Washington's governing elites think we're all morons, a new study says

Voters are angry at the political establishment and the political establishment doesn’t much care for the voters either. In fact, they think voters are pretty damn stupid.

That’s the conclusion of a new survey of America’s unelected governing elites by political scientists at Johns Hopkins University. While media outlets endlessly poll and probe the American people to understand why they feel so disenchanted with their government, Professor Benjamin Ginsberg and Senior Lecturer Jennifer Bachner instead looked at America’s political ruling class for answers. The federal bureaucrats, think tank leaders, and congressional staff members they surveyed, Ginsberg said in an interview with VICE News, “have no idea what Americans think and they don’t care. They think Americans are stupid and should do what they are told.”

It seems that the disenchantment is mutual.

    there is no government,. what they want you to believe is government is nothing more than a myriad of private for profit corporations! 28 USC 3002 (15) “United States” means— (A) a Federal corporation;

    Have you ever heard of the supreme court? check out the following link where they PROUDLY state the following;
    We are a privately held company in Washington, DC proudly doing business for 226 years.

    How about the US Congress? We are a privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about the US Senate? A privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about the FBI? We are a privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about the IRS??? A privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about the US Army? We are a privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about States? A privately held company in Washington, DC.

    How about Your local counties?? A privately held company in Tucson, AZ.

    How about your local police department? A privately held company in Tucson, AZ

    It’s all FRAUD! There is no government, NONE! They are “private for profit SERVICE CORPORATIONS”

    Here’s a kicker,. NONE of their “so called” LAWS actually apply to you! Oh they believe their laws apply to you, they’ll tell you they apply to you,. Through decades of propaganda and indoctrination, they’ve convinced themselves and all of us that their pretended COPYRIGHTED PRIVATE STATUTES that they call laws, apply to everyone. THEY DON’T!
    All “pretend” government employees have been told that their laws apply, they all believe their laws apply, but when you ask them to prove it, without resorting to fraud, lies, deceit, hearsay, rumors, threats and or actual violence. They can’t actually produce any evidence proving any of it actually applies to you!

    Ask them, what evidence do they rely on that proves that their CONstitution and subsequent legislation “ie laws” apply to you simply because of your physical location within a particular geographic area.
    They’ll inevitably point to the “pretend” laws in their books, but as any attorney will tell you, legal citations aren’t evidence!
    Then, they’ll tell you about all the people they’ve put in jail/prison, but that’s not evidence that proves any of it applies to you! that’s aside from the fact that none of the people they defrauded into prison asked them to prove their lies, um i mean laws, apply! and it shows you that they’re willing to commit fraud to make you believe their lies!
    They’ll drone on about their CONstitution, but you didn’t sign it thereby contracting to be bound by it, did you? of course not! Oddly, ALL government employees are required to sign an oath “contract” to be bound by and to obey the pretended governments CONstitution and statutes/laws.. You would think if it already applied to everyone, why are the CORPORATIONS employees required to sign a CONTRACT/oath..
    Then they’ll tell you that you drive and your drivers license makes it all apply.. hmm don’t they arrest people who don’t have licenses? yup, they do.. so that negates that stupidity, doesn’t it? yes it does! Further; if you are coerced, threatened, are under duress or fraudulently forced to sign some agreement or accept some mandatory contract, it is automatically voided “according to their own law” which is highly amusing but they never see their own crimes!

    After you’ve shot down all of their beliefs, opinions and LIES, every single time I’ve had this conversation with any government wonk or statist, they will tell you, IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE LAWS HERE, LEAVE! My answer is always the same, I tell them, but I’m not the one committing fraud, why should I leave!! They storm away or hang up the phone at this point!
