Letter to the Editor: Dr. Ben Carson is a citizen statesman
Randy Gilbert has written a book called “Creating a Movement With and For Dr. Ben Carson – How to Wake Up America, So We Can Live the Dream.” Gilbert shares that, “Dr. Ben Carson is doing something that no other presidential candidate is doing.” Carson has started a “we the people” movement that is made up of proud Americans of every party, race, age and belief.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made history by starting the greatest movement for freedom in the history of our nation. In his “I Have a Dream” speech he shared his movement’s purpose: “All men would be judged by their character, not their color… and our children would all play together as if there were no difference.”
“We the people” have the opportunity of a lifetime. We can create a post-racial, post-hate, and post poverty world.
Dr. Carson is a citizen statesman. Politicians focus on how to get elected. They say and do anything to make that happen. Citizen statesmen have integrity. They focus on what is best for “we the people.” Because Dr. Carson is a citizen statesman, he is free to use his brain as his mother taught him to do. He is free to use the wisdom given him by God.
Gilbert shares, “One of the best things about a movement is that it empowers Dr. Carson to take the majority position on nearly every issue.” A majority of “we the people” are taking the moral high ground.
Arthur Brooks, teaches the importance of a movement at the American Enterprise Institute. He wrote a book called “The Conservative Heart. “
There are many wrongs that need to be made right. With a movement of people who want truth and justice, we don’t have to wait for Jan. 20, 2017, to see changes made.
Saul Alinsky has won the main stream media’s hearts and their allegiance. They love dividing us Americans into little groups that fight amongst ourselves. They proclaim socialist ideologies instead of reporting the news faithfully.
You and I have the opportunity to heal, inspire and revive. God bless America.
