I'm sorry someone must have made this up it should be disregarded. Herman Cain has no support what so ever. Come on ppl no one gets 77% it's like the fake FOX poll. At this point if you want a real poll stand outside of your local supermarkets for a week, ask ppl if they will be voting in the primaries and if they say yes ask them who they will be voting for. It would give a few people a chance to get pre-educated and a real poll that could be summed back to give a result close to what the primaries will be.

When did Republicans stop

When did Republicans stop giving a d*mn about the Constitution, small government, and personal liberties?

Oh, I know... when they fell in love with war and oil and corporatism.

When Reagan became a turncoat...

..and made a deal with the Irving Kristol Gang of neocons to get elected in 1980. The seed was planted though, when William F. Buckley turned on Goldwater.

I don't know this

I don't know this information. Sounds like I should. Cliffs notes please??

Reagan made a deal with the neocons to win office

He sold out his principles to be president. There are many essays written on this subject, and the MSM avoids the connection, but with a little Googling you will find the facts.

Irving Kristol: The Unlikely Neocon:

“With the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 Kristol tasted genuine political power for the first time-“


Neoconservative Pioneer Paved Way for Reagan:

“In a six-decade career, Mr. Kristol's politics evolved ever-rightward, most markedly in reaction to the Great Society programs of the 1960s. As his opposition to what he saw as excesses of the welfare state crystallized, he helped provide the intellectual underpinnings of the Republican resurgence that began with the 1980 election of President Ronald Reagan.”


Neoconservatism – wiki:

“In the late 1970s neoconservative support moved to Ronald Reagan the Republican hawk who promised to confront Soviet expansionism.”


Neoconservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea – book review:

“Irving Kristol has long been considered the godfather of neoconservatism, a political persuasion that breathed intellectual life into the moribund Republican Party during the 1970s and helped make Ronald Reagan's ascendancy possible.”
