Gallup Poll: 72% Say Big Goverment is Greatest Threat to America Than Big Business or Big Labor … Total Rejection of Obama, Nanny State Liberalism
Looks like America might just know tyranny when they see it …
According to the latest Gallup poll, an astonishing 72% of Americans now say that “BIG” government is the greatest threat to America as compared with big business and big labor. WOW!!!
The PJ Tatler makes an astute observation that has a lot of merit, see the chart below and notice when the noticeable upward trend began in 2009. Hmm, what happened then? Of course this boost in Americans fear of big government has everything to do with the so-called “Hope & Change” that they voted for in electing Barack Obama. It would appear that the folks at Hot Air noticed the remarkable trajectory as well. He promised transparency and delivered something quite different. What’s the matter America, you have a problem with the IRS enforcing Obamacare? Personally, I think they need to start including the MSM in these polls as well.
America, wake the hell up and make a stand against “BIG GOVERNMENT” liberalism or it will be here to stay. Elections matter, get out and vote against it if you feel strongly against it!!!
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.
I would also add this upswing has in part to do with a bunch of gutless, establishment RINO’s who think that it is more important to sell ouch their Republican principles and protecting “We the People” as opposed to retain their power.
Mavericky RINO Senator John McCain Says Republicans Voting Against Budget Deal Lack ‘Intellectual Integrity’ … Um, President Ronald Reagan Would Disagree
So this is what the Republican party has become in 2013, and this sorry, mavericky RINO was nominated the GOP’s presidential candidate in 2008, ever wonder why you lost?
RINO John McCain (R-AZ) called out Republicans who would dare oppose a bad budget deal that does nothing to reduce the out of control spending and the +$17 trillion debt. McCain said that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity”. Really sir, you may want to look up that definition as you are exactly what is wrong with the GOP and the lack of any integrity to stand for the American people, the catastrophic escalating debt and our hero soldiers. So this is about some gutless GOP Senators worried about a government shutdown, rather than the collapse of the USA with unsustainable spending? A bunch of establishment RINO’s are more concerned on how a shut down will effect them, rather than being statesmen and doing the right thing for the American people? UNREAL … sadly we have become a government of, by and for the
American People establishment government class.
Spending is increased; however, the budget comes at the expense of our heroes, injured veterans who have given of their body and mind to the defense of this nation to have their benefits reduced. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Civilian workers do not face the same benefit cuts, it is on the backs of our wounded warriors. You should all be ashamed of yourself. So this is what bi-partisanship looks like, agreeing on crap? And a note to the GOP … I am sick of your excuse that you only control the House, these gutless RINO’s would have done the same if they controlled the Senate.
Senate Democrats actually block an amendment to restore veteran benefits by closing illegal immigrant welfare loophole and still these treasonous 12 Republican Senators voted for this rotten bill. So illegal immigrants were just treated better than the men and women who have givens arms, legs, mind body and soul to defend America. That my GOP turncoats would be the definition of a lack of “Intellectual Integrity”. As stated at The Right Wing News, we all know that the Dems prefer illegals to our military vets, but my issue is with the GOP traitors. I expect this kind of crap from the LEFT, I do not expect it from Republicans. And we wonder why establishment Republicans are being primary challenged.
Senate Republicans were unable to stop military pension cuts when Senate Democrats blocked a vote on an amendment to prevent the cuts by closing a welfare loophole for illegal immigrants Tuesday evening.
The two-year budget deal brokered by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, would cut military pensions by $6 billion over ten years, leaving some Senate Republicans scrambling to stop the cuts.
The US Senate voted 67-33 with
RONALD REGAN WOULD DISAGREE WITH MC RINO. For all of those who have said that Reagan would not agree with the Tea Party, you have no clue. Reagan left the Democrat party, stating, I did not leave the Democrat party, the party left me. Sadly, the Dutch would probably say the same thing today and leave the GOP.
I want you to listen to what Ronald Reagan said during a 1975 interview with Johnny Carson on ‘The Tonight Show” and his brilliance of what he spoke of then, that is even more applicable today. Reagan had it right, government was not the solution, it was the problem. The US, its people, business and the economy would work gang-busters if the government got out of the way. The VIDEO below is a must watch.
