Dr. Ben Carson explained in an interview with World Net Daily that the nation’s founders intended that “our system of government and freedom is dependent on a well-informed and educated populace.”
He went on to say that “People who don’t have a good base of knowledge can be easily manipulated” by slick politicians and dishonest media.
Dr. Carson said that society is more interested in the amount of sugar in a soft-drink than the ever-growing laundry list of scandals in America. “When we’ve got IRS going on, and Benghazi going on, and NSA going on, and Fast and Furious going on, and a dozen other things going on, and we’re talking about a trademark for the Redskins.”
