Americans Have Lost All Trust in Government: Is It Any Wonder?

A new poll from CNN shows what most Americans already know – the country’s citizens have lost all trust in the government. Continuing canada goose youth chilliwack a pattern of Washington distrust that has its roots in the Watergate scandal of the late 1970s, the poll’s respondents made it clear that they don’t put a lot of faith in politicians.

 

From this question, only 1% of respondents thought they could trust the government “just about always.” Another 12% of people said they could trust the government to do the right thing “most of the time,” and 10% of respondents believed they could “never” trust the government. That left a whopping 76% of people to decide they could trust Washington to do the right thing “only some of the time,” essentially giving politicians the same amount of faith as a broken clock. Once in a while, they’ll get it right just by pure chance.

Mistrust of government has become part of the fabric of American politics, so much so that many of today’s polo ralph lauren uk  younger voters can probably not remember a time when there was widespread government approval of any kind. There was a brief boost in confidence following 9/11, but it didn’t take long for that to fade.

Certainly, having a liar as bold and brash as Barack Obama in the White House hasn’t done much to restore faith to Washington. His numerous lies and broken promises have undoubtedly influenced that 10% of people who claimed to “never” trust the government.

You can throw a dart and hit an Obama lie. You don’t even have to try. You don’t have to dig. Take his much-ballyhooed appearance on Zack Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns show last year where he insisted that most young Americans were not currently covered mens barbour jacket  by health insurance.  Only about 25% of Americans below the age of 34 were uninsured at the time.

Or take his statement at the State of the Union where he claimed that his administration had made such progress in the area of energy independence that cars were getting twice the amount of mileage from a gallon of gas.  There are plans on the books to get fuel economy standards to 54 mpg, but the projections estimate we won’t see those numbers until 2025.

You can add in the time he said that Americans wouldn’t have to give up their health insurance, the time he promised that he would close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, and his vow that he wouldn’t fill his administration with lobbyists.

The quest for an honest politician may be a futile one, and we’re probably a long way from turning American sentiment in favor of Washington. The more politically-divided we become, the less chance there is that the majority ofcanada goose jacket sale us will define “doing the right thing” the same way. There’s no doubt, though, that we can do better than this.

    If you like your Doctor you can keep him, if you like your current Health Care plan you can keep it. What a crock of Shit.

    • kwkurtz44

      Unless your conservative government in your state decides not to go along with the program, and then bitches because they don’t get the benefits of it.

      • Clearwater1948

        such language you must be a democrat, there are children you may be reading your comment. I realize that you feel empowered, I realize what I am about to ask of you will be very difficult for you but think of your grandchildren but do you really want your grandchildren asking you why are you so angry, aren’t you getting enough fiber in your diet

        Dah, comrade, 44. Soon we will all have the numbers. Your assigned FEMA camp is 44.

    • omegaman

      and there you have it: Obama administration is a croc of shit.

  • Paul Brown

    I stopped trusting and believing the government when this terrorist was shoved down our throats by the lying demoncraps.

    • Wayne

      They started some shit that they can’t finish. Starting with Vietnam, we’ve been involved in wars that were never finished and accomplished NOTHING but put us squarely in the bullseye of terrorist.

      • Paul Brown

        We were never suppose to win in Viet Nam. I was there and we tried to fight to win but were hampered by the bullshit from back here with the politicians, that were never even there. I can say anything bad about my time there because I volunteered to go twice, I fell in love with the country and the people. My picture to the side here is of my daughter, she is Vietnamese and I am very proud of her.

        • Wayne

          right on my bratha. I know how the politicians f#$#@ with you guys . My brother was there and told me all about that B.S. I tried to join but my drug rap kept me out….and as the recruiter said ‘our guys got enough problems w/o us sending you there. He probably knew that I knew the best heroin was there???

          • ESQ

            Hmmmm!

        • ESQ

          Amen! And we aren’t supposed to win this war either! Tell your kids not to join up and please be second amendment supporters! Our Country is now in full fledged Civil conflict! GOD bless.

          • Paul Brown

            Dude, I am a proud supporter of the second amendment and no body gets my gun, they will pry it from my cold dead hands before I give it up.

        • Will

          We couldn’t win without starting WWIII and it was known going in. Had we hit hard enough to win, the Chinese (who weren’t that big a threat in the 1960’s) would have flipped at how close we were, and they would have called for more than advisors from the Soviets (who were a major threat). They KNEW we couldn’t go that hard. We were just weakened, morally and economically (at least back then we were a productive enough nation to afford the 5% surtax). We’ve been systematically, intentionally weakened, with no possibility of a win. They have me emotionally wanting to go to war against ISIS. Too bad that our economy is already destroyed from constant war and no productive work to support it. Thank You, Paul for your service and I understand why you are proud of you daughter.

          • Paul Brown

            Thank you, yes I am very proud of her and always will be. I love my Daughter more than life itself and would do just about anything for her. I made up my mind to love her unconditionally. I know it may not sound like much, but it can be hard at times, but I stand with her always.

      • ESQ

        Amen!

      • don

        actually, the end of WWII ushered in the era of “No win” policies of the US.

        we, and our allies, defeated Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and fascist Italy in 3 years and 8 months.

        the american people do NOT have the will to do what we did to “Win” WWII.

        winning means to pummel the ‘enemy’, without mercy, until they no longer are able, or will, continue to fight and surrender. then, and only then, should mercy be shown.

