Conservablogger Power Quote
"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

DR. BENJAMIN CARSON AND Dr. RAND PAUL: 2016 DREAM TEAM
Dr. Rand Paul stood and displayed his courage with a fiery, thirteen hour Senate filibuster, in which he demanded an administration answer to the question, "Can the President of the USA use a drone to kill a citizen, on U.S. soil, while sitting at a cafe' sipping coffee?"
Both men put on a display rarely seenin politics today, for whatever reason.
One thing I admire about each man is their courage. Something else I admire of the men is that they are self-assured. This remeinds me of the movie, "Tombstone", where wyatt Earp told his brother he shouldn't be sheriff because he wasn't a "deliberate man".
I share this quote becasue Carson and Paul are, indeed, 'deliberate' men. I think they are statesmen of historic sigfifcance and their recent actions illustrate this point.
If, as Rush says, the left fears Carson, it is because the left (particularly those in the mdia) don't actually believe their rhetoric - that conservatives are racists, sexists, bigots, homophobes etc- so they fear him because they know (to conservatives) the importance is placed on what Carson believes and says (his character) that matters, not the color of his skin.
If this Dream Team ticket were to come about, who should be President, who should be vice President?
The answer would be a complicated one; one I am not qualified to answer.
I detected a strong Christian faith ad resolve in Dr. Carson, and in Dr. Paul I detected a stron sense of constitutional respect. I love both. I think they would compliment each other in a way that Obama/Biden could never do.
I say this because neihr Bien nor Obama seem to be particularly vested in religion or the constitution. Theyactually seem to be hostil to it assaulting the each amendment several times.
So, to the powers that be: If you want to save the country, consider Carson/Paul 2016. This is a ticket America would love.
