Host Mark Levin trashed the embrace of socialism on his nationally syndicated radio program last Friday, asking his audience, “Why would we throw away the most advanced, prosperous, freest, magnificent nation mankind has ever created” for socialism.

“Why would we throw away the most advanced, prosperous, freest, magnificent nation mankind has ever created for a theory that can’t even define its fundamental terms?” asked Mark Levin. “For a theory that is so defective it has resulted in the death and/or poverty of tens of millions of people?”

A transcript of Levin’s remarks can be seen below:

“Why would we throw away the most advanced, prosperous, freest, magnificent nation mankind has ever created for a theory that can’t even define its fundamental terms? For a theory that is so defective it has resulted in the death and/or poverty of tens of millions of people? Are we so foolish, indeed, so moronic that a few people running around telling us that we can have free health care, free college, free housing, that these are human rights, are we so foolish to adopt these bumper sticker labels and arguments that we would throw away our very liberty—our very lifestyle?

“Does Bernie Sanders seem like a very sharp guy to you, a man of worldly experience? How about this 28-year-old, does she? How about most of the people who push this viewpoint?

“We know it can’t work. We know it’s an impossibility. And we also know that time is late because more and more of our citizens embrace it.”
