Dr. Ben Carson believes that America is facing a constitutional crisis because too many of our politicians and judges ignore the common sense in our founding document. In this important new book, he shows why the Constitution isn’t brain surgery and is accessible to every citizen, and he offers clarity on controversial subjects, such as . . .
“The framers of our Constitution intended that these kinds of issues be handled by the states. Judges should not be able to overturn the decisions made by the citizens of each state.”
THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS:
“This right can in no way be violated, and any attempt to erode it should be vigorously resisted. Those who insist that tyranny could never come to America should read about how it came to so many other places that also felt safe.”
“Article 2 specifically states that the president ‘shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’ It does not say that the laws with which he agrees shall be faithfully executed. The executive branch cannot pick and choose."
“The founders gave Congress a great deal of latitude when it came to taxes. Unfortunately, this vagueness has been abused by our government in a way that would horrify the founders.”
FREEDOM OF RELIGION:
“Some claim that the sight of a Bible or a cross causes them so much psychological distress that it impinges upon their freedom. It is important that we learn to be reasonable and tolerant of everyone’s beliefs, without going to such extremes that we compromise everyone’s rights.”
