Every word of this. The People are, thank god, not as stupid or complacent as I had thought. They’re right on the money here. Of course, the reason government is still in power is that they have successfully leveraged each of us against the others. We are all dissatisfied but we are all convinced it’s because of different things. We must hang together, as the man said, or we shall assuredly be hanged separately.
Gallup released a new poll late last week showing how many (or few, as it were) Americans are ‘satisfied’ with the direction of the country. 23%. That’s it. 76% are NOT satisfied. Only 1% aren’t sure.
The chart below shows the astounding, long-term decline since 2000.
Note, this is a trend that has outlasted three Presidents and six Congresses. It’s not about a single politician, or even ALL the politicians. It’s about the system itself.
Bottom line, people are fed up. The system has failed. And people are starting to realize it. Where do you think this goes?
