What if: Socialism was applied to schools? Some make A's, some make F's. According to Socialism, the teacher would average the grades and everybody gets a C. Sound good? Might want to study up on what you're proposing. #NOTHANKS” Many applauded Rich’s tweet. https://twitter.com/jarredturner/status/1020316081905459200 “I’m a social studies teacher and I proudly teach our Constitution and the Republic in which we live. Your exact example is how I explain socialism to my 8th grade students. God bless you J.R.” A study last year found nearly half of US millenials prefer to live under socialism. [[Marion Smith, Executive Director, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation]] "We're seeing some deeply worrisome trends. Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.” Rich said that many Americans have a wrong understanding of socialism. https://twitter.com/johnrich/status/1020323119733649408 “Many Americans are taught that happiness is a right in the USA. It's not. The right to PURSUE happiness is guaranteed. Socialism says that all people should be "happy" and in the same situation. That credo kills drive and dries up the spirit of entrepreneurism.”
