In a new poll by Gallup on how do you view Socialism only 36% of Americans viewed Socialism as favorable.

However the real (not) shocker was when you looked at ideology.

53% of Democrats viewed Socialism favorably..

17% of Republicans viewed Socialism favorably...

Let's review just what it is Democrats favor..

Socialism Defined by: Merriam Webster
1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership
and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

Why do Democrats favor Socialism. Well there are many reasons.
One is control.. all you have to do is look to who is in favor of population control ie.. what you eat, drink or where you worship and when.
Another is belief in Government... Democrats favor Government control, they believe regulations are needed to control what they feel
are out of control businesses. If regulations do not give them what they want then they favor Government taking them over.

"And guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal would be all about socializing — er, uh. [Pauses for several moments] ….
would be about … basically … taking over, and the government running all of your companies. Maxine Waters

"Government can do most anything” that it wants ... "government can do just about anything" ... Congressmen Pete Stark

These two glaring examples of Liberals that believe Government has the power to, well like Stark said, can do anything including taking
over PRIVATE companies. We have already seen glaring examples of this with GM. Not only did the Federal Government
bailout a PRIVATE business the President of the United States appointed the CEO of that Company. If that is not a classic example of
Socialism there never was one.

So why does the Democrat constituency favor Socialism. Well for most this election summed it up quiet well.

Socialism is about Government taken care of you. Giving you things and making things easy for you.
Republicanism (not the party) is the belief that the supreme power of a country should be vested in an electorate not the Government.
The United States was a Republic it is now a Social Democracy. A Social Democracy is a principle of gradual shift to socialism.
The political belief that a change from capitalism to socialism can be achieved gradually and democratically.

That is why Democrats favor Socialism.. The Power Elites are given control and the populace is taken care of.

This election we saw Plunder being legalized. Half of the Country voted for "things" not change. The re-distribution of wealth has become
the mantra of the left. We see that in the call for "Taxing the Rich". Even though by the best and most OPTIMISTIC forecast it will only result
in a net increase of $82 BILLION dollars.

Our Deficit THIS YEAR ALONE in $1.3 TRILLION dollars and expected to increase every year for the next 10 years.

So why the Class Warfare even though it won't change anything right now it's not even a drop in the bucket of our debt?

What was that definition of a Social Democracy? A Social Democracy is a principle of gradual shift to socialism.
The political belief that a change from capitalism to socialism can be achieved gradually and democratically.

Class Warfare is just a step towards that goal.

Lastly you want to know who has given us the road map for this.. Look no further then Cass Sunstein the Author of Nudge.
Nudge a book about slowly and gradually nudging society in the direction Progressives wish it to go. A Social Democracy.
