I asked Dr. Ben Carson Friday night what he meant when he said there might not be an election in 2016. Carson responded that there might be “so much anarchy” by then that an election would not be possible.

COLMES: What do you mean though when you say there may not be an election in 2016?

DR. BEN CARSON: There may be so much anarchy going on.

COLMES: Anarchy? So you really think we risk risking an anarchic America to the point where elections might be put on hold, or some kind of emergency is declared with such anarchy that there wouldn’t be a Presidential election in a couple of years?

DR. BEN CARSON: I don’t want to find out. I really don’t want to find out, I don’t want to continue down this pathway that we’re going down.

I also asked Carson how he could compare President Obama to both Nazis and communists. Listen:

    I find it strange that Carson has shown a desire to run for POTUS in 2016 while saying that there might not be a 2016 election. If he really believes that ‘anarchy’ will prevent a 2016 election, he wouldn’t be considering running in 2016.

    I smell bullsh*t.

    The reason Dr. Ben Carson is not taken seriously by (most of) the American public is that he has no substance. The only thing he can do is make ridiculous and cataclysmic statements and then not provide any evidence or proof to back them up. Examples include:
    –There’s so much anarchy going on that there might not be a 2016 election.
    –The Affordable Care Act “is the worst thing that has happened to this country since slavery”.
    –“By believing we are the product of random acts, we eliminate morality and the basis of ethical behavior”.
    –Regarding the recent Veterans’ Administration scandal: “I think what’s happening with the Veterans is a gift from God to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and its healthcare provider.”

    Until he provides some constructive solutions to the problems of this nation, he is just another contestant in the Republican Presidential Pageant. Right now, he’s a PeeWee Leaguer trying to make it on the roster of the Los Angeles Angels.

    Dr Carson has you right where he wants you. Most of what he says sounds like it comes from someone who can barely tie his own shoes, and not from an accomplished surgeon. But Carson knows his audience, he knows what gets attention and he knows what pays. Like any good snake oil salesman, he’s found a lucrative market, and he’ll work it as long as he can.

    Hmmmm. First he accuses the president of being a tyrant, of taking away our freedom and imposing big bad government on the people, then he says there may be too much anarchy for an election? Well, which is it?

    • PaulaNix

      Thanks Chuck. May I include only one more (even though there’s alot more) Refuses to produce his original birth certificate. I gave President Obama the benefit of the doubt, time and time again. The Birth Certificate, Bill Ayers, Rev Wright……over and over I wanted to believe what he was saying. I loved his speeches about change and how to be a better America……..But its like an abusive relationship. You stay because you believe in that person. You overlook his flaws. You ignore his actions and want to believe his words. I WAS DUPED! SHAME ON ME FOR NOT LOOKING AT HIS ACTIONS!!! I do have to say thank you for this website – I did have a realization that I will consider and read more about. Its in regard to separation of church and state……I’m not sure now. Before I thought it was extremely important to have Godly men leading this country, until I realized that Islam is in the White House. This is not Christianity. Rev Wright is not Christianity…It is man using religion to gain power. Jesus Christ condemned men like this. This is religion. This is not a relationship with the Lord. God Bless America.

      • Chuck Schettler

        Paula, First of all, Thank you for your understanding of who we now have running what I truly consider (with faults) the greatest country the world has known. As, I try to explain to my long time democratic
        supporting family (which I was registered to for 20 years) you, should not be simply voting for a party but, instead ideals, morals, record or what ever you hold near and dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal , that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness .
        Thanks again !
        Chuck S.

        • PaulaNix

          Thanks Chuck,
          I agree completely with you. But for me to cast my vote In the primaries for Ben Carson, I need to be registered as Republican. And now that I’m older and wiser, the GOP’s beliefs are what I value. I believe in freedom, pro-life, limited government, free press, right to bare arms, free speech, the Constitution, Founding Father’s courage, human potential, personal responsibility – these values are what created the most powerful country in the world. Innovation – creativity – capitalism – ingenuity – dreams never dreamed before – that’s the America that I love and want. Look at the socialistic countries in the European Union – they’re dying! Only capitalism is keeping them afloat. I embrace Ben Carson’s comments about limited terms and special interests groups, etc. Shoot – I could go on all day. I grew up in the south. I have pity on poor people, pity on black people who are not advancing, pity on people who weren’t getting ahead and I thought our government should be involved more and help these people. But as I got older, I began to seeing that the help was not helping. Families are looking to the government to take care of their problems when it should be the family themselves. We are enabling. And our government grows and grows. Let me stop!!! Here’s a great site I’ve come across – The Firewall by Bill Whittle. Thanks Chuck.

