First, this isn’t just about Herman Cain. He is definitely being treated unjustly, with all the tabloid politics and lies and totally unsubstantiated allegations. In America a person is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Not so with Mr. Herman Cain. Evil forces fear Mr. Cain because he is a problem solver and has answers that can HEAL AMERICA. The evil naysayers profit on pain, suffering and problems, promising to solve all our ills, and never doing so. Think about how abortion promises to solve a woman’s problems but really givers her more problems at her expense!
Now, back to the purpose of this blog. What I’m really saying is that if we allow Mr. Cain to be thrown under the bus, or the train in his case, who is going to be next?
Let me digress for just a moment… I have been asked many times in the past, and in the not too distant past, “why don’t you run for president?”
I’m a human being with brown skin, which is generally considered to be Black. I’m a female, a mother and grandmother. As far as political positioning in America goes, I fall in what some call the conservative category. To sum all of this up, I try to be an honest and good person, and I love and follow Jesus. Tragically, being a good person with good moral values is not enough get someone elected to the highest office in this country and perhaps around the world.
You see, like everyone else on the planet, I’m only human with human failings, born into a world of sin, and as such, I’ve made mistakes in the past. I’ve done some things I’m not proud of and I even talk about them in public in hopes that they might help someone not make the same mistakes I’ve made. However, if people speak falsehoods about/against me, it would take a lifetime to disprove their allegations. So, other than by denying the attacks, I keep moving forward in most cases without even trying to defend myself. I generally try to let the Lord fight my battles.
As Matthew 5:10-12 says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Again, people have asked me why I don’t run for President of the United States. Besides that fact that I don’t consider myself qualified to be President of the United States there are many other reasons why I wouldn’t want to run. Today’s politics are such that those who follow the Father of Lies will use any tactics to bring down those that would do good for our country. The good and righteous person lives by certain standards and lines he/she will not cross. Evil, however, has no boundaries, no standards, no lines they won’t cross.
Not all of the current candidates seeking office are doing it for power, prestige, or fame; but rather because they love America and have a desire to make this country the best it can be. The media should focus on the issues and not on tabloid politics and unsubstantiated allegations made by those that want to bring good men down.
Mr. Herman Cain is at the top of the tabloid politics hit list. Why does the opposition fear Mr. Herman Cain so much? Think about it. Herman Cain offers solutions to President Obama’s failed stimulus plan, and to the failed liberal platform that supports entitlements and handouts as a way of life. Herman Cain represents an empowerment/opportunity quality of life. Think again… If the general election features two Black men of opposing political views, and Black America hears an honest political debate, the establishment will lose a portion of their 90 percent stranglehold on the Black vote.
Slurs to a lesser degree have also been aimed at Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry. Again, tabloid style politics of any type are unacceptable and should not be tolerated by the people of this country. We the people must demand a more just political process. If someone is going to talk about another person’s character they must have irrefutable proof and not just their word. The people should demand this and so should the media.
We must demand that the media reports on the issues, and let us see the platforms of the candidates!
