Ben Carson PERFECTLY Explains How Government Should REALLY Work


By on Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Ben Carson defends his lack of political experience insisting “our government was set up for citizen statesmen, not for career politicians.”
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday with Chuck Todd, Carson was grilled on the concerns regarding his lack of government or political experience when he suggested “the Constitution was written at a eighth grade level for a reason.”
True, socialism may sound wonderful: all is shared, universal equality is realized, and we all live happily ever after.



Host Chuck Todd asked Carson,”What do you say to folks that say, ‘Why should we hire you as president when you have no experience in government or the political field?’”
Carson explained, “I would say that there are a lot of people who like to believe that whatever they do is the end-all and that nobody could absolutely do things better than they could. It’s sort of like the Constitution. People say, ‘What are you doing talking about the Constitution? You’re not a constitutional lawyer.’”
“Well, the Constitution was written at a eighth grade level for a reason,” suggested Carson. “They wanted the people to be able to understand how they were being governed.”
“And our government was set up for citizen statesmen, not for career politicians,” claimed Carson. “And, you know, common sense is a lot more valuable than many years in the political arena.”
To help make up for his lack of Washington know-how, Carson suggested he would hire people who “were well seasoned in what was going on in Washington and in various parts of the world.”
True, socialism may sound wonderful: all is shared, universal equality is realized, and we all live happily ever after.

“As a neurosurgeon, I know a lot about the brain,” said Carson. “But if I have a complex patient with a kidney problem, even though I know a lot about the kidney, I’m going to get a renal specialist. And by the same token, if I’m dealing with a complex issue in Syria, I’m going to get a lot of people who have a lot of information about Syria.”
Todd clarified, “So you’re going to surround yourself with experienced people is what you’re saying?”
“I think you have to do that. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, said in Proverbs 11:14, ‘In a multitude of counselors is safety,’” Carson said. “If the wisest man who ever lived thought that, I certainly believe that. I think you’re a fool if you think you know everything.”
