I have a friend who is a passionate supporter of Dr. Ben Carson.
Dr. Carson’s campaign just had its top three people resign, leaving the status of his campaign in doubt.
Nonetheless, Dr. Carson’s impressive resume’ shouldn’t be forgotten, as Tiffinay Compiano writes in today’s Des Moines Register:
“Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign strategies are about to go under the knife. As the third wealthiest Republican in the race and a conservative spender, it comes as no surprise that Carson would be anxious to do a business analysis on how his campaign dollars are being spent. You don’t put 8,000 kids through college by squandering money.
The Carson Scholars Fund is the name of the non-profit he and his wife started which seeks to combat the American education crisis by discovering potential and rewarding excellence in our nation’s youth through scholarship programs. I challenge you to name one other candidate with any such ambitious endeavor.
One would think 67 honorary doctorate degrees alone would qualify a person to lead the United States of America. But Carson’s fruits far surpass this measure.
Dr. Ben Carson is also a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (highest civilian honor given) and Spingarn medal from NAACP, ranked by Gallup in 2014 as one of the most admired men in America, selected by CNN and Time as one of the nation’s top 20 scientists, and by the Library of Congress as one of 89 “living-legends.”
Dr. Carson is truly a great American.
