“Opportunity has been replaced by despair. Embracing character, values, marriage and family has been ridiculed,” Carson wrote. “Government dependence has been substituted for self-reliance. And mediocrity has replaced excellence.”
“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 American dream is alive and well,” Carson wrote.
Considered a rising star in the conservative movement, Carson has implied that he’s open to running for president and proved he certainly isn’t shy about criticizing Obama. Carson, 61, who grew up in Detroit, says Obama is dangerously divisive. “It’s time for people to stand up and proclaim what they believe and stop being bullied!” Carson said recently at a Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC.
“I’ll let you know why I’m not a fan of political correctness. I hate political correctness [and] I will continue to defy the PC police who have tried in many cases to shut me up.”
Carson’s new conservative magazine for African-Americans has only been available for one week and yet I feel I’ve already heard enough.
