Herman Cain delivered another bad speech at the Values Voter Summit today, October 8, 2011. He appeals to the right wing without any doubt, but his bigotry is apparent. We need leaders who have one mouth that communicates and not the one that contradicts.
In the following video http://www.therightscoop.com/herman-cain-brings-the-house-down-at-values-voter-summit/near the 7th minute, Herman Cain releases foul air from this mouth.
He says not to tread on someone’s liberty – yet he has the balls to tread on the liberties of Gays and Lesbians… He said he will ask the department of justice to enforce the defense of marriage act and yet his foul mouth delivers this. “You can pursue happiness all you want, as long as you don’t tread on someone’s liberty.” Why doesn’t he mind his own business?Although a pro-lifer myself, I firmly believe a woman has the choice to make that call about her body. He believes that life begins at conception and that is fine, but that does not give him the right to become authoritarian and tread on women’s right.
Herman Cain does not have any qualms on treading the liberties of Muslims to build mosques or live their life as they wish to.
I urge Herman Cain to quit pandering to the few who applaud him. A few right wingers among Republican leadership don’t get it. America is not as bigoted they are. Americans believe in life liberty and pursuit of happiness; Herman Cain does not. America is not made of right wingers, America is made of good decent, moderate, get-along with all human beings kind of people along with the right and left, we all need to respect each other’s liberties.
If we can learn to respect the otherness of other and accept the uniqueness of each one of the 312 Million of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.
