Half of Americans Think “Government Is an Immediate Threat to Liberty”

When Governments Go Rogue

Government poses a threat to liberty, that much is clear.

But what may be surprising is that almost half of Americans clearly identified government as a clear and “immediate” threat, and are obviously outraged about what is going on.

Oddly, the number of angry Americans has remained consistent in poll number ever since about 2006 during George W. Bush’s second term, maintaining around 46-49% throughout Barack Obama’s entire presidency.

And yet, things continue to get worse and worse with each political cycle, and each new president.

Gallup reported that:

Almost half of Americans, 49%, say the federal government poses “an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens,” similar to what was found in previous surveys conducted over the last five years.

The remarkable finding about these attitudes is how much they reflect apparent antipathy toward the party controlling the White House, rather than being a purely fundamental or fixed philosophical attitude about government.

[…] during the Republican administration of George W. Bush, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents were consistently more likely than Republicans and Republican-leaning independents to say the federal government posed an immediate threat.

[…] during the Democratic Obama administration, the partisan gap flipped, with Republicans significantly more likely to agree.


Still, the persistent finding in recent years that half of the population views the government as an immediate threat underscores the degree to which the role and power of government remains a key issue of our time… numerous other measures show that the people give their government some of the lowest approval and trust ratings in the measures’ history.

So why does the situation between the people and government continue to deteriorate?

The complaints about government’s abuse of powers reaches across the isle, and straddles both parties in the White House, yet people tend to direct their anger only at the current president – thus falling for the ruse of blaming the puppet, and not the system.

As Americans shift blame about the state of affairs back-and-forth with every election, most miss the point about why these things are happening – someone is writing reports and creating policies that allow these things to happen. All the Congress and President do is approve them, and deflect attention towards who is running the show.

What are Americans upset about, according to polls?:

Overall, Americans who agree that the government is an immediate threat tend to respond with very general complaints echoing the theme that the federal government is too big and too powerful, and that it has too many laws. They also cite nonspecific allegations that the government violates freedoms and civil liberties, and that there is too much government in people’s private lives.


perceptions that the government is “socialist,” that the government spends too much, that it picks winners and losers such as the wealthy or racial and ethnic minorities, that it is too involved in things it shouldn’t be and that it violates the separation of powers.

[as well as…]

freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the overuse of police and law enforcement, government surveillance of private citizens including emails and phone records, government involvement in gay marriage issues, overregulation of business, overtaxing, the healthcare law and immigration.

The vast majority of these issues happen under the mis-leadership of both parties, progressing without fail through the years.

It is time that Americans embrace their anger at government, and focus their attention past the politicians to the real problem.

Start with the bankers, follow the money, and see where it goes…

    It’s not that people are against Government, we are against evil, corrupt Government.

  2. We have a Zionist Muslim biracial might be Christian multicultural puppet president in the Big House. The Zionist Corporate trillioaires and billionaires who tell him what to do. The Rothschilds who tell the billionaire corporate big shots what to do. And the shit runs down to the rest of us poor slobs who have no say and you want to know what is on our mind. What the hell difference does it make what is on our mind. Nobody gives a shit what we think. They know we know what is up which is why half of us are fed up and the other half are smoking crack.

    • Sgt. Dale says:

      Boy you nailed it right on the head!!!! You wrote it out 100 times better than I could have.

    • WhoKnowsAnymore says:

      B from CA. I been saying that for a few years now, but lately my posts get deleted when I do say that. So Fn ditto. The Govnt is also run by over zealous psychopaths in position make make life hell for ordinary Americans. Caught with a baggy of Pot 5 yrs in Prison. Steal Billions by bankers, they pay a small fine which is paid by stockholders, and they are back on to their next scam..

    • TheGuy says:

      Help help it’s all so unfair, somebody DO SOMETHING (average citizen)

      – Ok! We’ll do something. Hey what’s your favorite color? (Government)


      (to infinity and beyond – average citizens)

      There’s your problem right there. Try to get any FIVE people to agree on ANYTHING. Now… multiply that problem by 60,000,000.

      Hence why you gotta stay out of it past a certain minimal point.

  3. Stan522 says:

    That’s because THEY ARE!!!

