This is why we need to take back the schools. The leftist brainwashing and indoctrination is a dangerous thing, folks. This is no different than the Hitler youth.
According to the latest poll conducted between January 16-18, either college or the move out of adolescence is twisting the minds of young people, as 61% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 are open to “socialism” while only 58% reacted positively to “capitalism.”
The SurveyMonkey online poll of 2,777 U.S. adults showed that the young adults are the only age group that favored socialism over capitalism; among Americans between the ages of 25 and 34, 58% reacted positively to capitalism, while 51% had the same feelings about socialism. The swing toward capitalism was more and more pronounced as the respondents got older; among those aged 35-44 the advantage was 56%-38%; among those aged 45-54 the edge was 60%-32%; among those aged 55-64 the difference was 63%-29%, and finally, among those aged 65 and over the advantage for capitalism was 69%-27%.
A Gallup poll that was taken last August found the percentage of Democrats who viewed capitalism positively plunged from 56% in 2016 to 47% in 2018 while 57% of Democrats viewed socialism positively.
I think a field trip to Venezuela is needed for all these brain-dead millennial’s. Now not all millennial’s are lacking brain-cells so we can’t group everyone together. There is a lot of smart young people in this country that don’t buy the leftist agenda. It is truly important for us to be educating young people. We have let the left brainwash young people for years.
We can guarantee most of these young people that are in favor of socialism have no idea what socialism really means. Some actually think socialism means being social with people. This is how the left recruits. It all comes down to taking over the schools and brainwashing them into thinking everything with America is evil.
Tuition-free higher education is a worthwhile investment with profound benefits to society.

Take these kids to Venezuela and let them see what socialism really does to the people. I bet you they wouldn’t be in favor of it.

Last August, a professor of economics at George Mason University, pointed out the devastating effect colleges have on young people:
One might be tempted to argue that the growing contempt for liberty and the lack of civility stem from the election of Donald Trump. That’s entirely wrong. The lack of civility and indoctrination of our young people have been going on for decades. UCLA history professor Mary Corey told her class: “Capitalism isn’t a lie on purpose. It’s just a lie.” She added that capitalists “are swine. … They’re bastard people.” An English professor at Montclair State University, in New Jersey, told his students, “Conservatism champions racism, exploitation and imperialist war.
An ethnic studies professor at California State University, Northridge and Pasadena City College teaches that “the role of students and teachers in ethnic studies is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” The University of California, Santa Barbara’s school of education emailed its faculty members to ask them to consider classroom options concerning the Iraq War, suggesting they excuse students from class to attend anti-war events and give them extra credit for writing about it. Rodney Swanson, a UCLA economics professor, told his class, “The United States of America, backed by facts, is the greediest and most selfish country in the world.”
