New Book, One Nation, Calls On Left And Right To Toss Aside Unanimity of Party Speech And Thought And Concentrate On Respectful Dialogue For Real Problem Solving
“The John’s Hopkins neurosurgeon may not be politically correct, but he’s closer to correct than we’ve heard in years.” — The Wall Street Journal
(BlackNews.com) — In his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future, famed Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and political pundit, Dr. Ben Carson delivers a way out of the American decline—appealing to every American’s decency and common sense.
In One Nation (Sentinel, May 20), the sequel to their #1 New York Times bestseller, America the Beautiful, Dr. and Mrs. Carson offer a refreshing and bold plan to halt the country’s spiral into fiscal and moral decay. Avoiding the political correctness of politicians and the animosity of Washington lawyers, Dr. Carson calls for respectful problem-solving skills he honed as a surgeon, and fearlessly tackles tough issues such as education, health care, family values, race relations, taxes, charity, and the role of faith in public life.
Dr. Carson believes America has inexplicably lost the ability to discuss important issues calmly and respectfully regardless of party affiliation or other differences. One Nation thoughtfully suggests practical ways to overcome the needless bickering and impasse of progress. As a surgeon rather than a politician, Dr. Carson cares deeply about what works—not whether someone has an (R) or a (D) after their name.
Dr. Carson understands that Americans must come together. One Nation explains that by respecting others it’s possible to engage in intelligent conversation about differences of opinion without becoming enemies, eventually allowing us to move forward through meaningful compromise.
One Nation is a clarion call to return to our historic culture of personal responsibility in order to solve the expanding list of America’s ills, including:
* Growing debt and the resulting burdens of fiscal uncertainty
* Deteriorating morals that have driven America far from the founders’ intent
* Failing to make significant progress in basic education
* Resolving the Obamacare mess—a threat to health, liberty, and financial stability
* Tempering media elitism and political correctness and its chilling effects on a meaningful national dialogue
Dr. Carson believes America’s best days are ahead, but contends these serious issues must first be resolved with reason and compromise from both sides of the political aisle.
In his journey from poverty to the top of his field, Dr. Carson has lived the American dream. He shows how we can save that dream for future generations by restoring a moral, informed citizenry that will support “one nation, under God, indivisible.”
