Poll: Americans soundly reject socialism

With extreme left organizations such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter calling for an end to capitalism and exerting considerable influence in American politics, a new poll suggests their opinions are very much in the minority.

More businesses abandon California

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been more announcements of businesses and people fleeing California. Many cite the state’s socialist policies, anti-business atmosphere, high taxes, declining lifestyles, ridiculous lockdown and environmental regulations as the reasons for their departure. Of course, it becomes a vicious cycle. With California’s eroding tax base combined with the Democrat government’s refusal to cut spending, tax increases are the only solution to make up for lost revenue. So, the cycle continues. This past week, Oracle, a major developer of business software, announced it was moving its headquarters to Texas citing its employees quality of life as one of the reasons. It currently employs 135,000 people and it is not known how many will be directly impacted by the move. The Register reports: Oracle is shifting its California headquarters to the Lone Star State, saying change of scene will “improve our employees’ quality of life and quality of output.” “Oracle is implementing a more flexible employee work location policy and has changed its Corporate Headquarters from Redwood City, California to …

Poll: 98% of US socialists reject Biblical worldview

A recent poll of 2,000 Americans conducted by the Cultural Research Center discovered that 98% of those who believe in Socialism reject Christianity and its Biblical world view. In its news release, the Cultural Research Center stated: More than eight out of ten (83%) integrated disciples (i.e., individuals who possess a biblical worldview) prefer capitalism to socialism. In comparison, just half of those who do not have that worldview prefer capitalism (50%). Stated differently, 98% of the adults who prefer socialism do not have a biblical worldview! This shouldn’t come as a surprise as radical leftist rioters in Portland were caught a few weeks back burning Bibles. The poll, conducted by Barna Research Center, was interesting in another way as well. In addition to asking what people believed, it also asked what people did, to ensure that what they did corresponded with what they believed. In an interview with the Western Journal, George Barna explained the reasoning behind this: “People do what they believe. So if you tell me you believe something but you’re not willing to act on …

Dinesh D’Souza discusses the evils of socialism

A poll conducted last fall by YouGov showed that 70% of millennials, those born between 1981 and 1996, said they were “somewhat” or “extremely” likely to vote for a socialist president. In his book, United States of Socialism: Who’s behind it. Why it’s evil. How to stop it., author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza explains why socialism doesn’t work. Socialism has never worked, with Venezuela being the most recent example. However, many like to point to the Scandinavian countries as an example of where it did. In an interview with Eric Metaxas (above), D’Souza explains the myths behind Scandinavian socialism. But why is there a growing interest in socialism? In an interview with CBN, D’Souza explains socialism’s appeal stating that people are being told that they are “entitled to another person’s goods because the socialist hammers home the notion that your neighbour has essentially stolen from you.” D’Souza also explains the tactics used by socialists: “Socialism has never been in the mainstream of American politics until now. So how do they do it? Well, it’s not …

Capitalism sinks Socialism

Bankrupt Socialist Venezuela orders warship to capture German cruise ship that was outside the country’s territorial waters. READ: Warship fires at cruise ship, then warship rams the cruise ship, then Venezuelan warship sinks. Personally, I think the country is going broke and the government wanted to hold the cruise ship for ransom.
