A shocking new Gallup poll proves that 81% of Americans — an all-time record — are against the American Government, while 82% are against Congress specifically. And 49% of Americans believe the U.S. Government is “an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.” But to read POLITICO, you’d think we’re just in a polarized campaign environment or whatever, and that everything will “work out in the end.” Haha, it will, but not in a way that POLITICO staffers or other Washington factotums can appreciate. Also, you need to include “Wall Street/The Fed” and “The Pentagon/Military Contractors” in the U.S. Government, as those are both the primary interests and the primary beneficiaries of the U.S. Government. When’s the next straw poll or whatever?
So let’s see, 80% of Americans are struggling and the “comfortable middle class” now consists of the nervous lower half of the top 20%, as only those in the top 10% can easily cover housing and food and medical insurance and the cable TV/oxycontin bills to dull the pain. And 81% say they “are dissatisfied with the way the country is being governed, adding to negativity that has been building over the past 10 years.”
It’s almost as if the only people satisfied are the ones in control of all the wealth! (Oh yes, and also, Death to the Communists who threaten Our Freedoms!)
Republicans hate the government more — 92% compared to 65% of Democrats — even though the Republican party supposedly controls the House, which means it somehow also controls the Senate and the White House. But, we must not forget, the “center right” president is a black man, and the Original Tea Party U.S. Constitution said black people were slaves who could not vote — just like women and Indians and anybody who didn’t own property, which covered about 81% of people back when Michele Bachmann ratified the Constitution back in 1787.
