Opinion: Ben Carson the best choice for restoring American leadership

Thank you Jim McConnell for an excellent letter in last week’s Bonanza regarding Dr. Ben Carson being the best choice for the 2016 Republican presidential nominee.

Following Jim’s suggestion, I read John Philip Sousa IV book, viewed Dr. Carson’s National Prayer Breakfast speech, watched the debate on TV and attended the Corley Ranch Inaugural Basque Fry, where Dr. Carson spoke.

From my observation, Dr. Carson possesses the qualities that many of our great presidents such as Washington, Lincoln and Reagan exhibited. Dr. Carson is a man of deep faith and humility, and exhibits a keen sense of humor along with common sense.

He is a trusted member of the medical profession who believes a Medical Savings Plan would provide better medical coverage at less the expense than the present Affordable Care Plan.

As you might expect, Dr. Carson is a strong advocate of education, which he feels is best left in the hands of the states. Dr. Carson has plans for reducing the country’s deficit, building up the military, fixing the immigration problem while simplifying the present tax code.

If you wish to learn more about, Dr. Ben Carson visit the internet and let’s work together to restore American leadership.
