Somewhere, Barack Obama is smiling – and your freedoms are in greater danger now than perhaps at any other point in our nation’s history.
You see, a new national poll finds only 53% of Americans say capitalism is better than socialism.
Another 27% aren’t sure which one is better. Really.
And it gets even worse when you talk to people under 30.
Only 37% say capitalism works better than socialism. 30% are too ignorant to know which one works better.
One third of them, 33%, proudly claim socialism is the way to go!
These are the people who will be picking elected officials for the next 50 years.
And as Barack Obama, and Republicans in states like Indiana and California, continue to expand government, more and more Americans will simply give up and join the 47% who think the rubble of the Soviet Union is a blueprint for freedom.
They only need to convince 3% of Americans to give up to have their anti-capitalist majority.
If that doesn’t make you angry, I don’t think you realize what that means.
It means politicians can jack up their war against our economic freedoms with no fear of losing their seats.
When barely a majority of all Americans support capitalism – and two-thirds of younger voters either back socialism or can’t see the difference – your property, your prosperity and your liberty are now on a death watch.
Politicians are now going to go after your paycheck, your property and your fragile freedoms with no fear of retribution.
I say we strike that fear right back into them.
The only thing these power-hungry politicians understand is the pain of Election Day defeat.
And the only way to do that is to build a Libertarian Party that can win elections and fight for liberty, capitalism and free markets.
Can I count on you to help Libertarians win elections with your most generous gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, $2500 or whatever you can afford right now?
Just click here to do your part to fight back.
We are building a focused, effective Libertarian Party that can deliver votes – and victory – on Election Day.
But we can’t do that without your support. We need the resources to do the voter research, buy ads, help build up state and local affiliates and Get Out The Vote on Election Day.
Make no mistake, with power-greedy politicians seeing only 53% of Americans are willing to say capitalism is better than socialism, your liberty and your prosperity are on their death bed.
The only way to revive it is by defeating these politicians and electing advocates of liberty.
And the only way to do that is by building a hard-hitting, politically effective Libertarian Party that wins elections and makes politicians fear liberty-minded voters.
I need to hear from you right now for that to happen.
Can I count on you to fight back and defend capitalism with your best gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, $2500 or whatever you can afford right now?
Just click here to do your part to knock some sense into 47% of America.
