  1. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class.

    That class had insisted that socialism works and no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on this plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive grade A

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got grade B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
    The second test average was grade D!

    No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was grade F.

    To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

    👉You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    👉What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

    👉The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    👉You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    👉When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,
    that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    Moral of the story_

    *Giving money packages to poor families will not improve their economic status but will surely demoralize taxpayers.

  2. Another reason to get an education….improve your ability to think clearly…
    No, I am not saying Democrats are perfect, not locally at least! But in general, Democrats are going in the right direction. They have set a goal to be inclusive, to start listening to more diverse American people. This is a welcomed change that taken 500 years to begin. As we know the trip of a thousand miles begins with the first step😊

  3. I've never meet an educated democrat. I only see freeloaders calling themselves democrats. If you're educated and still a democrat, you need to demand your money back cause you are brainwashed to the core

  4. If you are still freaking Dummycrat in America, you are Dead to me

  5. They don't need to realign. They need to dissolve

  6. Lol. All those b/millionaires obliged to pretend they like the working class. Should be amusing!

  7. You mindless drones keep believing what LIES NBC tells you.

  8. Its time for Republicans to go back to be Republicans… Lincoln is disgusted how the gop is headed.

    Another LIE by media.
    Same people that claimed for years that Russia had bounties on US troops and Trump did nothing about it.
    CIA/FBI just exposed story as FALSE and spread by WaPo.
    Believe nothing on msm.

  10. That's because of all the liberal teachers and professors!!!

  11. GQP = Party of the Willfully Ignorant

  12. Just because you’re college educated, does not mean you’re educated.

  13. "If we nominate him he will destroy the republican party and we will deserve it" -Lindsay Graham

  14. don't believe polls from these media outlets, saying college graduates want socialism…. they're smarter than that.

  15. what the GOP does not understand at the moment is that Donald never had 70 plus million as his base…it is more like 20 million…the rest had to vote for him because there were no other GOP candidates….meanwhile on both left and right the next two generations coming up to the ballot box are more progressive … and as such they are going to loose tens of millions of voters in those new generations

    We need two robust visionary and strategic partners…but the GOP have become backward looking dinosaurs and they are going to regret their lack of vision and ideas…currently they are a do nothing but criticize party, and a criticism strategy plays right into the hands of the democrats.

    GOP is grossly miscalculating….climate and vaccine deniers, no new healthcare plan, and a minimum wage which buys 20-25percent less when instituted, these are not the future of the party…they will split and fo
    all apart

  16. Ask any 12 year old if they think injecting disinfectants is what a smart person would say, and they'll tell you "no."
    Yet, 40 percent of adults in the U.S. voted for someone who said exactly this.

  17. Democrats are going to destroy this country without a doubt.

  18. Only the stupid ones from the south vote Republican

  19. Only the uneducated are Republican

  20. Right Wingers have been saying for years that colleges indoctrinate you into liberalism. And after wearing their uneducated stupidity as a badge of honor, they go to church and turn on Fox afterwards.

    Okie dokie.

  21. Ppl with any kind of smarts about them can see the Republicans r not for the ppl they r just for themselves.

  22. Congratulations, Biden's Voting Access Bill will ensure republicans cannot create vote suppression.

    The US world series with no other country competing means New Zealand can have a Galaxy series with no aliens from other planets.

    The US is the pandemic winner because it has the highest fatalities while New Zealand and Taiwan are the losers from having the lowest.

    Teasing and laughing at MAGATs feels like laughing at the disabled. When was America great?

  23. They forgot another key thing about that demographic voting group… long term they will be the wealthiest Americans as well… along with donating the most money to political campaigns… see where this is headed?

  24. Just wait for the mid-terms next year, then we shall see which party has lost support and which one has gained!

  25. Perhaps this is because our public schools and universities have ditched science, math, and critical thinking and have transformed into dogmatic democratic brainwashing institutions.

  26. Educated or indoctrinated?

  27. Playing to ignorance is a losing policy. Thank you to the losing party.

  28. These polls are not only biased but are completely false!

  29. Democrats will lose everyone's trust, dark and weak is not Sheek. Wars will start soon, the vacuum of power all in Chinas hands.

  30. Paraphrasing…
    I like em dumb.
    Guess who said something like that ?
    Count those sheep Donny.

  31. Yeah, but, they can't lose if the people can't vote. Brilliant solutions.

  32. Thank you 45, you did us this one favor.

  33. Educated people don’t vote GOP? Yeah Republicans, that should tell you something. If they pay attention in their classes, they’ll even go as far as to realize that they shouldn’t vote in the DNC.

  34. I don't know for a fact that Trump is the greatest gift to the Democratic party, I just know it's true.

  35. You'd think that a professional channel like NBC would be able to edit YouTube clips correctly. Where is Wiscon? ( No need to reply)

  36. I still remember all the smugness during the night of the 2016 election. GOD it was great to watch all those little socialists weeping and moaning.

  37. Clearly the educated are tired of the continuous stupidity and its impact on the future.
    Stupidity invited to boot,actually fought for,then used to assault everything civilized.
    The Capitol was a fine example of no matter your trainings in life,you don't have it to see you're being played.
    Most destructive movements start out as a dare,a prank,always an experiment to see just how gullible one can be.
    And how quickly you'll fall on your own sword for someone else.
    Half the planet is involved in destructive stupid movements,while the other half is just trying to survive the stupidity of that side.
    I still can't understand how one would believe the shat Q put out,but…
    Those people ate,there they are,still determined in absorbtions from that……

  38. Republicans have Guns and Money…democrats have junkies…inmates and maxime waters…!!!…lolllllll


  40. The crazy Republican troll comments on YouTube help them none. 👍

  41. I'm no statistician but I do know that a correlation between better education and voter affiliation does not necessarily equate to an advantage for one party… if, for example, college educated Republican Party voters were more motivated to vote for some other reason. It does seem reasonable that better educated voters would be less likely to vote for a party which has adopted an anti-reality, anti-science, and anti-progress position on just about every issue. But I can also imagine that some higher earning Yanks might be inclined to vote selfishly for a party that wanted to cut taxes and essentially transfer money from redistributive projects (like health and welfare) to the individual pockets of the already well-off. However, in general, the fact that better educated citizens are abandoning a party which has largely adopted ignorance, anti-intellectualism, and a willingness to embrace dangerously destructive and fact-free Conspiracy Theories as its most prominent features is exactly what one would expect.

  42. That’s why the Republican Party is catering to the stupid and ignorant. Anyone with any brains sees them for what they are. They have fallen so far that all they have left is a desperate attempt to lie and gaslight everything they do . So they will spread fear and hatred and racism trying to convince their uneducated supporters they only they can save them

  43. oycott any and all business that require a "Vaccine Passport" even if you do get vaccinated .. Useless you wanna help split society even more…. Airlines can easily have vaccinated and non- vaccinated flights they just don't want to … And they shouldn't be getting anymore ( payoffs ) I mean bailouts for running of their own customers ….either
