A gallup pole conducted December 18th found that a record number of Americans believe government is a bigger threat than either business or labor:
PRINCETON, NJ — Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time. >\
Since 2009 when Obama took office the percentage of people who fear and distrust government has grown steadily “…from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today.”
Geez if we’d only listened to that 35% in 1965 we might not be in the soup today.
