There is one candidate that stands above all others, especially the other two non political candidates--one whom is Trump. Dr. Ben Carson is second in the polls to Trump. Why he is not in first place only God knows and I think He is not pleased about it, because Ben Carson loves God a lot. So much so that he prayed--as he did before each and every operation he performed as a surgeon for 0ver 25 years, "lord if you want me to run for president, take me by the collar and tell me." See, people everywhere was urging him to run but he didn't want to. He was looking forward to retiring and finally learning to play the piano and play more pool! But God did "grab him by the collar" and Ben Carson knew he had to to this, because he loves America and knew with God's help and Presence he might be able to turn this country around. With God's help, he would do all he could that the people allowed him to do. I believe he has the intelligence and is a quick learner and that the methods he used to become a neurosurgeon can apply to him learning to run a country.
So if he is a Godly man and a fervent backer of the Constitution, why is he in second place? Is it because people look to Trump as the person to heal and get America strong again?! That doesn't make any sense. He is a boorish, egotistical, tantrum throwing man who has so many bad habits I can't name them all. But he love America and wants to save our country- and yet will not promise to support the candidate that, God forbid beats him out. He will run independently and in effect hand the election over to Hillary or Sanders. So am I right here--people, many Christians, are supporting this unprincipled bag of ego filled gas? While a man of God who is answering the words of God, If you will turn from your evil ways, then will I deliver you from your enemies and heal your nation, is being passed over? Then I guess it makes sense that atheists will vote for Ben Carson...? No, that's not it. Many people are convinced that the only candidate to beat the Dem/Soc/Communist party is Trump--and why is that? Oh, because he is a gruff man and strong minded and forceful and will he ever put those enemies of ours in their place! Maybe he could, but then he might not, it just will be according to his mood or ego driven motives. I shudder to think of him enraged with anger about something and the nuke button at his disposal. But don't make the mistake that Ben Carson's soft voice makes him weak in action or thought! He has very definite ideas about ending terrorists groups and handling the illegal immigrant problem and his tithing of people based on the 10% of your wages is something this country needs right now--the current 10 or 15 percent is not working. The quote from the bible "As for me and my house, we will choose the Lord." has now, at least for me and the Ben Carson for President 2016 group on Facebook become a belief that represents the faith we hold that God truly has appointed Ben Carson to make this country strong again--not because we want it so, but that God wants to give the people another chance to give up it's evil ways and return to Him. He has become angered that He has been taken out of schools and banned from public places and Christian holidays. He is giving us a last chance and I believe His hand is on Dr Ben Carson. The prayers he gets from the Ben Carson for president 2016 group is tremendous. And speaking of this great group of people, here is an article from a member. It says it all and why Ben Carson should be the next President of the US.
What has the billionaire Trump to offer !!! He loves to brag about himself and tell everyone how wonderful he is.
In contrast, Ben Carson has literally treated/saved thousands, yes, thousands of children! But, that's not all!!!! Read on!
Now, I ask you. Who is more caring, more generous, more giving, more understanding of the struggles of everyday people and initiating more ways to assist them? Dr. Phil says the greatest predictor of future behavior is past behavior. I want Carson in the White House because he cares more about people and solving America's problems with God's help rather than hear Trump spout about his money and who or what he can bribe to get his way. They are both BULLIES that have to be BOSS and it has to be their way or no way. They are both as conceited as they come and it is always about ME, MYSELF AND I. When they don't get their own way they whine, pout or throw childish tantrums. It is all about them getting EVEN with anyone that opposes them. No doubt Obama hates America, but Trump loves himself far more than anything. He says the Bible is his favorite book, but he seemed to miss the scripture telling us NOT TO THINK MORE HIGHLY OF OURSELVES THAN WE OUGHT. Self centered people are never happy and they really don't care about making anyone else happy either. Perhaps that is why he's been married 3 times.

People must read about Ben Carson, watch his videos and learn about how he feels about the issues facing America today--we don't have a lot of time left, God is displeased with us as a nation--and will not be mocked.

Carson said he supports forced vaccinations on everyone, regardless of their philosophical views OR religious faith. He also support the H-1b visa program that is flooding our country with subversive foreigners. His closest friend is a homosexual who was indicated for a homosexual crime. NO NO NO - carson is NOT what he pretends to be and he is a liar. He does NOT get our vote.

Without presuming to speak for the author, I disagree.
Dr. Carson retired as a pediatric neurosurgeon, not a GP or immunologist, and so it is not surprising to me that he might not know of the many contraindications of many of the "approved" vaccines today. Further, I don't believe he is a Catholic. The only way he would know about the Culture Of Death sources of material going into many vaccines, such as the Rubella vaccine, would be from Catholic radio, Catholic TV or Catholic websites. It is quite religiously censored everywhere else, which is why most Americans don't know about it.
Again, as a retired medical doctor with absolutely no political experience, he was probably just as ignorant of the H-1B Visa abuses as was most of the population. He also misspoke about guns once; he needs a chance to catch up with the other politicians on hot topics he has never paid serious attention to. I believe when he sees the truth of any matter, he will change accordingly.
As far as friends and associates, I assure you, he is not the only one in America with impure members of their immediate families, extended families, neighbors, friends, colleagues, church congregation members, etc., etc., etc. Once our whole American culture began to not only tolerate but celebrate open sexual licentiousness in all its perverse variety, our once Christian culture began to deteriorate to the degree we see around us today. It cannot be said any longer that a man is defined by his friends. It is now almost at the point where the true Christian who would not associate with public determined sinners is the one on the outside, anathematized by the culture itself.
Dr. Carson shows every sign of being a man of extraordinarily high Principle. And that may indeed be a rarity among the Republicrat candidates.
No one else has responded, so I thought it was time I did.

Ben Carson said that he referred patients to get abortions. He also is in favor of homosexual "rights." He has no political experience. I do not want to see him as president of the US.
