Herman Cain: 'Stupid People Are Ruining America'

Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference in Washington, D.C., former presidential candidate and talk host Herman Cain hoped uninformed people would stop voting because he quipped, “Stupid people are ruining America.”

After pointed out that only 58 percent of registered voter showed up at the polls in the last presidential election Cain said,  “What about the 42% that stay at home?” 

“I have even heard people say, ‘Well, I don’t vote because I don’t know what’s going on, and I say ‘good!’” he continued. “Stupid people are ruining America and I’m glad some of a them stay home … Those of us that are informed have to out-vote the stupid people.” 

Cain told the audience  “you have got to become ambassadors of intelligence, ambassadors of information. So number one, stay informed!”
