    If you get your impressions from the Old Left Media, the following Gallup poll may come
    as a shock!

    This Gallup poll certainly came as a surprise to me...

    In terms of expressing the view that view that government should do what it can to promote traditional values in society guess which age group showed the highest support!!!

    C'mon....guess!


    "In most of Gallup's Governance surveys from 2001 through 2010, older generations of Americans were more likely than those in Generations X or Y to say they want government to sanction and protect traditional values. However, the percentage of young adults -- aged 18 to 34 -- who want government to promote traditional values has been steadily increasing in recent years, rising from 38% in 2008 to 53% today."
    As a result -- and owing to declines in older adults' support for government's promoting traditional values -- young adults are now the most likely to favor it.
    Americans Divided on Gov't Role in Promoting Values


    Meaning???
    The end is near for the Left!


    Hallelujah!!

    False.

    But please keep pacifying yourself with that type of reasoning if it helps.

    False???

    Gallup poll is false?

    Younger folks catching on to the Left-wing drivel that government schools teach, is that false?

    Nah, what is false is the rumor that you scored higher on the SAT's than Horshak.

    It's impossible to believe the sperm that created you, beat out 1,000,000 others.

    The gov't shouldn't be in the business of teaching any kind of values, that's for the parents to do. The gov't should be in the business of protecting our nation and our rights and civil liberties as individuals, nothing more.

    Throughout human history are accounts of those who were able to reason over and above the conventional wisdom of their peers and promote a more accurate truth.

    While I want government out of all forms of social engineering, it is encouraging that maybe humankind is still able to reason over and above the conventional wisdom of their peers. If we have Americans returning to their Classical Liberal roots, again appreciating our unique and exceptional American history, roots, culture, borders, and values that have withstood the test of time, that is a breath of fresh air and very encouraging to me.

    Maybe even the deplorable and unconscionable public education system has not been able to brainwash all the young and there are some still able to think and do critical reasoning in spite of all that.

    But they do.


    1. Here, from the NYTimes:
    Which is one reason “The Story of Stuff,” a 20-minute video about the effects of human consumption, has become a sleeper hit in classrooms across the nation.
    Video Warning of Pitfalls of Consumption Is a Hit in Schools - NYTimes.com

    2. You should take a look at what is being shown in classrooms:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM]The Story of Stuff - YouTube[/ame]


    Anti-capitalism, anti-growth, anti-prosperity.....
    "some people in this system matter a little more than others"
    ....sure isn't traditional values being taught...


    ...which brings me to #3:

    Proof that they've won over some 'kids'?
    Occupy Wall Street.


    And that's why the Gallup poll in the OP is such amazing good news.

    The problem is you may have to define "traditional values" to some. I doubt if we all come up with the same answers.

    Government is not responsible for teaching whatever you believe " traditional values " might be,
    but they sure and hell should lead by example and I have yet to see this principle being practiced,
    by anybody in public imagery, or by those of previous generations.
