Nothing wrong with being a Seventh Day Adventist.

the only democrat worth voting for was Webb

the far left liberal/socialist of sanders or hillary are NOT what the american public needs


carson has some good things to say, but I'd rather have one of the other conservative candidate be POTUS

Muslim beliefs are to destroy you and anyone who does not submit to Sharia law . They hate gays and would have them on the preferred list to destroy.

No government has for the good of liberty, and a republic believes in bedroom control and body control and not at a federal level. IE see the constitution.

Because of that

I will vote Rand Paul.

Rand Paul is for the flat tax, if you make under the poverty line you dont have to file.
Everyone else 14.5% which is everyone, no loop holes. You can still deduct yourself and children and that is it nothing else.

The more you make the more you will pay but it will always be 14.5% of your income.
I am sure Rand would prefer to get rid of the income tax but we have a budget issue and has to fund many things.

Federal department of education gone,
IRS gone
Department of interer gone

Less money for government military and less more for the domestic programs. All will be cut to balance a budget.
Many of the foreign aid is GONE. You want SS and medicare that needs to go.
You want welfare to continue you have to cut stupid programs and pork in the budget. Like an example is a study on Japanese birds more sexually active on cocaine. This is important over grandmom getting her meds.
NO NSA spying, no secret programs, no control of washington from corporations.
Medicare is not cut, SS is not cut, He balances the budget in 5 years.
Those in washington who dont have courage to stand up to the system have no business in washington.

CUT all that and the Mexican cartels will own our ---- if people only knew--

you can be all you want to be!!- but how will you rule over the rest who do NOT follow your legalistic views? They do not drink or smoke- many do not watch TV or go to movies, and the women, well we go back to wearing tight bras- and a white slip no way Jose

It's interesting that Carson, a man with no experience in government, leads so many polls of the same righties who've been vilifying Obama for over 6 years because of his lack of experience. Shows just how lost the right truly is.

well...that goes to show how the left NEVER ACTUALLY LISTENS


let's compare

obama...NO business experience...no management experience...no executive experience

what does obama have experience in ...POLITICS as a ''community organizer''


carson (and trump are carly)...experience is running a business...experience in managing...executive level experience

what does carson (along with trump and carly) not have...experince in the proffessional liar occupation of politics




the left truly is lost

I will vote Rand Paul.
I don't even understand why we go through this every cycle.

Can anyone name a single year out front runner who actually got the nomination?

Just off the top of my head

Front Runner(s); Nominated
Hillary Clinton; Obama
Ted Kennedy, Carter
Hart; GWB
Tsongas; Slick Willy (DNC lineup called "the seven dwarves")
Santorum and Perry and Cain; Romney

It is ridiculous to even consider that Trump or Carson will be around in 10 months.

Trump is a side show, and his numbers are slipping just as anyone with a brain knew they would. Wanna bet he makes an excuse for going back on his promise and hands Clinton the Presidency? I believe this entire soap opera is being orchestrated to insure she is crowned. Trump may not be beholding to special interest? HE HIMSELF IS A FRKKIN SPECIAL INTEREST!!!! Are people REALLY this stupid?


I too am behind Paul. He is the closest thing to a third party Libertarian that we have.

I'll settle for Rubio, Cruz, or Kasich, and even Fiorina, if push comes to shove. They would all be so much better than Clinton or Sanders. If Bush is nominated, I'll either do a write in, or not vote at all for the first time in my life.

Having grown up very poor he has more of a grasp on what poor people need than any of the others.
Do you not see how these two statements are mutually exclusive?
