In a article written in 2008, Herman Cain wrote the following: North Star Writers Group - Syndicated Commentary: Opinion, Humor and Features In May 2011, Cain had this to say: Introducing Herman Cain - Robert Costa - National Review Online In December of 2010, Cain put forth his belief that the U.S should return to the Gold Standard: RealClearPolitics - Video - Herman Cain: Return To The Gold Standard He also has put forth his belief that an audit of the Federal Reserve is unnecessary and that there is no need for it: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhen9QiYai8]YouTube - ‪Herman Cain says: "No Need To Audit the Federal Reserve" WTF!‬‏[/ame] Cain also has gone on the record in saying he would not appoint a Muslim in his Administration because they may support Sharia Law: Herman Cain: 'I Would Not' Appoint a Muslim in My Administration - Muslims - Fox Nation Ironic, considering he also opposes Abortion and wishes to see Gay Marriage banned at a Federal level while trying to espouse state rights on the issue of gun permits. Now you may ask yourself: Why did I create this thread? The answer is simple, everytime I see a Cain thread on this board the same two things occur: 1.) His business experience is brought up. 2.) He is used as a weapon to beat Liberals over the head with what amounts to accusations of future racism. However, whenever I bring up his positions like so, my posts routinely get ignored because that might actually require a thoughtful discussion. So, now that question is answered, what do you think USMB of Cain's positions? Personally, I think that he will not win the GOP nomination because the people who would vote for him are more likely to vote for either Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, or one of the Social Conservative candidates with more star power.
