Poll: People May Be Catching On...

From the Communist News Network:

A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll.

Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government's become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.

The survey indicates a partisan divide on the question: only 37 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Independents and nearly 7 in 10 Republicans say the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans. [Continued]

The problem is that, once the Democrats are out of power, the Republicans will take over and pursue exactly the same policies - only a bit milder, which makes it all the more dangerous because they will camouflage their statism with free-market rhetoric and thus discredit it. The American people, who are unfortunately (like the masses in any countries) ignorant in political issues will instinctively feel the false nature of those Republicans and vote for the Democrats again. And then the cycle will go on and on and on.... Until something big happens. What would that be?

I'm involved in a pretty large grass roots movement group and I'm exerting quite a bit of influence. The strategy that we've come up with is to look at the political terrain as two battlefronts - phoney conservatives in the Republican party known as RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) and of course, the Democrats. It is a no-brainer that Democrats need to bite the dust, but the Republicans they need to be infiltrated and the RINOs weeded out. This is precisely our strategy from the local level on up. It will not happen over night, but there are enough Americans shocked by the course of things that we have already begun taking on the statists en masse. It is a race against time, and many dedicated Americans are taking this seriously. Constitutional government and market economics is a common bond among these people.
