Right Coast: Disturbing Trends: Americans Aged 18-29 Have A More Favorable View of Socialism over Liberalism

Right Coast: Disturbing Trends: Americans Aged 18-29 Have A Mor...: ( Zero Hedge ) - In the prior post, we showed a presentation that looked at America from the perspective of a corporation and how it would...

FRSFreeStatePlus: I don't know if I buy this, yes there are young Progressives in America Democratic Socialists even who look up to Progressives like Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Dennis Kucinich. Green Party Presidential Nominee Jill Stein and many other Progressives and Progressive groups but there's. Also there's anti Big Government mood in America of people who are under fifty or a little over even, that they don't want Big Government in their boardrooms and bedrooms and in their personal lives. As we are seeing with all the young people who now run or own small business's and startups, that they don't. Like high taxes and regulations and would like more freedom to live their lives and handle their own affairs. As we are also seeing with how young people feel about tolerance as it comes to homosexuality, Same Sex Marriage even. How legalizing marijuana is now popular with my generation and people younger as. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson have picked up on in their Presidential Campaigns.

There is this anti Government mood that even looks Anarchist with a lot of young Libertarians that follow Ron Paul. But thats not the movement that Gary Johnson has picked up on as the Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee. What his campaign is about is not gutting the Federal Government but making it leaner and making it more effective and less centralize. Not ending Social Insurance Programs but giving the people and States more power and flexibility and the ability to run them. Thats what he's running on, there are young Progressives where Socialism looks good to them but to say thats where the mood. Of young people is right now, is I believe a big stretch as someone whose still young myself relatively.
