Would you vote for him for president....Why or why not?
/QUOTE]Would you vote for him for president....Why or why not?[
I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher. Because I don't like the guy.
I voted no.
The sum total of the man's political experience is having given one radically controversial speech at a prayer breakfast.
I agree with some of the "proposals" he made and I disagree with some others, but all he really presented were broad and bold ideas. I haven't heard any follow up from him on how he proposes such radical changes would actually be implimented.
In all honesty, I can give a speech as good or better than Dr. Carson's.
It wouldn't qualify me to be president by any means.
I'd consider him I suppose, but I'd prefer someone with more political experience, more foreign policy experience, and less socially conservative.
I don't know enough about him other than the Prayer Breakfast thing.
In the case of a not well known figure like this one, it might help to list what he stands for. Without knowing that it is impossible to say.
Ummm, doesn't he have prostate cancer?
Have not heard that. Pretty easy to beat with early detection though.
I wonder do you ever check out the positions of politicians that are running for office without asking someone to do it for you?
Oh except for the Conservative part someone like Obama?
I wonder if you have read his position on the issues.
Dr. Ben Carson said:"It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society, and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality -- it doesn’t matter what they are -- they don’t get to change the definition."
I voted "yes" right after I read your hate-filled comment.No because he's an insanely radical right wing bigoted asshole.
After the 9/11 crisis, if the president had seized the moment and declared that we would become petroleum independent within the next 10 years, business, industry, academia, and everyone else would have been foursquare behind him, and we would have been much further ahead in the fight against terrorism than we are today.
Oil prices would have fallen dramatically in an attempt to soften our resolve, but good leadership would hopefully have recognized and compensated for such a ploy.
- The moderate Arab states would have been terrified about losing their economic base and would most probably have turned over Osama bin Laden.
- An enormous number of jobs would likely have been created in the process of switching over to a new energy source, and Wall Street would have been booming.
- The environmentalists would have been ecstatic.
- Most importantly, the terrorists would have been deprived of much-needed funding, which would have gradually strangled their efforts.
