  • Carly Fiorina has the potential to be a great leader

    One reason I like Fiorina is because of Fiorinas past comments on Islam in the aftermath of 9/11... To me Fiorina was saying it right, Fiorina was basically saying that AQ is a gang of criminals where as Islam is beautiful.

    SEPTEMBER 26, 2001

    There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

    It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

    One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization’s commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

    And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

    Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

    When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

    While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

    Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.

    And perhaps we can learn a lesson from his example: It was leadership based on meritocracy, not inheritance. It was leadership that harnessed the full capabilities of a very diverse population–that included Christianity, Islamic, and Jewish traditions.

    During Tue nights debate Carly Fiorina talked about supporting our "Arab Muslim allies" in the ME. Fiorina said that the Arab Muslims are fighting ISIL and want to step up the fight against ISIL but that they need the help of the USA...That is a excellent thing for Fiorina to say as it presents a challenge to the few folks around the world who complain that Muslims dont want to fight ISIL. I previously suggested that Trump is the GOPs best bet, but I can not support Trump after realizing that Trump wants to deport millions of people from the USA...Now many folks here probably remember the case of Elián González, the young baby Gonzalez was shown crying while being taken away from his home by an armed federal agent. So folks just imagine the sight of seeing millions of people forcibly taken from there homes.. I had previously thought that media outlets were blowing Trumps views out of proportion..but on Tue night Trump went and talked about his deportation plans. I can not support Trump, Trump also fumbled the ball IMO with his comment on the wall and how trump suggested the wall works for Israel.
