Newsmax: On your support, I know you explained why you're supporting him, but it was a 180 degree turnaround, for the most part. I mean, he said some nasty things about you. How do you reconcile that?"
Ben Carson: Ah... Politics. You know, the politics of personal destruction. You know, that's nothing new. That’s been going around for a long period of time.
But also I have to look at what is practical. I didn’t see a path for Kasich, who I like, or for Rubio, who I like.
As far as Cruz is concerned I don’t think that he’s going to be able to draw independents and Democrats. Unless he has some kind of miraculous change. So I have to look at what is practical and at what is going to save this country and the American dream for the next generation.
Is there another scenario that I would have preferred?
Yes. But that scenario isn’t available.
Newsmax: OK. With one of the other candidates you mean?
Settle for less just to beat the Dems? Do you agree?
Trump is a totally unacceptable candidate for those of us on the left. I can only hope that his abrasive campaign will scare away independents.
The danger of a Trump win is enhanced with Ms. Clinton as the nominee for the Democrats.
None for you as you are a supporter of his. I don't like conservative, populist rightwing politics and politicians.
I don't trust them nor Trump to not break the clock by attempting to turn it back.
Okey, so no 'danger'.... Just that you don't like that idea of turning the clock back next fall?
I don't think we'd go back 100 years when the mayor would knock on the doors of people who were involved in presidential election voter fraud and call them out for a dual. That was when men were manly men, now we have feminist-men. (no insult to manly-men like Trump intended) But, that might no be a bad idea, the fraud would end quickly in these progressive days.
Are you truly a nineteenth century lady?
Trump is your idea of a 'manly man', he just talks without never having to live without the silver spoon in his mouth? Courage and testosterone is more than just running your mouth.
That is, of course, if he wins, which is still far from being certain.
And you would have to go back about 200 years for the dueling tradition.
I thought you might get a kick out the humor.
I'm not worried about Trump winning. He has a smart plan.
Don't be fooled by the dumb-schmuck act, its just rhetoric.
He is well aware of the tricks of politics and their money-men.
Unlike Bathhouse Barry(BHO), Ted Cruz openly admits his father was not an American when Ted was born IN CANADA. WHY isn't birther-Trump forcing this guy to forge a long-form Birth Certificate?
Probably because you don't need to be born inside US borders to be a "natural born citizen". Nor do you need both parents to be citizens.
The District of Columbia is not a part of the United States. DC is a United States Incorporation (a corporate government) that is controlled by thirteen wealthy banking families, (the Rothschilds, etc.) and the Federal Reserve. A corporation simply put, makes its own rules. Power corrupts.
Ah, Trumpeters almost make me hope for a Trump presidency, just so I can watch them squirm when their candidate's dumb-schmuck act turns out to be real, and they're twisting themselves in knots trying to defend his latest insane rant or clownish foreign policy faux-pas.
It's just a passing fantasy, though.
I just hope & pray birther President Trump will appoint Ben Carson Surgeon General, put that lesbian, commie, witch Hillary behind bars and put Bathhouse Barry in front of a firing squad.
Hi Sgt., I hope you are busy fishing these days or something else really cool. Haven't seen you around the forums much. God bless!
Oh, here's is a great compilation of Hillary lying.
Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes straight.
She is one sick pathological liar.
She is totally untrustworthy.
No one should vote for Hillary!

If you have time to check out this brutal 13-minute video that catches every major lie Clinton has uttered throughout her political career, I suggest you do. It’s painful. It’s annoying. And it totally shows her as one of the most inauthentic figures in American politics.

Things change quickly in political dog-years.
When it comes to providing government records the public is asking to see, the Obama administration is having a hard time finding them.

O’Keefe went undercover at the DNC as a Hillary supporter that wants to break the glass ceiling, and Democrats were outraged with hate. I don't blame them one bit. You won't see anything like this on MSM, they are careful not to paint Hillary as the candidate people hate! ...

I've corresponded and chatted with a number of Americans who think the 9/11 Truth movement has been thoroughly "debunked." But when pressed for details on the source of their belief, they can't provide any. One gentleman said that he didn't have time to investigate such things. My big...

I was not a Ben Carson cheerleader. I liked what I saw, but things were just starting.Now, I think his recent revelations about his violent actions when he was a kid have doomed him. Not necessarily because of the actions he discussed, (at least for me), but because it appears obvious that it is...

Trump is not your normal candidate nor is he running a normal campaign. I know the word normal is relative, but in the world of campaigns, it is based on previous campaigns that had some sense of being normal with decorum and civility. He has lied and insulted all of his opponents...
