Dr. Ben Carson – who is considering a run for president in 2016 – fear mongered that there is the “potential” for “widespread anarchy” in the U.S. that might disrupt or cause the cancellation of the 2016 election.
On Fox News Sunday today, there was the following exchange between host Chris Wallace and Carson:
WALLACE: You are thinking about running for president in 2016. And I want to talk to you about that in a moment, but it has brought attention back to some of your comments as it does to any candidate potentially running for president. You said recently that you thought that there might not actually be elections in 2016 because of widespread anarchy. Do you really believe that?
CARSON: Well, I hope that that’s not going to be the case, but certainly there is the potential. Because you have to recognize that we have a rapidly increasing national debt. A very unstable financial foundation. And you have all these things going on like the ISIS crisis that could very rapidly change things that are going on in our nation. And unless we begin to deal with these things in a comprehensive way, and in a logical way, there is no telling what could happen in just a matter of a couple of years. And particularly in a situation where we have a Senate and a Senate leader who has over 300 bills sitting on his desk will not bring them to the floor for a vote, thereby thwarting the will of the people. And this country was supposed to be a country where the government conformed to the will of the people, not the people conform to the will of the government.
As Think Progress noted, “The United States has held presidential elections every four years since 1788, despite a civil war, two world wars, and a great depression.
Carson may have come in a relatively close second at the recent Values Voters Summit, but no matter how much he fear mongers, and no matter how much Fox helps promote his candidacy, Carson's failure to become the 45th president of the United States almost certainly will not be because the elections get canceled.
