I'm running for president ~ By Herman Cain

Just as money cannot buy happiness, money alone cannot buy the Republican nomination, or even a second term as President Obama hopes to do by raising $1 billion in campaign cash. Although we need enough money to be competitive, money alone will not supersede the voices of an energized and informed electorate. That's what is propelling my campaign into the limelight.

No, I have never held public office before, and I may not know how Washington works, as some have pointed out. But I do not want to learn how to create a $14 trillion national debt, or waste $1 trillion to create a stalled economy and a nine percent unemployment rate or continue to push problems off on future generations.

Our collective vision for America is to change those results for the better with a direct boost to the economy using bold tax reductions, responsible regulatory reductions, a restructuring of social programs and common-sense solutions to our national problems.

As president, my job will be to change Washington, not learn Washington.

Just a little while ago, I wrote a tweet to my friend, @THEHermanCain. I mentioned this:
"With great power comes great responsibility."
Can you even imagine all of the things that our next President, maybe Herman Cain, could face? Would you want that job?

Well, if there was anyone that could, I can assure you that Herman had to keep that in mind in his prayers before he made his decision and announced it last Saturday (May 21, the day the world was supposed to end if you believed Harold Campy).

And speaking of the infamous Harold Campy, I got a call this last weekend from my wonderful brother of my late wife, and a brother in Christ. The Campy prediction of the May 21st Rapture and subsequent end of the world was one of the major topics that we discussed. And so was this topic, the fact that Herman Cain is running for President. The two topics are related. And now, you're saying, "Really?" (I'm psychic.) Yes, really. He reminded me of this:

8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in humans.
9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.
  ~ Psalm 118
And I said in reply, "Exactly!"

I was reminded that there has been but one Savior. Oh, which reminds me... There are people on the other side of the political spectrum that believe(d) that our current President is "The One" that could turn everything around, Back in '08, it was all about Obama saving us all! And the key to accomplishing that desire was supposedly going to be because of a MAN! It just doesn't work that way.

The truth is, it will take a leader that has the right Godly desire in his heart to turn this country around. It will take a great LEADER that can instill the inspiration in us to take part in turning this country around.

Did you get that? The man that will lead this country after this presidential term is over will not be the one that wants the credit for turning things around. I'm sure that Herman Cain is one of the few GOP candidates that understands that truth. Herman seems to understand that it is going to take you and I to actually make the difference in how things are going. It won't hurt for us to have somebody in charge that knows that it isn't up to the government to do it all. It is time for We the People to take charge of the local, state, and federal government bodies. It is what the Founding Fathers were wanting US to do.

Does Herman Cain get it? I am sure he does. He would not have gone to all this trouble if he didn't care about what kind of country this would be for our grandchildren, just like what you and I are concerned about. I'm just sayin'....

I'm running for president

"Just to be clear, I'm running for president of the United States of America, and I'm not running for second place."

That was my announcement on May 21 in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. It was a high-noon event with more than 15,000 of my closest friends in attendance!

I wanted to be very clear of my intentions because of the usual three reservations expressed by skeptics about a "dark horse" candidate winning the Republican nomination for the presidency. Lack of name recognition, money and experience as a previous office holder are the usual negatives political pundits reference in their skepticism.

My name may not be a household name, but it is a grass-roots recognized name. Just consider the number of straw polls in which I have placed first in the last few months. The Tea Party Patriots summit in Phoenix, the Conservatives Values Conference hosted by Rep. Steve King in Des Moines, Iowa, multiple state Republican Party conventions and, most recently, an online Fox News survey following my official announcement of candidacy on Saturday.

Now my performance in the recent South Carolina presidential debate was not a straw poll, but by most accounts I was viewed the most favorable by a majority of those who saw that exchange among potential candidates, as well as the immediate reaction of a Frank Luntz on-air focus group.
