Sorry for the prolonged absence, I haven’t posted in a few weeks and that’s simply because I didn’t there was much to blog about. I know Rick Perry jumped in the race and the Ames Straw Poll took place, but since then nothing significant has happened in my opinion, and I am not a proponent of talking about small snippets of baseless back and forth nonsense.
With that being said, this week, the candidate I’m supporting (Herman Cain, see my previous post on why this man is the candidate I am supporting) came out with his innovative 9-9-9 economic plan. Some highlights of Mr. Cain’s plan for 9-9-9 economic recovery plan include a reduced personal income tax of 9% on all americans and corporations (a flat tax) and a national sales tax of 9% (this is the introduction of the FairTax). This would also eliminate the payroll tax, the capital gains tax and end taxes on repatriated profits (those are profits of corporations that are currently headquartered overseas to avoid paying ridiculous American corporate tax rates, taking American jobs with them). This plan is a great way to spurn investment in new business ventures, bring back trillions of dollars sitting overseas, returning thousands of jobs to the USA and relieve the tax burden on the average citizen and reduce the tax burden of every American citizen. It also has the added effect of simplifying the tax code, saving American taxpayers millions every year in IRS waste. Another important aspect of this plan, is that it would unite the flat tax advocates and the fair tax advocates within the conservative republican base. Phase 2 of Mr. Cain’s economic plan would be to implement the FairTax, which is a national sales tax, you can read more about by clicking the link.
In such a serious time for the everyday American, people aren’t looking for campaigns running on one-liners (hint: Michele Bachmann), or candidates who are willing to let illegals cost the taxpayers billions and who believe in making energy more unaffordable than ever for Americans (hint: Newt Gingrich). Americans aren’t looking for undecisive flip-flop artists (hint: Mitt Romney) or RINOs who have worked for and praised President Obama (hint: Jon Huntsman). They also don’t need an old man wearing a tin foil hat who believes gullible is spray painted on the White House (hint: Ron Paul). They also don’t want people who claim to be TEA Party, social conservatives whosellout conservative values in order to help his own re-election cause (hint: Rick Perry). In short, Americans are tired of career politicians. They want someone who has created jobs. Someone who knows the private sector. Someone who has business turning businesses around. Someone who hasn’t been corrupted by the beltway style politics. That man, folks, is named Herman Cain.
