Distrust of Big Government growing

Distrust of Big Government growing

The Obama administration and Obamacare has increased distructs of Big Government so much even a majority of Democrats view government as the greatest threat, via Gallup, Record High in U.S. Say Big Government Greatest Threat:

Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000….

The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.

Distructs is right. Destructive distrust.

Thank you for this post! It made my day. We need good news like this every so often during the reign of the Democrats. Now if we could only convince people of benefits of the Constitution, free markets, and personal charity (as opposed to the welfare state).

56% of dems distrust Big Gov with their party in charge? Beautiful.

This is a hopeful sign that all is not yet lost in this country.
