No wonder Obama got elected...

If this isn't enough to scare you about the future of our country, nothing will:

According to Rasmussen Reports, only a slim majority of Americans (53%) prefer capitalism over socialism. While only 20% favor and 27% are not sure.

The real frightening stat, however, was this:

For adults under 30, just 37% preferred capitalism vs. 33% for socialism and the rest (30%) weren't sure.

Now, among Republicans, the result was 11-1 for capitalism. And for those who claim the Democratic party isn't turning socialist in its principles, here's a telling line from the article:
Democrats are much more closely divided: Just 39% say capitalism is better while 30% prefer socialism.
Now, does ever Democrat favor socialism? No. But, take a look at the base of their party, the direction their national leaders are taking us, and a frightening portrait is painted.
