A majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll.

In the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s “Annual Report on US Attitudes toward Socialism,” 58 percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.

The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.

Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, said the report shows millennials are “increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

    President Trump and the Koch Brothers haven’t been in charge for the last two gov’ts, the Democratic Party has been in charge and is the most corrupt political party the U.S. has ever had. Socialized healthcare is what brought communist Russia down. Healthcare costs became so high the socialized businesses and community farms couldn’t make enough money and pay enough taxes to cover their socialized healthcare system. You had to go through getting permission from doctors to get into a hospital and once you had the permission slip the nearest hospital had to take you. Eye surgery was done on a system like cars being made. Their health care is still behind the kind of advance care thanks to research and development in our capitalist system in the U.S. We have hospitals practically every other block in cities and can just walk into the emergency rooms because they have to accept you here. Farms were moved into community farms and couldn’t produce enough to feed the Russian people while in the U.S. we became fat due to farmers producing too much. Russia finally had to let the people have little gardens to feed themselves and they were allowed to sell what they overgrew. I remember the year Russia came to the U.S. brought millions of bushels of wheat to feed their people. These millennials need to be told this stuff. As for student loans the gov’t or communist party decided what job you got and if you got into college not you. When the wall was torn down the first thing the Russian schools did was start teaching English to every school kid because they saw the opportunity of capitalism and everybody owning cars and being able to travel and working at a job they might actually like. Education is free over here up to 18 but hey, you gotta study and get that education to get hired even at the lowest level. When the Russian gov’t puts you in a job the communist union you are automatically in tells you what hours and benefits you get where you stand on your feet all day without breaks because breaks are communist meetings to extoll the benefits of socialism/communism and hate of capitalism. You live in apartments building with one bathroom for the floor and the apartment buildings owned by the gov’t went on and on. And young marrieds waited forever to finally get an apartment because the gov’t didn’t build the buildings fast enough since everything had to be approved by the communist party. The communist high raking members got the nice department stores to shop in that had food while the average citizen stood in line for bread and whatever was left. Since people didn’t work because they got a check from the gov’t production slowed down while the U.S. capitalism was booming because people could get fired if they didn’t work for that paycheck. It was only when the democrats got in control of this country that jobs disappeared and taxes became so high on businesses they left the country to go to China. This is what these millennials need to be told but thanks to the democrats millennials will not know about the worse corruption in the world was under communism. If you disagreed with a communist you ended up in the Gulag, if you paid a communist you got something like extra food etc.

    The millennials live in La La Land, the tech world has given them immediate gratification, their education is one of revisionism, they lack grit, do not understand one lick of how this Republic came to be or why it is the world’s most important treasure, they think the lies of communism are the green grass on the other side of the hill…….they know so little, they are ripe for the picking……”We are all born ignorant but many work hard to remain stupid.”……BF

    I hope they are ready to do battle for their beliefs and Ideology, We always have been ready to defend ours.

    Not a surprise given that so many millennials are spoiled, entitled, ignorant, naive little brats.

    I guess when you are deep in debt because of student loans and you see a system rigged in favor of the rich you lose some faith in the capitalist system. When you look at other countries with socialized healthcare and education and see that people are living better lives our form of capitalism isn’t a appealing as it could be. If you look at people like Trump and the Koch Bro. and how they game the system in their favor it’s no wonder young educated people might not be in love with it. Don’t blame the education system, blame those that abuse the system after all look who has gained by the recovery, not the millennials. Look at the tax code they are trying to pass, who comes out the winners, not the millennials.

    Then let California secede, make that the socialist country ( it already is) and send them all there. Problem solved!
