I realize this sounds like I'm suggesting we cross reptiles with mammals, but I honestly think a Sanders Carson presidency would be unlike any other mix of candidates. Obviously this won't happen so don't take it too seriously.

Anyways! Conflicting ideologies are meant to exist! We are meant to debate, discuss, collaborate, compromise, etc and I think if both men put their best foot forward, we'd have a dynamic duo.

Carson wants to limit things like congressional terms and government power, Sanders wants to limit corporate power and banker influence - I honestly think such a team, with enough backing them could take on the biggest beasts, such as the federal reserve.

Sanders would desire socialistic implementation of Healthcare especially, Carson was a doctor and could help perfect such a model, ensuring government incompetence doesn't impede our ability to receive the best care.

Sanders leans towards legislated equality, while Carson would likely have more capitalistic roots - mix them together, and you have a free market capitalistic system that could efficiently take care of the poor and helpless - mix them together and college could be profitable and affordable. I honestly think the two together would be stronger as a team than any individual, if they thought about how to move forward in the best way.

A smaller, more efficient government with term limits, illegalize corporate influence of pacs and the like, break up corrupt banking, and come to agreements on how to best tax and run a nation, with the free market being kept in mind while ensuring some quality of life, even if temporarily, to those that cannot reach the goal of providing for themselves.

Oh, also Sanders as president as he would more accurately represent liberal issues - there's no need to move backwards on things like gay marriage, abortion, etc. I believe two honest, good men could put aside such differences and seek out an America that's best for the people.

Agree with me, disagree with me - I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry, but if Carson has taught me anything, he's taught me that brain surgeons are a whole lot dumber than I ever would have imagined.

There are plenty of good people for Bernie to choose from for his vice presidential pick and IMO, none of them are republicans.

I believe you're right...they are two honest good men.
Unfortunately, there is too much close-mindedness and intolerance from supporters to even entertain a mixed ticket.
Most of that intolerance comes from the left; I know, because I recently posted a thread very similar to yours.

I don't know if I would call trump a moral and good man, personally. But that's not to say I'm some ultimate judge of persons - the two men I bring up seem to have very good moral character, ethics, and the like.

Trump Sanders definitely would be middle fingers to anyone that tried to bully them though

It's an interesting thought. ...and one that might even work. However...and it's a great big honkin' however.

The entrenched interests in the Democratic party that would never, not in a million years, allow a Republican onto their Presidential ticket.

The other half of the big honkin' however is the GOP. They don't want one of their big guns, not the biggest obviously, but still a important figure...on the Democratic ticket, either.

Now if Carson were to repudiate the GOP? I could see the Democratic party allowing it, as a thumb in the eye to the GOP. But it's unlikely to ever happen. Good idea or no.

Right, I never expect it would happen.. I honestly do believe the two combined could figure out solutions for the best America, though, if they worked together for such a cause.

I should have been clearer, sorry.

I, too, think it could work. It's certainly interesting.

O.O

Umm... in this political climate, a Presidential candidate would have to be a complete idiot to choose someone from a rival party to be his/her running mate. 4 American Presidents have already been assassinated while in office (Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and JFK), and several more have been shot while in office (including Teddy Roosevelt and Reagan).

I wouldn't trust either party if it could seize the Presidency with a single shot. In fact, that's one reason some presidential candidates literally choose a crazier and/or more radical person for their VP; to make an assassination attempt undesirable to their opponents. Going by that frame of thought, Bernie would choose an actual communist as a VP so his opponents would be too scared to assassinate him. (Note: There are plenty of other theories on how to pick a VP, like picking someone who nullifies your weaknesses or picking someone who's attractive to skeptics in your own party.)

If we want bipartisanship, we can always start in Congress lol. Putting opponents in your Cabinet happens too, though I think it's pretty stupid. I also can't help noticing it's always the Repubs who want the Left to do this, but not the other way around. How many right wing candidates openly suggest they'll put socialists, progressives, and Black Lives Matter activists in their administrations?

They could still work together without Carson being his VP. Carson could always be an advisor or an ambassador for a Bernie administration. (Edit) But the VP is next in line for the Presidency and all of its power. That's simply too risky.

Carson is not politically smart so no thank you.

Bernie threatens my retirement and personal wealth more than anyone else on either side of the aisle. I would not support a ticket with that man on it, though he seems honest, if misguided.

Hence Carson to be his vice.

The two mixed is closer to libertarian than any other candidates, just my opinion.

Hillary Cruz would be the furthest away from freedom we could get.

In a way maybe he'll do fine if he just snooze his way through the office of Veep, as he did throughout his entire campaign.

Carson does not believe in socialism unless I totally misread the man in his time running. It would completely throw me for a loop to see him ever anywhere near a ticket with a socialist.

Yep , 2 level headed well spoken individuals that do not feel the need to scream , shout , and promote hate like all the rest. Also , they seem more "hip" to the issues faced by the younger generation Ultimate duo. I concur
