Carson wants more mature debates for the generations to come. The Republican candidate appealed to reporters this Thursday that debates, in their current state, are not at all what they are supposed to be, but more of a cat and mouse game that everybody has to play and the winner is the man who looked less funny that everyone else (or in Trump’s case, funnier than everyone else.)
Ben Carson stated that “debates are supposed to be established to help the people get to know the candidate. What’s turned into is – gotcha! That’s not helpful to anybody”. And Carson is quite right about it. The point of every debate is to see who the most responsible candidate is and who has the appropriate tools to lead the country.
Ever since Trump stepped on the scene, debates have become more of an entertainment show than a “get to know who the right person is”. The scene is now a hilarious charade without substance and only because one man wants to play it his way. Politics are played one way: the smart way, with good arguments and substance, not with a big mouth and small loans of a million dollars.
But Trump is not the only one ruining the scene. Moderators have also proven to be unprofessional in their work. If you are going to look at the debate again, you will notice all the chattering coming from the moderators, who are in fact the ones that should keep quiet all the time and let the candidates state their points of view. Frankly, we do not know if the last debate was a presidential one or a moderator one.
Carson also had to suffer from this last debate as he, the candidate with the greatest numbers for the time being, got the least time awarded compared to the rest of the people who mostly have insignificant numbers. The bla bla was strong with these people and the man who actually had to say things was left outside. This is a perfect example of how disturbed the political scene is right now and it is a sign that we need change, change that Hillary Clinton or Ben Caron can bring to this country.
Carson wants more mature debates and not for the sake of his reputation or what he has to say, but for the dignity of our people. It is time we understood that political campaigns are not funny shows, they are not entertainment and they are not hosted so that a bunch of people with big mouths come and talk for the sake of talking. They are a means of deciding the future. And because America is the country that it is, we are not only deciding our future, but the future of the world as well.
