A 2016 Pew Foundation poll found that 69 percent of voters under the age of 30 expressed “a willingness to vote for a socialist president,” and a 2015 “YouGov.com” poll revealed that 43 percent of young Americans between 18 had 29 had a “favorable” opinion of socialism” and prefer it to capitalism. Who says the public schools aren’t teaching the kids anything these days?
A very large segment of the younger generation obviously finds promises of “free” education, health care, and groceries promised by socialist political demagogues like Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton to be quite appealing. Just as obvious is that they are oblivious to the fact that socialism would destroy their economic future, and their children’s future, and strip them of their freedom, just as it has done wherever else it has been imposed.
At a Bernie Sanders rally in Green Bay, Wisc., a high school teacher admitted he indoctrinates his students into socialism:
Alex explains how socialism creates generations of domesticated populations, has elites that are exempt from the rules of the laws and control who distributes the taxes.
In his weekly address released on Saturday, President Barack Obama hailed the so-called auto industry bailout put together early in his first term that cost taxpayers billions.
Obama mentioned that critics called it “the road to socialism” and said despite those labels, he would “make that bet again” given the opportunity.
Seven years ago, the American auto industry was on the brink of collapse. Plants were closing. Hundreds of thousands of workers were getting laid off from jobs that had been their ticket to a middle-class life. And as the pain spread across the country, another one million Americans would have lost their jobs in the middle of the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes.
Some said it was too late to turn things around. But I refused to turn my back on so many of the workers that I’d met. Instead, I placed my bet on American workers. I placed my bet on American manufacturing. In exchange for help, we demanded responsibility. We said the auto industry would have to truly change, not just pretend that it did. We got labor and management to settle their differences. We got the industry to retool and restructure. Everyone had some skin in the game.
The nation’s largest health insurance provider said it lost money due to Obamacare’s disappointing enrollment and unintended consequences.
“The insurer’s withdrawal from the Obamacare exchanges would force nearly 550,000 Americans to find coverage from another provider,” USA Today reported. “UnitedHealth downgraded its earnings forecast, bemoaning low growth projections for Obamacare enrollment and blaming the federal health care law for giving individuals too much flexibility to change plans.”
“People who purchase insurance through the public exchanges are typically heavy users of their plans, draining insurers’ profits, analysts say.”
