As some Democrats look for ways to run away from the reality of their political baggage Gallup comes along and shoots them in the kneecaps.
For the first time in Gallup’s measurement over the past decade, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism.
The problem? The indoctrination is working. But the professional left isn’t ready to come out of the closet quite yet.
Fewer Than Half of Young Americans View Capitalism Positively
Americans aged 18 to 29 are as positive about socialism (51%) as they are about capitalism (45%). This represents a 12-point decline in young adults’ positive views of capitalism in just the past two years and a marked shift since 2010, when 68% viewed it positively.
Some would argue that this isn’t anything you can’t fix with a real job that includes a paycheck from which the costs of “socialism” are deducted weekly.
The Free ‘s**t’ narrative takes on a whole new meaning when you discover whose ‘s***t’ they are taking to make it free for someone else. Socialism requires an exponential reduction in the value of your labor as more and more gets siphoned off to pay for government largesse.
The professional left knows this, which is why their university training facilities have been pumping out ‘graduates’ with useless degrees. Former students who lack the skills to do anything productive. Pleebs for the bureaucratic class, the barrier wall of paper pushers who protect politicians from taking responsibility.
The system is flawed. Let’s get to work fixing the system. But that’s how it got bad. You “fixed it” so nothing would get done at great expense while you ‘manage’ manage massive takings and growing misery from on high.
That’s socialism. And Democrats think it’s groovy. Which means Republicans need to come out in force in every election to keep it at bay.
