19-Yr-Old Just Compared Obama To Carson, Discovers Exactly What NO Lib Wants To See
Markeece Young, 19, who describes himself as a “former Democrat now Conservative Republican,” has put together a meme to answer the question whether presidential candidate Ben Carson, as opposed to President Obama, is somehow a traitor to his race by advocating for conservative principles.

As reported by Western Journalism, Carson directly addressed the question of whether he is an “Uncle Tom” in August. “I’d say they need to actually listen, not only to what I’m saying, but look at my life and look at what’s been done,” the retired neurosurgeon told TheBlaze. “It is the things that are done that elevate people, not things that impress people and make them dependent.”
Carson was asked why, traditionally, Democrats have gotten most of the African American vote and what the Republican Party can do to change that.
“Well, I think it’s because the Democratic Party has ascribed to the Lyndon Johnson philosophy. I don’t know if you know, but Lyndon Johnson said, ‘If you give those N-words such and such, they’ll vote for us for the next 200 years,'” the candidate responded.
“What the Republican Party needs to do is come out and discuss more the kinds of relationships and the programs that will actually bring people out of poverty, that will give them the ability to use their God-given talents to rise, rather than to simply be satisfied in a dependent position in society,” Carson added.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient gained national political prominence for his articulation of conservative principles at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013, with Barack Obama sitting only feet away.
He warned the United States to be wary of going the way of Rome, which destroyed itself from within through “moral decay” and “fiscal irresponsibility.”
The former neuro-surgeon went on to discuss the Biblical principle of the tithe as being a way a nation should tax its citizens, noting it does not necessarily have to be 10 percent, but should be proportional. “When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the Universe, God, and He’s given us a system. It’s called tithe. Now we don’t necessarily have to do it 10% but it’s principle,” said Carson. “He didn’t say, if your crops fail, don’t give me any tithes. He didn’t say, if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithes. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 Billion dollars you put in a Billion. You make $10 you put in $1.”
