A Message from Dr. Ben Carson

from Ben Carson:

“America is the land of dreams, and it has fulfilled the dreams of so many people from so many places. As a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. And by working hard, embracing my mother’s values and seizing opportunity, I was able to become a neurosurgeon. But I worry that today’s generations have been lulled into a complacency that is destroying the promise of The Dream.

The ruling elite have convinced too many young adults today that it’s OK to stay at home and live in your parents’ basements playing video games or aimlessly roaming the night streets with friends. After all, you can get a monthly check, a free cell phone and health insurance from Uncle Sam for doing nothing. Opportunity has been replaced by despair. Embracing character, values, marriage and family has been ridiculed. Government dependence has been substituted for self-reliance. And mediocrity has eschewed excellence.

I want you to join me today in demolishing this culture of failure and standing up to the media elite, who for too long have treated black Americans as a monolithic bloc addicted to a single political dogma. We need a new media source that embraces hard work, moral character, family values, good education and self-reliance and inspires the next generation with role models who have cast off the chains of mediocre expectations and proven that the America dream is alive and well.

This is why I have joined forces with friends of mine like Armstrong Williams, Rev. A.R. Bernard, Juan Williams and a few others to create American CurrentSee, a new digital magazine that gets delivered every Sunday to your email inbox and works on your computer, smart phone or tablet. It aims to arm us for this bout by boldly tackling the adverse dependency on entitlement programs through demonstrating how big government’s well-intentioned nanny state has created lasting pathologies like broken families, overtaxed businesses, underperformance in our schools and crime-ridden neighborhoods. Most importantly, American CurrentSee will serve as a catalyst inspiring you to embrace a new envisioning of economic opportunity, moral leadership and freedom from a suffocating government.

I love the last stanza of our national anthem. But I also know that in order to be free, first you must be brave. Be brave. Sign up today for American CurrentSee and together let’s demolish the tired old dogmas, free today’s generations from dependency and mediocrity and build a better America.

Your friend,

Dr. Ben Carson”

  1. I agree with Dr. Carson because the majority of society are afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Society does need help because people do not think for themselves and need education to become successful individuals.

  2. Elise G. Richardson

    Dr. Carson does make some eye opening points, such as people feeling like they don’t have that much of voice due to pc police, etc. And how gay marriage couples should not have “extra” rights, and how health care should be in the hands of Americans not the government.

  3. I wish I would have watched this earlier on in the semester or when it had been posted. This video was very inspirational because Dr. Ben Carson was very passionate with his speech. If he were to run for president, he would surely have my vote. I would want him as the president of the united states with all the topics his was talking about. I believe that he would get the united states in a better status than in it is now.

  4. Dr Carson made many good points and is very passionate about what he speaks. Anytime you listen to someone with such passion, you can’t help but pay attention. How will he make the changes he wants to see. His last point on encouraging each other may be exactly what we need.

  5. Dr. Ben Carson is a wonderful speaker and an inspiration to many of us. Work hard, believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything. I agree with many of his points especially about “how education is the key” and Obama-care. Our healthcare should be in the hands of the people and not the government. I don’t however agree with his point on gay marriage. Everyone should have the right to marry whoever they want. LGBT’s should have the same equal rights. It’s not “extra”rights.

  6. Dr. Ben Carson is a very intelligent man and I agree with most if not all his views on politics and social issues, I’m particularly keen if he would run for president because I think he would make for a great candidate. It’s good to see someone like Dr. Ben Carson who caries all of those values still in the political arena making a difference and leaving the impact that he is.

  7. Dr. Ben Carson seems to be a phenomenal man.
    I agree with many things he is saying.
    I wonder how it feels to have accomplished so much and to still have a sense of logic and reasoning.
    He is very down to earth.

    • The Republicans have put passed many bills in the House of Representatives, but Haary Reid refuses to bring them to the floor of the senate and then says the Republicans are not cooperating with the Democrats and President Obama. Ben Carson is in the forefront of the improvements and many people want him to run for Presidnt in 2016. If you notice in his letter sent to me, he has a new free online magazine and directions to get this publication by email are in the post. Sign up and you will be an informed voter on Obamacare.

  8. I get pride out of hearing this man talk, pride in a man who started with nothing but turned it and made it in to something, from being a nobody but ending up a somebody. A America man.

  9. Ben carson sounds like the typical Anti-Obama. I dislike his irony too, not the man i’d like to support. I do prasie his knowledge yet don’t see him as politican. However I do like his statements about gay marriage they shouldnt be allowed to “extra” rights as they can’t change a defintion. I should write my defintion essay on marriage!

    • I do like Dr Carson’s demeanor when it comes to improving oneself with the assets that are available and going back and others build that self confidence to do the same. I understand that he wants to change or do away with Obamacare, but he didn’t offer an actual replacement. He didn’t make mention on how many people who’s lives have been saved because of its implication.

  10. This speech by Dr. Ben Carson is truly inspirational. I like how he urges for a society “that embraces hard work, moral character, family values, good education and self-reliance.”

  11. The mediocrity of society is a major societal issue that may be summarized in one and only quote. The quote was stated by a man of the name Robert Kiyosaki. The quote is “The richest people in the world build neyworks; everyone else is trained to look for work”. We must break free from these chains and pursue a greater cause.
