Kurt Wallace: This is Kurt Wallace and our guest today on Rare is Dr. Ben Carson. His new book “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future,” Dr. Carson thanks for being with us today on Rare.

Ben Carson: It is my pleasure, thank you

Kurt Wallace: It’s great to have you on and I’ve been looking forward to interviewing you. But I have to ask first Eric Cantor – he lost his primary to a challenger Dave Brat who supported him in the past, but Brat running on a platform of free-market and fiscal sanity. What does this say about the influence of libertarians and the Tea Party? What are we seeing here?

Ben Carson: Well, this is not terribly surprising to me because I’ve been traveling all over the country and seeing what people are saying and what people are thinking. People are almost in a state of panic about whats going on in our country. And both Republicans and Democrats seem to get to Washington and then forget about the people and forget about the real issues and continue down the pathway of increasing government size and increasing spending and really not listening to their constituents. And even some of the conservatives who are there do the same thing, they become more concerned about their power and their positions then they do about the people. And I think in Cantor’s case he’s talking about you know some of these programs that are equated to amnesty, but I don’t think he’s actually advocating amnesty but really not making the distinction and you couple that with the large number of youngsters coming over the border in the last couple days. It was a perfect storm for Brat.

Kurt Wallace: So immigration is probably where Brat won?

Ben Carson: That’s exactly right, it was a perfect storm for him. But it should tell the conservatives what I and several people have been talking about for a long time. You got to have some spine! People are looking for people with spine, not jelly-spine but steel spines who will stand up to the progressive agenda which is destroying America. That why I think you are going to see a huge change in November. It’s going to be just like last night. People are going to be scratching their head – what happened here?

Kurt Wallace: Tell us about your book One Nation?

Ben Carson: Well, the reason its been titled One Nation is a lot of people recognize that we the American people are not each others enemies. And I strength really lies and our unity but there are those elements of a society that want to divide us and that drive wedges into every possible crack. War on women, income wars, age wars, race wars – you name it – there’s a war on it. And all of it is straight out of the pages of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky divide and conquer.

And that’s one of the reasons that in the book that we emphasize so strongly the importance of people becoming informed. So, people should read for half and hour everyday something new, something they don’t know already. Algebra, economics, history, American history, world history, Russian history – read about communist nations. I think it’s very enlightening to read the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Saul Alinsky. The thing you can see exactly what’s going on in this country, you can see the plan that they hatched to overcome America knowing they couldn’t do it militarily. And it’s much more difficult for people to hoist these nefarious on us when we know what they’re doing.

Kurt Wallace: Dr. Carson, thanks for being with us today on Rare.

Ben Carson: It has been an absolute pleasure, thank you.
