In the crowded field of GOP presidential candidates, Herman Cain stands out. On a stage of career politicians, Herman stands for more than 40 years of real job creation experience. In our communities, he stands for our values and our vision for America.
Now, many candidates are asking us to stand with them as they compete for the Republican nomination and ultimately, the presidency. Instead, Herman Cain is asking for permission to stand with us.
Herman has known every facet of life of ordinary, hard-working Americans. Through "sweat equity" and determination, Herman rose up through poverty and up the corporate ladder. He, like us, knows what it’s like to struggle and to dream. He understands the joys and the challenges of raising a family, making a payroll and planning for the future.
That’s why he talks like us, acts like us and thinks like us. Herman Cain is one of us. That’s why he wants to stand with us.
This inspired us to develop a series of videos called "Herman Cain Stands With Us," showcasing the hard-working, decent Americans who, like you, know that Herman Cain has what it takes to turn this country around and preserve the American Dream.
In the first video of the series, we visit Kent Short, a butcher from Santa Paula, California. Kent is a small business owner who "turns steers into steaks" (vegetarians, cover your eyes!) and whose carne asada is his delicious trademark. Kent, like so many of America’s job creators, feels that this economy is "in the tank" and that the federal government only makes things worse with sky-high taxes and regulations that cripple businesses.
Watch the video to find out why Kent knows Herman Cain stands with him:
We want to hear why you know Herman Cain stands with you! Submit a response of 250 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will select the most thoughtful and original submission as the winner. We will then fly out the Herman Cain production crew to your hometown to film your story. Your video will be used in the "Herman Cain Stands with Me" video campaign and you’ll also receive a Herman Cain prize pack filled with campaign merchandise and a few special gifts from Mr. Cain himself! Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2011.
Thank you for allowing us to stand with and for you,
Friends of Herman Cain
