Boastful Ignorance on Display

Ben_Carson_ViewJust recently, I listened to a segment from the program, The View, in which Dr. Ben Carson was highlighted.  Since his stunning 2013 speech with President Obama in view, he has attracted a public following which recognizes his untapped leadership potential, along with his down to earth approach.  This eight minute segment on the View only enhanced his credentials.

In a nutshell, Dr. Carson’s medical experience and understanding of a future which is alien to our present day care coincides with his frank insight for what ails America in general.

Dr. Carson, in what will no doubt become his trademark, presented a clear, down to earth and practical assessment concerning the overall welfare debacle.  Basically, he itemized a brief list of handouts and freebies, all destined to stymie one’s individual initiative and spirit.

Carson basically condemned the present system as socially crippling, even to the point of enslavement, and counter to the proper role of government.  Instead of restricting the needy through a maize of stipends, a reversal of sorts is required that will encourage, educate and inspire people to be the best they can be.

This brought immediate applause from the audience, along with the expected response from The View’s famous welfare mother, Whoopie Goldberg.

Ms. Goldberg began with proudly stating that she too was at one time a welfare recipient and that, “very few people want to be on welfare.”  This began her show’s closing argument which left Dr. Carson unable to respond.  However, without realizing, Whoopie validated Dr. Carson’s beliefs to the point that his reply wasn’t even required.

Earlier in this debate, Dr. Carson was attempting to illustrate that the welfare system acts as a modern day version of slavery in that it strives to keep people from bettering themselves.  Whoopie’s statement inadvertently suggested the same.

Whoopie’s belief that very few “want to be on welfare,” actually supports the good Doctor’s position!  Without realizing, she just described a predicament of slavery.  If indeed a “few” actually are content with their situation, what is holding back the vast majority?  There are many forms of chains.  The easy way out often seems attractive, but there’s a cost to everything.  The decision to treat welfare as a way of life is a costly self imposed restriction of one’s potential.

Now Ms. Goldberg, with having experienced both sides of this issue, still chooses to endorse a scheme in which she fortunately was able to overcome. While her own words attests to the encroaching vines which this structure weaves, this blind endorsement from a former recipient is a systemic sampling to its sinister design.

Dr. Carson’s earlier statements correctly identified education as the best course in which to stem this debilitating life style.  Early on in one’s formative years, the original design of our Forefathers must be taught.  When such tenets become engrained, it naturally inspires and ignites one’s unlimited ambitions and abilities.

His formula is more than theory since he is living proof of the inspiration which motivated him to untold success.  His beginnings were of the struggling single mother within a backdrop of urban poverty.  He overcame, aided by her inspiration, guidance and love.  His story stands as a testament to what possibilities await us all.

Ms. Goldberg joins Dr. Carson as two who worked hard to overcome and have now tasted the fruits of their labors.  However, upon success, each have chosen opposite philosophies.  Dr. Carson wants equal opportunity for all Americans while Ms. Goldberg seems resigned to the fact that for most, what they want will never be.  How unappreciative can one become?

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
