    I wonder do you ever check out the positions of politicians that are running for office without asking someone to do it for you?

    Have not heard that. Pretty easy to beat with early detection though.

    He was diagnosed in 2002 and why he cut way back on his medical practice.

    Is he running for office? Maybe you could then link to his campaign site.

    Before any run for POTUS I'd want to see him serve in an executive capacity at the state level. Preferrably a governorship.

    No, too right wing.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    I would consider it, but I would need to know a lot more detail about his positions. My concerns primarily are as follows: 1) while he sounds good on some things, I have no idea where he would stand on most things; 2) His lack of political experience could be a huge detriment--In my opinion George H.W. Bush was the last truly qualified POTUS we have had; and 3) Almost every doctor I have encountered goes off into crazy land if you talk to them about politics long enough and try to press them for their rationale.

    I fear he is a one-trick pony.
