Time for True Americans to Step Up & Kill Off Socialism in the USA

Opinion

A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country.
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.

USA – -(Ammoland.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?

Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Why the Democrats Must Not Win
Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Why the Democrats Must Not Win

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 Warren and 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.

I see a lot of really good dialogue here and some not so good (tomcat). From all I’ve heard, seen and read, we are almost definitely headed for our second civil war. I would say closer to our second revolutionary war as we’re going to be fighting those with a mindset closer to the British at that time than the Confederates. I don’t know how it will turn out. I would hope we can preserve our nation in it’s entirety… But I seriously doubt it. We have “states” leaning so far left, Kalifornia among others, as to be completely different… Read more »

The list of 45 communist goals contained in the ~1958 book “Naked Communist” was read into the Congressional Record (Appendix, pp. A34-A35) by U.S. Congressman Albert S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida, on January 10, 1963. This is the plan to overtake America without firing a shot. As Russian Premier Nitka Khrushchev once said, “……America will fall into our hands like over ripe fruit.” List is no longer a “TO DO” list, but, today, is a “DONE” checklist. -Take over one or both of the major political parties. DONE -Take over the media. DONE -Take over the entertainment industry, DONE -Take… Read more »

First off, do away with the 10th plank. What is that? FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL CHILDREN IN GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS. Karl Marx must have thought that was VERY IMPORTANT. Then do away with the funding of government schools through the 1st plank. ABOLITION OF ALL RIGHT TO PRIVATE PROPERTY and the APPLICATION OF ALL RENT TO PUBLIC PURPOSE. What is that? That is “PROPERTY TAXES”. which is what they use to fund the 10th plank. Yes, they call it RENT we call it property taxes but the end result is exactly the same. Then do away with the 2nd plan.

David, so what do you propose we do? What I have found to be helpful is one on one conversation. This provides enough privacy so that there’s no pressure externally coming from the outside groups on the left. But we have to leave the comfort of being with those who agree with us and go into the trenches where people who haven’t differentiated from the mass propaganda and dialogue. They have to have a safe place to be able to develop the capacity to think and reason because they don’t know how to do this. Many are also terrified of… Read more »

Socialism is fine. Who here is on or has a relatives on “Social” Security? Medicare/Medicaid, Veterans Administration Benefits, Food Stamps, attends Public Schools ect. All those are Socialism programs. Every developed country has massive Socialism programs. Canada, UK, France, Germany ect. Communism is bad. No one is advancing Communism. The youth of the United States do want more social programs. Like Canada, UK, France Germany, Finland, Sweden ect. But, we do not want Communism. Socialism dose not equal Communism. You can say they are the same as much as you want but they are not!

The only people who benefit from Socialism is the people in charge and they look out for only the leftist that are the same as them ! Socialism has never worked anywhere throughout history. These same people are the ones calling for the guns of every american citizen so they can control everyone in the near future if their plan works. We know Trump will win in 2020, but hopefully after that another good republican will step up so we can keep our future bright . By then hopefully we have gotten rid of the ridiculous leftist ways !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Socialism is a step toward Communism/Marxism. Medicare, Veteran’s Benefits and Social Security are paid for by the persons who are supposed to get the benefit. Too many people obtain many of these benefits without putting in to them. This needs to stop,

Socialism is voted in by fools who think that voting to steal is ok. Communism is forced in at gunpoint. The only major difference is how it is instituted.

Back in the years that I served in the U.S. Army, in black boots, the threat was and still is communism, socialism and terrorism. I, along with everyone else who served, swore an oath to defend the nation, the people and the constitution of the U.S.A. against ALL enemies foreign and domestic. Socialism, communism and terrorism were things in nations that were far away. I saw for myself just how evil and hopeless life was and still is in those countries.

Socialism has not worked one single time in the entire event of human history. It promises you the Sun moon and stars and gives only grief, death, BS and starvation. At 68 as a kid in HS we were taught all about it in history class, the who, where, and what happened, it was a very grim picture indeed. Now the liberals have taken it out of the schools and try to sell the kids a shiny new car with no wheels, no engine, and no way to get out once they get in, telling them this is the future… Read more »

At age 83, I am prepared to take it to the streets in defense of our founding principles. As a Marine, I took an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC”. The veterans I meet weekly at the VA (where I volunteer) are 90-95% of the same mind set. These are times as dangerous as when the Declaration of Independence was written. We may need to respond with equal fury as Americans did back then.

