    I would NOT be surprised to see the gas prices start to drop the week of October 22nd and will level off to a five year low by November 15th...

    Herman Cain just seems to be such an idiot.

    Anyone wishing the country does poorly so that a certain President will not be re-elected is a fucking moron.

    You might want to take that up with most of the Republicans up on Capitol Hill. They've been rooting against the best interests of this country since January 20, 2009. Mitch McConnell, the GOP's leader in the Senate, admitted that when he said this last year:

    The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

    More important than jobs, immigration, national security, etc. Great leader...

    Somehow, I don't think they will listen to me. Heard Rush Limbaugh say something similar a few days ago.

    Hoping someone fails so their policies can't be instituted I can understand, but actually wishing for things to get worse for the American people for political gain I absolutely cannot get behind.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    MARK: Is it wrong that since gas prices have been going up like 30 cents in the last month, month and a half. That for a while Iíve been hoping that gas would hit $4 so people would realize that we need a Republican in the presidency so that on November 7th, gas will be slashed to like $2 a gallon?

    CAIN: Thatís not wrong at all. If it hits $4 a gallon nationally, that would be a huge wakeup call for a lot of people who, quite frankly Mark, arenít paying attention. And the other reason that I would agree with you that it was not wrong in order to wake people up in that manner because sometimes you donít wake them up until it hits their checkbook or their pocketbook is the fact that some of the times when gas prices go down itís manipulated. Itís manipulated by the oil-producing countries. There are some countries that are really really big as far as oil production that want Barack Obama to win.

    First of all the caller is an idiot if he thinks that gas will be $2.00 a gallon on November 7th. Other than that I get where Cain is coming from, and aside from the headline nowhere did he say "I wish gas prices would hit $4". The caller did and that is just up to par with the mentality of people that call radio talk shows.

    He is right, Americans in general think everything is hunky dory until it impacts their wallets. Unfortunately I don't think even $4 a gallon would wake anyone up. We're pretty used to anywhere between $3 and $4 now. Make it $5-$6 and that will get people's panties in a bunch.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    Only people don't think everything is great right now. Many of them are stuck with the option of voting for 2 guys they want no part of. Republicans aren't in love with Romney by any stretch... And I guess Cain doesn't understand that.

    Sigh. I don't know why anyone ever entertained the idea he'd be a good president; even Domino's pizza's sucked...how can he run a country w/ a creed of not even making a good pizza!?!

    That said - I think it'd be interesting to:
    - Tax everyone equally (flat rate income tax)
    - Tax everyone equally (flat federal / corporate tax)
    - If folks want a deduction - they contribute to a certified charity / etc - this idea is neat (at least to me)...it allows for people to still get deductions, however they must help society out some how.
    - If folks serve the country somehow, they get a different taxation (lower) level.

    In some weird way - that's similar to what the 9-9-9 is.
