Chart 1: Confidence in the US congress per Gallup surveys. The downward trend is clear.
Chart 2: Same data for confidence in US congress but plotted on an inverse scale so we see an increasing line.
Chart 3: Official US consumer price index. This is the official, but clearly understated, increase in prices since 1973.
Chart 4: Official US national debt plotted on a log scale so an up-trending straight line indicates an exponential increase – averages more than 9% per year.
