The Truth about Herman Cain

Please help spread the following expose of Herman Cain far and wide...

Source: http://www.humblelibertarian.com/2011/05/herman-cain-is-not-...

Make NO MISTAKE about Herman Cain. Herman Cain is NO conservative. He is NO Tea Party candidate. He is an establishment Republican In Name Only. His positions on past issues are all we need to know that a Herman Cain presidency would not shrink the size of government, increase your liberties, or return America to its Constitution.

The Truth About Herman Cain.


1. Herman Cain supported the TARP bailouts. He even wrote a column to vigorously argue in favor of the Wall Street bailout in 2008, writing: "Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem." Cain derided opponents of the bailouts as "free market purists." That sounds more like something Rachel Maddow would call Tea Partiers than something a true Tea Partier would use as an insult.

2. Herman Cain enthusiastically endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2008. Herman Cain called Mitt Romney his "No. 1 choice" for president. Remember that Mitt "RINO" brought socialized medicine to Massachusetts as governor, and his "RomneyCare" legislation would eventually form the blueprint for ObamaCare, which all true Tea Partiers strongly opposed! How can a "Tea Party candidate" like Herman Cain endorse someone like Mitt Romney for president?

3. Herman Cain opposes an audit of the Federal Reserve. Actually a former chairman of the Federal Reserve bank of Kansas City, Herman Cain opposes an audit of the Federal Reserve bank and supports its continued existence and manipulation of our dollar. This isn't even just a Tea Party issue. 80% of ALL AMERICANS want an audit of the Fed. Herman Cain doesn't.

You have a responsibility to your country not to let your fellow Americans be fooled by the false impression Herman Cain is working hard to cultivate about himself.

Please share this article with everyone you know-- especially people who have been fooled by Herman Cain's excellent speaking skills and carefully calculated lip service to the Tea Party's values. Herman Cain's record clearly shows that he supports bank bailouts, socialized medicine on a federal level, and the Fed's continued manipulation of the dollar to provide "stimulus" to the economy and enable Washington's runaway deficit spending. Herman Cain is NO TEA PARTY CANDIDATE.

At this time of crisis, America CANNOT afford to elect someone with such a spotty record of positions and endorsements. We absolutely must elect someone with a die-hard record of unyielding commitment to liberty, someone who we absolutely KNOW will shrink the size, role, and influence of the government in Washington. There are only two such candidates on the Republican field today: Rep. Ron Paul and Gov. Gary Johnson.

Thank you for reading.

More on Cain


What’s missing with Cain is the same as what’s really missing with Romney and Perry – substance on what really matters.

We do not have, in the federal government, a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. Like Romney and Perry, Cain has no answer to this most important question: What spending will you cut?


Cain started with big government, as a civilian employee of the Navy. Then he worked for mega-corporations Coca-Cola and Pillsbury. He worked his way up to become a vice-president at Pillsbury, then a VP at Burger King, and then CEO of Godfather’s Pizza


Nuff said.

And don't forget. Cain also wants a NATIONAL SALES TAX.

A never before tax on Americans.

PERFECT for an ex-central banker of the Federal Reserve.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

censorship at yahoo

i have been posting many comments on yahoo articles these days, exposing chairman cain and the federal reserve. apparently it has been noticed by the people at yahoo, because now NONE of my comments are being posted. not one of my comments was posted today, out of about a dozen attempts. has anyone else here experienced this kind of censorship ?? forget flipper romney and trick perry. it's chairman cain who is the chosen one who the establishment intends to be their next puppet. please do what you can to get out the word about chairman cain. he must be stopped.


That's way too much to share.

That's way too much to share. Keep the message simple...cain will raise your taxes. Then you can link examples of how cain's plan is to ENSLAVE the middle class so THEY pay for corporate America.

Ron Paul should really start to have a now or never moment and take voters away from both sides by going to Wallstreet and addressing that crowd. Sure it's organized and there are political axes to grind for sure but he needs to go there to put himself on the front page and not ask republicans to unite under him but rather all Americans and point out obama lied to America about ending the wars. Then show that crowd how adamant he is about bringing peace to America and ending corporate subsidies, bail outs for the rich and restoring free markets and re-establishing a sound dollar. (Roar of the crowd!!!!!).