        Korea: nearly 80,000 dead and 7,000 missing to this day in three years…violence “Just stopped” by mutual agreement

        vietnam: 58,000 dead and still hundreds missing to this day in 16 years…yes…16 years from 1957 to 1973 we “Just withdrew”

        130,000 lives lost, not mentioning those who are permanently maimed and injured, and NO CLEAR VICTORY…clearly “No win” was present…wouldn’t you say?

      • Will

        No win, no objective, no money to fight, no tax increase to pay the war cost, increased domestic spending to enrich the top of the heap. Adding a permanent war against “terrorists” with no clear designation that islamics are the terrorists, allowing a potential tyrant to redefine terrorist to include American citizens, and returning soldiers. Morphing our manufacturing that used to provide support of the nation into taxpayer funded military hardware manufacturing (85% of manufacturing is military). What’s not to trust? Just a tiny little wind will blow this house of cards down flat on the table.

    • lfallar

      I f any one would prefer the health insurance the way it Was over Obamacare they are crazy. Now Insurance companies cannot kick you out .or refuse coverage if you have an existing problem. The insurance companies are the ones that decided that some can’t keep their doctors just to get back at Obama.
      He cannot close Guantanamo because the GOP will not allow it. It needs to be voted on…..HELLOOOOOOO!!
      24 STATES all with GOP Governors have refused the Medicaid expansion for political reasons. They don’t care about their constituents lives and 6,000 Americans will die each yr. How can anyone support that sick bunch. Nothing gets done or solved because of the GOP obstruction and then they blame Obama. If democrats did this I would call them traitors and never vote for them again.
      Since day 1 they decided they hated him and would stop anything he tried to do. shameful. They voted against his Jobs Bill, veterans benefits, infrastructure bill, closing G. Bay, higher minimum wage and on and on. Yet they pander to the banks, pharma, insurance and the billionaires. Bush had a 3 page bank bailout bill with NO STRINGS attached, but when it came to helping average Americans with another stimulus or jobs bill they said NO. If that is what you want for Party platform then no wonder people don’t trust government

      • You must be on some good meds,There isn’t a grain of truth in what you just stated

        • yaki534

          Naw, LastGasp,, lfallar is just a brainless liberal. That is normal for them. Must have used too much drugs or something.

      • Intellibronc

        Interesting that you know nothing about what is going on. There are 340 bills sitting on dingy harry reid’s desk. I’d call this the demoncat destruction.

      • govogue

        Sadly, you are allowing yourself to be pathetically misinformed.

        • Will

          Nice short, sweet response.

        • lfallar

          I worked in X-RAY in the 70’s when the DRG’s came out. Went into Ultrasound later and saw how insurance companies took over. Doctors used to make the decisions, but soon it was insurance calling the shots. Patients got less and less care. Kicked out of hospitals too early because insurance said so and on and on. We let it happen and allowed greed to take over care. So many people denied necessary procedures because some bean counter at insurance said no. I am very informed. Read what Wendell Potter has to say. He was a highly paid executive for CIGNA, but finally could not live with himself. I worked in healthcare and he worked in insurance. Which one do you work in or do you get informed by talk radio and Fox? If so, no wonder you have no clue

          • joe haire

            Have you heard of Ezekiel Emanual? He is one of the architects of Obamacare. When asked to explain Obamas statement “you can keep your plan & your Doctor PERIOD” his was response was very arrogant. He said” you can keep your Doctor & plan IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT”!! A lot of us are aware of the problems that the Military/Industrial Complex has caused. Dwight Eisenhower warned us of the dangers. Republicans AND Democrats in our legislative branch are fully corrupted, But the LAZY self absorbed Arab-American in the whitehouse cares about following the Saul Alinsky Model.Fox news tells the truth while MSNBC perpetrates lies and hatred. Don’t you just love Al Sharpton and his full deck of race cards??

          • lfallar

            The lies and attacks on the ACA from the right is to protect their constituents (Pharma, Insurance companies) They don’t represent you or me. Bush gave Pharma 38 billion to implement Medicare D and not 1 repub said a word. They have convinced you that government is bad (when a D is President) to protect their big donor industries. Then when a R is President suddenly it is blasphemy to criticize govt. When will good,decent republican citizens wake up to this manipulation? They even have you believing anything for “the people” is socialism even though you and I ARE the people. Goebbels would be proud of such propaganda.

      • Will

        I’d prefer not to by health insurance. I’ve been opting out of our fake medical care (which is only drug dealing with a license) at every opportunity since 1984. I hate ‘bammacare not because my premium went up, but because I don’t need it, don’t want to pay for it, won’t use it, and other than setting broken bones, fighting infection and sewing up cuts, (which is covered by auto insurance), they’ll not be bilking me for ridiculously over-priced fake care designed to kill off as many ‘patients’ as can be hidden in the statistics. I was thrilled that ‘bamma won the nomination from kilary, because I expected ‘bamma to have his elegibility examined thuroughly which, if it had happened, would have ensured another neocon (not a good thing, just better than the neocoms) would be pres. Since before day one, I knew he was a fraud. Criminals don’t make good presidents. I just want ‘bamma investigated, charged with his obvious crimes, tried and sentenced, with accompanying public disgrace.

        • lfallar

          I have no idea what Obama should be tried for.What supposed crime did he commit.? The previous admin. definitely should have been indicted, but that’s another story.
          You are a fool not to want/have health insurance. Is it perfect? Do they make mistakes? Do they prescribe too much? YES But if you are injured or come down with a disease that needs care and follow up your chances of survival are much better going to a doctor or hospital.

          • joe haire

            You could go to the Emergency room like millions of ILLEGALS do thanks to Barak Hussein Obama. We have to pay for their medical care through higher premiums and higher taxes. Thanks to the Liberal mindset.

