Americans Are More Worried About Democrats Than Russia

We've got Soviets trying to win Congress. Putin is not an immediate concern.

According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, 56% of Americans see Democratic candidates as out of step with the mainstream. This is far higher than in 2012 and 2016, neither of which got above 48%. The polling comes as other polls show most Americans really are not that concerned about the Russia story. And why should they be when we've got Soviets in America?

Bernie Sanders wants to turn Kansas red, which would be funny except he was probably serious. He's campaigning with a dimwitted socialist the left is turning into their poster child for revolution. Meanwhile, campus radicals are threatening violence against "Zionists," universities are being overrun with bat crap crazy campus revolutionaries who can't tolerate others' opinions. Women and Gender Studies professors are on the march because they cannot get jobs in the real world. And Democrats are suing to stop tax cuts while also denying that anyone is seeing any real benefit from the tax cuts.

It is really hard to get worked up about a hostile foreign power when Democrats in 2018 seem more and more to be a hostile domestic power. Their social justice mobs are hounding people out of jobs, boycotting American businesses, and chasing their political opponents out of restaurants when not showing up at their houses.

Putin looks like a piker compared to American ANTIFA.

I'd say this is a bad article, the ideas of democratic socialism are popular across the nation ... Bernie Sanders wants to turn Kansas red, which would be funny except he was probably serious. He's campaigning with a dimwitted socialist the left is turning into their poster child for revolution.

Such as will they ever do right by the people, take on the big money corporate interests that have taken over our government ...

They say they will, but should we believe them?

As a former lifelong Dem, I had to make a choice to #WalkAway from screaming, crying, opposers of free speech who would rather spend their time and money on a fake investigation and protests over a pussy comment than to spend their time and money caring for the people they say are so oppressed, from violent avowed communist/anarchists, from a party glorifying MS-13 gang members instead of protecting the tens of thousands of youth dying of heroin od's while Mexican cartels rake in 89billion per year , from the rank disregard for the hordes of citizen victims, adults and children, living in tent cities on the streets of the US or in their cars or that illegal immigrants are used as virtual slaves with no benefits or worker protections, from a party that doesn't give a shit that community hospitals on the borders close while illegals get taxpayer assistance and free health care and vets are committing suicide because no one cares for them, from people who are encouraged to pass laws that will jail people if they use the wrong pronoun, from a party that gives no f..ks for the working classes who cannot afford to live on two full-time salaries and who begrudge them their tax break, from a party that passes healthcare that they did not read and who let the insurance companies write the bill that hurt twice the number of people it helped, from a party that admitted that they meant the bill to fail and they knew people would get hurt and that spent trillions to implement a bill they knew was meant to fail, from demonizing all white males, even gays, because of the color of their skin, from a party that supports a movement which spends so much time and money ensuring women can kill their children up to and including the day they are born that they have no time or shits to give fighting to correct the problems women face that make them believe they have no other choice but abortion, which means they have NO choice, from trying to destroy Christianity and take God out of everything, including our Constitution because rights bestowed by God cannot be taken away by the Almighty State, their new religion, from a party that does not get that we are a republic not a democracy and does not know the difference and why the difference is so important and, most of all, from choosing communism/crony capitalism, which has NEVER worked in the history of the world, over free market capitalism, which has pulled hundreds of millions out of poverty, from a party that supported an Administration that bombed the shit out of seven Middle Eastern countries and created the biggest refugee crisis in history. The list is actually endless of the downright evil behavior we see every day. I did not vote for Trump but I will in 2020. I am no Bible thumper but if the Wrath of God was ever needed before, it is needed now.

I am not more afraid of Democrats than Putin. But, I don't think of Putin as some former Soviet, he is the master of oligarchs. What I fear is our country following Putin's model. His oligarchs have looted Russia and they want to expand. I know he sees himself as the defender of Russian speaking people, I see him as the defender of oligarchs.

I agree with "OkieFarmGirl." John Newton, who wrote "Amazing Grace," did not immediately cease being a slave trader when he came to Christ. Putin has done some bad things, but he is a wonderful change for Russia after the atheistic communism of the 20th century. His resistance to George Soros and to "homosexual propaganda" makes sense to me, as does his conduct of the war in Syria. God raised him up. But since we Christians believe that nothing occurs apart from God's will, we can say God raised up Nero, or Hitler, or Stalin as well as Lincoln, Washington, or Churchill. Sometimes God raises leaders to purify His church through suffering. But it appears to me that the Left and the Democrats, who publicly have rejected God, are more of a threat to civilization than is Putin. Some of Trump's tweets don't help us either.
