Majority say government is a threat to their rights.

"Washington (CNN) – A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll."

"Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government's become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree."

Over the past few years, I have come to see the situation in this country less as right vs. left, republican vs. democrat, liberal vs. conservative etc. Instead, I began to see the real struggle of us. vs. them.

"Us" is comprised of the vast majority of Americans that get up everyday, work hard, take care of their families and do their best to make an honest life. "Them" is comprised of the bloated ranks of government bureaucrats, power hungry politicians (of all parties) who reward their banker buddies and feed at the trough of our confiscatory tax system. "Them" has remained in power by dividing and exploiting "Us" along political, economic and racial divides, keeping us blissfully unaware of the amount of power that they have quietly accumulated at our expense. Perhaps they have finally overplayed their hand, gone too far to the point where even the silent masses have awakened from their deep slumber. We can only hope so.

  1. We're are awakening to the truth - now more than ever. I'll be posting about fear+ignorance in the coming week - if you're interested I'd love it if you read it & if you like - perhaps link our blogs. Mine's a tad more on the spiritual side of things but I feel we have similar aims.
