Poll: Americans fear ‘big government’

As big government grows bigger, Americans’ distrust of it continues to balloon right along with it.

Respondents to  a Gallup poll released Monday overwhelmingly picked “big government” as the greatest threat to the country in the future, with 64 percent choosing it over “big business” and “big labor.” The result fell just one point shy of a record high in the poll, which Gallup has conducted since 1965. Distrust of government has jumped nine percentage points since 2009.

Even self-described  Democrats, a demographic more prone to fear the power of corporations, indicate an increased distrust of government. And that’s with a Democratic Party president in the White House.

“Almost half of Democrats now say big government is the biggest threat to the nation, more than say so about big business, and far more than were concerned about big government in March 2009,” Gallup analyst Elizabeth Mendes said.

December 15th being Bill of Rights Day, this special episode of Tenther Radio focuses on two of the greatest threats to your rights today – the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and the FDA. Joining Michael Boldin as co-host – Robert Scott Bell.

Dr. Nick Gonzalez joins Michael and Robert as guests, and tells his view of how centralized power is always damaging to your basic rights to determine your own health, food and nutritional choices – some of the most basic decisions that could and should be made by an individual. He also shares his understanding of history – how the great tyrannies of modern times gave people centralized control over these important issues – with the result of shorter and shorter life spans. The message? Centralized power is dangerous to your freedom – and your health.
