Poll Shows Americans Consider Government To Be Broken

March 4, 2010 by  

Poll shows Americans consider government to be brokenAn overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the United States government system is broken, but most also say that there is some hope for it to improve, according to a recent CNN-Opinion Research Corporation poll.

The study found that a staggering 86 percent of U.S. residents hold such negative opinion about their government, an increase from 77 percent three years ago.

However, only 5 percent of them believe the government cannot be fixed, while 81 percent still hold out hope for improvement, which is 10 percent more than in late 2006.

Keating Holland, CNN polling director, said that the increase in the number of Americans who see their government as broken is the most pronounced among higher-income individuals and those who live in rural areas.

"Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but those are the groups that make up the bulk of the Tea Party [movement] today," he suggested, quoted by the news network’s website.

According to a separate CNN-Opinion Research Corporation poll, activists in the Tea Party movement—which was created last year in response to the massive stimulus package passed by Congress and signed by President Obama—tend to be male, rural, upscale and are overwhelmingly conservative.

    “tend to be male, rural, upscale and are overwhelmingly conservative.”
    This sounds like leadership at large.

  • Tim

    Look for CNN, Matthews, MSNBC, etc, to slam anyone associated with Tea Party ideals that will be running against the dems. They are part of the reason there’s a swamp in DC as Pelosi said she was going to drain. To drain it, will be to vote them all out, and watch for cnn,ms, and mainstrean to continue to decline.

    • Warrior

      The problem is pelosi is acting as the drain stopper!

      • Tina

        Let us not forger Harry Reid. Palosi and Reid are like a bad fungus that has spread across Washington’s political front. I can’t wait for the day they are both voted out of office.

      • Joe H.

        Warrior,
        No pelousy, reid, and bawney are the sludge and grime at the bottom that just plug up the drain. Get rid of them and the drain will run freely!!! Believe me, I worked on a plumbing crew for abourt three and a half years i know these things!!! HAHAHA!

  • knuckleballer

    Government is out of control at all levels. It can still be fixed, but time is running out.

    • Mr.M

      What about Jessi Jackson Rev Wright & the new Rev Falcon
      That is about as far LEFT as you can get!

      • DDC

        Mr.M what a laugh they are and you forgot about like to be Pope Al Sharpton

  • Dale

    Great Documentary will soon be released called “Generation Zero” . . . Norm and Phil need to watch this . . . it spends an hour and a half on how the USA got into the state its in today . . . every citizen needs to watch this . . . there is only one way out, and it won’t be pleasant. But, the alternative is more of the same . . . then the whole country will look like Kalifornistan.

    • JeffH

      I mentioned Generation Zero in another post, and you a right about watching that doc. Should be very enlightening. Thanks.

      • Phil

        The problem with you rightwing radicals on this site is that you think Glenn Beck teaches history and you think rightwing magizines are history books…I already know you don’t understand how congress works….. By the way… Did you hear that Karl Rove finally says the Iraq war may have been a mistake and it hurt their credibility that they found NO WMDS…did ya think wasting all those lives and money hurt our country??? Sure we should give repubs the goverment back

        • JeffH

          ..and the problem with you lefties is you think you are saving the world! You guys and gals have contributed more to the downfall of our economic system and a free America than any other disaster in the world, natural or man made. Over-regulation, the EPA and straight up intrusion into the lives of American families. All you want to do is regulate the other guy, his life, his family, what color car he can drive, what size TV he’ll be allowed to watch, how he kills the weeds in his yard, political correctness, whether he has a right to defend his property, his country and , yes, whether he can own a gun or not.
          Global warming and climate control. Is there any facet of an Americans life that you don’t want to control or for that matter don’t want the government to control?
          Anti-American, Marxist, Socialist or straight up Communists, you’re all barking up the wrong tree. Americams have had it and it is time for a change. That change is to rid ourselves of the very disease we have allowed our country to be infected with. Liberalism ie Anti-American, Marxist, Socialist or straight up Communists.

    • Phil

      Dale, again… No.. The 2006 democrat congress was called the ” Do nothing Congress” by Republicans for passing the least bills in the prior 20 years… They past nothing at all that caused the recession… Find a bill they past.. And Bush had veto power… Are you trying to tell me the democrats past a bill that damaged our economy that the republicans( Bush) could have veto’d The problem seems to be that you don’t know how the goverment works…. The 2006 congress could pass NOTHING..

      • Dale

        Doesn’t change anything Phil . . . Congress controlls the purse strings . . . uncontestable FACT!!!
        How many bills did Bush Veto . . . can’t recall 1 . . . can you???
        As far as the economic global collapse . . . goes right back to Fannie/Freddie and the trillions is worthless morgages fenced all over the world in bogus Derivatives . . . this is Mostly Owned by Dimmicraps and a few repugs. But Bush twice tried to reign in Fannie/Freddie . . . its all in the records . . . if you care to check!!!

        • Phil

          Dale…who provides congress with the budget?… And didn’t the budgets contain the cost of two wars?..now name a bill the democrats past that could have possibly put the country in the worse recession in 60 years….? You just avoid answering any questions at all… It’s called avoiding responsibility…

          • Dale

            What the wars have cost is pennies compared to the Trillions being flushed down the drain by the utter clowns occupying the WH, Congress and Senate today . . . if you are still harping about the wars . . . with all that has gone on in the last 18 months . . . you are just stuckonstupid . . . the Bamster has an agenda . . . it is not for a prosperous, free, employed USA . . . if you haven’t figured that out yet, neither I or anyone else can help you.

        • eyeswideopen

          Dale, you are correct, as early as June 2000, both were under investigation. In defense of Bush, he tried to reign them in during 2003, but the republican controled Senate and House, who doesn’t believe in regulations, refused to even look at the situation.

