Many of my more faithful readers will know that there has not been much activity on Head Muscle the past several months. The reason for this simple…I lost my energy. Political blogs are a great thing, but sometimes it seems that one gets in a rut of just regurgitating the same old objections and hearing the same tired arguments. The plain truth is, I got to a point where I felt as if I was putting more into it than I was getting out of it.
Now don’t get me wrong….this has absolutely nothing to do with my fine and able companions out there in the blogosphere. My fellow bloggers have towed the line nobly and continue to do so with exacting precision and insight. All that said however, watching our great nation literally collapse under the misguided vision of our current administration was so emotionally draining, I just lost my steam. The furnace went cold.
When the debates started a few months ago I watched ambivalently as the usual suspects Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Ron (the kook) Paul, took the stage. “Wasn’t this the group of folks that lost to Obama the first time?” I could not help but think. Then this fellow named Herman Cain started talking, and he really got my attention. Here was a business man with no real political experience making everyone else on stage sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher…wah wah wah wah…you know what I mean. When I finished watching the first debate I visited his website at Herman Cain for President and really started to dig into who this guy was. Needless to say I liked what I read, and have since become an ardent Herman Cain supporter.
Over the last several months I have been trying to figure out what to do with Head Muscle. I still did not have the zeal to jump back into the political issue du jour, but felt that there was still something productive I could do with it. When Mr. Cain won the Florida straw poll this past week, I knew without a doubt that Head Muscle had a new calling.
Ladies and gentlemen make no mistake about it; our nation is in the middle of a revolution. It is not violent one, but it is a revolution nonetheless. Our current administration is presiding over the worst economy since the great depression and they are zealously digging the hole deeper. We have anarchists trying to shut down Wall Street, Michael Moore threatening violence, and a stock market in a state of fiscal schizophrenia. In the midst of all this mayhem, our illustrious leader is helping out by blaming everyone’s misfortune on the rich! Put plainly…we as a nation are in deep kimchi.
So I have decided that instead of letting Head Muscle fade away, I am going to devote it for the foreseeable future to promoting the one person that I believe has the experience, common sense, moral character, and clarity of vision necessary to pull this great nation out of the quicksand. I truly believe that the perilous times we find ourselves in call for a leader and a visionary the likes of Mr. Cain. We need someone who will embrace the free market principles that made this the greatest country on earth; someone who believes in American exceptionalism and will not settle for making us less that what we are. We need someone who can carry Ronald Reagan’s dream of “a shining city on a hill” to its final realization without apologizing or looking back. When I look at Romney, Perry, Paul, Bachmann, and Gingrich all I see is politics as usual…and these are not usual times.
Now I grant you that Herman Cain has little experience in the political world. In fact he has never even held a major political office. This lack of political experience is an incontrovertible fact. I would remind you however…as Herman himself noted…that it has been the “seasoned” politicians that have driven us into the wall at full speed? Yes my friends, we need a change…real change….and his name is Herman Cain.
Please check into Head Muscle regularly for much more insight on the Cain campaign, and don’t forget to go to the Cain for President website yourself and read about the man firsthand. I would also like to urge all of my fellow bloggers to become active in the Cain campaign. You can check out our Twitter feed @blogforCain for up to the moment updates, and please consider linking Head Muscle to your sites. I would also like to add as many links as I can to the sites of fellow Cain supporters, so please leave me your URL in a comment. Our goal is to start a grass roots network of blogs all working together to help our nation realize Herman Cain’s vision.
If you think Romney and Perry have things all locked up, let me remind you that folks were saying the very same thing about Hillary back in 2007. If Obama could do it…so Cain we!