    And we are all passively sitting by letting it happen……

  4. WilliamOtriad says:

    Everyone knows what is going on its no secret it’s just a game of waiting till they move their queen. Obama and the pope meeting not good. The pope is meeting with congress?? Since when do we care about Francis? Something is gonna happen this week if not today.

    Clean your carbines boys

  5. Jack Hammer says:

    Prepare for the upcoming 2nd American Revolution….soon.

    • Green Tip 4 U says:

      What I don’t get is why is there not significantly more talk of revolution? If half of Americans see the goverment as a threat and the vast majority of us are in some way shape or form pissed off at the goverment, why hasn’t a group other than the Oathkeepers come out to openly challenge them? Shit all it took in the first revolution was 3% of us and it got the job done. Imagine if 3% of the American population marched on D.C. armed simply with our rifles and handguns.

      • rellik says:

        Why march on DC?
        Shoot your congress critters at
        a local “meet”.
        There are thousands of better shooters
        than me that could use a Barret light 50
        to take down “Dear leader” and
        foot in the mouth
        But it would not change a thing.
        Our problem is Democrats.
        That is what we need to eliminate.

  6. Enemy of the State says:

    Well when you have shit like this running for the Presidency , and the shit head we have already at the helm ..WTF do we expect ?

    “Where is the Goddamn flag? I want the Goddamn f*cking flag up every morning

    at f*cking sunrise”.

    From the book “Inside the White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 244 Hillary to

    staff at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion on Labor Day 1991.

    “F*ck off! It’s enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day! I’m not going to

    talk to you too!! Just do your Godamn job and keep your mouth shut.”

    From the book “America Evita” by Christopher Anderson, p.90; Hillary to her

    State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning.”

    “If you want to remain on this detail, get your f*cking ass over here and grab

    those bags!”

    From the book “The First Partner” p. 259; Hillary to a Secret Service Agent

    who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands

    free in case of an incident.


    “Stay the fuck back, stay the f*ck back away from me! Don’t come within ten

    yards of me, or else! Just f*cking do as I say, Okay!?”

    From the book “Unlimited Access” by Clinton’s FBI Agent-in-Charge, by Gary

    Aldridge, p.139; Hillary is screaming at her Secret Service detail.


    “Where’s the miserable c*ck sucker?” (otherwise known as “Bill Clinton”)

    From the book “The Truth about Hillary” by Edward Klein, p.5; Hillary

    shouting at a Secret Service officer.


    You f*cking idiot”

    From the book “Crossfire” ~pg. 84; Hillary to a State Trooper who was

    driving her to an event.


    “Put this on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need those

    f*cking sunglasses! We need to go back!

    From the book ” Dereliction of Duty” p. 71-72; Hillary to Marine One

    helicopter pilot to turn back while enroute to Air Force One.


    “Come on Bill, put your dick up! You can’t f*ck her here!”

    From the book “Inside the White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 243; Hillary

    to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female

    This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful and abusive woman wants to

    be your next President, and have total control as Commander and Chief of

    our Military, the very Military for which she has shown incredible disdain

    throughout her public life…….

    Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi :

    “What difference at this point does it make?”

    Remember what class Laura and George W. Bush brought to the White House

    and how they treated the Secret Service detail and the military. They even spent

    some Christmas holidays at Camp David instead of the Texas ranch so the Secret

    Service detail could spend the holidays with their families.

    Now it is clear why the crew of ‘Marine One’ helicopter nick-named the craft,

    ‘Broomstick One’

  7. Enemy of the State says:

    Capitol Police are investigating a man identifying himself as an “Oathkeeper” and an “American Patriot who has everything to lose” who has threatened to arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason because of her support for the Iran nuclear deal.
    Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona resident who reportedly attracted FBI attention when he organized an anti-Muslim protest rally and “draw Muhammad” cartoon contest at a Phoenix mosque, shared his plan to organize with fellow U.S. Marines in an open letter posted online Monday.
    “We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” states the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”
    . . . Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.

    • grandee says:

      Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution:

      Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open court.

      The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

      (Definition of ATTAINDER extinction of the civil rights and capacities of a person upon sentence of death or outlawry usually after a conviction of treason)

  8. Jim in Va. says:

    Even though i love my country and flag I’m sure I’m on quite a few “lists” like everyone on here is. I’m afraid of my government and where its going. They should be very afraid of the citizens of this country. There is a simmering boil going on and its ready to boil over. Apparently working,paying taxes and abiding by all laws isn’t enough. I can’t give the government anymore because I don’t have anymore to give.