          • chuck b

            conservatives are not easily brainwashed. the weaker minded have a tendency to turn into liberals.

      • Joe H.

        Philly Brand,
        Earlier you gave a poster hell for their spelling. I would like to bring to your attention that the word past that you use is in connection to time, the word you should be using is PASSED!!! Now who is the IDIOT????? Obviously you never P-A-S-S-E-D english grammer!!!

      • Meteorlady

        Phil and Eyes in case you didn’t read the above. Bush stated he would veto and the congress said they would override – so what was the point?

        Even with both wars, Bush was not increasing the deficit. In Fact in 2004 the budget was highest it got and then started to decrease through 2007, with 2007 being the lowest. The 2008 and 2009 budgets were voted on by a mostly Democratic congress and started increase significantly in 2008. In 2009 the Obama administration said they deficit would be $1.75 trillion while the CBO estimate is $1.85 trillion. As the estimates go through 2019 they steadily get more skewed with the Obama figures and the CBO figures with 2019 being the worst with CBO estimate of $1.2 trillion and Obama’s estimate of $800 billion.

  • Claire

    “Polls Show Americans Consider Government to be Broken” —Well, yeah, it is has been broken for years and years. A steady, continuing path with dire consequences. Greed, corruption, dishonesty, deceit, backroom dealings, lack of transparency and ethics, and on and on. It is time for Americans to make the changes.

    • Fed Up Gal in Nm

      Claire,

      While you’re right about your corruption and lack of ethics commments, even some American citizens and uninvited visitors (illegal aliens) have been corrupt and deceptive in their actions. As long as our society continues to live in a “victim” status…this will continue.

      Fed Up Gal

      • Claire

        Fed Up Gal in NM–My post was mainly about politicians. However, I agree with you, there are some American citizens that leave a lot to be desired, especially with their connections to the White House and Congress. The illegals should be rounded up and sent back to where they came from. And it appears the government is certainly dragging their feet on this issue, and why? I think you and I both know why. Heck, they rounded up all the Japanese here in the U.S. during World War II–why don’t they do the same now? There are too many shady shenanigans going on and the American public is being kept in the “dark.” We would be really ticked off if we “knew” everything that was going on. Our elected politicians must be held accountable for everything they “concoct” concerning America.

  • Harold Olsen

    Tea Partiers “..tend to be male, rural, upscale and are overwhelmingly conservative.” It figures that a poll conducted by CNN would claim this. The left also claims that Tea Partiers are only white male conservatives, You get that a lot from idiots like Matthews, Olberman and Maddow on MSNBC, when, in fact, the Tea Partiers are a cross sections of Americas of all races, genders and political beliefs. The problem with our government are the low-life scumbags that are running it and doing their best to destroy our economy and our nation. Get rid of them and we WILL be able to fix it. Show a lack of intelligence when you vote by voting in the same morons and nothing will get fixed. There’s and old saying that I believe applies here: “If you are not a part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.”

  • s c

    Screw CNN. They need a high colonic and a 20 mile hike with a full field pack, plus an attitide adjustment with a baseball bat. Then and only then we can talk about REAL media journalism and integrity.
    Whatever we have had to endure in Washington for many years is anything but leadership. Leadership is more than a word. It is a way of life. Of course, some don’t understand that because they are easily brainwashed, and they rarely have to leave the fantasy world that keeps them warm and safe at night.
    Screw them, too. Freedom isn’t ‘free.’ No one forces them to stay here. Canada is north, and Mexico is south. We need real citizens who have functioning brains. Fakers and assorted vermin are found everywhere – especially in major political parties and population centers.

  • http://www.breakingnewsjournal.net&www.popham08.com Popham

    Mr. Olsen:
    We could not have said it any better than that. We must,
    of course consider the ‘source’. Indeed, everyone knows that the
    Tea Party Movement is comprised of concerned, patriotic Americans
    from all walks of life, color, creed and level of prosperity.
    In other words, it is made up of a viable and vocal cross-section of the citizenry.
    If plurality in a democracy, such as ours, really exists, then our
    voices will be heard on Nov. 2nd.
    Thanks.

  • James

    Harold O., Who are the low-life scum-bags running it? Name one.

  • Barb

    Harold Olsen and Popham,
    Right on!! CNN and all the Maintream media are scared of the TEA Party Movement and will spin it every chance they get. You are right I’m proud to say I’m a Tea Partier and every one I’ve been to has had a complete cross-section of this wonderful country! It is beautiful to see such diversity in color, creed, culture and political leanings all together fighting for the same thing- A free America, Under God, By the People, By the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of this wonderful country and we want to keep it that way! NOT as a Socialistic Marxist Regime as Obama and company along with the media wants.

  • Phil

    Glenn Beck is doing his best to make you paranoid… Most of the people on this site parrott his talking points over and over… I think his crying is a sign of mental illness

  • Joe H.

    This is not a hard opine to come by. the government is getting more and more “broke” as the years go by!!!
    As far as the tea party goes, how many of you lovely ladies out there are either members or agree with what they believe???

  • home boy

    hope! you have a better chance of seeing a cow poop butter.

  • Time

    The facts are the people we have allowed to run the Government are BROKEN.
    “The “basic format” is still sound, that being the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Where this has all taken a very wrong turn is with the advent of a few factors.
    #1, A Poorly run education system, this is a base building block, from this well springs the future.
    When children are missinformed as well outright lied to to replace history, logic, let alone Common sense with what can only be noted as pretzel logic, as in Yellow is not yellow its really Orange.
    What can anyone really expect to happen.

