Anybody see this Poll?

Since this country has been very heavily subjected to anti-communist, anti-socialist, anti-Marxist propaganda for 80 years, any conversation of poll will necessarily reflect that propaganda and the ready-made distortions it has fed us. For example, you comment about it being a "no brainer" and about liberty suffers under socialism is the fruit of such propaganda. And the fruit is beginning to rot as more and more people decide to be willing to consider socialism.

But I've yet to find a staunch anti-socialist advocate of capitalism who is willing to put down the stones of empty slogans that they love to throw at anyone raising a defense of socialism, long enough to learn anything outside of their treasured propaganda. Shutting down such conversations are far more important to them. How about you? Are you any different? Are you able to honestly discuss it with civility?

Most of the opinions expressed by the 55% who say they oppose socialism, are false ideas that come straight out of the 80 years of propaganda we've been fed, and most of those opposing opinions will eventually be seen for the nonsense they are and the percentage that is receptive to considerations of socialism will grow.

There's a lot of propaganda built into the idea of socialism by the right. But there's also a lot of propaganda built into the idea of how good socialism is to, by the socialist.

I think there's enough people who are smart enough to see through the propaganda from both sides.
If someone like Warren or Biden get elected, those who support socialism, will finally see just how absurd socialism really is.

A lot of Americans are against socialism because they think that blacks will benefit from it at their expense. It is a racial thing.

How does that work? Anyone written anything on the subject? Explain that to me or are you just throwing race in?

LMAO.. Race is an issue with republican white nationalist. Especially those that claim to be christians.
That is unless a black person brings it up. Then suddenly race shouldn't even be brought up.

You know the type.

The white people that look over their shoulders before telling a racist joke.
