Democrats Preferring Socialism

A new Gallup poll indicates that the majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young discuss how socialism goes against the fundamental principles of the United States, and how the Democratic Party now has two voter bases.

Unhappy Americans: There's nothing about socialism that corresponds to the principles of the American experiment, so American socialists are unhappy Americans.

Democracies inside: The U.S. is a constitutionally limited republic but with 50 democracies inside of it.

Strong divide: The eight years under President Obama created a bifurcation between those who are totally for the American principles and those who hate those principles and want a different kind of America in the future.

Acceptable label: Unlike 20 years ago, socialist is now an acceptable label.

Governing government: America is a transformative process based on constitutional principles. America isn't governed by government; it has a constitution that governs government so that it doesn't get in the way of the dynamic principles of American society.
