Comment: Ben Carson is a true self-made man

(See in situ)

Ben Carson is a true self-made man

He is a great example and role model to young people and his advice about education should be heeded. He knows by personal experience the importance of a thinking people. Why you guys have to go do the rabbit hole of what you believe and what you think he should believe is beyond me. The fact that he had the guts to stand up there and give a politically incorrect speech right in front of Obama and railing against what is truly the blight and bain of our country's situation - the horrid educational system, is what I applaud.

You realize if we had a thinking, educated people, we might have hope of getting out of the mess we are in. It does not matter what he believes about all of the other dribble, what he is preaching is revolutionary and he also happens to be black and has lived it. Obama hasn't a clue what being raised black truly means. This man does and look what he has accomplished and he doesn't believe in excuses and special privileges. Appreciate what he is instead of trying to fit him into your mold.

He has given a lot of people a lot of food for thought and I am thankful for that. He was a great inspiration to my son when I was homeschooling him and we read his book. Also, if you know anything about Seventh Day Adventists - their philosophy is revolutionary and don't go with the political system so he isn't part of any "club" as some of you are implying. Before you all go off on your Carson bashing, you might want to read some of his books and look into what he has accomplished in his career. Then come back and discuss who is Ben Carson.