      • OldLefty

        PaulaNix,

        Funny, that is EXACTLY what WE said about the Right’s relationship to Bush AND Reagan.

        Now with Bush they just tiptoed backwards out of the room, put on a tricornered hat and said, “George W Who?? Oh, we NEVER liked him. He’s not a REAL conservative! We’re Tea Partiers now!!!”

        Neurotic projection is perceiving others as operating in ways one unconsciously finds objectionable in yourself.

        • Chuck Schettler

          Still, pointing fingers at what is a perceived view of other bad behavior to justify the actions of an arrogant, conceded, self serving narcissist b.h.o.

          • OldLefty

            Not at all.

            You don’t seem to see the difference between that and your just projecting the arrogant, conceded, self serving narcissist of your party’s behavior onto the president whom you hate.

            • Chuck Schettler

              Who is protecting who when one of us laid out a long list of promises and results with not even one explanation. Give it your best shot at providing answers to each and every line and please try your best to stick with facts and please, please… refrain from finger pointing and emotional rhetoric.

              • OldLefty

                And by the way, as for; ” Who is protecting who when one of us laid out a long list of promises and results with not even one explanation…”

                I said proJECTING, not proTECTING, in that your side is as or more guilty, of everything you accuse Obama of.

              • OldLefty

                My first response did not come through, (too long?)

                I will be more than happy to take on each of your list one by one, but anyone can copy and paste a list.
                Just Google;

                Updated Again! 262 Accomplishments By Obama & Democrats.
                And respond to each line, please.

                Respond to one very simple statement;

                THE LEGACY OF REAGAN’S PROMISES

                Ronald Reagan, had campaigned back in 1980 (and again in 1984) on a promise to slash the federal budget deficit. Reagan had as much trouble keeping his campaign promise as Bush and Clinton had in keeping theirs. When Reagan took office, the annual federal budget deficit (the excess of spending over tax receipts) was about $75 billion–roughly 2.6 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). By fiscal year 1986 it had ballooned to $220 billion, or nearly 6 percent of GDP. And although the deficit was cut in 1987 and 1988, it was still running at about $150 billion when Reagan handed the White House over to Bush. Moreover, the cumulative impact of the Reagan administration deficits was staggering: during Reagan’s eight years in office, the national debt of the United States government nearly tripled–rising from $900 billion in 1980 to $2.5 trillion in 1989.

                Then, I notice you did not respond to one of my accusations against Dr Carson.

              But for only one example;

              Where were YOU when;

              Ronald Reagan, had campaigned back in 1980 (and again in 1984) on a promise to slash the federal budget deficit. Reagan had as much trouble keeping his campaign promise as Bush and Clinton had in keeping theirs. When Reagan took office, the annual federal budget deficit (the excess of spending over tax receipts) was about $75 billion–roughly 2.6 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). By fiscal year 1986 it had ballooned to $220 billion, or nearly 6 percent of GDP. And although the deficit was cut in 1987 and 1988, it was still running at about $150 billion when Reagan handed the White House over to Bush. Moreover, the cumulative impact of the Reagan administration deficits was staggering: during Reagan’s eight years in office, the national debt of the United States government nearly tripled–rising from $900 billion in 1980 to $2.5 trillion in 1989.

              Why have YOU not responded to MY accusations about Ben Carson?

              THE LEGACY OF REAGAN’S PROMISES

              Ronald Reagan, had campaigned back in 1980 (and again in 1984) on a promise to slash the federal budget deficit. Reagan had as much trouble keeping his campaign promise as Bush and Clinton had in keeping theirs.

By fiscal year 1986 it had ballooned to $220 billion, or nearly 6 percent of GDP.

