I don’t know about you, but I found these Rasmussen poll results a little surprising:

Sixty percent (60%) of U.S. adults nationwide say that capitalism is better than socialism. 18% disagree, while 21% are not sure. Adults under 30 are closely divided on the question. While Republicans and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly say that capitalism is better, just 43% of Democrats agree. Twenty-four percent (24%) of Democrats say socialism is better. Seventy-six percent (76%) of investors favor capitalism, compared to only 45% of non-investors.

So a significant number of Americans (and Democrats in particular) don’t think that socialism is inherently evil. Why, then, is pretty much everyone of the left falling all over themselves explaining why Obama’s policies aren’t socialist?

What’s on your mind tonight?
