Christian Coalition backing Ben Carson for President "Run Ben Run"Submitted by The Granger on Tue, 10/15/2013 - 10:41
Text of email I recieved:
You and I must win the White House in 2016. That’s why I urge you to sign the petition urging Dr. Ben Carson to run for President of the United States.
Did you see Ben Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast? With President Obama sitting only a few feet away, Dr. Carson said this about taxes...
“When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the Universe, God, and he's given us a system. It's called tithe. Now we don't necessarily have to [make] it 10% but it's the principle. He didn't say, if your crops fail, don't give me any tithes. He didn't say, if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithes. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality.
I believe non-politician Ben Carson is the right man at the right time to serve as President of the United States. That’s why I urge you to please sign the enclosed petition to Ben Carson right now. Why? Here are 3 reasons...
•Ben Carson will win. In fact, when I explain, you’ll understand why he is the only candidate who is sure to win.
•Ben Carson will heal America. As President he will heal America and unite us as one people working together to achieve the American dream.
•Ben Carson is a Tea Party conservative. He has supported the Tea Party since it began and he has practical, commonsense solutions to the problems that plague our land.
Why is Ben Carson Sure to Win?
In 2011, internal polls showed that Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain was backed by 40% of black Americans.
Mr. Cain was well liked, but Dr. Carson is a national hero in the black community.
If Herman Cain could poll 40% of the black vote, running against the first black president, just imagine what percent of the black vote Dr. Ben Carson would receive running against Hillary Clinton or any other far left white Democrat!
I believe Ben Carson will win more than 50% of the African American vote.
But, if Ben Carson receives just 20% of the black vote, no Democrat candidate for President, black or white, can win!
That’s right, just 20% of the black vote!
And, the Democrats know it. They know that their grasp on power is hanging by the thread of the lie that all conservatives are racists.
The election of Ben Carson would create a sea change in American politics. It would permanently dismantle the Democrat coalition that gives them victory year after year.
The end of far left Democrat Party dominance!
In a head-to-head contest with Hillary Clinton, there’s just no way that Ben Carson will receive less than 40% of the black vote.
But, the Republican establishment is uncomfortable with Dr. Carson because he is an outspoken Christian conservative, and a Tea Party Republican. They want another establishment Republican as their presidential nominee.
And, if the GOP nominates another establishment Republican, Hillary will win.
The nomination of Dr. Ben Carson is our sure path to victory in 2016.
But, Just Winning Isn’t Enough!
We must elect a man who will not settle for politics as usual.
We must elect as man who is 100% committed to the United States Constitution, and to the principles of freedom set forth by the Founders; a man who will insist on a balanced budget, and who is not a captive of political correctness. A man who believes that the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. A man who understands that true wisdom comes from the Bible.
And, we must elect a man who has the courage to stand up to the President of the United States and tell him to his face that Obamacare is a disaster that must be repealed as Dr. Carson did at the National Prayer Breakfast.
Dr. Benjamin Carson is That Man!
This is where Dr. Carson stands on the important issues of our day. If you stand with him, then please sign the enclosed petition now.
•Abortion. End it now! It is barbaric.
•Marraige. It is between a man and a woman only as ordained by God
•National Debt. Cut government spending by 10% each year, across the board, until the budget is balanced!
•Obamacare. Repeal it! Replace it with a free market health savings account.
•Taxes. Make it fair and make sure that everyone has skin in the game. Everyone pays.
Immigration. Listen to the American people, secure our borders. End it. •Redistribution of Income. Stop it. It’s un-American.
•Welfare. It not only encourages self-destructive behavior, it is a trap. Replace it with a truly compassionate, free market approach that enables those on welfare to gain prosperity through employment and entrepreneurship.
•Judges. Appoint judges committed to the US Constitution.
•Political Correctness. It is dangerous. It hinders progress and divides our nation.
•Right to Keep & Bear Arms. It’s a vital part of the our Bill of Rights! End of story!
•Democrats and Republicans. Both have been part of the problem. America first!
The most important reason to support Ben Carson...
Dr. Carson is the only man who can heal and unite Americans - black ,white, Hispanic, men and women, employer and employee, young and old.
Only once before, during the Civil War, were Americans as divided as they are today.
Dr. Carson will end the rancor, the distrust, the divide that has been crassly exploited by the leftists who control the Democratic Party. He will unite us as one great nation.
And, Ben Carson is a proud and unrepentant American!
“...there is no country I’d rather be a citizen of and call home than America. Where else but in this land of opportunity are people given so much freedom to pursue their dreams, with the potential to bring out the best in everyone?”
Ben Carson is a winning candidate! But, will he run?
Almost certainly! He has made it clear he will run if asked, if drafted...
This is what he said to a New York Times reporter when asked if he was considering a run for President...
“Certainly if a year and a half went by and there was no one on the scene and people are still clamoring, I would have to take that into consideration. I would never turn my back on my fellow citizens.”
Dr. Carson is just waiting to hear from you and me!
He agrees with the Founders’ idea of citizen statesmen serving their country, and that’s why he believes he must be called to serve by American citizens before being entitled to run.
Are You Ready to Clamor?! Dr. Carson is waiting to hear from you!
If you want to win in 2016, and you want to end the racial divide and elect a genuine conservative as President, then please join me in clamoring for Ben Carson today.
Please sign the Run, Ben, Run! petition today.
Let Dr. Carson know that you want him to run for President in 2016.
Ben Carson will run if we send him hundreds of thousands of petitions urging him to run for President. So won’t you...
Please sign your petition today!
And, when you do so, won’t you please give this effort your most generous financial support? This is a national campaign. We need your dollars now to start organizing, especially in the early primary states.
We must generate news and show Dr. Carson that he has national support by placing billboards in the early primary states and, early in 2014, start running national radio advertising, to be followed by national television advertising.
Your gift of $35 or more today will help pay for a field organization that will work to put Ben Carson on the ticket in every primary state.
Early dollars are critical to success!
Your early support of $35 or $50 or $100 or even $1,000 or more is worth multiples of that amount next year.
Don’t forget, the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee is a Super PAC and that means we can accept contributions of any amount from individuals, partnerships and corporations.
Establishment Republicans are already running hard and they have deep financial pockets. They are nice people, but they are not conservatives like you and me. Their nominee lost the last two elections for President and they are sure to lose again.
And, of course, Hillary Clinton is trying her best to match Barack Obama’s billion dollar campaign.
But, you and I can nominate and elect a man the Founders would be proud of, a man dedicated to the US Constitution and to fiscal responsibility. You and I must put our efforts and our dollars behind Ben Carson.
Won’t you please strike a blow for victory in 2016, and for freedom, by donating to the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee today?

P.S. Don’t just sit back and let the Republican Establishment pick the next GOP nominee! You can change the future. My great-grandfather was proud to be an American and I can guarantee you that he would be among the first to put his name on the petition that clamors for Ben Carson to run for President. That’s why I hope and pray that you will join this crusade to save America by signing the Run, Ben, Run! petition, and by donating at least $35 to this crucial draft effort. God bless you and God bless America!
