Gotta agree with his theory……
Ben Carson believes “that our country’s biggest threats come from within” and blames “our incredible fiscal irresponsibility” that allows “education to take a second seat.”
Carson, appearing on ABC’s “The Week” with guest host Martha Raddatz on Sunday, explained, “We have to develop all of our people and we have to start thinking in a group sense of how do we develop and make America a place of success for everybody.”
Raddatz asked Carson if he really believes that America could fall or collapse and the candidate explained, “I believe that our country’s biggest threats come from within.”
“From failing to address our incredible fiscal irresponsibility by allowing our populous to become enemies with each other, stirring up hatred and strife within our country,” suggested Carson.
“By allowing the education to take a second seat, by giving a lot of lip service but not actually taking care of it.”
“One of the things that allowed us so rapidly to advance early on, was the fact that we had a relatively well-educated populous,” insisted Carson. “And Alexis de Tocqueville was so impressed with that when he came over to study America. We only have 323 million in this country. We have to compete against China and India, which have over 1 billion people. We have to develop all of our people and we have to start thinking in a group sense of how do we develop and make America a place of success for everybody.”
