Ben Carson says Anarchy may Force Cancellation Of 2016 Election

SWFL_F1sh0nSWFL_F1sh0n Posts: 17,248 Officer
Dr. Ben Carson, a popular Tea Party activist and Fox News contributor who says he will likely seek the Republican nomination for president in 2016, said on Sunday that he is seriously concerned that there will not be 2016 elections in the United States because the country could be in anarchy by that point. His reasons: the growing national debt, ISIS, and the U.S. Senate’s refusal to consider legislation passed by the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.

Host Chris Wallace noted that in light of his potential presidential campaign, Carson’s previous comments were now under a greater spotlight. He noted Carson’s August comment that if the Republicans don’t win a majority in the Senate this year, the 2016 elections might not even be held and asked the retired neurosurgeon if he stood by it:

WALLACE: You said recently that there might not even be elections in 2016 because of widespread anarchy. Do you really believe that?

CARSON: I hope that that’s not going to be the case. But certainly there’s the potential because you have to recognize that we have a rapidly increasing national debt, a very unstable financial foundation, and you have all these things going on like the ISIS crisis that could very rapidly change things that are going on in our nation. And unless we begin to deal with these things in a comprehensive way and in a logical way there is no telling what could happen in just a couple of years.

The seed doesn't fall far from the tree . . the tactics of using fear continues by those on the right. Sad really. What's even worse are these "so called" libertarians will drink it up.

    Anarchy over ISIS, put the bottle down Ben.
    It is not the responsibility of the United States to solve the problems of other countries.

    He's probably referring to our economy imploding due to devaluation of the dollar.

    Exactly why we shouldn't be there. Goal of terrorists is to bankrupt us - plan working.

    Obama was supposed to declare himself king if he won re-election. Now it is, ifwe don't elected Republican we will have anarchy.

    It shows desperation on the Tea Party conservative movement to convince people to vote for their candidate. They can't win on the issues so that they go with, vote for us or you will have anarchy.

    Dr. Ben Carson is an educated, accomplished conservative. That's one strike against him from the lwnj's.
    Dr. Ben Carson is a black conservative. Two strikes by the lwnj's.
    Dr. Ben Carson is a private citizen, not on the taxpayer dole. Three strikes.
    He publically challenged Obama on Obamacare...unforgivable.


    If, however, he was supported by taxpayers, not a private citizen, white and part of the Washington Democrat elite...wonder if the same lwnj's would complain if he said the following...

    “Fear is a motivator, and we are not fear-mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope, and that’s what we will continue to be.” (Nancy Pelosi to Bill Maher, 9/15)...and during the same interview...

    [video=youtube_share;cWHMB0w2Qkg]

    In case you missed it - Pelosi, a public-financed professional politician, Obamacare architect, of 'pass it before we know what's in it' fame, states that 'civilization as we know it would be in jeopardy if the Republicans gain the Senate', yet assures us the Democrats are not fear-mongers.

    Riiiight!!

    Gl, I know Carson is brilliant fellow, but he did say something stupid (in the name of politics).
    Vote for the other candidate

    Sad that you have to attack someone because the best candidate that you guys are fielding is a idiot.

    A brilliant person does not mean they can tie their shoes, or lead, or not say stupid stuff. As for the rest . . it is just pathetic ramblings.

    True that...we've had a great example these past six years!!! :grin

    Anyway, I'll see your fear mongering Dr. private citizen Ben, and raise you one fear mongering former Speaker of the House and current House Minority Leader 'civilization-as-we-know-it-would-be-in-jeopardy-if-the-Republicans-gain-the-Senate' Nancy Pelosi.

    'Course clear thinking, reasonable folk would say there's no comparison in the weight of the words of a citizen and a powerful politician (the highest-ranking female politician in American history, according to wiki).
    So...what say you?

    Won't matter . . he will still be handcuffed by the house and senate just as Obama has been.

    Ben is wrong on this, Obama phones, EBT cards and social media will pacify the masses. Bread and games worked for hundreds of years.

    There's probably quite a lot you don't know, but...speaking of hating accomplished and educated women...can you believe that Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House, current House Minority Leader and, according to wiki, the 'the highest-ranking female politician in American history'...in an interview with Bill Maher actually said...

    "Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”, and then went on to say...

    Truth is not fear mongering. All the work that has been done in the past 6 or so years could be immediately set America back by decades if the GOP gains 60+ control of the senate and retains the house. However short of that, I agree with Bill, we'll just filibuster like the GOP has done.

    I guess I should ask . . do you disagree with her? Presuming the GOP Senate would get 60?
