The Era of Cain

One of my biggest reasons for supporting the long shot GOP nomination drive of Herman Cain is that it puts the Democrats on the race defensive, which is where they belong. It is a well known and often stated fact within the conservative political community that the Democrat Party is the party of hate, racial division and racial prejudice.

It is the entrenched operational doctrine of the Democrat Party to label, separate and segregate Americans based solely upon their race, religion, and sexual orientation. The party of Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, Lester Maddox, Albert Gore, Sr. and Al Sharpton, to name just a few, has streamlined the principle of divide and conquer into a monolith of racial oppression and political suppression. The more Democrats, with the gleefully willing help of the progressive national media, can create false coalitions of pseudo oppressed victims, the longer they can maintain their grip on the voting booth and their death grip on the American dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The increasingly high profile of Mr. Cain, as well as the explosion of fellow Republican Allen West onto the national political scene, is proving that the real vision for the future of the American black community is being revealed on the right. The true voice of black political and economic empowerment is growing too strong to be ignored. The only political party in the United States that offers the African-American culture any chance for survival is the party of Lincoln, the Republican Party.

A recent Gallup poll showed Cain with the highest voter intensity score of any Republican presidential contender. Looking at the numbers, Cain is beating out the top tier of presumed GOP front runners from Palin to Romney. Cain’s name recognition has risen 16 points since March and with each passing day and each thundering sound bite the Cain star is on the ascendant.

After being declared the winner in the first GOP debate in South Carolina last month and then winning the straw polls at the Tea Party Patriots convention in February and the Conservative Values Conference in Iowa in March, a noticeable change of momentum has begun to shape the perception of the political novice from outside the D.C. establishment.

While many of the so-called professional political talking heads dismiss any real chance of Mr. Cain getting the GOP nomination he is pushing all the right buttons for an electorate that is weary of the barely concealed yellow, liberal streak that has permeated the Grand Old Party. The level of excitement for Herman Cain’s out spoken conservatism has highlighted what has been missing in the Republican Party since John McCain drove us off the cliff in 2008.

But I digress.

Herman Cain’s strong conservative stances has stood him well within the ranks of Tea Party activists nationwide, who have grown frustrated and angry at being labeled racists by a progressive national media dedicated to reelecting Barack Obama. The Tea Party, far from being the racist reactionaries that the east coast liberal media elites wish they were, recognize the promise and the real hope for an America based on values and individual liberty that a Cain presidency would represent.

“Tea party people love him,” said Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of Tea Party Patriots. “He’s not a senator or a governor. He’s just a mister.”

After witnessing the soul killing, cultural destruction sown upon countless generations of African-American families by a Democrat political agenda, whose sole purpose was the generational enslavement of a permanent voting bloc, a growing number of leaders within the black community are standing up, speaking out and fighting to take back the political future of their people.

In a history fraught with enslavement, persecution, prejudice and injustice, the hope for the future lies not with more entitlements and more false promises, but with the realization of true political freedom. The only path to true political freedom is through the removal of the yoke of political enslavement placed upon the black culture by the Democrat Party.

Political enslavement, indeed.

In the years to come people will look upon this time in our history, not as the age of Obama and the hypocrisy of his campaign promises, but the rising up of black conservatives, the rebirth of a proud people who have been oppressed by the party claiming to speak for them and the beginning of the era of Cain.
