    No, they're not. Real Americans use their own money to promote the social projects they approve of, they don't steal from others to fund things in violation of the Constitution.

    The passage of TARP is often cited as a catalyst for the growth of the Tea Party. It is surprising that any "real" conservative would be fine with the federal government intervening in privately owned businesses to such a great degree as TARP did.

    What ever happened to letting poorly run companies fail and letting the free market sort out which companies would succeed the failed ones?

    Well, like I said he explained his reasoning in the article he wrote back when it was happening. He has been involved with the tea party movement since the start, so apparantly they didn't hold it against him. I haven't found anything yet about the stimulus spending and his opinion.

    I am fine with his stance toward TARP and actually agree with him. The only difference is I am more fiscally liberal who thinks government intervention in the economy is not always a bad thing. Compare that with Mr. Cain, who feels that government is a shackle that slows economic growth.

    You are his most ardent supporter on this board, and you were unaware of his stance on TARP. Is it really that hard to believe that many Tea Partiers do not hold it against him because they do not know that he supported it?

    That could be, however, many ardent tea party supporters also think there wasn't a lot of choice when it came to TARP. Apparently, the whole economy was going to collapse if we didn't pass it. At least that's what we were led to believe.
    What were Bush's words? I know my stomach did a roll when he said it.
    "We have to give up the free market, so we can save it?" Something like that. Anyway, people still insist we had to do it. Cain is a successful businessman, and he thought it was the right thing to do.

    Well, yes, many Americans wanted the federal government to do something to avert what appeared to be probably the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. Except even at that time there were plenty of Americans, mostly the earliest of the current Tea Party members, that opposed TARP or any form of government intervention.

    You mentioned that many economists claimed that our nation's economy was teetering on the edge of a cliff, thus the reason why some Tea Partiers begrudgingly supported TARP. My question to you is, why does any of that matter? If a person feels that government can only get in the way when it comes to the economy, then why not let the free market do its thing? Had the economy completely crumbled, then that was the price we as Americans had to pay for over 30 years of our own overindulgence and irresponsible behavior.

    I will wait to see how Herman Cain responds to this article as it becomes more well known. I will gladly give him credit if he sticks by his convictions, but I have a feeling that he will backtrack as fast as he can from his support of TARP.

    Because, according to these people, the government helped caused the problem and it would be foolish to let the entire system collapse. Its better to prop it up and reform than suffer unnecessarily.

    it turns out he is a federal reserve banker crony, of course he argues that taxpayers had to bail out the failed cronie banks, but the tea party will not be in favor of his position when they learn it.