    The next step is UNIONS, they have gained way to much power so much so that they are really more like a “MAFFIA,” then a unit to protect workers as they were set up to be.
    Thus again the rewriting of how things work.
    The average person in a Union has no clue what its leaders are doing, Example Andy Stern an open out right Marxist, what is it he does again?

    Then the next platform is the MEDIA, its clearly obvious that most in the media have an agenda, that agenda is no differant than what Gorbels had in Germany. Again note that the Nazi’s used the Youth, and the Unions, as well the MEDIA, strange, Not at all.

    Toss in the candy coating that people like Barry get, who is an out right Marxist, you know the old adage, you are what you hang out with.
    And again the Marxist did the same dance as the Nazi’s, get the Youth, the Unions, and the press.
    Wow how strange is that.

    Our government needs a good cleaning, by that I mean that anyone who has done damage needs to be removed from office.
    Then just about every Law thats been signed into law since 1913, needs to be removed.
    In plain words {Open the doors of FREEDOM again}

    Is the Country broken, No and thats the problem the progressives can’t over come, So if they {say it enough} perhaps you will all agree and allow the Marxist / Nazi plan they have in mind for you to come full circle.

    The question is, are YOU and American or not, do you believe in FREEDOM or not? Its that simple.

  • http://www.theleftisntright.com nyc conservative gal

    My pictures of the tea parties show a different story. They represent every day working folks from all walks of life. The CNN poll is a joke, and must be from the same imaginary land as the fictional districts and zip codes who got stimulus. Let the goverment continue to insult the people. We will provide our rebuttle at the ballot box come November!

  • Norm

    The biggest problem that this country has is that the middle class is shrinking. Put another way, we are getting poorer. Shipping good jobs away, losing our ability to produce our own goods, high unemployment, and high taxes to cover the slave wage workers is taking its toll.
    We need to limit government spending and individual spending accordingly. The great era of the 50′s thru 70′s is behind us.

  • Norm

    Victor L Barney
    I have 2 suggestions:
    1. Stop believing the right wing nonsense spewed by Glenn Beck. The man is cleary mentally handicapped.
    2. Stop believing the radical bible nonsense being spewed by whoever you listen to. I can dig up bible quotes that even you wouldn’t believe.

  • Barb

    Norm, be careful who you call mentally ill, I’m just looking out for you here. Secondly, if the middle class is shrinking which I fail to see, but I’ll humor you to make a point. If it is shrinking there is only one reason, TAXES! The middle class has been put upon since Welfare, Medicaid,
    Public Housing, Food Stamps and all other entitlement without earning programs came about. We have had to not only support our family but several others these 40 years of our marriage. We never met these families never got a thank you from them but we supported them none-the -less. After ever increasing taxes it’s no wonder the middle class is an endangered species! Obama is making the endangerment even greater!

  • Time

    Norm,
    Let me make it clear for you, Barry is hell bent on the destruction of the “Middel class,” what he wants is just like all Marxist / Nazi’s all want – {the Ruling class,} as in the leaders who will gain power by nepotism and out right power grabs. The only ones who will ever get an education that has expansive levels.

    The second class will be the POOR SLAVES, who used to be the MIDDLE CLASS’S. These persons will have the education we now have, worthless rhetoric that confines the brains abilitys, thus makes the people dumb let alone incapable of rational thinking. AKA – PRETZEL LOGIC.
    Thus they will not have the mental ability to reason. As in SLAVES to the party.

    Can you get your head around that.

  • Phil

    Their has been a shift in wealth…. In the past decade the top 2% have got richer and the burden has been put on the middleclass….in 2011 the tax cuts Bush pushed through with Reconciliation will expire which should benifit the middleclass …

  • Phil

    Glenn Beck?.. If he’s forming anyones opinions your in trouble… He’s getting paid to rile people up… It’s nothing more than ” anger entertainment”… Same with Rush… These guys goal is to shock you… They earn their money on your anger….it doesn’t take a person to long watching Glenn Beck to realize he’s missing some marbles…

  • Phil

    I’m sure this country will never be able to go back to the 40′s and 50′ lifestyle some of you conservitives want… The populace and landscape of America is far to diffrent….same with goverment.. The countrys not just white conservatives anymore … And America isn’t a white bible belt country anymore and I believe it frightens a lot of conservatives… That’s why the tea partys…and I believe that’s where President Obama was going when he said some Americans cling to religion and their guns… It was just his observation and I don’t believe he meant it as an insult… Only that we’ve had a change in culture and some people believe it’s a threat… I’m not saying conservatism is bad… I’m saying the country is more diverse that it use to be..

  • eddie47d

    Dale; Unsavory people have always been put on the cover of time magazine over the years. This is not to honor them but to expose them. To show the world that they need to be aware of what they are up to. (It’s called a free press). As far as Adolph being on the cover,apparently no one listened. The world knew what he was up to and did nothing. Stalin was a leftist. “uncle Adolph” and Moussolini leaned to the right. Stalin killed anyone who was rich and educated;Adolph killed Jews (rich and poor) and gays AND union workers and many catholics who stood up to him; Moussolini killed leftists and any worker who defied his government,but protected the wealthy. So there is alot of dirty laundry on the right also.So maybe you are denying reality.

  • Dale

    Ever read a real history book Norm . . . not one written by leftist professors in the 80′s???
    Beck is dragging out all the dirty laundry of the Liberal/leftist folks who were enormous fans of Stalin, Moussolini and Uncle Adolph, before WWII. To say anything different is to deny reality. Go to a library . . . read all the 20′s and 30′s publications . . . it’s gona hurt big time . . .

