“Given the economic stagnation, rising debt, out-of-control bureaucracy, and moral deterioration currently confronting the United States of America, Dr. Ben Carson’s One Nation is about the most optimistic book you will find at your neighborhood bookshop. Carson looks hopeful at society’s problems today, along with a set of answers. He is confident about America’s potential to reach a consensus on debt, welfare, and gay marriage topics. Carson is running for president of the United States. – The Blaze
One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future by Ben Carson [Download pdf Below]
I was invited to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in February of 2013, and I did so. When I stood just a few feet away from President Obama, my fellow Americans demanded that our nation returns to the ideas that made it possible for the United States to become the greatest nation in the world.
Many people in the country listened and responded to what was said, yet the downfall of our nation has persisted. The risk is higher than ever, and I have never before delivered a message with a greater sense of urgency than I have right now.
We have strayed far from the original vision of our founders as a result of our rapidly increasing debt and moral decline. In terms of fundamental education, we haven’t made much headway. The Affordable Care Act poses a risk to our health, our liberty, and our economic future. Elitism in the media and political correctness have both gotten out of hand.
Worst of all, it seems that we have lost the ability to discuss significant issues calmly and respectfully, regardless of which political party one belongs to or any other disagreements that may exist. To find solutions to our challenges, we need to work together.
I had no choice but to write this book after realizing that my grandkids’ future is in peril due to irresponsible spending, godless governance, and mean-spirited tactics to stifle opponents. I have made it my mission to provide a way to reverse the course of our collapse by appealing to every American’s decency and common sense.
If each of us does nothing and waits for someone else to take action, we will soon find ourselves in a hopeless situation. But I think that it is possible for the United States of America, with your assistance, to return to being “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
