    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I didn't bring up Hitler, but what apst said is true. Hitler used the exit tax to disincentive Jews from leaving Germany. The reason the United States has an exit tax is to disincentive the wealthy from leaving the country.

    Which even if true, fails to validate the statement that Carson made. If Robert Gates or Leon Panetta labeled the sequester cuts endured by the Military as the worst event since Slavery, they'd be wrong as well, no matter their expertise.

    And there might be three out of that twenty that support Obamadon'tcare.

    Correct, they would be. But cutting the military budget doesn't force citizens to do anything. Unlike Obamadon'tcare.

    Except that sequester cuts don't have anything in common with slavery while some of the provisions of the ACA are involuntary servitude.

    Absolutely nothing about the ACA is remotely comparable with slavery. I know it's a big thing among libertarians to compare anything compulsory to "slavery," but all that serves to do is make you look like you lack even a modicum of perspective.

    Carson's comment, while stupid, didn't directly compare the ACA to Slavery, but rather labeled it the worst thing since. My analogy was pointing out the absurdity of excusing stupid comments based on experience within one's field alone.

    But guess what - I do agree that it does seem totally unfair.

    Like a lot of things in life.
    That seems like a strange viewpoint to have towards something in the governments control to resolve. The current attitude many in government have towards immigration is to make it easier to get in and yet harder to get out. In 2008 they revised the laws to make the exit tax apply to more Americans and yet the same people that voted for that want to give amnesty to people that came here illegally. If you were going to pick one of the two position what would be your motivation to pick amnesty for law breakers over allowing citizens to leave your country willingly?

    He wasn't the best choice in the primaries.

    Electing someone else that's completely inexperienced isn't the answer.
