The most class and integrity plus intelligence!

Carson is a class act

Ben Carson has demonstrated integrity, charm, wit and a willingness to learn and yet stick to his principles. As such, he is definitely in the cross-hairs of the Democrat and Republican establishments because he represents what could be their worst fears! In addition, attacking him will not be a winning proposition being that he is smarter than most of the clowns attacking him and a very strong and articulate adversary!

Carson's CRS...

Can't Remember S---
Can't Remember Supporters - even after multiple encounters
Can't Remember Stories - can't keep the line straight, especially on MannaTech

Add generally naive, and you have a nice guy who had 15 minutes of fame, sold his good name for profit, and can't quite grasp what to do with the hubcap now he's caught up to it!

Remove the non-candidates

At this point, it is clear that several of the people on the list are not entering the race, so there's no real point in keeping them as choices. Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Tom Mclintock, Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Mike Lee, Sam Brownback, Jeff Sessions & Allen West aren't candidates this time around, so at this point, they shouldn't continue to be included in the poll. Unless the idea is to show a "none of the above" vote (which could be included instead), they just clutter up the poll. Rick Perry & Scott Walker could be removed next month since they've dropped out (though technically, they're still in the race since they "suspended" their campaigns).

Trump's attraction

I've yet to hear a compelling case for Trump as the GOP nominee. In my view he is a fine "stalking horse" but nothing more. He'll expand the range and depth of issues that desperately need public examination. Issues which the establishment of the GOP is either too afraid to broach or, worse, are too afraid of hearing the answer from the voters as it runs contrary to their personal desires. One thing is for certain though, if Bush or Kaisch get the nominee they'll have a hard time convincing me that they are Republican.


Gatortrapper: Well put. Trump brings attention to a lot of issues..... but he just wants attention. He also can be bought. But he is much better than what we have now. If Rubio, Kasich or Bush get the nomination, we all need to write in our vote, we may have a landslide (see how Truman was elected)


I respectfully disagree with you that Trump can be bought. He is the only one, other than Cruz, that cannot be bought out of all candidates. He is funding his own campaign with HIS money, no lobbyists to pay off or large corporations if he is elected! He has spoken nothing but the truth no matter what the mainstream NWO media prints! He will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN if given the chance.



Donald Frump

*Everyone that voted for DT....should be forced to have him do a sleep over
at their house.

Donald Frump

If "Frump" comes to your house for a sleep over - then all the women in your house should be guarded...a man with a baseball bat might be a good guard.

Donald Trump

When I Listen To Donald Trump, and People Like Him, I'm Reminded of These Wise Words of Warning From The Lord God:
Proverbs 28:11 The Rich Man Is Wise In His Own Conceit; But The Poor That Hath Understanding (True Wisdom From The Lord God & His Holy Word) Searcheth (Examines & Proves) Him (Self-Righteous, Self-Wise Conceited Rich Person)Out!

2 Peter 2:10

I've had mixed feelings about Trump, but recently I've come to look at him in the light of 2 Peter 2:10:

"But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities."

Ted Cruz is the proven conservative in this race, who is also an honorable man of God.

2 Peter 2:10

I know this reply comes late, but YES!

ted cruz

Rand Paul is a true conservative and a Christian proven by his missionary work.

People are looking for a political solution

Most people are looking for a political solution and if our country does not look first to the Lord then all will have been in vain.

Most all of the candidates we have to choose from are Establishment Republicans.

I take note of what you have written and my discernment is that GOD has chosen Donald J Trump for some of the very reasons that you don't think he should be President.

Sometimes GOD confounds LOGIC !!

If he visited you maybe you'd

If he visited you maybe you'd end up being more enlightened. What's your alternative? Everyone else is in the same abysmal business as usual rut. If you don't think we need a sysmic shift from where we are now, which at least Trump addresses, then you are hopeless, not Trump.

Presidential straw poll

I welcome this new poll, but I believe a new poll should be made available after the first Presidential debate in August, and again after each debate. People do change their minds and need to be able to reflect that change in your poll until they cast their vote officially.

Richard, I consider you as the vanguard of all political pundits. Yours is the only such website that I follow closely.

Ben Carson

Hey, what's with all this grilling on Ben Carson?! I don't remember Obama being grilled this hard when he ran!!!! First shouldn't get special privileges. Carson is a wonderful man of God and I support him one HUNDRED PERCENT!!!