“If government would shut the doors and sneak away for about three weeks, we would never miss them” – Ronald Reagan (1975)
Remember when Ronald Reagan responded to Johnny Carson in 1975 on how do you balance the budget? Reagan said, “balance the budget is like protecting your virtue, you just have to learn to say no.” I guess we now know where Nancy Reagan got her idea against drugs to “Just Say No”.
OMG … Boy This VIDEO Makes Me Want To Sign Up for Obamacare or Puke … Drop It Like It’s Hot, What You Mean Like Indivuals Canceled Insurance Plans?
YUP, OBAMA HAS FINALLY FOUND HIS SECRET WEAPON AS TO WHAT IS GOING TO MAKE THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF AMERICA SIGN UP FOR OBAMACARE …
Your tax dollars hard at work, the below video is part of the White House’s new celebrity PR push to get young people to enroll in Obamacare. I will say this, if this VIDEO actually gets young people to sign up for Obamacare then we might as well kiss it all good bye because this country has no future. When I first saw this I thought it was making fun of Obamacare, I never thought it was actually trying to promote it.
One question, does Obamacare cover it if one gets physically ill after watching this VIDEOt?

While Americans were sleeping, the US debt jumped a record $328 billion in one day on Thursday and now is over $17 trillion. The jump was not a result of new spending, but instead because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures”.
U.S. debt jumped a record $328 billion on Thursday, the first day the federal government was able to borrow money under the deal President Obama and Congress sealed this week.
The debt now equals $17.075 trillion, according to figures the Treasury Department posted online on Friday.
The $328 billion increase shattered the previous high of $238 billion set two years ago.
The giant jump comes because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures” — the federal funds it borrowed from over the last five months as it tried to avoid bumping into the debt ceiling.
The PJ Tatler could not have stated it any better when it comes to the games that only the government is allowed to play.
This robbing Peter to pay Paul nonsense should be banned — especially since neither Peter or Paul have any extra cash anyway. If the feds were a private business, they would have been arrested, tried, and convicted for cooking the books long ago.
Senator Ted Cruz Rips Senate Debt Agreement That Ignores Obamacare … Once Again The Washington Establishment is Refusing to Listen to the American People”
And the real losers of the Senate debt agreement are the American People …
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks the truth in a press conference yesterday following the announcement that Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had struck a deal to open the partially closed government and extend the debt limit. Cruz blasted the agreement for its lack of protecting the people, jobs and America against the train-wreck known as Obamacare.
Cruz blasted the Washington, DC status quo and establishment for continuing down the same path that got us to a $17 trillion debt. Maybe it truly is time for a Third Party because the GOP and Democrats do not seem to be the answer for America.
Kentucky Kickback … Senate McConnell-Reid Deal Includes $2 Billion Earmark for Kentucky Dam Project … Make that $3 Billion
UNBELIEVABLE … AND WE THE PEOPLE WONDER WHY WE HAVE A $17 TRILLION DEBT WHEN WE HAVE GOP ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS LIKE THIS …
So as the MSM is telling you who are the “winners” and “losers” of the government shutdown ending, add Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to the list of greedy winners. Why you ask? As reported at WFPL News, the deal between Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) included a $2 billion, oops sorry … $3 billion earmark for a Kentucky
damn dam project. And you wonder why McConnell pushed this bill in the Senate?
But it’s only $2 billion, oh I misspoke, I meant $3 trillion
A proposal to end the government shutdown and avoid default orchestrated by Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic Leader Harry Reid includes a nearly $3 billion earmark for a Kentucky project.
Language in a draft of the McConnell-Reid deal (see page 13, section 123) provided to WFPL News shows a provision that increases funding for the massive Olmsted Dam Lock in Paducah, Ky., from $775 million to nearly $2.9 billion.
The dam is considered an important project for the state and region in regards to water traffic along the Ohio River.
We wonder why “establishment” republicans hate the Tea Party and those elected to office to reduce spending and the debt? The GOP power elite is just as bad as the Democrats and Barack Obama. They are just as respinsible for a bloated $17 trillion debt and seem to care little about reducing it. I could not agree more with The Gateway Pundit when Jim says, “This looks really bad, Mitch — Really, really bad.”
So we have a federal debt about to go over $17 trillion, the debt limit has just been raised, government spending is continuing to be out of control and unsustainable and we have establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell getting theirs and making matters worse. Yet some how it is fiscal minded Conservatives like Sens.Ted Cruz (R-TX)Rand Paul, Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) who are called crazy, dangerous extremists. God help this country. However, as the Lonely Conservative correctly states, the real “losers” in this are the American People!
