Least Surprising Stats of the Day

After their abysmal recent performance in the Presidential election I don’t know how much credence to give a Gallup poll, but these findings have the ring of truth.  53% of the Dems have a positive view of the term “Socialism” and 75% of Dems have a positive view of the Federal government.  Under Obama is there much difference in practice?  The Democrats are on a rapid path to morphing into a European style socialist party.

  • In that age demographic, it’s good news that it’s not higher. That means less than half (if just barely) of the “brainless youth” of America believe in Socialism. I wonder how that would compare with our generation 30-35 years ago. As well, it would be interesting to see how steeply that percentage drops off once the demographic strides solidly into the age bracket of taxpayers and parents – things that are happening later in life.

  • This is no surprise. We are becoming what the USSR once was.

  • Socialism is a dull and illogical economic theory that always has been a disaster wherever it was imposed. N.B. “IMPOSED.”

    Socialism may be summarized in three words: “Plunder the Prosperous!”

    This is our “vail of tears.” The Gospels teach us that the Kingdom is not in, or of, the here and now; and that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom. Obama is trying to save souls??

    With one or two interruptions, e.g., 8 years of President Reagan; Wilson, FDR, LBJ, Clinton, and now Obama (accelerating the destruction of the evil, unjust private sector) have steadily decimated the ranks of the producers.

  • “Obama is trying to save souls??”

    I don’t know about that. I’ve always thought he was a materialist of the Marxist variety.

    No, the ones I fear are trying to do this are our fellow Christians who in one way or another have sought the elimination of inequality and the perfection of society through a false sense of social justice. They are the ones seeking a Kingdom of God on Earth.

    They won’t get it.

  • Doubtless they will get the reverse. When Man sets out to create Heaven on Earth he tends to devise a fair copy of the lowest eternal abode.

  • The rapid path is over, we are already there.