  • Meteorlady

    Norm – I have two things:

    Stop believing the liberal nonsense spewed by MSNBC
    Maybe attend church and see what’s it’s really about.

  • Blue

    An observation.

    I’ve been trying to understand why a few posters here, such as Norm, Phil, etc., continue to spew ludicrous statements, even after a majority of informed posters, voice verifiable facts for them to understand and/or research.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that they have Sadomasochist (S&M) tendencies and derive pleasure from the constant “mental abuse” they receive. They continue to come back for more for the attention.

  • Dale

    And Phil . . . I believe Bama clings to his religion too!!!
    You’re right about the country being divided . . . its divided into TAKERS and WORKERS . . . Which group do you fall into???
    The takers voted 100% for the Bumster, cause he promised to give them stuff . . . well the stuff is running out, Credit ratings dropping, China closing the bank, more bank failures, mortgage defaults and comm. RE has tanked. Hope you know how to hunt, that will be your only option when the WallMart is empty.

  • http://juno Mr.M

    If you want to see mentally handicapped You only need to look to Rev
    Jessi Jackson, Rev Wright, & the new Rev Falcon. They should fall int the R word.

  • Arkham Grundy

    Beck, like the other media pundits, will spout whatever poison he is paid to. He has ratings because he whips up a certain segment of the population by playing on their fears. If MSNBC offered him more money, he would suddenly become a liberal.

    How can anyone believe in this pompous, self righteous, and self serving clown?

  • Dale

    Beck is reading History Phil . . . holding up Time magazine with the leftist revered Uncle Adolph on the cover . . . pulling long hidden footage out of old movie news vaults . . . this is your history Phil . . . the history of the un-hinged left . . . when despots and dictators were their idols . . .

  • Tina

    I think Beck is a very passionate person. Just because he is not sedate does not make him wrong. I happen to think men who can’t cry end up having mental problems. Crying is a human emotion; it does not belong to one sex or the other. I believe that Glenn Beck is a patriot and that he is extremely passionate about waking up Americans that have been asleep way too long. Someone must stand up and scream at the top of their lungs to get the truth out before it is too late. Why don’t you try researching what he says to find out if he is telling the truth? The truth is what matters, not the way it is stated. Criticize if you can prove that he is lying; otherwise shut up.

  • Time

    Phil,
    So now if someone crys they are mentally ill?
    May I ask where you got your Medical degree from?

  • Dale

    Phil and Norm . . . I first read about the “Progressives” back in the 70′s . . . when I read a book by Gary Allan, he was a Washington Journalist. The book was called “None Dare Call it a Conspiracy”. The Cdn. PM at the time Liberal Trudeau, banned the book in Canada.
    It documented how Progressives financed the Russian Revolution, sending a ship full of Gold Bullion from New York to Moscow, right through WWI lines. Not only did they support the ideology, the sent their funds as well. The ship was detained in Halifax, as it was wartime, but orders came from London to release same ship . . . and the journey continued.
    How did it get through the enemy lines you ask? Paul Warburg, a NY banker, had a brother who was a German General . . . arranged for the passage through Europe.
    Beck is just opening up the vaults, long sealed by Progressives and Liberals . . . to cover their tracks. These folks were and are Globalists, their aim is to destroy the USA. I am sure they are glad to have your help.

  • Arkham Grundy

    Beck is an entertainer, not a journalist. He plays to his audience. How can you buy is BS?

  • http://gmail i41

    Phil and your good buddy Norm, you have to read history books, not lick the glue and chew on the window box maua-e-whowee great dane dropping. It is not good for your remaining thought processes or reasoning. I really think you need a good large animal vet, sounds like inverted cavoroius gut symstemic problem! A banding or bourdezo will help you both. It probably started with the circling disease at an eary age of about 12.

  • Dale

    Ark . . . just list a few examples where the Beckster was wrong . . . . bet you can’t . . .
    The progressives are to the liberals like “dating your sister” . . . got to keep it quiet . . . Beck has turned the light on the dubious past of the commie/fascist loving liberals in the first 40 years of the 20th century . . .

  • Dale

    Where’d you go ARK??? Been waiting for your FACTS!!!!
    Typical lefty . . . just talk . . . if you’re not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. You are by your ignorance facilitating these Progressives/libs/dems to take over your country.
    You must be one of the “TAKER” crowd . . . the party is soon going to end . . . there will be no checks in the mailbox

  • Time

    Arkham,
    So whats the differance “all News persons on all channels” are in the entertainment biz, so whats your point?

    As far as journalist there are non on the Telie, so again I ask whats your point?

  • DDC

    Mr Groundhog Ark don’t get close enough to let him play with you. You might like it

  • Blue

    Achtung Grumpy,

    You’re right about Beck not being a journalist. There are None today. The so-called “JOURNALISTS” of today are all bias to the left. Beck is an analysis and researcher who presents the facts on what these “Journalists” spew out to individuals who “turn the volume down and watch the ‘body language’”.

  • eddie47d

    Harold Olsen; Both Democrates and Republicans are out of favor at the moment. Republican polls are lower than the Democrates. Both conservatives and liberals are mad as hell at government. That’s why the large poll percentage. The tea party folks ARE,by a wide majority white,so why did you bring up race? Remember all your anger is reflected in these poll numbers too.

  • Dale

    eddie . . . Mussolini was a great fan of Marx and Engels . . . but he thought the Bolchiviks were too extreme. Mussolini was a SOCIALIST . . . he invented Fascism . . . It was Marxism LIGHT. Instead of killing all the elites, they used them to manage their confiscated business, and took advantage of their expertise. That is why Fascism was more successful than Communism. Mussolini and Adolph were right, that is correct, they were just to the RIGHT OF STALIN, but far LEFT of WINSTON CHURCHILL. Never in the history of the planet has a “Socialist State” been CONSERVATIVE. This was an invention of the 80′s. Not True.
    NAZI was German abbreviation for “National Socialist Workers Party” . . . not to different from what our friend Stern is promoting today.

