Herman Cain endorses Newt
Newt Gingrich announced at our West Palm Beach Tea Party Express rally that Herman Cain has endorsed him. The audience, mostly Gingrich supporters, were excited.
This was the first day of our four day Tea Party Express tour of Florida. We begin with a rally in Jacksonville, then Winter Park; Gingrich spoke at our third rally of the day in West Palm beach. On every tour, I enjoy meeting new patriots and hugging old brother and sister patriots at the rallies.
We have TV and WiFi on the tour bus. Today, while traveling on the bus, I responded to a hand full of negative emails. These doom and gloom people basically said both political parties are corrupt and I am an idiot for thinking the efforts of our Tea Party team will make a difference.
To them, I say, so what should we do? Should we park the Tea Party Express tour bus and go home? Do we simply surrender the country to Obama?
Well, I say not on my watch. Yes, both parties have negative issues. But, what part of four more years of Barack Hussein Obama will end America as we know it do you not understand? The stakes are far too high to stay home election day because both parties suck or because your candidate did not win the Republican nomination.
If my favorite candidate does not win the Republican nomination, I love my country far too much to have a temper tandem, stopping working to defeat Obama and stay home election day. Obama MUST be stopped. Obamacare MUST be repealed. If not, it is checkmate - the socialism, Marxist and Progressives will have won. Freedom, for which many have made the ultimate sacrifice, will be over. Government will have complete control of our lives. Good Lord people, this is not just another election!
How could anyone who claims to love this country allow it to be destroyed simply because they did not "get their way" or they felt uncomfortable voting for an imperfect candidate?
This is my country. I love her, warts and all. I will not stand by and allow her to be overrun by this evil administration. As God continues to give me grace, I will fight to defend and save her against all enemies foreign and domestic.
May God bless my nationwide tea party family. And may God bless Tea Party Express!

Update from K.D. Tharp:
Conservative Washington outsiders continue to coalesce around former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. At a prominent Palm Beach County Lincoln Day Dinner, former conservative presidential candidate Herman Cain made a surprise appearance to endorse Gingrich. Cain said we need to solve three problems in the country: the state of the union is not good, we have become a nation of crises, and we have a crisis of leadership in the White House. Cain's reason for endorsing Gingrich was that he believed Gingrich to be the right leader to solve that crisis of leadership. Cain continued: Gingrich is a patriot, is not afraid of bold ideas, and is willing to go through the sausage grinder of politics because he cares about America. Gingrich asked Cain to serve on a commission on jobs, economic growth, and tax reform which would develop the legislation to be a part of the 21st Century Contract With America. This Contract is patterned after Gingrich's successful Contract With America which helped bring Republicans to power in congress during the 1994 elections.
Cain's endorsement comes on the heels of former Governor Sarah Palin calling on Florida voters to "rage against the machine" and vote for Newt Gingrich. Previously Palin had similarly called for the voters of South Carolina to vote for Gingrich as well.
The previous Republican candidate to drop out of the race was conservative Governor Rick Perry who endorsed Gingrich upon his withdrawal. Gingrich has asked Perry to serve on a project regarding a platform plank and development of 21st Century Contract legislation to implement 10th amendment issues which would return a substantial amount of power back to the states.
Gingrich referred to the book "Team of Rivals", a book about President Lincoln's incorporation of his Republican rivals into his cabinet and incorporation of their initiatives and ideas to unite the party for his election campaign and subsequent term as president. Republicans will need to unite in order to defeat Obama and increase their congressional power in the 2012 elections.
