Carson states that he used to be a flaming liberal, then he speaks of listening to Ronald Reagan and decided he made sense. Yet, he did not say when he changed his stance on being a flaming liberal in his actions. He also did not speak of the fact that he did not register to vote until he considered to maybe run for some sort of public office in 2001. Nor did he mention that he never voted for anyone in the primaries and only voted in general elections of 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. I am sure that due to his extreme stance on minorities that he was a proud voter of Obama. Wonder when someone will ask him?
Although Carson plays a very sly game of vague opinions and tries hard to speak soft and in broad generalities, there must be someone out there that can pin him down for a direct answer on the pertinent questions. The hard ones like why did it take so long for his conservative self, who was influenced by Ronald Reagan, so long to become a conservative? As he did not change his stance on key conservative issues until he registered as a Republican 6 months prior to his announcement that he was running for president. And why did he wait until he was running for president on the GOP ticket before he changed his views on the second amendment (he was for gun control), and his pro choice abortion view, his pro sustainable development agenda 21, and his social justice views against the white advantage? He also thought it would be good to have a 25% tax on all sporting events. These issues were reported as facts by the Independence Party of Florida of which he was a part of until 6 month prior to running for president.
So where he once was a flaming liberal, all that changed when he decided to run for the oval office. Now I ask you, could you change your core conservative beliefs in such a short length of time to run on a Democratic ticket?
Do you believe Carson would give up his life work of advocating divisive racial issues to run on a GOP ticket? Or do you think there is still a flicker of that liberal flame left inside?
I know what I access here and it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure this one out. But, it just might take one to pull it off.
