According to a new Gallup poll, 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with government. We’re not talking about dissatisfaction with Obama or Congress specifically, but with government generally. This is the lowest score since Gallup started asking the question more than 40 years ago.
This is an explosive situation likely to give rise to civil unrest sooner or later. People will only put up with crap for so long. You never know what can happen in a country with a belligerent history and hundreds of millions of guns in households.
As much as I dislike Obama, the Republicans are also an embarrassment. Both parties are locked in infantile chicanery with such obvious partisanship and little care for compromise to advance the common good. It’s democracy at its worst.
