Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Ben Carson Is Not The Candidate You Are Looking For

Ben Carson has some attribute that conservatives find appealing.  I just can't seem to put my finger on what it might be...

He's not a politician, he's a very successful surgeon.

But his ideas are frequently bonkers.

He wants to destroy the checks and balances in the Constitution.  All while venerating the Constitution, or rather the Second Amendment.

He wants to get rid of the IRS, because that will work.

He wants to cut taxes and balance the budget, because fuck math.

Sometimes, it's helpful to listen to what politicians actually say.  And what this guy says is batshit crazy.