          • lfallar

            I hate to burst your bubble, but that is what we HAD all these years for people without insurance. It is one of the things that will change under Obamacare. If you think ER use for uninsured is Obama’s fault then you are completely ignorant of the system we have had the last 30 yrs. Please educate yourself before commenting.

          • joe haire

            I am 77 years old and have been through a lot more than you.There are still a lot of people without insurance and likely will never be able to afford the AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE under OBAMA care. It is the typical communist type of benefit that does not benefit a lot of people. My daughter is a single self-employed Mom and cannot afford it. Wasn’t Obamacare designed to help her?I am not ignorant of the current system. How about explaining the outrageous deductables and high premiums!!I will comment because I have experienced a lotmore than you have. You are blind to the real world. You believe in the Marxist dream . Wait until you have to compete with about 11 million ILLEGALS for health services. They don’t have to pay, but you will spout off that it is for the greater good. You are a simple minded moron. Good luck Commrade!!

          • lfallar

            If your daughter cannot afford it the ACA will subsidize her payments. Before we had the ACA there was NO SUCH SUBSIDY. If she is in the Medicaid (poor) level she better move to a state with a Democrat as Governor. Then she will be fully covered. The 24 states that rejected the Medicaid expansion are all Republican Governors who are letting their poor citizens GO WITHOUT INSURANCE for political reasons.
            Under the ACA ALL insurance companies HAVE to provide real coverage, No more junk policies allowed. It amazes me that Americans like you have not minded being screwed by insurance companies for 30 plus years, but get upset when they no longer can get away with it. Don’t believe me? Look up Wendell Potter (ex big shot executive of CIGNA insurance) and see what he has to say.
            The best care in my family was from the VA for my Dad and Uncles and Medicare for my Mother. What you would consider communist/socisalist

          • joe haire

            If you like your health plan you can keep it…PERIOD!! If you like your Doctor you can keep him…PERIOD!!He has commited many impeachable offenses. His administration is the most corrupt in or history, He has not kept one of his campaign promises. The man is a committed MUSLIM and Marxist. and you cannot prove otherwise. Your support of him shows your true colors. You are a Marxist too. However you are like many traitors and are to cowardly to admit it.Your last sentence shows your true intelligence. Re-read my first sentence!!

      • joe haire

        I find it interesting that the wealthy Elite of many Communist countries come to America for serious illness treatment. They know that our health care is still the best in the world. Even some democratic countries with poor health services come here. Canada, Britain, France, etc. Their wait times rival our Veterans Administrations’ wait times. Oh gosh. The VA is a government operated system!! And you think that OBAMACARE (a government run healhcare system) will be wonderful. Did you know that Cass Sunsteen, regulation Czar, believes that at age 76 you are too old for healthcare??Can you spell “death panel”?? Oh, by the way, his wife Samantha Power is our ambassador to the united nations She should be able to push the “One World Order” thing you favor.

        • lfallar

          Lesson 1 The VA is government owned and run. The ACA is private healthcare delivery with rules that insurance companies must stop screwing people and must insure. HUGE difference.
          lesson 2. Medicare is single payer. Again private delivery system with 1 insurer. The government
          What we had before the ACA was for profit insurance calling the shots. Deciding who gets what treatment or how long you stay in hospital etc. If you use it too much they find a way to kick you out.
          We are no longer even close to number 1 health care. We may have some great doctors and a dozen world renowned hospitals, but our overall rating has dropped to 17th. Our number 1 reason for family bankrupcy was medical bills. Why would any American (except executives in Insurance) accept such a cruel system.

      • Gun control is unConstitutional.

        • kwkurtz44

          Your reading a different Constitution then. We are guaranteed the right to bear arms, but it says nothing about gun control. Gun control is not banning weapons, it is just requiring that you be competent enough to own them responsibly. The fore fathers could not have foreseen automatic rifles and assault weapons. If you do not have gun control you are not exercising one of the main reasons for government ” to serve and protect”. Why is it necessary to have a drivers license, the Constitution does not require one. Every other civilized country in the world has some sort of gun control. We have the highest death by fire arms rate of any country in the world. How is this working for you? You think more guns is the answer, arm every citizen? Even the old west had cities that had gun control…They did it for a reason, so people wouldn’t be shooting one another in the streets. Hasn’t our civilization advanced enough to recognize that?

          • There’s a reason it doesn’t say anything about gun control,,,it’s unConstitutional! What part of SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED don’t you understand? Government is meant to “serve and protect.” not control and regulate. Don’t you ever look at REAL statistics? All those “civilized” countries may have fewer gun related crimes, but they have more VIOLENT crimes. It is a proven fact that ownership of guns by the public REDUCES CRIME. Chicago has the most strict gun control laws in the country and they also have the highest rate of gun related violence and crime in the country. When are you ignorant progressive Democrats going to figure out the relationship between gun ownership and crime rates? Google it, it’s common knowledge. Driver’s licenses are unConstitutional , too.
            You say we have the highest rate of death by firearms in the world. Did you realize that 60% of those deaths are suicide? Did you realize that 80% of homicides by guns are gang related? Gangs killing other gangs. Your chances of ever being killed by a gun in your hometown are less than dying by a bee sting.

          • Intellibronc

Those same agencies are planning the demise of all of us. Those that want to disarm or make arms ineffective have a reason that isn’t explained by public safety. There really are some ‘bad guys’ working in society. They aren’t you and they aren’t me.