Well said! Out of the mouths of two witnessess...

a second witness can be found at

TEA parties ought to think twice before even suggesting Cain. This should be spread far and wide.

Herman Cain would be the ultimate betrayal

We all know Perry and Romney are corporate sluts with rolodexes full of lobbyists.
Bachmann is done.
But Cain? The black rags to riches success story, folksy public speaker.

He would insure the future debt slavery of America.

All these jokers talk about Thomas Jefferson and then contradict the very central issue Jefferson would have with the America of today.

The Federal Reserve and it's collection arm the IRS are both coddled and cared for in Herman Cain's proposals.

Quoting Tomas Jefferson;
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Look and listen to the folks at Occupy Wall St.
Granted they are mostly mis-informed on the details but compare their sentiment to the sentiment expressed by Jefferson.

The future Jefferson warned against is here. And Herman Cain wants to finish the nightmare.

Unfortunately, that quote can NOT be attributed to TJ. :-(

Fortunately, ALL of these can be:

The toleration of banks of paper-discount costs the United States one half their war taxes; or, in other words, doubles the expense of every war.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

I am an enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but coin.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

From the establishment of the United States Bank to this day, I have preached against this system, and have been sensible no cure could be hoped, but in the catastrophe now happening.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Bank paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs. It is the only fund on which they can rely for loans ; it is the only resource which can never fail them, and it is an abundant one for every necessary purpose.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The mania [of banks] has seized, by its delusions and corruptions, all the members of our governments, general, special, and individual.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The system of banking we have both equally and ever reprobated. I contemplate it as a blot left in all our constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction, which is already hit by the gamblers in corruption, and is sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

This infatuation of banks is a torrent which it would be a folly for me to get in the way of. I see that it must take its course, until actual ruin shall awaken us from its delusions.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who in stead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The monopoly of a single bank is certainly an evil. The multiplication of them was intended to cure it; but it multiplied an influence of the same character with the first, and completed the supplanting of the precious metals by a paper circulation. Between such parties the less we meddle the better.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

I do not know whether you may recollect how loudly my voice was raised against the establishment of banks in the beginning; but like that of Cassandra it was not listened to. I was set down as a madman by those who have since been victims to them. I little thought then how much I was to suffer by them myself; for I, too, am taken in by endorsements for a friend to the amount of $20,000, for the payment of which I shall have to make sale of that much of my property. And yet the general revolution of fortunes, which these instruments have produced, seems not at all to have cured our country of this mania.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

What an obstruction could not this Bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in time of war? It might dictate to us the peace we should accept, or withdraw its aids. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile? That it is so hostile we know:

1, from a knowledge of the principles of the persons composing the body of directors in every bank, principal or branch : and those of most of the stockholders;

2, from their opposition to the measures and principles of the government, and to the election of those friendly to them; and

3, from the sentiments of the newspapers they support.

Now, while we are strong, it is the greatest debt we owe to the safety of our Constitution, to bring its powerful enemy to a perfect subordination under its authorities. The first measure would be to reduce them to an equal footing only with other banks, as to the favors of the government. But, in order to be able to meet a general combination of the banks against us, in a critical emergency, could we not make a beginning towards an independent use of our own money, towards holding our own bank in all the deposits where it is received, and letting the treasurer give his draft or note, for payment at any particular place, which, in a well-conducted government, ought to have as much credit as any private draft, or bank note, or bill, and would give us the same facilities which we derive from the banks?

