Farewell Citizen Cain

Posted on 05 December 2011

In the beginning, God created light to take us out of darkness.  Between the dawn of time and 2011 A.D., man has done a helluva great job of blotting out the light, particularly here in the alleged Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.  American citizens are besieged by economic blight, characterized by rampant unemployment, jobs outsourced overseas, and Social Security jeopardized.  Capping off these woes is a political system run by men paid off by Corporate America’s lobbyists, men far more concerned about lining their own pockets than providing concrete solutions to the constituents who voted them into office.

But yea, unto this darkness came a light at the end of the tunnel.  The name of this light was Herman Cain.

As a 2012 Presidential hopeful, Cain possessed more than a modicum of common sense.  A far cry from the wealthy braggadocios that America has elected for too many decades on the strength of their empty promises, Cain was a hard-working man who understood the plight of the average taxpayer.  As a Black American, he made no bones about his struggle to make it here.  His strong work ethic enabled him to attain the American dream, a dream he hoped to give American citizens via election to the highest office in the land.  A dream he hoped to implement through modification of tax codes, ensuring that taxes would then provide enough revenue to run the country efficiently.

But now, those dreams have been shattered.  Darkness once again engulfs us.  Cain has dropped out of the race on the heels of allegations of sexual misconduct with a consenting adult woman, misconduct that occurred and was settled legally years ago.   In his farewell speech, Cain declared that the negative press hurt his family, hurt him, and most of all, hurt the American people.

Cain had brains, balls, and a sound work ethic.  What he did not have was cutthroat political savvy born of covering one’s ass time and again with the American public.  Cain lacked the experience of his smarmy competitors: politicos who retain spin-doctors for hefty fees — fees, no doubt, footed unwittingly by taxpayers.  The spin-doctors lie between their teeth, bail the  politicians out of sticky situations, and allow them to emerge smelling like roses in the wake of allegations and scandals.

Any American-born citizen, such as Herman Cain, can run for the office of President of the United States … on paper, anyway.  The harsh reality is that anyone can run, but only the lying, wealthy bloodsuckers, a.k.a., the seasoned politicians, have a real shot in the race.

R.I.P., America’s dreams of transparency in government and economic recovery.
