Most Americans like to think of themselves as patriots, advocates for American values. But according to a new study, the very definition of “American values” has changed dramatically thanks to President Obama’s leftist administration. According to the Pew Research Center, just 49% of Americans say “our people are not perfect, but our culture is superior.” That number was 60% in 2002. That’s supremely problematic considering that our culture is superior to other cultures – just ask the millions trying to get here and out of hellholes like Mexico and Afghanistan.
A shocking 36% of Americans say “Success in life is pretty much determined by forces outside our control.” And 58% of Americans said that it’s more important that all people be free to pursue their dreams than that the government guarantee nobody is in need.
The good news is that that those numbers show that Americans remain conservative at heart. But American values are clearly on the wane – and that means the rise of the European-style government of which Barack Obama dreams.
