Axios News reports that a Harris poll taken February 21-25 of over 2,000 adults indicates that Millennials and Generation Z are more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations. The poll, given exclusively to Axios, cites that 73% agreed that government should provide universal health care; 67% agreed that the government should provide tuition-free college; 43% support abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and nearly half, 49.6%, said they would prefer living in a socialist country. The poll shows that Gen Z and Millennials will be 37% of the voters in 2020 and their top issues are mass shootings, climate change, immigration policy, racial equality and healthcare.
This is dangerous for the personal liberties and religious freedom of every American. Socialism is the pathway to communism. In fact, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was a communist state. Communism in the 20th century was responsible for over 100 million deaths. It is the ruse of ruses in that socialist/communist leaders count on class warfare to get everyone to demand equality, pitting neighbor against neighbor, family against family, countrymen against countrymen until everyone is fighting. Then they take over and oppress the very people they claimed were disenfranchised while enriching themselves with wealth and power. Communism pulls everyone down to the level of slavery.
Even worse, the Democratic Party has become the socialist political party. Friday House Democrats voted to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections. Socialist John Lewis (D-GA), a leader in the 1960s civil rights movement, said, “We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in.” The Constitution requires only legal citizens to vote in federal elections, but you see what they are trying to do. The writing is on the wall that the old Democratic Party is the New Socialist Democratic Party as Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) launched his New Hampshire campaign Sunday insisting that his “radical” ideas are now embraced “across the board” by his party’s candidates.
The Communist Manifesto says, “But communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis.” Other linchpins of communism are enumerated in the Manifesto: 1) Abolition of property ownership, 2) a heavy progressive income tax, 3) abolition of all rights of inheritance, 4) confiscation of property, 5) centralization of credit, 6) centralization of transportation, 7) centrally planned economy, 8) obligation to work, 9) abolishing distinction between towns and country, and 10) a free education for children. Exodus 20:3 says, “Thou shalt have no other god’s before me.” When government replaces God, bad things happen–ask citizens of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua. Call to ACTION: Educate your children/grandchildren about socialism and communism. Influence them.
