Most Americans See Government as "Threat to Rights" For First Time

Trust in established institutions continues to plummet
Paul Joseph Watson


A new poll released by the Pew Research Center has found that a majority of Americans now see the government as a threat to their rights for the first time ever.

A total of 53% of Americans view the government as a threat to their “personal rights and freedoms,” with 43% not believing it poses a threat and 4 don’t knows.

The poll also found, “Only 26% saying they can trust government always or most of the time, while 73% say they can trust the government only some of the time or never. Majorities across all partisan and demographic groups express little or no trust in government.”

Just 20% of whites trust the federal government while a mere 26% of Americans across the board view Congress favorably, in comparison with 50% of the public regarding Congress favorably in 2009.

The poll arrives in the aftermath of a separate Rasmussen survey that found just 6 per cent of Americans now rate the mainstream news media as “very trustworthy”.

Faith in the integrity of established institutions has eroded steadily since the Obama administration took office.

In 2011, pollster Pat Caddell warned that Americans were “pre-revolutionary” after a survey found that just 17 per cent of Americans believed that the U.S. government had the consent of the governed, an all time low.

The founding fathers routinely espoused the view that skepticism of those in power was a healthy and patriotic stance. However, trust in government has plummeted so drastically that it is beginning to pose a threat to the very fabric of society.

That’s why many are concerned that the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies are gearing up for widespread civil unrest by stockpiling weapons and ammunition.

Instead of rebuilding trust in the system by changing their behavior, becoming more transparent, and respecting the Constitution, federal agencies are increasingly treating the American public as an enemy that needs to be closely watched and defended against physically via a massive arms build up.
