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.

How about MacArthur, Patton, and Eisenhower - - can any of the young ´uns tell us who those folks were?

No?

we´ve discussed that we are relatively happy that we´re looking back at most of our lives, rather than looking forward. I´m pretty certain I won´t be liking what happens in the USA 10-15 years in the future.
I´ll probably take the red pill rather than the blue. It will be the last option...

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.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions.

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
