[quote:Anonymous Coward 7570540:MV8yMTI5NjYzXzM1OTcxNTE4X0VFNjg2MTkz] I don't have time to read/watch everything in this thread this a.m. before work. However, from the title, 22% is a much higher number than I would have thought. 22% of Americans think the government operates with our consent? In other words, almost a quarter of the people still believe the government has not gone haywire and off-track and operates with honesty and integrity. Hmmmm - the dumbest of the dumb - the Obama's gonna take care of me crowd. [/quote]
Considering at least 22% of the people in this country work for the Government and 40 percent of the GDP is government spending, this is absolutely shocking, you might as well say that this government through a vote of no confidence is now ruling by outright fraud and brute force against it's subjects. We are no longer free!

Add this to another recent poll in which only 22% of likely voters feel America's government has the "consent of the governed," and you've got a pretty depressing picture -- and
a recipe for potential trouble
