Ben Carson

Post by B.M. Barrelcooker » Sun Aug 09, 2015 10:21 am

I really like his demeanor and insight.

Just curious .....what are thoughts on him?

He may not be libertarian enough for me but I can't help but like and respect him. I do believe that he has so much more to offer than " The Don".

I don't know what that means .

I know he isn't a career politician and I like him.

I think he brings a lot to the table.

Ouch man... sorry. That was low and well below the belt.

I'll say this about Ben Carson, which I know little about. He is no Bernie Sanders.

Why don't you tell us what he brings to the table. I know it's not a bong or a bag of herb.

I think he brings a lot of common sense. He is level headed and very articulate.
I like his ability to take a stand without demonizing those that don't disagree.

I'd like to hear more about him and from him.

I like him a lot for the same reasons. His life and solutions are rooted in reality where most politicians are not (see Bernie Sanders, etc). He's a quality guy who's made the world a better place by his presence.

I know he couldn't or wouldn't answer the question - does religion trump the constitution.

Anyone remember the outrage at JFK because the Pope was going to rule America?

Well, it sounds like he's likable.

I'd vote for Marilyn (Manson).
