We can only hope that someone, if not Ben, will be elected that has a brain. It has got so bad, I think we should clean out the whole bunch, every two years. Maybe if they knew they would not be there forever they might do something right. I don't know.

I have to agree with you on that. No one in office anymore for 40 or more years, it gets ridiculous.

He is super smart and not a politician so he would be a good President I do think. I'm tired of all of the career politicians.

I like that we have someone intelligent like a neurosurgeon running for office, opposing Trump, who is an absolute joke in my opinion. Unfortunately Carson and my views differ too much for me to vote for him. I'll probably choose the third party approach, or rather, cast my vote to a third party member and pray that they at least get 5% of the votes so that they can be funded federally as a campaign for 2020. I think that would be the most important thing to do, so that we can get more parties running for election each term. Imagine being able to choose between five different parties and having more options for who's going to lead our country, as opposed to the divided and strict two-party system we unfortunately ended up with. George Washington warned us about this!

I like the idea of America having a serious and sober-minded leader who will play an active and even influential role on the national level and the world stage; will improve quality of life, keep the peace, and protect our freedom. The political party is neither here nor there with me because, in the end, we are all Americans. However, from a historical standpoint, there was at one time more than two political parties and that was a good thing. (My opinion.) But I always like to remember the year when two candidates aspired to the presidency and they were not linked to any political party! What? No political party? Can they do that? Of course they can! This is America! Thanks for your insights.

@cmoneyspinner Honestly, in a few years I feel confident that we'll be able to break away from the two-party system all together. More and more voters are becoming aware of the fact that their voices can be heard louder if they have different parties running. Opening up more parties to be able to vote for gives all Americans even more equal representation, in my opinion.

Dr. Ben Carson is an honorable man. His character is above and beyond reproach. Mr. Trump is wise to surround himself by men such as Dr. Ben Carson, Trump's VP Mike Pence, For. Gov. Mike Huckabee and several more.

Surrounding yourself with wise counsel is one thing. Listening to wise counsel is another. I'm just bracing myself for 2017. No matter who ends up in the White House, I'm not leaving the country.