  • Phil

    No Beck isn’t reading history… Here’s an example… Before we entered Ww2 America sent money to China to fight the Japanese… Do you suppose any communist used that money & supplys to fight Japan… So were we supporting communism or fighting Japan… Samething Ronald Reagan did during the Iraqi / Iranian war…. Was Reagan supporting Saddam or was it just intended to counter Iran.. So then when Bush 43 wanted to build his case aginst Iraq he claimed Saddam killed a million people and even used chemical weapons on his own people…. Well we helped( Reagan ) Saddam kill those Iranians and Iraqis then turned around and used that aginst Saddam… And when he gassed the Kurds Reagan sat on his hands because it was ok then… Samething happened with Osama bin Ladin…. We helped him fight the Russians , Bush 41 even called Osama a “freedom fighter”…. So were we supporting a terrorist or fighting the Russians… Your example of a boat full of gold to Russia by progressives is full of holes. … Things aren’t always as Beck would have you think…another example… The Hannitys, limbaughs , Becks and republican leaders all say ” Obamas going to raise your Taxes” but what they really should be saying is Obamas letting the Bush tax cuts expire so they will have to pay the tax Rate of the Clinton years…..of course Beck, Hannity and anyother millionairs don’t want that tax break to expire… So they Rant that aibamas raising taxes.. Which just isn’t true…Becks pulling you around by the nose… You better come up with better leaders than Glenn Beck because mainstream America believes he’s a nut… Same with Sarah Palin…. You love her but 72. % of all American believes she’s not fit to be a president…. Even 52% of republicans believe she’s unfit to be a leader….Jeb Bush said in as many polite words as ge could last week that she’s stupid… You better get better leaders if you want to unseat president Obama because he still beats anyone you have in a head to head contest…. It’s only been 1 year… Lots of things can happen in 3 years..

    Dale, if you think all educators are liberals who do you think educated all of your repubs/conservatives who have degrees? So, keeping to the thought process you have, all of those educated repubs/conservs are now liberals and should not be trusted. If they got degrees they must have comprised their values and ideas to get those degrees. Obviously, the repubs presently in college don’t think they are affected by the professors or they wouldn’t be getting educations from those liberal educators. On this site, the rantings of “all teachers are liberals” is funny, as their parents then send them to college for more of the liberal indoctrination. The best teacher ever was Jesus, and he was a liberal/socialist.

    China did not become a counrty under Mao, until when?

    The Chinese were a free country under a man named what?

    Mao was not in running China but he was in fact fighting the “FREE Chinese” more than the Japanese.

    So now to the mass of Americans don’t like Barry, thats a fact.
    Yet its not something thats not expressed by the standard Media you watch with the heavy spin cycle.

    Here is a classic example of the media’s best efforts at making news spin like a top;

They are in denial about the 11 staffers of Reagans who did jail time for the Iran Contra affair.

    The Swastika too was a socialist symbol long before Hitler became influential. Prewar socialists (including some American socialists) used it on the grounds that it has two arms representing two entwined letters “S” (for “Socialist”). So even Hitler’s symbolism was Leftist.

  • Dale

    Principally in that both Churchill and Hitler were anticommunist. And Hitler did to some extent romanticize the past. No real-life political party is purely anything so the fact that Hitler’s Nazism was a mixture of elements should come as no surprise. In economic policy and in disrespect for the individual he was clearly of the Left but his nationalism conflicts with the internationalism that most Marxists preach so has usually served to place Hitler on the Right in modern-day minds. In his day, however, Hitler was not alone in being both Leftist and nationalist. From Napoleon Bonaparte onward, there were many nationalist Leftists prior to Hitler. Even Engels was a German nationalist, in fact. So in his day, Hitler was a mainstream Leftist, only to the Right of Communism. And even in modern times most Leftists are to the Right of Communism. Even his antisemitism was Leftist in his day. Good read . . . see link . . .

    A Leftist prophet

    The ideas of Benito Mussolini (1883-1945), the founder of Fascism, are remarkably similar to the ideas of modern-day Western Leftists. If Mussolini was not the direct teacher of modern-day Leftists, he was certainly a major predecessor. What Leftists advocate today is not, of course, totally identical with what Mussolini was advocating and doing 60 to 80 years ago in Italy but there are nonetheless extensive and surprising parallels. Early in the 20th century, he prophesied that the 20th century would be the century of Fascism and he got that right in that most of his ideas are still preached by the modern-day Left.

    Phil,
    The answer is easy, FDR, the 1930′s is when the first bail outs started it was called the NEW DEAL.

    Ok so now what about the books?

  • Dale

    The First Bailout called “TARP” started right after Soros and company started the run on the banks . . . 500 B sucked out in 3 hours . . . banks shut down. TARP followed a few days later to prop them up.
    But the story gets better, when the TARP funds were paid back they were by LAW supposed to be paid back off the DEBT. Today . . . over 80% of the TARP money has been paid back by the banks . . . but the Incompetent In-Chief is using that money to finance Job Creation and Pork . . . govts don’t create real jobs . . . so it is not working . . .
    Do you think the Bamsters Trillions will ever get paid back???

