    I don't care at this point as he's not even a contender. There's plenty of time for research later. Liberal hate is the only barometer I need right now.

    Guy is all over the place. He is not a small government conservative, he is not a social conservative, he is not a liberal in either place, but his positions tend to be extreme where he has them. 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...
    "After the 9/11 crisis, if the president had seized the moment and declared that we would become petroleum independent within the next 10 years, business, industry, academia, and everyone else would have been foursquare behind him, and we would have been much further ahead in the fight against terrorism than we are today.

    1. The moderate Arab states would have been terrified about losing their economic base and would most probably have turned over Osama bin Laden.


    How would they have turned over Bin Laden when they didn't have him? Second, we are becoming quite oil sufficient and oil prices are still high. Market is too big for us to drop the prices. US demand is still globally priced in. To actually do this, we'd either need to nationalize and isolate or entirely stop using oil. Neither of which Carson seems to have talked about.

    An enormous number of jobs would likely have been created in the process of switching over to a new energy source, and Wall Street would have been booming.
    And what source is that? Magic? How would it arrive? Magic?

    Guy is a loon when it comes to basic commodities.

    Yeah, that was the point. As I read that my jaw dropped. It is easy to see why he is popular with the tea party, simplistic solutions for simple minds, no concern about facts or the real world. Plus socially conservative, which is what actually defines the Tea Party(despite their claims otherwise).

    Never heard of the guy which means he isn't Presidential material. I did write-in votes for Mickey Mouse twice though...does that count?
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    strange-------people dont seem to have a problem with a person being elected to the senate ,which have no political experience, ....which the founders stated that the senate was the upper house of congress, meant for people with political experience.

    yet, people think someone running for president must have political experience..........strange.
