Pew poll: Majority of Americans see Washington as threat to their "personal rights and freedoms"

Topics:

For the first time in at least the past two decades, a poll from the Pew Research Center finds that a majority of the American people believe the federal government is a threat to their "personal rights and freedoms."

Interestingly, it's not just tea party supporters, Republicans and gun owners:

[...] Nearly two-fifths of Democrats (38 percent) say the government is a threat to them personally, as do 45 percent of non-gun owners.

Overall, the percentage of Americans who view the federal government as a threat has increased from 36 percent in May 1995 to 53 percent today. It rose late in the 1990s and then dropped again after 9/11, down to 30 percent.

Today, most Americans now feel at least somewhat scared of what the government could do to them, and 31 percent see Washington as a "major threat."

Apparently, the American people aren't as stupid as Washington thinks they are, even in this era of Barack Obama and a totally compliant, submissive, and supporting media to propagate his every effort to rob the American people of their rights and freedom.
