Dear Dr. Carson,
You aren't a strong anti-establishment Republican.
Your campaign cry is "we can do it better". That's it. Republicans can govern, by which you mean manage the bureaucracy more efficiently. Oh, you want to get rid of waste, and duplicate programs and all sorts of other similar sound bites that the consultants claim will play well to "the base" of so called "moderates".
Remember that Planned Parenthood dead baby parts for profit scandal? I do. You are one of the guys buying aborted baby parts to experiment on. I see you claim to be against abortion, but not against creating a market for fetal tissue. Whatever.
Your grasp of economics boarders on the Obama-esque, big government socialism with a touch of compassionate conservative. You are little more than a FDR Republican whose skin color is the right hue to draw some needed inner city demographics.
I can't get excited about you as a candidate. Sure you'll probably beat Hillary. Not being Hillary is going to turn out the votes come next fall. It's just not a reason to vote for you Dr. Carson. Plus whose to say you'll get a chance to run against her? The Donald is still at the top of the pack.
Dr. Carson you hit pay dirt this last week. You said that America's biggest threat is the debt and deficit spending.
I don't know why you chose this topic. One of your handlers put it on the teleprompter and you went with it. My advice is to: beat this drum, over and over and over again. Carson make this issue stick and stick in the front of peoples minds.
Carson, if you're smart then, harp on the debt the way Trump harps on illegals.
This is the only truly anti-establishment position in the bag of tricks. It also happens to be the only point that Trump hasn't made more effectively that traditional Republicans care about. Federal spending is also one of those elephants in the room that everyone knows is a problem but nobody knows how to solve.
Ben, you've gotta beat the debt drum! You've gotta make the budget and spending into a great big bandwagon and get everyone chasing it. That is, you gotta do it, if you want to win the White House. Hillary is going to be the business as usual candidate. With H we're going to get more welfare and more warfare. She's got more of the same Clinton/Bush B.S. that folks are sick of.
If you want to win Ben, you need to get radical on budget, spending and debt; really, totally, unprecedented, radical. I'm talking Ron Paul and Gary North walk into a bar, get plastered and fanaticize about all the crap they would cut, radical. You gotta tell the voters about it. Tell them how bad of shape America is in. Tell them how we can only fix it by drastically cutting spending and ending government policies that are hurting our economy.
Of course you don't have to do it. I'm sure Trump is watching to see how much of bump you get from this. He has said basically the same thing. I suspect we will see more about fixing the economy out of the Big Haired One.
Right now you have the spotlight and control of an issue of true importance to America. Do as thou wilt with it.
