Candidate Challenge: Herman Cain

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has submitted the first video response to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Two weeks ago we asked all of the 2012 candidates, including President Obama, as we did in 2008, to send us a video with their ideas for increasing America’s low voter participation.

As you’ll see in Mr. Cain’s video, he specifically answers our question about whether or not he believes the American voting system is broken. Mr. Cain says he does not believe the American voting system is broken.

Mr. Cain acknowledges, however, America’s low voter turnout in his response. “More people need to participate,” he says, “in order to enhance the integrity as well as to better represent the voice of the people.” One of the fixes Mr. Cain says he’d like to see to “improve the integrity of our system,” is “requiring picture IDs” for voters. Watch the video for his complete answer.

Stay tuned here for more candidate responses. There are only twelve days before the deadline for responses.

    Even better. We could require all citizens to have their social security numer tattooed on their forearms when the turn 18. And we could color code the ink used so that it represents the persons political, racial, and financial class. Perhaps even a 6 pointed star badge that people below the poverty line are required to wear at all times so they can easily be identified. Finally, can we also require women that have had or support abortion to have a tattoo of a big red A on the back of their left hand. That’s progress I think we can all get behind.