    More on Mussolini . . . This is a considerable trip back in time and one effect of that is that the political terminology of nearly 100 years ago was somewhat different from today. In reading quotations from the early days one must keep in mind that those Mussolini refers to as “Socialists” were in fact Marxists rather than social democrats and those whom Mussolini refers to as “liberals” were advocates of laissez faire and would hence be described as conservatives today. Mussolini started out as a Marxist but eventually devised Fascism as a “third way” (sound familiar?). He saw it as offering a middle way between Marxism and capitalism — Leftist but not Marxist.

    In Mussolini’s own words . . . Let us listen initially to some reflections on the early days of Fascism by Mussolini himself — first published in 1935 (See the third chapter in Greene, 1968).
    “If the bourgeoisie think they will find lightning conductors in us they are the more deceived; we must start work at once …. We want to accustom the working class to real and effectual leadership”.

    And that was Mussolini quoting his own words from the early Fascist days. So while Mussolini had by that time (in his 30s) come to reject the Marxist idea of a class-war, he still saw himself as anti-bourgeois and as a saviour and leader of the workers. What modern-day Leftist could not identify with that?
    “Therefore I desire that this assembly shall accept the revindication of national trades unionism”

    So he was a good union man like most Leftists today.
    “When the present regime breaks down, we must be ready at once to take its place”

    Again a great Leftist hope and aspiration.
    “Fascism has taken up an attitude of complete opposition to the doctrines of Liberalism, both in the political field and in the field of economics”.

    The “Liberalism” he refers to here would of course be called “Neo-liberalism” today — the politics of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. Mussolini opposed such politics and so do Leftists today.

    “The present method of political representation cannot suffice”.

    Modern-day Leftists too seem to seek influence outside the normal democratic channels — from strikes and demonstrations to often successful attempts to get the courts to make law.

    “Fascism now and always believes in holiness and in heroism; that is to say in actions influenced by no economic motive”

    He here also rejects the Communist emphasis on materialism. Leftism to this day is often seen as a religion and its agitators clearly often long to be seen as heroic and unmaterialistic.

    “Fascism repudiates the conception of “economic” happiness”

    Leftists today also tend to regard consumerism as gross.

    I’m going to just cut and paste this in:

    “President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008. President Obama would add another $1 trillion.
    President Bush began a string of expensive financial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.
    President Bush created a Medicare drug entitle ment that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new government health care fund.
    President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. President Obama would double it.
    President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already increased this spending by 20 percent.
    President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.

    President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016″

    Even with both wars, Bush was not increasing the deficit. in Fact in 2004 the budget was highest and then started to decrease through 2007, with 2007 being the lowest. The 2008 and 2009 budgets were voted on by a mostly Democratic congress and started increase significantly in 2008. In 2009 the Obama administration said they deficit would be $1.75 trillion while the CBO estimate is $1.85 trillion. As the estimates go through 2019 they steadily get more skewed with the Obama figures and the CBO figures with 2019 being the worst with CBO estimate of $1.2 trillion and Obama’s estimate of $800 billion.

  • Dale

    I have read something about that connection . . . but can’t remember details. Have to check into it . . .

  • Dale

    It seems inconceivable to modern minds that just a few differences between two similar ideologies — Marxism and Nazism — could have been sufficient cause for great enmity between those two ideologies. But the differences concerned were important to the people involved at the time. Marxism was class-based and Nazism was nationally based but otherwise they were very similar. That’s what people said and thought at the time and that explains what they did and how they did it.
    And by Hitler’s time, antisemitism in particular, as well as racism in general, already had a long history on the Left. August Bebel was the founder of Germany’s Social Democratic party (mainstream Leftists) and his best-known saying is that antisemitism is der Sozialismus des bloeden Mannes (usually translated as “the socialism of fools”) — which implicitly recognized the antisemitism then prevalent on the Left. And Lenin himself alluded to the same phenomenon in saying that “it is not the Jews who are the enemies of the working people” but “the capitalists of all countries.” For more on the socialist roots of antisemitism see Tyler Cowen’s detailed survey here

    Who said this? A representative of the 21st century U.S. Democratic party, maybe? “As things stand today, the trade unions in my opinion cannot be dispensed with. On the contrary, they are among the most important institutions of the nation’s economic life. Their significance lies not only in the social and political field, but even more in the general field of national politics. A people whose broad masses, through a sound trade-union movement, obtain the satisfaction of their living requirements and at the same time an education, will be tremendously strengthened in its power of resistance in the struggle for existence”.

  • Warrior

    Phil,

    Bush cut taxes and my federal obligation went down. Of course to offset this reduction, all state, local, property went up. Now how is increasing federal taxes going to help the middle class? Do you think we will receive a corresponding reduction at state, local and property and all the other regressive taxes heaped upon us?

    All government spending must be brought under control. It can only be accomplished by reducing entitlements, getting rid of unions within government and reducing salaries and benefits within the governments. Stop the porkulis spending as well. Fiscal constraint is the order of the day.

  • Meteorlady

    Before you rag the rich, In 2007, the top 1 percent of tax returns paid 40.4 percent of all federal individual income taxes and earned 22.8 percent of adjusted gross income. Both of those figures—share of income and share of taxes paid—are significantly higher than they were in 2004 when the top 1 percent earned 19 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) and paid 36.9 percent of federal individual income taxes.

    I’m not seeing where the Bush tax cuts benefited these people a lot.

