More polling shows Americans distrustful of government

The average person in the world is at least 4 times more likely to be killed by his own government than by any foreign government, any criminal, or any terrorist.

Statistically, one’s own government is always the greatest source of potential danger to one’s life. For years, Gallup has been asking the question: “Do you think the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens?” For almost 10 years, 40 percent or more of Americans have responded “yes.” Now, in 2015, 49 percent, ALMOST A MAJORITY, wisely state that the U.S. government is an immediate threat. See here.

Gallup polling from the past month has also shown that 75 percent of Americans view their government as corrupt, see here, and half of Americans say the government regulates business too much, see here.

(Interestingly, only 21 percent say government regulates business too little. Claims by pro-government “campaign-finance reform” advocates that “the rich” are promoting deregulation against the wishes and sensibilities of the public are demonstrably untrue. The public WANT MORE DEREGULATION, as shown by consistent polling.)
