Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Government, on the other hand, has no competition and has no need to make a profit, so they are inefficient and sloppy, unlike private corporations which must please and attract their customers in order to make a profit. Government is all overhead all the time: it costs the citizens of the nation money to support it, money edicted from them via taxes under pain of imprisonment if the taxes are not paid.
Only fools such as those who are participating in the "Occupy" movement would demand money and jobs from government, whose income derives from taxes, which makes it possible to redistribute the money the OWS fools demand, then block the coastal ports and the roads of major cities, keeping workers from their jobs and keeping products from reaching markets, which halts the very revenue the protesters are trying to obtain from government.
The OWS crowd blame corporations for the financial problems that Obama and other leftists have caused, when it's the government that failed to exercise oversight of Fannie, Freddie and the financial instruments being created all the time by the finance industry. And why did government fail in its oversight responsibilities? Because government employees (Senators and Congressmen) are in the pockets of the very finance industries they are supposed to oversee and control. One can't say that industry is above blame for its excesses, but government is ultimately culpable because it writes the laws and has the legal power to halt bad practices. And because legislators need the campaign contributions industry doles out, congressional overseers will not do their jobs, and have created the financial mess we're in today, which was caused by the fraud of sub-prime loans that government literally forced on mortgage companies, leading directly to our current economic troubles.
It's government, not industry, that has borrowed and printed us into national poverty.
It's government, not industry, that denies drilling for the oil and gas that literally keep us alive and fed.
It's government, not industry, that has blocked projects we badly need in order to expand the economy and create jobs.
It's government that issues regulations that cause industry to fail to grow, or cause it to actually shrink as a result of the government's intrusive regulations.
It's government that fines farmers (who provide our food, if anyone has forgotten) for raising dust when they plow, but won't prosecute admitted acts of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, and won't control our borders from illegal entry.
It's government, not industry which has grown enormously since Obama became president, and which will not control the spending of the tax money that it forces us to pay on penalty of imprisonment, while industry is having trouble making ends meet and keeping productive employees at work.
It's government that is destroying the best healthcare system in the world via Obamacare and its draconian and massive regulations.
And in particular it's the executive branch agencies of government that are unilaterally making laws in direct contradiction to the expressed wishes of congress, which created the agencies and assigned them their responsibilities in the first place, and are bringing our economy to a halt (the most egregious example of executive agency abuse is the EPA's insistence on pushing cap and trade regulations piece by piece, although congress specifically rejected these practices).
To save this great nation we must reduce the size, cost and intrusiveness of government by eliminating the EPA, the Departments of Energy, Education and Commerce and elect a new president and Senators who understand the value and importance of private industry. I was, after all, private industry that created the most robust economy and the largest and most comfortable and wealthy middle class the world has ever seen, and it has been government, under Barack Obama, that is well on its way to destroying that middle class forever.

For the last 80 years or so America has been drifting toward the leftist's objectives, and the last 3 years have seen this effort go into overdrive with massive E.P.A. regulations and a score of Obama's executive orders that have destroyed jobs, undermined retirement funds, caused vast numbers of people to lose their homes to foreclosure and caused small businesses to fail.
Some may call the Occupy Hooverville crowd an exercise in free speech, but their criminal actions are not "speech", their anti-hard work and anti-thrift demands are neither realistic nor sustainable, and their objectives will not lead to any form of freedom, except the left's continued insistence to freely take our property and personal liberties away. These idiots must be firmly opposed by the police and must be defeated in November 2012 with the removal of Obama and his leftist pals in congress.

Our president's ignorant proposals for fake jobs and his blocking of real jobs is psychotic, the man is demented for the suffering he is causing America. If this 747-hugging, golf-playing fool would stay in Washington and work for a change and try to get past his more radical tendencies we might get back on the road to prosperity once again. But don't bet on it with this truly lazy, pleasure-loving dedicated progressive-liberal man in office.

But I don't think Herman Cain would make a good Democrat candidate. I can't see him advising to "put some ice on that" or sympathizing that he "feels your pain", and I doubt that he is sufficiently fashion-conscious to recognize a good blue dress when he sees one, as our old dog Clinton did.

The book describes a society whose firemen set fires instead of extinguishing them, and a society which crushes free, independent thinking on the part of its citizens. Here are some parallels:
Consider our current Department of Education: are children learning more now than when the Department was formed? No! Students are learning less and are being indoctrinated more to socialist/communist thinking.
Does the Department of Energy provide fuel at a lower cost and in a more plentiful quantity than before this group was formed? No! We have much more expensive fuel and the quantity we are allowed to produce domestically has been greatly reduced, negatively impacting national security and our balance of trade with unfriendly nations.
And let's not forget the EPA which is issuing regulations in direct contradiction to the expressed wishes of Congress, and is issuing these regulations at a pace that is killing our nation's ability to create and maintain jobs and make products we need to live and provide comfortable lives for our families.
So why do we permit these executive departments to survive and undermine our prosperity and our freedom? Why hasn't congress refused funds to these anti-American groups? Each department mentioned should have their enabling legislation repealed and be disbanded immediately, saving us trillions of dollars each and every year and getting rid of liberal staffers and trouble makers at the same time.
Given the unbelievable deluge of executive orders and injurious regulations coming from the Obama Administration (and the fairy tale news reports we've been hearing lately) it's easy to imagine the formation of a Department of Religion in which Muslims can have the Crucifix removed from Catholic classrooms because it offends them, and where Catholic hospitals can be forced to perform abortions because liberals want them. After all, we already have Obamacare which was shoved down our throats with a promise to reduce medical costs and provide better medical assistance, but has in fact been shown to greatly increase medical costs and will reduce medical care for the entire nation.
For the last 70-plus years liberals in government have been intruding into our lives at an ever-increasing rate, but under Obama the pedal has been pushed to the metal and the intrusions have increased in quantity and with greater speed than ever imaginable in the past, propelling us to a totalitarian state, and our Barry still has a year left to push us nearer the brink. Can we survive? Only if we defeat Obama and retake the Senate in 2012, and we'd better begin by getting the House or Representatives to push their pedal to the metal and actively oppose the terror Obama is imposing on Americans, and remove the funding that is allowing this to happen.
