Dr. Carson rose to political prominence last year after speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast.
In that address, Dr. Carson spoke of his disdain for political correctness and his anxiety about the moral decay in America, and confronted the issue of debt and our fiscal policy — then he took on Obamacare.
As President Obama watched from just a few feet away, Dr. Carson revealed his plan for health insurance for all. In less than two minutes he outlined his common-sense approach to health savings accounts — providing health coverage for all Americans without government intervention.
The media has been buzzing ever since.
Commentators from Rush Limbaugh to Sean Hannity praised the speech as “speaking truth to power.”
A Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Ben Carson for President” said that Dr. Carson “may not be politically correct, but he’s closer to correct than we’ve heard in years.”

Dr. Ben Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan. His parents divorced when he was 8 years old. He says he struggled in school for many years, but that changed when he discovered a love for reading.
He went on to attend Yale University and then earned his medical degree at the University of Michigan.
Dr. Carson was a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics, and the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He made national headlines in 1987 when he led a 70-member surgical team and successfully separated conjoined twins.
He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush in 2008.
Politically, Dr. Carson says he’s an independent.
He also says, he “doesn’t care” who supports him as long as he has the support of God.
But, as Dr. Carson continues to speak about personal responsibility, the value of education, and the dangers posed by political correctness to freedom of expression, he is picking up support across the country from American voters who have grown frustrated with the current direction of this nation.
Dr. Carson warns of the political correct “police” and “media bullies” who are drowning out conservative views from the public square.
He says secularism is rising and Christians are suffering persecution.
His mission is to restore America to the ideals of the Founding Fathers.
