    This is my biggest problem with Cain. He is willing to blatantly violate the Constitution in this manner, and will hide being the facade of, "but the people want to!"

    Member of the KKK want to exterminate blacks, jews, catholics, etc. Doesn't f**king mean we let them.

    Herman Cain really is just horrible. What he says will corrupt and destroy America and her values, and I hope this man doesn't get a single vote for President, because he is absolutely wrong for this job.
    What does his being a former Godfather's Pizza CEO have to do with anything? Why even mention it? What sort of distraction is the reporter trying to play? Perhaps to place everything Mr.Cain says in a light of class-warfare so the left won't like him regardless of the unique merits and flaws of a given position?

    I think so.

    Probably highlighting the fact that he has little tangible experience significantly understanding law, the constitution, and how government practices work which may account for why he's making such outrageous claims such as communities banning a specific religion from buying land and building a building in line with all other codes in said location.

    When I first read the thread title, I saw "Mosquitos" and thought to myself, "Hell yeah!

    ...

    Mosques you say?

    I think so.
    Same thing that went on with Huckabee in 2008, who was always referred to as a Baptist Preacher though he'd spend the previous 16 years, and more of his professional life, in Government. I thought he handled himself extremely well in the primary debates, given how the media was trying to cast him as the (crazy) religous face of the Republican Party.

    So you're saying CEOs know nothing of the law or government.

    Well I guess if you want to live under Shariah then you have that right.

    Little piece of trivia: Did you know that John Kerry served in Vietnam?

    The history of militia in the United States dates from the colonial era, such as in the American Revolutionary War.[38] Based on the British system, colonial militias were drawn from the body of adult male citizens of a community, town, or local region. Because there were usually few British regulars garrisoned in North America, colonial militia served a vital role in local conflicts, particularly in the French and Indian Wars. Before shooting began in the American War of Independence, American revolutionaries took control of the militia system, reinvigorating training and excluding men with Loyalist inclinations.[39] Regulation of the militia was codified by the Second Continental Congress with the Articles of Confederation. The revolutionaries also created a full-time regular army—the Continental Army—but because of manpower shortages the militia provided short-term support to the regulars in the field throughout the war.

    In colonial era Anglo-American usage, militia service was distinguished from military service in that the latter was normally a commitment for a fixed period of time of at least a year, for a salary, whereas militia was only to meet a threat, or prepare to meet a threat, for periods of time expected to be short. Militia persons were normally expected to provide their own weapons, equipment, or supplies, although they may later be compensated for losses or expenditures.[40]

    So without an armed population there would have been no militias. The Founders knew exactly what they were saying.
    Of course they were ... people had the right to bear arms for the sake of a well-regulated militia. But we live in a different day and age where a "well-regulated militia" isn't what it was back then. If you were to guess, what percentage of Americans who own firearms even belong to a well-regulated militia?

    And according to what you wrote, that should exclude women.

    Re: Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques

    I disagree with Cain. The citizens of a community don't have the right to infringe upon others their right to freedom of religion and worship. They dislike Sharia Law and Muslim theocracies, but doing this is no worse than countries like Saudi Arabia that ban all non-Muslim religious buildings and other religious things.
