A lot of what Carson spoke about was more libertarian. When will the people realize that the Progressive movement is a cynical game. The leaders of the Progressive movement know their ideas won't do what they promised but it does what they want. With the levers of power in their hands, the Progressives can funnel money and power to themselves and their friends and allies. This is what they want. Why do you think that they are not shocked that their ideas did not work. They obfuscate and rationalize why it did not work and fall back on trying the same tack but on a larger scale. Why? More money and power for them

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news.

Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins medical institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since.

Even if you didn't like the substance of what Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech made for great political theater....
