Inspiration(from The Patriot Post)


Dr. Benjamin Carson

Editor's Note: Neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson gave a wonderful speech at the annual National Prayer Breakfast. Here are a few excerpts:

"[W]e've reached the point where people are afraid to actually talk about what they want to say because somebody might be offended. ... We've got to get over this sensitivity. ... [Political correctness] is dangerous. Because, you see, this country -- one of the founding principles was freedom of thought and freedom of expression. And it muffles people. It puts a muzzle on them. And at the same time, it keeps people from discussing important issues while the fabric of this society is being changed. And we cannot fall for that trick. ... [I]n 1831 Alexis de Toqueville came to study America. The Europeans were fascinated. How could a fledgling nation, barely 50 years old, already be competing with them on virtually every level? This was impossible. De Toqueville was going to sort it out and he looked at our government and he was duly impressed by the three branches of government.... He said, 'Wow, this is really something,' but then he said, 'but let me look at their educational system' and he was blown away. See, anybody who had finished the second grade was completely literate. He could find a mountain man on the outskirts of society who could read the newspaper and have a political discussion, could tell him how the government worked. ... [T]he people who founded this Nation said that our system of government was designed for a well-informed and educated populace, and when they become less informed, they become vulnerable. Think about that. ... Why is it so important that we educate our people? Because we don't want to go down the same pathway as so many pinnacle nations that have preceded us. I think particularly about ancient Rome. Very powerful. Nobody could even challenge them militarily, but what happened to them? They destroyed themselves from within. Moral decay, fiscal irresponsibility. They destroyed themselves. If you don't think that can happen to America, you get out your books and you start reading, but you know, we can fix it. ... All we need to do is remember what our real responsibilities are so that we can solve the problems." --Dr. Benjamin Carson


Man, talking about stand up! Right in front of the Prez! Just slapped him right across the face imo!

As long as he doesn't have a string of sexual harassment complaints or mistresses in his past he will do very well as either a Democrat or Republican candidate. Very impressive speech given next to the President.

They can just make it up, Doesnt have to be true, doesnt have to be any proof, doesnt even have to make sense,just someone claiming it happened and the MSM reporting it, is all it takes for people to lap it up as must be true.

Maybe they will go with muder on Dr. Carson.
He has addmited he tried to stab someone when he was 14yrs old. I'm sure they can turn it into him being a major drug dealer and it was a drug deal that went bad and he killed three people using a AR-15, and raped thier sister while high on coke, who was also one of his ho's he was pimping out, right after he rob the local drug store where he beat a 80 yr old mans head in.
