S. 3525, the Federal Land Seizure Act of 2012, is Back

We thought we'd defeated this bill, just a month ago. But like any good zombie, it's back again.

From the GOA:

Federal Land Seizure Act
Resuscitating Itself from the Dead
“Looks like GOA defeated Goliath. Nice work.”
GOA warned you earlier this month about S. 3525, the Federal Land Seizure Act of 2012.
As you will remember, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) -- who is “F” rated by Gun Owners of America -- is pushing this “hunting” bill which authorizes the Obama administration almost unlimited power to seize private lands for “environmental” purposes.
While it purports to the contrary, the bill would allow these seizures without the permission of the landowners for virtually any reason.
You guys delivered a crushing blow to this bill when you pressed your Senators to oppose it.  We won, and it appeared the bill was dead for the year.
As one highly placed office in the Senate told GOA:  “Looks like GOA defeated Goliath. Nice work.”
Sadly, in politics it’s often the case that a dead “Goliath,” like a Zombie, can come back to life -- which is why we need now to cut off its head.  S. 3525 could come up for a vote as early as Today.

Then, in a closely-related story:
In a new poll by Gallup on how do you view Socialism only 36% of Americans viewed Socialism as favorable.

However the real (not) shocker was when you looked at ideology.
53% of Democrats viewed Socialism favorably.. [emphasis added - Ed.]
17% of Republicans viewed Socialism favorably...

Let's review just what it is Democrats favor..

Socialism Defined by: Merriam Webster

and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
