Ben Carson: Democrats Might Cancel 2016 Elections Over ‘Anarchy’

Ben Carson, a likely candidate for the 2016 Republican nomination, spoke with Alan Colmes and warned that there may not be a 2016 election because of the way the Democrats are acting.

Carson said that the election could be cancelled because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid won’t “bring these 358 bills that are sitting on his desk to a vote,” which, as RightWingWatch notes, has nothing to do with the general election.

“If in fact we continue to have all these decrees being made the way they’re being made, if in fact we don’t fight the kind of war that needs to be fought in order to really put an end to the threat that is brought on ISIS, if we continue along a pathway of financial irresponsibility, if we continue along a path of envy, greed, hatred, what happened with Occupy Wall Street will be a cakewalk compared to what will begin to happen in this country,” Carson told Colmes.

Colmes asked Carson, “What do you mean though when you say there won’t be an election in 2016?”

“There may be so much anarchy going on,” Carson replied.

“Anarchy?” Colmes asked. “You think really we risk having an anarchic America to the point where elections may be put on hold or some kind of emergency is declared with such anarchy that there wouldn’t be a presidential election in a couple of years.”

“I don’t want to find out, I really don’t want to find out,” Carson said. “I don’t want to continue down this pathway that we are going down. This pathway where everything is framed in a political sense and our representatives are not working for the people, they’re working for their party.”

    Are we seriously considering this man as a candidate for President? Hopefully the Republican Party can come up with someone else, or Hillary (or whoever) will just walk back into the White House.

      The Republican Party has NO viable candidates. Welcome back, President Clinton.

    Just when I think the Republicans can’t get any crazier, they make a liar out of me!
