I believe the ONLY way to solve the illegal immigration problem is to take away the incentive as the good doctor has suggested.
I am currently writing a lengthy hit piece on herman cain and could use some imaginative input.
Playing devils advocate. Lets imagine that we built a huge wall on the Mexican border.
1. How would it affect our relations, trade and travel
2. Would it effectively stop illegal immigrants?
3. Do you think we'd see "terrorist" efforts from mexico; war?
Say your salary is $45,000
A 9% corporate tax rate only permits the corporation to pay you:
A 9% personal income tax only lets you take home:
A 9% national sales tax only gives you the purchasing power of:
$11,089 or 1/4 of your income to Uncle Sam
Herman Cain has no understanding of economics whatsoever. He said on September 1st in his news letter that we were in an "imaginary recession" and that the economy was great after the housing bubble had already began to burst and we had been in a recession for nine months. After publishing his newsletter with this arrogant nonsense and dogging the Democrats and media for reporting the facts about the recession and housing collapse here's what took place over the following two weeks:
– Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taken over by the U.S. government (Sept. 7);
I've noticed a recent swell of support to bring Cain's numbers down. This is an excellent idea. Keep the questionable floating voters swaying around picking candidate after candidate. Ron Paul is not everyone's first pick for the GOP, but he is on the list. Once Ron gets their support, they stay. Voters know what to expect with Ron Paul. Even if they disagree with some of the issues, he will not sway the supporters to another candidate.
Video I created to show the American People, that Herman Cain is part of the problem.
I have seen many people at the Occupy Boston protest that are hardcore Ron Paul supporters.
For Herman Cain to say that if you don't have a job, you should blame yourself, is in the realm of fantasy.
Many good friends of mine have lost their jobs, due to factories closing, and jobs being outsourced to China.
I guess we got blame ourselves, because the CEO's deserve the 50 million dollar bonus, that could of saved 500 jobs.
If you're dissatisfied with the economy, or unemployed, Herman Cain thinks you should take a long, hard look in the mirror.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal posted Wednesday, the up-and-coming GOP 2012 contender and former CEO of Godfather's Pizza summed up his bewilderment about recent demonstrations on Wall Street.
"Don't blame Wall Street," Cain said. "Don't blame the big banks. If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself."

"Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks," he continued. "If you don't have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself!"
Cain said the banks were in part to blame with the 2008 financial crisis, but he said, "We're not in 2008 -- we're in 2011!"
THIS is Herman Cain:
- flip-flops like Romney
- gaffs like Bachmann
- shoots self in foot like Perry
- has no record like OBAMA
I cannot wait for this scumbag to get Perry'd.
"As chair of the compensation committee, Cain also saw fit to dole out $30 million in bonuses, not including stock options, to the top five execs at Aquila in 2002, with the company's stock plummeting. A month after the Kansas City Star reported on the hefty bonuses in July 2002, the company laid off 500 employees, and the losses to employees holding company stock had reached hundreds of millions of dollars."
Herman Cain seems to present himself as a straight shooter. He says he's not a politician and just says what he means. I think he gets a lot of support because of that.
We don't have much to go on as far as history of where he stands on issues but I found three instances of where he seems to have flip flopped in a short period of time.
The latest is his flip on the drone assasination on Anwar al-Awlaki. Here is a link the story in The Atlantic.
This is why Herman Cain is really running...
The GOP presidential hopeful's campaign is spending more than it's raising—and a lot of that money is being spent on planes, chauffeurs, and five-star hotels.

While most are fawning over the latest manufactured candidate, Mother Jones has done some digging and found that Cain wasn't "Mr. Nice Guy" to his former employees at energy company Aquila (which is why they class action sued him).

I apologize for the poor quality, I recorded this on my phone. Bill O'Rielly dismisses Ron Paul winning a presidential poll he hosted on his site due to "flooding" by Ron Paul (and Herman Cain) supporters.
EDIT: Attempted to embed video
I mean seriously?
Ron Paul drops in one poll and now Schiff is infatuated by Herman Cain! Just listened to his show and the first 10 minutes are like listening to some alien that has taken over Schiff's body.
When you support a candidate you don't advocate another candidate or imply that your candidate is less electable than another.
I was talking to my dad earlier about politics of the day and what Cain's "9-9-9" plan was actually all about. My dad came to the conclusion earlier today that a 9% national sales tax would have to include the good sold on the internet. I know that states can charge sales tax if the buyer and seller is in that state and some are trying to tax if there is just one end.
Has there been any discussion about this yet? This plan sounds like it has a lot of undesirables in it to me.
