LAND OF THE FREE: New Poll Shows 57% Think ‘Socialism’ is ‘Incompatible’ with American Values

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.19

A new poll released by Monmouth University this week is throwing more cold-water on Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ far-left agenda; showing more than 57% think “socialism” is “not compatible” with American values.

“The Monmouth University poll released Monday found that 57% of respondents believe socialism is not ‘compatible’ with American values, with 40% being emphatically negative about the economic system,” reports the Daily Caller.

“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country,” said the President during his 2019 State of the Union address to both Houses of Congress.

The survey comes as leading Democrats -including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, and more- call for new socialist policies heading into the 2020 race for the White House.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows among his fellow Democratic-Socialists and climate-change activists this week; with new FEC filings showing the potential 2020 candidate spending $300,000 on private jet travel in just nine days.

The recently released documents show Sanders spent $297,658.50 in October for a nine-day, nine-state campaign tour ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” said a spokesperson with VtDigger.com, the first outlet to report the expenses.

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York. The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report,” writes the VTDigger.

GREEN NEW STEAL: Dem Senator Says Socialism Means ‘Increasing Living Standards’ for Seniors

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.08.19

Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley defended the concept of American socialism from President Trump’s scathing critique this week; saying liberal policies are simply seeking to “increase the living standard of our seniors.”

Merkley was speaking with CNN’s Erin Burnett when she asked the left-wing legislator to comment on President Trump’s State of the Union address where he claimed America “will never be a socialist” country.

“Well, it is a society coming together to increase the standard of living of our seniors, and that is pretty much the definition. And the president’s attacking it,” Merkley said.
