With nothing much to their names, Ben and Curtis both grew up with no interest in their studies, Ben especially disliked them and had a hot temper to go along with his ignorance.

Ben Carson, from what I could see, has extremely powerful biblical morals and a level head about most everything. From what I have learned about Carson’s views on the five topics I have chosen, I think he would be a very good choice for President. He is willing to learn and get help in areas that he has insufficient knowledge. I think he approaches problems with caution and he has more than one idea for different plans that he has shared with our country, but again he is willing to get help where he is not strong. I believe Ben Carson could do a great job as president.
