Do the scare tactics, deceptions and distortions of politics frustrate you? Have you grown cynical about the lack of real-issue leadership in Washington? Do you often feel as if politicians are talking down to you-that they think you're stupid? Well, that is how politics-as-usual makes Herman Cain feel.

In They Think You're Stupid, Herman Cain offers an action plan to help the marginalized voter find a true voice in the political process, while at the same time offering political party leaders an avenue back to the heart of American democracy-the voters. Cain identifies a new voter phenomenon occurring across the nation. Newly registered voters, young African-Americans, unhappy Democrats, and uncommitted Republicans are refusing to identify strongly with either political party. Cain provides insightful analysis of the factors that have led to what he terms the "politically homeless." While Democrats are on the road to irrelevancy, Cain believes that Republicans have an opportunity to capture the loyalty of this growing segment of America.

Herman Cain pinpoints a wide range of issues where he believes voters are unified-from the threat of terrorism to "economic slavery." He argues that the need to see real results around these issues can motivate the "politically homeless" to become more engaged in the political process, and by their very presence, transform policies and politics in Washington.

Former senator Zell Miller sees Cain's message as vital for political parties as they approach new elections, "Party leaders would do well to listen to him, all party leaders. Cain is on to something very important for our future. The kind of democracy we have enjoyed for more than two hundred years won't survive voter apathy. When the voters' trust is lost, so is their support. To their own demise, many politicians play the politics as usual game and continue to think of voters as mindless and willing to follow anyone because of a few well-placed jabs and sound bites. Candidates from either party who are more concerned with how the party fares will find themselves with plenty of free time on their hands."

From the perspective of a successful businessman, They Think You're Stupid offers hope for the disenfranchised voter and common-sense advice to the Republican Party. Cain explains, "The Republicans have a unique opportunity to dominate the political landscape for decades if they do a better job of reaching out to the party outsiders with results, rather than waiting for outsiders to reach in." Cain sees a new day in American politics, and that day must include a voice for the "politically homeless."

    A fair perspective, a common sense approach.

    I found the author of this book to have a clear understading of why politics are the way they are, and how people from both sides of the political spectrum should pay attention and address the real issues at hand, rather than bashing, finger-pointing, and not coming up with real solutions. People should learn to vote for someone by being informed about how they are planning to go about things while holding office, not by their party affiliation or propaganda budget. Herman Cain calls on black voters to stop this 'block voting' and think for themselves before giving their vote to a candidate.

    "they think your stupid" is very hard to put down. the arthur and ceo and former republican senate candidate gives hope to republicans and conservatives who dont like the way things are going and want to make a difference and gives a very intresting indepth plan on how to get through to the voters in your district and the country showing the tactics of the opposition and giving clear common sense approachs to win the majority this book would make a great gift idea for a friend or family member and since mr cain is now running foir president it is a must read.

    The title nails it, but while he is correct on how out-of-touch the Democrats are, he makes a pile of assumptions about the rightness of the GOP cause. (Ironically, he both says voters are smarter than Republicans think--then blames disagreements in the rank-and-file on inability to grasp Economics 101---or failing to make 'the case' understandable when even some GOP see no case at all).

    Maybe a Third Party?

    I was looking forward and was disappointed. Though accurate on Democrats being out of touch with the common people and Republicans playing the right cards, some details are wrong (e.g., the citation of Reagan citing Lincoln which was disproven as Lincoln) or self-contradictory (Republicans are smarter than thought---but do not know Economics 101). Chapter 5 is the best one. My thinking is that his goals would best be met by voting Libertarian.
