Nine Reasons Why Herman Cain’s Supporters Should Join The Ron Paul Camp

By: Wes Messamore

With Herman Cain out of the race, his supporters are looking for a new home. Which of the remaining GOP candidates should they now support? Who would best exemplify their values, address their concerns, and forge the kind of future they envision for America? Could the answer be any more clear? Ron Paul would make the best choice for them out of the remaining presidential hopefuls.

Here are nine reasons why (see what I did there?):

1. Anti-Establishment – Cain’s supporters liked that he was anti-establishment. Out of the remaining candidates, which one would you describe as the most anti-establishment? Certainly not Newt Gingrich, the very definition of a Washington-insider, who’s made millions in lobbying fees working for the U.S. government. Neither Mitt Romney, whose campaign coffers are thick with funds from wealthy Wall Street friends. Only Ron Paul, who has always stood against the establishment, even when it was unpopular, could fairly be described as anti-establishment. Ending up on the losing side of enough 434-1 votes earns you the right to claim that title. Tired of Congress? Pick the candidate who has gone against Congress the most.

2. Limited-Government – Cain’s supporters tend to support limited government. Which remaining candidate would best carry out their wishes as president? Not Newt Gingrich. He had his chance at the helm of this republic’s federal policies and what did we get? As Cato Institute president Ed Crane noted in 2000: “the combined budgets of the 95 major programs that [Gingrich's] Contract with America promised to eliminate have increased by 13%.” We certainly can’t trust Mitt Romney either, who introduced socialized medicine to Massachusetts as governor and whose health care model formed the basis for ObamaCare. There’s only Ron Paul, who has never voted to raise taxes, never voted for an unbalanced budget, never voted to raise congressional pay, and has been repeatedly named the “Taxpayers’ Best Friend” in Congress.

3. Problem-Solving – Herman Cain’s supporters loved his emphasis on practical, common-sense problem solving. They should look no further than Ron Paul. Mitt Romney’s socialist-style, 59-point economic plan isn’t problem solving. It’s problem creating. Government doesn’t need to be made more complicated, it needs to be streamlined and made more efficient. Newt Gingrich has never solved a problem in his life. Like Obama, he’s a bloviating intellectual who will talk about his grand theories and ideas ’til the cows come home, but when given a chance to solve America’s problems in 1994, he only let the problems in government get bigger and more numerous. Ron Paul has advanced a DETAILED plan (not just a promise) to cut $1 trillion from the federal budget in his FIRST YEAR as president and balance the budget by Year 3 of a Paul Administration.

  1. Exactly.

    Spot-on, Wes.

    I'd say more, but your post speaks volumes on its own merit.

  2. Well stated Wes, and factual.

    We can hope that the lion's share of Cain supporters ride the Paul wagon to the nominating convention.

    I fear however McNewtie may be the greatest beneficiary of ex Cain supporters.

  3. Les,

    I see you linked this post to RNUSA, and I linked it to TCG, as well. Apparently great minds DO think alike! :)

    Ron Paul 2012!