Moreover, the cumulative impact of the Reagan administration deficits was staggering: during Reagan’s eight years in office, the national debt of the United States government nearly tripled–rising from $900 billion in 1980 to $2.5 trillion in 1989.

              Then, I notice you did not respond to one of my accusations against Dr Carson.

                      And most of it is half truths, out of context or also true of ALL administrations or opinions.

    It is very hard to believe that Mr. Carson is a trained physician because his babbling nonsense makes no sense……………For the USA to have so called anarchy to stop an election would be Un-American and the USA is NOT a 3rd world country, so Mr. Carson is just playing his kind of political baiting……..and, I guess I bit………….

    • PaulaNix

      Michael Brown, under the influence, strong armed robbed a grocery store owner. Video shows him (6’4 gentle giant) push and threaten the store owner. Minutes later, altercations happen between him and the police and liberals are screaming racism and injustice. When video is posted on news showing Brown’s actions/robbery, the community says that the media is trying to smear his name. The community destroyed this man’s store for releasing the video which he has every right to do. They do not have the right to destroy his story. Where is the common sense in all of this. This gentle giant was a danger to society and deserved to die if he was charging at the police officer. Or if the officer felt that his life was threatened. That was not “gentle giant”. And our Attorney General, who is suppose to represent blind justice, a man is innocent until proven guilty, sides with the community who jumped on the “white policeman kills black boy”. That discord flared up and was promoted by our government and media. What other false information is going to have communities rise up? Ben Carson’s comments makes absolute sense.

        the creep has senility. and he has repeatedly lied about everything that has come out of his mouth and his book. and you think there’s something honorable in bragging about trying to bash your mother over the head with a hammer. which he lied about, but thought it was ok to say. weird. and all of his supporters are too. vote for him please.

        • Linda Carbone

          I didn’t know that he Lied about anything and I have not seen or read his book I’m only trying to learn about what is going on ?

    I’ll not put it past Obama’s is a Muslim traitor who is not finished trying to destroy America, and Hillary Clinton another traitor, I strongly believe that Ben Carson was only trying to warn the American people of the truth. They are all trying to stop Donald Trump because he has been exposing them all for what they are. And Donald Trump refuses to become another one of there puppets. And he has already proven that he can’t be bought. Obama and all of the rest of the dirty politicians who have not been following the constitution written by our founding fathers, because if they had followed our Constitution then America would not be in the mess it is today. They don’t want us the American people to know or find out more about the government selling America right out from underneath us for God knows how long ?

    • OldLefty

      That’s why David Frum said, “Republicans have been Fleeced, Exploited And Lied To’ by a Conservative Entertainment Complex”

      And why former Reagan aide Bruce Bartlett said, “Many conservatives live in a bubble where they watch only Fox News on television, they listen only to conservative talk radio — Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, many of the same people,” Bartlett told CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday. “When they go onto the Internet, they look at conservative websites like National Review, Newsmax, World Net Daily.”“And so, they are completely in a universe in which they are hearing the same exact ideas, the same arguments, the same limited amount of data repeated over and over and over again. And that’s brainwashing.”

    • Foundryman

      When you say “us the American people”…leave me out of it! Real Americans aren’t anti-government paranoid twits that believe the nonsense you just posted.

      • Linda Carbone

        News flash all Americans have been lied to none of the politicians have been following the constitution written by our founding fathers, because it’s written by our founding fathers that the United States of America was never supposed to allow anyone from the middle east in to our country. And obviously they have all chosen to ignore it. I’m voting for Donald Trump he’s not a politician he is an angry American just like the rest of us are.

        • OldLefty

          so, now you’re rooting for a despicable pos, that promotes violence to American Citizens who do NOT agree with him. he outsources his jobs to Mexico and China. he imports immigrants over hiring American Citizens and we are pissed about that. he has had 4 bankruptcies, he’s in court proceedings NOW for fraud, all of his wives are immigrants, he knows nothing of the constitution and the list goes on. oh, and don’t forget, telling the world that he loves the bible and is a “christian” and that he loves to read it, yet when asked his favorite passage, he says it’s a trick question. first lying carson, and now lying tRump. seems like you enjoy being lied to because the truth doesn’t fit the narrative.
