As I am a Republican, and will vote in our state primary. I will be voting for Mr. Cain. I can only guess what the progressive non-Republicans on this forum will answer.

Romney is a RINO, Perry has an oil rich state but has created many minimum wage jobs and has educational management issues. Romney presents a difference without a distinction with Obama on almost all issues. Perry doesn't present a track record of higher than minimum wage economic job creation.

Of those running, Cain is conservative, and believes in the private sector. He grew up poor, and learned how to be successful. His life story is admirable. At first I wasn't going to vote for him due to his lack of experience. However having seen him on interviews at Fox News and MSNBC, he seems articulate, and thoughtful. Maybe not having a career politician would be a better change than the last change candidate who is bankrupting our nation.

If nominated, it'll be the rich prep school lawyer from Hawaii vs the rich businessman who grew up poor and made it as a black in the south.

Obama went to mostly white prep school in Hawaii. then to exclusive schools in California and New England, while Cain went to mostly black schools in the south. Two very different experiences.

Cain's father was a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur, Obama's was a drunk, socialist. Cain's mom was a domestic worker, Obama's mom was happiest having children by men of color from other countries and collecting welfare as needed.

Cain comes from a poor southern family that worked. Obama comes from a very messed up background, relied on welfare and racial preference.

Cain went to Morehouse College, Obama went to a mix of mostly white colleges.

Cain worked for the Navy in a civilian capacity, Obama worked against the U.S. as an activist. Obama's wife was proud of our country for the first time when her husband was nominated to be President. The Cains see, to have alwasy loved our nation.

America has produced these two men with very diverse and differing world views. It'll be fascinating if we are blessed to see them both debate.

We have an amazing country which has produced many diverse people. Cain and Obama represent stark distinctions of how Americans prosper.

If I was a Republican, which I'm not, I'd vote for Jon Huntsman.

If I were a Democrat, I'd switch to an honest party pronto.

Cain does interview well. I've seen him a couple of times now. However, his ultra-conservative views when it comes to some issues might scare away the more moderate GOPs.

As for your views regarding Pres. Obama...I'll just let those go because they are not what I was asking about. Trying to say that Mr.Cain is a 'better black man' than Pres. Obama...

Too bad the question can't just be answered without insults or trying to get digs in...

Neither man is better than the other. They each have a distinct background, and take on life. Both deserve to be heard, voters should decide.

At no time did I say Mr. Cain was a 'better black man' than President Obama. They have very different life experiences and very different views about the world.

If you like government control over just about everything, think America is bad, think we are selfish as a nation and must accept lower living standards, you have one choice. If you love liberty, prefer prosperity, and believe we can have a higher living standard in the future, there could be another choice. Assuming Mr. Obama has the opportunity to run against Mr. Cain.

I doubt there will be an opportunity for such stark choices if any other Republican candidate runs against Obama.

No insult or dig was offered. Just facts.

I'd post them all, but I'm sure it would be considered a "board disruption" and I'm not going there.

If you have a question about something I posted in this thread, ask away. I'll be happy to provide a link and small quote that supports it.
