    I like Carson, I just don't think he'd have a prayer. He's extremely intelligent and can deal with pressure. I'd have to study his politics a bit more first though.

    It is imperative that we defeat the "Wicked witch" and we still have 3 years to study Carson.

    You drew the reference that he'd be like Obama in that regard. I just want to know why we'd want to make that mistake again.

    I don't like the idea of someone with zero political experience suddenly becoming President. That's been half the problem with Obama, he has no idea how the sausage is made, so to speak. It's nice to have an agenda, but if you can't get it done in Congress it's just nice words.

    It doesn't matter who the hell gets elected the pro-death crowd will still be dismembering babies in the womb past 16 weeks while teen pregnancy rates continue to climb, there will be lesbian navy seals getting married, the illegals will all get amnesty the deficit spending will continue as the gubbermints' intrusions into your life only increase exponentially. No kiddies the time to reverse these things at the ballot box has long since past.

    You missed my point or maybe I did not make it clear.........If he was as Redress painted him then he would be a bleeding heart liberal like Obama is what I meant.

    Giving fancy speeches doesn't change the fact he would be grossly inexperienced in regards to governmental executive experience and in the realm of foreign policy. Furthermore, I'm not basing my views off him off what Redress has said...so far from all I've read of watched he seems to be staunchly Socially Conservative, and hasn't really fleshed out much of anything outside of that. Stances on Abortion and Gay Marriage are rather irrelevant to the bigger and legitimate issues facing us in terms of job creation, entitlement reform, our tax code, our debt and the deficit, size of government, national defense, immigration, the growing power of China, and energy independence.

    On the vast majority of those he's said basically empty platitudes that he has outlined ZERO ideas to address (And has zero experience to judge how he'd address it) such as his views on the debt. On other things, like Gun Control, his statements are hardly "true conservative" in nature.

    He's a woefully inexperienced social conservative with questionable history or stances in terms of every other facet of conservatism....hardly some shining light of a candidate. Perhaps that'll change in 3 years, though I don't see how he can do anything to fix his horrendous levels of experience...but as of now there's no way I'd feel comfortable casting a vote for him and saying "I trust this man to do good things for the country".
