TOT-please explain your concept or reasons for casting a vote for Dr. Ben. Please make sure your reasons aren't social values. I want to know what experience he has to lead the country in all areas of governing. Thanks for your answers in advance.
I listened to his speech at the national prayer breakfast a little over a year ago and I was extremely impressed with his positions especially with his reasoning about the ten per cent.
Later a friend gave me a copy of his book entitled God bless America.
I don't care if he has zero experience in governing (that's probably a plus) he is self sustaining and is wealthy enough that he would perhaps be able to resist using the office for personal gain.
He came from a childhood in the depths of struggle and want.
He read books and acquired a wonderful education.
He lifted himself up and made something of himself.
He is successful and I believe him to be exceedingly GOD FEARING.
That is all I need to cast my vote for him and I will contribute a modest amount of money to the effort to get him to run and then get him elected.
Carson has said he is not a member of any political party. "If I were part of one, it would be called the 'Logic party', and it would be dedicated to commonsense approaches we all should be able to see." In his book America the Beautiful, Carson explained why he decided to get involved in politics: "I believe it is a very good idea for physicians, scientists, engineers, and others trained to make decisions based on facts and empirical data to get involved in the political arena and help guide our country." He also said, "… we [physicians] should be concerned not only about the health of individual patients, but also about the health of our entire society." Despite largely expressing conservative viewpoints, Carson has also expressed some views at odds with most
conservatives, such as supporting banning semi-automatic weapons in large
cities. He has also stated, "There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons."

PN you asked:
"I want to know what experience he has to lead the country in all areas of governing."
What experience did Obama have in governing before becoming President?
What experience did Obama have in sustaining a living for himself other than at the public trough"
Career politicians are causing the decline and destruction of this once great nation.
Thank you for reading the blog and for commenting on it.
Please click on RunBenRun.org and spend a half hour watching his speech.
If it doesn't move you I'm sorry. It brought me to tears.
I will watch the speech. However, you answered my question in your first response but decided to go off track in your later response with the Obama spill..Let's stay on track and address the Ben Carson issue. Thanks for sharing the videos.
This blog is about the office of President of the United States of America, the most powerful office in the world until a few years ago.
PN I don't want to irritate you because I want to engage in polite discussion.
Having said that I attempted to answer your question as well as I could.
I then asked you a question on the current holder of the office.
He was relatively unknown ten or twelve years ago.
I really don't know his history and I wish I did.
Please answer my question if you will.
Thanking you in advance.
TOT-I don't want to engage in negative discussion either so I wont go back and fourth about the POTUS today..
I don't blame him either.
If he and his followers come to an agreement to enter the race, I think he should run as a Democrat.
If he did so and was successful I personally believe he would still be good for the country and he would do right even as a Democrat.
