#2 They already live in socialism: from each according to their abilities (very modest in many public servants' case), to each according to their need (never modest).

#3 I'm a gov't worker and I've never seen this poll. Must of been in DC. Of course, I've never been polled about anything. Do you think it's because of where I live or how I vote?
Inquiring minds would like to know.

#4 They see the kind of moolah the third world Government 'workers' bring in and wish for a system like theirs. America is already quite socialist in spirit, enough to satisfy the most suicidally guilt-ridden public conscience; but what they want is more opportunity for graft.
Ask any retired or middle rung civil servant and they'll tell you everything is fine as is, it's only reasonable policies, execution and employee incentive that is needed. But ask a 'big-wig' and you shall get this litany the article speaks of. Tighter controls on what people can earn, own, keep in their homes, drive, watch, eat oh yes ! ... and arbitrary re-distribution of moolah the final goal in the back of their heads They may never acknowledge it to themselves, such is the nature of the disease we call corruption.
While most western nations may deride us for people shitting in the streets, trust me when I say their civil servants are especially taken with us as a rather interested audience, and only for the wrong things. You can see the experiments with 3rd world level graft and the results already in some American states.
My words may seem like tinfoil hat buffoonery to some, but I know I'm right. It's not a theory, it's something observable throughout the world's history and even around us so kindly bear with me. And in my country I'm part of 'the boot', so I know.
The deepState will not usurp rights of people and sell out America to others overnight. There is an unwritten plan, 'a vision for the future' as if it were, in the leagues of overly autocratic officers, judges and legislators - for a Utopia of corruption where taxes and resource leases to foreign States or corporations will fuel a 'Socialist Dole State'. This will mean enormous sums of money to distribute through the hands of some civil 'servants'. Like the planned Insurance nightmares.
A crackdown on the 'long leash' given to arms manufacturers will also become evident in time. It shall be couched as civil interest litigations over trifles like hi-capa mags with enough inanity for the average person to assume it's just daft activism.
Absolute control and zero resistance to further control requires a public that is always scared, defenseless, looking to the State to protect their families, property, businesses. And that's where the 'monopoly of force' comes in. For all who think your 2A is something that shall enable you to fight the APCs rolling down Madison Square, or defend against SWAT teams that come for your M1903 and Colt Root repeaters, that is not the game the park is being mowed for.
Your 2A may say it is for defense against the 'tyranny of States' in word, but in practice in the real world it mainly protects against things like Antifa and violent criminality from illegal immigrantsThese, and the 'civil servants' are actually banking upon them to chip away at public self-confidence and the very spirit of nationalist communities. Oh, the police will rush there as soon as you dial that '911', but soon all you may have left is the '911' and an underpaid dispatcher saying 'Alhamdulillah' while your throat is cut. And the rulers will be okay with mayhem in numbers acceptable to them. The State shall assume control of life in acquiring the sole right to defend it. In a few generations, when the last 'rebellious white bastard', Republican voter, NRA member and 'nationalist nut' has been incarcerated and ousted from society - their work of transforming America shall be complete.
Someone will be doing the same to Israel mind you, and in other nations where a woman doesn't need a 'rape-whistle' if she's got a Taurus .32. These fine ideas they are getting from watching other 'sheep democracies' perform their task of propping up their respective ruling classes. People lorded over by illiterate assholes and absolute thieves in executive suits driving around in motorcades, uniforms trotting about only concerned for their masters and ready to bring the truncheon down on the next upraised neck. Economies functioning just well enough for bureaucrats and politicians to secret away moolah in securities and offshore accounts, where the usual reply to a 'Right to Information' petition is a drive-by or 'accident' paid for by a contractor. Police-states with a happy face and people drowning in shit in the hinter parts.
So the Government Workers this thingy speaks of simply cannot be clerks and report jockeys. They are surely the highest echelons of bureaucracy.
