He supports gun control, so he will not get a republican nominee. He is opposed to deportation of illegal immigrants, but supports government covering catastrophic medical costs. He would have no chance as a conservative. Supports a flat tax which would kill his support with liberals.

    And then there is bat**** insane stuff...
    At least he has positions on the issues, thus the ability to lead. The last two clowns running for POTUS were for all three sides of most issues yet somewhat opposed to them as well. The problem that we have is that each party's primary emphasizes the fringes, thus we get both party's candidates (after the primary) trying to swing back to the "popular" center without actually admitting/denying that their positions have "evolved" somewhat. Our only hope is to make major changes in our selection of congress critters if we hope to be goverened without a clueless POTUS taking over ever more power.

    Well, first off mostly he does not have a stance, and in the case of most of the candidates, they did have records to run on and base off. He has not. And the "swing back to the center" has been around my entire lifetime. I remember Carter/Reagan as my first election I followed and guess what...Reagan did just that in his campaign.

    That's really it. At first I was going to research this guy, but then I decided that all I really needed to do was read the opinion of a liberal. The stronger the hate, the more I like the guy.

    Horribly inexperienced, can find little actual useful information about his views regarding actual significant governmental issues, and pretty much just parrots stereotypical hyper social conservative views that promote big government...on what little I've been able to turn up on him, not a chance unless the other candidate was somehow even worse

    Probably because Dr. Carson has no intention of ever running for political office, especially POTUS. Reagan led, Carter micro-managed.

    Obama is not a leader or even much of an organizer. Many say that he "leads from behind" but that is simply saying that he takes credit for whatever he can and denies doing/causing whatever else happened that he disliked.

    So basically you don't care about stances on issues, principles, ideology, or views...you just care I'd the other side dislikes him. An amazingly intelligent barometer to measure whether a candidate is worthwhile and an enlightening insight into your principles and values

    doesnt just have anti-abotion beliefs he wants laws that banned abortion: NO
    doesnt just have anti-gay beliefs he wants laws that discriminating and infringe on the rights and equalit of gay americans: NO (not to mention he is a bigot)
    doesnt just have the belief he doesn't want people to own semi-automatic guns if they are around other people (towns/cities)

    tree strikes he is out and those are big strikes

    I only know his positions on abortion and homosexuality. Both of his positions are absurd. He also has ZERO experience in government, LOL. So, that's a no.

    Also, literally the only reason white conservatives want him to run is because he's black and conservative. It's so transparent. It reminds me of the time McCain's campaign pulled Palin out of their ass as a disrespectful, transparent attempt to get disillusioned female Clinton voters.
