    If the road to hell is paved with good intentions I'd much rather by headed there vs where we are going
    Man, politicians quit representing us as soon as the election is over. Around 90% of Americans want to stay out of Syria. Do you think they care what we want?

    Around 90% of Americans wanted to amend the laws on guns in regards to sales, distribution, regulation, etc. Do you think they care what we want?

    Majority of America wants marijuana decriminalized and even legalized. You think they care what Americans want?

    They are all about what they can put in their own pocket and campaign chests. Democrats. Republicans. Two sides of the same rotten coin. Screw you. Screw me.

    We don't even know who we elect. They are a public relations/marketing product. They are an image. we don't really know who the **** they are.

    hmmmmm .... Republicans won't like him because of things like this ...

    “Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.”
    ― Ben Carson

    “Being a doctor at Johns Hopkins does not make me any better in God's sight than the individual who has not had the opportunity to gain such an education but who still works hard.”
    ― Ben Carson, Think Big: Unleashing Your Potential for Excellence


    and I don't like him because of things like this ...

    “Marriage is between a man and a woman. No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA [the North American Man/Boy Love Association], be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition.”

    Without the Republican vote and mine, he has no chance ...

    If you don't think they take domestic political concerns into consideration with foreign policy, you pretty much need a wake-up call. On the other hand, if you think they will blindly follow what the majority of the American populace seems to agree on that exact moment, no, you will not find that.

    A decent chunk of the time, they know us better than we know ourselves.

    I know, continue to masturbate the masses like they actually know anything. It feels great to attack the elite, doesn't it? Even though we know that for whatever virtues the average person has, we continually underestimate the systems our leaders create and actually use, because we're so gosh darn awesome and democratic.

    No, it is fundamentally against my moral compass to vote for someone that wants to force his religion on others.

    Would Church attendance be mandatory during his administration?
    Or would there be slaughter of Atheists?
    Maybe mass deportations of Moslem's

    I'm taking this to mean his strong views on gay marriage and abortion. Why is it if someone holds those PERSONAL views somehow that equates to forcing their religion onto others? There are atheists making a secular argument against gay marriage. There are atheists that find abortion morally wrong. There are homosexuals against gay marriage. Not just Christians but Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews often hold the PERSONAL views that gay marriage and abortion to be immoral or against their social ethics. If a Buddhist was running for office and held the PERSONAL views that gay marriage and abortion to be against his/her social ethics would you consider that to be someone forcing their beliefs on you?

    What a moral compass should be directing is to ask the question does Dr. Carlson believe the Federal government has no Constitutional right to define marriage and that Roe v Wade was bad law. That these issues should be resolved at the state level of government where the people decide what their own social ethics code will be within their local governments. In other words, is Dr. Carlson an advocate for states rights? If so, then you and a whole lot of people need to adjust their compasses. If he believes the Federal government has the right to define marriage and outlaw abortion nationally with a stroke of a pen, then that would be considered forcing one's beliefs onto another.

    It doesn't matter what you believe. If the person in question isn't harming anybody in any way, you have absolutely zero right to use government force against him. Gay marriage does not effect christians in any way shape or form. It harms nobody.

    All I hear is this pathetic whining about how it demeans their marriage, which is total BS. If your marriage is demeaned by two other strangers getting married, then your marriage is in really bad shape and you should work on it.

    Simply put, christians believe homosexuality is wrong because their bible told them so. They then think that even though it harms nobody they need to force this biblical view on others. How about we just mind our own business if it isn't effecting you? If you had any respect for liberty whatsoever that's what you'd do.
