A pity that Ben Carson is not considered. He doesn’t have the flair of Trump or the rhetoric of Cruz. Carson is quiet, but I believe extremely capable. He thinks carefully, plans, and then executes; and not by himself, but with cooperation of different disciplines. His success may be known for the medical miracles, but he also is a shrewd business man. He and Candy formed a foundation that has been successful for several years. Many foundations fail and fold up for lack of funds or mismanagement. Ben is not for touting his expertise and accomplishments, but if one considers the determination and diplomacy to get his patients TO the hospital, the teams to work with him, the hospital to agree to his plans, you get a picture of a quiet but very effective man.
A hospital is like this nation in some ways. Every discipline is protective of it’s territory, it’s funding, and it’s laudatory gains. Yet Ben got them all to work together for the good welfare of the patient. America is the patient now, and Ben Carson CAN bring the two parties together for the good welfare of America. Too bad most Americans are fascinated by verbosity and grandiosity, and fail to notice the quiet man who speaks little and softly, and can do what needs to be done with thoughtful consideration of equal justice, consequences, and outcomes….he thinks it through to the end.
I’m tired of the same old GOP inept politician’s. They’ve been compromising with these Communist’s in power for 8 years and we’re on the brink of financial ruin, an unemployment check society and a military so weakened we are again vulnerable to attack from inside and outside our nation…of all the choices Trump is the best choice. Time for a Citizen President to put the People back in Charge ! Glen this house and send a strong message to ALL Political Parties, “You’re FIRED !”

Although I appreciate all the attention that Trump has brought to the debates, I believe he would be a train wreck as our President. What we NEED is someone who can effectively articulate the Conservative position to the country. Trump is not that guy. I am concerned about a guy, who has no filter between his brain and his mouth, who recently dropped an F-bomb in front of a crowd, which included children. I am concerned about a guy, who behaves like a petulant child by calling people names and walking out of a debate, because he couldn’t control the moderators. I am concerned about a guy, who appears to have become a Conservative for this election. What will he be a year from now? Who knows….
Fortunately, we have several good candidates this year, so we won’t find ourselves selecting from the lesser of two evils. I could support Cruz, Kasich, Rubio and even Bush, before I would make the blind leap of faith required to vote for Trump.
Keep in mind, Trump is great at marketing. All good con-men are also great at marketing. Does that make Trump a con-man? I don’t know, but I’m not willing to risk the next four years of our country’s well being to find out.
Trump has captured everyone’s attention, by telling us what we want to hear and being politically incorrect in his delivery. We’re all saying, “WOW, that’s what I was thinking too.” Unfortunately, Trump has been dealing in grand sweeping generalities and he’s been short on specifics. When pressed, he usually replies, “I’m Trump. I do great things and everybody loves me.” I’m afraid, that’s not enough to satisfy me.
The scariest thing I recall him saying, was how he was going to deal with China. His intent is to use tariffs to level the playing field. Sadly, the last time the U.S got heavily into using tariffs was in 1928. How did that work out for us. Obama has showed us many examples of the Law of Unintended Consequences and I’d prefer that Trump didn’t get the opportunity to expand our knowledge in that area. I’m just not buying what he’s selling.

Marco Rubio has a clear vision of what our country is facing. He will be leading our Children & Grandchildren with strong leadership.
I hope this ends Jeb Bush and he gets out ! So sick of the Bush. We need Trump he is no nonsense . Cruz lies and lost respect for him he cheated in Iowa.

Donald Trump for a real president!

Donald Trump is a vulgar, greedy, compromising individual without character or real leadership. Yes, he probably can buy a lot of people to agreements, but that is bribery. The Mexican President said he wouldn’t pay one cent toward the wall Donald promises.
Donald Trump is the only one to “Make America Great Again.” All the others are professional politicians and liars. They will owe so much to their donors and Super Pacs to payback the millions they have invested. Plus we need a REAL American.

I hope Sen. Cruz wins..he is the only candidate that will save this country. A true conservative and constitutionalist

Ted Cruz is an insider. He is NOT a conservative. Read his S 306.
With Trump as President we will rise up and restore America’s promise, honor the Constitution, and re-establish our leadership in the world.

Mr Donald Trump will be our next president of U.S. of America. We need to get our American country back to the beginning and to make our American country great or the greatest. I hope that Mr Trump will be in the white house very soon.
Yes, our American country are going to sell off to other countries. If American people don’t stand up for your American country, we are heading for big problem and a lot of American people are going to be hurt. We can not have Hillary Clinton and or Obama clubs destroy our American country. They are liars and very bad people.
“I think if you could secure the border, you would get a rush, you would get a national consensus to be generous and humane and legalize the overwhelming majority of those already here. But you have to show Americans, the American people that this is the last time it’s going to happen.” — Charles Krauthammer
President-elect Donald Trump has attracted controversy due to conversations with Pakistani and Taiwanese leaders. Should he wait until after inauguration to talk with foreign leaders? Vote in our CBC reader poll!
“It’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama can reach out to a murdering dictator in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from a democratically elected leader in Taiwan and it’s become something of a controversy.” — Mike Pence
