Dear Editor:

It's pretty easy for me to write this letter since I am a common sense man and it is usually easy to communicate with other common sense people.

Now that having been said, I would like to make the comment that Dr. Ben Carson would not fit in well in Washington due to his common sense approach to everyday life. He came from a poor family background, worked hard and studied hard to get to the point where he is today. His mom apparently taught him the value of  life and a good education and worked hard to help him become the man he is today.

His value of life is apparently very noticeable as he is a man who is apparently much respected in his field of medicine. I believe he would risk loosing his own life to help even a stranger in danger. His comment about others jumping in to subdue a killer to stop others from being killed has caused some (what I consider very ignorant) people to try and destroy him. Dr. Carson probably has more sense in his little finger

than his critics have in their whole body.

I can't help but wonder what these nuts think of military personnel who risk their lives fighting for freedom not just for themselves but for people they will never know in their life. What about the firemen and policemen who put their lives on the line every time an alarm comes in.

It amazes me as to how ignorant people can be. I wonder what these nuts think of the three young men in France  who put their lives at risk to stop an animal from killing, perhaps even a child. 

Now, some people want to condemn a man who no doubt is putting his own life in danger by wanting to become president at a most dangerous time in history. No doubt those who condemn him are politicians who are willing to lie on their Mama in order to become president. I truly hope these comments help Dr. Carson and propel him to the top. I myself have high regards for a man willing to speak the truth and would defend such a person with such high regards for human life. Also a greater quality he possess is the fact He is not afraid to mention he is a Christian.

One more thing, James David Caldwell our Attorney General, I believe will be and should be re-elected.

Thank You,

Rudy Hernandez
