Over the past decade, most of us have heard or read dozens of reports of how America’s education system, especially at the college level, has been brainwashing students against America and capitalism.
Not that long ago, a survey revealed that 44% of millennials preferred socialism over capitalism.
They have been taught that capitalism and free enterprise is the evil of the world and that it hurts many and makes only a few people rich.
However, as brainwashed as students seem, all may not be lost, as a recent survey revealed that most students actually admitted that President Trump was good for the economy.
(Campus Reform) – Last week, President Obama stirred controversy after giving a speech where he told attendees that credit for the historically strong U.S. economy should go to him, and not President Trump.
After accusing Trump of being a “threat to our democracy,” Obama went on to say “When you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started,” alluding to his own role in the economic upturn.
President Trump responded quickly, telling supporters “He was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that’s happening. It wasn’t him.”
So who deserves credit for how well the economy is performing?
Campus Reform headed to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan to ask students for their opinions…
I’ve had the opportunity to speak with several students who support socialism and denounce capitalism.
I pointed out that their having a car, cell phone, nice clothes and more, were the result of nearly 250 years of capitalism and free enterprise.
I then challenged them to look at the quality of life in many socialist countries like Venezuela, where out of control inflation is rapidly destroying the nation.
I then point them to some of the eastern European countries that were under socialist rule for decades and then ask them, which system they would prefer to live in and they always admit our system here in America.
