Most Americans aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

This is news?

I AM SO SICK OF F+ING POLLS. Polls are meaningless. Polls are the WORST...the ABSOLUTE WORST reason to EVER propose policy. We are supposed to be based upon rule of LAW, not willy nilly OPINIONS of the ignorant electorate.

just out of curiosity, have you spoken to anyone off the forums and internet, like in person face to face about wikileaks? Not many people are willing to look at them, and less people are happy about it. The various people I've spoken with are furious, and I don't think they actually know why, so they call for Julians head. It isnt pretty.

From my observations; Americans are so comfortable living in their fantasy "Leave it to Beaver" world that any information, especially truthful info is threatening.

Americans love their Red, white and blue illusion and buy and large are incapable of "Denying Ignorance" In fact they embrace ignorance to be able to live in their consumerists, pampered, decadent, shallow, controlled lifestyles.

And the increasingly popular rightwing fools like Beck, Rush and Sean are more than happy to prop up the fantasies and rake in the profits while their followers cut and past on ATS.

America needs more transparency in all phases of government, commerce and media, not less.
Assange is a hero to those seeking to "Deny Ignorance"!

Why are so many people afraid of the truth? Start here to find out why....www.abovetopsecret.com...

well I dont know who you've been speaking to, and I'm not against the leak.. though I would have to agree with the poll. Not that I wish harm to anyone, let alone someone trying to inform the public, but many people from various aspects of life arent happy, and they misplace their agression on the messenger.

Funny you should say that, because here in the UK I've tried talking to people IRL about Wikileaks and most don't have a clue about it and those that do have got their facts so screwed up it's unbelievable.

I don't know anyone who knows the truth about the charges against Assange or the story behind them. They simply hear the word rape and assume he's guilty, regardless of the fact that what he did isn't even considered illegal in most of the world!

The levels of ignorance on this matter are off the scale!

Interesting.

But there are LOTS of ways to skew poll results.

For example, I recently was "polled" regarding a city issue. After I agreed to participate, I was asked "how do you feel about such-and-such," ie., to express my political sentiments. After hearing my views (not mainstream) - the pollster asked 2 demographic questions, then told me my 'demographic' was already fully represented and ended the interview. ...If the demographic was the 1st priority, then it would have been the 1st question, right?

Stats. Ya gotta love 'em.

How do you all feel?

I think the poll is a clear indication that common sense is still out there.

Assange is not helping at all. He's being a NWO tool. This isn't openess and transparancey. This is an attack against diplomacy and an attempt for him to get a big name for himself. The NWO used this as a chess move .. to destabilize diplomacy so they could come in and get more power. Assange is either a stupid tool who doesn't know anybetter, or he knows and doesn't care because he's going to get $$$ from anarchists who will buy the book he'll eventually write and who, themselves, don't know anybetter.


Can we stop all this NWO rubbish, this guy Assange is putting himself on the line for openess and transparancey, he represents most people on these boards if you could open youre eyes, and all youre spouting is about is the NWO making a chess move.

Big up to the guy that said this poll is an example of Americans wrapped up in their TV world and being ignorant to whats happening, they have no clue about the TRUTH, not a clue.
What really bugs me though is that some political people calling for him to be hunted down or assasinated, my god, have you no morals or self worth in America, isnt this a crime in itself, isnt this what terrorists do? Shocking.

This just in.... More useless polls.
Ugh, I feel like we're on the verge of 1940 here.
Seriously, either A we are being lied too... Or B the poll is real and everyone is brainwash...
Or C a little bit of both..
Whether Wikileaks be govt' op or really just a bunch of lonely hackers...
The Cables speak for themselves void of interpretation or vulnerability to anyone's safety.
Anyone else sick of the nanny states yet?

OMG here is what the American people really care about.

Who needs polls, we can see who really indulges on these things.

Personally, I think Assange is being used as a tool to lure the supporters and hackers out of their proverbial basements. The spotlight is now shining brightly on all of them and their actions will result in a worldwide internet transformation that you thought you would never see in your lifetime. Thanks


There is plenty of money to be made and power to be taken by the worlds powers when the hammer falls on the internet.


If it's generally rejected and there's a consensus that he should be arrested, they're getting the "OK" to start censoring information on the internet. If they put him away for life and win this battle, they'll use it as a basis to limit/pre-emptively take down other whistleblower sites (possibly like this one??) Just a thought. I guess you're saying if it keeps going and does something harmful to the US, then the internet will be much worse off than the first scenario represented?