  9. swinging richard says:

    Jim, I have to agree. It is a shame what our government has morphed into. I heard Hillary speak on the refugee crisis the other day. Stated that we needed to send financial aid to assist other countries. My first thought was to make that a goal of the Clinton Foundation. See how she likes it when her giving effects her lifestyle.

  10. Sgt. Dale says:

    Only 1/2 of the people in the USA???????

    Thank God the rest of us are awake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The day is fast approaching when TSWHTF. I just hope and pray that when it does I’m at home and ready, and able to do something about it. I also pray to that my fellow Preppers are ready also.


    Off Topic:
    Talked to the German teacher at the High School where my wife works last night. He has family in Germany and they are telling him that the MSM is not showing the real SHIT that is going down in Germany. He told me that it is getting to the point where the Muslime’s are going to home and throwing people out of their houses and living in them for weeks then moving on. I was told that some people have been sent to the hospital or even killed when the homes are invaded. Car theft. It nothing to have 25 to 50 cars stolen a day.

    For the good news the German People are about to have a Revolution and throw Merkel out. He told me that it has gone as far as some of the German people forming armed Militias. I was told that the Police are joining the Militia’s in large numbers.

    Sept 13 came and went with a big ZERO

    today Sept 23 some sort of catastrophe is supposed to strike

    and now Sept 28 is another day being held up

    well if something does happen today
    it’s been nice knowin’ youse guys !!!

    • Kulafarmer says:

      See ya tomorrow Satori,

      • Nopittypartyhere says:

        Satori, the shemitah marks an end of sorts. Many of the largest declines in the markets started around the time of the shemitah, sometimes on that very day, sometimes not, but many times this decline took weeks to months to manifest. Check out zero hedge. We are teetering, and all this looks so similar to what happened in 2008. Markets up down up down down more than up then oops were at Dow 7000. The number of times a serious correction has occurred on shemitah Elul 29 defies odds. Not saying it’s right or wrong, just make you go hmmmm.

  12. I guess you have to break down the borders and confuse the identity of each nation after you bankrupt them to usher in a new one world government, or at least large regional centrally controlled governments.

    • Ghenghis is here says:

      Ole Ghenghis is moving, this time without horses and bows. ISIS isn’t dressed in military attire, but they’ve got weapons.

      bommie is bringing in 250,000 of his fellow muslims.

  13. Dave says:

    imo; Trust in the Government started to erode after Kennedy was murdered; and it hasn’t slowed down since. The ONLY way your going to have an honest man or woman in the WH; is to kick out the special interest influence and deep pocketed money out of politics altogether; and THAT will NEVER happen. The cancer on the Republic just runs too deep.

    • sixpack says:

      Agreed. As long as it is possible to get his brains blown out, NO PRESIDENT will ever go against his handlers for very long. They keep murdering a politician every once in a while, just to remind us all that they can.

      THAT IS THE PROBLEM WE NEED TO FIX, before we will EVER get an honest president.

  14. I just watched video#1 on SQ’s web site. Its Larry Klayman talking to Alex Jones. Its very telling of the criminal crowd thats taken over our gov’t. Your imagination will tell you whats coming next. As SGT. Dale says, aim small, miss small.

  15. The Prophet says:

    And the other half has cable sports channels. They can recite every players batting average but can’t tell you who the Vice President is.

  16. slingshot says:


    Should I invest in body armor, bullets or a life preserver vest? What to do, what to do.

  17. The Prophet says:

    Body armor is nice, but not entirely “bullet proof”. Gets somewhat expensive at the top end. Also can be a bit cumbersome but better than a gaping hole and exit wound.

  18. Here is a scary thought. They just announced that 5.6M fingerprints were stolen during the OPM hack, but not to worry. They don’t think there is anything that they currently could do with the prints. I imagine that someone with a good 3D printer and a little knowledge could come up with a way to make slip on finger tips that contained some else’s prints and start selling them on the black market along with the other data.