  • eddie47d

    Mussolini knew nothing of Ronald Reagan or Margret Thatcher so your point was lost. You talk about the here and now so let’s look at what’s really going on,Dale. I have seen nothing in the last 40yrs. where the leftists in America ever endoesed Musolinni or even Adolph. Both were dispicable creatures in life. Why would the left fawn over any dictator who wants to kill them? Sorry to dissapoint you but no lessons learned from those sickos. Maybe you can compare Musollini to Nixon who who got unions to join his silent majority…which was to the right. Now if you want another American parallel which is closer to the facts look up the KKK or the American neo-Nazi party.Every state has members who are mostly underground,waiting for the big moment. It’s easy to find information on them,(I peeked). Oh,Yes;they still hate our govt. (no matter who is in office). They still hate blacks,Jews,Catholics,gays,mexicanAmericans,liberals;Gee,where do I end. What they say and do has nothing to do with any leftist talk but it sure does sound like alot of right wing talk. So maybe progressives have evolved over the years and your stuck in this mindless fear and smear of the right.

    Again not to blow my own horn but I am experts on World War Two, as well on the political rhetoric that started both World Wars, as well the Russian affair.

    So who do you think won WWII according to US school textbooks?

    Again there is no differance between Marxist and Nazi’s.
    You must first look at the fundamentals of both, strange how they are excatly the same.
    But then again you would have to do some reading.

    The points based on the base of each group;

    Nazi’s;
    Use the Unions to gain control,of the military and Government
    Use the strife of the people to gain control
    Use class warfare to gain control
    Use a single group of people to blame for all problems.
    Use reeducation of the YOUTH to keep control.
    Use A snappy poster’s to gain support
    Use Iconography to gain support
    Use free food and beer to gain support
    Use hate to gain control
    Use fear to gain contol
    Use the pride of the people, as in power to the people.

    Marxist,
    Use unions to gain control of the military and Government.
    Use the strife of the people to gain control
    Use class warfare to gain control
    Use a single group of people to blame problems on
    Use snappy posters to gain control
    Use Iconography to gain control
    Use Free food and beer to gain control
    Use Hate to gain control
    Use Fear to gain control
    Use the pride of the people, as in power to the people.

    The end result, the two class system, the Ruling class and Slave class. Had the Nazi’s won the war Germans would have been the ruling class and everyone else the SLAVE class. Russia, the same deal.

    The Great American Ripoff of 1913. History goes much farther 1,000′s yrs ago for event planning. The Rothchilds family Owns 95 percent of the worlds wealth- 12 banks includes also cabal groups -fed reserve and corporations sucked into their evil luciferan claws. They care not for humanity. Our entire Govt also is sucked in. Out of fear due to their own closet skeletons,loss of jobs they are threatened if they dare expose anything.Kennedy was killed for issuing $20 silvernotes. over 20people who knew too much were killed. Many have been killed who exposed or would expose in all areas of Govt misdeeds. Israel says they own us as well. The luciferans are ongoing with their plans for NWO control over all which is on fast track and a reality. We have had true good investigative journalists, other people who attempt to give us much history behind the scenes leading to the world’s present dilemma. Can 350 Americans hire true constitutional attys, Judges and other experts to arrest, sue whatever to get rid of all and get our money back?? As per congressional record The US Govt can buy back the Fed anytime for $450 million. But Congress has to Act if this is the only solution. Otherwise if they refuse – Reality is that the economy won’t get better. God wins in the end for others- to Hotel Hell. I’m sure many would wish better for total Liberty down the road and they try hard to make things happen the right way. I realize many do not have the oppty to research all history and people involved that led up to present events. Of course the media, propaganda etc are shushed up as well. People who care about good govt etc are not dissidents by any means. Know a tree by it’s fruits. Good wisdom takes time. I may end this with The School of Life never ends and do according to the Universal 10 commandments which gives peace of heart.

  • DDC

    Time Phil thinks when he graduated pre-school that he didn’t have to return. So you might say he is a little illiterate, in other words dumb

  • Claire

    Time—I read your post twice. It appears to me that the Repubs and Dems have used bits and pieces from your list. This was my first impression. It certainly makes one think about what is going on within politics.

  • Time

    Claire and DCC, I forgot to add this tid bit that also shows just how the Nazi’s and Marxist have an even closer relationship, but I was waiting on Phil to dazzle us with his brilliance, yet again.

    Nazis
    Used The Gestapo = secret police,
    Used children to spy adults who did not go along with the Nazi’s.
    Used Mass murder to gain control Est, 40+ million.
    Used Mass comunications to get out the message
    Used Mind control to gain power

    Marxist
    Used KGB = secret police
    Used children to spy on adults who did not go along with Marxist
    Used Mass MURDER to gain control Rus, 75 + Million, China, 85 + Million Cuba 2 million that are known of.
    Used Mass comunications to get out message
    Used Mind control to gain power

    And last but not least, the nazis and marxist signed an agreement to fight together. But when you have two that want the same thing one has to be on top, thus we have the last fight.

    Oh, Phil it may be very clear to folks older than 50 who won World War 2, but in school textbooks its a bit more twisted, it states that the “UNITED NATIONS” won World War II.

    Thats why your kids are so dumb, its also why they don’t know who George Washington is, nor countless other basic things that they should know.
    Its also why the average IQ as of 2009 is 99.55, its going downward not up.
    Its also why 63% of high school grade kids can’t read basic 3th grade text.
    And why 22% can’t read at a level above 7th grade text.
    So that equals just about 15% that can read at high school level and or basic college level.
    Its also why comprehension levels have dropped to below 6th grade levels in nearly 85% of all children who graduate high school.

    Its sad but true many of our Youth are being dumbed down to levels that place us in lower than third world status.

    Obamaer thinks a tea party is a place to go and shoot skeet,and have tea with the queen. So he can pat her on the butt the next time

  • DDC

    OH MY GOSH what bathroom wall did you get that off of

  • Meteorlady

    I think that children get their education about political views from their parents. Administrators and Teachers are most certainly liberal bent and have been for years. Research the University of Chicago if you want to see a real hot bed of communism. They have been that way for over 35 years and continue to get our tax dollars to run their “university of socialism”.

