Exposing The Fraud Of Socialism

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.

Excerpt:

People seem shocked that recent polls show millennials are enamored of socialism -- an economic system that reasonable and educated Americans have long known is disastrous. They shouldn't be; this has been a long time coming.

The latest survey by Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation shows that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist. Adding insult to injury, only 57% believe the Declaration of Independence "better guarantees freedom and equality" over "The Communist Manifesto." The worst part of this is that it is real, not a parody piece in "The Onion."

Now do you finally believe that our schools and universities, Hollywood and the liberal media are brainwashing our kids? Are you taking this seriously?

I'm taking it very seriously, which is why I devoted three of the 16 chapters of my just-released book, "Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Why the Democrats Must Not Win," to discussing socialism and capitalism. I cite earlier polls showing this same disturbing trend concerning young people's attitudes toward socialism.

A 2015 YouGov poll showed that 43% of Americans between 18 and 29 years of age had a favorable opinion of socialism and preferred it to capitalism. Then, in 2015, a Pew poll found that 69% of those under age 30 would be willing to vote for a socialist for president. Further, a Gallup poll revealed that only 45% of Americans ages 18 to 29 have a positive view of capitalism, while 51% have a positive view of socialism. No offense, but it's like a wave of stupid has washed ashore.

Significantly, these kids are not only drawn to socialism but also repelled by capitalism -- two distinct but related points. Their attraction to socialism partially stems from their aversion to capitalism. The leftist establishment has bombarded us for decades with socialist propaganda. Former Hillsdale College professor Burton Folsom notes that while America was founded on the idea of preserving individual liberties through limited government, many prominent American history textbook writers are strongly biased against America's free market tradition and believe that America must be liberated from predatory capitalists. These teachings have now yielded an abundance of poisonous fruit.

A 2018 study by the National Association of Scholars showed that some 40% of colleges in the United States have no Republican professors. "The political registration of full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors in top-tier liberal arts colleges is overwhelmingly Democratic," writes Mitchell Langbert. "Indeed, faculty political affiliations at 39 percent of the colleges in my sample are Republican free -- having zero Republicans." In the other 61% of schools, the ratio is "absurdly skewed against Republican affiliation and in favor of Democratic affiliation."

It is astonishing that an economic system that has enslaved and impoverished nation after nation and was responsible for more than 100 million murders in the 20th century is portrayed as utopian, and that capitalism, which has liberated hundreds of millions from poverty, is depicted as evil.

This.

My two children have been either the only GOP/Trump supporters in school mock voting (why they even do this is evil and obvious) or one of two or three, depending on the year.

This <censored> is real.

It's not just sad and/or infuriating, it's frightening to realize there are so many who would gladly establish socialism in America. The sheer ignorance required is mind-boggling.

It is amazing what you can accomplish when you remove God from government and schools and then put government in the place of God. Government as god operates on guilt, and guilt enslaves. God as God operates on forgiveness, and forgiveness liberates.

That's a +1 if ever I read one.

We used to have one; in fact, it's still visible at the lower right-hand corner of each post. If I recall correctly, it wasn't working well and Lisa chose to disable it.

I’m on my phone most of the time so I use the mobile display type, which doesn’t have most of these options available.... but it’s a lot easier to see and read!

I love my phone but my eyesight is horrible so I always prefer to use my laptop and my 26" external monitor. Of course, it's not particularly portable. :P

That, and you can’t exactly continue to use it after the boarding doors have been closed! :lol:
