Ben Carson? I Don’t Think So
The Republican Party will surely lose every presidential election, if the people who lean right in this country do not smarten up. It seems to me that there are many people, who refuse to vote for a candidate, because that candidate does not believe 100% in what they believe. A perfect example is the last election, Romney lost only because people stayed home because they didn’t think he was Conservative enough, those are the people I blame for Obama’s re-election. I truly believe that Romney would have been a great president, he was a successful Governor and a successful businessman, it also appears that he was right on many foreign issues as well.
Now I see many people are shouting BEN CARSON FOR PRESIDENT, to those people I say this, we got stuck with Obama because he gave a good speech, even though he had no qualifications and no experience, so look at the shape the country is in.
I agree with most of what Dr. Ben Carson says, he is an honest and truthful man and he thinks with common sense, but as far as being our Commander and Chief, I don’t think so. With all the people we have on the right to choose from, choosing someone like Dr. Carson I think is a big mistake. As we found out from Obama, it takes more to being president than just giving a good speech.
If Dr. Carson wants to enter the political theater, let him first start at the local level, my father once told me, “The only job where you start at the top, is digging a ditch.” Thinking that we should thrust this man into the most powerful job in the world is nuts, I know we are all waiting for another Reagan, but Dr. Carson is not him, we seem to be showing our desperation. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for Dr. Carson, and if I needed brain surgery, I would without a doubt want him to operate on me, but I have little confidence in him as President of The United States.
There are many good people in the political arena that are more qualified than Dr. Carson, some will say they are not Conservative enough, others will say they are too Conservative. When it comes to electing a president, America needs to start thinking with its head, instead of its heart. I want to see a Republican Party that can stand up and slug it out, not run and hide because someone called them a racist or bigot, or homophobe, or sexist.
No matter if you consider yourself a Republican, Conservative, or Independent we have to unify and back whoever the nominee is. Staying home will only give us another Liberal-Progressive in the White House and I do not think this country can survive another one; we need to choose someone who knows what they are doing, not because they give a good speech. Dr. Carson has said, “I have not felt called to run,” however, he adds, God could change that; I hope God stays out of this one.
