Poll: Majority Of Young Voters
Favors Bigger Government

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/5/2012 10:30:28 AM

A Pew Research post-election poll found that a majority young voters who were 18-29 years of age preferred bigger government. According to the survey, 59% of young voters said “government should do more to solve problems” while only 37% felt “government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.” Naturally, as a result of these views, young voters not only were more likely to back President Barack Obama, they were also more likely to identify themselves as “Democrats” and “liberals” than older voters. A plurality of voters younger (44%) said they

Comments:
The leftists have accomplished their goal of brainwashing and ruining the minds of the American students through schools and universities. It´s going to be extremely difficult to undo the mess we are in when this ideology is ingrained in the young people in this country.

They´ve been watching too much communist agitprop narrated by the likes of Ed Anser. Or too much MSM, which is essentially the same as Asner tripe.

It´s very disheartening that so few people see the role of government so very far removed from what was perceived by the Founding Fathers. A shame...and it portends a bleak future for what used to be America.

I´m 56 now but even as a teenager or a young 20-something in college during the Carter fiasco years I never wanted bigger government. Even then I knew the perils of larger government.

I weep for the future of this country.

And I saw plenty of them in Portland, Maine´s old port district over the holiays.

Sitting on a bench eating a slice of pizza from Slice the restaurant I overheard this conversation as three young man-boys walked past.

Boy A: ......so that´s why I voted Democrat.
All: Yeeeeeaaaaaahhhh.
Boy B: My father voted for Romney but also for (democrat candidate for Maine Senate - name escapes me). MY FATHER DOESN´T MAKE ANY SENSE.

I laughed so hard I almost choked. These boys are lost until they are on their own for a couple years and have to pay the bills.

Youth is lost

When all the conversation is about problems and government, you´d expect the young to conclude government is the answer. It´s the quickest, least controversial answer. But it´s also a reflection of what´s popular right now. And what´s popular now changes all the time. And Big Governemnt can be quite unpopular given te time and opportunity it has right now.

Ask them if they are willing to pay for all those government service. I bet the overwhelming answer will be No!
But many younger (not all, by any means) seem content to live off of others as long as they have an I-Phone, birth control pills, and access to MTV.

Young voters are much more socially liberal than what they hear from Republican campaigns. Until we get past that we will never convince them of why small government is best. Actually they hear Republican conservative social policies as coming from intrusive government, not small government.

We spent Thankgsgiving with my husband´s family and his neices and nephews, obama voters, fit this mold. These "kids" range in age from 25 to 31, they´re single and under or unemployed. And not a one of them of them is embarrassed that they´re still living at home!

I blame public schools for filling their heads with socialist ideas and their divorced mothers. Being divorced doesn´t mean you will raise overly dependent children but my sisters-in-law have. They don´t want their kids to grow up, leave the nest and leave them alone. Their kids really don´t see why mom shouldn´t go on providing the basics for them and what she can´t provide, the government should.

They aren´t smart enough to understand that the bigger government they want, they will be paying for the rest of their lives. They think mom and dad are going to pay for everything they want forever. When mom and dad run out of money, guess who that bigger government is going to look toward to pay the bills?

The lack of adversity softens people and makes sissies of (many of) them. The problem is not confined to America but is endemic in the West generally. Never in history have so many had it so good, so safe, so easy for so long. But the better people have it, the safer and easier their lives, the more they complain and the less able and willing they are to cope with difficulties. Advanced civilization, by its very success in eliminating most serious difficulties, engenders a kind of disuse atrophy and infantilization of coping skills. This is happened before. It is a known fate of advanced societies. The record of history shows us that the cure -adversity, real struggle- is seldom long in coming once things reach this stage. Obama and Leftist ideology are representatives of cultural decadence arising from lives that have become too easy, secure, and undemanding. More modern Leftist ideology than is commonly acknowledged is the result of simple boredom. People do not know what to do with themselves, they have it so easy and have so much time on their hands, face so little risk and danger, that they must script personal psychodramas in which they play heroes and heroines rescuing society or somebody from the clutches of various stereotypical and largely imaginary villains.

Adversity is the cure for moral and physical flabbiness. Thanks to Obama & Co., the cure for our condition is even now well on the way.

So. The majority of young voters also don´t know who is the V.P. of the United States nor where most of the countries of the world are located. That includes most of college kids. Add to this their complete lack of moral sense, and you have an electorate who are more than willing to follow demagogue like Obama who offers them goodies and entertainments and demands only their votes.

Spewing liberal garbage learned in school. Give them a couple years trying to pay back their student loans.. or better yet, giving up 2 years of their young adult life to civil service in exchange for loan forgiveness.

Piven spent all last summer training the staffs of universities on how to organize, brainwash & turn students into activists. More to come on this...they will join Obama´s miscreants at Moveon.org, Code Pinko & SEIUites in enforcing Obama´s mandates.

A Democratic congressional candidate who has promised "war" on Fox News, the Tea Party, the NRA and "other trash" went ´On the Record´ with Greta Van Susteren tonight to explain his threat.

If there’s a story involving foreigners, religion, sports, sex, or pretty much anything, you can bet Starnes will somehow show up (on Fox’s web and TV properties or on his delightfully terrible Twitter account) to try and scare fellow evangelicals into believing there’s a war on lowly ol’ Christian American folks being waged either by Muslims, atheists, “seculars,” Hollywood libruls, or “the homosexual agenda.” His shtick can easily be summed up by the titles of his two

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