            No, actually, it’s been proven that every mass school shooter was on some type of depression, anti-psychotic medications either at the time of the shooting or had only recently been removed from them! This goes all the way back to Columbine! They’ve also been registered Dems or their families were if they were too young to vote yet. The Batman movie theater shooter actually worked for Obama’s campaign & was on numerous anti-psychotic meds!

          • Laddyboy

            kwkurtz44: LOOK at the last words in the “Second Amendment”. It states, “shall NOT be INFRINGED”! These words blow your comment out of the water. Our forefathers have said MANY times that the People should have weapons that EQUAL the ability of the Military. Look in the “Federal Papers”. The only “GUN CONTROL” espoused by our forefathers was that a JUST man WITHOUT MALIS(hate/wanting to hurt others) has the right to own/posses/carry/control a weapon.
            OH! “other civilized country”, have you seen what these OTHER countries have done to their people? Germany, China, Russia, North Korea, Syria, Iraq, Iran These are only a few of your “OTHER CIVILIZED COUNTRIES” that have gun control. Let EACH and EVERY man be RESPONSIBLE for his/her actions in actions towards others.
            I bet you do not believe in corporal punishment(the death sentence by the State) either.
            Cars were not known at the time of the FOUNDING OF AMERICA. WEAPONS WERE KNOWN BEFORE AMERICA WAS FOUNDED. Your argument has no air for your sails.
            The “Old West” had gun control due to the fact that unknown People were “DRIFTING” with the wind. These “DRIFTERS” were often Criminals looking to escape punishment where they “left”.

            Remove the guns from the “law abiding” People, THEN, you will only have criminals with guns.

            Police are NOT to PROTECT you! Your protection in in YOUR HANDS. This comment comes from the Supreme Courts, NOT me. Police are only CIVIL SERVANTS, ENFORCERS, not MAKERS of LAW.

            So you just defended my position, a just man without malice is allowed to possess a gun, screening before issuing a license to possess a gun, only determines whether he is a just man.without malice. So you can infringe upon the rights of those individuals.

            Your argument about the old west having gun control means they were being unconstitutional also. Protection against drifters, we don’t have drifters now? I do not propose we should take away everyone’s guns, but merely pointing out that there have been presidents for gun control in the past. I have never in any of my posts advocated taking away fire arms for protection from the people. I have only advocated stricter gun control laws, which we need direly. Why do you want people that are unfit to own guns to have them. That is just irresponsible and down right stupid.

            I realize that courts have ruled that Police are not there to protect us, but dozens of Police Departs still have their motto “To Serve and Protect” on their squad cards even. It is the official motto of the LAPD among many others. If it is not their function, then we are living in a police state, where they are just here to control the masses and raise revenue through fines. Too many Police Officers are not fit to be officers either, the profession attracts power hungry psychos that go on major power trips when given a gun. (There are many fine dedicated officers also.) There needs to be better psychological testing for potential officers. I will start having a greater respect for the police, when the good ones start turning in the bad ones.

            EXACTLY! Having worked as a 911 dispatcher for years, armed homeowners more times than not, actually caught the perpetrator(s) & unless their life was under immediate threat, the armed homeowners usually just called to ask for a police presence. And that was to just collect & remove said criminals – the armed homeowners rarely to never actually started blowing holes in the criminals immediately & requested assistance after – that ONLY happened if the perps went in firing (if they had guns) or slashing (if they favored blades of sometype). MOST armed homeowners only turned the tables and held the criminals at gunpoint as they called us (911) to ask we please roll units their way & would 9 times out of 10 even comment, “Please tell units dispatched there’s no need to speed to get here, I’m armed & have them considering whether they actually DO think maybe they should reconsider that lack of God they obviously had when they so boldly came in here to inform me that everything I’D worked so hard & honestly purchased was theirs they’d decided. My piece was nearby, fully loaded & well maintained. So, they’re currently subdued at gunpoint, if you’d please just roll units our way I’d appreciate it, but make sure they know as long as they arrive safely, that’s really all we prefer. We’ve disarmed them, and have them – we just need scum removal &paperwork please.”

            The gun control that bloomberg and brady expouse is a total ban on civilian firearm ownership.

            ” Why is it necessary to have a drivers license, the Constitution does not require one.” Driving is a privilege, To “keep and bear arms” is a God given, constitutionally guaranteed right. The founders guaranteed that right to allow the people a means to dethrone a tyrant. The tyrant won’t come until the weapons that are effective against the illegal standing army (department of homeland tyranny) are grabbed, or made ineffective by magazine capacity restrictions and such. Please read again, what Hitler, Stalin and Mao did about civilian weapons before they slaughtered 130 million people in the twentieth century. This is not a benign effort to protect citizens, it is a plan to get us defenseless.

            The problem is, that as soon as we give up the fight against registration the federal government will have a list. The list is the final step before confiscation. As soon as we are without arms of a grade that would make resistance to tyranny a feasible plan, an outright soviet-style tyranny will be implemented. The quasi-legal framework and departmental framework has been established and the prison space is ready.

        Left/Right, black/white, Christian/heathen, Jew-Christian/towel, legal immigrant/illegal immigrant. MSNBC/FOX, all these divisions that have been trained to hate each other are just diversions. They have been stirred to hatred against each other by people that plan to destroy national borders, sovereignty, and currencies so they can control the new world currency and world government. Little george implemented the Dept. of Homeland tyranny, uhbamma quadrupled funding and began the process of funneling used military hardware to local and state police depts. while supplying tactical training and heavy weapons to American police forces all over the country. This is FAR beyond political party affiliation. The quasi-legal framework for tyranny has been slowly and silently been set up by both sides of the isle, starting back in the early 1960’s. JFK was assassinated 7 days after he wrote a memo stating that “there is a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman, and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.” Don’t think that neocons and neocoms are going different ways. They are on the same bus, singing different songs. Trying and succeeding to keep us distracted from the overall direction.