    HCKS is spewing some hilarious shit in that alien snow den article. Very bottom. I think he’s either off his meds or he’s really loosing it this time

    • Nopittypartyhere says:

      There is something seriously wrong with that character. His posts exhibit traits consistent with paranoid schizophrenia. No way in hell does hcks need to have a gun imho. See something say something, somebody say something!

  21. got out then says:

    America has forgotten.

    We forgot that the people, not the government had the power.

    We forgot that our elected officials are not royalty.

    We forgot that we should not be fearful of our government rather they should be fearful of us.

    We forgot that we have a constitution.

    We forgot that there are three branches of government with checks and balances.

    We forgot that millions of Americans fought and died for the freedoms that are being taken away from you everyday.

    I didn’t and I am not alone. We have been quiet, hopeful and forgiving. Waiting and hoping that someone will arise and lead this country back from the brink of pure hell. I am afraid that it has all gone on for too long, that the economy died and has been on life support for the past 7 years. That war has already started and wont stop until billions die. That the freedoms we gave away we will never get back. Yet I am still hopeful, watchful, praying and preparing.

  22. Ketchupondemand says:

    well,whaddya know, it wasn’t deleted.

  23. FredB says:

    Big deal. Poll,s surveys, blah blah blah… until the American masses finally decide to grow a pair and do something about the corruption nothing will change. The powers that be are not stupid and they play the masses like a violin… distract, divide and watch the idiots hammer away at their keyboards telling the world they hate what their country has become but they know that NOTHING will ever be done about any of it because people have gone from doing to just talking about doing.
    I’ve tried to arrange protests and demonstrations, in the past, and people’s interest is high until they find out they might actually have to do something like hand out literature d or show up and protest then all you hear are excuses as to why they can’t do anymore.
    We have slowly handed our power over to these people by becoming compliant, allowing ourselves to be dumbed down by media and becoming to self-involved to even consider what’s really going on. I have no doubt that more Americans are interested in their favorite reality show than what’s really going on in the world. We have the right and the power to TAKE our countries back we just need to find the balls and the resolve to actually do it.
    It could be 100 percent and I bet you nothing would be done about it.

    I know I have singled out Americans but I see no way around it as it’s the States and their policies that are at the root of most of the big issues, and to be honest…evil, facing us at this time in history.

  24. aljamo says:

    The people are powerless against WMD’s. Those are TPTB weapons of choice and they will use them on any attempt to remove their control. Everybody with a brain knows it, so they just wait in their instilled fear of helplessness.

  25. Ron Ahrens says:

    When you live in a Stasi fascist Police Statec controlled by psychopathic criminal monsters, true liberty is only a dream. The fantasies and lies from the propaganda spewing mainstream media telling all the coward zombies how free they are, and the fact that a majority of the coward zombies believe those fantasies and lies, it only makes true liberty a fantasy for future generations. Sorry children of collapsing America, the coward zombies controlling your future refuse to wake up to the Matrix of fantasies and lies, and therefore you will never know true liberty in your future as chemically altered dumbed down brain dead Epsilon slaves to the Corporatist fascists NWO monsters.

  26. Ben Raines says:

    The other 50% either work for the government or are supported by it’s freebies.

  27. aljamo says:

    I read on a site that Fidel Castro became a cia agent in 1948 and has been a U.S. agent since that time. The whole Bay of Pigs fiasco was a psyop to build the defense budget creating Russia as the enemy of America. The KGB stated Castro never joined the Cuban communist party, nor any communist front organizations. He was not a crypto-communist nor was he ever recruited by the Soviet intelligence services. Castro is also a homosexual and is a billionaire. The people of the island he ruled over live in total poverty. This article also stated he was involved in the death of Venezuela’s Cesar Chavez. Other notable cia assets were Noriega, Nassar and Ayatollah Khomeini.

  28. USMC1982 says:

    As a USMC sniper, I fear for the troops that come into residential areas with “orders to collect stuff” They are trying to purge all of the good ones out of the military so …..

    Lets see the last time I checked we have 40
    million retired or inactive military, old school and everyone I know is armed to the teeth,,,

    They should be scared,

  29. Asshat says:

    people demand they be lied to and the people who don’t believe the lies and tell the truth to others are demonized by the brain dead zombie masses. We’re done put a fork in us.

  30. Fred Rodgers says:

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an obama presidency than to restore the nessacery common sense and good judgement to a deprived electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to rhe vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama , who is , after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
