‘Socialism’ is gaining ground

Gee, for a “socialist” (“socialist” = baaaaad) president, Barack Obama is kicking ass in the polls.

National polls taken this month show that about two-thirds of Americans approve of the job that Obama has done thus far.

The Repugnican brand name is so far down the toilet that today Repugnican Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania announced that he’s switching to the Democratic Party. Whether Specter’s move is just opportunistic or not, it still shows that the Repugnican Party is going the way of the dinosaurs that its members don’t believe in.

Adapt or die, and the Repugnican Party has refused to adapt. It still caters to “Christo”fascists, white supremacists, misogynists and homophobes, for fuck’s sake. The world continues to evolve while the Repugnican Party remains stuck in the past. Left Behind, ironically, is what’s happening to the wingnuts.

Anyway, once Repugnican Norm “Sore Loserman” Coleman finally loses his battle with Democrat Al Franken for Minnesota’s seat in the U.S. Senate, the Democrats will have a 60-seat filibuster-proof majority, enabling the Obama adminstration to enact its agenda — the agenda that the majority of the American people voted for — with greater ease. 

And how is “socialism” doing in the United States?

Salon.com recently noted that

…rather than damaging Obama by tagging him with red paint, it’s possible that the [Repugnicans are] just making “socialism” more popular by identifying it with a well-liked president.

A Rasmussen poll from earlier this month shows that capitalism only beats socialism 53 percent to 20 [percent], and among adults under 30, the split narrows to 37 [percent] to 33 [percent].

Exactly. If the damage that the unelected Bush regime wreaked upon the nation for eight long nightmarish years is representative of capitalism and Repugnicanism (and it is) and the national recovery that the actually-elected Obama administration represents “socialism,” then the Repugnicans and the capitalists are the best advertisement for “socialism” that the “socialists” could ever hope for.
