Record Number of Americans Say Big Government the Bigger Threat

Posted by Tina.

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.

    In the soup with the frog.

    The number has also grown because people are realizing our history has been scrubbed of the truth by the liberals who have been in charge of our educational systems for the past 50 years.

    Heard the top books on the best seller’s list are about US history. People now know they’ve been lied to and as adults are able to seek and find our real history and teach it to their kids and grandkids.

    Home schooling and charter schools didn’t exist when I was a kid, but today it’s growing as fast as parents can get their kids out of public schools. K-12 curriculum is being developed for home schoolers based on the truth for parents to use.

    Parents are awake because of this administration’s massive lying and are taking the necessary steps to protect themselves and their kids from future harm.

    As Reagan said, “Big government is the problem.” A lying big government is tyranny.

    Yep can not wait for this truth!

    LOL Hilarious, Big Gov is Big Business running the government. Now they allow foreign companies to train our police on how to arrest protestors and lock them up as terrorists min 10 years.

    But the Tea party propaganda does not care it is all a scam o overthrow democracy for the Big Oil.

    Big Gov ya mean like Dick Cheney having a meeting to divide up Iraq’s oil fields 6 months before 911?

    911 will we ever get the truth?

    Big Corporations are running the big gov. No one in the country is for too big to fail anything except the tea party

  5. Steve says:

    It’s not the TEA party that has grown the size of govt or the corporate control thereof. Much like the growing gap between rich and poor and the shrinking middle class, this has happened on Obama’s watch. Aside from running the worst economy since Jimmy Carter, Obama has been one of the most corporate controlled presidents we’ve ever seen.

    Round this parts, someone like’n this here Dewey drip bugger, people be ask’n “the boy hows old?”, that is if’n they be ask’n a-tall. Most likely “Bless his heart” is the best some would offer. And Back in grandpa’s day they would have kept him upstairs.
