America’s Growing Approval Of Socialism Is A Rejection Of Freedom

issuesinsights.com

“Seven in 10 millennials say they would vote for a socialist candidate, while 64% of Generation Z told pollsters last year it is “somewhat/extremely likely” they’d vote for a socialist, according to a YouGov-Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation poll taken last fall.”

Good thing the millennials kiddos can’t be bothered to vote much.

I was told gen z was based WTF

America will never be a socialist country! us

Socialized Heathcare (and UBI) really aren't attractive without strict immigration/border control. I am far from being a lefty, but I also believe in maintaining a strong society. As much as I would like to see every citizen protected from medically induced bankruptcy, the core of the problem can't even be tackled until non-citizens are discouraged/unallowed to claim any benefits.

Well if you look at almost any 1st and even some 3rd world nations, things like socialized healthcare for all age groups are still a thing. Does that mean they're a bunch of potato eating communist stooges? No, of course not. I just think american boomers and other generations who grew up during the height of the cold war received a healthy dose of brain washing when it comes to any sort of progressive economy that uses some form of wealth redistribution to insure that you don't go bankrupt due to medical hardship.

I'd be interested in what the actual questioning of this survey looks like. When you take out the word socialism, most Americans agree that the principles of socialized healthcare are good.

And speaking to socialized healthcare, implementing Canadas national health system in the US would actually save the average taxpayer money.

Interesting, mentioning Canada’s socialized system. Just a coupe data points:

Basic demographics. With a rapidly aging population and low birth rates below replacement level, having less taxpayers to finance more and more older care recipients, the math doesn’t work.

No brainwashing, just math.
