Please Explain Donald Trump and Ben Carson

I’ve been interested in politics recently, both Canadian and American. Overall, it’s been very interesting.

On the Canadian side, we’ve got a new Prime Minister and government with a cabinet that seems well-chosen. I’m happy with how the Canadian government is going at the moment.

On the American side, the Democrats seem sane. However, it’s the Republican side that has me scratching my head. What the hell is up with Donald Trump and Ben Carson?

Donald Trump is edging into fascist territory with his recent policies. Ben Carson has been found less than truthful and incredibly ignorant about biological science, even though he’s a neurosurgeon. So, there’s one guy who’s blatantly trying to emulate the Nazis and one guy who’s making me wonder how he ever became a doctor.

Americans, can you please explain these two men to me? Why are they getting so much support? How in the world can Trump be the leader in the Republican Presidential nomination race? I really have to question the intelligence of Republican supporters.

If you’re a Republican, and offended by this post, please tell me in an intelligible and intelligent way why you’re offended. People with common sense would like to know.

Which Fantasy Series Should I Try?

I’m a fan of fantasy novel series. I enjoy going back into worlds that I’ve discovered before, and exploring it more. I’ve read parts of several series, including Shannara, The Wheel of Time, A Song of Ice and Fire, Malazan, and so on. But I always enjoy a new world to explore.

So, I have a poll for you. Please vote for the series you think I should read, and let me know why you chose that in the comments below. This is a long list, and you can vote for multiple series.

 

Thanks for voting! I’ll definitely use the results to help decide on what I should buy.
