Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus is a self made man who believes in the free market. In a video made for the Job Creators Network, he says that it bothers him to hear young people and even members of Congress talking positively about socialism.

Home Depot Co-Founder: ‘It Pains Me to See People In This Country Glorifying Socialism’
Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot and a billionaire philanthropist, said on Tuesday it “pains” him to “see people in this country glorifying socialism.”
Marcus delivered a message on behalf of Job Creators Network addressing his concerns over young people glorifying socialism over capitalism.
“I want to start by saying something politically incorrect. I love America, I do. I love America because it’s the greatest country in the world,” Marcus said. “I think there are two big reasons why this country is so great. The first is our Constitution, which guarantees the freedom of speech and expression. The second is our free market system. The free market system has been the biggest creator of wealth and prosperity the world has ever known.”
Marcus went on to say while he is no longer in management at Home Depot, he still believes in the free market system that helped make his company successful. He then transitioned his message to socialism and explained why he was concerned about more Americans glorifying the system.

Democrats are embracing socialism and it is a big problem.
Republican Scott Jennings writes at CNN:
Dems’ town hall was socialism on parade
I had the craziest dream last night that the Democratic primary for president had devolved into a debate about how best to get an absentee ballot to the Boston Marathon bomber. I’ve got to stop eating so many pecans before bedtime. Democrats would never make it so easy on Donald Trump, right?
On Monday night, I hunkered down in front of the TV to watch all five hours of the Democratic presidential candidate town halls hosted by CNN.
I stared into the abyss, watching hour after hour of the socialist parade. I imagined my taxes going up. I imagined my guns and pickup truck being confiscated by the Green New Deal police. I imagined Donald Trump being impeached. I imagined Bernie Sanders ordering his bros to pick me up by the ankles and shake the change from my pockets.
If Democrats lose in 2020, will they finally abandon this destructive philosophy?
