    NO !
    I suspect that he is a libertarian/conservative...see who supports him....
    What we need is honesty and the truth.
    There is a definite possibility that some tenets of conservatism DO WORK.
    But, I believe that the same holds true with liberalism.
    What we need is balance.

    One of the better replies...
    And, yes, I know, I am being prejudiced.
    Carson , like me, may have some great ideas, unlike me, he has an education and smarts, I believe..
    Our radical ideas will be a challenge.

    That is NOT necessarily a plus..
    IMO, being on NPR is better.

    He equated homosexuality with pedophilia, even if he later apologized. This makes him not only a nubag, but an idiot as well.
    He's a religious turd across the board.
    Has some pretty unrealistic ideas on government reform. (let's force doctors to run for office!)

    Not a shot of winning at all.



    Dr. Carson is going to have a mighty hard time winning because he's not going to be on the ballot.

    The GOP will run some other, better known, loser who will get his backside handed to him just like Romney ended up.

    Don't take my word for it, wait and see.

    Well, you gotta give it to the man, he knows how to take a firm stand on the issues.

    Doesn't matter to me one way or the other, if he was their man, he wouldn't get my vote. I want them to run someone better, but even more, I want the neo-cons to fall apart entirely and stop being neo-Democratic fundamentalist retards. Then maybe they can field a candidate I can support.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Based on what Redress posted about his position on various issues, I agree with slightly more of his positions than I disagree with. But in the end I wouldn't vote for him because he's unqualified for the job.

    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    After voting in eight presidential elections (I didn't see any difference between the candidates in 2012 so I didn't bother going)
    I'm never voting ever again, there's no point in it. You should know this when you debate this crap "and knowing is half the battle"
