USA: Progressives are 'heartless and uncaring' says Carson in S. Carolina

United States, Greenville, South Carolina
February 19, 2016 at 05:54 GMT +00:00 · Published

Republican Candidate Ben Carson spoke at the Conservative Review Presidential Forum in Greenville, South Carolina on Thursday.

Carson slammed denigrators that allegedly claim America is the source of evil, saying "if we are so bad, why so many people are trying to get in here and nobody trying to escape?" He went on to add "obviously it's a pretty nice place and the real question is - can we keep it? Because I believe that there is an American way, there is an American dream. Have you noticed that there is no other dream? What other country has a dream? Other countries have nightmares but nobody has a dream."

Carson also criticised progressive people's portrayal of conservatives as "heartless uncaring people" claiming that true uncaring people are those "who pet everybody on their head and say 'there, there you poor little thing, I am gonna take care of all your needs, give you food stamps and housing subsidies and health care' and it makes them dependent on other people. That is not compassion. What that is, is taking advantage."

"If we get another progressive president, and they get two, three or four Supreme court picks, we all are gonna have to find a new country to live in. So rather than allow that to happen, and rather than to put our children in that position we need to start thinking about what we are going to do. We also need to understand that unless we do the critical things, we're gonna lose America." concluded Carson.According to latest polls on Republican candidates, Ted Cruz leads with 28 percent, followed by Donald Trump at 26 percent. Trailing behind them are Marco Rubio - 17 percent, John Kasich - 11 percent, Ben Carson - 10 percent and Jeb Bush - 4 percent.
