How Does Someone Get Into West Point?
United States Military Academy – West Point Nominations
There has been a lot of discussion in the news that Ben Carson never did receive a scholarship to West Point. And that is true but… since he never applied it is certainly understandable that thinking there was a scholarship to be had in light of how someone is typically admitted to college doesn’t bother me in the least.
I think that Ben Carson underestimated the power of the media to twist everything that a person can possible twist about what you’ve said. Past and present.
Now, apparently the way you do get into West Point has to do with who is going to back you. Do I believe that Ben Carson had an upper echelon backer. Sure do. The reason I believe this is because one of my children went to a school program that was for intelligent children not living up to their potential. We were not financially well to do. Quite the opposite. Someone had to recommend my child to get into the program. Sometimes it isn’t just what you know, but “who” you know. Yes, in the real world these things happen.
One more thing I wanted to add…It is so peculiar to me that several people have brought up Ben Carson’s name to me. Not even knowing that he is a 7th Day Adventist. People genuinely like him. They like what he has to say. I think he resonates with Americans. I believe he’s a good man.
Will he be President one day? That I don’t know. But we certainly live in interesting times to say the least. The end-times, to be sure.
I know that there has to be a catalyst to bring the 10 Commandments and the Sabbath in particular into question. Carson as President may be that catalyst? Or, just the fact that he’s running? He is now a household name.
