Highest Rate of Distrust in Government

About 80 percent of Americans say they do not trust the U.S. government to do the right thing

Only one fifth  of Americans say they trust the government “just about always” or “most of the time,” a Pew Research Center survey said.

The distrust of the government is at an all-time record since a previous high of 73 percent during the Eisenhower administration in 1958, when the issue of “trust” was first included in a national survey, Pew Research said.

What is causing the huge distrust in the government? Pew cites economic uncertainty, overwhelming discontent with Congress, distrust of the elected officials among other reasons for to the current wave of public distrust.

Only about 25 percent of the 5,000 people who were surveyed said they thought the Congress was functioning at some level, the lowest rate of confidence in a quarter o a century, Pew said.

Mr Obama will probably be remembered as the President who fired the final shot that killed America!

    Our government primarily benefits the rich at the expense of the citizens. The system is out-of-control; it is undermining our Constitutional rights and is devastating the environment.
