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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. “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.
