In Government We Do NOT Trust

A chart for my non-U.S. readers. . .this is why the Tea Party Movement is growing. . .this is why ObamaCare is so unpopular:

Public confidence in government is at one of the lowest points in a half century, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. Nearly 8 in 10 Americans say they don't trust the federal government and have little faith it can solve America's ills, the survey found.

[. . .]

The survey found that just 22 percent of those questioned say they can trust Washington almost always or most of the time and just 19 percent say they are basically content with it. Nearly half say the government negatively effects their daily lives, a sentiment that's grown over the past dozen years.

  1. And as the foreign readers can see, this chart also confirms that the US government uses foreign wars to improve its popularity, confirming their suspicions.

    It never fails to amaze me how Americans sheepishly fall in line behind an unpopular president even about a fake, unconstitutional war against a puppet enemy. The state is the average American's ultimate idol, after money.
