But there is a problem.
America’s current political divide has made it increasingly difficult for our nation to keep this promise. Political division in Washington is preventing our elected representatives from solving some of our nation’s most pressing problems. But Washington is just a weathervane that is influenced by the voting public, one that moves with the political winds over time. In recent decades, the progressive Left have carried these winds with enough success that a recent poll showed that 51% of Millennials now would prefer to live in socialist or communist nation rather that a capitalist one (42%). For parents of any Millennial, or any traditional American that understands that socialism reflects an attack on our Constitution and free-markets, these findings should be of great concern. This is especially true when studies also show that graduating high school seniors are not receiving a competent education in civics and economics from America’s public schools. It is this deficit in civics and economics education that is leading many young people to consider fundamental transformation of how we view the Constitution and our capitalist system.
