Exposing the Fraud of Socialism


David Limbaugh


{ townhall.com } ~ 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.

The left works 24/7 to disseminate its destructive ideas. Chrissy Clark writes for The Federalist that Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, two prominent economics professors from the University of California, Berkeley, have been instrumental in designing economic policy for Democratic presidential hopefuls Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren and commie-Bernie Sanders. Despite their dubious calculations on such socialistic proposals as "Medicare for All," the liberal media is working hand in hand with them to spread their propaganda -- including the oft-repeated canard that the wealthiest Americans have the lowest tax rates. This type of coordinated effort, argues Clark, could "affect the way young people view economics for the rest of their lives."

Here's the point: Leftists have to lie to persuade people that socialism works and capitalism is evil. At some point, we must successfully make the case that the left must be judged by its policy failures rather than its supposedly good intentions. Here's the other point: Leftists are seemingly more committed to their goals of fundamentally transforming America than conservatives are to preserving it.

One of the purposes of my book is to alert our side as to how urgent our situation has become and how critical the 2020 presidential and congressional elections are for us. Evidence abounds that many Americans are losing sight of the unique gloriousness of America's founding ideas. I try to give patriots abundant ammunition to make our case for preserving these ideas and rejecting the insane ideas coming from the left, from socialism, to gender, to race, to abortion, to immigration, to the Constitution and much more.

If we are concerned, as we claim to be, about bequeathing to our children the free and prosperous America we have enjoyed, we better get to work.

It's not a waive of stupid... it is a waive of greed... a pandemic of covetousness and irresponsible social behavior.  It is a pounding surf, in an ocean of hedonistic, immoral, lifestyles, feed by the theft of others' property.

Socialism and its big brother Communism... both permit the individual to hide from personal responsibility and accountability for their lives and actions.  The nature of the socialist collective allows the individual to shed any form of personal responsibility and accountability... substituting individual responsibility for the collective promise, that the 'state' will provide everything for nothing. The waive of the ultimate 'free-lunch'... only it isn't free.

The Socialist and Communist ideology promotes... the immoral concept that the wealth and property of others can... no... must be requisitioned for the mutual benefit of the collective... providing a free lunch... no, make that breakfast, lunch, and dinner... to all, without payment or personal labor.  All one needs to do in a socialist state is vote socialist and the Party begins... at least until the state runs out of everyone else's money.

How can anyone believe and trust that socialist and communist is the way to go. Don's these people have any brains or seen other country that have tried and failed under these concepts. History will tell us that socialist and communist are worth a pile of poo. 

Rudy ...

You asked:  "How can anyone believe and trust that socialist and communism (t) is the way to go?

The answer to that question is found in another question: Why do people want something for nothing?

Historically mankind is selfish... looking to raid another's pantry rather than to stock their own.  Ben Franklin famously put it this way... "When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic..."

See: https://www.godreads.com/quotes/88664-when-the-people-find-that-the...

The people have discovered they can 'vote themselves money'... checks, drawn on the US Treasury for their own needs. That people have been told the Republic will now furnish them a free lunch... only, the check for that lunch... is now due.... and with that check, the American Dream is now turning into the American nightmare.

History is replete with failed experiments in self-government... the underlying nemesis for such a dream has been mankind's proclivity for self-indulgence through a weak moral character.... wanting... nay, expecting... others to provide them with a living.  And, if they don't provide them with a living... criminal conduct and wars follow.

Don't blame it on history, the Khazar Jews of Russia, did ya know during WW2 that over 90% of the Jewish people that migrated to Israel were Russian...:)

Those who fail to learn from history... are doomed to repeat it. 

Sorrowfully, mankind consistently fails to learn from history... His tale is one of a roller coaster ride, filled with repeated wars and strife.  The simple fact is that mankind is lost without the moral underpinning of God's Word ... without which... he would utterly destroy himself.

Man is to blame for his failures... history is merely a road map of mankind's turbulent journey, often over the same dangerous terrain.  If one would only read the map, such hazards could be avoided... but they don't.  Like most men ... they refuse to ask for directions or to check the map... (history) when lost.

I did not know the Russian Khazar Jews were so...GAY....:) Socialism and its big brother Communism...:)

Tif I don't believe that. Thats foolish.

On another note, can you clear out my name now from not being blocked from others here.

 My people are from Israel, out of the 200,000 that migrate into Israel were in fact Russian.

Tiffany blocked you, what a crime, I also block members here from sending me emails.

Rosie

And other places around this world.

 The world surrounds America with the UN Global Migration Compact, the NGO's of Rothschild Banking system, live with and die as a people, or fight it within a civil war, and you may die anyway.

 

 They are forcing cashless on the Israel people, are they happy with that?

NO

One thing is noted though out history that the Israeli Jews, we are very good at terrorism, it is not to hard to follow the footsteps of ISIS against their banks.

Rock and the Hard Place.

'Rock and the Hard Place.' is true  the U.S. and Israel will go hand and hand in fighting terrorism.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
