We're not talking about too many American voters. It's roughly 24 percent of Republican primary voters are seriously considering him. That's a pretty small number. It's probably the same people who believe ancient aliens shaped early human history.

Ben Carson is a "thought navigator" having the ability to cope, draw analytical perspectives, maintain a bal-
ance most of us find challenging. I would have questioned his comon sense early on finding myself even superior in at least THAT area.......wrong! This guy came out hatched from a genius egg right? He is so introspective and certainly is not one bit impacted by criticism unless as with any human pissed by the ridiculous attempts to dilute him. He simply is so remotely impacted by politically embedded Jack wagons he wants to do diligence in fixing America a country slipping quickly into third world status! We are living in the illusion we are fine a facade that will lead many of us unsurvivable .

He has to stand against Trump who is openly aggressive, combative and pushy.

As a softy, he cannot compete with Trump so he makes up a story of how scary he can be and attack people with knives. But as you can see now he grew out of it and he is now spiritually developed and not aggressive anymore. 'I overcame my vicious self. Just look of how 'low-energy' I am now'.

another bleaking sheep who believes he is a roaring lion.

There is just one lion in the field. If you compare it is too obvious.

Default Ben Carson's New Radio Ad

I was afraid it was going to be a long campaign season without Sarah around for comic relief. Happy to report, however, that Dr. Ben has stepped up to the plate with a radio ad that is going platinum, with a bullet! The cast of Saturday Night Live needs to send him a bottle of good wine or something. He's making all of their jobs simple and immensely profitable.

Cant... Stop... Laughing...

I think a good many posters to this board are more educated on general political issues than Carson. And that is indeed a scary thought.

Carson put all if his intellectual curiosity and learning into the narrow field of brain surgery leaving his understanding of the world and history back at a child's level. i.e. what he doesn't know---what the world accepts as fact like the use of the pyramids and basic knowledge about our Founding Fathers---he just makes up. He is scary unqualified to be our president!

Good point, one side lies to get the brain dead on their side to support them and so does the other. Just a reminder; two wrongs do not equal a right.

Default Yet another Carson lie - he was not accepted at Westpoint

Carson has backtracked on a claim in his book that he was accepted into West Point AND with a full scholarship. The bull**** keeps piling up.

Indeed, no. This is a thread about Ben Carson's consistent lies and fabrications. There are many other threads about Hillary.
