    I did not call you a teabagger. I was actually starting to like your posts until you said I was calling you a teabagger. I, too, don't like the government involved in some stuff, but it has to get involved in others, especially to protect minorities against the tyranny of the majority from time to time ...

    I have absolutely no idea. It depends on a lot of factors I'm need to learn. The only things I know about him is he's black, one of the leading brain surgeons in the world who work for John Hopkins, I think was raised by a single mom and was disadvantaged, worked hard in school and did something great with his life, was invited by the Whitehouse to speak at a faith-based breakfast where he shared his compelling story of coming from a difficult upbringing and encouraged political cooperation in Washington. After that speech pundits on the right fell in love with him. Other than that, I'm clueless. I don't even know which party he supports. I could support him from POTUS but I'd need to learn a lot more.

    Without knowing anything else I definitely would support him for Surgeon General, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Secretary of Education, FDA Director, UN Ambassador or Vice-President.

    states should have the right to deny some people freedoms, is that right? what if a state wants to define marriage a a union only between members of the same race? what if a state wants to allow a restaurant owner the right to deny service to blacks simply because they're black? it's a fairly common libertarian position ... you O.K. with it?

    After knowing very little about him, I just scanned over his Wikipedia article. Ben Carson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I like him a lot. If he ran he'd be on my list of serious contenders for my vote, maybe the leading contender. I'm in no way saying I'm worthy to be compared to him but based on this article I can't think of very many people I see as representing my values. Again, this is all up front impressions so who knows? Certainly and American icon.

    It is not up to the federal government to define marriage.
    This battle should be left in the states. This way each side is not forced to accept one or the other.
    Those who do not want to recognize gay marriage by the vote of the people have that right in their state and it should be upheld in the courts.
    Those who do recognize gay marriage by the vote of the people have that right in their state as well and it should be upheld in the courts.
    This way both have the FREEDOM to move to any state that supports their views and no one is denied.
    This whole issue needs to be removed from review of the Federal government period.
    the governments job is to protect rights and thats what it is doing, grant equal rights isnt denying anybody anything, its the ultimate freedom, sorry people should not be allowed to violate others rights by vote if that was the case there would probably be states where women and minorities would still not be equal. No thanks thats no country i want to be a part of and thankfully thats not america.

    If people dont like equal rights they are in the wrong country

    Re: Would you consider voting for Dr. Ben Carson for president in 2016?

    like i said earlier he could never get my vote, not only for lack of experience but for these three strikes

    doesnt just have anti-abortion beliefs, he wants laws that ban abortion: NO strike 1
    doesnt just have anti-gay beliefs, he wants laws that discriminating and infringe on the rights and equality of gay Americans: NO (not to mention he is a bigot) strike 2
    doesnt just have the belief, he doesn't want people to own semi-automatic guns if they are around other people (towns/cities): NO strike 3 he's out

    three strikes he is out and those are big strikes because he wants laws to enforce them

    while he does have ideas i like :Ben Carson on the Issues

    i cant vote for anybody that wants to make the above law, they simply dont understand america, what it is and how it works

    While we're on the topic of freedom, why do you feel it is your right to use the government to take away freedoms from homosexuals that you readily enjoy? Do you feel that they're subhuman and less deserving of the rights you have?

    In America, 51% can not vote away the rights of a group of people. We all have equal rights under the law and the supreme court has affirmed 14 times over the course of 150 years that marriage is a fundamental human right. So why does your hate run so deep that you want to deny someone basic human rights?

    You have a point Navy Pride. I personally wouldn't vote for him because his views obviously contradicts with mine. He is the right wing version of Obama. With that being said, would it be hypocritical of anyone on the right to say they would vote for Carson considering that he has even less political experience than the guy you all ridicule for not having enough experience? Don't get me wrong, I believe that guy is extremely gifted but at this point he will not make it out of the primaries.
