    Nah, doesn't horrify me in the least. I don't generally base my feelings upon who agrees with me on issues or doesn't. If anything, I'm generally happy if someone feels the same way I do regardless of who or what ideology they are. I absolutely believe we agree on most fiscal issues....I just think we have some significant differences in regards to social issues, size and scope of government issues, and consistency of principles and their varying importance.

    No because he's proven to be an unsatisfying one trick pony. One speech at a National Prayer Breakfast followed by an MD next to your name does not make a qualified Presidential candidate in my book. Since then I haven't been impressed with much of what he's said as it's mostly been religious commentary or social conservative sermonizing. I also think he would be crushed in a Presidential primary and general election.

    Why is it every time a new face with a little charisma repeats the same tired truisms conservatives have been bleating at anyone who will listen shows up they treat him like some sort of prophet?

    The fact a person would feel the need to throw these problems in Obama's face when they are mostly the fault of ordinary Americans and social elites suggests he isn't aware enough of the realities of power to make an effective leader.

    America's "fiscal irresponsibility" is just an aspect of a larger and much more pervasive problem, which is reckless trade practices that empower American rivals and push ordinary Americans into poverty. The source of that problem is the unchecked power of social elites tempted by the potential of foreign markets to enlarge their personal fortunes.

    The means of fixing it is to stop them influencing our tax or trade policies.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    sry navy boy this guy's claim to fame is just that he succinctly offered a clear headed alternative to Obamacare (one that would resolve the issue completely).
    What this guy is good at is pediatric brain surgery
    In fact when it comes to leading the free world, he's less qualified than Lt Col Alan West
    and I wouldn't vote for him either. For the first time in my life, I didn't bother to vote in the last election
    and see no need to ever vote again. Be advised you will never ever
    be given a candidate that will stop or even slow this headlong rush towards totalitarianism we find ourselves on.

    What you try and do is find a candidate that beliefs on the issues is close to yours regardless of the party he or she is attached to. You are never going to find one that agrees with you on every issue. I am a registered independent and vote that way. It works.

    You do realize that if that is so it could be the end of this country as we know it?

    I would not vote for any of those lefties...Some of them pretend to be moderates but they are not...Powell is the worse of all and I hate to say that about a veteran..
