Dr. Ben Carson Has Book Signing Monday

New Book Is One Nation

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Dr. Ben Carson will sign his new book, One Nation, in Chattanooga at Books-A-Million on Monday at 7:30 p.m. at 5230 Highway 153.

Review for Dr. Ben Carson, by Vernon Robinson, Janis Smith and Finley Knowles:

Dr. Benjamin (Ben) Carson launched himself onto the political scene at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.  The talk delivered by Dr. Carson at the televised breakfast stunned America. Dr. Carson boldly and unapologetically discussed the type of nation the United States should aspire to be.  He took a stand against political correctness and specific policies of the Obama administration, including the Affordable Care Act, better known as “Obamacare,” and the progressive income tax. He went further however, offering solutions to these problems, refusing to be just another complaining voice. 

The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee believes Dr. Carson must seek the Oval Office to ensure America’s future prosperity.  We have witnessed Dr. Carson’s ability to unify and energize center-right coalitions through his promotion of commonsense policies.  Dr. Carson is the great unifier in a far too polarized political climate.  He has demonstrated an ability to both understand the complexities of political policy and to articulate those policies to the average American voter.  Dr. Carson is the right leader to heal our country and save the Republic. 

Dr. Carson’s new book, One Nation: What we can all do to Save America’s Future, inspires Americans to hope and work courageously towards a prosperous future. Dr. Carson believes political correctness has only promoted disunity in our nation. Priority is given to tiptoeing around feelings rather than solving problems.  Dr. Carson emphasizes the importance of compassion between groups with different interests and beliefs. He explains Americans should be as free to express and listen to dissenting opinions as they are to express majority opinions. Open and respectful conversations will help Americans make more informed decisions about their future. 

As we talk to people in Chattanooga we hear a clamoring for Dr. Carson to seriously consider candidacy for President in 2016.  Dr. Carson’s intellectual, relational and solution-oriented positions on issues that burden our country are causing a groundswell of citizens urging Dr. Carson option.

This exceptional country is at a crossroads. Together we can stop its decline into bitter disunity. We can rise once again. We can again become a beacon of hope, that shining city upon the hill of gold. Who better to be at the helm of that charge than Dr. Carson who embodies the American spirit and has lived the American dream?  

Join the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee in supporting Dr. Ben Carson’s run for the Oval Office by signing the “National Draft Ben Carson for President Petition” at RunBenRun.org and join us at the book tour stop at Books-A-Million on 153.

Together let us embark on a great crusade to save our Republic and heal our nation. Let the clamoring begin. 

Vernon Robinson is the campaign director of the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee. Finley Knowles and Janis Smith are Hamilton County residents and two of 12,000 draft Carson volunteers.
