Capitalism vs. SocialismA Cuban-American journalist whose parents fled Fidel Castro's regime knows firsthand what could happen if Democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez get their way.

During his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump addressed the rising tide of socialism within the Democratic Party:

Trump: "Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence – not government coercion, domination and control. We are born fee, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country."

Maria Elvira Salazar is a television journalist and a former Republican congressional candidate whose parents were political refugees from Cuba. During an appearance on Fox & Friends Thursday, she expressed her concerns about the direction of the Democratic Party.

"We have to be very concerned that one of the major political parties in this country is trying to glorify the benefits of socialism," she stated. "Socialism is one of the most perverse and evil systems that the human race has ever known, besides slavery."

She described the problems that socialism brings to a society:

"Socialism takes away or destroys the concept that you reap what you sow. It destroys the concept that you are responsible for your actions. It destroys those who want to produce wealth for the benefits of society. It takes it away from them and gives that wealth to those who did not earn it or deserve it."

When informed that 40 percent of the Democrats think socialism is a good idea, Salazar reacted with alarm.

"When I hear that the new face of the Democratic Party is Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez – I'm sure she has great intentions [and] that she really wants the best for the country," said the bilingual journalist. "But she has no idea what she's really advocating for.

"She drank the Kool Aid just like [Senator] Bernie Sanders said a few years ago that Venezuela had created the 'socialist paradise.'"
