This is great news, but why were they supporting Cain in the first place? His links to the Federal Reserve were blatant.
Do they even know what the Federal Reserve banking system is? Please don't take offense at this but I am quite curious to know.
I can explain it from my own point of view, although I certainly can't speak for everyone.
First of all, notice I am from Georgia. I have listened to Herman Cain for years on the radio here, as he often filled in for radio talk show hosts
out of Atlanta. I always liked what he had to say.
I was an early tea party supporter (back before it was called the "tea party" by everyone, and we had "tax day tea party events" here locally
(Taxed Enough Already). It wasn't so much a "political party" as it was a protest event. So of course I have always liked what Ron Paul had to
When Herman Cain announced that he was running for president, I was excited to support him. Many of his positions seemed to match mine, as both of us
were tea party supporters. We both agreed that the federal government is out of control, and I was also interested in him because he has never been
in politics. Say what you will about him, but he has been successful in business, and therefore knows what makes an attractive business climate.
As I already said, I have also always been attracted to Ron Paul as a candidate; however, I have seen my conservative friends write him off as a kook.
Those same conservative friends got excited about Herman Cain. While I would always have supported Ron Paul (especially over all of those other
choices), Herman Cain seemed like a candidate who could actually WIN.
Now that Cain is out, those of us who always liked Ron Paul (but weren't convinced he was electable) have no one else to support. Everyone else
seems to be an absolutely repulsive choice.
And those who always considered Ron Paul to be a kook are left with those other clowns. Ron Paul suddenly looks better by comparison.
I know the Federal Reserve issue confuses a lot of hard core Ron Paul supporters. How could anyone support Cain and Paul, because they have such
different positions on the Federal Reserve? It's because the Fed isn't on most Americans' radar. They just know they want something to change in
Washington. Cain represented change. Now, Ron Paul seems to be the ONLY one left who represents change.
I hope and pray that the Cain supporters ALL move over to the Ron Paul camp. I'm packing up my tent now. :-)
