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.

As far as I understand race... Jews are Caucasians... White.  Their heritage originating in the Mid-East.  Israel is not the only nation and people being driven to accept a cashless system and the international banking system for settlement payments.

Israel is not a state supporter of Terrorism... it is an ally of the US in the war on terrorism. Banks provide financial services that are integral to our economy and burning them will collapse the system... period.  We don't need to burn banks we need to remove the corrupt ownership from banking... asserting our Government power to regulate banks and our currency.

As far as you understand the race Jews are Caucasians,White.. wrong... they were from UR, and most we very black or brown...:)

The descendants of Abraham are Caucasian... Period.  Arabs are an ethnic group within the Caucasian Race.   

I am not going to debate SCIENTIFIC FACT as if it is subject to TIF'isms and the delusional positions she takes.  In her mind, Hitler is a maligned hero ... not a deranged despot and mass murderer.

Well then shut up because Mary's grand grandfather, he is not white...:)

Gee... my third cousin on my mother's side had a friend who knew a man, who was friends with Pres. Nixon... who said Nixon was black... Bet you didn't know Nixon was black?

Israel absolutely will not follow in the footsteps of ISIS... Israel is firmly against state-supported terrorism.

You will have to get a grip Ronald..:)

 Rosie did not say that, she did a comparison...:)

But Rosie like me also, could not care much about of what you have to say...:)

LOL Tif....:)

No, Rosie said this:

"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."

She not only compared Israel with ISIS but stated Israel will FOLLOW the footsteps of ISIS aginst their banks...  saying Israel 'though (through) out history were very good at terrorism. 

Israel doesn't support State-sanctioned Terrorism... period.

Don't care, want to help share this video with my comment text every where: https://teapartyorg.ning.com/forum/topics/watch-the-judicial-watch-...

Ya da ya da ya da Ronald!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you are such a beauty... who can remain upset with you for long?  Smart, talented and on fire for her cause... go get em tiger.

I agree you and Rosie could care less about what others have to say... besides your dangerous... an armed feminist, newspaper editor, and pyromasticist, in Nazi drag.

You both certainly have a unique take on History...

Da!!!!!!!!!!!!

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