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

My original disapprobation of banks circulating paper is not unknown, nor have I since observed any effects either on the morals or fortunes of our citizens, which are any counter balance for the public evils produced.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

I have ever been the enemy of banks, not of those discounting for cash, but of those foisting their own paper into circulation, and thus banishing our cash. My zeal against those institutions was so warm and open at the establishment of the Bank of the United States, that I was derided as a maniac by the tribe of bank-mongers, who were seeking to filch from the public their swindling and barren gains.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Private fortunes, in the present state of our circulation, are at the mercy of those self created money-lenders, and are prostrated by the floods of nominal money with which their avarice deluges us. He who lent his money to the public or to an individual, before the institution of the United States Bank, twenty years ago, when wheat was well sold at a dollar the bushel, and receives now his nominal sum when it sells at two dollars, is cheated of half his fortune; and by whom? By the banks, which, since that, have thrown into circulation ten dollars of their nominal money where there was one at that time.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The evils of this deluge of paper money are not to be removed, until our citizens are generally and radically instructed in their course and consequences, and silence by their authority the interested clamors and sophistry of speculating, shaving, and banking institutions. Till then we must be content to return, quoad hoc, to the savage state, to recur to barter in the exchange of our property, for the want of a stable, common measure of value, that now in use being less fixed than the beads and wampum of the Indian, and to deliver up our citizens, their property and their labor, passive victims to the swindling tricks of bankers and mountebankers.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The paper bubble is burst. This is what you and I, and every reasoning man, seduced by no obliquity of mind or interest, have long foreseen. We were laboring under a dropsical fullness of circulating medium. Nearly all of it is now called in by the banks, who have the regulation of the safety-valves of our fortunes, and who condense and explode them at their will. Lands in this State [Virginia] cannot now be sold for a year s rent; and unless our Legislature have wisdom enough to effect a remedy by a gradual diminution only of the medium, there will be a general revolution of property in this State. Over our own paper and that of other States coming among us, they have competent powers; over that of the Bank of the United States there is doubt, not here, but elsewhere. That bank will probably conform voluntarily to such regulations as the Legislature may prescribe for the others. If they do not, we must shut their doors, and join the other States which deny the right of Congress to establish banks, and solicit them to agree to some mode of settling this constitutional question. They have themselves twice decided against their right, and twice for it. Many of the States have been uniform in denying it, and between such parties the Constitution has provided no umpire.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The idea of creating a national bank, I do not concur in, because it seems now decided that Congress has not that power... The rapid rise in the nominal price of land and labor (while war and blockade should produce a fall) proves the progressive state of the depreciation of our medium.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The bill for establishing a National Bank undertakes to form the subscribers into a corporation [and] to give them the sole and exclusive right of banking under the national authority; and so far is against the laws of Monopoly.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

To take a single step beyond the boundaries specifically drawn around the powers of Congress [in the enumerated powers] is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Can it be thought that the Constitution in tended that for a shade or two of convenience, more or less, Congress should be authorized to break down the most ancient and fundamental laws of the several States; such as those against Mortmain, the laws of Alienage, the rules of Descent, the acts of Distribution, the laws of Escheat and Forfeiture, the laws of Monopoly? Nothing but a necessity invincible by any other means, can justify such a prostitution of laws, which constitute the pillars of our whole system of jurisprudence. Will Congress be too straight-laced to carry the Constitution into honest effect, unless they may pass over the foundation-laws of the State government for the slightest convenience of theirs?

Thanks for the alternatives. In the meantime

you can attribute the quote I put up there to me.
It's more true now than ever.

It would be awesome to get

It would be awesome to get Cain's opinion on the Fed's destruction of the source transcripts regarding Iraqgate, and then ask him why an audit is unnecessary. I don't have much time to devote to research, this is the only article I can quickly find where it is discussed:

Tom Woods too,

Tom Woods too,


i can't find the video where herman cain says he wants to fix government programs not end them. i know it's somewhere, but i can't find it on youtube. can anybody help me?

I think it was during one of the debates.



i'm surprise you didn't even mention that chairman cain wants to impose new taxes on us. how is it that "conservative republicans" are OK with that ??


Should also point out that he

Should also point out that he was oblivious to the economic crash just a week or two before it happened

The Truth about Herman Cain

Lots of people have been fooled by his smooth talk... everyone needs to be exposed to the truth about this font man for the banking elite.

smooth talk apparently wins elections

We keep seeing it happen these days. I am waiting until idiocracy happens (pretty much there) and all we have are paris hiltons and jersey shore cast members as our politicians.
