Government wants the people to believe IT is God. That’s where the are winning. When you free the masses of personal responsibility, they are free to sin without consequences... In this life, anyway.
"... the masses ..." ........ are yet an illusion, though slowly growing with every generation that undergoes the education system. ADVANTAGE is that individuals get smarter and crave more freedom as they get older, so the "the masses" are always going to suffer a loss of folks who see the light.
The thronging, cheering "masses" celebrating Obama are projections of the MSM. The REAL "masses" are more like us, if how they respond to MSM is any indication. Where liberal causes draw maybe a few hundred thousand of "the masses," anywhere from 880,000 to 1.2 million (estimates vary) converged upon Washington, D.C. on their Harleys last 9/11 (was just catching up on recent past history). These were regular Joe and Jane Americans, hundreds of thousands of them.
The MSM ignored those "masses."
Please have more faith in your fellow Americans. The idea of child-like masses is "winning" over you.
