This is what you get when leftists control the government, media and education. Polls have consistently shown for as long as I can remember that the majority of American citizens lean toward conservative values in their fiscal and moral views. Yet socialism and goofy liberal ideas continue to make inroads into our society.
How is this possible?
Well, because of the unholy alliance of the big three institutions mentioned above the public is bullied, bamboozled and brainwashed into a ruinous progressive "utopia." Democrats in power disregard the constitution and push their radical agenda via out of control bureaucracies. (i.e the IRS, DOJ, EPA etc.)
The biased press selectively covers the news. Elites in education use political correctness to quash dissent.
Put it together and what have you got — a growing populace that can't think for itself , has an unrealistic sense of entitlement, and whose independence rapidly evaporates.
