8. there is a hint of truth to that
but that is where it ends. If anyone gets into an argument on this with a repub on this point, I would use this. The Civil Rights fight was for the soul of the country. It was about the constitution and all it stands for. Cain had a decision to make. It was himself or the soul of the country. He decided for himself and then benefited from everything else that people died for. He has never said thank you. As JFK said "Ask not what your country can do for you Ask what can you do for our country" Herman said me me me.