This is exactly the reason why “establishment” Republicans who have forgotten what it means to be a Republican need to be primary challenged.
Did Mitch McConnell not learn from what happened to Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) and the Corn Husker Kickback?

Establishment Republicans Surrender … House Passes Senate Bill to Reopen Government and Increase Debt Limit 285-144 … Senate Passes Bill 81-18
Speaker Boehner and GOP cave … In a country that already spends more than it takes it, irresponsible politicians kick the can down the road and raise the debt limit to spend even more money that America does not have.
Tonight the US Senate and House of Representatives passes the Senate led bill to end the partial government shutdown and increase the debt limit. The Senate passed the bill 81 to 18 and the House voted in favor of it 285 to 144. Incredibly, not one Democrat in the House or Senate voted against raising the debt on “We the People”. Imagine that? CNN reports that President Barack Obama will sign it immediately. The director of the Office of Management and Budget said that federal workers should expect to return to work Thursday morning. Hmm, does this mean that open air monuments will be open to of military veteran heroes?
In Obama’s speech tonight there was no reference to the GOP as terrorists or hostage takers … where is the evil rhetoric Mr. President?
Congressional Republicans conceded defeat on Wednesday in their bitter budget fight with President Obama over the new health care law as the House and Senate approved last-minute legislation ending a disruptive 16-day government shutdown and extending federal borrowing power to avert a financial default with potentially worldwide economic repercussions.
With the Treasury Department warning that it could run out of money to pay national obligations within a day, the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday evening, 81 to 18, to approve a proposal hammered out by the chamber’s Republican and Democratic leaders after the House on Tuesday was unable to move forward with any resolution. The House followed suit a few hours later, voting 285 to 144 to approve the Senate plan, which would fund the government through Jan. 15 and raise the debt limit through Feb. 7.
Most House Republicans opposed the bill, but 87 voted to support it. The breakdown showed that Republican leaders were willing to violate their informal rule against advancing bills that do not have majority Republican support in order to end the shutdown. All 198 Democrats voting supported the measure.
From Business Insiders, Here’s The Bill That’s Going To End The Government Shutdown And Raise The Debt Ceiling.
A list of the 18 Republican Senators who voted against the Bill that will raise the debt and continue the out of control, drunken spending of politicians.
UPDATE I: All the House, Senate and President have done is kick the can down the road and solve nothing. No one wants to make the tough and responsible decisions because we have politicians who care more about their power and their agenda than they do “We the People” or the United States of America. Honestly, who in their right mind thinks that a country can continue to borrow billions of dollars a day and actually sustain itself?
The All Too Many Lies from Barack Obama on Obamacare … Obamacare Will Increase Underlying Insurance Rates for Younger Men by an Average of 97% to 99%
Remember when Barack Obama said that Obamacare would reduce healthcare premiums, HE LIED!!!
From Forbes comes the following: Double Down: Obamacare Will Increase Avg. Individual-Market Insurance Premiums By 99% For Men, 62% For Women. For those of you who thought that Obamacare was free, you might want to rethink that. Obama promised you who thought you could keep your doctor, HE LIED! Obama promised you could keep your health coverage, HE LIED!
The train wreck is coming down the tracks courtesy of Barack Obama and Democrats …
Based on a Manhattan Institute analysis of the HHS numbers, Obamacare will increase underlying insurance rates for younger men by an average of 97 to 99 percent, and for younger women by an average of 55 to 62 percent. Worst off is North Carolina, which will see individual-market rates triple for women, and quadruple for men.
HHS releases a trickle of data and a load of spin
Earlier this month, I and two colleagues from the Manhattan Institute—Yevgeniy Feyman and Paul Howard—published an interactive map that detailed Obamacare’s impact on individually-purchased health insurance premiums in 13 states plus D.C. As the accompanying article described, Obamacare increased premiums in those states by an average of 24 percent.
Go learn the bad news at from the HHS 15 page report.
Oh, and remember when he said he would never raise taxes on the middle class … HE LIED THERE TOO AS WELL.
More failed promises of Obamacare at NRO.
WHAT A COMPLETE FIASCO!!!

