“63% of the Political Class think the government has the consent of the governed, but only
six percent (6%) of those with Mainstream views agree.”
So will this government, with the loud support of our “Political Class,” arrange a(nother)
War To End All Wars, for the sake of mass compliance? Or is it just too broke?
p.s. We have to note that Rasmussen skews right–and also that Bill Kristol thinks this
study is right-on (although some eminent liberals do as well). No doubt such pundits like
to think, and hope to have the rest of us all thinking, that this crisis started sometime soon
after Election Day, 2008.
But this crisis has been worsened not by the election of Barack Obama, but by his subsequent
(and ongoing) betrayal of so many campaign promises.
Only 21% Say U.S. Government Has Consent of the Governed
By Rasmussen Reports
February 19, 2010 “Rasmussen Reports ” —- The founding document of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, states that governments derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Today, however, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that the federal government enjoys the consent of the governed.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% disagree and say the government does not have the necessary consent. Eighteen percent (18%) of voters are not sure.
