MILLENNIALS REJECT CAPITALISM SHOULD AMERICA DO THE SAME?

America is great in part because of capitalism. However, the Millennials reject the free enterprise system but offer nothing in it's place. Therefore, the government will fill that void.   Do you agree? 

Chalk it up to the dismal job public education does teaching young people about history, economics, and politics.

From The Washington Post:

In an apparent rejection of the basic principles of the U.S. economy, a new poll shows that most young people do not support capitalism.

The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent said they support it.

It isn’t clear that the young people in the poll would prefer some alternative system, though. Just 33 percent said they supported socialism. The survey had a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.

The survey, however, is misleading. The United States economy is not capitalist in the true sense of the word.

Instead, it is a crony capitalist economic system dominated by large multinational corporations that buy politicians, establish monopolies, and rely on state intervention to eliminate competitors and gain special privileges in regard to regulation and taxation.

It may also be viewed as a corporatist system, a partnership between private corporations and the state. The father of modern fascism, Benito Mussolini, described fascism as a corporatist system.

True capitalism is based on laissez-faire economics, a free market, private enterprise and, contrary to the system in place today, a strict separation of state and business.

“A purely capitalist economy ought to have the following characteristics: private ownership of the means of production and capital; low levels of taxation and regulation; competition unfettered by subsidies, bailouts, and protectionism; and the free flow of goods, services, and capital both domestically and internationally,” writes Marian L. Tupy. “Lastly, and here the government does have a crucial role to play, a capitalist economy ought to have an independent and efficacious judiciary that protects life, liberty, and property, and punishes fraud and theft.”

America should reject the rest of the world

AMERICA FIRST  1

Wouldn't you think for America to be first is for us to have more liberty?

Our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America was built on Capitalism and the Holy Bible!!

Love Always and Shalom Everyone,

First off I do not listen and read anything that Alex Jones writes as this op-ed above.He scares me like Scientology.But this definition was good ,I think.

It is not about the definition, it is about the Millennials being so damned propagandized/brainwashed as to be neutered of their own opinions.This sets up all kinds of voids for the filling of their pastry heads with the wrong  fillings. AND DONT THINK THAT THE ONES DOING THIS DONT KNOW IT...

It is high time for all Americans to get involved in the PTA again and a fervent involvement. A in their face involvement. A we will not take no for an answer involvement....We also need to be in the Pizza places and beer pubs and burger joints to 'grass roots' their brains and purge them of this malevolence... 

The survey may be flawed but it proves an important point which is that academia, in collusion with government and media, have effectively indoctrinated multiple generations of our youth while we thought they were at school getting an education. Instead, they were being brainwashed by the enemies of America, those enemies being liberals, communists, and socialists, all of whom HATE America and its historical adherence to capitalism.

This will be a challenge to reverse for as a salesman of many years, I have found that the biggest challenge I faced in sales, after establishing trust, was to change a person's mind or attitude. Once people have a belief system in place, they are reluctant to change as they have developed a commitment to their beliefs. Any effort to change that belief system can threaten their world so they naturally resist change. It is why communists wanted to gain control of our educational system for they knew that if they could create a system whereby children were taught from an early age that capitalism is evil, whites are racist, and government is good, the children would accept that indoctrination without even questioning those premises.

This survey proves that their indoctrination has been extremely effective for we now have a large portion of our youth who actually believe that BS to the point where they will defy any effort to correct the lies they were fed, even to the point of becoming violent in their defense as OWS has proven repeatedly.

In the end, we must remove all communists, socialists, and liberals from positions of power for they have demonstrated by their actions that they are all committed to the destruction of our society and our economy.  If we do not remove them from positions of authority and power, they will continue to indoctrinate our children until one day our own children will turn on us as the Hitler Jugen turned on their parents, family, and friends after being effectively brainwashed by the lies and propaganda of Goebels and Hitler.

Mike, you hit several good points in that but I would add fascism to the list also making it all the authoritarians out there.

I wouldn't say whites are racist but I would say people are but it's not really racism which is the problem, it's authoritarian collectivism. Racism is when one race works as a collective or tries to create a collective of hate or anger towards another race (group). About the only difference with Authoritarian collectivism is race is not an issue but it's still about hate or anger towards another group.

John, clearly we have similar perceptions of those enemies of America which is important.  Keep in touch.

Who is going to pay for all those illegal aliens if no one has any money to pay taxes? 

HERE'S A SCARY THOUGHT; What will the generation be like following the millennials!? And what will become of America!?

As a nation we are going to be tested this November on what we want to believe. 

Do we want to believe the Government is the answer, if so vote for Hillary (Hildabeast) 

Do we believe in rugged individualism, if so vote for Trump (Trumpster) 

Therefore, is the government your master or are you your master? 

Tea Party says: F*ck the government, we rule! 

I am a millennial and the problem starts at the school level... When I was in school EVERYTHING was liberal biased... Naturally I identified as a democrat and even "supported" Obama as he was the "cool" choice... it wasn't til just this year (first year without school) I could look at the issues and saw just how wrong everything I learned was... My generation is young and only has what they learned in schools to base their opinions off of...

For me once I looked at history my while views completely changed... The notion that capitalism is bad is exactly what you would think if you attended our schools! Everything in terms of politics was a lie... The good news is if someone like me can wake up there is lots of hope for my generation to wake up and see past the lies that we grew up believing...

All I needed to know to become conservative was the fact EVERY great moment in our nations history was done under strong "conservative" leadership... I put that in quotation marks because I think its a misconception... To me what we believe as tea party patriots is the Constitutional Values in which ALLOW minorities, misfits, and everyday people like myself to be voicing my opinion this very minute and being heard.

Back to the point.... Schools tell us that capitalism is about greed... I was taught to see the people who built this country as money hungry pigs when infact it was through the jobs they created that gave the citizens of this country the means to support their families.. I was taught conservative beliefs were corrupt because they suported business yet was never taught that through businesses THATS where my parents and their parents got the most social benefits...

Bottom line capitalism is the single greatest thing and IS the American Dream... While hopeful my generation wakes up I am also sympathetic as this is how we were taught..

ALERT ALERT

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
