Decent candidate? Viable alternative?

If he starts climbing in the polls, the liberals will crucify him.

Says good things about the Second Amendment and gun registration:


- The baton of freedom is in our hands. We must make absolutely sure that we will never let the right to keep & bear arms be removed from those who follow us in this nation. Let me make it absolutely clear that I am extremely pro-Second Amendment. I will never let anyone tamper with that right.

- The real reason that they put the 2nd Amendment there is recognizing that there could come a time when our government itself could go off the rail, and could try to dominate the people, and the people would need a mechanism of defense for themselves.

- I used to think guns needed to be registered, but if you register them they just come and find you and take your guns.

- I truly believe in Second Amendment rights. I would never advocate anything to interfere with Second Amendment rights; however, I do think we have to be intelligent.

But then goes off the rails:


...when asked whether people should be allowed to own "semi-automatic weapons," the doctor replied: "It depends on where you live. I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I'm afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it," Carson elaborated. However, if you live "out in the country somewhere by yourself" and want to own a semi-automatic weapon, he added, "I've no problem with that."

Of course, it's not clear to me that he knows the difference between a fully automatic and semi-automatic weapon.

Very smart. Well spoken. Personable. A hell of an impressive life and career. For a while, I've said that we need more engineers and physicians in DC and he really fits that bill, but it's too bad about his gun politics. Biometrics-locked "smart" guns? Sorry, that kind of kills any enthusiasm I'd have for the guy.

Link Posted: 9/3/2015 12:21:01 AM EDT
I recognize he is smart but to me he did not come across that way in the debates.  He did not seem that well informed or particularly gifted when it came to debate and speech.

I am not sure why he is getting decent poll numbers, I wonder it is no one wanting to say they would not vote for the black guy?

The urban vs rural gun thing from 2013 , it made no sense at all.  It's like a 5 year old was trying to formulate a gun policy.

fuck that guy with a rusty spoon.


When first asked about guns, he basically said if you're in a city, you don't need them, and don't need icky assault rifles.



then people freaked out, then he went silent,  then he came up with this gem:


“Early on, when I entered the political arena and I was asked the question about guns, I didn’t know at that time that you always start that off by saying how important the Second Amendment is and that you will never compromise that,” Carson said.

quoted in this article: Ben Carson: He hadn't learned to lie to you yet


basically saying : I hadn't learned to lie and say how important it is.......before I fuck you in the ass.


so if he's THAT blatant about pandering,  what ELSE is he just lying about?



that asshole. no thanks.

If he is the nominee and is running against Hitlery, he will be the losing candidate.  

Of course I believe pretty much every republican candidate may also become the losing candidate too.  I have never seen such a lackluster field of "candidates", on both sides.

Carson is a good surgeon I guess and I'm sure he has good morals. But he doesn't know when he's out of his league. I've seen him in debates he had no place in entering. His comments about the second amendment show ignorance, which isn't necessarily bad, but it's clear he'd bow to "common sense reform" garbage. He'd be better than Obama that's for sure, but I wouldn't say he'd be a good president.

Dr. Ben Carson, author of “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future,” argued that while Officer Darren Wilson did nothing wrong in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, police should be better trained in non-lethal force such as shooting aggressors in the legs on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”
View Quote

He specified “for instance, in a lot of places, police officers aren’t even allowed to go into the more dangerous areas by themselves. They’re always paired. Or you know, people use tasers, people learn how to shoot people in the legs to stop them from charging, things of that nature. And I seriously doubt that he’d been given that information.”

Good advice.

He's an evolution denier, which kills support from moderates or others looking for a quick test to weed out objectively irrational decision makers; a gun-rights hater, which kills support from the right; and denies the influence of biology on gays, which kills support from the left.

He does write mushy religious agitprop, which might attract a few people. He's not getting elected.
