Hat-tip American Thinker. Countries where communist regimes had lasted for as long as four decades and left a permanent mark on local population possess different experiences and understanding of the world affairs from those of their western counterparts. They have, for example, good knowledge of what socialism is and how extreme some left-wing policies can actually be in real life. This is why when you talk to immigrants from Eastern Europe they are almost invariably conservative. They have lived life under socialists or communists and they don’t like the way our country is headed.
According to a 2018 Gallup poll the majority of 18-29 year-olds view Socialism favorably (hat-tip Prager University). This should scare the hell out of all of us because it means they are listening the Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ of the world. They are falling for total government support & the free stuff. Make that the promised free stuff because anyone with 2 brains cells (BTW, can you believe Ocasio Cortez graduated from Boston college with a degree in economics??) knows that Medicare for all means Medicare for none!
Here’s a good place to start: The Three Values that Make America Great, The American Trinity.
More from Prager University later, but if you want to throw them a little love, you can right here. BTW did you know PragerU was suing Google & YouTube for discrimination and censoring their conservative videos. It’s a battle for our culture and our country folks. No kidding.
