With multiple candidates for President being of the same LDS faith, it would seem obvious, perhaps even predictable that I would support one of them in their candidacy. True, at one point I would have felt Mitt Romney would be good for the country, but frankly, I don't know how committed he is to doing what he says based on his pseudo-democratic governorship. Jon Huntsman was a decent governor. Not amazing, but not bad. However, it seems as if his run for president has exposed some issues that cause me to give pause on wether or not he is truly conservative as he claims. Or will Jon Huntsman be much like John McCain, a fat-free republican.
So, who then do I feel would work well for this country? Herman Cain. His positions are clear, though occasionally misinterpreted. He is not a politician which makes me feel better about his potential in what I consider to be a corrupted form of capitalism.
He does not support abortion which is nice to see. He wants to fix immigration, not just claim to want to stop it. His flat tax program is probably my favorite program and the main reason I would like to see him get into office. Because of his successes and his failures as a business man, I trust that he will be able to learn from any mistakes that he makes while in office, not continue to pursue failed ideas as has our current president.
In the end I of course would encourage others to at least view his campaign materials, watch some youtube material and understand that he is well spoken, well mannered, but not interested in filling crooked campaign promises to special interests. Our country is currently derailed and I believe Herman Cain can get us back on track.
