Dr. Ben Carson Speech at National Prayer Breakfast - necessary treatment

Conservative Dr. Ben Carson delivered a brilliant speech at the national prayer breakfast.

What was his message? Responsibility, character, decency. Dr. Carson dipped into public policy, with the president sitting right there (probably uncomfortably).

“Our deficit is a big problem,” said Dr. Carson. “Think about it — and our national debt — $16 and a half trillion dollars.” 

He even gave a common-sense, anti-wealth-envy message about taxes: "What about our taxation system — so complex there is no one that can possibly comply with every jot and tittle. When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe — God — and he’s given us a system. It’s called tithe.”

Not exactly a message that politicians want to hear, especially those who base their careers on division and envy.

Dr. Carson is a leader. He is brilliant. Someone with his character, intellect and views should have been the "first black president." How I wish he would run for president. It would be hard for the professional victims, hucksters and self-righteous, condescending leftists to shout him down.
