11% say Communism is better than U.S. system
Politicons- Politically Conservative ^ | March 16th | Henry D'Andrea

Posted on 03/16/2011 8:35:17 PM PDT by conservativeforpalin

What? Are you kidding me? No, I’m not. A new Rasmussen survey shows that 11% believe a Communist system is morally superior than the current U.S. system.

1. Is the United States system of politics and economics morally superior to communism or is communism morally superior to the United States system of politics and economics?

77% U. S. system is morally superior 11% Communism is morally superior 13% Not Sure

So according to 11% of those surveyed, a Communist system is better than Freedom, Capitalism, and the ability to be an idiot and vote for Communism. Though taking a “wild guess,” it was probably the Liberals who chose Communism compared to freedom, or possibly President Obama and his cabinet. Also 13% undecided? Really? Why do 24% of those who didn’t answer the U.S. system even live in America?

Don’t worry it gets more interesting:

If I were among the 11% I’d be long gone to Cuba or N. Korea by now. Why stay in a “morally inferior” system when one doesn’t have to? So be gone, bolsheviks.

I have seen left wing freaks post their unabashed support for Communism and then with the ultimate effrontery, challenge their readers, saying, “Why should we fear an IDEA?”

Keep in mind that according to a Gallop(?) poll, 20% of Americans self identify themselves as “liberals”. Given that, I’m surprised the results weren’t higher.

The 11% should move to Cuba and put their lives where their mouths are.

The 13% of undecideds should be put on a rocket an shot into space since they are obviously total morons.

I'm actually surprised it's only 11%, I figured it would be at least 20%, just look at some of the far left. 11% really isn't too bad, you could probably get that many who believe the earth is flat or Gnomes really exist...

I am not surprised.
The education system in America has been run by Communist for
quite some time now.
I would like to take some of these brain dead idiots over to
Slovakia, where I lived for about 7 years.
I would take them to a monument, recently erected, that list the names of those that were shot as they tried to swim the Danube to freedom in Austria, on the other bank.

In a communist country, you can check in, but you can not check out.

If they pick beautiful, tropical Cuba, we could just use the originally one-way boats in Florida that came from there. I’d have to save a bit myself if they pick North Korea, China, or South Africa (Communist Party in coalition with the ANC).

Considering that we live in a nation where more people can repeat the latest screed by Charlie Sheen than can name more than a dozen state capitals, I’m not surprised.

"This August 16th marks the 25th anniversary of the official death of Elvis Presley, but eight percent of respondents in a recent FOX News/Opinion Dynamics poll say they believe there is a chance that Elvis could be alive. Eighty-one percent of the respondents think people who believe Elvis may be alive are crazy and 11 percent are not sure whether The King may still be around or not."

I’d bet a dollar to a donut that this 11% bunch of freaks is made up of the “College Students” Gone Wild crowd and newly arrived “immigrants” who came here only for the freebies. Americans would never say this.

I've heard similar stats before, glad it isn't growing. I wouldn't be too surprised if there are a lot of people in that study who have no idea what communism is besides redistribution and people like a guy I knew who kinda liked the whole idea but admitted it was entirely imposable due to human nature. He voted GOP here and there, good guy and kind of a character.

There are PLENTY of those leftist whackjobs on Youtube, of course they are not necessarily US residents, but plenty of Russian, Chinese, etc. hard-core Leninists and Stalinists...There are a LOT of very FREAKY people out there! Don’t hear too much from Castro’s Cuba though...I guess they’re not allowed to proclaim their admiration of Marx!/s

Well then, 11% of the people in that sample don't know history. Or maybe they don't know statistics very well. Although it is pretty easy to understand that communism/socialism has a 100% failure rate in creating happy, prosperous, liberal, and free societies. No matter how bad you are at statistics or history, that simple fact should ring through even the thickest skull.

Communism/socialism sucks, it is an epic fail. It does not work. It never has worked. It can never work. Technology doesn't matter. Enlightenment doesn't matter. Who is in charge doesn't matter. Socialism just plain does not work, period. It has been tried numerous times and always, always fails. Why anyone would embarrass themselves by promoting it I have no idea. Why not promote other ideas that universally suck, like slavery (which socialism is not far off from), or eugenics, or a flat-Earth...

Socialism, has there ever been an idea as widely held that was then proven wrong time and time again in such an embarrassingly overwhelming fashion?

I would like to see the breakdown between men and women in this survey.
Then by age.
Then by ethnic origin.
Then take the same survey of people that got out of the USSR 30 years ago and compare.
The schools have failed if they haven’t taught that the Berlin Wall was to keep the people in and not stop us from invading. If they take the time to look at some older photos it’s clear which way the machine guns were pointing.

You're right - I'd kick in a grand to relocate anyone of voting age who wants to go to a "socialist workers paradise" outside our borders. On one condition: it is a one way ticket, you can never come back with some dumb-a** notion of "Well, socialism wasn't what I thought it would be in abc. It would've worked there but for xyz. I think it could work in the United States..." Nope, once you're gone, you're gone.