The Divider in Chief Barack Obama: Republicans Who Don’t Support Obamacare Want to Hurt the Sick and Stick It to Americans … Oh the Irony, Obama Has Stuck it To America For Years
Even on vacation Barack Obama takes time away from golfing to prove he is a liar, a hate monger and the Divider in Chief …
Barack Obama starts out by saying over the past two weeks he has been visiting with Americans across the country to secure a better bargain with the middle class. Obama stated we needed to rebuild an economy that rewarded hard work and responsibility and “an economy built on the corner stones of middle class life, good jobs, a good educations, a home of your own, a secure retirement and quality, affordable health care. What a joke, who does this rodeo clown think he is kidding? Obama has had how long to fix the economy? Instead he made Obamacare his number one priority as Democrats had control of the House and Senate. The result was, along partisan line, Democrats and Obama forced Obamacare down the throats of Americans. Now this failed healthcare plan is hated by Americans. No body wants it. Not just Republicans, but the very people who passed it. It is Obama who has put in delays into the implementation of Obamacare. Let’s not forget this delay of out-of-pocket expenses that will cost Americans. It is labor unions, federal government employees, the IRS and Democrat politicians who suddenly want to be no part of Obamacare, while others are supposed to be forced onto the train wreck. Barack Obama promised the American public that would of the pillars of Obamacare was that keep your own insurance. Guess what, “HE LIED!!!”
Even on vacation Obama finds time to make a hate-filled, slanderous Weekly Address to blame Republicans for his failure as a President. Instead of acting like a leader, Obama continues to play Chicago style, hate politics and to divide and conquer. His Weekly Address was shameful. Nothing more than completely shameful. It is reprehensible that the United States elected such a miserable, hateful individual who just lies to the American people to make political points. But, anyone who dares questions him is a racist. However, one thing is for certain Powerline call is it 100% correctly … Barack Obama, the hardest working man in demagogy
It is pathetic that Obama is still campaigning for Obamacare. But just curious, how did healthcare become a right endowed by Our Creator? Oh, because Obama said say by decree.
From the White House website Aug. 17, 2013:
Many Members of Congress, in both parties, are working hard to inform their constituents about these benefits, protections, and affordable plans. But there’s also a group of Republicans in Congress working hard to confuse people, and making empty promises that they’ll either shut down the health care law, or, if they don’t get their way, they’ll shut down the government.[Editors note: Who is making empty promises? Obamacare was nothing more than a lie. Remember when Obama said, “If you like your health plan, you can keep it?” Remember when Obama guaranteed that ObamaCare would “lower premiums by $2,500 per family per year?” Obama also promised that is you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, PERIOD! However, as stated at Town Hall, pretty much ever promise made was a lie. The reality is that just the opposite has occurred. Obama made promises he knew he could not keep, but it sounded good during an election as he knew the truth would not come out until after he was reelected for a second term. Now Obama looks to delay certain parts of Obamacare that are a disaster so that Democrats will not be affected in the 2014 midterms.What about all the jobs that Obamacare was supposed to create? Jobs created for who, the IRS?
Think about that. They’re actually having a debate between hurting Americans who will no longer be denied affordable care just because they’ve been sick – and harming the economy and millions of Americans in the process. And many Republicans are more concerned with how badly this debate will hurt them politically than they are with how badly it’ll hurt the country. [Editors note: These threats sound like the same ones he made about sequestration. Remember how Obama and Democrats said that sequestration cuts would damage the economy?
A lot of Republicans seem to believe that if they can gum up the works and make this law fail, they’ll somehow be sticking it to me. But they’d just be sticking it to you. [Editors note: Obamacare is a jobs killer. Who's sticking it to who? 74% of business are either going to fire or make employees part time. Just how small is Barack Obama. He thinks this is about sticking it to him. His disaster of a healthcare plan is sticking it to America. It was Democrat Senator Max Baucus, one of the architects of Obama care who is now calling it a train wreck.
Remember these promises America … They were all lies and that is why so many Americans are against Obamacare
Some even say that if you call their office with questions about the law, they’ll refuse to help. Call me old-fashioned – but that’s lousy constituent service. And it’s not what you deserve.
Your health insurance isn’t something to play politics with. Our economy isn’t something to play politics with. This isn’t a game. This is about the economic security of millions of families. [editors note: All Obama has done is play politics with health care and jobs. Who is delaying parts Obamacare until after the 2014 midterm elections? Who has done nothing to create jobs, full-time one, not part-time. Folks, Obamacare is such a joke that half of Affordable Care Act Call Center jobs will be Part-Time and will come with no Health Benefits benefits. Oh the irony.
