Hi 2016 election poll #4769029
Brainii says2015-09-02T23:14:50.5923284Z
@triangle.128k :) I couldn't find any that were very specific....
Oreo222 says2015-09-02T23:47:04.2724145Z
How about none of them.
Heterodox says2015-09-02T23:56:21.8043884Z
How about the one you feel least inclined to smack with a 2x4.
Midnight1131 says2015-09-02T23:56:45.0953377Z
Muttl, that's a terrible reason. You admit that Ben Carson has no political experience [and he's demonstrated his lack of knowledge on many issues repeatedly] but we should vote for him because he's a neuroscientist??? In that case we should all vote for Rand Paul, because it's much harder to land a job as an ophthalmologist than a neuroscientist.
Muttl200 says2015-09-03T00:17:20.7568840Z
@Midnight1131 Thats not the only reason I am voting for him, I assume you know that though.. And I do admittedly find his lack of political experience to be one of the big downsides to him.
Midnight1131 says2015-09-03T00:27:46.3276686Z
@Muttl, what are the other reasons?
Muttl200 says2015-09-03T00:45:41.3371733Z
@Midnight1131 I like what he had to say about the police shootings at the GOP Debate. Hes supports repealing Obomacare. I somewhat agree with his stance on immigration. I agree with his stance on national security. Though there are some things I disagree with, like his pro-life choice and his stance on gay marriage.