    • ESQ

      ? Who’s going to enforce this Martial Law?

      • Laddyboy

        mr. obama THINKS the Military will enforce the Martial Law. Remember the question on the questionare: “Will you shoot on Americans when/if ordered?”. I pray that the Military has woke up to this “person who occupies the President’s Office”.

        • Mac Boy

          CONSIDER THIS – – –

          305 MILLION Americans …. over 1/2 own guns – most are retired Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard – Military – also Police, Sheriff, Highway Patrol and Private security.

          You really think that an order from Obama (** Martial Law** ), will be followed,

          for our Military to attack their own families, friends and relatives ??

          NO WAY! – obama’s so-called “army” will be out-numbered 250 to 1 !!!

          • Will

            That is the crux, and the reason little george implemented the DHS which uhbamma has quadrupled, while at the same time dismantling the military services. It won’t matter if uhbamma is the tyrant or not. A tyrant WILL come. I’m afraid it is going to be a bloody mess. Uhbamma’s standing army will be federal, state, county and local police forces, run by DHS, with back-up from UN “peacekeepers” if needed. The contract for Haliburton to build fema re-education camps was for enough space to inter 50 million people. The world government thugs don’t plan on going quietly into the night.

        • Will

          ‘bamma has asked and been told hell no by the troops. He is dismantleing the services, using PTSD as an excuse to disarm returning soldiers and has been pouring money into DHS to be the federal arm of all state, county and local police forces. They are the standing army.

      • Will

        The department of homeland tyranny. Why did you think uhbamma quadrupled their budget and has been cutting military budgets? DHT is manned by thugs who have been indoctrinated to see American citizens as the enemy. Who else has the man-power and military hardware to demolish America?

      • Will

        Have you heard of the Department of Homeland Security (Tyranny)? Little george implemented it, then uhbamma quadrupled funding and began using it to train policemen in tactics and heavy weapons. The plans originate in obscure UN bodies that when they are completed, get quietly fed into our national code, and state and local laws. Codex Alimentarius, Rex 84, UN small arms treaty etc. The police have been academy-trained into fearful ‘come home at night at any cost’ enemies of the public. Then better trained in heavy weapons and tactical situations by the DHS. They are the standing army the founders warned us about. The way I see it, we will be presented with two options; 1) Willingly be subjects (before or after indefinite detention at fema re-education camps) or 2) Die standing up at the hands of mercenary, heavily armed, combat soldier-looking police. I believe conflict of that nature is baked in the cake. My decision is to put as many thugs in wheel-chairs as I can before they mow me. One house at a time, they may run out of thugs before we run out of Americans.

  • Cynic

    I stopped trusting and believing government in 1964. That’s when LBJ decided that he could use the White House to change the world, and Goldwater went down in flames to trying to take us back to our republican roots. I was 14. I haven’t seen one thing since — not one thing — to make me trust government again.

  • bygeorge

    “The Regime Uses Words and Phrases Designed to Bamboozle Us!” How true that is. It’s a practice that falls under two categories: Outright lies, like we hear daily from Obama and his idiot press secretaries, Josh and Jay, and propaganda, as was used so efficiently by a fellow named Joseph Goebbels, a few years ago. To obfuscate, confuse and deflect criticism is the reason to lie and propagandize but the end goal is to overcome voters, especially the low information ones, products of a dumbed down education since the 1960’s.

    Americans have a misplaced, but fast eroding faith in our Government. At first we could not force ourselves to believe, despite all evidence to the contrary, that our Federal government had become a thuggish criminal organization, its ranks filled with greedy cheats and tax evaders with the sole intent of retaining political power and nothing else. Obama’s programs are prima facie, unconstitutional. Any ruling from a liberal judge that supports government edicts does not change the simple fact that their programs, rules, laws and edicts, still do not meet the levels of constitutionality intended by our founders.

    When Americans finally lose all faith in their government, as Obama’s government is surely accomplishing, then that government, for its own self-defense, will become despotic, militaristic and tyrannical. The Obama controlled media does not help in Americans keeping faith with their government. When that faith is finally lost, it’s lost for a long, long time.

    From our own administration, officials whose every utterance is now suspected as a fabrication if not a outright lie, like we get from the IRS officials, the flow of Obama’s propaganda continues apace. Worse, it comes not from a single sourced minister of propaganda, but from a deluge of every idiot with a microphone put in front of him, like Reid, Hoyer. Pelosi and Durbin, and that closes the doors to legitimate arguement and discourse.

Why is the BP and ICE taken from theirinland jobs and put ONLY on the border? Why are sanctuary cities allowed to cater to people that crossed our borders ILLEGALLY?

      • Will

        Laying the blame at the feet of the media (or even elected officials) is staying back one or two steps from the antagonist. The media is controlled. The polis are controlled. Our problem is finding and killing the controller. The NSA is beyond control of congress and the executive, and is basically the snitch that tells the antagonists who it is in legislation or executive positions that are doing something they are not authorized to do, by the antagonist. We can’t starve out the media because those that are our true enemy have the money and desire to keep them floating. Can MSNBC survive on their lousy little viewership? Not for 6 months. Who supports that lie factory? Will he ever run out of money? Doubtful. We are living in a very matrix-like time. When we pull back the curtain, it is an ugly and frightening sight. Truth is still better than a fantasy. Back to the story: Trust in government is misplaced. They are running a scam that will lead to totalitarian world government.

