Well there you have it. Cold, hard facts!
Then I guess I don’t understand what your asking.
Try again and I will too.
Well that’s true but it is about choosing the best candidate. If Carson’s goofy statements are a turn off and sign of worse things to come then don’t vote for him. He’s not my choice either but not because he believes in aliens or anything like that. I just don’t see him as a strong leader. I don’t like his views on some of issues facing our nation. My decisions about him have little to do with the goofy things he’s said but more on his statements about what he would do if he were elected. Hope that helps.
Can’t remember now if I responded to you or not. I have no problem with the vetting process - we need it to pick the best candidate for our side. There seems to have been today a concerted effort to take down Ben Carson by the drive-bys today. I guess my concern is that folks on this site seem too eager to believe what the MSM says about the candidates on our side. I’m not a Carson fan. If he lied about something in his past, I want to know about it. That’s important. I want to know about their character, about their policies and, if they have a history, does their past indicate that they do what they say or not. If someone believes something goofy, like about the pyramids, that may not have anything to do with how he would govern or about their policies. The media love to focus on these things (the goofy stuff or one’s religious beliefs) as if that makes the person out to come from Mars or something. The way people here just on this stuff as if it is gospel and a trusted source is a disturbing trend in my opinion.
We should be slow, not quick, to believe the output for the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. We should be more inclined to check the checkers especially when it comes to Republican candidates. Carson will stand or fall based more on what his policies will be if elected, whether he has been untruthful or is soft on illegal immigration or on defense - not on what happened in Egypt 3,000 yrs. ago. He’s not my pick but it concerns me when it seem that folks on this site jump on the claims of the leftwing media against a candidate that isn’t their first choice. That’s my rant and maybe I didn’t express it so well at the beginning.
Your experience is invaluable.
Which story should I believe?
That is my assertion. Who is “we” in “we have his quote...”?
Yes, saying wacky things is an alarm bell, but the media is made up of Democrat operatives with bylines. Be skeptical.
Wacky things being said by Trump are just one of the reasons I don’t believe he’s anything but a Trojan Horse.
Well if you weren’t such a follower you;d type in your questions to a search engine and read about a life filled with alternative action/Peter Principle, retraction, asinine statements an a while lot of other things that make is election an act of national suicide.
Because ultimately you will believe nothing of what you discover and go on demanding we waste time backing people wholly unsuited to lead us anyway.
Then we’re agreed. Trump and Carson are out. Let’s work for Cruz.
You ARE aware I have been a 100% Cruzer from the beginning right? And will remain so unless something on the order of live boys or dead girls turn up?
Just to clarify. I’m not riding Carson because I’m a Cruizer. I am riding Carson because the guy has serious issues that exclude him from conservatism, much less the Presidency.
When the press flat out lies they should be called on it. But the West Point/Pyramid arent that. The Pyramid thing he has believed for decades and the West point thing is turning into a battle of semantics. The problem with both issues is solidly the words Carson himself spoke.
Now on top of it, Carson has supposedly spoken the words that he backs TPP. Cruz is going to have some problems there but we will see how that plays out. With that said, Ted has solid conservatism to fall back on. And Carson has question marks, semantics, changed stories and confusion.
For me, all being equal, the choice is easy.
Neither do you know me yet you call me a twit. Me tinks you should apply your logic to yourself. BTW, I already washed for the day and am quite refreshed.
Let it go. Dr. Carson spoke at a church approximately 20yrs ago about his opinion on their use. That was the venue. Giving his opinion about a biblical account. It has nothing to do with his campaign. Can he uphold the COTUS? Does he love America? This is what should be discussed not pyrmids. The left makes issues when there aren’t any and ignore real issues. This is just plain old foolishness.
Be happy to. As soon as he stops trying to be president. Till then, not a change.
What the hell? Did it take you nine days to think of something? And suck it my comment stands, don’t call someone you don’t Know a bigot on the basis of a sarcastic comment, and when you do that, guess what twit is the least of what people like me will call you.
No, I have a life. Just logged in today. I sincerely hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I intend to relax and enjoy the rest of mine. Peace and good will to you.
