Ben Carson for Republican President Nomination

Donald Trump gave campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton when she ran for senator of New York.  He is not pro-life, he does not oppose gay marriage, he is disrespectful and uses unnecessarily inflammatory rhetoric.  A bridge player, I definitely say "NO TRUMP". 

Ted Cruz is not constitutionally eligible because he is not a natural born citizen.  His father was not a citizen of the U.S. at the time that he was born which is the definition of the term.  Cruz is also too much of a hawk on foreign policy. 

Marco Rubio is also not constitutionally eligible because he too is not a natural born citizen.  Though he was born in U.S., neither of his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.  If you vote for either Cruz or Rubio, then you are helping someone to usurp an office that they are not entitled to.  Also Rubio is very much in support of allowing the government read people’s email, listen in on people’s phone conservations and other invasions of privacy without the proper warrants.

John Kasich supports Common Core, Medicaid expansion, and when he was a congressman, he voted for taxpayer funding of abortions.  He quotes verses in the Bible about giving to the poor and says this means that the government should take care of the poor.  This is very bad theology.


Ben Carson is wishy-washy and talks out of both sides of his mouth.  He is not a constitutionalist.  However, he is constitutionally eligible to become president, his positions on the issues are reasonable in comparison with the other candidates and he seems to be respectful and honest.  At least there is hope for him that he might be a "Good Choice".
