Kurt Wallace: This is Kurt Wallace and our guest today on Rare is Dr. Ben Carson. His new book is called “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: Well, you are being recruited by organizations like RunBenRun.com wanting you to jump into the presidential race in 2016. You are not a politician, why do you think people are attracted or gravitated to you with such excitment?

Ben Carson: Primarily because I’m talking about common sense. Things that we all know are correct but are afraid to say, for the most part, have been beaten into submission. And becasue I’m not going to yeild to them. To political correctness or to the progressive left no matter what they do. Because, you know, there is such a thing as right and wrong. And that’s one of the things that propelled us as a nation. To the pinnacle of the world in record time. We recognized that we had values and principles that guide our lives. And as we begin to throw those away for the sake of political correctness and as we begin to try to conform to everybody else in the world–we lose our exceptionalism. They should be conforming to us. Not us trying to accomidate them. That doesn’t mean that we can’t be kind and courteous to other people. But there is an American way of life and an American culture. And we should be proud of it. And we don’t have to compromise it so that everybody else can feel comfortable. If they want to be part of us then they need to be like we are.

Kurt Wallace: I know a lot of people have asked you ‘are you going to run for president’ my question to you is do you want to run for president? Do you want to be the president?

Ben Carson: Well, the second question is very easy–the answer is no. Why would any sane person want to do that. I mean, have you noticed that everybody who goes in that office after about three years looks like they’ve been there 20 years?

Kurt Wallace: As a doctor you wouldn’t recommend things like that?

Ben Carson: It certainly was not my intention to move into the political realm. I found myself thrust there after the National Prayer breakfast speech. But you know, my preference would be for someone to come along who really wants to do that and understands the Constitution. And understands personal freedom, responsibility. The place of the government versus the place of the people. The place of the states versus the place of the federal government. Understands business and how to get moving by deregulating in terms of the excessive regulations not the ones that are necessary. And knows how to get things done. I mean we need to reform the tax code, it’s absolutely absurd. And it’s a blanket over economic progess.

Kurt Wallace: Dr. Carson if you could change one just one single thing with a snap of a finger in Washington what would that one single thing be?

Dr. Ben Carson: I would probably want a balanced budget.

Kurt Wallace: Great answer!

Ben Carson: It would have to be a guiding principle.

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 Kar 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.
