Only 53% Believe Capitalism is Better than Socialism

An statistic oft repeated by the obese in the motorcycle community is, "90% of people want a Harley" - with the correct response being, "90% of people don't know shit about motorcycles."

Applying the same thinking to the capitalism survey results reveals that the only useful information it transmits is which marketing effort is the most pervasive. Further reading of the survey reveals a breakdown into age demographics with the under 30 mushbrain the most susceptable to commie propaganda. Surprise!

The under thirty crowd isn't long off the teet and generally hasn't found it's feet or a direction in this world just yet. Being that they are tottering economically it is only reasonable that they are frantically searching for another boob to latch onto. Granted, the appendage the government has flopped out has a mainline tap into the zombie-fluid vat but the kiddies are lookin' for anything they think will stabilize their situation.

The MSM has glossed over most of the evils of socialism that are readily apparent in those few countries where it is practiced as closely as possible to it's original intent. Things like food shortages/rationing, heating fuel cutoffs, hospitals becoming short rest-stops on the way to the crematorium, mass imprisonment of dissenters all interfere with the image of a Star Trek existance the proponents of government control of everything wish to convey.

The demographic I would like to see, but none of us will be treated to, is the racial data. Wonder how that breaks down? We should probably skip the "College Educated" sub-category for the under thirties, too.