Yes, Ralph, you are absolutely correct. Force will indeed be required to set this country back on proper track. Socialists (Democrats, Leftists, Progressives, or whatever the hell they call themselves this week) are – by ANY sane definition [rational, reasonable, political, legal, moral, ethical, societal, or practical definition!] truly ARE “domestic enemies” of the United States. Leftists self-admittedly intend to change this country from a Constitutional Republic into a Socialist Regime. That is unquestionable, absolute, and inarguable. Our (veterans’ and law enforcement’s) oath – a permanent vow of personal honor – has no expiration date, no “sunset clause.” We must… Read more »

OK, Tomkat, (Intentional misspelling, the Tomcat was a great aircraft) you’ve said that several times. Care to prove it? VA is certainly govt provided, but is generally considered deferred payment for services rendered. Certain services like prosthetic, research, and PTSD are essential to treat badly injured former servicemen/women and not widely duplicated in civilian medicine. BTW, there are something like 8 levels of eligibility and anything below 50% disabled requires payment. I am registered with the VA but the only service I receive is an annual physical, which is required to stay in the system. I pay for my own… Read more »

Excellent article, The truth be told, the number of people slaughtered by their own governments in the 20th century is closer to 260 million. What did all those people have in common, you may ask? They were first disarmed by those same governments. Source Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Please download their documentary ‘Innocence Betrayed.’

If I have to be the one point this out again, so be it. The reason those on the right are going to lose, is because, wait for it: religion. Yes. Even the Christian churches are turning against your right to keep and bear arms, and have been for a long time now. The more modern version of this can be traced to WWII when Pope Pious XI sided with Hitler because he said that he would make it a law that every country they conquered would have to tithe 10% of their earnings, or die to set the example.… Read more »

Everyone should become aware of historical, including current, use of religion for propaganda and control of populations. There are leaders within all of our religious organizations who do teach the evil of firearms to their followers. This at least as strongly as the heads of our academy, and media owners. Religious indoctrination can retard perception of reality as does liberals imprinting people into libtards.

People exposed to religious doctrine are as “grass roots” as it gets. We need to be aware of the fertilizer applied. Especially those who have had it amply applied.

OK. Let’s point out the flaws first. First, Republican does not equal conservative nor does it equal civil libertarian. More often than not the affiliation “republican” equals progressive. Progressives are not friends of liberty. Secondly, like most republicans Limbaugh ignores the source of the current troubles. That source is a Democratic Party completely taken over by the former Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and their Rosemary’s baby, the Weathermen. Don’t believe me? Look at some of the most prominent names in theory development for the DNC. Bill Ayers…………………………. the list goes on. These folks have been Marxist/Leninists from the… Read more »

The growth of communism in America comes as no surprise. Labor unions are founded on communist principles. The K-12 American education system is staffed with far left wing democrats, and socialists who are communists in hiding. Colleges are filled with communist professors. And the American people have been asleep. Hollywood has been hard core left for decades as has the arts. Millineals are the children of workers who lost their jobs to globalization and who blame capitalism for their parents job losses and their lost opportunities. They are the pajama boys and girls of America. These young communists see China… Read more »

If you actually made any of the parts for yourself, you are then a gunsmith, I agree with Mark at Anvil/C&Rsenal there. One who assembles a firearm, is an armorer. One who can create the parts, as well as just assemble them, is a gunsmith. Welcome to the fold! I’m more of a machinist than a gunsmith myself, mostly due to the nature of where I live. In a County the size of Yorkshire with only 7K people, there just isn’t enough gunsmithing work to stay busy.

@HB – Do you make your own powder? Never done it myself, but understand basic BP is a simple recipe. As with everything, the devil is in the details with lower power and unintended detonation as possible difficulties. In cataclysmic situation, being able to make ammo could be a major benefit – but is severely limited unless you can make primers, powder and cases along with cast bullets. My guess is that powder and primers would be the biggest sticking points. Cataclysmic situations could include something as simple as the CA ammo laws spreading to other states or the federal… Read more »

Brainwashing involves a long period of time with exclusive access to the chosen victim, without interference from the victims family and/or friends. This is why brainwashers tend to choose the retarded and/or mentally ill as their victims.
