Quote:16 Statistics Which Prove That The American People Are Absolutely Seething With Anger

#1 A new Washington Post poll has found that a whopping 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied "with the way this country’s political system is working".

#2 That same poll found that only 26 percent of Americans believe that the federal government can solve the economic problems that we are now facing.

#3 Gallup says that Barack Obama's job approval rating has hit an all-time low of 39%.

#4 According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.

#5 A new Rasmussen survey has found that 85 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress "are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people."

#6 That same survey found that 46 percent of the American people believe that most members of Congress are corrupt. That figure was a new all-time high.

#7 According to a different Rasmussen survey, only 17 percent of Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.

#8 A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll discovered that 73 percent of the American people believe that the nation is "on the wrong track".

#9 A recent poll taken by Rasmussen found that 68 percent of Americans believe that we are actually in a recession right now.

#10 According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.

#11 U.S. consumer confidence is now at its lowest level in 30 years.

#12 According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that the economy is performing poorly.

#13 That same poll found that approximately 80 percent of Americans believe that it is "difficult" to find a job these days.

#14 According to one recent poll, 39 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. economy has now entered a "permanent decline".

#15 Another recent survey found that 48 percent of Americans believe that it is likely that another great Depression will begin within the next 12 months.

#16 According to a brand new Rasmussen survey, 48% of Americans believe that reductions in government spending are "at least somewhat likely" to result in civil unrest inside the United States.

So why doesn't the government step in and spend a whole bunch of money and make everything all better?

Well, the problem is that we have done this time after time before and now we are broke.

We have been living way, way beyond our means for decades and now the bills are coming due.......

When is this going to hit a critical mass?

Americans are getting a wakeup call regarding the press and their bias in the lack of coverage of Ron Paul's Iowa 2nd place showing with less than a one point spread. And unlike Bachmann he didn't even buy his votes.

From the video:

The guy certainly has a way with words, almost beyond the ability of mere mortals to comprehend in casual conversation. rofl.gif

From a link in the article
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...rstep.html

Quote:The Tent City of New Jersey: Desperate victims of the economic slump forced to live in makeshift homes in forest - In scenes reminiscent of the Great Depression these are the ramshackle homes of the desperate and destitute U.S. families who have set up their own 'Tent City' only an hour from Manhattan.

More than 50 homeless people have joined the community within New Jersey's forests as the economic crisis has wrecked their American dream...

Shameful and what was once possibly the "greatest country in the world". The hijacking is complete.

They used to be called communes.


They need to clear some land for a communal garden.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Hehe, I said that might very well be the best thing that ever happened to them. These could be the new self sustained communities and I'm pretty certain we'll see a lot more of them everywhere.

Quote:From the article 'The camp is currently involved in a legal battle with local Ocean County authorities which wants to remove the camp and the case has gone all the way to New Jersey Superior Court.

No doubt who is going to win that fight. Its a battle between the growing homeless and the state. I've posted here before, video of police in Florida, cutting up people's homes/tents. This tent town is reminiscent of the Hooverville encampments of the thirties. As JR wrote - Shameful.
