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.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.
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."
