This Number Should Be Higher
Only 53 percent?
Americans have a very special message for the federal government: Don’t tread on me.
That’s the takeaway from a new poll from the Pew Research Center in which, for the first time in at least the last two decades, a majority of Americans say Washington actually poses a threat to their “personal rights and freedoms.”
Overall, the percentage of Americans who view the federal government as a threat has increased from 36 percent in May 1995 to 53 percent today.
At least the number’s trending in the right direction, and we’re now on the high side of fifty. Count your blessings where and when you can.
