Dr. Ben Carson was on Your World with Neil Cavuto to discuss the president’s upcoming State of the Union Address. Carson said the president should use the opportunity to explain the difference between capitalism and communism.
“First of all, maybe he could use the State of the Union Address to educate people on the difference between capitalism and communism. And, then ask them which system would they like. I think that it would be eye-opening to him… We need to get rid of this ‘what can you do for me’ attitude and recapture the can-do attitude that made America into a great nation.”

It may be and eye-opening experience.
President Barack Obama plans to make income inequality a focus of his January 28 State of the Union address, but Dr. Ben Carson thinks he should contrast economic theories instead.
Obama should use his address to Congress to educate people on the difference between capitalism and communism,” and then ask them which system would they like,” Carson said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”
The public’s response would likely be “eye-opening” to Obama, Carson said.
A new Fox News poll shows that only 13 percent of Americans are “angry” about income inequality and think the government should be involved in correcting it. Another 21 percent agree it is a problem, but don’t think it is the government’s responsibility to solve. And 62 percent say that’s just “how things work.”
