(Tea Party 247) – If you’ve been paying attention to the news in America over the last decade or so, then you’ve likely noticed an alarming trend unfolding before our eyes that demonstrates the future of liberty in this country is in a whole lot of danger.
Kids, the future of our nation, are growing up in government public schools where they are being indoctrinated with progressive ideology that is shifting them toward socialism at an alarming rate. Kids these days are actually advocating for more government interference into their personal lives, wanting the system to provide cradle-to-the-grave care through bloated entitlement programs and universal health care.
Now, a new poll has been released that states that a terrifyingly high rate of young Americans would happily vote for a socialist candidate for president.
So this is how liberty dies…
Via Summit News:
A new poll conducted by Rasmussen has discovered that 42% of Americans aged 18 to 39 would happily vote for a socialist presidential candidate.
“Forty-one percent (41%) of Democrats say they would vote for a presidential candidate who identifies himself or herself as a socialist, but only 19% of GOP voters and 16% of unaffiliateds agree,” Rasmussen notes.
Americans in that younger age group are also twice as likely to prefer socialism to capitalism, according to the findings.
The finding that almost a fifth of Republicans would support a socialist presidential candidate comes a day after President Trump again vowed that the US would never become a socialist country under his watch.
The findings in the latest poll are not isolated, given that two previous surveys this year have uncovered similar sentiments.
In March, a Harris poll revealed that almost 50 percent of young Americans would like to live under a socialist government.
The Same poll also found that two thirds of all Americans believe the government should provide universal healthcare, with over half again saying that it should provide tuition-free college.
A further Gallup poll from May found that 47% of all Americans would vote for a socialist presidential candidate. The poll noted that among Democrats, the support for socialism is even higher, with 70% declaring it would be better for America.
Young Americans might feel differently if Starbucks disappeared and their iPhones quickly run out of batteries with no electricity to charge them. Bread lines also aren’t so cool.
Senator Rand Paul issued a Thanksgiving message Thursday, with a telling reminder that the first Thanksgiving “only happened when the pilgrims rejected socialism.”
Happy Thanksgiving! Take this day to be thankful for friends and family and don’t forget the first Thanksgiving only happened when the pilgrims rejected socialism.

We hear the radical left all the time talking about how the greatest threat to our national security is climate change. This is borderline insane and is evidence that a mental illness is at the root of most liberal thinking.
The truth is, socialism is the biggest threat to our national security. What’s worse is this is not an outside threat from some foreign country that wants to invade ours and wipe out our culture. It’s a battle for the heart and soul for America from within her own borders. That makes the fight even more critical and, at times, more sinister.
The enemies of liberty are our friends, neighbors, and co-workers. This means that the battle to preserve our country and its values will mean lost and destroyed relationships, lost job opportunities, and alienation, similar to what the founders went through when birthing our nation.
Pray for strength to stand boldly in these times, but also work toward removing the federal government from the public education system. We need our children to be taught how to think, not what to think.
