CARSON: Obamacare fight is the new Alamo; no reinforcements coming

Today, the freedom of Americans to control their own health care needs is being threatened by massive governmental interference. Those attempting to fundamentally change America are attempting to take control of the most important thing any of us possesses: our health.

It often comes at a heavy cost, but freedom is worth fighting for. In 1836, the brave defenders of the Alamo went down to defeat by Mexican Gen. Santa Anna and his army, which was 10 times greater in number than the defenders under the command of Lt. Col. William Barret Travis. Not all of the 200 defenders were Texans. Many of the civilian defenders, including some Mexicans, were more loyal to Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, who fell ill prior to the battle.

The defenders who had captured San Antonio just months earlier had retreated to the well-fortified Alamo and had sent for reinforcements, fully expecting to be able to hold on until help arrived.

He's lovely. So calm and articulate.

I don't think he understands libertarian principles 100%, but if he can start shoving Americans in the right direction, that is A-Okay with me.
I wonder if the black (mis)leadership has started calling him an Uncle Tom yet.

Can we get excited yet? I think we need to have some arrests, trials and have our media telling the truth before we can get our country back.

I always love his interviews

I always love his interviews and speeches. Carson is one of the brave and smart doctors fighting for people.
