks for the link. I’ve been trying to sound the alarm about Herman Cain through comments. The last thing we need is a candidate who gets his marching orders from the same people as BO.

    I have been taking a hard look at Hermain Cain and I first heard about his ties to the fed at Conservative Hideout, I didn’t know about it before that, thanks for sharing this I will be checking out that link shortly.

    A lot of people are concerned that Cain doesn’t have political experience. That doesn’t concern me – a president has tons of advisors who would help him sort those issues out. What I want is good judgment, which requires two things: 1) real life experience (he’s got that), and 2) a philosophical spine. If a candidate has those two qualities, do I agree with his philosophy, and to what extent? It is the second part of the equation that is questionable.

      I believe that candidates have to be in touch with the reality we live each and every day. I also believe they must have some sort of work experience and community organizing does not count. They must stand by their word and be principled.

    I was very high on Herman Cain. However, his positive attitude toward the Fed I find very bothersome. I agree with what you said the other day. We need a candidate that excites the people. I no longer see one. Hopefully he or she is just over the horizon.

    Cain is also on record in favor of the gold standard. If we quit borrowing, the Fed will dry up and go away for lack of business. If we pull the plug, the US becomes a 3rd world country in about 15 minutes. If we continue to elect leftists, the Golden Goose will croak forthwith, and this mess will be fixed by a complete reboot- ugly, but effective. Given the systemic nature of our problems, reboot may be the only truly effective solution. Just considering body language and listening to one’s built in BS detector, anyone past age 5 can tell that Cain is an honest man. His track record says the same. He even speaks clear, plain English rather than politspeak. This has to be preferable to our current crop of clowns…

      I’m not saying he doesn’t have some good points, what I am saying is we must take the time to research these candidates. As I said I have some more research to do but I do agree with you when you say he is more preferable than what we have now.

    I agree with JC that “candidates have to be in touch with the reality we live each and every day” as well as “they must have some sort of work experience”. Both of these positive factors – in an odd way – makes him unattractive to part of the ‘purists”.
    In final balance his economic views are educated and contain a good mix of common sense. That said, HC is still not a rounded candidate acceptable to the majority of the American people until he defines with more precision and honesty his understanding and policy options in foreign affairs. It is not acceptable – as he stated in the SC debate – that he would just follow the advice of the experts and advisors in this matter.
    It is early, and I believe he will refine his presentations and tell us more of who he is. I am still open in the issue.
