I just watched the short video by Dr. Benjamin Carson HERE as he announced his Presidential Exploration committee. I made a small donation to show my support for him. He will be on the Bill O'Reilly show on the Fox channel this evening. He and Ted Cruz pretty much tied for 3rd place in the straw poll at the recent CPAC convention. Rand Paul came in 1st and Scott Walker 2nd. If you have been on this blog before, you may already know that GOP polls of the rank and file in Washington State show Dr. Carson getting more than double the amount of votes as the next runners up in this State.
I Like him. I like him a lot. I hope we can keep Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in the Senate where they are doing a good job under the circumstances. Walker is doing well in Wisconsin and we need more Governors like him in the States all across the country.
The first thing I like about Dr. Carson is what people say is a weak point. They say he has no political experience. Personally, I would be THRILLED to see someone put in authority who is NOT one of the "good ole boys club." Look at what happened in D.C just this week. We finally get a conservative majority in the house and the senate by voting our convictions against the "usurper's" tactics of "Executive Amnesty" and so on - but the professional politicians ignored the will of the people and pushed through a bill to fund the usurper's executive amnesty anyway.
The last thing we need is another professional politician. Dr. Carson may not be a D.C. insider but do not kid yourself - no black man could have risen to the place of power and authority in his career at John Hopkins University Hospital with out knowing how to work with people in a flawed system. I encourage you to read his autobiography "Gifted Hands" or watch the movie by the same name on Netflix. See my review of the book in the right hand column of this blog.
The man presently in the White House is an imposter. Ben will be the first REAL black man to hold the office of President of the United States when we elect him. It will be wonderful to see him correct all the errors of this last administration. Those that do the number crunching have determined if Ben only gets 17% of the black vote in 2016, he cannot lose.
