Has the fall of the false goddess of socialism already begun?
Democrats may already be overreaching with their full-throated promotion of the socialism that is at the core of their centerpiece Green New Deal that has become a litmus test for the contestants who are vying for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
Having now abandoned any pretense of being pro-capitalist and pro-American, the Dems are on the brink of pulling off a radical transformation of this nation that only a few short years ago would have been unthinkable.
The refusal to accept the results of the legitimate election that put businessman Donald J. Trump into the White House and their descent into a morass of race-baiting and conspiracy-mongering allowed the seeds of socialism that were planted by the canny Bernie Sanders to blossom in the form of media sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a woman whose “expertise” in setting the agenda comes from the time that she spent as a bartender.
All that the Democrats need to do is to sell their socialist snake oil to enough ignoramuses and millennials to retake the presidency and begin the process of doing to our constitutional form of government what their shock troops have already done to civil war memorials and statutes of a number of the Founding Fathers.
But despite a broad-based coalition of Trump haters in the media, it may not be an easy sell – at least according to the results of a stunning new poll.
In the poll which was conducted by the nonpartisan Remington Research Group, a greater percentage of Americans prefer a border wall as advocated by President Trump to the socialist Trojan horse that is AOC’s Green New Deal.

Via Breitbart News, “Poll: Majority of Americans Favor a Border Wall over a Green New Deal”:
A majority of Americans would rather have a wall sealing America’s southern border than the Green New Deal, according to a poll released on Wednesday.
Fifty-one percent of Americans say that they would rather have a border wall on America’s southern border, compared to 31 percent who say that they want a Green New Deal, according to a poll released by Remington Research Group.
Republicans said that they would prefer a border wall by a 68-point margin, while Independents said that they would prefer a border wall by a two-to-one margin.
Overall, a majority of Americans, or 51 percent, said they oppose a Green New Deal, 51 percent of Democrats support the radical environmental program, while Republicans and Independents overwhelmingly oppose Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) idea outright.
Titus Bond, president of Remington Research Group, said Democrats face an uphill battle trying to convince Republicans and Independents to back the Green New Deal while still trying to appeal to their base. Bond said:
The Green New Deal has presented an interesting situation for Democrats. Democratic voters support this legislation, while the rest of the country overwhelmingly opposes it. It will be intriguing to watch Democratic leaders and presidential hopefuls navigate this issue with their base while still appealing to mainstream voters.
