Dr Ben Carson Gets Rapturous Applause on “The View”

May 20th, 2014 | by Nick Adams

The impressive retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson calmly and eloquently articulated American principles in an interview on the book about his new book “One Nation”, eliciting a positive response from most.

Appearing on “The View” Tuesday, Dr. Ben Carson explained why he believes the current welfare system in the United States is not doing the poor any favors. His insightful response actually moved actor Terry Crews to join the audience in applauding the retired neurosurgeon.

“When you rob someone of their incentive to go out there and improve themselves, you are not doing them any favors,” Carson said. “When you take somebody and pat them on the head and say, ‘There there, you poor little thing… Let me give you housing subsidies, let me give you free health care because you can’t do that.’”

    Carson sounds great…right up until he says “some restrictions” on types of firearms are good based on where you live. In the cities, where crime is rampant, he thinks defending yourself with an AR-15 should be illegal, while living in a rural setting, where crime is low, an AR is OK. I don’t think he gets the ‘self defense against ALL threats’ intent of the second amendment. “ALL threats” includes tyrannical government.

      i have corresponded with the draft Ben pac on this point. They claim he is 100% pro-2nd…I’m waiting to see. I hope he starts to give it a little more critical thought…and drops the PC crappola when he goes on these shows.
