And There You Have It...

If there were any lingering doubt about the grave differences between the left and right in this country, let me dispel those for you.
The latest Fox News poll finds that 79 percent of voters think it’s possible the economy could collapse, including large majorities of Democrats (72 percent), Republicans (84 percent) and independents (80 percent).
And yet, somehow, the Democrats cannot resist themselves from expanding the size and scope of government at a breathtaking rate. Very curious, isn't it? One might say that some Democrats could give a damn less if the economy collapses.  Others might say that some are actively rooting for it.
Just 18 percent think the economy is “so big and strong it could never collapse.”

Moreover, 78 percent of voters believe the federal government is “larger and more costly” than it has ever been before, and by nearly three-to-one more voters think the national debt (65 percent) is a greater potential threat to the country’s future than terrorism (23 percent)…
It's fantastic that people are coming to this conclusion about seven years too late.
Three in 10 American voters (30 percent) say they are comfortable with the size and role of the federal government right now, while 65 percent say the government has become too big and “is restricting American freedoms.”
This is important to understand. It is difficult enough getting state-indoctrinated drones to believe what is going on right in front of their faces. It is nearly impossible to get people who are unable to think objectively and to exercise judgment to believe that something is a dire threat, when everything - in the news and entertainment media, at their college, at their government-subsidized workplace - suggests that all is hunky-dory. In other words, as long as some left-leaning liberals and soft socialists are face down in the mud eating dirt in a gulag or starving to death, they will never be frightened of the expanding power of the state, which seems to them like a giant "compassionate" welfare-check dispensing machine.
Sizable majorities of Republicans (84 percent) and independents (74 percent) think the government is too big, while just over half of Democrats (51 percent) are okay with the size of government.
This implies that nearly half of sll Democrats believe that the size of government is just fine, though seventy-two percent think the economy could collapse!

So let's disabuse ourselves of the myth that Democrats are misguided, well-intentioned people. They are delusional basketcases who are an eternal threat not only to the republic itself, but to our very lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren.
