Crying about it just makes you look weak.
    Crying about it? Okay, whatever.

    Is a Black conservative any different than a regular ol conservative? I can't stand the idea of ANY conservative in the WH. Black, blue, orange or teal.

    Psycho: The name's Francis Soyer, but everybody calls me Psycho. Any of you guys call me Francis, and I'll kill you.
    Leon: Ooooooh.
    Psycho: You just made the list, buddy. And I don't like nobody touching my stuff. So just keep your meat-hooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I'll kill you. Also, I don't like nobody touching me. Now, any of you homos touch me, and I'll kill you.
    Sergeant Hulka: Lighten up, Francis.

    I honestly hope that MULTIPLE people who can actually get elected run
    i dont care what party they claim, even though to get elected they will have to claim republican or democrat, which also sucks and is another issue.
    Republicans have been solidly behind candidates that can't win of late. Seems they haven't learned from the past yet.

    You are living in a delusional time warp if you think the United States is going to elect an extremely socially conservative young earth creationist who denies evolution and thinks homosexuality is a choice in 2016. Carson is on the wrong side of a culture war that has been all but won no matter how much some would like to stick their heads in the sand.

    No, that's the view you have in the bubble. The country is not really any worse than it's ever been and in fact has improved in some areas.
