    "Washington (CNN) – 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."
    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - CNN Poll: Majority says government a threat to citizens’ rights - Blogs from CNN.com


    Those on the right believe Government based on 1. consent of the governed, 2. limited government…limited in purpose, but not weak: powerful in protecting rights, 3. responsible Constitutionalism: the government is responsible to the people, not responsible for them. (should not take on too many jobs.)

    For those on the left, the government must become the Administrative State, involved in every aspect of our lives.

    Looks like most folks have made their choice.

    PC...you right wingers LOVE REALLY BIG government...especially when it kills, arrests and executes human beings. Then it is just doing 'God's' work...

    But heaven forbid our government try to help We, the People...

    We face a generation of gross ignorance, strongly centered in people like YOU. A degenerate and immoral group of cretins totally brainwashed by modern day Goebbels like Karl Rove, Grover Norquist, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Frank Luntz ...

    I DO pummel the straw (wo)man...YOU...

    Your question is simple obfuscation...
