This was just a few weeks ago and local, I'd have gone if I could. PS-Carson has now registered with the republican party. I havent seen it covered in the news. Something for you to look forward to.
Ben Carson is a very gifted neurosurgeon. Nothing in his resume suggests any qualifications for President of the United States, and on an ideological level, I find a lot of his positions and beliefs to be, mildly put, nuttier than squirrel crap.
I'm still thinking about this girl despite how long its been since I found out about her being elected. Which is very unusual for me. What she did was amazing.
I do have a few questions for all those that voted for her though...and this is in no way meant to belittle this woman in the slightest....but...Do those voters KNOW that this girl is only 18? Fresh out of high school? Is this an indication of what "low information voters" actually means? Or did they actually know and actually like this young woman this much? Or did they know but just not care because they absolutely hated what the other guy stood for?
I'm still shaking my head at this. In amazement, not condemnation.

I believe voters did know. She beat a two-term incumbent in the primary, so there was ample time to learn her age, and her father was a longtime state senator representing the same small district.
Interestingly, West Virginia has a "citizen's legislature" that meets for only 60 days between January and April. Will West Virginia voters elect an 18-year-old lawmaker? | PBS NewsHour Extra

Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