      The truth of Paragraph 3 can be seen by the huge, high-cost, high-tech spy agency and the department of homeland tyranny armed up to do battle with the American people. By definition, law-abiding citizens don’t need to be thugged over to stay law-abiding, This fascination with disarming and weakening American patriots and returning soldiers is being done for a reason. What do our elected officials know is coming or what are they planning on doing to us that would motivate us to be a threat to said elected officials? They are acting as if they are terrified that the American people will rise up against them. Why else would they care about how many rounds a standard capacity magazine holds?

    Most of my concerns is the indecision that the white house has demonstrated, or when it comes to major issue our President believes he has the responsibility to ignore the constitution and just create what ever bill that suits his own agenda, that isn’t the way our system is to work. Congress is being paid quite well, so why haven’t the Senate brought up any proposals that the members of the senate can debate the issues.Securing our borders why isn’t this a separate issue and the enphaces being place on securing our borders especially with ebolia spreading to several countries now. We have had TB brought into this country, Swine-flu chickenpox let us not forget the terrorist treat, why isn’t this a major concern of our politicians? We have a attorney general who has been derelict in the performance of his job by not intervening in the IRS scandal, or the fast and furious scandal, transparency I have been waiting for 6 years and haven’t seen anything that is remotely transparency.

It’s a practice that falls under two categories: Outright lies, like we hear daily from Obama and his idiot press secretaries, Josh and Jay, and propaganda, as was used so efficiently by a fellow named Joseph Goebbels, not too many years ago.

    The radical Islamic – Iraqi problem now engulfing the middle-east, were not unknown to Obama. He knew that would happen when he withdrew America’s military out of the region and drew ‘Red Lines” in the sand. Why would he do that? Because it’s another crisis that takes our eyes off his own crimes, like Fast and Furious, his roll in the Benghazi murders, his attack on conservatives using the IRS, his attack on a free press, his financing, with tax payer funds, of failing unions and business’s to empty our treasury and his failed immigration policy. I had to have missed something!

    What do we get from Obama for all the crisis his administration is responsible for? More propaganda and lies. In Goebbels time, the party tightly controlled the means of mass communication. In today’s electronic media savvy world of the Internet and smart phones, TV and talk radio, why do lies and propaganda still appeal to over 50% of the populous? It’s all perception and illusion of course, created by the propagandists trick of repeating the same lie over and over and over again. A compliant press helps maintain the charade. Obama must keep up the facade of competence because “Losing an illusion makes us wiser than finding a truth.”

    Americans still have a misplaced, but eroding faith in our Government. At first we could not force ourselves to believe, despite all evidence to the contrary, that our Federal government had become a thuggish criminal organization, its ranks filled with greedy cheats and tax evaders with the sole intent of retaining political power and nothing else. Obama’s programs are prima facie, unconstitutional. Any ruling from a liberal judge that supports government edicts does not change the simple fact that their programs, rules, laws and edicts, still do not meet the levels of constitutionality intended by our founders.

    When Americans finally lose all faith in their government, as Obama’s government is surely accomplishing, then that government, for its own self-defense, will become despotic, militaristic and tyrannical. It is at this point, that all law enforcement officers should reflect on their solemn oaths to “protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic”. Chief’s of Police, Sheriff’s, Marshall’s, Federal Agents, National Guard and military Reserve Commanding Officers, in all categories’, should recognize their oath’s and refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws forced upon us by the developing domestic enemy which is now our Federal Government. The Obama controlled media does not help in Americans keeping faith with their government. When that faith is finally lost, it’s lost for a long, long time. Thank God, I finally got my official Obama Bull S___ decoder ring in the mail.

    From our own administration, officials whose every utterance is now suspected as a fabrication if not a outright lie, like we get from the IRS officials, the flow of Obama’s propaganda continues apace. Worse, it comes not from a single sourced minister of propaganda, but from a deluge of every idiot with a microphone put in front of him, like Reid, Hoyer. Pelosi and Durbin, thus closing the doors to legitimate inquiry.

    Liberals repeatedly bite the hand that feeds them

    It is disappointing that the mind(s) of liberals do not reveal much care, intelligence, or depth – they absolutely do not understand how life works or how the world supports life

    Life is about work: moderates & conservatives are people who enjoy working to make the world a better place for life AND liberals are parasites who enjoy making the world horrible place for life

    How can you trust the most corrupt administration in the history of this once great country, the useless in charge is taking all of us for a ride into poverty, as long as there are lying dumbocrats this country will never rebound.

  • Lloyd Revalee

    Speak for yourself, you do not speak for all Americans. A lot of us still believe in the American dream, our Constitution, and most of our government. The people working in the various departments, work hard and do their best to do things right. Its the Department heads, political friends of whoever is in office, that cause the problems. Overall, our government will be pretty much the same as it used to be, if we can just get rid of the liberal Democrats, socialists or communists, whichever you want to call the sneaky cowards. It is a terrible shame and disgrace that a man like Harry Reid can stop all legislative action in our government, and then claim that it is the fault of a do nothing Republican House of Representatives who are to blame, when he refuses to even look at the numerous bills they have submitted to the Senate. That is a serious violation of our Constitution, for there is an established procedures for processing our laws and no one man should be allowed to stop it.

