Helen Blocker-Adams’ column Oct. 16 regarding Herman Cain (“Herman Cain’s drive, energy inspired me to run for office”) not only was well-written but defined the man as one who should be taken seriously.
I have been an advocate for Mr. Cain for over two-and-a-half years. Not only is he a role model for personal responsibility, but his commonsense approach to personnel management and problem-solving would be a great asset to the office of president of the United States.
He is not one of the slick-faced, slick-talking politicians who have been on the scene too long. We need to remove all of the self-serving members of both the House and the Senate and replace them with patriots who will serve the will of the people.
I have repeatedly asked our representatives to abide by their oaths of office and to respect and uphold the Constitution of the United States. All I receive back, if anything at all, is some form letter that does not address the problems we are facing in the country today.
Mr. Cain’s 9-9-9 plan would benefit all income levels. Another article in the paper stated that the plan would hurt poor people. That is patently not true. Whoever wrote the article did not do the math or follow the logic to its conclusion. Besides, it is just a plan, and opens the door to other rational approaches to solving the fiscal crisis.
Mr. Cain also is an advocate of using our natural resources to recover from the economy, thus increasing manufacturing in the United States, which will increase the job market exponentially.
We as a nation cannot put up with the reckless spending and the failed policies of Barack Hussein Obama (whoever he is?) any longer.
