The Coffee Is Brewing, But Does Anyone Smell It? :: By Bill Wilson

There is a socio-political revolution occurring in America. Gallup statistics confirm that the Democratic Party is turned toward socialism.

The news media is complicit in giving this revolution a platform. We see it with the revolutionaries’ visceral attacks on anyone who disagrees with their positions and the media’s amplification of these assaults. These revolutionaries believe that their moral opinions justify breaking the law, fomenting violence, lying and bullying. These actions are seeded in political intolerance and ideological bigotry, and they are not going to go away anytime soon.

These are the days of great deception and unrest in America because a major political party has become the haven of unrest and revolution.

A recent Gallup poll confirms the direction of this civil unrest. For the first time since Gallup began polling the question in 2010, the Democratic Party favors socialism over capitalism by a significant margin.

Gallup reports that 57% of Democrats surveyed had a positive view of socialism, while only 47% had a positive view of capitalism. This is the first time since this question has been asked that a majority of those associated with the Democratic Party did not favor capitalism over socialism.

Contrast this with those who associate with the Republican Party where only 16% have a positive view of socialism and 71% have a positive view of capitalism.

Moreover, the youth of this country are steaming toward socialism irrespective of party affiliation. Gallup reports: “Americans aged 18 to 29 are as positive about socialism (51%) as they are about capitalism (45%). This represents a 12-point decline in young adults’ positive views of capitalism in just the past two years and a marked shift since 2010, when 68% viewed it positively.”

The brand of socialism these people support is undoubtedly deeper than an economic debate over socialism vs. capitalism. This trend is particularly dangerous to religious freedom and freedom of speech. The ideological bigotry practiced by America’s vocal socialists is targeted at anyone who suggests a Biblical moral code for society.

Progressivism, socialism, communism will end religious freedom in America because these forms of tyranny are based in the Communist Manifesto, which states:

“Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis.”

Christians who believe socialism is true Christianity cite Acts 2:44, “And all that believed were together and had (shared) all things in common,” as Biblical justification. Early Christians lovingly had all things in common—they were not forced to do so by a government. The very nature of communism is against God.

We’d better wake up and smell the coffee, starting with ongoing conversations with our families, children and grandchildren.
