We never should have given them the vote...

"Majority of American women age 18-54 would prefer living in a socialist country to living in a capitalist country"

Ironically they don't actually want to move to any of the socialist countries that already exist.

In a year when Bernie Sanders is making his second run for president and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a political Twitter star eclipsed only by Donald Trump, socialism is on the rise among Americans – especially women.

A Harris Poll conducted for Axios found that 55 per cent of U.S. women between the ages of 18 and 55 would rather live in a socialist society than a capitalist one.

That number was 40 per cent overall, including men, suggesting men are far more suspicious of communal ownership and control of everything in American society.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, both self-described Democratic socialists, have pulled their party to the left with promises of expanded government benefits and handouts.

So the system of government that has led to famine and death in Venezuela during recent years, and which undergirded Soviet communism, is finding new life in the United States.

They claim they're angling for a kinder, gentler form of socialism, one that combines central control of money and things with democratic elections to choose the people who hold the enlarged levers of power.

A socialist society is generally defined as one where people are permitted to earn and spend their own money, but where the government owns and operates the places where they work – while also providing the necessities of life to everyone whether the work or not.

Americans differ in their interpretation of what constitutes socialism, according to the Axios poll, with some policy proposals more universally lumped in with the scheme than others.

Seventy-six per cent of Americans in the poll agreed that universal healthcare, a government-run system that uses taxpayer dollars to cover the cost of everything from antibiotics to heart surgery, would qualify.

So would tuition free education, according to 72 per cent. And 68 per cent say the same about a 'living wage,' usually defined as a guaranteed minimum wage that's sufficient to provide a middle class lifestyle.

Other elements of socialism that Americans in the poll identified included a national economy and private property controlled entirely by the federal government, state-controlled news media and letting employees 'own and control' the places where they work.

Majorities also thought high taxes for rich Americans, a government that spends heavily and strong environmental regulations were hallmarks of socialism.

An Axios reporter said Sunday on the news outlet's HBO program that women have been 'pushing the conversation' about politics in a leftward direction.

'They're looking for someone, a candidate on either side, who'll support this idea of a socialist country that they want to live in,' Alexi McCammond said.

Axios took the unusual step of not releasing the data that the Harris Poll collected, not describing the poll's methodology and margin of error, and not providing the wording of the question about socialism.

After DailyMail.com asked for the data, Axios published it on its website. The results show that the poll was taken in April and was an online survey that was 'not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.'

This is because women naturally want to be cared for and protected. This was typically done by men. Good, strong, red-blooded men.

But women wanted those men to take a back seat. And then you've got the ugly ones who can't land a man. So they want the government to step in.

That's what this is.

On the positive side, after the next civil war, there will be no liberals left to cry for socialism.

While it's hard to argue that only white male landowners should be allowed to vote.

Arguing that only federal taxpayers who receive no benefit from the federal government is not.

Have a government job? No vote. 

Get food stamps? No vote

Get tax rebates? No vote

Lobbyist? No vote

Medicaid? No vote

Things would change fucking  overnight for the better

It's the danger of democracy, people eventually will vote for socialism. It's why the founders didn't make the USA wholly democratic.

Lots of neurotic leftists pushing this thought process are going to croak soon though. We'll see in 20 years if this mentality remains.

It is not a coincidence that the government has grown considerably since women were given the vote

For the record, the February Revolution of 1917 that overthrew the centuries-old Russian monarchy began on International Working Women’s Day, under the initiative of the working women of Petrograd. In fact, these women were more assertive and radical than even the Bolshevik Party, whose leaders in Russia argued against holding public demonstrations out of fear that the monarchy would massacre any dissenters.

 

Fully aware of the risks, the female workers carried out their demonstration regardless, demanding bread for their starving families. Even when confronted with the military of Tsar Nicholas the Bloody, sent to conduct a slaughter, the women stood firm and called on the military to defect to their side, which they did. Five days after the commencement of International Working Women’s Day, the Russian armed forces had split from the regime and left the monarchy in ruin. And just nine months later, this wave of mass discontent, led in the first place by women, resulted in the founding of the Soviet Republic.

 

There is a saying that in times of revolution, women are often the first to arrive on the scene and the last to leave. This defies any notion that they are impotent and servile creatures. In reality, their especially disadvantaged position in society, even among other downtrodden folk, means that they tend to harbour an especially stubborn commitment to change. Not only do women have more to gain from revolution than their male counterparts, but they are also punished more severely by the whip of counter-revolution. That is the explanation for the social explosion on International Working Women’s Day in 1917 that led to the formation of the Soviet Republic, and why women to this day are often especially attracted to socialism.