    JeffH, Hate is an emotion that the repubs generate using fear mongering. Using John Birch Society talking points is turning Americans against Americans. You must be so proud that you hate your fellow citizens, because they have a different view point. Wonder how you would feel if all of us who did serve in the War, hated all of you who didn’t? Wouldn’t matter why you couldn’t or didn’t serve, just the fact that you didn’t serve, would qualify you for our hate and discust. That would be just as stupid as hating someone for their viewpoint. We are all Americans who should work together to solve our problems, not degrade and call each other names. After about 25years of age, you should be able to communicate without name calling and personally attacking someone who disagrees with you.

    Dale,

    Maybe more BO Czars!!!

  • Blue

    Dale,

    Just the facts mam, just the facts. Joe Friday I believe.

  • Claire

    Blue—I disagree with you. It appears to me that so-called “journalists” are either right wing or left wing. There are NOT all biased to the left. My comment also applies to radio talk show hosts, and the TV channels.

  • Barb

    Dear Eyeswideopen??,
    I read the entire blog before I went back to talk to Norm. I was referring to his reference to Glen Beck in another rather boorish statement of his. I was conserving space by commenting on both at the same time. You’ll have to forgive me that’s the conservative in me! By the way it tickles me how much you libs fear guys like Glen Beck!!!

  • Time

    Claire,
    He is 100% right, about 300 billion dollars went to China to make these wind mills. The Chinese have the most of a hard to find item called RARE EARTH that is used in the manufacturing of these Wind mills.

  • Time

    Eyes WIDE open.
    Then perhaps you should stop with your “hate mongering” that you post time after time in ALL your post.

    Oh I forgot; “if it weren’t for double standards you wouldn’t have any standards at all.”

  • DDC

    Time, that is the best comment of the day. Its alright for eyes to show HATE, but I don’t see how she gets her double standard.Everything she comments on is Hatred.

  • libertytrain

    Claire, if my body still functions then, I will be doing a very happy dance. Just to get “our lives” back, the house back (it’s not geared for more than just the two of us) – While I will miss the kids, there’s a lot I won’t miss – as you can probably imagine. And I will be very glad when both the parents are back “in country” rather than “down range” – that’s the extent of my military lingo.

  • Claire

    libertytrain—I know exactly what you mean!! You have the toddlers and I have the dogs. Somehow the body has to keep functioning! Bless your heart!

  • eddie47d

    Joe H.;Your tweaking, I think your the one sucking on the tailpipe. The gases used against the Kurds came from Europe and America (Ronald Reagan). The same gases that killed thousands in the Iraq-Iran War. You never give up in defending our abuses in the world. Must be a right wing sickness,no matter how much damage it does to Americas credibility. All the good the USA does is flushed down the toliet with your defense of these crimes.

    Eddie, Reagan gave Sadam nerve gas? Tell me the reliable source you got that from, I want to look it up, too.

  • Joe H.

    eddie47duh,
    I’M TWEAKING???? If you would show me just one SHRED of PROOF of your rediculous statement, you would have some type of appendage to stand on!!!! I know, it’s that plot syndrome, right? Can’t trust the US government when it comes to foreign entanglements,RIGHT??? Grow up kid!!!!

  • Claire

    Time–Oh, this is just great. Just when I think things are going to “break” for the best then something always intervenes. I never saw anything like it. Well, so much for that. Surelu to the good Lord something good will happen and soon. I keep hoping—Oh, we hired 3 people at my office today. I was so happy. Talk about being worked to death. My brain is about shot when I get home. I’m surprised I can even think sometimes!

  • Claire

    “surely” – my fingers are going faster than my brain or vice versa! sorry.

  • Claire

    As a former Liberal, I was never afraid of Beck. In fact, I thought he could be rather stupid at times. I can’t handle the goofiness, the crying jags. When a person speaks the truth they should be sincere and exude the sincerity. For some reason, he did not exude sincerity to me, back then and not now.

  • Claire

    And furthermore, I am to the point I would rather read the blogs on this site from the people that post. I will seek the truth for myself. I do not have to listen to the paid entertainers on radio or TV.

  • eyeswideopen

    Claire, hands clapping. I feel the same about all those “entertainers”, if you feel you don’t have to speak using facts, why should anyone listen?

  • Joe H.

    hey,
    If Philly brand smoked as much as you told him to he’d be one torqued
    sumbit.h!!!!! Now that I give it a second thought…………

  • Joe H.

    PASSED Dummy!!!

  • Meteorlady

    Sorry – the above was for Eyes…..

  • Fed Up Gal in Nm

    Meteorlady,

    You are so right!

    Fed Up Gal

  • eyeswideopen

    Meteorlady, you should have enough faith in the parents teaching their children that it should matter if they are exposed to a different point of view. To sheild your child from different viewpoints means they won’t be able to cope with or defend their own position. Knowledge and exposure to different things, allows them to be able to use their brain when something isn’t the same. http://www.livingston.net/wilkyjr/ling30.htm
    Your fears are being exploited by the fear mongers.

  • eyeswideopen

    Meteorlady, sweetie, when someone makes a stupid biased opinion, I will research it. I then will state rebuttal, or link, and take their statement, restate it, showing how silly it really is. You cannot let people make generalized off the kuff statements which are incorrect, that’s exactly what the so called “Journalists” are doing, they are not correcting the mis-statements, and lies being broadcast, so the people are not receiving correct information. All I do is read what is posted, if it sounds radical, I just research it and then feed back the info. Problem is none of you like it, when you are corrected. I like to know the truth, I have admitted many times when I am wrong. There is no sin, in being wrong.
