    Big surprise.. the people are unhappy with the Government and another big surprise, Obama and the Democratic Party aren't making it any better. But.. not so quick, if you read through the link, Republicans aren't faring all that much better than the Democrats.

    Sooo the question is, what can we do about it? Voting doesn't seem to be working..

    By almost every conceivable measure Americans are less positive and more critical of government these days. A new Pew Research Center survey finds a perfect storm of conditions associated with distrust of government -- a dismal economy, an unhappy public, bitter partisan-based backlash, and epic discontent with Congress and elected officials.

    Rather than an activist government to deal with the nation's top problems, the public now wants government reformed and growing numbers want its power curtailed. With the exception of greater regulation of major financial institutions, there is less of an appetite for government solutions to the nation's problems -- including more government control over the economy -- than there was when Barack Obama first took office.

    It would help to get away from the two party system and limit the influence of big money.
