That’s right. According to the latest polling conducted by the Pew Research Center, only 19% of Americans trust the government. That’s the lowest number ever recorded. And get this. The public is split over whether the government should be responsible for dealing with critical problems.
What the hell does this mean?
For one, the Tea Klux Klan and the rest of Dick Armey’s Astroturf revolution is winning. Big time. For another, transparency might not be such a good thing after all. The public is sick and tired of the filth, corruption, and over-the-top vitriol coming out of Washington. Also, a lot of folks are angry the Obama Administration hasn’t cleaned up Bush’s mess fast enough.
Midterm elections always favor the party out of power, in this case that’s the Party of No. Even though their policies wrecked the country in the first place, the GOP is set to win big in November.
I’ve said it before; it’s no longer about right and wrong, it’s all about winning and losing.
