Dr. Benjamin Solomon Carson is seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination for president of the United States. He is the kind of man the Founders envisioned serving in public office as the leader of our nation.
Like Ronald Reagan, his message is one of goodwill and hope for all Americans. Ben Carson is inspiring citizens to get involved in the political process again.
He is committed to the U.S. Constitution and to freedom. He is a man of faith and traditional values. He is a model for our youth.
Ben Carson’s goal is to return common sense economics, honesty, constitutional practice, peace through strength, traditional values, liberty and justice for all.
Ben Carson has proven strong leadership experience, incredible personal accomplishment, and a clear vision for America’s future. He has a solid base of trust in minority communities. As president he will create the opportunities for black, Hispanic, Asian and white Americans to escape poverty.
He ran a multi-hundred million dollar division of Johns Hopkins University Hospital. He is well known and respected as a ground-breaking and world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon.
He gave the 2013 keynote address at the National Prayer Breakfast in which he revealed his ability to explain complicated issues in simple terms that Americans can understand. This speech has been viewed on YouTube by over 4.3 million people. A movie, “Gifted Hands,” about the life of Ben Carson is also on YouTube.
Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama offered him the position of surgeon general. He is the recipient of the the Spingarn Medal, NAACP’S highest award. In 2001, the Library of Congress selected him as one of the nation’s 89 “Living Legends.” He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award. He has 38 honorary doctorate degrees. In a 2014 Gallup poll, he was found to be the sixth most admired man in America.
Ben Carson promotes the things that unite us: love of country, faith in God, belief in fairness, a desire for justice, common decency, civil discourse, generosity, courage and opportunity for all.
