Well, those damn evil old white Republicans are at it again. Their two best candidates represent polar opposites, and Dr. Ben Carson, who is not a politician, is rising in approval.
Look, everyone on the right kind of likes Trump, but we all know he's not going to get the nomination. Dude's a clown car with some ideas that are phenomenally dead on target with the sentiment of many people. I'm OK, for example, with taking a chunk out of the budget and starting mass deportations- although I think it would be more effective to make it a felony to hire an illegal for any work, and let them choose to repatriate on their own.
No, I like Ben Carson for his story, his moral stance, and demeanor, which is a fuck load already more presidential than the sucking chest wound of a leader that is currently in the oval office.
I need to see how Dr. Carson will handle foreign policy, who he will surround himself with, and how he'll handle military issues. I think, like most conservatives, that many of us are holding our breath and hoping it works out.
I've got to say, and maybe I'm being a fanboi here, but I'm seeing shades of Ronald Reagan.
Stand firm, ye boys of Maine
