I wonder if you have read his position on the issues.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 wonder do you ever check out the positions of politicians that are running for office without asking someone to do it for you?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.
I would consider it, but I would need to know a lot more detail about his positions. My concerns primarily are as follows: 1) while he sounds good on some things, I have no idea where he would stand on most things; 2) His lack of political experience could be a huge detriment--In my opinion George H.W. Bush was the last truly qualified POTUS we have had; and 3) Almost every doctor I have encountered goes off into crazy land if you talk to them about politics long enough and try to press them for their rationale.
ALL of them?I wonder if you have read his position on the issues.
Which makes me figure that the guy is a lunatic assclown.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."
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.
