Herman Cain surprised everyone this past weekend by coming out on top of the Florida Straw Poll. He garnered over 37% of the votes – beating out the two media declared front runners Romney (14%) and Perry(15.43%) combined.
Now, yes things are volatile and the front runners can change almost daily. It wasn’t long ago that Michelle Bachmann was the front runner in the straw polls but only received a little over 1% of the votes in Florida.
Are the tides turning? Can one man really bring hope and change and not fluff and stuff?
I think Herman Cain has some great ideas. His 9-9-9 plan is very intriguing and should be seriously considered. However, one thing that has not been mentioned or even asked of Cain is this: Will the national sales tax, personal tax and corporate tax rates be set in stone – unchangeable by politicians in the future and how will he insure that it can never be changed? And shouldn’t food and clothing – the necessities of living be exempted from the 9% national sales tax?
