As if we need a poll to tell us this already, almost 1 in 3 citizens view the fed as a threat to their freedoms. Bullying tactics by politicans, feds giving business crooks billions while the working man & woman go without. What does 4 out of 5 say? Take a look...


Nearly one out of three Americans view the US government as a “major threat” to their freedoms, and four out of five say they don’t trust Washington to solve their problems, according to a new poll out Monday.

Just 19 percent say they are “basically content” with the federal government, against 56 percent who say they are “frustrated” and 21 percent who describe themselves as “angry,” the Pew Research Center survey found.

Only 22 percent say they trust Washington to do what is right4 almost always or most of the time, according to the survey, which had an error margin of plus or minus four percentage points.

The first time Pew asked the question, in 1958, 73 percent of Americans said they trusted the government. In mid-1994, just 17 percent said the same.

The US public has historically expressed distrust in Washington, but a sour economy, epic frustration with the US Congress, and an increasingly polarized electorate have fanned the flames, Pew said.

The findings could spell trouble for President Barack Obama’s Democrats in November mid-term elections, with 53 percent saying the federal government needs “very major reform,” though Republicans do not get high marks either.

When Obama took office in January 2009, 62 percent of Americans said they viewed Democrats favorably, against just 40 percent for Republicans — and the president’s party now only has a 38 percent-37 percent edge over his critics.

Just 25 percent said they had a favorable view of the Congress, just half of what it was one year ago and the lowest in a quarter century of Pew surveys.

But while 58 percent say the government has gone too far in regulating the economy, 61 percent say they want tougher government rules for Wall Street, a boon to Obama and Democrats who have made that their top domestic goal now that the president has signed his historic health care overhaul into law. source: AFP news

Then why do they keep reelecting the same douche bags who screw them over and over again?

Hint: The republican party is not your friend.

This is interesting:

Good question for sure and I wonder the same thing. Hinestly, I think many fall for a lot of crap and believe what they are told in haste. One day though it'll be too late for a recall.

I edited my post with a video that explains it fairly well..

People disregard rational thinking in the face of fear. So, if you scare somebody enough, they'll willfully shoot themselves in the foot (time and time again)

A third of Americans are completely uninformed and uneducated? Who knew.

The corporations are the enemies, especially when they buy out the government to gain control and immunity. Do you know the enemy, apparently not.

Well, to post some superflous one liner then to make some conspiracy based comment within the same context really does not exude an intelligent mind at all.

This is outrageous !!

As long As the Zionist controlled US government places the welfare of Israel first, along with the Illuminati controlled Federal Reserve banking system, everything will be just fine.

But as soon as Americans discover the truth of all this, they become dangerous and must be controlled.
Pay your taxes, obey your government, and STFU.

If you wish to argue, that is INSURRECTION.

All Americans know very well what happens to Insurgents.

If you want to do more than just argue, that is TERRORISM.

All Americans know very well what happens to terrorists.

So be very good, keep your mouth shut get the KY jelly and bend over.
Anything else would be both un-American, and unpatriotic.

Remember, the US government only desires freedom and democracy, and they will kill any American without mercy that stands in the way of freedom and democracy.

Because the elections are rigged and just a tool to appease the masses to think they have a voice. 3rd parties have a difficult time getting on the ballots and are absolutely blacked out from all MSM.

Ain't democracy great...

Zionist government you say?
Well during a State meeting with The Israeli PM Netanyahu, Obama let him sit in a room over an hour while Obama finished his dinner.
Then Obama restricted the sale of radiation detectors to Israel.
www.debbieschlussel.com... celed-obamas-nuke-conference-exclusive-exact-english-language-translation-of/

restricts sales of satellite photography,
www.debka.org...

does not want Israel to build or develop East Jerusalem,
www.washingtonpost.com...
and is restricting additional arms as well!
homelandsecurityus.com...
From what I see of the current Obamanation is that he is absolutely Pro-Palestinian.

The US government just gave IsraHell another three billion dollars in foreign aid, even though many American state governments are now totally BANKRUPT.

To me, that sounds like putting Israel before Americans.

www.rense.com...

Obama and Congress gave the Palestinians nothing at all in foreign aid.

You decide whose side Obama and the Zionist owned whore Congress are on.

Until Israel is weened from the backside of America either by political means or force, we will continue to dump money into their "state" because of those with ties to it. Israel is nothing more than a remora sucking the blood off out of those who are too ignorant to see otherwise.

When America gets rid of Israel the US shall be better for doing so in many ways.