      Elected officials are bribed, or under threat to families, friends and loved ones, if they disobey their masters. Government workers are like all other workers (although usually at a more comfortable pace) in that they do their jobs as best as circumstances and conditions allow. The tryanical arms of government police (NSA, TSA, FBI, CIA, Dept. of Homeland Security, IRS) are the most dangerous to the citizenry, and should be abolished in most cases and where truly needed, be scaled back and kept on a tight leash by the legislative. We are in great danger from world government proponents, and will be until the legal and departmental framework for tyranny is repealed, abolished, or tightly controlled. Since I can’t see that happening, I will come out and say that societal breakdown, martial law, and soviet-style tyranny is right around the corner. Probably within 6 or 8 years.

    The Politically correct Obamanite / NWO interpretation of National security literally negates a third of the US Constitution; “public safety” and “for the children” litterally negates the other two thirds.

    Paul Brown, I was 16 in 1964, I was going to school at canal zone in Panama and talking to a Green Beret friend of mine who already had spent one year in Nam and at that time this M.Sgt. told me “we will not win that war” I reluctantly disagreed with him but, by 1968 I moved to San Francisco, CA. and it was very clear that war was the “BIG PROFIT” of a few not to establish peace & righteousness and they at DC couldn’t care less how many got wasted, we fought for over 10 years for nothing, it is curious how a Special Forces Sgt. in 1964 knew the answer but, nobody listened; today is not different, they always have to find an ENEMY to inflict fear and take the taxpayers to the cleaners, problem is too many stupid people buy that crap.

  • Bob Honiker

    This Nation was founded on the premise that all governments tend to grow, take on power, and ABUSE THAT POWER. We have encouraged government to grow beyond the point where we can control it. I don’t see much hope, not enough people really care or have the courage to fight for reform.

  • MidwayBill

    I believe the Founders had every intention of not trusting government. That is what they tried to convey in their discussions. Many of us will believe whatever a politician says at election time, then we wonder what is happening when they act the opposite of what they campaigned on. The founders knew if the citizens did not stay engaged ( and that does NOT include asking for public dole, as many think), then the elected representatives of the people would lean toward enriching and bettering themselves at the cost of the taxpayers. Public assistance programs and pork barrel spending is just a way for politicians to buy votes. It is human nature, something the Founders realized could happen. There are term limits, but when a region elects a politician that is particularly adept at bringing home the bacon to their district, then voting citizens are more than willing to ignore those “term limits”. Sure, you’re getting government benefits in some form or another, but at what ultimate price? Government largesse cannot go on indefinitely.

    “The quest for an honest politician may be a futile one, and we’re probably a long way from turning American sentiment in favor of Washington.” How sad is that statement? There are good & decent individuals fully capable of being an honest politician. With the way the MSM and opposing parties go after a candidate, twist & turn every little detail into a mud fest who truly wants to fight that battle. Some little indiscretion when in grade school if annotated will bite the prospective candidate in the ass, be blown way out of proportion. They even go after the family members, (Palin). You simply can’t be an open and honest candidate. The media capturing a conservative and turning the interview into a mockery like the one recently in Portland Oregon. Blame the media and the really disgusting individuals, such as Shultz, Reid, Emanuel, Axlerod & Jarrett for the majority of distortions.

  • believe

    1) I stopped trusting Our Government when I researched and found that 70% of the Senate and 40% of Congress are all Socialist.

    2) When Obama got in and brought with him in the White House His whole regime ara Marxist, dont want to believe? take some time a research his staff. Valeri Jerrett is his Adviser and she is a registered Marxist.

    And you can only guess where there going to take America.
    If we had more Governors like Perry that had his Back Bone ,Obama wouldn’t be setting in the Oval Office, He would have been brought up on charges of Treason.
    and hung.

  • Maggiemae

    There was a time in my life that I did trust my President to do the best for America. I also trusted my Senators and Representative. Sad to say, those days are gone, gone and gone! I have no faith or trust that anything this administration does is for the good of America or it’s people. I was trying to think of one single thing that I was just even content with. Nothing at all came to mind. I could, however, spew out numerous things that I have been extremely ticked off about that has gone on. I don’t believe one single word that comes out of this ‘presidents’ mouth as everything he states is later determined to be false. I think every single person in Congress, as well as the President should have term limits….defintely shorter limits for the President. For Mr. Obama one 4 year term would have been too much. It’s hard for me to fathom all the crap that we have endured….Fast & Furious, IRS, NSA, Benghazi, VA, Bergdahl trade, the welcoming of thousands of illegal immigrants. Scandal after scandal. The worst part is – NO SOLUTION OR ANSWER FOR ANYTHING. When my kids lied or did something they shouldn’t, a proper punishment was in order for the offense. Apparently the people we have running this Country have never had to be accountable for anything they did. All that is coming home to roost in a way that is and will be extremly detrimental to America. I just don’t know when that hammer will fall and which part of America will get hit first. But it’s coming……..

    Try to convince CNN viewers that Obama lies. The low-info voters are those who refuse to watch any other news media….
    CNN and MSNBC are their only sources, and they refuse to acknowledge truth.

  • jbftskj

    After multiple scandals and reports of govt. treachery, Obama remains in office, testimony to the iron grip political correctness has on the US. If he were white, he would have been impeached in his first term. It will be interesting to see how the GOP moves after the Nov. election, when, as expected, Democrats lose control of the Senate. Very interesting.

  • It has been by design that OBAMA has planted so many seeds, conducted himself as an enemy of America rather than an advocate, and representative I’m surprised that more people didn’t wake up sooner! Is there any doubt left now?

  • jbftskj

    AMERICANS have lost all trust, but the illegals and entitlement crowd won’t let go of their dole without a fight. Conservatives and fed-up Democrats will have to turn up at the polls en mass in the next few elections, if the trend to 3rd World status is to be reversed, and if the US is to survive as a free nation.

