from The Daily Bell:
Major survey finds record low confidence in government … Americans’ confidence in all three branches of government is at or near record lows, according to a major survey that has measured attitudes on the subject for 40 years. The 2014 General Social Survey finds only 23 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the Supreme Court, 11 percent in the executive branch and 5 percent in Congress. By contrast, half have a great deal of confidence in the military. – AP
Dominant Social Theme: Government is good. Just lie back and let it happen.
Free-Market Analysis: Those who believe in social salvation by government cannot be pleased with these polls. Maybe that’s why they are polling the same issue over and over. It seems something like a compulsion. Ask enough times and maybe you’ll get the right answer. Only, no … sorry, you won’t. After six years of grinding “greater recession” throughout the West, citizens are fed up. And that is certainly true in the US.
