Are you among the 11%?

I would bet that it would have been about 40% if they had done this poll on Cafemom.

Communism as an ideological force largely died with the collapse of the Soviet Union 20 years ago, but even with many of its horrors increasingly forgotten, U.S. voters overwhelmingly reject the ideology that contended for world dominance for much of the 20th Century.

Still, 11% of Likely U.S. Voters think communism is morally superior to the U.S. system of politics and economics, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But 77% disagree and say the U.S. system is morally superior. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.

    Am I frightened?? No, it just tell me that 11% of the US population is stupid.

    I would hazard to guess that the poll, IF done in CANADA, would include you in their percentage that is for communism.

    This is an interesting 'op-ed' type article that compares progressivism to communism. Maybe that is why some think communism is ok. It is so much like progressivism and people think progressivism is ok. 


    I stand proudly with the 77%
