Do you think the black wing of the GOP is inspiring for blacks?

what relevance should skin colour have for political party?

If you want the government to write you cheques for absolutely no reason, you vote for a liberal.

If you believe people should be responsible for themselves in all but the most dire and unavoidable circumstances, then you vote for a conservative.

It's not about black or white, it's about parasites versus providers.

Herman Cain wants to drop corporate taxes from 35 percent to only 9 percent, while doubling taxes on the working poor by taxing all foods, fuels, beverages, clothing, and home purchases!

In other words, Herman Cain would steal food from the mouths of hungry children and let the rich corporate fatcats keep more money from their bailouts while paying a tiny tax on their profits!

Herman Cain and Broke Obama are disasters for all Americans!

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy..." - Loren Collins

Even the "working poor" should have some skin in the game and pay taxes. But those tax rates need to be as low as possible and consistent, allowing the poor to work their way out of poverty without undue hardship. When the taxPAYERS are voted on to pay extra taxes, by non-taxpayers, the system will inevitably collapse. The "rich" did not get that way by luck, but by hard work. 70% of the "rich" are first generation, and got there by working very long hours, 6 and 7 days per week, without vacations or luxuries, investing ALL of their assets productively, and by adding to their economic acument. This dedication is a rare commodity among the poor. And yet, the gimmee's still want a "cut" of what others have worked so long and hard for.

No, all working people SHOULD pay something in taxes. When they vote for taxes for the "other guy", they will understand, directly and immediately, what a tax hike is. This is not taking the food out of the mouths of babes. It encourages people to do better, by their own volition, and to not dump their burden onto others

Herman's Nein Nein Nein plan: Eliminates Social Security! Eliminates Medicare! Reduces tax rates on both the wealthy and Big Corporations from 26%-35% to 9%! And the best part of it for his Wall Street masters: Eliminates Capital Gains Taxes!!! If Cain's plan went into effect, the multimillion dollar Hedge Fund Managers wouldn't pay ANY Taxes. Great for Wall Street! Not so Great for the Middle/Working Class and the Poor who would see their taxees double from 14 to 27%!!! Especially since middle class household incomes have flatlined or declined over the past decade while wealthy household incomes have skyrocketed:

Long before Cain was running for president and getting attention for his 999 plan, the residents of SimCity 4 -- which was released in 2003 -- were living under a system where the default tax rate was 9 percent for commercial taxes, 9 percent for industrial taxes and 9 percent for residential taxes.

...

When asked about similarities between Cain's plan and SimCity's default tax rates, Cain campaign spokesman JD Gordon replied, "Well, we all like 9-9-9."
