Recent polls show solid support for socialism by Generation Z and Millennial Americans. Especially relevant is whether today’s ‘conservatives’ have the arguments against socialism. Find out in Gen Z-Millennials-Brave New World-Bob Davis Podcast 798. (Editor’s Note: The title of this podcast was Gen Z-Millennials-Prefer Socialism-Bob Davis Podcast 798 but had to be changed to meet FaceBook’s nonsensical, arbitrary and otherwise byzantine standards for commentary and journalism they think is a political ad. Speaking of a Brave New World!)

In contrast Older Americans are shocked. Why? Learn more in Gen Z-Millennials-Brave New World-Bob Davis Podcast 798.
Is There An Argument In The House?
Consequently, if you’re against socialism, what are the arguments in favor of capitalism?
Party Of Thinkers Has Become The Party of Red Faced Sputtering
Conservatives used to say they were the ‘thinkers’. Certainly democrats were ’emotional’ and had ‘no plan’. These days it seems like the shoe’s on the other foot.
A Plan Beats No Plan
Even more, democrats seem to have an awful lot of ideas backed up by academics. Policy details about new ideas like the Modern Monetary Theory and Universal Basic Income, or Open Borders, are part of their plan for the future. What’s the republican plan?
Republicans have failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The GOP has increased spending and increased the deficit after complaining about deficits during the Obama years.
Republicans who were furious at President Obama’s “I have a pen and a phone” taunt applaud President Trump for using executive power to govern. And republicans are only too happy to support this kind of executive overreach.
Lack Of Principles
As a result one wonders whether republicans anywhere have arguments against socialism beyond pointing to Venezuela’s crisis and name calling. This will not do in 2020. You can’t grow a party without principles.
Laying Down And Letting Someone Else Make The Arguments
In conclusion I have often said there’s too much advocacy media. Republicans are only too willing to lay down while someone else grandstands or calls names, plays tricks and makes their arguments for them. Sadly, republicans are obsessed with ‘messaging’ while their children and grandchildren are socialists.
