Historically , Communism can only take hold in countries that are down and out . That means severe poverty , or getting on the loosing end of a war ( which creates poverty and government resentment at home ). The United States doesnt fit either description , things are too good in the country for the masses to look to that for shelter . Communism in this country appeals to mostly the young and lazy . Pretty much no hope of converting the average citizen , that things are SO bad , that they need to give up their liberties for a collective , nobody give a $hit about . They may get their revolution ……………………unfortunately for them , they will be the only ones showing up for it . The opposite number will annihilate them . Communists and their Antifa stooges will find out quickly , how efficient LE , armed people defending themselves , and the government they are trying to overthrow can be , when they have to . Game over for them .
