New Gallup Poll — “Number 1 Problem Facing Americans Today” is the U.S. Government

govt-the-problemBy Matt Agorist

Healthcare, economy, unemployment, immigration, and terrorism are mere sideline issues among most Americans, according to a recent Gallup poll. The number one problem in America today–is America–or, at least, the government which represents it.

In 2015, for the second straight year, the largest problem Americans have faced is the United States Government.

Over the past two years, Americans have watched the federal government help to create and fund ISIS in Syria, completely trash the privacy of its citizens, beat, kidnap, cage, and kill people for a plant, and continue to bury generations of unborn children and their grandchildren under an infinitely massive mountain of debt to pay for it all.

According to the poll, Americans think the Government is the largest problem at 16%, followed by the Economy at 13%, and then Unemployment and Immigration, which are tied at 8%.

Ironically, all of the top issues Americans claim to face, happen to be controlled or at least heavily influenced by government. The word “immigration” would not even exist if not for the imaginary lines drawn on a map by governments. It would simply be referred to as “moving.”

According to Gallup, there was less consensus in 2015 on any single problem as the nation’s biggest, largely because Americans’ concern about the economy and unemployment subsided, while no other issue replaced them.

It seems that the government-created problems are becoming so numerous that it’s hard to nail down just one–which is likely why the number one problem is simply “government.”

This might be the best insurance against economic collapse (Ad)

As seen below, in the Gallup’s annual averages since 2001, there always tends to be a single polarizing issue–until now.

Gallup2This Gallup poll tends to corroborate another recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center that found more than one-quarter of all registered voters say they think of government as the enemy.

In the Pew poll, their findings suggested that 57 percent of voters feel frustrated with the government while 22% feel angry, and 18% feel “basically content.”

The Pew poll also found that the majority, around 3 in 4 Americans, actually figured out that the federal government is “run by a few big interests,” while nearly two-thirds say the “government is almost always wasteful and inefficient.”

Government atrocities that have previously only affected a small number of people have now become so commonplace that they are considered the norm.

It is no longer conspiracy theory to find out that the government is spying on innocent civilians through many different means. Also, it is now well known that the government is not afraid of killing civilians who get in its way, not excluding bombing innocent doctors inside hospitals. 

As more and more people feel the wrath of their almighty state, the 18% will become 30%, the 30% will become 60%, and so on until the paradigm of politicians feeding off of the citizens is finally brought to a halt.

To end this police state, we have to educate our fellow Americans about its immoral nature. Only through a lesser ignorance will Americans wake up to the atrocities being carried out against them by their supposed protectors.

The Free Thought Project has a running list of articles that pose solutions to the myriad of problems that arise when criminals run the show. Please take a look through our #Solutions section to find out more, and share this article with your friends and family to help open their eyes to the immoral nature of the police state.

    John 9:
    1. And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
    2. And the disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
    3. And Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
    “There are two manner of evils from which man may suffer. One is the result of his own, or his “father’s” sinning, the operation of Karmic Law; the other is the result of the evils committed by others, but from which the innocent suffer.
    One, the first, creates an indebtedness which must be paid. The other is credited to them for which the Divine Law will compensate them in due time.
    When unavoidable and unexpected evil befalls one, it should be accepted without grumbling, but the cause sought in order to avoid a like occurrence in the future. If it is found to have been caused by one’s own acts, amends should be made. The Law will always be fulfilled; payment is exacted from the guilty; the innocent compensated for loss or suffering not the result of their own acts. Feelings of resentment, bitterness or hatred will delay the fulfilling of the Law.”

    Like any disease which invades the body and consumes resources with no return the Government has become a cancer.

    Americans are America’s number 1 problem. Government is just the tool that catches all the flack. What we are witnessing in these days are the consequences of building a nation with so many errors, from the dealings with native Americans, to the black slaves and the whole 3/5 a person thing, the Chinese Americans, Japanese americans, etc.. Also lets not forget the imperial conquest the government began once they had abused those peoples for its infrastructure.

    The American empire can no longer stand under the sins it brought upon itself. Communities are rife with distrust, and violence. The money is just a tattered promise with no intent to be fufilled. The political environment is that of men who would prefer its citizenry dead than to revert to limited powers. I still don’t believe that the possibility of better is lost, but it will not come from an American empire. Neither will it come from any empire that has benefitted from America’s existence.

    The people have to start anew, they have to enlighten themselves, and cast off this system. Once that happens progress can be made. It can not be violent in nature when they exodus or else they will just end up in similar position, imprisoned by a government. Unfortunately, Americans love the fruits of their corrupt government. It is because of this love for those rotten fruits that they have become sickly.

    Every politician’s problem is that there is nothing that can be done constructive for our country that is not destructive of government. I keep hoping for some one who will introduce a bill to defund geo-engineering/climate-engineering; institute a flat tax or some ratio of flat tax and national sales tax; disolve the Department of Agriculture, disolve the Department of Education; etc.; Nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank. Do you suppose that anyone in the Senate or House of Representatives has any vision of a truly constitutional government? The key question for all candidates is how much government can you shut down and how many congressional benefits can you remove? Another good question: Do you believe debt calls for austerity?

Thank you for sharing.
