    Did Patrick Henry say, "Give me liberty, or give me death?"  If so... why?

    Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are almost exactly the same.  Same can be said for most DC politicians regardless on what side of the isle they reside.  I give Bernie credit for standing firm to what he believes as he is among the exceptions and not the rule.  Hillary?  Not so much.

    Google will do just fine.
    If you like, try this link.  Likely a bit much for your tastes (not many pictures or snarky memes), but nontheless there for your perusal if you actually care to know what you're talking about:

    Carter was definitely more experienced in politics, but he was not a career politician.  He actually accomplished something prior to getting into politics.  Our short history is riddled with politicians first serving as war heroes, businessmen, more recently career politicians, lawyers, etc.  Thomas Jefferson may have been the closest to Carter with respect to an understanding of scientific fields of study where they were able to actually apply what they knew with a high degree of expertise.  Aside from that, no other presidents come to mind that were that intellectual.

    I suggest you look to her voting record and current rate of wages she has for her female staff.  Like most politicians, what they say and do are often miles apart.

    Serious question... what views?

    I liken a vote for Ben Carson to a vote for Jimmy Carter.  Two very intelligent individuals, not career politicians, high moral character, likely not good leadership skillset.

    While I am not inclined to believe that any politician will come out squeaky clean (especially in DC), the degrees of difference stand on its face with respect to how far Hillary has gone with her outright deceipt.  It's pretty clear that she is a pathological liar when it comes to protecting her own self-interests.  I would compare Carson to Carter with respect to integrity before I compare him to Clinton.

    Pretty much anything by Doc Holiday in Tombstone:
    Doc Holliday: Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.
    Take your pick of any from Aliens
    Take your pick of several from Serenity
    Anything by Oliver Platt in Diggstown
    Tons of stuff from The Long Kiss Goodnight, but this hit me sideways:
    Nathan: Alice, please. Your dog, Alice. It and my appetite are mutually exclusive.
    Alice: Well, what's wrong with the dog?
    Nathan: Simple. He's been licking his asshole for the last three straight hours. I submit to you that there is nothing there worth more than an hour's attention. I should think that whatever he is attempting to dislodge is either gone for good, or there to stay. Wouldn't you agree?

    When you understand this, I expect it will be too late

    Yet again... I point you to look at the progression of consistent events.  These things didn't always go sideways right away.  They merely set up the variables to allow it to happen.  If you're banking on the good nature of bureaucrats, aristocrats, and political figures to endure, then I've got nothing for you.

    I will address more as I am able later today.  I appreciate the time you took in your response.  My pervasive thought is our disparate opinions regarding as to what socialism is.  Insurance used to be a choice for better or worse.  With the advent of mandating care (taking away choice) in the absence of accepting consequences of responsibility, the socialism part has kicked in.. meaning, we no longer have that freedom of choice as a central governing body is assuming that role now.
    Like many tyrannies, it can hold a lot of good things... for a while.  However, the infrastructure remains in place to be exploited by political opportunists and outright sociopaths as future heads assume their roles.
