    Most of the 75% WILL trust the “government” to the extent that they will file the Confession Forms this April 15 and send this mistrusted “government” a large chunk of their hard-earned cash.

  • Don't be hating!

    BURN DOWN THE FEDERAL RESERVE! They lie/steal/cheat/degrade the people. They bailed out the banks with our Tax Dollars. The NYC Stock Exchange is a FRAUD for the BANKSTERS and steal from the American people. It is all corrupt! Federal Goverment is an EVIL Empire!

    I don’t think that figure is accurate. When you have almost 50% on some sort of gov’t subsidy they can’t afford to not support the “Great White Father”.

      Dunno… I very seldom trust people who give me anything for free… especially cellphones: I always ask, “is this thing stolen?” and the answer is always, “No.” So I’m getting stuff from proven liars. Would you trust someone who says you’re greedy if you want to keep your own money but not if you keep other people’s money in subsidies?

    Where liberty is considered inalienable in America, the U.S. Government has set itself apart from the people in such a manner over the past 60 years that the government deserves every bit of suspicion as a tyrannical fascist corporatocracy. Don’t believe me, please consider the commands that Congress, the Supreme Court and the Executive branches all take from Exxon, Goldman Sachs, the Waltons, Microsoft, etc, ect adnuaseum are directed to follow by the lobbyist whores that suck the life out of the American Way of Life.

      How many times do we have to be told, “some are more equal than others”?
