I’ve got a new post at Reformation 21 in which I dissect Ben Carson’s endorsement of Donald Trump.

Trump’s lack of money from special interest groups will not ensure good decision making; in fact, it could hurt it. And President Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be the worst thing this country has experienced. It would be much worse if Americans consigned their values to the dustbin because they hope for some short-term political gain.
