I’ve said this multiple times before, but I will say it again because it’s particularly true: if you were to just watch the mainstream media, you would think we were on the brink of total collapse. From the MSM, we hear stories about climate change and how it’s all our fault; we hear stories about how Trump colluded with Russia (not anymore, really, but the attitude is still there); stories about how Kavanaugh sexually assaulted multiple women while in college (all of which are not corroborated by witnesses or evidence); and generally, that the world is getting worse and worse.
However, a considerable majority of Americans believe that the country’s best days are ahead of us, not behind us.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 59% of nationwide voters believe America’s best days are ahead of us, in contrast to 41% who believe they are behind us (thanks, Obama).
This number includes 60% of conservatives AND liberals who say this, as well as 57% of moderates. 60% of Republicans and Democrats believe the future looks bright and so do 55% of Independents. Across racial demographics, 60% of Hispanics, 58% of whites and 53% of blacks agree with this optimistic idea.
And it’s not like this is new. The trend has shown this to be around the average, with 58% of people saying the same back in June and 57% back in March.
Interestingly enough, this comes in spite of the fact that only 35% of voters believe the federal government is doing a good job in terms of being a government of the people, by the people and for the people. What’s more, 71% believe the political system in America is broken, while only 16% disagree.
This is good news, when you think about it. Yesterday, I wrote an article talking about why socialism was so attractive and came to the conclusion that our capitalist system of economics has been socialized to the point where young people are suffering and the blame is put on capitalism itself. Similarly, one could argue that the socialization of our political system has bastardized it.
Yes, the Electoral College is still working wonders, but the fact that California is now an eternal shade of blue when only a few decades ago it at least had the capability of going red is quite the indication of political malpractice (as far as illegal immigration goes, let alone the other kinds of voter fraud present in states like Commiefornia). It also doesn’t help any that Congressmen on both sides of the aisle can be bought by lobbyists like Planned Parenthood and Wall Street, as well as other organizations.
Now, one might also be able to assume that at least some of those people who say the system is broken are socialists who claim Capitalism itself is broken. One might be able to do that, but they actually would be wrong to do so.
You see, Rasmussen also found that 81% of voters believe the reason for our system being broken is that our elected representatives AREN’T FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTION. And while 30% believe the Constitution needs a major overhaul, a considerable majority (56%) believe that any changes that occur should FURTHER PLACE LIMITS ON THE POWER OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, which is the very thing the Constitution was written to do.
The framers of the Constitution all knew what tyranny was like and knew that the best way for people to live free is for the federal government ruling over them to be as limited as possible without making it completely useless.
The literal preamble of the Constitution reads as follows: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The entire point of the Constitution is to insure the liberty and power of the PEOPLE of the United States, not the government.
In each of the first ten amendments, what is known as the Bill of Rights, we find rights and freedoms and powers that belong exclusively to We the People of the United States of America, if not to the state governments to protect the states from the possibility of a tyrannical President.
This is why I say that no matter how socialist the Left wishes for us to be, the United States Constitution stands in the way. So long as there are people in power who are just, the Constitution will remain relevant to everyone.
Of course, there are more amendments to the Constitution than the ones talked about in the Bill of Rights, but the general principle still applies: the federal government is necessarily limited in power.
The Founding Fathers knew that it had to be limited in order to keep it from becoming tyrannical like the King of England they had fought and beaten. The Bill of Rights is there in order to limit the power the federal government can have on the individual states and on the people of the United States.
And with 56% of people saying if any changes are to be made, they should be to FURTHER limit the government, as we think it has gotten too big, that only tells you the type of mentality we still have.
So the overall climate in people’s minds, despite all the doom and gloom stuff shared by Democrat politicians and parroted by Left-wing media sources, seems to be that America’s best days are ahead of us, the government is cripplingly flawed and it should be limited in power.
This only further tells me that the far-Left people you see so often on Twitter and other social media are extremely fringe groups that do not reflect the overall mindset and views of America.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