    • Will

      Third world status is baked in the cake from 35 years of borrow and spend rigganomics. The republic can survive but we will be in perpetual poverty from the perpetual debt that has been built up by both sides of the isle.

  • kwkurtz44

    Will…unlike the majority of the posters on here you seem to have a certain degree of intelligence, and your remarks are worthy to be taken in to account. That doesn’t mean I agree with them, but, at least you put forth some thought before you post. Nothing you say is going to change my beliefs, or anything I can say will change yours. But that is what posting should be a healthy exchange of perspectives.

    Does the Constitution .guarantee us the right to bear arms, yes of course. However there have been many amendments to The Constitution. Our forefathers could not have foreseen the dramatic change in weapons that has taken place over the years. The 2nd Amendment could definitely use some updating.

    As far as Hitler goes do some research! ” University of Chicago law professor Bernard Harcourt explored this myth in depth in a 2004 article published in the Fordham Law Review. As it turns out, the Weimar Republic, the German government that immediately preceded Hitler’s, actually had tougher gun laws than the Nazi regime. After its defeat in World War I, and agreeing to the harsh surrender terms laid out in the Treaty of Versailles, the German legislature in 1919 passed a law that effectively banned all private firearm possession, leading the government to confiscate guns already in circulation. In 1928, the Reichstag relaxed the regulation a bit, but put in place a strict registration regime that required citizens to acquire separate permits to own guns, sell them or carry them.

    The 1938 law signed by Hitler that LaPierre mentions in his book basically does the opposite of what he says it did. “The 1938 revisions completely deregulated the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as ammunition,” Harcourt wrote. Meanwhile, many more categories of people, including Nazi party members, were exempted from gun ownership regulations altogether, while the legal age of purchase was lowered from 20 to 18, and permit lengths were extended from one year to three years.

    The law did prohibit Jews and other persecuted classes from owning guns, but this should not be an indictment of gun control in general. Does the fact that Nazis forced Jews into horrendous ghettos indict urban planning? Should we eliminate all police officers because the Nazis used police officers to oppress and kill the Jews? What about public works — Hitler loved public works projects? Of course not. These are merely implements that can be used for good or ill, much as gun advocates like to argue about guns themselves. If guns don’t kill people, then neither does gun control cause genocide (genocidal regimes cause genocide).”

    Gun ownership SHOULD be a privilege and be regulated, in my opinion. I don’t want crazy people with guns, anymore than I want crazies driving. And, I am sure you don’t either. To say it is a God given right is just ridiculous, guns were not even in existence when The Bible was written. And unless God has made a personal revelation to you, how could you know he wants us all to have one. Rather, he is pretty adamant about that “Thou shalt not kill!” thing, and doesn’t make any exceptions..

    • Will

      If enough people agreed to change the second amendment into something legally allowing federal government to infringe on that God-given right, I’d be happy to go along. I abide by the law. Federal code that doesn’t abide by the constitution is the start of slippery slope, out of control government. We are 160 years down the slippery slope and at the free falling stage. I know I am too late to save the republic, but hope springs eternal or you’ve given up. “Thou shalt not commit murder” would be a better translation of the commandment. God has given man the right to protect himself and family, from thieves and murderers (they used swords and even rocks before that). Our second amendment is just the governmental guarantee of that right. The founders were very familiar with the machinations of tyrants and were concerned that American citizens would be able to defeat those tyrants in our day. We can agree to disagree on whether the 2nd, is a real carved in stone right, (it is) but it isn’t just the 2nd that is under attack by this latest administration. The first now during brak, during little george the 4th and for decades the tenth. Like I said, we are over the cliff. Sorry ’bout pounding away in earlier comments, I didn’t realize you had already finalized your say.

  • We now have perpetual war – a never ending blood money flow for the world’s central bankers and conglomerate monopolies to feed from. I love our military – thank you Mr. Brown – but am sick at the way our young people are being misused for Globalist agendas having no relationship to liberty. Our military is not a private police force to be used by the Global Elite to enforce their NWO agenda. As citizens we need to adopt an agenda of our own whereby we never re-elected an incumbent regardless how good or what party. Career politicians are the meat Elite handlers and money bundlers can get their teeth into. Dump career politicians, dump the Federal Reserve Criminal Enterprise and we will see war come to an abrupt stop.

  • Robert

    Even our Founding Fathers realized that government is NEVER TO BE TRUSTED!! It has a purpose but it is a necessary evil that must be held in check.with STRONG LIMITATIONS. Otherwise you will have what we currently have in America now.

  • adrianvance

    With Obama trashing the Constitution and picking the laws he wants to enforce plus changing laws as will we have already collapsed.

    But between Demrats hate KKK and GOP who are more worse?Majority of politician run not because won a doing a different, but for money and power, but before 2008 how much corrupt in general was politician? and later six years how much are today? My question are to specific, if you see how are politician in another Country with socialism, can said 99.99% are corrupt, and a big corruption start together with Dems in 2008. But in my opinion GOP are much less corrupt, maybe 50 and 50, but are politician who won Justice, and good times was for all with GOP in power, but never with Dems. In last six years a voter can see and balance how corrupt, lie and criminal hate are Dem, and I thing voter be will doing a different next election time and a GOP be will have a job to finish a job who voter decide.Nobuma must to go in any way,a good thing for start are start impeach and fired a corrupt Judges any where be will no place for any liberals judges no where. All who lot of American suffer today must go to lebears, let suffer for long all liberals. last election Voter make mistake and next be will fix a mistake. Dems are to much corrupt, but voter was see enough.