See, in the states where governors and legislatures and insurers are working together to implement this law properly – states like California, New York, Colorado and Maryland – competition and consumer choice are actually making insurance affordable.
So I’m going to keep doing everything in my power to make sure this law works as it’s supposed to. Because in the United States of America, health insurance isn’t a privilege – it is your right. And we’re going to keep it that way.
Thanks. And have a great weekend.
Yea America, have a good weekend as I pander to the middle class about jobs and then vacation with the ultra rich on the tax payers dime. You have a good weekend while Egypt burns and falls into complete chaos while I golf. Every one have a good weekend as I deflect the attention away from the fact that I am a total failure as president and create division and blame others.
NO HE DIDN’T … BARACK OBAMA REFERRED TO DISTRACTIONS IN WASHINGTON AS PHONY SCANDALS!!!
Is Obama done speaking yet … Good grief this might have been one of the worst, rambling speeches I have ever heard. President Barack Obama’s speech on the economy was touted as being an important speech to help the economy and job growth. Instead, all we got from the “community agitator” was the same old tired economic agenda from Obama, blame Republicans and a new smear … calling the scandals that have plagued the Obama White House, “phoney scandals”. Even the WAPO had to print that Barack Obama’s new economic plan was the same as his old plan. One that has failed, provided more debt to the United States and has given us the worst economic post recession job growth period in history. What was the point of this speech? It certainly could not have been to bring Republicans and Democrats together to solve the problems of a floundering US economy. Phony scandals? Seriously, Barack Obama thinks the death of border agent Brina Terry as a result of Fast & Furious is a phony scandal? Obama thinks that the death of four Americans in Benghazi, including Ambassador Chris Stevens a phony scandal when it was the Obama WH that put forth a false and phony narrative that the terror attack was a result of a video? Who scrubbed the Benghazi talking points Mr. President? And the targeting of Conservative and Tea Party organizations by the IRS that was said to be only a couple of rogue agents and has now spread to many offices, Washington, DC and the White House counsel, that is a phony scandal as well? Wasn’t it President Obama who called this outrageous behavior? Now it is a phony scandal as it gets closer and closer to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. What about the going after of AP reports and James Rosen of Fox News, those were phony scandals as well?
What Obama is counting on: Hey America, you bough my BS for 5 years and 2 elections … what’s another 1200 days?
You could be forgiven if you thought you had heard President Obama’s speech on the economy today before. Because you have. For most of the 2012 campaign. (Don’t trust us, read Obama’s 2012 acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.)
Things are getting better in areas like private sector job creation, home construction, energy independence and health care. But, the country isn’t all the way back yet. Republicans are looking out for the wealthiest Americans at the expense of the middle class. Times need to change.
“With an endless parade of distraction, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Obama told a crowd at Knox College in Illinois this afternoon. “And I am here to say this needs to stop.” Later in the speech, Obama vowed: “I will not allow gridlock, inaction or willful indifferences to get in our way.”
That’s a nice rhetorical flourish and there are, without doubt, some things that Obama can make happen in regards the economy via executive order. But, to make any major progress — a grand bargain on debt and spending for example — President Obama needs Congress, including the House that remained in GOP hands in 2012 despite his stronger-than-expected victory on the same day.
From The Weekly Standard: Older, But Not Wiser – Obama’s first speech in a series is a predictable bust.
Speaker of the House John Boehner ripped the president for his speech, Obama speech ‘an Easter Egg with no candy’. Personally I thing my comparison would have been a bit more harsh than providing the illusions of a fluffy bunny. Americans are suffering and all people should be sick and tired of a class warfare president who is more intent on making political points than helping “We the People”. Obama’s agenda has failed and if we give this failure any more lip service, the USA will look like Detroit.
Just how bad was Obama’s speech … it had bipartisan support against it!
Who knew that the Democrats Obamamessiah would turn into Richard Nixon and call all the scandals that mired his administration false and phony. Welcome to Chicago-style politics. President Obama has no intentions of fixing anything. Obama is doubling down on his failed policies and looking to blame others for his actions and agenda. WAKE UP AMERICA … IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL THE USA IS GOING TO BE DETROIT.
