AMAC Calls Carson a Model for Conservatives

‘He’s a role model for all of us who want to put the nation back on the right track’ –

BOHEMIA, NY, Mar 1 – “A new player has emerged on the national political scene—Dr. Ben Carson—and although he is not yet a full-fledged contender for the top job, there is no doubt that his influence is growing exponentially,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“In case you missed it, Dr. Carson is the guy who had the intestinal fortitude to stand up for what he believes in and eloquently deliver a face to face rebuttal of the wrong-headed policies that President Obama has foisted on us.  He did it respectfully, but forcefully at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast in D.C. while standing just a few feet away from the president, himself.  He’s a role model for all of us who want to put the nation back on the right track.” Weber explained.

Since then, he has been applauded in some quarters and vilified in other quarters but his message got through loud and clear, namely that we must not abandon the values and grit that made America great in the first place, the AMAC chief noted.

Carson was tapped to address the Conservative Political Action Conference, March 14 through the 16th.  Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union that sponsors CPAC, had this to say in announcing the pick: “Dr. Ben Carson represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative movement, while at the same time he articulates the deep fiscal and social challenges that our nation faces.”

There will be a number of potential 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls at the CPAC event, but Weber said he believes that Carson will not necessarily be there to promote a personal political agenda.  “The man is sincere in his beliefs and he has an important message to convey not only to those who will vie for the Republican nomination, but to everyone in earshot, Conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Liberals and Independent.”

His speech at the Prayer Breakfast included concrete alternatives to the administration’s socialist agenda.  He espoused a flat tax, for example.

Perhaps more important, he called for the replacement of Obamacare with individual health accounts.  Those who could afford it would contribute to these health savings plans and those who could not would be provided with government assistance.  In either case, the individual would be making the choices, not the government, Weber explained.

As the Washington Times put it in an editorial, “Dr. Carson’s remarks inspired the millions yearning for someone to articulate conservative solutions to national problems.”

You are RIGHT ON Ben Carson, your message could not have been said better. We must promote the TRUTH and ignore the lies, and pray for more men like Ben Carson

I hope Dr. Ben Carson has no skeletons in his closet, like poor Herman Cain. Anyway the unscruplous media and the lying libs, will sure enough put some there!

Carson is definitely NOT a model for most Conservatives: he is a good man with some good ideas, but he does not understand the U.S. Constitution and is a traitor to the Second Amendment which makes him not a model for a vast majority of us who do understand the Constitution and hold the Second Amendment to be the reason we are not serfs of the liberal left.

I love Dr.Ben Carson, but if he is smart, he won’t run for Pres. He is better off being a doctor. I think he wants to open the eyes of the black community to wake them up.
Members read your Bible. The Republicans that are caving in are representative of what happens during the end times. Obama pushes his agenda on everyone and could care less about what Congress thinks. He loves to spend and is afraid to let go of any of any of those useless govt. programs.
The Rep.party needs to clean house and get someone they can count on that can bring new leadership. Otherwise we will be dead in the water.

Carson is terrific–except on the second amendment. There he needs a little help!

OF COURSE I AGREE WITH ALL OF THE POSITIVE COMMENTS STATED CONCERNING DR. CARSON. THE QUESTION IS, HOW TO GET HIS MESSAGE OF LOGIC AND UNCOMMON SENSE TO THOSE WHO NEED A JOLT OF REALITY? WHEN THE LIBERAL MEDIA AVOIDS ANY UNBIASED COVERAGE.

I have heard Dr. Carson speak, he is so refreshing. Unfortunately people like him are better off not being a politican. Another individual I have seen speak and am impressed with is Alan West, a former Representative from Florida. I believe he is a very strong minded individual in support of the American ideal. It is to bad people like this don’t have more direct input into what is good for this great country.
Thank you for the opportunity to express some thoughts.

Its time to expose Obama on the lies he’s been telling the American people now that the sequester is signed. Whatever comes before congress he wants ito increase tax’s – That is an issue AMAC should be addressing constantly. The retired people are loosing their savings at an real pace becasue of what this adminstration has done to the senior’s most of whom have no idea what’s going on – They are called “NIV”S THE NON-INFORMED VOTER- THESE PEOPLE NEED HELP!!!!!

Leslie Phalen

Hay folks, in your recent article titled “AMAC Calls Carson a Model for Conservatives” , you have lead the article with a picture of someone other than Doc. Ben Carson himself? All other articles seem to have a picture of whom or what they are addressing? Keystone Pipeline you have a picture of pipeline, Bob Woodward, a picture of old Bob.
In Boca Raton and cornfuzed ?

I haven’t heard the conservative message delivered like that since Ronald Reagan. The conservative movement has been in search of another Reagan for a long time. God delivered Dr Carson at the right time too, because he’s an off the plantation Black man with a true rags to riches story. No doubt the left character assassination squads, (Remember Herman Cain) will be out in force as soon as he’s elevated to a “Threat to the power” of the left, but, who better to face that down. Mt prayer is that there are still enough self reliant folks left in our country to deliver a win for him, if he so chooses, in 2016.

Dr. Carson was criticized for his audacity in disagreeing with the president. His actual audacity was in speaking the truth in front of a flagrant liar.

Barack Obama is “The Emperor Jones.” Read the play by Eugene O’Neill.

Whether or not Dr. Carson chooses to run for office is immaterial. We need his wisdom and his goodness. “The truth will set you free.”

With a person the quality of Dr. Carson, how have we allowed someone like Obama to get such a foot hold on “OUR COUNTRY”

Henry

Finally, a dedicated intelligent person, levels above any BS politician the Democrap Party puts up. A true LEADER.

Florence

Carson is real! He has nothing to hide so he has no reason to lie.

Christina

I have seen Dr. Carson on Hannity and other shows and soooooooooooo love to hear him talk. He is such a breath of fresh air. I dont feel Im getting the double talk. I hope he will lead the charge, in whatever capacity that may be, to get this country back on track. God bless you Dr. Carson.

I saw the speech at the Prayer Breakfast and was simply overjoyed at hearing this honest, intelligent, God-fearing Man speak. I loved watching the expression on ODumbo’s face. For one time in his life he didn’t have someone making a speech, praising him for his “leadership” and his plans for the nation. ODumbo thinks everyone is stupid and lacking in intelligence, except for HIM. This great man said exactly what so many of us feel is true and what it will take to bring this country back to what it was intended to be. God Bless this man and may be be someone who can help this country get back on track. He has my vote.

Dr. Carson’s speech was truly amazing and inspirational. Mr. Obama should have had the decency to applaud his conviction to his beliefs.

David A. Scott

There is much i can add to this discussion if people are willing to argue as the good Doctor did in the gentleness of wisdom!!11Are you praying for our president?? This is where good journalism begins and name calling ends!!!! Out of respect for this socialist we will win!!!!! I am not speaking about respecting his views but i am talking first to God and then with boldness speak to his ignorance!!!
