THE NEXT GOP CLOWN

He's officially the next GOP clown that will make the GOP look desperate and lose. Not that I care since I am not a Republican but they seem to like digging their grave even further by promoting laymen instead of the Pauls or Christie that are aware of the realities.

I'm wary of this guy...

He's a very savvy self-promoter, and probably just in it to sell some books or start a TV show. Call me cynical.

I still not sure what his

I still not sure what his policies are, like on foreign policy, domestic terrorism etc.. is he a neocon?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

When he was giving his

When he was giving his hypothetical situation of how to destroy the nation one of his keys was to "weaken the military."

Wouldnt mind getting some clarification on that.

Is anyone else sick of Obama

Is anyone else sick of Obama being the scapegoat for everything. As long as we have a boogie man we won't stand up to the problem, the whole system.

Yep, catch myself doing it

Yep, catch myself doing it once or twice, but thats the problem with governments keeping things secret, they wont tell us specifically, whose to blame........so who do we blame.

I console myself, in knowing obamas signed a few things to deserve mistrust, but ill give him this admission, even though as president, he is technically the boss of those outside the branches of checks and balances, so if he cant keep his house in order......who do we blame........republicans, democrats.........happy to, as soon as they open their damn books....untill then, who do we blame

a blame where a blame is due, at this stage, thats the only check and balance the people have, or are willing to do, without serious reason to go further, if a blame is enough, then i sigh in relief to what may have been

Anyway, yep, i do wish governments where more open, so blame goes directly to the ones who deserve it,, thats not to obsolve obama, his done more then enough, or more precisely, his done less done something

That "anyone but Obama" mantra

I heard day after day during the campaign season just about drove me crazy. It nicely kept people from bothering to look into ISSUES - the national debt, all these wars undeclared by Congress, abrogation of our Constitutional rights, ambiguities concerning the Federal Reserve, etc., etc. So many people seemed not to know or care that there were ways in which Obama was only doing the same things that George Bush and other prior presidents had... and ways in which Obama's views were no different from those of Republican candidates. For instance, I'd ask people complaining about the national debt, do you understand that none of the candidates except Ron Paul have plans to reduce the debt? That all the rest are only proposing a decrease in the rate of increase? That is, they also intend to increase our debt? The reply: anyone but Obama.

I do not like President Obama, and I think he *is* hell bent on bringing America down as a sovereign nation; but, what's wrong in this country didn't start with his administration, and things will only continue to get worse until we *do* start looking at the whole system. P.S. Ben Carson did acknowledge that it wasn't just Obama.

i believe that's what Dr Carson is saying

he said we can't blame just one person. He said its been going on for a while.

Since many here don't watch tv -

I'd like to bring to the attention that there was a (tv)movie made about his life called "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story" which starred Cuba Gooding Jr.

It's on netflix.

Ah man 8:11

I really like this guy, I think I would vote for him. Great speech Dr. Carson!

I liked most of what I heard.

Good for you Dr Carson. Would be nice to have a couple of doctors in the white house. ;)

Or maybe a few,

including those in cabinet positions, such as maybe Secretary of the Treasury?

just worried about his foreign policy

and of course his stance on the 2nd amendmet

Yes, me too.

After a friend sent me an e-mail just about calling the guy America's savior, I listened to his speech. I sent back a note saying that I liked what I heard, but that the jury was out until I knew his views about... That was followed by a list of ISSUES. I told him rhetoric wasn't going to cut it. I got back a note: "So there you go again, ruining my microscopic, miniscule little tiny ray of hope." He went on to say we'd never again have a gov't with everything on my "wish list" (e.g., re foreign policy, auditing the FED, Constitutional rights, or the national debt), as the monster had grown too big. Um, in the last election there was *one* candidate who knew how to tame the beast. And he awakened many who'll no longer settle for more of the same, as Romney would have represented. The note ended: "What was I thinking, a momentary lapse back to hope and optimism. Have a blessed weekend. You kill joy you." In any event, in one capacity or another, I hope to yet see Dr. Ron Paul back in Washington.

Tell your friend

False hope is no hope. Better to have eyes open, than blindly believing you've found yet another savior.

Why do we seek the perfect person to rule over us? We should realize that person is in the mirror.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

There are some people in this country...

who, after you hear them speak, you KNOW they are the right people to be speaking for Americans and for America's good and prosperous future. Dr. Ron Paul was such a man.

Dr. Ben Carson is another.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Dr. Carson would be a man I would SUPPORT whole-heartedly if he sought the presidency (just as much as I did for Dr. Ron Paul).

This man "gets" it and is one of us, an American!

Too Soon For Me

I like what I've heard from Ben Carson so far and he certainly seems to be a man of great character. In terms of his overall, complete political philosophy, however, there is still too much unknown for me. I'm not ready to jump on board for Carson, but I will be listening going forward.

If nothing else, I would love to see him as the Secretary of Health and Human Services under a President Rand Paul. He could help dismantle the government healthcare bureaucracy.
