I'm a racist for disagreeing with Obama? ~ By Herman Cain

If there is anyone that can explain why being a tea partier is not a racist, Herman Cain does it best. No, not just because he's black. It's because he understands what the meaning of the Tea Party Movement is, as do several of the other Conservative commentators that I've posted to this blog recently. I hope people are listening!
Tyranny is the suppression of disagreement and the control of people's lives through legislative and regulatory abuse of power. That's what the "tea-party people" are passionately against, and I will continue to echo those views as loudly and often as I can.

Rational American Citizens Interested in Saving This country are not the racists. We are the patriots.

When someone calls me a derogatory name such as "Uncle Tom" or "sellout," I don't even flinch because it puts their ignorance and lack of intelligence on display. But when someone accuses me or others of being a racist because we disagree with President Obama, I get really, really, really angry.

I couldn't care less that they call me a racist. But I care a whole lot that they try to intimidate me into not disagreeing with Obama because he is African-American. To suggest we cannot disagree with our elected leaders for whatever reason is to suggest that we are a nation to be governed by tyranny.

My fuse was lit on this subject by a caller to my radio show last week. It was near the end of the show, and I almost made it without having to provide some gift-wrapped explanation to a liberal about her illogical and ridiculous accusation. My radio show producer describes this gift-wrapping technique as delivering a part of one's anatomy to them on a platter.

Her first question was why am I against health care? I am a survivor of stage IV cancer because God said "not yet," and because America has the best health care in the world. I pointed out to her that we do not have a health-care crisis in America. We have a health-care cost crisis. Obamacare makes the real crisis worse.

Her second intellectually challenged question was why do I associate with those tea-party people, who are the same ones that used to hang black people 100 years ago? I resisted the urge to point out that tea-party attendees were not alive 100 years ago and that most of the centenarians were probably at home watching the tea parties on TV.

Here's what I did say: I associate with tea-party people because I share their passionate disagreement with the escalation of big government, legislation and taxation without members of Congress reading the bills, and an arrogant disregard for the voice of the majority of Americans by President Obama
and the Democrats. The caller interpreted those disagreements as Obama bashing.

At that point I knew this was not going to be a logical exchange of perspectives.

This was a typical liberal who wanted to use race to defend Obama's unworkable health-care legislation and his other failed ideas. Liberals can't use facts and logic because the facts do not support the passage of Obamacare, or other failed ideas such as Cash for Clunkers or the manufactured concept of counting "saved jobs."

People who use race and illogical comparisons to segregation and slavery to defend Obama are the real racists. They resort to this empty logic when they are desperate to say something to refute the facts even if it does not make sense. It is also an attempt to silence and intimidate people, especially white people. According to their empty logic, that makes me a black racist against black people, in addition to an "Uncle Tom" and a "sellout."
